If there was any lingering doubt in my mind about going the self-publishing route, readers pulverized it during March.
Third time's the charm, right? Seems to be true with Cleansing Eden - The Celebrity Murders. The crime novel was with two publishers before heading to the house of self. It's found robust success in the UK. That came out of left field, but I'm not complaining.
5 Funny Detective Stories - A Maynard Soloman Collection is fetching tons of interest in every e-book market. Most interesting, it became the number one political humor e-book in Italty for English language titles. Again, this totally caught me off guard. I'm still waiting for someone to pinch me.
Here in the US, readers are all about "borrowing" these titles from Amazon. That means they can read for free after joining Amazon Prime. I hope more people check out this innovative program, it's really a good deal.
A huge thank you to every reader who made March a month to remember. You're making all the difference to this humbled author.
P.S. Many have e-mailed me to share their thoughts after having a read. I appreciate this feedback and always write back. Feel free to contact me at bsobieck [at] journalist [dot] com.
