We just keep trying

It is no easier to promote sales of e-books than it was 4 years ago.  Personally I still like to browse bookshops, charity shops, flea markets and libraries for books I want to read and only go to e-books when I know what I want. I heard someone recently saying that the internet is a good place to get books you know you want but bookshops etc are the best places to get books you didn't know you wanted.

My first published book is 'Now Just Listen' published by Mirador in the UK and available as a download for Amazon's Kindle. It's a humorous account (partly fictionalised) of my 3 years at a teacher training college in the 1960s. I had left an all boys grammar school with very little knowledge or understanding of girls and entered a world where the girls outnumbered the boys by at least 4 to 1, maybe more! In 3 years I learnt more than most of my contemporaries did in a lot longer. I also…
