What an experience Indie publishing has been. Grassroots marketing, beating the pavements, talking, selling, marketing. . . it can all be exhausting. But it seems to win the day. That and of course a good story, which clearly FLYING SOLO is indeed! All of the reviews from customers have not only been good, but stellar. It still has not changed the minds of those staid individuals who believe that Indie publshing does not work. To those people, I would say…GAHHHH!!! have you met Amanda Hocking?
A good book is a good book. Word of mouth is everything in this industry. Great stories are great stories and if written well will indeed sell. To those who have snubbed, I will just politely invite them to the next book signing event. Word of mouth is everything! Talk about it. Blog about it. Shout it from the rooftops. If it is a good story. . . . and you did your homework with editing and writing. It will sell!!!
For now, I am happy to help other writers who are outstanding and need a voice! Please contact the Indie publisher willing to listen and read your works! That is AgeView Press. www.ageviewpress.com Without that opportunity. . . I would still be papering my walls with rejection letters instead of celebrating at book signings like this! Stop thinking about it and just do it! NIKE had it right!
Can’t believe the day has finally arrived, but Flying Solo is now available for purchase! Although you can get it on Amazon.com or Barnes and Noble BN.com shortly. . .it is really more ideal to purchase it directly from CreateSpace as the publisher AgeView Press recommends.
This book was written as a vehicle to raise funds for my son, Harrison who has muscular dystrophy. Medical equipment is very costly, even with insurance. We are trying to obtain a wheelchair van that has airconditioning. Also a lift to get him into the pool. As well as a rolling shower chair. So humble are the reasons for working this project.
So, even though you are getting a great read, you are also paying it foward! Please enjoy the book and feel free to post your comments here!
My new novel entitled, Flying Solo: an unconventional aviatrix navigates turbulence in life is almost here. After much anticipation, the final, FINAL, proofs were completed. Ahhhh….now time to sit back and relax right? Wrong, writing the book was easy. . . now it is time for shameless self promotion. Blogging, advertisting, facebooking, twittering, interviewing, booksigning. Wow, exhausting just to think about it all. But so worth it to put the book in the hands of your readers.
Here are some links to follow for my own self promotion:

Some pages just not perfection. Oh well, first view! But coming soon. Stay tuned. In the meantime. . . enjoy the trailer. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2eVC7q2Jkk0
