In my previous post I wrote about doing a Goodreads Giveaway for a romance novel I published. I’m not doing a giveaway with the new retiree travel jobs guide. The cost for the Goodreads Giveaway outweighed the benefits.
So here is a capsule version of what ‘How Seniors Travel for Fun and Profit’ it is all about:
Retired? Eager to travel but only have a shoe-string budget? In this guide you will learn, step-by-step, fun ways to make money while you are traveling. And find out how to live for free in National Parks in the U.S. and abroad as well as how to pay zero rent in big cities like London or Sydney and tropical beachfront homes.
More interested in enriching your spiritual life and earning the goodwill of others now that you are retired? Learn about ways and places to do it around the world.
And discover where age discrimination is no problem. There are vacation companies actively seeking Seniors. So read this guide and start packing. Travel fun and money are straight ahead.
Today is definitely a happy day! After working on this novel for a year–off-and-on–it went live on Kindle, Nook and Kobo at midnight. I have a ‘slight misadventure’ to report, however. Yesterday at a little after 4 p.m. I received an email from Amazon telling me ‘L.A. Ladies’ was live. It was eight hours earlier than I thought, but I assumed that Amazon must function on Greenwich Mean Time–that’s near London–and it was just after midnight there. So I activated two advertising campaigns. When I got around to looking at the actual page on Kindle, the order button still read ‘pre-order now’.
Did I lose some sales? I don’t know. This morning my pre-orders appeared as sales, so everything is running fine now.
In this novel Robin, who has lived a privileged life in Los Angeles, begins anew after the unexpected death of her husband and finds herself in situations she never dreamed she would encounter. Love and danger seem to be turning her new life upside down. And the collie on the cover? Her name is Pretty Girl and she plays an important role at two turning points in the book.
Here is where you can find the ebook:
It is also available as a paperback on Amazon.
