After ending my last Kindle Select contract I posted my book on Kobo and Smashwords. While I'm grateful for having done that, as I had to reformat the book and thus learned quite a book, I never saw much activity and missed my participation in the Kindle Select library. So I have suspended (not cancelled) my book on those sites, though the paperbacks are still available on Blurb and Createspace.
This not only means people can read my book again through the Kindle library, but also gives me 5 days in the next term for free giveaways. Thinking of doing that through Canadian Thanksgiving and Christmas, but we'll see.
And finally, for those who care about salmon, I watched the salmon spawn for about a week and have distressing news. A lot of those guys died in the attempt. Many dead fish at the bottom of the spawning run. It reminded me a lot of my own dating life, which tends to die in the attempt. I did start to see more successful jumps over the little falls on the way, though I never did see any make it up the final jump at the end into what I am going to call the Pool of Love, where the fish who make it will actually breed.
I recently finished several years of employment with the Canadian government to pursue a Master's degree. My secret goal is to become a self-sustaining author. This blog is dedicated to the first book I have ever put on the market.
