Hear What Our Authors are Saying…
“I have loved to write all of my life, and it was always my dream to see a book of mine in publication. But, while I loved the writing, I hadn’t the foggiest notion of how to go about getting an agent and everything else involved in traditional publishing. As a first time author, I was certain it would be a waste of time submitting manuscripts, and having them rejected. However, I continued to write for my own pleasure. Then what I consider a miracle took place!
I bought the book the Kindle Publishing Bible by Tom-Corson-Knowles, and read everything I could get my hands on about Kindle publishing. I am not the least bit ‘techie” and knew if I tried publishing on my own, it would look dreadful. So, I wrote to Tom Corson-Knowles, and was delighted when he called me. We chatted for about an hour, and he sent me a publishing contract. The book I had on my computer had been written over a period of thirty years – long overdue to be published. It was close to nine hundred pages in length. So, I split it into three books, and we had a trilogy. Of course that required some changes, and a lot of editing work, but it all came together rather nicely.
This has truly been the fulfillment of a lifelong dream. My Psychology professor during my first year at college, asked me to collaborate with him on an Adolescent Psychology text book, but I was too unsure of my capabilities, and turned him down. Other wonderful writing possibilities presented themselves through the years, but I had no faith in myself. I couldn’t bear the thought of piles of rejection letters.
After talking to Tom, I really began to believe that I could do this. I should add that I am a seventy-one year old first time novelist! My experience is certainly living proof that one is never too old to accomplish their dreams. When my first book, Willow Grove Abbey, was published on Kindle it was an immediate success, and became a best seller very quickly. It is a historical romance novel, set in England during World War II. This book was quickly followed by the second book in the trilogy – St. James Road, which also became a best seller before it had been on Amazon for a few hours. Today it is number twelve in its genre. The third book in the trilogy, Serendipity, also reached best seller status immediately. It is now number six in its genre. I am earning over a thousand dollars a month. I have a new historical romance trilogy underway entitled Claybourne Court. This too will be set in England, in World Wars I and II, and I hope to see the success I had with my first trilogy repeated.
I have learned an enormous amount, now that I am truly a bestselling author. First and foremost, unless you have a Master’s Degree in English Literature, do not try to edit your book yourself. You will be sorry! I hold a Doctorate Degree in Psychology, but my editing skills left much to be desired. So, the best advice I can give is to hire an excellent editor. Tom has great editors available through TCK Publishing and they are superb. My experience has been marvelous, and finally, at age seventy-one, I am doing what I was always meant to do.
TCK Publishing takes care of all of the formatting for me, and even assists in the cover design choice. I trust TCK Publishing to do great work. Tom’s ideas are terrific. His marketing skills are beyond compare, and I believe that makes all the difference in sales. He knows exactly when to take advantage of the promotions that KDP Select offers to its writers, and these promotions send sales skyrocketing. Getting in touch with Tom, and learning about Kindle are two of the best things I have ever done in my life. I hope to be writing and publishing books with TCK Publishing until I simply can’t write anymore!“
