Kindle Books you should write as an indie author

I have to admit something to you.  I can't hide it anymore.

I do have a couple of fiction books out in the thriller genre and they sell.  I make money from them but (are you reading carefully?)  not nearly as much as I make in another genre under a different name.

There I've said it.  Wish I'd done it sooner.
So the big question that I keep asking myself is - "Am I a failure in the thriller genre if my other books keep selling so well."
I will tell you my answer.  It's.....I don't know.  
That is I really haven't decided that yet.  I LOVE writing fiction thrillers. In fact I can sit down at my laptop and before I know it I have 3000 words done and more that needs to come.  Doing a book in the other genre I struggle sometimes to even start.
I'm just not that into it.  But it sells so I do it.  It's my job, what feeds me....to a degree and actually I have leant all about self publishing and being an indie author because of these books.
And this …

Why you should write and distribute a press release for your self published books

One reason - To promote and get more sales!

I know this seems like common sense but so many self published authors don't bother to do something as simple as this.  Come on guys!

Ok ok, I have to admit I didn't always do press releases for my books.  I frankly couldn't be bothered.  But once I did I know I always will until I make enough money to pay someone to do it!

Do they always work?  Well I guess honestly I don't know.  I don't know how many sales they make and I don't know how effective they really are but publishers do them for their authors so why shouldn't self published authors?

Here is one I have just released.  I used PRWeb.com which does cost money but you can send to lots of free ones.  Free ones are listed here. http://mashable.com/2007/10/20/press-releases/
