About Kay

I am married for 33 years. I have one daughter, three grandson's and one granddaughter. I live on the west coast with my mom and have been writing since 2010. My first book's publication has seen more publication dates than I have in the 33 years I've been married, but that's okay. I've learned a lot in the process. My second and third book will hopefully see publication by next years end. My first book is re-named as The Multiple Chronicles of 467 + One Book One-I've Had Enough, and is available now. My second book, They Have Risen is in the hands of a Literary Agent and I am hopeful she will like the book and take on this huge project. The Third book is being edited as I speak and will hopefully be out by early spring of 2019. I have moved and am no longer married as my husband passed away March 25th of this year and therefore have not written in a while but I plan to return to writing again soon.

Our Darling Princess

We had to put our baby to sleep today as she was suffering from a continuous siegure. She saved my husband’s life twice but we couldn’t save her. Our hearts are broken and we will miss her terribly. She served us well and I hope she is rewarded for her service, love, patience and understanding. Her four legged friends are grieving with us and we hope she  knows no matter where she is, she is in our hearts and memories forever.

Rest in Peace our Precious Princess Amber Lynn Punkinbutt Balderston

 

 

Season’s End

Wow! It’s hard to believe another Spring and Summer is gone. I still have so much work to do and not enough time to do it in. The rain sort of ruined my plans for yesterday and it looks like Mother Nature has a different plan for me today. All I can say is…”Oh Dear”

I hope life is good for all of you out there, and to my readers and followers, I will have a Novella ready by the end of this year and it will be free to anyone who is following my series.

Have a good day and rest of the week and I will be back later.

Trouble with Publishers

Wow! If a publisher makes promises, and your gut is telling you to run as fast as you can, listen to your gut. For the past five years I have had five publishers tell me they will give me the best of both worlds. Slef Publishing and Traditional Publishing and for the past five pubs, it’s all been lies. Unless you get an offer from a Traditional Publisher, I’m telling you now, you are better off to self publish with Amazon.com, Createspace, or on your own webpage and get paid through PayPal.

I have been my biggest fool, but no more. I am sucked into a contract right now and once it’s done, I will use contacts from my editor, or I will self publish through Amazon. I’m done using these fly by night publishing houses that promise the world, then take my husbands hard earned money, and treat me like crap! If you want to know which publishers NOT to use, send me a private message at wordpress.com/kmgbaughman, and I will be more than happy to give you a list.

My second book is ready and is going to a different publisher called Amazon.com soon, but for now, look for book one (The Multiple Chronicles of 467 + One: I’ve Had Enough! Book One) at Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, or Green Ivy Publishing. When you get the book, do me a favor and rate it for me Please.

Book Three is almost done and will hopefully be out by the end of the year.

Goodnight America. May tomorrow be as peaceful as today.

Extremely Frustrated

9780983824121_15-99_ean[1]-BC for TRoCHave you ever had one of those days where you want to blurb at the world. Today is one of those days for me. I signed up with a publisher on January 27, 2015. Once they got my money, I became difficult to work with. Then It’s five months and three project managers later when I get an email with an edited manuscript attached from their editor. By the second chapter I knew they edited the wrong manuscript and when I rejected it because this particular manuscript was supposed to be a sample, they wanted to charge me an additional $427.00 for them to edit the correct manuscript. Really? The publisher launched the book, the correct manuscript, on the 24th of June, but failed to have a press release ready at the time of the launch. Now here we are almost two months later and they have blocked me from further communication because I asked to get out of the contract for irreconcilable differences.

If you go to Amazon.com and look up ‘The Multiple Chronicles of 467 + One’, you will see what they consider to be a professional Publication page, and you will see they have two covers in the book.

Anyone who is in the business of writing would probably be just as frustrated as I am. I would love to hear back from others that have issues with their publishers. Maybe it’s just me.
