Bit of a milestone today.

Goa : A Lesson In Life has reached the 101 sales mark (ebooks + paperbacks).

I'm a debut author, on the Amazon KDP programme, and first published in January 2017.

I know it's only a modest figure, but for me its a huge achievement that I'm really proud of, I can't actually believe over 100 people have took time out (and paid money) to read my work! I'm forever grateful :)

Anyway, I hope this gives any other aspiring writers an idea of how long the process takes, I recognise I'm not in a hugely popular niche and the cover isn't great, but it's been a great learning process for the next release.

Good for you. I only visited Goa a few times when I lived in Bombay, but I miss it a lot. It has changed quite a bit, though.

It's been over the last decade or so. Over-development of commercial real estate coupled with a decline in international tourism, which used to fuel the economy.

It's been an ambition of mine to go back :(

Has it effected the Baja/Calangute/Anjuna areas, that's where I stayed.
