Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
I cannot put my gratitude into words in order to express how thankful I am for all of the support I've received for my book!
So many friends and family members have shared my book on social media since yesterday morning, and the kind words that I've seen have been very touching to read. When I woke up this morning, four copies of the book had been sold. Tonight, sales have more than doubled. I have more book likes than I do likes on my author page (how did that happen? ha ha), and I am overwhelmed by the positive response I've received since putting the book up for sale.
Yesterday, I was under the impression that it would take three to five days before my book went live on the main Amazon website. Today, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that Amazon works much more quickly than I anticipated, and my book is already available for sale directly on Amazon! In fact, if you go to the Amazon website and search for my name, you'll be able to find the book!
I also created an author page on Amazon, which is linked to the book page, and I'm working on setting up an author account on some other platforms as well. I'm also looking into different ways to advertise "A Christmas For Toys," but I can definitely use all of the help I can get from family, friends, and readers of Taylor Talks. With the book page on Amazon, which you can get to by clicking on the image above, there's actually an option to share the book on many different social media platforms, so it's very easy to share.
I've actually created a Books tab right here on Taylor Talks as well, which is a page that will direct you to the Amazon page for "A Christmas For Toys," as well as any books that I publish in the future. I'm excited for the day that I have a whole list of books on that page!
Celebrating the successful launch of "A Christmas For Toys" has inspired me to focus on my novel once more, which I've been neglecting over the past few weeks. I was able to write a few more paragraphs tonight, and I'm looking forward to focusing on accomplishing more of the novel over the coming weeks.
Thank you so much for your continued support! I look forward to sharing more stories about my experience with foster care, and hopefully hearing from readers who have questions or similar stories to share. I'm always willing to answer questions and hear about other experiences! Please don't forget to like and share my Facebook author page as well!
I’d greatly appreciate it if you would share this blog with friends and family through your favorite social media sites. If you’re sharing on Twitter, don’t forget to tag me (@TayTayK02) and use the hashtag #TaylorTalks.
My family has been doing foster care since I was three years old. I'm the only biological child in my family, though I now have five permanent siblings. Having nineteen siblings over the course of my lifetime has been an incredible experience, and I'm hoping that by sharing some of the ups and downs of being the only bio kid in a foster family, other foster families or people looking into doing foster care will be able to learn a bit of what life can be like. I also like to share what life is like on my journey to becoming a published author, as well as where my schooling and career choice are taking me.
