Congratulations Kate, it has been an honor and a joy to get to know you here, and to watch your growing success. You are proof that it is entirely possible for an unknown author who writes good books and works hard at marketing them to become successful here. You are an inspiration.

thanks everyone!

@Nick - you sir, are the inspiration.

@Traci - quote away! I was rather pleased with the analogy myself

@Saxon - I couldn't have done it without you keeping me sane

@The Noids - I did it despite you -- so ha!

@everyone I've missed - sorry & thanks! it's been a great year and I've had a ball talking to you all and sharing your successes

@Amazon - why the hell have you picked today of all days to finally price match in the Uk a book that's been free on every other domain since October? it's most damn rude of you, because I was about to stop the price match!!

Happy Anniversary! Your energy and achievement in just a year are amazing, and yet you still take time to help whenever someone asks. You're an inspiration.

Very cool... and many kudos!

Today, June 26th, is also an anniversary for me... as on June 26th, 1995, I made the decision to leave my engineering career to become an author, musician, and an artist. It's a leap of faith... a belief in oneself... and now having 20 eBooks published via Amazon's KDP, I share your enthusiasm and elation.

The one thing I noticed is that Kindle ePublishing provides an inner confidence of having a legitimate product "out there"... and confidence, hope, and belief aren't things that can be measured with scientific instruments... but people just know when you exude them in ample abundance.

So let this one year anniversary boost that positive energy you emote.

People will pick up on it... and be that inspiration for others.

As they say, you draw more flies with honey than vinegar.

So keep it up, congrats... and continue to do it to it!

If you say "you can and you will"... you're right.

If you say you can't... you're right again.

Be that beacon of hope for others.

Blessings,
Brian Shell

They absolutely are, and I would still be floundering if it wasn't for them. There is always someone here who knows something more or something different, and they're always worth listening to.
