Coyote at the edge of the forest looking back

Join Riley and Granny at Pyramid Lake where they have a sticky fireside treat and catch glimpses of some furry forest friends that remind him of his friend, Mia.

I am tickled to share that my new children’s book is now live on Amazon! It seems such a simple task when following the courses and tutorials…but as you may recall from my musings about Book 2, it is far from simple!

Keywords, Categories and Phrases, oh my!

It often feels like the enchanted forest with a thick, intricate web of roots and branches and the occasional apple knocking me on the noggin, but alas! The KDP wizards have given me my wish and my beautiful book is out there for all the world to enjoy. *A curious question – What words did or would you search when looking for this book?

Your feedback on this is more helpful than you can imagine because I want to make sure that my book gets in front of the right people. The kids, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, etc. who will appreciate the beautiful images that Jennifer created and the story that incorporates a little bit of learning about Jasper National Park and a LOT of love.

Before I attempt any marketing, I am keeping it low key for THREE DAYS ONLY and offering the ebook for FREE. Who doesn’t love free stuff, right?

FREE FOR 3 DAYS ONLY – Nov 12, 13, 14, 2022

No, I’m not soft in the brain and yes, I do want to actually sell my books to generate income. To boil down everything that I’ve learned through courses, research and trial and error – in order to become noticed, it is important to build a repertoire of reviews. I don’t buy anything without checking independent reviews.

The more reviews, the better AND a “verified review” makes the Amazon algorithms notice me more, which in turn, puts my books in front of more potential buyers.

When you purchase it, even for zero dollars and post a review, you are now a verified reviewer. It doesn’t provide as much leverage as a regular sale, but it’s an excellent start for ‘lil ole me as an independent publisher.

Do you know that you have a Super Power?

You do. Your opinion matters. Your honest review of my book, which I’m offering for free, is invaluable. Just find my book here on Amazon, purchase the ebook for FREE. Of course, I am hoping that you will love it so much that you want to share it with everyone that you think would also love it. And before you ask, YES you can even share it while it is free for purchase! Please share it with anyone that you think may enjoy it and ask them to write a review.

My books are available on Amazon in several countries. If you have friends anywhere in the world, be sure to share with them, too!

Riley’s Adventures with Granny in the Mountains – Coyotes and Wolves at Pyramid Lake is the third book in my series. Available in ebook format for FREE on November 12, 13 and 14.

What about the paperback?

Of course the paperback version is available for purchase. My hope is that you will love the ebook so much that you will want to purchase it for your own children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews etc.
