In 1990, I self-published my first book Healing Your Life: Recovery from Domestic Abuse and sold in primarily by direct marketing. My daughters helped me by typing the mailing lists, pasting on labels, and helping fill orders. In 1994, I did a second printing, and the book continued to sell well. In fact I've sold it in all fifty states, and internationally. Last year, right after Christmas, I decided to give Amazon's Kindle platform a try, practicing so to speak, for books I want to publish that my agent couldn't sell (although publishers loved my writing). Imagine my surprise when Healing Your Life began to sell as a Kindle book. I never dreamed my little book that I wrote because there was nothing out there when I needed such a book would live this long. Life is full of surprises! To sweeten the deal for my readers, I bundled the Kindle version with another book that I wrote on the same topic.
