Hi, Wanda.
Thank you so much for reaching out to me. Since the BookBub promotion, I've received many emails and questions from readers, all of which makes me deliriously happy.
The third book, Melanie's story, has been way harder to write because, let's be honest, she can be difficult. But it's not anger that's been a roadblock for her, and thus me. It's grief. Sadness. Remorse.
But, thanks to readers like YOU, Melanie and I taking one step at a time and moving forward. I think, I hope, the book will publish the last part of May.
Thank you again so much for contacting me. It feels like Celebration House and the characters who live there have found their tribe. And that feels absolutely amazing!
Best wishes,
Annette(less)

I'll have to add that to my bucket list.(less)

Two weeks later, results.

Hey, guys.


Two weeks ago, I promoted my book, Building Celebration House, for free with a Bookbub promotion. I thought I’d share results.


To date, I’ve given away 20,475 copies. Not bad. I’ve sold about 910 books. The second book, Stay at Celebration House, has sold almost 500 copies. The third book, Return to Celebration House, has sold just shy of 400 copies. I’m not shopping for a beach house...
