One step at a time

It’s true that writing a book and seeing it through to fruition is not an easy task, especially if, like me, you have to figure things out as you go.
After my book finally made it to the Smashwords premium catalog and the Amazon kindle edition, I realized that I still needed to get a Goodreads author page and an Amazon profile.
So, naturally, I applied for both.
Naturally, I did it wrong.
So I applied again (for Goodreads), and again, no one replied. And then a couple days ago I realized that my Goodreads account, well, it was set on a different e-mail. So I hurried to check it, and YEAH! There was a message from Goodreads congratulating me for becoming an author. The message was five days old.
So, trials and errors and memory failure aside, I’m here to share with you guys good news.
Check it out:

And, I know there is nothing perfect in life, so I’d appreciate if you could take a look and let me know if it looks alright and if there is something I could do to add/delete and improve my profile.
For my Amazon profile, I have yet to follow up on that, but the moment it’s up, I’ll be coming back to share the good news.

      1. Yes, I’m so sorry I haven’t been seeing anyone’s comments until now. Suze from Obsolete Childhood helped me figure out the code I needed.

        we have 0 books in common.
        guess you don’t read fantasy or romantic suspense.
        Or. Grisham. or horror. Or thrillers.
        Hmmm. maybe i should take the time to revisit my old books and start rating them.

      2. i really need to sit and start checking them out. the problem is i’ve been reading for a very very long time. How can i rate something i know i enjoyed but can’t remember how much, or don’t think it’s so great anymore?

      3. True, we all have that problem. I can’t remember all the books I’ve read, and I’m sure most people can’t. Nor have I time to work through huge, long lists of books to find them.

    1. Ha ha ha!
      I love garlic the same.
      My older brother felt embarrassed of me when i made myself a sandwich of garlic and olive oil and went to eat it beside his friend. I was around seven or eight (we were talking about it a few months back).
      If i mention the onions, I suppose I should mention the garlic as well.

  1. Namaste Jina 🙂

    Perhaps I was prompted and not at all pushed to view your book at Goodreads, but I went along and read your song and delighted in the summary. Firstly congratulations and sincere best wishes for the books success, and secondly, I hope you are left suitably inspired to go-on and write many more.

    Congratulations Jina 🙂

    Hoping all is well wherever you may be. Take care of one and all as you always do.

    Love and be Loved. Namaste 🙂

    1. Thanks, Dewin (i hope i spelled it right this time). I understand and don’t worry. Blogging is time consuming and we all have lives outside this cyber community.
      I appreciate you taking the time to check the book out.
      And i also appreciate the good wishes.
      Thank you.

        I am proud of your achievement and my congratulations is sincere. Thank you for understanding we have lives beyond the virtual space but friendship that happens by chance or good fortune shouldn’t be neglected.

        So yes indeed good luck and continued success in Love, Life and writing 🙂

        Namaste 🙂
