Another Book Update (Sorry for any Inconvenience)

Dear readers,

For those of you who either purchased my book on Kindle or are reading it on Kindle Unlimited or through KOLL, please go to “Manage Your Content and Devices” on Amazon and under Devices scroll down to “Your Book Updates” and check and see if “automatic updates” is turned ON. If not, please turn it on to receive an update I did around 5-5:30AM this morning that I believe has been posted to Amazon. That way you will have the latest version of my book.

For anyone wanting my paperback version, you will need to wait until my review on create space has been finalized and then proofed by me and approved to upload onto the 2-3 site addresses I gave yesterday for createspace and Amazon.

Sorry for any inconvenience! To err is human, to forgive is Divine. So please forgive me, as I am a first-time author and have limited funds so I had no one to help me with the editing of my book. But I made sure I looked more closely this time and I definitely got the 2 remaining spelling errors, and a possible place of confusion (since it was for me when I read it this morning) corrected too. If you have any questions about this, please let me know! Thank you for being patient and understanding! God bless!

Ask and You Shall Receive! (Update)

Jesus promises us in Matthew 7:7-8 Ask, and you shall receive.” I am paraphrasing, but is essentially what He is promising us.

People have been asking me (especially those I tell about my book in person/via word of mouth) if my book is available in paperback, and looked disappointed when I said no. Well last night (Friday night) I worked long and hard to get a paperback version going via createspace. I woke up this afternoon (Saturday) to an email from them telling me I had been approved and just needed to proof everything to make sure I am happy with the way they put my book together. I proofread it thoroughly and was satisfied so I approved it. Now it’s for sale on the createspace website here:

https://www.createspace.com/7483987

Or available via Amazon here:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/197561158

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1975611586/

For Canada and the rest of the European countries on Amazon (like France and Italy), it is not yet available but I will keep anyone interested posted.

Thank you again, my faithful readers, for getting me to where I am today (published first via Kindle Direct Publish in eBook, and now in paperback via createspace.com). It was God first and foremost who helped, but it was also you, my faithful readers who have read what I have been posting about (usually advice with Scripture backup) since I first started writing on here 4 summers ago!  God bless to all of you, whether you’ve been with me from the beginning, a year, a week, or a day!

I was so excited I purchased 4 copies! Problem is, I could barely afford those 4 and so I have no idea who I will end up sending them to in my family or circle of friends! But oh well, surely God will let me know who each book will go to and will let me know in His time. I am sure they will be people that want to read it, and possibly need to. That is all I can ask… that my book continues to reach people who want/need to know the Truth about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and Scripture and/or who need hope and anchor for their faith for difficult times. I want what God wants: for everyone to be saved! (2 Peter 3:9) And God promises in Isaiah 55:11 that His word bears fruit wherever He sends it. God’s Holy Spirit helped me write the book, so God was speaking through me in my writing. Since that is the case, surely God will send His own Word out where it needs to go, and it will bear fruit (the right people will find my book and read it with their Bible, or access to Scripture online or via a Bible app). I have the link to bible.com in my book, so for the eBook version, readers can just click on it. For the paperback, they can just enter the web site address into their browser to read Scripture as they read my book. Or for those who have Bibles, hopefully they read them both (my book + Holy Bible) together!

Preview My Book!

Hello my loyal readers,

I just discovered a way you can get a free preview of my book more easily! Click the link below:

Just click “Free Preview”, and it will take you to the 1st chapter of my book!

Do not forget to have your Bible or http://www.bible.com (or the Bible app which is the same as bible.com but the app version for phones) while reading my book once you have purchased it! I hope you will read it and that God will bless you and open your eyes, heart, and mind as you do read my book with your Bible or Bible app/website, and that you get what you need out of it. God bless!

I am thankful to God for helping me write these blogs that (the best ones) turned into the book it is now, for helping me publishing it, and for you, my loyal readers who keep coming back when I post something new. I am also thankful for new readers I get when I post something new. In other words, I am thankful for all of you.

P.S. If anyone has any questions about my book, or about me (as it relates to my book), please let me know. I will do my best to answer the questions asked. Thank you.

Update to my Book

Dear readers,

Through the bad review of my first reviewer, I went back and looked at my book again and discovered some mistakes. I have corrected them and published them last night, and are now available. If you have my book, try to sync your Kindle or Kindle app and see if it uploads the updated version of my book.

If you have not yet gotten it, you can get it now here: https://www.amazon.com/Live-Godly-Life-Alexis-Wright-ebook/dp/B074196VMB/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1500530872&sr=8-1&keywords=Alexis+Kaye+Wright

This book is for people who want to know the Truth (about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Bible), and/or who need a boost in their faith and want to learn how the Bible tells us to handle situations and how to stay in faith through trials. Jesus loves you, unconditionally! God bless to all of you!

Update to my Author Web Site

Dear readers,

I made some edits and updates to my author web site. I renamed all 5 pages and added a photo on the About Me page. Check out all 5 pages and let me know what you think please. I am still looking for the right publishing company who believes in paying the author and then only taking  25%- 30% royalties and leaving 70%- 75% royalties (or more) to me and taking that small percentage as their payment after my book has not only been published, but sold enough copies to start seeing money in the form of royalties.

