Wow! I was astonished to discover just now that this post was going to be number 100. Quite a landmark! And co-incidentally, I reached 100 copies downloaded of The Witch’s Dog this afternoon too. I’m very pleased about that, and even more so about the 617 downloads of Oh Gran! I’d be even more delighted if I was getting money for them, but I’m convinced that giving away free books now will be a good move for the future. And quite simply it’s nice to have people reading what I’ve written.
Since Books Are Cool got started, I’ve had visitors from 70 countries. I think that’s awesome! How wonderful to have people from Azerbaijan, Chile, Myanmar, Nepal, Barbados and Lithuania visiting my site – and from all the other 64 countries too. Most of my visitors are from the USA and the UK. Thank you for visiting.
I started out with only a very vague idea of what direction this site would go in. It was partly intended as a showcase for my books and ebooks, but also to look at ebook and publishing issues. However, there are a lot of excellent sites that already do that so I’m still looking for a niche to fit into. That said, posts that I’ve talked about epublishers and discussions of well known things such as Twitter and the Kindle Million Club have done well, as have writing advice posts. You’re not so keen on Sunday Sample pages or certain book reviews.
Plenty to think about there.It looks like you want fewer reviews and samples and more informative or art of writing articles. I’ll see what I can do. I’d like to get some guests posts on this site, and perhaps interviews with authors and publishers too.
And while I’ve been writing this, 3 more Oh Grans have been downloaded!
