    Hi! I'm new to this site. So I hope I'm in the right spot to share about my book. My name is Kathleen I've been an Indie Author for almost 2 years now.
    The title of my book is: Marriages & Miscarriages:One woman's Personal Experiece . My book is considered a memoir. In it I share how I got through my 3 miscarriages. How I used them to make my marriage stronger and how they made my relationship with God stronger. I wrote my book in hopes of being able to help other women get throught their miscarriages along with their husbands. In the process I learned a lot about myself. My book is on the Kindle,Nook and Paperback.

    Hi! Thanks. Yeah I got my signature all set thank you. I'm hoping this site will help me get my book promoted more and hopefully more sales too. I'm hoping to reach a goal of 200 sales by January. I'm about 19 sales away!

    Hey I thought you might find my struggle to get sales interesting. I blogged about it. I don't know much about non fiction, but I do know that in Fiction, when you put book two out it really helped my sales. http://samanthafury-authorsden.blogspot.com/2012/09/a-lesson-on-e-book-sales.html

    Hi Samantha,
    Sorry it took so long to reply. I don't know if I will be writing another book. As much as my husband and my dad think I'm a good writer, there isn't anything on my heart to write about. As for my book sales. They've been pretty steady. I find the summer months don't get as many sales but I do still get sales. I haven't had the chance to read your blog yet, but I thought you might be interested in this numbers post my husband wrote I think a year ago http://bit.ly/mamnumbers

    I can't imagine not having another story. :) I have so many I can't keep up with them. I do suggest twitter if you don't use it. I think some of my sales come from those guys. Thanks for the link I'll look it over.

    LOL,Yes I do use Twitter along with Linkedin,G+,Pinterest and I have an author's page on Facebook if you are interested in taking a look at that. Above all I pray alot!
    I could never write a fictional book so I don't see any writing in my near future, but who knows what God has in mind. He might have me write another book about another part of my life.
