Amazon and Book Sales

First Amazon pulled all forum threads that allowed authors to promote their work, now they've removed the tags that helped people find a book. There is now one specific area for authors...kinda confused because they have a vested interest in our sales, but what they're doing is hurting everyone.  My sales were steady, but I haven't sold a book in two days now.  Maybe they're planning something even better for us, but right now it doesn't look that way.  Go figure.

Oh by the way, I am waiting for my first proof of Zombified to arrive any day!  I am super excited to hold my book in my hands!  Woot!!!  As soon as I am selling the paperbacks I plan to contact our local Hastings to see if they will purchase some of my books, they're pretty good about helping out local talent.

Short Story I Wrote...

Hello everyone!  Been busy battling with CreateSpace's criteria for a book cover so I can make paperback copies of my novel.  I think I just about have it figured out though - yay!  Anyway, I still write for Associated Content on Yahoo! and they actually posted an assignment to write a zombie short story for Zombie Awareness Month.  I'd say since I just wrote a zombie novel, that's right up my alley.  I wrote the story in about an hour and posted it the next day.  Was a lot of fun to do, here's the link if you'd like to read it:  http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/8062265/theres_no_such_things_as_zombies.html?cat=44

Should have the book cover done at least by the weekend, will post then on how it's going. :D
