Welcome. I spend most of my time writing rather than lurking on here (I rarely post), but there is a lot of great info here. I'd just get lost and never get any work done if I visited too often. LOL
I'm mainly here this week to see what the December KDP borrow rate is.
But, figured I'd say Hi and welcome. Whatever your experience with this newly published book, keep writing. Some books do great, and some don't. Don't take anything personal (especially any bad reviews...as they come in way easier than the good ones). Some books just don't appear in the searches as well.
Hopefully yours will be a success though. I love seeing people able to make a living at this.
Welcome and best of luck to you with your book! My one bit of advice: celebrate each and every milestone. Being an indie can be overwhelming at times, but you're reaching for your goals, and that's nothing to sneeze at!
Congrats on your book! I'm a Newbie here, too. I published my first novel back in August (Witch Cop, book one). It's great to have a forum like this available. I feel like I need support from fellow self-published authors, especially since I recently got my first bad reviews. I think I'll just stop reading them.
