This week I was feeling very discouraged about sales—the lack of them, that is. I check my Lulu account every day and every day there are no new sales. But one day this week I checked and there was a new sale—but it was through Ingram, not Lulu. Now I paid what for me was big bucks to have my book listed through Ingram, and I knew that it would take some time to show up, so I was intrigued.

Just out of curiosity, I searched my name on Amazon, and was gobsmacked to see my memoir come up right away—and also my Story Quest Curriculum, and also two articles that I wrote for Practical Homeschooling magazine several years ago!

You know what that means? That means I get an author page on Amazon! So far all I have up are a profile photo, a brief bio, and a link to my rarely-used Twitter account. But it’s a start! Now all I need to do is get people to post positive reviews of both my memoir and my curriculum . . .

  1. I went to Sakeji School from the age of 6 to 11 and a half approximately. I must have been there at the same time as you started – perhaps for about a year? I bought two of your books on Amazon after being told by my mother about it (she was told by your online friend Carol Bakker – small world). I just finished my copy and loved it. Now my Mother cannot wait for her copy! I am sending it to her tomorrow from Ca to Cape Town. It was lovely seeing Sakeji through your eyes, and I had a good laugh at the memories it brought back and the good feelings it invoked. Lovely – you have done my heart good. Thanks Linda. Where are the pics of Sakeji on this website? I can’t find them! Are you on facebook? I want to share this with all my friends….. Jean (nee) Ross
