Western romance for 99 cents

I'm a guest blogger at today.

They use Wordpress software for their blog, and something is messed up as the formatting was stripped from my post, and the admin tried to fix it, but it is still a bit whacked. It must be Murphy's law of trying to promote my book.

Anyhoo, it's the story of how I came to write my first book -- my brain had to go somewhere far away and long ago while I was riding that #!?& bike to lose all the weight.

Welcome to MR, AnnaM. Sorry for the problems on the formatting errors..

Your link doesn't seem to go through for me.. I don't have a Kindle (you may have noted that this is an international forum and not everyone has Kindles), but I did want to read about your book.

I am donating 100% of my (author) 2009 profits from Kindle sales of Unbroken Hearts and Untamed Hearts to the American Heart Association.

As the holiday season approaches, I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate my family's good fortune than by sharing all the love that flows from Cal and Sarah, Roy and Margaret, "and Emily and Luke (coming soon).

This is also my way of thanking readers, who took a chance on a new author, as I hope some benefit may someday come back to them or a loved one when it is needed. Truly, what goes around comes around: My own daughter suffered a stroke this past year, and the years of medical research funded by AHA were a blessing to our family, as she has fully recovered and is thriving today.

Love to all,

Anna M.

Anna, what a nice way to celebrate your family's good fortune.

Have you looked into in order to offer your work in more formats? We are an international forum of many devices and your work would be available to a wider audience.

Many of our author/members have their work on smashwords and those of us without Kindles may purchase their work to read on our devices.

I had the book on Smashwords for a long time (over a year), but it sold only one copy the entire time it was available on that platform.

Meanwhile I sold hundreds on Kindle, and I made edits to the book. Converting and and uploading for multiple platforms was a big hassle.
So, I made a business decision to remove the book from Smashwords, where I was doing work for no return.

Kindle is THE platform, as books sell very well there, and now almost everyone can read a book from Kindle (the new Kindle for PC software makes the books accessible to nearly everyone). As an independent author, who has no marketing or administrative support team (and must choose to leverage time to best advantage), I find that "Kindle-only" is the best strategy.

Again, this was a business decision based on return on my investment; I may revisit it in the future, and everything could change if my work is ever accepted by a larger publisher.

I ended 2009 with $670.89 in royalties from sales on Amazon Kindle (448 books sold in December!), and the money has been sent off to American Heart Association. Thanks for helping to contribute through your purchases.

You can read more about the AHA contribution and my background on my Amazon author page at:
