I thought I would do a revisit to this blog about my 'book' that is on Amazon in case anyone is looking for a Mother's Day gift in the form of a short story. It's a quick couple hour's read for busy moms and just maybe she'll enjoy it!

I wrote Mildred’s Ethylene Machine about 25 or 30 years ago but never thought I would be publishing it on Amazon Kindle…yet I did. It’s been on there awhile and I’ve sold quite a few copies and garnered even more readers through my free promotional periods so it is getting exposure.
Last year, after about 6 months when sales were pretty slow, I unpublished the ‘book’ for awhile, (I say book but it is actually a relatively short story), but then I noticed some authors keep their books on there for years, and eventually the reviews pick up. So I’ve decided I can wait a few years for a few more reviews especially if they are like the ones I’ve received so far which are eight 5-stars and two 4-stars. How about them apples! Here’s a link to Amazon if you’d like to read a few pages of the book and thanks if you do! Mildred's Ethylene Machine
All in all it’s been great to be called a creative writer with an interesting story which most of the comments have said. None have been too critical which is a bonus but I don’t mind critical. Even if someone says my story was a little wordy in spots, I’m still going to be a little wordy in spots in anything I write. It’s just the way I write because I don’t know of any other way. I did not take any courses in writing so whatever I come up with is done on a wing and a prayer! I’m not looking for fame, I just like to write.
