Ever Get Frustrated?

So, my book is free all this week, having participated in Smashwords free ebook promotion this week.  I’ve posted the freebie on facebook, twitter, linkedin, multiple times a day.  The problem?  No hits, no downloads, no feedback.

Makes me want to yell, scream “It’s FREE…what else do you want?”  As an author, we all think our work is the next best seller to hit the top ten.  My ebook has only been out a few months now and i’m wondering how to get more media interested in it.

In the meantime, I have four blogs (including this one) to post on each day.  There are daily posts (excepting most weekends) on www.EncourageHealthyHabits.com , www.TheTechGadget.com and http://brickoneil.blogspot.com which is my “Just a Book Blog” Blog.  I’ve also updated my linkedin profile,  and my monster profile (which I cant find the link, but it’s under Brick ONeil).  They’re connected, too!

So, go browse, search and enjoy!

oh, and download my book, it’s FREE this week 😉

  1. I will post a comment because I can relate! It is extremely difficult to get noticed as an author and the constant ‘trying’ seems to take up all your novel writing time. I wish you luck and if I had a Nook or Kindle, I would be your first downloader!

    1. Thank you Brandie! Both Nook and Kindle have free reading aps for pc’s. Plus, Smashwords has other formats available, such as html, rtf and others, for most any device!
