I have some great news and hope you don’t mind me sharing this with you? Yesterday I received the 5th email from Amazon.co.uk promoting my How to Get Started With Twitter For Absolute Beginners, Get Going And Get Growing A Step-By-Step guide; at the top of its list, in ‘are you looking for something in our computing store’. And my book is in the subject line for their email, for at least a third time.
For this, my second book, I went with a very specific strategy, and although the book is inexpensive at only 99p – $1.40, sales although not always every day, are regular, and even more with Amazon promoting it for me. I am so proud just to get my name more out there as a writer and I am learning so much about Kindle publishing. I really want to make a full-time career out of writing, it is what I love to do, it’s in my heart, my soul, and it’s every breath I take. I feel so blessed that what I created is getting into the minds of many people and that I am understanding my passion and my desire to do this is more than ever before. If I can create more books that sell successfully, I can create training courses for others and more books in the future about how to be successful with Kindle.
I am still learning at the moment, but this success so far, has made my night shine, my day sparkle, and my heart come alive. No one really knows the extent to which writing is what I was destined to do. When I am writing (non-fiction books), it makes me feel sensational and that this was always the destiny that I chose for myself when I started this blog over 5 years ago and when I was made redundant in 2009, when I discovered I was born to write and to help others who have been made redundant to get back into work. But writing will always be my first love. I want to write so badly, it consumes my being.
My mind lately just keeps saying I want to write, I want to write, I want to write. I know with every molecule in me, that this is what I must do. It makes me feel physically sick when I think of this and am not writing, it’s like I am holding myself back. I have so many unwritten books bursting out of me, so much knowledge, skills and experience to offer the world, it’s like I can’t write them fast enough. There is stuff I have to take care of first at this time, before I can write every moment of the day in future.
It’s a hard road to travel, with uncertainty in terms of creating a full-time living, and I am still happy in my day job right now – but don’t worry – it gives me time to come up with more writing ideas, so is helpful too.
Thanks for your continued support and never give up on your dream. Keep being quirky xx And write soon xx
