‘Tis the season for shouts of “ho, ho, ho!” For an Indie author such as myself, it’s the lament, “no, no, no!” All the hustle and bustle in preparation for the Christmas holiday may be the culprit for sluggish, sporadic, and stagnant book sales as of late.
Yet, the offsets outweigh the setbacks:
*My Non-Fiction Memoir collection, 100 Wild Mushrooms: Memoirs of the ‘60s won the “Golden Squirrel Independent Book Award for Best Non-Fiction”!
Within the span of a week, this Work received two more 5-Star reviews.
*I won a promo for Golden Box Books Publishing Services, January magazine.
*I won a contest sponsored by Rose Montague’s “12 Days of Book Buying Christmas Event”, and selected the Kindle copy for Walls of Silence by Helen Pryke:
*A photographer from The East Providence Post snapped several author photos for an upcoming article featuring my Non-Fiction Memoir collection published this past October.
*I received an invitation to participate in the 3rd Annual Book lovers’ Local Author Expo at the Cumberland Library in February.
For an Indie author, success isn’t defined by the amount of book sales. It’s about asserting one’s visibility for the recognition our literary endeavors deserve.
