Boy, once you get a book published by self-publishing it on Amazon, you really need to do a lot of self-promotion.
I have been really busy since my book, Wilderness Heart, has come out on Amazon.com's kindle book list on February 8, 2011. I have been researching how I can market it on other ereaders and have joined some author forums as well as some book review web sites, such as http://www.goodreads.com, joined http://www.mobileread.com author forum, working on this blog, and researching and downloading all sorts of programs for the writer to use to help me publish the next book....if and when I get started/finished with it. I have to say there are a lot of great people/authors out there willing to help new authors such as myself with formatting, cover suggestions, how the kindle process works, etc.
I had really great news when I woke up this morning and logged onto facebook. One of my father's twin sisters left me a message that she purchased my book that morning. I asked her if she had purchased a Kindle to read it and she said no, she downloaded the Kindle for PC program so she could read my book. I had forgotten about that. So if people want to read books and don't have a kindle reader, they can do what my aunt did. I also reminded a friend who said she had a Nookbook that she too could download the Kindle for PC and read my book on her computer that way. I told my aunt she could be the first one to review my book if she liked it on Amazon. Totally awesome.
This is actually an exciting process and fun.
