It’s been a really interesting week for me.

To switch websites does not seem to be a big deal there are so many out there.  But it was a big deal, it took author forever to figure out the best one, that looks good, easy for me to use  (I am a tech dummy).  Finally after a lot of hard work I found it.  I think it looks pretty good please check out my new website, please feel free to like and comment 🙂

 

 

 

I had a delightful chat on Chatting With Sherri with writer/producer/host Justin Andrew Hoke about his many and BioPhoto (1)varied projects.  We talked about his books and radio show and the new films that he is working on.  The man is the king of Steampunk!

For new authors, one of the issues as an independent or small press author is to make sure everything is right.  For instance ever since I published the second edition of my book, Fantasy Time Inc.  I have had nothing but issues with the display on some of the pages. For instance the reviews for the first edition keeps appearing on the second edition. Categories are not appearing and they are being linked together.  Also the different types of books, paperback, e-book and audio are not being linked together.  I have been working for weeks to try to make it right, cross your fingers and say a prayer for me. Some new reviews for my other two books;
