Back in the Fall of 2013, I published my first collection of short stories to the applaud of a small handful of people. I was an unknown, one of many hundred independent authors publishing via Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing platform.
It was fun and a super simple process but I never believed I could actually be one of those authors I saw connecting with their readers and with my own readers actually waiting for MY books. In fact, I had a lot of work ahead of me but I pushed forward. Fast-forward to this year and I finally have achieved one of my goals.
This year alone, I have sold over five thousand ebooks on Amazon and connected with hundreds of my readers via email, Facebook messenger, and Twitter. The happiest moments of this experience have been messages from readers sharing with me how much they enjoyed my stories and how for some of them, the books had even helped them during difficult times in their lives. There is no value that I can put on these very personal exchanges.
Without Amazon, this would not have been possible. As I look to the rest of the year, I have plans for two more novels, my first audiobook that I'm creating via ACX, and to continue to create a world that my readers love.
This is only possible due to Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing. I"m proud to be an Indie Author!
