On to the Co-Post!

Seumas Gallacher and I decided to try a little co-blogging. Turns out it's almost as much fun as some other co-activities we all enjoy! You can find this same post on Seumas's blog too! While you're there, give yourself a treat and read some more of his posts. He's unique and a treat to read!

Take it away, Seumas!

… literary promiscuity works... the well-baited fishing line thrown out in yesterday’s post by Master Gallacher has snared its first success… here’s yer maiden offering of a JOINT BLOG... from a fair maiden in her own right… my friend AUTHOR CAROLE REMY... she of the prolific noveling ilk… about to dip her prosaic toe into the enticing waters of the Kindle Select Program Free Promo… allows her post to be wrapped by commentary from this old spider lurking in his own tentacles of the WEB… Ms REMY encapsulates so well the angst, the trepidation, the JITTERS… oh bluudy hell, the absolutely mind-freezing scariness of letting yer wee baby into the clutches of the, strike that, I meant the KDP… being of a more capricious bent than my ally, Ms REMY, when I first linked up with KDP, I harboured no doubts as I entered yet another one-night stand with the femme fatale of the indie publishing world… or was that a five-day stand?… and I must ‘fess up … I have not LUVVED ‘EM and LEFT ‘EM… I’ve LUVVED ‘EM and LINGERED. KDP has been gentle with me… let’s find out what Ms REMY thinks of it all… here she is:

She Said...

My first marriage was to Royalty. The wedding was lovely, posh and all. I even received a small dowry. At the time, I was young and naive, and didn’t know enough to have wedding night jitters. Besides, there was no performance evaluation for six months! What more could a first time bride want.

The marriage went the way so many marriages do these days. The first six month’s Royalty Statement was stellar! Our baby was a grand success! We immediately had another, also a winning performer! And then Royalty’s interest began to wain. He didn’t show up for our child’s starring role in the school play, missed soccer matches, you know the story. Royalty just wasn’t interested in promoting our children. We eventually divorced when I declined to have a third child with a disinterested parent, and that was that.

Now, I find myself on the eve of another wedding night, this time to Kindle Direct Publishing Free Days, filled with the jitters my first wedding never provoked. Of course, I have the reassurance that this marriage is forever. KDP can’t divorce me and my darling offspring Twelve Nights without also canceling all it’s other two million partners. Publishing is a polygamous, but equal, enterprise these days. And I know that this wedding night is but the first of many occasions for free-spirited bliss.

The Law of Attraction tells me to feel successful and abundant, and really, I do! I love my life, and book sales are the icing on an already delicious cake. Mmmm, wedding cake. Did I remember to call the caterers? I put in twelve orders for company Tweets, and invited all my friends to celebratweet with me. The Facebook invitations are in the mail. The wedding is even being filmed by my other new partner, T. N. Mohan, the producer who just optioned my Twelve Nights baby for her own movie!

And yet, I have the jitters. The problem is that tomorrow morning when I wake up, my new partner is going to give me a by-the-numbers evaluation of my performance. I don’t know if I can stand it! 

Seumas, I need a hug!

  2. Congrats, MC! This is great! I downloaded a copy for when I get to sink my teeth into it!


    1. Thanks A!

      I wasn't sure how the free days thing would work out, but Twelve Nights has already jumped from unranked to #36 overall in Erotic! And we're only halfway through the first day! Woohoo!

      I hope you have as much fun reading Twelve Nights as i did writing it. The first chapter is nastier, but I needed it that way to make Angela really want to get out of prostitution! The rest of the book is mainly laughs!



    2. MC!!! You tock! Thank you for the scoop! You go girl. I am counting this as the abundance coming my way, which includes knowing you! I can't express in words exactly how thrilled I am at the moment. Grateful, hopeful, ecstatic, privileged to know you! There's more, I just can't convey it but you are so awesome and always help in making my day.
      In deep appreciation,

    1. Love it! You're making me laugh, A. I tock, I rock, it's all good! I am very glad you have appeared in my life, my dear! The Law of Attraction at its finest! Hug, Carole

    2. Thanks so much, MC. I am deeply moved. Yo ur words touch me to the core! Do you think life is a soul's journey and if we follow the soul, we can't go wrong?

      I am asking because so much is based on the ego and society. Based on your life, I would have to say you would go with the first choice. Do you think this is the reason there is so much unhappiness and loss of power in the world? That is, most people live by the second action. Some are good, as they live well this way and do not question the folk ways and mores. Others, however, suffer a lot and some, from their feeling of powerlessness, bully others into submission. I know both types of people, but must admit you are the best case! So, I would rather go with you and I am bound to find some other like minded people! Peace

    3. Hi A!

      Thanks for another profound thought and comment. I think a large part of the journey is choosing who you wish to travel with. There can be others on the sidelines as friendly acquaintances, but those on the path with you, holding hands, are the ones whose high vibration calls to and matches yours.

      The spectators don't matter to YOUR journey. They are on a path that may intersect but doesn't quite coincide with yours.

      Thanks for grounding me. I love our conversations!


    4. Thank you so much, MC, for shedding light into this. I tend to drive myself crazy over it so thank YOU for gounding me and making my life more sane, fun and less scary. I am so blessed and I love our conversations, too!

  4. I downloaded a copy! Thanks, Carole!

    1. Hi Amy,

      Thank you for downloading Twelve Nights! I hope you enjoy it. Jimmy is a good Taoist, though he doesn't label himself that way. And thank you again for the copy of Blessed Unrest! I can't wait to read it.
