99% That we Worry About Never Happens. Give the Rest to God

I just a check in the mail for selling four more books. I am very pleased at the rate the books are selling. My book, “Signs of Hope: Ways to Survive in an Unfriendly World,” has sold 204 books in just over four months. That is an average of about 50 a month. I certainly would like more sold, but I am thankful to God for the consistency.

My next goal is to sell 500. That officially gives you the right to say your book is a best seller. (Don’t ask me how that could be. It is in all the marketing books.)

You can certainly help with that by clicking on the tab at the top that says “bookstore,” and ordering a book yourself. I have just been lowered the price from $19.99 to $15.99, AND the shipping price has been cut in half to $2.35. That is a total of $6.00 savings if you order now.

Think about Easter coming up next month. This would be a wonderful gift to give out as an Easter present. It is full of uplifting thoughts, and talks about our risen Savior.

There is only one way this book will be a success, and that is through people like you buying the books, and then telling others. Word of mouth is always the best marketing tool.


I want to tell you about another book I am starting, but this is called a “teaser.” My next post will give you more details. Just one more teaser… it will be about sports.


Think on this:

  • 99% of what we worry about never happens. The other 1% you can turn over to God.
  • When two or more gather together to pray, God will be there with you.
  • When you smile at someone they usually smile back. This gives them more face value.
  • When you make it through a storm in your life, you are that much stronger for the next one.


I am asking for prayer for my good friend Michael Clark, who is my partner on our blog: www.dailysignsofhopecom. He has a very serious surgery coming up, and please pray that God will hold his hand throughout this ordeal and make him whole again.



Surfing Sized Waves on Oregon Coast

I went to the Oregon Coast today. What a beautiful day! Not a cloud in the sky and the waves were like the size of surfing waves; big and majestic.

I was able to stop by one of the bookstores called Canyon Way Bookstore in Newport, Oregon where I have my book, “Signs of Hope: Ways to Survive in an Unfriendly World.” I was pleased to find out that they had sold a book, and gave me a payment for it. Always a pleasant surprise when that happens.

I also found out that I had sold four books at Eola Hills Winery, in Rickeall, Oregon this week. I will drop by there to give them a new supply.

The book is selling on a steady pace. However, I expect it to really start selling right here on this sight, since I announced a couple days ago, that I lowered the price from $19.99 to $15.99, and cut the shipping cost in half as well.

The really good news is that everyone that orders from this site will get an autographed copy of the book.

All you have to do is go up to the tab that says, “Bookstore,” and click on it. That will take you right to the page that has a full description of the book, and how to order.

Take advantage of this special offer. The book is still $19.99 in the store outlets through-out the Northwest. PLUS you get an autographed copy if you order here.  

Big Announcement about a New Book

I said a while back that I would have a big announcement about my book, “Signs of Hope: Ways to Survive in an Unfriendly World.”

Well… here it is:

The price has been slashed from $19.99 to $15.99 on this site. You can order one by clicking on the bookstore tab.

Wait… there’s more! ( Sounds like an infomercial!)

The shipping has also been cut in half!

Wait there’s more!!

Each book you order will be personally autographed by me and will have a personal note.

So… you get:

  •  A book that has had many wonderful endorsements coming in that say it reaches out to those who suffer from anxiety, fear, depression, addictions, hopelessness, low self-esteem, self-doubt, and the many other usual suspects.
  • A book that will be personally autographed.
  • A price of the book that has been lowered from $19.99 to $15.99.
  • Shipping that has been cut in half.

Please check the book out by clicking on the “Bookstore,” tab. there is a Bio, and description there.
