The Corner Cafe: A Tasty Collection of Short Stories is riding high in sales, after a spectacular performance at its first freebie weekend on June 9 and June 10, 2012.
The book is ready, but the work's not over. Dani Greer, owner of The Blood-Red Pencil, along with Morgan Mandel, Helen Ginger, Maryann Miller, Shonell Bacon, and Audrey Lintner, all contributors to the collection and members of The Blood-Red Pencil, are sharing our ongoing experiences with you about the project in this series. Perhaps, what we've discovered will aid you in your own endeavors.

Here's what she has to say:
What surprised you about this endeavor?
What surprised me most, despite the fact that I was getting manuscripts from 14 different computers, was how relatively easy it was to publish a book on KDP.
What seemed the most difficult?
Most difficult was trying to get all the authors on the BBT Cafe group involved and helping with promotion.
What proved the most satisfying?
I discovered that Amazon is surprisingly efficient, responsive, and easy to work with. That was a huge surprise.
What did you learn?
I've also discovered the power of an intense group effort and plan to change how the BBT Cafe group works. Authors who are not involved will free up their seats for authors who are interested in joining our concentrated group efforts to promote each other.
Would you do it again?
I'm already in the process of doing it again with another title!
Thanks, Dani, for sharing with us.
