Can you believe it? This has been a long time coming! It just seems so surreal to me! I am about to order another shipment of Poka City Blues to have in stock so that I can get this story in the hands of readers as quickly as possible when they order online. Seeing how April 28th is soon to be here, I want to make sure that I have plenty of books available on hand to ship out once that day arrives.
My fingers are going to be a bit achy for the next week and a half since I will be busy writing inspirational messages in each copy, but it is going to be worth it. Never would I have dreamed the number of readers who requested a paperback version of this story. It is all thanks to a few contests (where I came close to winning) and of course, literary reviews. Poka City Blues would have remained an Ebook if it was not for the number of paperback requests.
For the independent writers out there, do not become discouraged if your Ebooks have not sold a lot of copies. Poka City Blues only sold a couple thousand as an Ebook and that is the honest truth. After entering a few contests and submitting it for literary reviews, a whole new world of readers became interested in it and soon started to request paperback copies. Silly me assumed most readers loved Ebooks because we are in the “age of technology.” That is so far from the truth. The fact is the MAJORITY of readers prefer reading a story in an actual book versus on a tablet or iPad. Makes sense if you really think about it.
As you can see, I am really working hard to get this amazing story out there and as a token of my appreciation, I am going to give away five FREE copies. Stay tuned because next week I will post how you can enter to win your own copy of Poka City Blues valued at $21.95. What is next on my book list to offer in print form? Well, for that you will have to wait and see. I am taking it one book at a time.
Have a wonderful day everybody and may all your dreams and aspirations come true. I am rooting for you! You got this!!
Until next time…
