It's on Kindle!

I can't believe it. After more than a month, SONORA SYMPHONY is available in Kindle USA here and in the  Kindle UK here.

I assume there's a reason it's on Kindle UK and not USA. Hopefully, it will show up there in the next day or two or three or .....[quick update - it showed up on the USA site after I posted this!]

It has kept me quite busy sending out the press release and requests for reviews by a whole lot of different sites. I guess that's the downside to being a "published" author. It's a lot of work and quite detracting from the other things I'm trying to do.

Just a side word about Open Office. The more I use it, the easier it becomes. And, I'm quite pleased with the quick and helpful responses I've been getting from their website.


  1. Congratulations. It can take a while for things to settle down on Amazon. When my book came out, the paperback was available and linked to the eBook in the UK about a week before it showed up on the US site.

    Now the hard part begins. Marketing and promoting your book.

  2. Oh have you got that right!!!!!

    Luckily, some time ago I found a great website called Mondo Times @ that has direct links to media outlets throughout the world.

    The hardest part is going to each newspaper or television station to try to find out who to send the press release to. However, as usual, for a bit of $$$$ they'll provide direct links and you can even have them send out your press release for a fee.

    What frustrated me is that I thought that would be something a publisher would do automatically.
