Encouraging the masses

After my book was made available to the public, I enjoyed a brief period of it doing quite well, in fact better than I expected to be honest. It's now been downloaded over 550 times and went into the Kindle top 20 humour charts. All very good, I thought, something to be sustained, I thought...... Continue Reading →

How I’ve tried to promote my book

I've found, since abandoning my book to the amazon website, that the internet is full of people's opinions on how best to promote ebooks to the masses. Some of this advice seems quite logical, some of it a waste of time, personally speaking. Here are some brief notes on what I've found so far: Kindle... Continue Reading →

Hell Pt.2: KIndle Nightmares

This might be partly true, as I have seen that it's easier to create something from where you have some level of experience and what experience do... Continue Reading →
