A Regular Bud: A Story that Still Surprises Me


When I wrote A Regular Bud as a digital short e-book, I never expected it to do what it has been doing ever since it was released.

It’s been on more bestseller lists than I can name, because I don’t usually keep track of these things…nor do I have google alerts set up. It’s been on one web site’s bestseller list since it was released. And now it’s back on the publisher’s bestseller list at number one. When I wrote it, I thought I was writing a little short story that would sell a few copies and I could add it to my list of publishing credits.

It constantly surprises me, mainly because I’m not sure what I did to make it resonate with readers. I’ve had more e-mails from this book than from anything else I’ve written. I’m half tempted to write a sequel, but then I have a feeling the sequel wouldn’t go over as well at the original. I’ve been there before. Sequels don’t always resonate the same way the original did.

You can check it out here at the publisher’s web site. Or it can be found at almost all web sites where digital books are sold.
