Connie's Publishing Journey  - 
 
Little things can reap great results. For the Easter season, I offered 10% off and free shipping on signed paperbacks directly from me. Only one person took me up on the offer. I thought maybe it was a waste. But the customer read my choleric book and recommended it to blogger +Haley Stewart . Haley read it and loved it, then blogged about it and interviewed me for a podcast. This all happened in the matter of a few weeks. Since Haley's blog post, I have made over $200 profit on my choleric book, which has not been a strong seller over all. And I hope some of the new readers will write reviews or recommend the book to others. All as a result of a 10% discount.

When my oldest kid was a newborn, he was extremely colicky. He cried for most of his first year and even when he wasn’t crying, he was still very high needs. His intensity startled me. Daniel and I...

Story
Tagline
Carmelite spirituality, contemplative kids.
Introduction
I am a Catholic wife and mother of four boys, dedicated to prayer and to teaching my children to pray. I am the author of Trusting God with St. Therese, A Spiritual Growth Plan for Your Choleric Child, and Is Centering Prayer Catholic? I developed my own homeschooling method to foster a contemplative lifestyle. I blog on that and Carmelite spirituality for adults at Contemplative Homeschool. I also own the Google+ Community Indie Catholic Authors.

I wrote the e-book Five Lessons from the Carmelite Saints That Will Change Your Life. You can download it free for your Kindle or Nook.
