Congratulation Abigail - 3000 sold? What's the title of your book? Mine - Breaking Down Walls: Traits of a Survivor is a page turner, so I have been told by many, but no one knows it's out there. What did you do to get the word out for people to buy your book? Breaking Down Walls

This is the story of my family's flight from the Russian Revolution across the later Stan Nations of central Asia to homes in Manchuria and then Japan. We lived in Tokyo through WWII, then through the Soviet fall. Many then went on to America and some to Turkey. They had been Tatar or Turkish Moslem business traders in a sea of Russian Slavs and considered themselves remnants of the Tatar-Mongol conquests. The travels during our diaspora placed many of us near some of history's most momentous events and locations. Russian history from the Revolution through WWII and to the downfall is covered in some detail. Chinese, German and Japanese history of WWII through the 20th century is likewise covered. This is my family saga across the anti-podal easterly flow of twentieth century history. Please try Amazon 'Diaspora to the Sun'.

When I go into, put in the title of my book - it brings up the title page and when I scroll down it tells me which place my book is on the bestseller list - 2 million + and I know from the royalty checks that it's not selling. Don't know how to get the word out that it exist?

This sounds very interesting - I'll look into, when did you publish it?

Unveiled Emotions by K. O. Samuels is a brand new book with a new slant on memoirs.
I personally loved the book and learned how important it is to tune into my inner guidance system.
It's definitely made a difference in the way I operate on a daily basis.

Can you share with me your marketing strategy? I recently published my memoir and have no clue where to begin with marketing. Thanks chris:

Hi Elke,
This was a good place to tell us the name of your book. Every time you write something or somewhere use the title of your book. Do you have a blog, a face page, a twitter account? You have to promote it yourself. This is my book for sale on Kindle. You can do the same.

Backwards Through the Looking Glass by Alveg Spaug. Funny, witty, sarcastic and sanely politically incorrect. thoroughly enjoed it. Just brilliant

Unintended Consequences - Lessons from a Life Almost Lost
One of my favorite memoirs is Bill Shaner's "Unintended Consequences Lessons from a Life Almost Lost". It's part memoir and part tale of the spiritual lessons learned after a tragic accident that resulted in a near death experience and temporarily left a 31 year old man a paraplegic. Bill takes you through the harrowing ordeal and its aftermath, showing how even seemingly devastating events can ultimately yield invaluable blessings if you persevere and maintain your faith.

Your memoir must be great to sell so many. Besides good material, do you have any tips for fellow memoir writers. My title is Dreams of America, on Kindle.

I see that Elke Hawthorne also asked about your marketing techniques. Thanks in advance.

Thank you all for your insights and suggestions. I've learned a lot in this, my first effort in publishing. I'm the author of "Newlywed Widow".
Please feel free to take a look.
All the best, Beverly Short

re Abuse-check out Angela Shelton

With everything in the news today about child molesters, the Jerry Sandusky trial and the ongoing scandals within the Catholic Church, I've recently gotten a book published that you might find very topical. It will help anyone who's interested to understand how this kind of thing continues to happen. It will also give you insight into the affect this type of abuse has on someone that young. It's called "Unraveling Charlie"
If you are interested please go to my website where you can read some sample chapters.

Well done to you. I wont read it, as the reviews says it is rather graphic and as a survivor myself, I fear I would be triggered. I know I struggled to not get so graphic when I put my own memoir out. But kudos to you.

Journeys of the Heart I recently published my own childhood memoir which focuses on child abuse in my life and the obstacles I have overcome to get to this point today in my life. I wanted to share my story and let others know it truly isn't their fault. In my book I talk about my earliest memories of my grandma, child abuse, the death of my father and so on. It truly has been a great healing process! I hope you will check it out!
