Mid-weekly update

Sales are still low, and no reviews from readers yet either, but the new book is coming along pretty well. But it will be a while before that is finished!

Since I have nothing new, I can just point to these videos by Caroline at Youtube: when she gets her braces off (after 2 years and 4 months!) and when she talks about her retainers. Nice!

Weekly update

It is gratifying to see that there's some interest in the books, as quite a few went flying off the shelves in the past week. A copy of The Braced Experience was even bought at Amazon (all the other copies of it so far have been bought through Lulu) - but no one has bought Love and Braces at Amazon yet (just Lulu - and the German Amazon!). So I really hope word of mouth starts spreading now (and maybe readers will leave reviews at Amazon and Lulu - good ones, I hope).

I still think Retainer Girl is the best "starter" book to see what the Dr.Wrighting books are like, and it probably also has the broadest appeal. But I guess I really think all of them are worth reading. Love and Braces is a much longer story which I guess gives more of an idea of the whole experience of having braces - and I think it's a pretty good love story to. The Braced Experience has more (10!) different stories of what it's like having braces, so maybe readers who are interested in a variety of experiences will find that one the most interesting. But I hope everybody likes them all!

The next book is coming along well too, though I still have some reservations about it. But I think it will work well as a whole. It's going to be long, too - maybe the longest one so far. But I also have all these other stories left over from The Braced Experience, so I think the book after that will collect those. The Braced Experience II, maybe.
