special people. I met this young lady about four years ago on Twitter. She wrote the sweetest comments that were up lifting and beautiful. She would also retweet her friends. I am lucky enough to be one of her friends. Well I got the chance to go to Australia and when I told her I was coming to see her beautiful country she made sure to meet me. This makes writing even more wonderful when you meet people on line and than in person. I hope to meet other people who like to read my books. This was a special event for me. Thank you Ruby Mitova for taking the time to meet me. You are a beautiful person.
Well for you authors out there, I am trying some thing different to get attention to my books. I am trying a P.A. Personal Assistant. Her name is Nicole McClanahan PA is who I am using for this month. I will let you know how it goes. Maybe you can let me know if you have ever used a P.A. and how your experience was. Thanks.
Just a follow up. I found that using a P.A. is not selling any books. I may try again with someone else but this experiment showed me that I was advertising my book more than the P.A. was. And that even though I was putting posts on 30 book sights, no one was commenting or even looking at what I was trying to show them.
Welcome to my website. Let me tell you a little about myself. I am a mother, grandmother, paramedic, and almost at retirement. I loved writing these books and hoping that you READERS love them also. I am trying to get my books out into the reading world so I can take you away from your everyday life and into someone else's environment if just for a little while wanting to read more. Three of these books are from experiences I shared, although they are fiction but interesting. I hope you enjoy them and tell your friends about them. If you are at my event Saturday don't forget to leave me a message on here where it says comments. And if you are just browsing I would love to still hear from you. Take care and Happy Reading!!

You unlock the door with the key of imagination. Behind it and her dimension you run into a land of shadow & substance of things & ideas you just crossed into Marie's Books.
One of the things that mean the world to an author is a honest review. Authors don't make a lot of money writing books. They do it for the pleasure 0f their imagination to be captured on sheets of paper and put into a book and for the pleasure of the reader to enjoy the world they captured. The best way to thank an author is to write a review for them after you read their work. So when you read a book, whether it is from a popular author or from and Indie author you make the author smile. You make the author feel good that you read & enjoyed what they created. And you help others to decide if they want to read the book or not.
Their are 5 stars for the best book you ever read and 1 star for a bad book. Every author has to have all of them since there are so many different personalities that like to read. And the biggest lesson we have learned in life is we can't please everyone. And that is O K.
So if you pick up a book from your favorite author or a random book because you like the cover, do the author a favor. Read it, share it with your friends. Write a REVIEW.
