  Dorothy Thompson's Success Story
As you know, my book, ROMANCING THE SOUL, is doing real well in print, and because of this, I got this wonderful brainstorm of creating an ebook explaining the soul mate phenomenon--from my viewpoint of course--but more in depth.

I had never done this before and I said to myself, "If it sells, it sells," and went on to other businesses at hand.

Yesterday was Promo Day in my new group, TWL Author Talks, and I decided what the heck, I'll go on and send a promo through about my new ebook.

I garnished FIVE sales from just that one blatant promotion. That's more than an average booksigning!

So, I thought, wait a minute. Do I have something here?

I believe I do. E-books are one of the hardest things to sell to customers who prefer print books, but there are some that are doing really well. They are those that show how to create a better life for themselves and who wouldn't want to know how to find a keep your soul mate?

Sounds real good, but just because five people bought my e-book, does that mean that it's any good? Just because I say it is?

I asked my buyers what they thought of the book and could they give me some feedback to see if it was on to something. I didn't want to promote something that wasn't worth reading, even though I knew in my heart that it was. After all the research I have done on soul mates, plus my personal experiences with my own soul mate background, I felt that I had really gotten across the true meaning of soul mates in this e-book, but I wanted confirmation...from readers and authors in the industry.

Roxanne St. Claire, author of HIT REPLY, emailed me today and I have to say this was one of the best endorsements I could ask for. She says, "I was so intrigued by your ebook that I just stopped everything today and read it. Wonderful! I loved the concept and especially the last two chapters about keeping your soul mate. I am married to my companion soul mate, I have no doubt. And I have a few karmic soul mate girlfriends who have come into my life -- one in particular who is so close to me that it is truly like having a sister. I enjoyed your examples, your brisk writing style and your overall "voice" which was informative without being preachy. Well done! Thank you so much for sharing. You should submit that to magazines! Maybe Redbook would do a three part series on soul mates! It was very well done -- thank you so much for sharing!"

That was just what the doctor ordered. It has encouraged me to keep on with this and see just how far I can make my little ol' ebook go.

I truly feel that price, though, and the fact that buyers can use Paypal to buy the e-book also helped. At $4.99, it's at a price that people can afford and they have all used Paypal. I also accept checks and money orders, but Paypal is fast, convenient, secure and, personally, I prefer using it to pay for online purchases.

So far, everything has been falling in place and I couldn't be happier.
