Smashwords is Go!

So I took the plunge and uploaded Mankind Limited to Smashwords. It’s available there now! It is currently awaiting review for the premium catalogue – after which it will be available on other outlets such as Knook and IBooks!

So watch this space – or go directly to Smashwords to get it now!

Or go to my website for the other links.

Self Publishing Ups and Downs

thehouseofbailey

Well, it’s only been a week since I venture onto Smashwords so this is probably premature – but…

Emotionally it’s been up and down. I was elated that I got through to the premium catalogue on the first attempt – gives me confidence that I have the technical skills at least!

Seeing my book in the Nook store and on IBooks have me a real pleasure.

On the Smashwords dashboard, I see that 14 people have sampled the book already and over 100 pages read.

However, 0 sales.

That’s making me feel despondent. I thought that maybe I just wasn’t reaching anyone through Amazon Kindle. That my feeble marketing attempts just weren’t going anywhere.

Now? It seems that it’s getting noticed – but after reading some of it, they are not buying it to read the rest.

What do I have to do?

It’s hard to tell what’s going on though…
