Just a quick post tonight… I’m in the middle of sending ebooks out to troops stationed overseas for Memorial Day and it’s turning out to be a lot more labor intensive than I thought.  It’s part of Operation eBook Drop sponsored by Smashwords.

The bulk email list isn’t working for me so every email has to be copy and pasted multiple times from a list of what seems like a thousand at least.  I can’t complain tho – I’m sitting here in my kitchen next to my sons while I work.  They are far away missing their families.  I can do a little copy and pasting gladly.

Because No Money Marketing just came out I’m sending that as well as End of Mae.  The new Marketing has been available for less than 24 hours and it was at #51 in top Amazon books in its class earlier today.  By the time I got back to my computer it was already back up to 61.  I, of course, had to screenshot the accomplishment anyways.  I think I’ll print it and slide it in the photo album next to my kids as a joke for them to find someday.

Sending No Money Marketing overseas as a gift to our soldiers seems like a good way to start it off with some good karma ;p With all that karma maybe I will see a glimpse of #1.  THAT would be worth a screenshot to frame on my wall.  I keep refreshing the page hoping it will climb back up.

Until then, I’m back to copy, pasting and sending ebook codes while I chat with my sons (with the occasional refresh).  It’s the least I can do for those out there who are doing so much for me with so much less.
