At the beginning of the week I was going to rant and rave about Amazon and complain bitterly about the Daily Book Deals they were sending through to me. They changed the one at the top, but all the others shown are exactly the same, day after day after day, for over two weeks now.
However, all is instantly forgiven and now I love Amazon. Why? Well this is not going to be a good picture, I think my hands were shaking too much!
Yes I know this is a bad pic, and the one that follows is even worse!I
In case you have gone totally squint eyed, the pictures show ‘Amie an African Adventure’ got to #1 on Amazon.co.uk in genre. Not for very long I must say modestly, as I noticed by the time I got DH to apply his photographic skills, it had dropped to #2 in one of the categories. The pic had one of those magic little yellow stickers next to it for a little while though. But, I am assured that I can now say I am a best selling author. Can’t say I feel like one and the sales are steady but nothing to set the world on fire yet, but watch this space!
Can I ask those people who have read ‘Amie’ to post a review for me on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk? Please, please, please! I have a bestselling book with only 9 reviews!! Of course if you would only give it one or two stars, then please don’t dash to power up your computer 🙂
The book you see on the picture below mine is ‘Into Africa: 3 Kids, 13 Crates and a Husband’
I despair when I read other blogs which are so beautifully set out and all the pictures are in the right place. I am struggling big time here and wish I had had some computer or office training at some stage in my life. The problem at my age is I find out how to perform an action, and then if I don’t repeat it frequently the new knowledge flies out of the window and I have to teach myself all over again. It’s exhausting!
I see WordPress has inserted a little red dustbin at the bottom of the page, is this a hint I am lowering their standards and they are inviting me to trash this before I go any further? I wouldn’t be surprised.
Not blogged much lately as I have been finalizing my third book ‘Truth, Lies and Propaganda.’ I am two thirds way through ‘More Truth, Lies and Propaganda’, but that will have to go on the back burner for a few weeks as I catch up on life.
We have agonized over the cover, but I think we can make it work. I can’t remember if I have posted a pic of the cover, [that’s how bad it is!] but if not I will save that for next time. It should be out by the middle of November.
Last bit of news. There is a promotion on for ‘Walking over Eggshells’ tomorrow with eBookStage a new readers’ site where they’ll send you ebookstage recommendations tailored to your taste. Look them up on http://www.ebookstage.com. I get emails from them about books I might like to read and they seem to choose some really good ones. Anyway, for one day only WoE will be $0.99 and £0.77 – that’s tomorrow Friday 31st October.
