This week on my journey has had some highs but mostly lows. Some of the lows can just be chalked up to life (i.e., slow computer, unexpected dental work that caused me to be less than productive). Other lows have definitely tried my patience and drained my energy. The biggest low has been discovering that my books are not listed under the correct category on Amazon. Currently, Amazon has over five million physical books and over one million ebooks. This essentially means that searching for my books have been like searching for righteous souls in Sodom and Gomorraha. Thankfully, neither of my books has been turned into a pillar of salt and Amazon responded right away to my request that each book be correctly categorized. Amazon has assured me within 72 hours each book will arrive safely in the proverbial Zoar.
While I wait for each book to make it to Zoar; marketing efforts have been put on hold. But on this journey there is always plenty to do. Some of the things I will be working on over the next week are finishing the supplement material for My Journey with Jesus Christ, starting the supplement material for Why We Give Gifts (thank you again to my youngest sister, Tayniesha, who has agreed to help me), exploring affiliates programs to increase exposure of both books and updating my website.
So lessons learned this week is to make sure your books are categorized correctly and check every once in a while to make sure they have not strayed off the path.
Please continue to pray for me as I pray for each of you,
P.S. if you do not have a copy of My Journey with Jesus Christ yet, a little birdie told me it will be free on October 25 & 26 via Kindle

Life happens and every now and then we are toss a curve ball but GOD has it all in control, although your marketing plans have been put on hold for now; I am working hard at trying to get your books put in the local book stores and churches in this area. Praising GOD for all of my co-worker who recently purchased books and are spreading the WORD about Teaching Christs Children Publications.
