If there is anything that doing a Kindle Scout program has taught me it is this; you need to be able to connect to more people that just those whom are on your social network. You need to be go a little mini-viral ... and I didn't.
I thought if I received enough traction with my own online connection that maybe it might be shared, and others would recommend and so forth and so on ... But that didn't work ...
I have no ill feeling towards the campaign - I was actually proud of myself for going forth and hitting the goals I needed to each day.
I have learnt though, to have someone who is a professional in the field of PR is a necessary asset to have in the back pocket.
If I had my chance again then I would do things a little differently.
I am going to publish another book again, because I love writing - it is a little hobby of mine now which sits neatly inside me.
I hope that my journey in Kindle Scout is one that others might follow. I would really love to have a friend or person-I-know become accepted into the program ...
Look out for the self-published version of Lewis McKillop coming soon to Kindle soon.
