  2. I thought I would be good to start a new thread, the old one was close to 50 pages deep. I hope it is a good omen that my first sale of 2018 was a book sale for $250! I want to be hopeful that these will be more commonplace in 2018 for all!

  6. Has the last day of the month 'surge' been and gone ?

    No surge here but December was the best month of this year. 25 more sales than 2017 and a nice boost from last year’s gross income....but still a long way off from my best income year in 2011.

    Only a tad warmer than here. Going to Italy and Corfu....mostly to see my father’s Italian family but taking pics along the way for sure! Got a cheap ticket for flying on New Years Eve. It seems that no one wants to fly then.
