For the last year and a half, I’ve been focusing on promoting my books on Kindle. After having been told, having read from several sources, and having convinced myself that becoming a bestselling paperback author was basically impossible, I just put my paperback books out their without paying any major attention to them.
This morning I went to look at my Kindle Amazon ranking and I accidentally clicked on the paperback version, only to discover that Chique Secrets of Dolce Vita was #17 in paperbacks.
Seriously, I had tears in my eyes. And not because of Amazon ranking or book sales or royalty checks. But because I felt the love given to my book. Because I knew I had sent my baby out into the wild world and she had been doing extraordinarily well for herself.
We, writers, write because it brings us joy, because we want to leave a footprint in the world, and because seeing that somebody actually loves what we have created is the most fantastic feeling in the world, I swear!
