Liquidation Sale (Save up to 50% off!)

 Good afternoon,

I usually try to put a positive spin on my posts, but the truth is that the past year and a half have been incredibly difficult. In addition to my writing and running my home-based crafting business, I usually have a part time job. Book and crafts sales can vary a lot from month to month, so it’s good to have a steady source of income. Unfortunately, I lost two jobs last year due to the pandemic.

Once again, I tried to remain optimistic. I used my additional free time to catch up on projects around my house, make new craft inventory, and work on editing the manuscripts of two novels.

Editing in progress…

Understandably, with everything that has been going on over the past year and a half, people have mostly been spending their money on essentials. And for most people this doesn’t include books or handmade crafts. As a result, my sales have nose dived.

With all of this in mind, I’ve decided to have a liquidation sale in my Etsy shop, Reprieve’s Corner. From now through August 1st, 2021, all of my crafts and craft supplies are 50% off and autographed copies of my books are 10% off. Free shipping on orders of $35 or more (US only).

Here’s hoping that from now on things start looking up!

As always, thank you for reading and for supporting my creative efforts. I really appreciate it!
