One of the things that I have said when I planned to release my book was that it wasn't about making money. I'm a realist and I know that authors are a dime a dozen. Amazon does make it easy for any wannabe author to write a Kindle ebook and publish it. My primary goal was to take the chapters that were sitting in my hard drive unread, and turn them into a book that was read.
By Thursday the paid downloads were very minimal (less than 10). I think 4 of them belonged to me for my copy and gift copies that I purchased for a few people that were in my book. It was my way of thanking them for participating. I knew that Amazon offered a promo where you can list your book for free for up to 5 days. There is a payout from a monthly fund based on the number of free downloads. I decided what the heck, I just want my book to be read. That was the best thing that I could have done. As of this writing there are 223 downloads since yesterday and we are #1 in the free downloads in the Dog category. I'm happy with the outcome and hope that each and every one of the people who downloads my book will enjoy reading it.
And for her reward for being #1, extra belly rubs for Mindy today!
Until next time....happy tails!
