This article is the truth: ALLi- Want more self-publishing success? Write more books.

When I published my first (full length) book, Brunch at Ruby’s, I was left with a feeling of now what? I had a huge presale, and then a good couple of weeks of sales, and then the numbers started to fall and I didn’t know what to do. How was I supposed to keep that momentum? How would I keep people coming back to my page on Amazon|B&N|Smashwords, etc?

I asked a couple of more successful indie authors, what was the secret to high sales? What was the secret to a huge following? What was the secret to getting people to notice you, to keep selling books? The answer?

#SampleSunday (& Upcoming Sale!) – That Big Red Monster- Dinner at Sam’s

Welcome to another Sample Sunday at The Sweet Escape! I’m sharing a snip from the Brunch at Ruby’s followup, Dinner at Sam’s. It is the continuation of the story of three lifelong friends and good, southern food. If you haven’t read Ruby’s, this week would be a great week to pick it up — I’ll be running a Kindle Countdown Deal beginning March 17th! From March 17th- March 24th, Brunch at Ruby’s will start at 99cents and over the course of the next seven days go back to it’s regular sale price of $2.99. Make plans to grab it while it’s cheap!  In addition, Anonymous will be FREE from March 17-March 21 and I’ll lower the price on Same Time Next Week to match the price of Ruby’s as it rises!    And now… on with the show!
