Continuing my journey of listing titles 'wide', rather than exclusive to Kindle, I've established a beachhead in Googleplay. A bit of a palaver, but I have created my account, and had it accepted, and uploaded a book - Small Town Kid - and had it go live. Woo hoo! I have no idea what real … Continue reading Small Town Kid meets Googleplay and GoogleBooks. . .
The new listing on Smashwords has gone live now - still in pre-order today, I think. That means Barnes and Noble, Kobo and others now stock the digital edition of the book, for reading on the Nook and other generic devices that aren't Kindle. I decided to revisit the book in an article posted on … Continue reading Small Town Kid – update

I like Smashwords a lot, but as an author, … Continue reading Small Town Kid – listing on Smashwords

Very lovely. Thank you to UK readers for nudging Small Town Kid up a little. I'm quite delighted. ~
I've advertised Small Town Kid in both, the US and UK, via the promotional newsletter of 'The Fussy Librarian'. You might recall I was beside myself a short time ago when Walk Away Silver Heart hit #1 in about 8 Kindle categories and in a couple of different countries. That was a free promotion, also … Continue reading Small Town Kid – price drop promotion

Take a look at her … Continue reading Small Town Kid – thank you Petrina
