Books I Published on Amazon
October is #PoweredByIndie month on Amazon. Let me say, I would not be an author without Amazon Kindle books. Amazon has given thousands of authors the opportunity to publish and sell books all on our own.
I write my books to share with each other. Mothers, daughters, sisters, friends, aunts, even teachers with their students. They are all about friendship, supporting one another, getting through difficult times, growing up, believing in ourselves, caring about others. There are questions at the end of the book to facilitate discussion. I don't care how many books I sell. I have given many of them away. I care that the message of the importance of being a good friend is shared by all who read my books.
I will forever be greatful to Amazon for providing a place for my books. I love writing.
