I have to sell 50 of my books. The thing is, my father-in-law has this wonderful $2000 iMac that he got about a year ago that he doesn't want. He doesn't like dealing with an unfamiliar operating system and he mainly wants it to do spread sheets, which apparently is not as easy to do on a Mac. So he told us that if we bought him a $500 IBM, he'd give us his Mac!😮 And all I need to sell to earn that much money is 50 of my books.

That doesn't seem like a lot of books, but so far I've only been able to make sales through RL contacts. I just annoy people with my spam on social networking sites. .. But my brother-in-law had a great idea. He said that at his kids's daycare sometimes authors of children's books will offer to read their book to the kids if they can be allowed to set up a table with their books to sell. I'm not sure if any day area around here would let me do that, but it's worth a shot. Scares me to death to think of doing this though. I'm so shy and awkward that I'm afraid I'll come off as some weirdo. But I guess I've got to face my fears sometime.

And I really need this computer because the Mac book that I have is six years old now and the art programs that I use make it freeze and crash. Trying to think of some more ideas for how to sell these books... But at least they are a heck of a lot easier to sell than my paintings! Haha And only 50. That's all. Maybe this won't be too hard.
