Our FREE E-book for Writers hit Google #1!!!

I have some fantastic news!!! My promotional strategies for my writing group's new free e-book, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Getting Published, is working!!!

This e-book was an experiment. I am writing a book on promoting e-books since I, myself, found it almost impossible to find ways to promote e-books, although I knew there must be a formula and I, indeed, have found the formula. And it works!!!

I told myself that when our book showed up on the first page of either Google or Yahoo under the search term, "Free e-books for writers," I would consider my strategy a success.

Tonight, it showed up in Google AND Yahoo under the FIRST listing!!!!

The link to Google is here and the link to Yahoo can be found here.

This is a moment to celebrate!

If I can do this with our free e-book, I can do this with other e-books!

If you still haven't received your copy of our free e-book, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Getting Published, click here. Because of my promotional strategy and the effectiveness of my formula, we have given out almost 300 free e-books since it was released on March 1 and orders are still coming in.

It's a wonderful little book full of true stories from authors and writers who are carving their way up the ladder to success. To them, I thank them for making this possible.

    You have put together some great stories from the authors - and let them say it with their own voice.

    Nice.

    Thank you for taking all this time to do this.
