ANOTHER ATTEMPT FAILED

I finally converted my award winning children's book "A Lesson My Cat Taught Me" to a KINDLE Edition earlier this year reducing the paperback price of $6.95 to $2.99 for the KINDLE sales were to say DISMAL. For one week last week I had a KINDLE Countdown for it, reducing the price to a mere 99 cents, and to my disbelief I sold less than 10 copies at this low price.




With this failure I now giving away 10 autographed copies of my book with the award sticker attached to those on GoodReads.  As part of my description for the giveaway I've given links to the award I've won as well as information on the group connect with the award.

The award is open to the US only !!!

The lesson the book tries to convey is the acceptance of others for who they are and not what they are. While the book is geared for children between the ages of 5 – 8, it's enjoyable by readers of any age.
Here’s the information on the award my book received:  http://tinyurl.com/nrkprqe
A paperback edition is also available on the usual Amazon sites.

EVERYTHING HAS REMAIN THE SAME UNTIL NOW

Despite all my efforts sales of my award winning children's book "A Lesson My Cat Taught" has been to say the least dismal  :-(  :-(  :-(
I've offered to do a book signing and donate of portion of each sale to a 501c3 charity twice, one never returned any messages even after two phone calls to them. Each time they wanted a copy of the book for their review. I'm still waiting until tonight [June 13 2014] to receive a return call after which I'm going to cancel my offer.
So if no one is actually buying any copies, whether it be the paperback or KINDLE edition, I'm holding a GIVEAWAY
from Sunday, June 22nd @12:00 AM until

          Saturday, June 28th @ 11:59 PM

NOTHING NEW IS HAPPENING

Just to let everyone know I'm not missing. It's just there's nothing happening to regards to my award winning children's book "A Lesson My Cat Taught Me."


While I am see a few sales on the book on KINDLE most have been in the UK.  No matter how often I post something about the book on the internet, nothing seems to materialize when it comes to realizing any substantial sale figures.  I've got two completed manuscripts written for the same 5 - 8 year olds which comprise a minor series. And I've got a third manuscript halfway finished, waiting for the two completed ones to the self-publishing process.


Perhaps I should have written my book under a pen name of some sort.


Anyway I've begun a push on LinkedIn to connect with people. Got to connect with scores more people on FaceBook and Twitter, etc. I've got to be able to break through the ice one day or another.


One thing I need to be able to do is to get on Ellen DeGeneres show - but getting on can only happen in a dream,

A NEW YEAR - NEW HOPES FOR SUCCESS !!!











This year I made a New Year's Resolution to finally get the sales of my award winning children's book, "A Lesson My Cat Taught Me" moving.  To accomplish this I've just started the process to convert the book to a KINDLE format.  It's amazing, children as young as five I've learned are actually reading books on KINDLE devices.

The process should take about ten days to complete. Meanwhile, I'm officially back and promise to make regular posts here from now on.
