First signing update

Well, well, well.. my first book signing was a success! All of the books that Living Word Family Church ordered sold out!
They have ordered more and we have another signing set up for Sunday, December 11!

Something funny...
As I was signing books, I started forgetting peoples names! I was so embarrassed! These were people I have known for YEARS! They would walk up to my table and I would draw a complete blank. I felt silly :P

The book sales are doing really well online and the Kindle was released last week!

To purchase on Twinkle Twinkle Christmas Star
To purchase for Kindle: e-book
To purchase on Barnes and Noble: Twinkle Twinkle Christmas Star

Writing prompts: Sony Playstation 3

If you have ever taken any creative writing classes, you are well aware that a great way to become a better writer is to use writing prompts.
I have decided to give it a go! I will begin to write about random goes the first one:

Sony Playstation 3 bundle packages: inspired by: Playstation 3

Long ago, when you would purchase a game console, that is simply what you got...the console. All games, controllers and accessories were purchased separately. Not any more! You can definitely still purchase the game system that way, but there are other options now. You can purchase the game system in what is called a bundle. The bundles will often include games, controllers and an accessory or two!

In addition to the basic bundles, the Sony Playstation 3 can also be purchased in different increments of hard drive space. The more hard drive space the machine has, the more it may cost. However, the more hard drive space, the more memory you will have to play all of your games. The different increments are: 160 GB, 250 GB slim or 320 GB.

So, pick your GB's, pick your bundle (or not) and come home with a game center that is perfect for your family!

Welcome to my life!

Hello! Some of you may know me and others might be just meeting me for the first time. Welcome to my new author's blog!

My name is Deanna. I am a newly published author. My first book is a romance novel entitled: Twinkle, Twinkle Christmas Star. Above is a picture of the cover. Like it? My sister, Gina Louise drew it for me!

This book, which I refer fondly to as, "The Twinkle book", will be released for purchase on November 4th of this year. This is a very exciting time in my life and I have been asked to share this experience with the world through this very blog you are reading right now!

What do I plan to might ask. Well, I'm not exactly sure! Probably some things that are funny, sad and just plain weird. I'll post about the people I meet and the experiences I go through along this new road as a published author.

Thanks for stopping in! I'll be back soon :)
