My friend T.P. Keane, who is also with Distinguished Press, has this adventure going on. If you’re interested in the publishing world, how it works, and how very temperamental the industry can be, take a look at this piece of the publishing puzzle.
The publishing world is harsh, anyone who has tried to entice a Literary Agent, or self-publish, for the first time can tell you that (and probably show you their papier mache house made out of rejection letters). So when I came across Kindle Scout I thought it truly was the best of both worlds. Instead of publishing this book myself I submitted my children’s chapter book to an exclusive Amazon program – Kindle Scout. It has been exciting, daunting and I sometimes feel like a toddler learning to walk for the first time. To that end, I’d like to invite you to check out Kindle Scout and perhaps help me.
Here’s how it works:
Just click on this link to see my new book. If you like what you read and think the book is worthy of being published by Amazon click the “Nominate Me” button. If I have enough votes between Sept. 13 and Oct. 13 the book will be forwarded to the Kindle Scout editors. The editors will then decide on whether they’re going to publish the book. If they do, they’ll send you a free copy of the e-book. And, I can keep writing while Amazon handle the marketing.
Many of you have helped already and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate everything that you’re doing! But, I still have a long way to go. So, once again I’m asking for your assistance. If you haven’t done so already, I would truly appreciate you taking a few seconds to read the short segment and (if you like the work), click “Nominate Me” to help me reach the next level. By clicking the link you’ll also be in the running to receive a copy of my new book should the editors choose mine to be published.
Thank you once again for all of your help and I’ll update you at the end of the campaign to let you know the results.
As always, I am truly appreciative of your support!
