Chocolate in almost any form is great! Cake, candy bars, cookies, fudge, cupcakes, chocolate milk, chocolate ice cream and my favorite chocolate yogurt. (Fudge Recipe at the end of this blog) Chocolate activates endorphin in our brains and this causes us to have a feeling of satisfaction.
Another form of satisfaction is being in contact with people who would love to read your book.
If you have a computer, phone, Kindle, Ipad or anything electronic and if you are my friend you know I just did my first Kindle book give-a-way. I set my goal at 50 and I gave-a-way 209. I am very satisfied with that amount.
This was my process:
- Decided the date and how many days
- Started contacting people with blogs (by contacting I mean begged)
- Changed my mind twice on the date
- Contacted more people with blogs
- Set the date with Amazon
- Contacted more people with blogs (finally reaching about a dozen)
Satisfaction comes from having friends who care and want to help each other. Here is a list of my wonderful friends who featured me on their blogs.
Drumroll-In please, in no particular order:
I want to thank each of these lovely people for featuring me on their blogs.
I attended and shared each blog as much as possible. I also had several friends who shared the links that I put up on my various social media pages.
The next thing I did was to check to see what my give-a-way tally was about 3 or 4 times a day.
I checked twice a day to see how I was ranking in sales in the Action and Adventure category. I ended up ranking in the top 100 of ebooks sales.
It was a hard/easy process. I was excited through the whole process. It was also nerve-racking and time consuming. I don’t know yet if I will do it again. I am hoping to get some sales and some reviews from the give-a-way.
I want to thank everyone for bearing with me on the continual posts about my “Free Kindle Book” and thank everyone who downloaded it. I am grateful and satisfied.
