"Only The Lonely" free on Amazon Monday Jan. 8

My self-published novel "Only The Lonely" is free on Amazon on January 8; one day only.

I haven't been offering the novel for free because it has a formatting problem with paragraph indentations. I've wanted to fix the problem, but my attempts failed. But when I read it, especially on the Kindle Fire (I love the back lighting), it looks good enough to read.

My short-story collection "Battles and other stories" will be free on Amazon on January 15; one day only.

I hope someone reads them and gives me feedback, especially a review on Amazon and Goodreads.

I hope to add a book or two this year. We'll see what happens.

Hi Patrick,

Have you considered posting the first chapter on wattpad? It's site designed for authors to build a network/get feedback/ and meet other authors.

It gets over a million hits a day.

Good luck with sales.

I read Only the Lonely and enjoyed it very much and reviewed it, and I'm glad to see you'll be publishing more books. Good luck with sales.

Hi, Bethany, I've never heard of wattpad but I have now, so I'll see what I can do with it. Thank you.

Elizabeth, Thanks for the comment. I know you read it. Have fun in Spain.

Hey, free is good. :)

Haven't tackled the formatting of self-publishing yet, but it may be in my future. I'll probably need a weeklong tutorial to figure it out.

Hi Richard, I will download both the books. Have a lovely weekend.

Unfortunately I don't have much advice to give since I've never published anything. But I do like Bethany's suggestion, it might be a good way to get feedback.
