The majority of the books on the site are books my publishing company has published, however, there are a couple on there that are not as well as a handful in the wings that need to be added.  I "work" the books on the main pages and, therefore, take a percentages of the sales from the TreasureLine Books store only.  I also have the Other Books page that simply lists the books and links.  That page is growing as time permits and I do tell people about it but I don't necessarily promote those books.

Aha. . . You just list the books you publish yourself then?  Yes, I know picture books are more expensive to publish - I have 10 of them out: as eBooks and in soft cover.

Hi Margot.  We do actually have a couple of children's books on the shelves (one written by me) with several waiting in the wings: http://treasurelinebooks.com/Childrens.aspx  Our only reason for not rolling out more is because, as you may know, the cost of illustrations and color printing trounce black and white.  We're growing - daily, in fact - but we are still small.  Know any good authors who would want to talk about placing their books on our shelves?  :-)

You have some interesting titles, Linda.  However no books for children.  Is this by choice or just the way things happened?

I am following you.

Thank you Margot.  Writing helped so much, and it's because of a group like this that I started writing more and feeling comfortable in my writing.  The healing has already started.
Comment by Margot Finke on March 1, 2011 at 3:00pm

A.K.,  what a heartbreaking memory you carry around.  I hope writing about it like this helps ease your hurt. You will never forget these events, but writing them down or talking about them to some neutral person often help ease the pain.  Doing these two things will encourage the many good and wonderful memories of your family and your Dad to float to the surface - at least most of the time.

I wish you much gentle healing.
