Author Turned Blogger
Saturday mornings are my quiet mornings. Gregg and Kaylee typically sleep in – they’re the sleepers of the family. The boys don’t really sleep in, well, ever (5:30 this morning), but once they’re up and I feed them (the only morning of the week I give them cold cereal), I put in a full length feature film for them (Spider-Man 3 this morning), and spend the next 90-120 minutes surfing Pinterest uninterrupted.
Cold cereal and a television babysitter – I know — Mom of the Year Material.
This morning, however, was a bit different. This morning I spent a good portion of that time answering fan mail! I often get Hallee the Homemaker mail throughout the week, and try to answer it as it comes in (or as quickly as I can get to it). But, this morning I cleaned out my spam mail in my Hallee Bridgeman, Author, email and had fan mail that had been sitting there!
What an encouraging, uplifting, exciting morning! It makes me (almost) want to forgo that whole Pinterest break and catch another 90-120 minutes of writing time a week.
One reader said this:
When your books came out, I didn’t buy them. I was a little skeptical at purchasing books that a blogger wrote. I didn’t know if I would like it…I am now a huge fan of your books and look forward to any future books you write…maybe I have a new favorite Christian author!!
I saw something recently a blogger said about writing a book. “You’re not validated as a blogger until you’re selling some book you wrote in your sidebar.” That gave me pause. Maybe because I’m not really a blog reader, I didn’t really pay attention to a trend in bloggers-turned-author.
I’m actually an author-turned-blogger. So, if you’re like this reader and are skeptical because I’m just another blogger with a book in the sidebar, you might want to give them a try! Everywhere the books are sold — Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, All Romance eBooks, and Goodreads, you can read about a quarter of the book for free in a sample. You may find that you love them, too!
And, if you’ve read any of The Jewel Trilogy, I’d LOVE to hear from you! I would also really love it if you would leave a review wherever you bought it (or on Goodreads). Positive reviews help people find me.
I’m so grateful for your visit, today.
You would bless me if you added me to your feed reader or subscribed via email.
You can also become a fan on Facebook or follow me on Twitter. I would love to see more of you!
