So There IS Light at The End of the Tunnel

I have the tools to track the sales of my book via Amazon.com, CreateSpace.com, Expanded Distribution Channel and Kindle sales (including those for Great Britain and Germany) online. No sales have been reported in either Great Britain or Germany to date, however overall Kindles have spiked greatly!

I’ve had several pleasant surprises this week. It looks like sales via those areas have sudden up-ticks in the paperback version!

I seriously attribute this to reviews that have been posted regarding the book. There are 11 for the paperback version so far and (only) one for the Kindle version. More to come, I hope.

Additionally, I heard from a veterinarian’s office located in Venice, FL (the background for my book), that it’s really being well-received. I’ve placed copies in that office, and all of the office staff has read the book (or is in the process of reading it) and every response has been beyond positive!

All copies that I’ve placed there have sold, and they want me to replenish their supply!

Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to provide a review at Amazon.com. I have no doubt that each one of them was instrumental in the increase in sales, and I want you all to know how much I appreciate your input!

Some day I'll get a kindle. Then I promise to post a review. I'm thinking the kindle version should be every bit as good as the print version, right? :)

The Kindle version is the same as the paperback version, Cheryl. Did you know that you can get a Kindle for PC FREE at Amazon.com? You cannot take it to the beach, but it "reads" the same way a Kindle does. You can change the font size, etc.
