    Good afternoon and greetings!

    My site name (as on the topic) is KidatHeart6575; called so because I write and illustrate children's books and I like children's materials in general, whether they are books, records (vinyl), animation and even toys.

    My lifelong ambition is to establish myself through the books I have created and branch out to produce a line of children's records and eventually animation, practically in the style that I have listened to and watched when I myself was a kid. (Very ambitious, I know, but everyone has their dreams, and this has been mine since I was 8.)

    My basic problem (among other things) is that although I consider myself to be talented in several aspects, my sense of salesmanship is sorely lacking. Case in point: I have a book that I've been trying to sell for almost 3 years. Most of my efforts have proven to be unfruitful.

    So I guess that's why I'm here....for support and ideas (and I'm sure to throw some to you as well!).

    Sorry for my being long-winded. :)

    have you got it in Amazon: print & ebook, yet? That's probably the first step.

    I've just "posted" the book through CreateSpace; it is currently available there. It will be available at Amazon in at least 5-7 business days.

    That's a good start. You can post the PDF at Lulu and Scribd. Will it work as a Kindle book?

    They could still do a downloadable PDF and print the pages they want to color.

    That's true. Though I don't have the slightest idea how to sell a downloadable item...much less put out a downloadable item.

    I'm hopelessly old school it's not even funny.
