I hit #58 best seller for Amazon

Saturday, May 15th, 2010

Well that’s for the category – children’s animal fiction, but it’s cool enough to add to my clips here.

I’m nervous about SteamPotVille. I know it’s a great book, but I am a first time author and everything that is happening is new to me. I have no way of knowing how well book sales are progressing or if Amazon ranking means anything. For now surprises like this make me feel successful and that’s good because it was a lazy Saturday.

Thanks Cherry for showing me #58 and making my evening.

Dear Hans Christian Andersen, in your honor.

Friday, April 2nd, 2010

Dear Hans Christian Andersen,
Happy Birthday to you at 205 years old. You might be dead, but Ars Longa Vita Brevis!!! Yah hoo!  Google is honoring you today with a mini story from “Thumbelina”. If you missed it, and you have an ipad in your grave, (and your iPad has 3G) here are the images:

Yours Truly,
Steve Ouch

PS. I loved The Ugly Duckling.

Call it the day Friday cried from the pain of sorting contacts. I’ve had to do the tedious labor of arranging my mailing lists, organizing contacts and going through business cards to prepare for the continued promotion of SteamPotVille and Blaire Sees Bears. I would imagine if you like me enough to read my blog, you’ll probably be getting an email from me soon.

It’s Official! My neighbor makes me feel awkward.

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

There are a few things in life that make things official. 
1. When your dating and you get a movie account together at Hollywood Video. (Officially seriously dating)

2. When your 50 year old bald neighbor opens the door with a short robe and a garder belt. (Officially awkward!)

3.  When you get a webpage on a publishers website. (officially google indexed as an author)

I’m happy to say I’ve done all three!  Here’s the link to the picture of one of them. Is it door 1 – 2 – or 3. Guess you’ll have to click and see. What’s it gunna be!
