It's only been a month since I began formatting "Missing Maggie" to be accepted by Smashwords (another site that helps self-published authors gain a wider audience), and it was finally approved yesterday. Within the next two weeks, Smashwords will electronically distribute my book to Sony, Kobo, Apple, and Diesel. This means more exposure. Time will only tell if my sales increase. Either way, I'm learning so much now that when it comes time to publish my next book, it will take weeks instead of months.
On another note, I want to thank all of my family and friends for being so supportive. Your marketing tactics are much appreciated.