My goals are to reach as many people: thousands, or even millions of people with advice about faith in the LORD so I can encourage and inspire their relationship/to enter into a right relationship with Jesus; and also to be able to make a living from my writing since God placed the passion for writing, for Him/Jesus, and for reaching, inspiring, and encouraging others in me, so surely He has a good plan that includes me being a published author of multiple books over the rest of my lifetime, and more. I want to reach everyone who is not currently in a right relationship with God. I know that will not happen, but if I can reach even one more person (or realistically, hundreds or thousands of people enough to read the book, and pick up a Bible to read with my book), then God and all of Heaven will rejoice, and I will too.

Prayers, and any other form of help my readers are willing to give me would be greatly appreciated. And if you need help getting your book or other kinds of writings published, let me know and I will help any way I can.

Any helpful (constructive in a respectful way) feedback, especially if you have been published, would be helpful and appreciated, thank you! God bless you all!

Sincerely,

Alexis Kaye

Busy Girl (Update on me)

Hello my readers,

Sorry for not writing lately. It is not lack of inspiration, but lack of time. I have had a few different blog topics I wanted to write about, but I did not have the time and now I need to remember what the topics were and get them written out so I can publish them. It has been crazy for me since coming back from Australia in March (I know I’ve written on here since I returned). April was full of me writing and then I burned out and took about 3 weeks off. Then a few days ago (Monday I think) I started writing a new (fictional) romance story filled with intrigue that is nearly completed. I am hoping to receive copies of the magazine I earlier mentioned one of my short stories will be published in soon, later this month, since it is the July/August issue I am being published in. Nobody has, as of yet, expressed interest in knowing the name of the magazine but if anyone would like to know, do not hesitate to drop me a line.

I have not only been writing. I have been riding my new bike I got a month ago and I also joined a new gym called Fitness Evolution (which took over the Bally gym about a mile and a half from where I live) last Monday (12 days ago) and I have been working on being aggressive with becoming healthy which is not just about eating healthy and riding my bike, but also about giving my whole body a workout (not necessarily all at once, although that is sometimes the case). I am determined to become 100% healthy in every way.

Oh, and last Sunday (May 25th) was my Backstreet Boy’s concert!!!!!!!!!! I did not get to thank Kevin for the amazing thing he did for my mom 9+ years ago before she passed away. However, I did get some love from AJ when he road by on his bicycle (riding it around the parking lot of the venue) and the concert was amazing! Also, there was this sweet security lady after the concert who was about to go home, but wanted to make sure I had a safe ride back first since the person who had promised me a ride forgot and ended up not picking me up. She didn’t leave my side until I had a safe ride secured at a price I could afford. God is so amazing! I know it was God who had a hand in getting me the safe ride back to my sister’s from the venue. The Friday before that (the 16th of May) my adorable nephews turned 1 and Saturday the 17th was the party.

I am so excited and feel like I am finally beginning to move forward with my life with my short story about to be published in a magazine (1,000 readers is better than none) and with being blessed with my bicycle and gym membership to help me get healthy. Plus God has been helping me get fresh fruits and veggies at a Trader Joe’s nearby to me. I feel like my breakthroughs in health and in earning a living with my writing are coming to me and will be here sooner than I can imagine! 2014 is definitely my year! It can still be your year too. I am not being inactive and waiting for things to be done for me, I have gone from somewhat active to super active in the areas where I seek (positive) change.

Another change I am making in being “more pro-active” is that I am considering self-publishing a short murder mystery screenplay (or book I suppose) that I wrote in April before I burned out. I am having issues with creating my own cover for the eBook. I cannot find the right image for my cover or come up with the correct color for the “by Alexis Kaye Wright” under the cover (that is my pen name, Wright was my mother’s maiden name). To be honest, I am also having trouble finding the right background colors on Power Point for my own eBook cover. The only thing I’ve been able to do in regards to creating my own cover is find the font color for the title of my book/eBook. If anyone either knows how to draw people/is a book cover artist or knows of anyone who can help, and who is understanding of not being able to be paid because I have financial hardships currently, but who would be willing to wait and be paid a small amount from each eBook sold (a small percentage from my royalties), then please do not hesitate to send me a private message! Remember that when you help someone in need, God will reward you for it! If someone can help me (has the ability to) and is willing to do so, I will email you (in a reply to your email to me) a copy of my story so you can get an idea of the right cover for my book/eBook.

The self-publishing thing has only hit a minor snag and I am confident in the Lord that He will help me get my cover (and the right one) for my eBook (which may later be published in print, but still thinking about it) and will help me get it published by the right web site or company. I feel like it was God guiding me to consider self-publishing so if it was then we all know that God does not ask us to do something without equipping us to do it. I may not have what I need right now, but I will. This is a good lesson in faith that I could not pass up the opportunity to share with you (my readers).

To everyone reading this, I pray in the name of Jesus that to those of you needing miracles or a boost in faith, that 2014 be your year to see the changes you need in your life, in the name of Jesus. A good way to see the miracles you seek come to pass is to do daily Bible study and to understand what you are reading, and then to apply what you read to your life everyday. Then you show your faith in the actions you take. For example, you see that I am writing, writing, writing and not giving up until I am published, and I will be published in a magazine and sure I won’t get paid, but this is the beginning. I will make it as a writer, I can feel it and I am taking actions towards this belief by continuing to write and by researching ways to get my writing published. I am also being more active in working out and not merely walking lots or riding my bike, but adding workouts at the gym to the “exercise” part and I have also been eating more apples and pears (fruits) and make a point to have veggies daily too. So study (read and hear God’s word in audio) God’s word daily, and actively show your faith in the things you do. Also, speak positive words over your life (speak the changes you seek as if they are already taking place). It has been working for me so it can certainly work for you as well.

May God bless you all, in Jesus’ name!
