Celebrate – Buy a Book by a Female Author

Each of my novels takes months to write, usually taking several hours work daily. Research – double-checking every fact behind the fiction – or actually typing, formatting as I go. All of it requires editing, proofreading, a cover and a short description. When I hit “publish” on Amazon, I’ve usually set a launch price of 99 cents or the equivalent worldwide. So, what next? Fix a realistic price – $2.99, less than the price of a coffee because readers won’t pay more.


If my husband didn’t earn a high salary, I couldn’t afford to use my talent – not my words; the awards my books have won speak for me. So, as we celebrate smashed glass ceilings in many fields, remember those who provide a break from reality, the chance to live in a different world for a few hours, but earn a pittance. Far too little to make a real difference to the charities to which I donate 100% of my royalties.


Available on Kindle Unlimited

One Alone in the World  (Richard & Maria Book 3) will be published around Easter.

Sarah Stuart is an award-winning author whose books are based on her show business experience, her concern for animals, the challenges of her Christian faith, and her passions for history and travel. Sarah's hope is that readers will enjoy her novels as an escape from reality, but be left understanding that fame and fortune often comes at a high personal cost. Also, an increased perception of the threat to animals: those shot in the name of sport for trophy heads, endangered species, many poached for their fur and ivory, and tragically discarded pets.
