Referring to my last post, I mentioned about some people who love my ebook and most of them hate it. Looks like it’s true. On a website where I put my ebook for free (well, not only Kindle which can give free ebook), one of the downloaders gave my ebook 4 star. It’s both surprising and also lifted my mood a little bit. After the hatred reviews I received, some people love it. Perhaps To Love Again indeed not for all readers. Picky and strict readers won’t like or even love my ebook, but the others who look for entertainment probably love it.
There’s always silver linings in every dark clouds. I wonder if my next ebook (the manuscript submitted to ABNA) will get the same treatment.
Since it’s already reached 1k+ downloads, I plan to ask the website to delete my ebook tomorrow. I think it’s enough for the exposure. If you have ebook and want to make it free, but don’t like the Amazon-exclusive thing, free-ebooks.net could be your choice.
Writing is my other hobbies besides reading and watching movies. I don’t know how many stories I’ve created since I fell in love with writing, from the cheesy one to the one I really write it with all my heart. To make my story to become a book is another thing all together.
In 2009, I started to write and post it publicly and I must say I gained a lot of audiences. In 2012 is where a publisher (or at least that’s what they called themselves), contacted me and wanted to publish one of my stories. I feel so happy, of course, but then everything just went spiral down. I haven’t heard from them for more than six months and that was when I cut our agreement. And several weeks ago was my turn point when accidentally I can contact one of local publishers. They agreed to publish my story and again, I’m happy. But, another problem came up. The shipping fee is too expensive. My readers from overseas can’t afford to buy my book because of the fees. And for the second time I plummeted.
One of the readers asked me if I made an ebook version for my book and that was when I started to look how to publish ebook ON MY OWN. Several days struggling and sometimes feeling desperate, I finally knew how to make an ebook.
And now, I present to you my first ebook ‘To Love Again.’
Being a divorcee with a two-year old son who moves from Seattle to Chicago to run a flower shop, is not an easy thing for Lily Anderson, especially when Shane, her ex-husband, left a scar on her heart. After seven years of being alone, Aidan Campbell comes into her shop and rocks her routine. Aidan is very different from Shane; he is charming, he loves Lily’s son, Nathan, and most importantly he is handsome. Despite her scarred heart, Lily knows Aidan may be the reason for her to love again.
This ebook is available on Kindle, Lulu, iBookstore and Payhip. You can find the links to buy here with only $4,99. After this one, I have another story ready to get publish…and yes, it’s also in ebook.
