I've mentioned struggles in the past with being an indie author. I've even talked a little bit about my experiences with advertising specifically on Amazon. I'm now discovering another lovely and not often mentioned little beauty (oh, so NOT) that is the beast of Amazon. Ranking and search results. Or, to be more accurate, the… Continue reading Amazon Suckage As An Author

I started the Kindle ebook give away for An Unexpected Turn on the anniversary of the day I clicked publish.

A Little Squee Moment
I saw this last night and just about had my mind blown. Until I offered up my book, An Unexpected Turn, for free on Kindle, I hadn't had any sales or reads through any marketplace outside of the US.

Tiny Bit of Self Promotion: An Unexpected Turn
I haven't mentioned anything about my book in a while and thought I'd put this out there just in case any of you hadn't seen it yet.

Need A Second…
I'm having a moment. A moment when I've discovered that a reader not only enjoyed my book, but, based on what they've said about it, got it exactly as I'd hoped a reader would. Every single piece. That review pretty much makes all the hard work and stress and self doubt worth it. And yes,… Continue reading Need A Second…

Had A Moment
Hubby and I were talking about the current sales numbers and results of my Amazon ad. I'm being all excited about those number and how it was impacting my rankings and all of those things.

If you… Continue reading Free Book Anyone?

Just A Little Nudge And A Question
I'm dropping this little nudge for anyone that hasn't seen it yet or is new around here. I did this thing called "writing a book" a while back. I'm kinda proud of it. At the same time, I'm trying to get really creative in ways to promote it besides spamming people here, on twitter and… Continue reading Just A Little Nudge And A Question
An Unexpected Turn: Book Review & Give Away
When I offered my book in exchange for reviews, one of the takers was Jess at Sorting Life's Issues With Jess. She chose a paperback copy with the goal to then pass that book along when she was done with it, starting a train of passing the book along to others. I loved this idea… Continue reading An Unexpected Turn: Book Review & Give Away
