Painting ©2018 John Clark III
... days of school left, that is.
Today was not a great day. It should have been a great day. Release of my book, free giveaway promotion, publishers excited about it. But I was too damn keyed up, nervous about what was going to happen. I really didn't expect a whole lot, but people who know what they're doing were telling me they had high hopes. So, I was thinking, maybe ...
By around 11 or so this morning, there were 44 free downloads reported from amazon.com. Not too good. I don't know what the latest numbers are, six or seven hours later, but it's pretty much been a bust.
Not a complete disaster, though. And it ain't over yet. There are four more days left in the free promotion, and there are other things in the works. These guys don't give up that easily. This was just the first attempt, they tell me, and they've sold a lot of books.
Ciao, y'all ...
A few reviews of John's books
The 30-Day Optimism Solution:
“Part memoir, part informative text. You get both when reading 'Depression Blues' by John H. Clark III. Mr. Clark shares his struggles with depression in an honest and real way, and as the book progresses, so does his hope. Woven into the story as jumping off points are bits of information about depression and ways to "conquer" the sadness, loneliness, and despair that comes with it.
Mr. Clark becomes more than an author in this book; he becomes a friend who understands the pain of depression and provides light. I recommend this book to anyone looking for light or to anyone who knows someone with depression and wants to learn more.”
