On the first of each month I check the source outlets for my eBooks just to note down the number of downloads for each book. A couple years on the downloads now number in the hundreds. Amazing. That is something I never imagined at all when I began creating them. I’m sure making them available for free helps.
I often wonder what people think of them, good or bad, but never have received any feedback. I think my email address is noted somewhere in the books but I don’t come right out and ask for reviews or feedback like many authors do which helps boosts their sales on Amazon and the like.
Yesterday in checking the downloads I finally noticed a place where views or comments were posted. I never knew that was there. One comment read: “I am 90 years old and these books have given me adventure for many days. As I love cats Sinbad and Beans have filled my days with joy.” That meant the world to me. For people like Joesph is why I write these books. I know there are people out there for one reason or another cannot live the life that we do. Some may be homebound, unable to get out much for health reasons or simply old age. I tell our stories for them.
Currently I am in the process of doing the final edit for this years eBook. I enjoy the writing and I enjoy the editing too, putting on the final polish to the work. ‘Work’ is a poor name for it is anything but work. It is all pleasure for me except for getting a photo for the cover. Beans doesn’t cooperate. I have that yet to do for this years book.
All are available to download to your eReader or Kindle for free by just clicking on the books to the right of this post.
NOTICE: Two readers reported the downloads in the sidebar did not work for them. I test them before placing them in the sidebar and I haven’t heard of problems before. I tested them again this morning and was able to download all five. Do not buy them off of Amazon if you have a problem. Amazon forces me to set a price. They don’t allow free stuff on their site. If you have a problem with the downloads, go to smashwords.com and download them directly from there for free.
