The trilogy Draoithe: Smoke of the Fire got a facelift and a complete volume has been posted to Amazon as well. If you have not met Fuego and Anaiz, check out their flaming romance now for only $1.97 for the whole story! As always, all of my stories are FREE with Kindle Unlimited! I have also always made all of my work shareable on Amazon. Please feel free to share my work with others who might be interested. The dream is only enhanced each time someone new steps into it.

Memes and Merch. These ideas are still works in progress. I have not given up on any of it. It just takes a lot of time to get things set up and to work out the bugs. I had to put the merchandise on hold because the Printful integration with Weebly was nowhere near as smooth as I thought it would be. It worked well right up until I actually attempted to create an item for sale. Then it would never create a storefront even after I set up all the banking side of things. That turned out to be very frustrating. Weebly is so plug and play user friendly, but there is a huge disconnect between Weebly and the Printful app. It makes me sad that none of the tutorials available seemed to be up to date or able to resolve the issue.
That dampened my enthusiasm for the quotes, one liners, and memes. Admit it though, lines like this from books are just awesome!
Maybe I will discover another way that works. I just need it to be simple. I don't write computer code, nor do I understand 99% of the jargon, so I need applications that are actually simple, not just claim to be. LOL.
Audiobooks in some form! The remodeling of a walkin closet into a recording studio has begun. Y'all cross your fingers. Now that I have got the books reduced to manageable parts, I think this could actually happen. I am going to try to read the short reads one page at a time and then string the recordings together as a giant edit, one scene at a time. I think my Corel program will work for it. It might not be high enough quality at first, but I will still try to post to YouTube if for no other reason than the amusement!
I must be off. If you write, consider short reads! If you read, please be kind and leave your reviews.
Welcome to Ophelia Kee Speaks. This is a blog chronicling my independent author walk. The journey into the dream has been a life-changing experience as I try to become a full-time writer and leave the professional world behind me. In my blog each day, you will find information on the ‘behind the scenes’ for writing contemporary adult fantasy fiction and paranormal romance stories set in the dream. I will speak on topics detailing with my writing, publishing, promotion, and marketing as well as social media dealing with my books, book trailers, book launches, book art, music, audio, and video, as well as shameless self-promotion. I am not an expert and am not claiming to be one. I am simply one writer offering a glimpse of my struggle to become a successful independent author. Thank you for considering my words.
