No matter what YOUR dreams are, don't let anyone tell you that you can't succeed. If you are self-publishing a book and you are not seeing the sales that you were hoping for, try not to dwell on low sales. Keep writing, keep writing, keep writing. And you MUST believe in yourself. As writers, there are too many factors that we have no control over as to whether our books will sell well, or not. Worrying about the ups and downs will only make you crazy. Just keep writing.

Don't be afraid to try new things. Stay positive.

YOU CAN DO IT!

Hi Theresa, your Lizzy Gardner series was recommended to me by my cousin but I can't find them in any format besides Kindle e-book. Problem is, I own a NOOK. What is the reason they are only available on Kindle? Or am I wrong and I'm not looking in the right spot for a print or Nook edition. I've checked my local library and B&N.com, Books A Million. No luck. Please help me find your books. I want to read them! Thanks
-Prospective new reader,
Sara

Thanks, Vanessa!

Hi Sara!

Thomas & Mercer has bought my Lizzy Gardner series which is why these books are now sold exclusively on kindle. But you can download a free app and read a kindle book on ANY ereader device!

You can actually get an App for PC or Mac that allows you to read a Kindle only book without actually using a physical Kindle device.

PC: http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?ie=UTF8&docId=1000426311

Mac: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/kindle/id405399194?mt=12

I hope this helps!

Theresa
