First of all - I have good news. I hate talking about myself but I am going to pat myself on the back for a job well done and say something profound (I hope)
1 - I just sold my 5,000th copy!! I never imagined I would get this far. I was happy with my first 100.
2 - My little book, Untraceable finally made the top 100 books of all ebooks last night at midnight. Got up to #63 - now around #80 - over some big names.
3 - Untraceable is #3 in children/action and adventure just under The Hunger Games and Catching Fire (yes I am above MockingJay - WTF??)
Holy crap right!!!!!!!!!
INSERT PEP TALK HERE!
Guys - you will never fully know what this means to me after everything I've been through...after all the people who told me I could not do this. After those who turned their back on me...and those who felt like I wasn't good enough.
This isn't about money or fame - this is about following my heart and dream no matter what
the naysayers had to nay about.
So I tell you - DON'T GIVE UP!
Sometimes your dream doesn't look the way you expect or may not be the way other's think it should be...
But that doesn't mean you can't make it happen! You just have to follow you heart and do what is right for you.
Thanks for all your support! I would not be here without you guys.

I will be talking about my indie pubbing experience and marketing - everything I've done over the last few months. The pros and cons - the goods and bads.
