When I chose to wear on the day of the launch of my book the same corset I wore in my wedding day, I thought it would be the only similarity between two very special moments of my life. But no. As I discovered, there is a lot more in common between a wedding and a book launch. Consider this:

1) The bride is uncapable of drinking or eating anything. So is the author.
2) The bride can't pay attention to everyone who had the patience to attend the event. So can't the author.
3) The bride kisses someone every time she turns anywhere. So does the author.
4) The bride is very nervous, and when it's time to speak she chokes up with emotion. So does the author.
5) That day, the bride receives infinite love from the most important people in your life. So does the author.
6) For the bride, two hours seem ten minutes. Same for the author.
7) At the end of the night, the bride is worn out but can't fall asleep due to the excitement. So does the author.
8) In the next day, while remembering the moments and people that were at her side, the bride gets emotional. So does the author.

Thanks to all who shared this important day with me. And thanks to all who could not attend but sent their good vibes.

If you'd like to check the corset just click the link below (pics from the book launch:)). Sorry for any typo, but my portuguese blog posts are still in my translators cue so I translated this one on my own... :p

Welcome to KindleBoards, Filipa, and congratulations on your book! :)

It's always good to add new members and new authors. Since you're new here it's possible you've not yet had time to review our Forum Decorum. Among other things it states that self-promotion, of any sort, by authors or their agents is ONLY allowed here in the Book Bazaar. Because of this, I've moved your post about your book and created it as its own topic in the Book Bazaar per our forum guidelines for authors.

A brief recap of our rules follows: (Note that this doesn't mean you've done anything wrong; we just want you to have a ready reference. :) )

--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).

--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

--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. . . follow the directions there to be listed. :)

Thanks for being part of KindleBoards! Feel free to send a PM to Ann, Betsy and me if you have any questions.

Hi everyone!

Yesterday and today my novel is free for the 1st time on KDP.

So far, #79 overall and #6 in Women's Fiction.

Hope you can spare a few seconds to get your free copy!

Tks for all the great advice and support I've gotten since I discovered KB just a few months ago.

YES WE CAN!!!

Filipa

<merged with existing thread. Please, one thread per book. Bookmark this thread so that you can find it again, thanks! --Ann>

Congrats, Filipa! My co-author and I did a free KDP download of our novel and got as high as #6 in the Epic Fantasy section and #7 in the Family Saga department, so I understand your excitement!  :D Hooray for you!
