Congrats! I love the title! Can't wait to be where you are in a few weeks (hopefully). I just can't stop editing. I plan to commission my cover art tomorrow.

Good luck.....I hope you are raving about mega sales by next week!

Thanks SO much for the support.
The upload took less than 24 hours and I'm live on Amazon! 
Now it's time for the sales to start coming in and soon I'll be a millionaire.
ha ha...don't worry I'm not that delusional.

Just excited.  ;)

Thanks again to everyone for the well wishes!
It's been a week since the book went up (on Smashwords) a little less for Kindle and sales are ...okay.
I guess I knew they wouldn't explode, but one can hope right? :)
Steady is the game though, so I'm happy with my 31 sales in a week.
Hopefully the next book will be ready by Christmas.

I'm learning so much here. Thanks everyone.

Congratulations! It's an exciting time, and I wish you all the best :)

I've had books appear on Amazon as soon as a few hours after I uploaded them to as long as the full 24 hours. I guess it just depends on how busy they are.

Hey Elena, you are a few days ahead of me so I have some questions.

I put my first novel on line three days ago and so far am at 3 sales. This is fine by me as I have told absolutely no one other than my girlfriend, and the kindleboards (I know my gf hasn't bought it as she has a copy so I'm assuming three kindleboarders did - so if you're reading this thank you very very much)

What have you done to promote your novel? Who have you told? How do you think you generated 31 sales in 7 days? Have you had your book reviewed on sites? Or has it all been luck?

Thanks for any insight you may provide.

And congrats again,

Les.
