My first book was published!
This has always been a dream of mine. When I lost my Premium Membership here in April 2019, I decided to stop entering contests. And focus on my writing.

My short stories have been sold to over 50 publications. I have won several awards. I have a website www.trishamckee.com

And now. I published a book. The funny thing about all of this is I've signed up to do a virtual book tour that includes giving away an Amazon gift card! I'm now on the other end of things!

Please, friends, check out my book. I miss you all. Every now and then, I miss getting packages in the mail every day.


Not all that wander are lost.

That's a great accomplishment and you should be very proud! I hope you have a lot of success with your book.

There are still some good sweeps out there, even if you aren't a premium member. You may not have time now, with your book tour, but you should consider taking up sweeping again when you do have time. FedEx just brought me a win today, which made me very happy.

Our task must be to free ourselves...by widening our circle of compassion
to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.

Congratulations!!! We also have Bulldogs, and our son is also a writer (amongst many other things!) I wish you much more success!
