I've collected some of my experiences and thoughts on the indie journey and brought in some guest columnists to help out (konrath, Tyley, Henkel, Winters, graphic designer Lon Shapiro, Vincent Zandri). The goal of this book is not to help you sell a million copies, but to be happy with the number of copies you are selling and build on that. Most of us are not going to win the indie lottery, but we have a great window of opportunity to find our audience. While giving an overview of business, publishing, and product development, the primary purpose is the find joy in the reason you are even writing at all.


I know, that sounds like some self-help pablum designed to separate you from your dollars. True, I'd like to sell a few copies, but I'm not starving here. So in the spirit of the book, you are also welcome to share it with anyone who is struggling with their own indie journey and the cost is a hardship to them--and I'll even give you a moneyback guarantee that you will sell more than enough extra copies to cover your own cost.

$4.99 at http://www.amazon.com/Indie-Journey-Secrets-Writing-ebook/dp/B0050I5TXA

Anyone with a writing blog that would like a free e-copy for review, please PM me or mail me at hauntedcomputerbooks At yahoo.com. Thanks and I hope you are enjoying your own journey.

Congratulations on your book, Scott!

(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.

Thanks, Steve, I think the real challenge is to be happy with the success you achieve. John Locke might make thousands writers miserable when they don't sell a million ebooks by copying his blueprint (and I love John, but that's not going to happen for many people). Life is about more than selling books. (Don't tell the union I said that or they will take away my card...)

Having done big press, small press, no press, 800 rejection slips, I can say this is the best time to be a writer in the history of ever. It's not going to stay like this forever, but it's really cool, so I hope everyone enjoys it to the fullest.
