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. [http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004GXAVYC] Now I'm wondering if anyone has a story similar to mine? I'd love to hear from you.

Welcome to KindleBoards and congratulations on your book!

(If you've gotten this welcome before, it's just as a matter of housekeeping. We like to put a copy of the "welcome letter" in each book thread. It doesn't mean you've done anything wrong, it just helps us know that you know the rules.)

A brief recap of our rules follows:

--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then.

--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post. For information on more ways to promote here on KindleBoards, be sure to check out this thread:
Authors: KindleBoards Tips & FAQ.

All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum. Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

Oh, and one more thing: be sure to check out the index threads at the top of the Book Bazaar. . . .there are details there about how you can be listed so that our readers can find you.

Thanks for being part of KindleBoards! Feel free to send us a PM if you have any questions.
