News: New & (Sorta) Old

10,000 Reasons has been bundled and it’s free, sorta…

I’ve decided to try the Kindle Unlimited route with this book and see where that might take me as book sales have plummeted since KU’s inception. I hear all kinds of horrific stories about KU, but I decided to try it with this bundle. If you subscribe to KU, then the book is a free read. PLEASE DOWNLOAD and read all you like, as many times as you like. I get paid like $.005 cents per page that you read. (Sorta nutty how little I’ll get paid, huh?) If you don’t have KU, you can buy all four books for $5.99 rather than $2.99 each.

While the bundle is listed with KU, it will not be on sale anywhere else, as the rules state. For those of you who use iBooks, Nook, or Smashwords, you will have to wait a few months until I finish my contract with Amazon. Along with Delaney and Donovan’s, Xander and Jenna are my favorite.

For the (sorta) old news, Max and Jane are back! No, it’s not a new story. I decided to revisit GEM and her man’s blogs until I create a new blog. I’ve been on a self-imposed writing hiatus of late; I haven’t had the desire to write–crazy enough! After publishing 20+ books in a few years, I decided to explore other interests while writing my latest book when time permits. However, I miss the interaction with my Reiders. In the interim, I decided to re-publish a fan-favorite blog.

Max & Jane’s Story will be unedited, unchanged, and nothing new for you die-hard Reiders. Regardless, it’ll be nice to “get to know” these lovable characters again. Because Amazon has been very strict about giving away a book that’s for sale on Kindle, I’ll be taking down each blog before the new one is published. Make sure to read them immediately and send in your comments. Also, we will stick to the same schedule of Monday and Thursday.

For now, we’ll hang with Max & Jane. I’m reserving the right to switch blogs without notice if Elizabeth and John catch my fancy.

I wish you all a great weekend. See you Monday, again!

Ni hao!

Hi Ladies! How have you been? As you can see from the pictures, I’ve been to the other side of the world and back.

Last week, my family and I traveled to Beijing, Xi’an, and Shanghai for spring break. What an amazing time it was for all of us. It was our first time in China and the sites we visited were incredible. Because of the great firewall of China, I wasn’t able to access social media so I’m posting after the trip.

Up until now, we’d been so used to traveling to countries where they spoke English, it was difficult getting used to a country that spoke hardly any English. We spent four nights in Beijing, visiting all the famous monuments as well as the Mutianyu portion of the Great Wall of China. If you look this up on YouTube, you’ll see that visitors can take a cable car up to the wall, then toboggan down. The toboggan was probably the highlight of our stay in Beijing.

On the fifth day, we hopped on a bullet train and rode six hours to the city of Xi’an. This was technically a “pit stop” for us and not on the original itinerary. When the kids asked to see the Terracotta Warriors, I was reluctant to go six hours out of our way, but decided why not? I didn’t know if we’d ever get back to China. I’m so glad we went. For me, the Terracotta Warriors were the highlight of our trip. I was stunned by the thousands of statues all lined up for battle. Each statue was unique and the details on them were incredibly precise. I was in awe! Even after visiting all the other parts of the museum, I had to go back and see the statues one last time before leaving.

Also in Xi’an, we biked around their ancient city wall and ate at the Muslim Quarter, twice. This city was an unexpected surprise and one I’d highly recommend if you ever find yourself in China. We stayed here two nights and enjoyed every minute.

Next, we hopped on a bullet train for six hours again and found ourselves in Shanghai. I had no expectations of this city and I was shocked! Shanghai was Paris, Tokyo, and NYC all rolled into one. I couldn’t believe I was in a communist country with all the glitz and glamour. We only spent one night here and regretted the short stay. This will be a city I must revisit.

All in all, we had a phenomenal time and now, we are back to reality. Kids are back in school, we are back to work, and I need to get back to writing. There hasn’t been much progress to the latest book since we last spoke.

Before I sign off, I have an idea I want to roll by you ladies. Since there will not be another blog for a little while, I wondered what you thought about me re-publishing Max & Jane’s blogs? It would be fun to revisit, but I’m a little hesitant only because I may have to randomly cut it off when a new blog appears. What do you think? Shall we revisit our friends, Max & Jane? I’d like to hear what you think.
