Recommendation for Simply Creative Karen!!!
« on: June 11, 2013, 08:14:42 PM »
Hey! I would like to do a shout out about our own Simply Creative (Karen).  As some of you know, I am going through the process of epublishing a children's ebook on Kindle.  After dithering around for a while, I finally bit the bullet and set up my KDP Promo days. That is when everything seemed to go wrong.  So, yesterday afternoon I was sitting in my living room with a sinking feeling in my stomach realizing that I...just...was....not prepared! 
(The problem with having an IM background is that you "know" what you are supposed to do, unlike other new -and possibly luckier- Kindle authors. ) ;;:B
I decided to pm Karen.  :help:
We went onto Skype and I rambled, ranted and generally freaked about what I needed to do/should do/should have already done etc.  And then Karen started asking questions.  The right questions.  Then she went and bought the domain, set up the website, set up the graphics, auto responder, subscription page, download page etc.  By 11:00 pm I had the website, with my video, with my book cover (in 3D), and she even jerry rigged an obscure auto responder so that people could get the Bonus Audio (my giveaway for the e book).

Here is the site, less than 24 hours old :) http://www.henriettaandfriends.com/   Isn't it great!!?!
And please download a copy of Henrietta (yes, it is a true story, and she did terrorize the cat in that darned ball lol) http://www.amazon.com/Henrietta-Hamsters-Adventure-Childrens-ebook/dp/B00CSDX82Y and check out the audio I had made up, an Irish voice actor, it's pretty fun.  And any reviews would be nice, even if you aren't a verified purchaser lol

 So I guess what I am saying is THANK YOU KAREN!!   :wav:

I would really recommend Simply Creative for any of you who need an extra hand and don't want to let a fiverr stranger into your business, and I especially recommend her for new members who see all this great stuff in RRW but (like me) are a bit techneanderthal.  She can set you up with a site, done, complete, finito!  Today!

(And right after my nervous breakdown, I will be hiring her again for Ollie Otter!)


PS: Oh, and Bill, here is the link for the Kindle apps. I read my ebooks on my iphone, or computer :) Seriously, Kindles suck ! http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?ie=UTF8&docId=1000493771

Yes, I am trying to get her to advertize more on RRW especially for new people who don't know how to set up sites, funnels etc...plus I don't think anyone here knows how much people are making on fiverr (well, just from me lol)  so trying to convince her to try a fiverr gig or 2.   :::tu

And do Karen what the problem I heard that you put 48 hours in a day as you needed more time. But you know with that many hour you should be able to deal with it...  :music: ;C
