Time To Breathe

The novel has been out for a few months now. I have sold more than 20 copies, and given away 170. Now that there are people out there reading the book, it's time for me to let it go.

Blowing It! is not the kind of book you can shout out to the world about. It has a very small potential audience of people interested in balloons sexually, or interested in people who are interested in balloons. So it's basically time for me to let the book take on a life of its own, whatever that life might be.

I'll be here to fulfill orders if needed, and I am now going to dive in and correct all those typographical errors I alluded to earlier (I would have sooner, but my only printed copy of the book was with my wife, who has finally finished reading it).

And then I'll let it go, go on to other book projects that I can tell anyone and everyone that I wrote, and that may have larger readerships, though only time will tell.

Perhaps Blowing It! will catch on widely enough in fetish circles to make me think about going back to do the sequel. Perhaps not. But I'm still very happy that I wrote the book and went through the self-publishing process. I've learned a lot.

And if you are one of the almost-200 people who have read the book, I hope that I have created something that was worth your time, and that you'll eventually find a way to let me know.

And, straight from the heart, I want to say "thank you."

I've Got Readers

At least, I've got downloaders. I've given away, as of this writing, 137 copies of the Kindle edition of Blowing It! and there's still some 16 hours left on the promotion. It will be interesting to see what happens in the time that follows, if I really do sell more books after the free promotion than I sold before.

If you are one of the nice people who downloaded my book in the last couple of days, you can help. Review it on Amazon, talk about it in the balloon forums, leave comments here on the blog. Even if you didn't like the book, just talk about it.

And if you haven't downloaded the book yet, there's still time to get it for free. Right here.

Giving It Away

It was a strange feeling to wake up this morning, go to my Kindle app, and search the store for "Balloon Fetish," and find my book listed at $0.00. Am I doing the right thing? Others who have tried free promos say that their sales increased after a free promo. I just want lots of people to read my book, because that's why I wrote it.

But if I can't even give it away ... no, that's just author's paranoia setting in. I've already given away four books, and the promo has just gotten started.

So, click here and have a good read. But hurry, because it's only free until midnight tomorrow (PDT).

And review, please. It doesn't have to be a good review, just an honest one.
