I want to thank the readers of LiP! Because of you guys, I achieved something this week that made me quite happy! You were part of that achievement, without you it would not have happened!
I was looking on Amazon the other day, at my new book, How to Move to the Philippines Manual, and I saw a little something there that surprised me! There was a little orange box that said “#1 New Release” and next to the orange box it said “In Philippines Travel Guides”. Wow, my new book is currently the #1 best selling new release in its category! And that is just for the paperback sales on Amazon! The book is also doing quite well on my website, for the electronic version.
Writing books is something that I enjoy doing, and it helps this website we worthwhile in terms of earning some income from the work involved. But, it is rewarding in other non-financial ways too. There are a few specific times when you get a really great feeling. Firstly it happens when you finish the book and submit it for publication. It is a feeling of real fulfillment. Second, when the book actually goes up for sale, and also, of course, every time you get paid for your royalties. All in all, I have always found writing books to be a very good and fulfilling experience.
I got my first book published in 1992 by a company called “Artsci” in California. That book was called the “Repeater Mapbook”. I went on, in the early 90s to write about 20 other books which were published by Artsci and then by the American Radio Relay League. I then took a short break from writing books while I concentrated on getting started with publishing on the Internet. A couple of years after moving to the Philippines, I decided to get back into writing books, but this time I went totally independent with self publishing, and releasing the books in electronic format. It was just in the past 30 days or so that I have gone back to releasing my books in paperback, in addition to the electronic format. It is a great feeling to be back on paper, and especially when you see that you hav e the #1 best selling new release in your category! I was really happy when I saw that.
So, I really just wanted to thank all of you who purchased the book. I hope that the information you find in the book is helpful to you, as I intended it to be!
