Hey all!

Hope everyone is having an awesome day!

I haven't posted in a while, which I feel terrible about, however, it's not because I'm living scripted, quite the opposite...

Since my last post, as well as setting up 2 new co's, I have self published, and bootstrapped my first ever book! In the first week it's sold 200 copies and managed to get a good few 5* reviews! It's also creeping up Amazon's 'Hot New Reads' list on the UK marketplace falling short to some Mrs Finch or Hinch or Kinch or something?! :p It's #3 at the time of writing this.

Don't worry, this ain't a sales pitch. I wanted to see if anyone on here would be happy for me to send them a free digital download. There's no catch, just I've had so much inspiration from this forum I'd love to give something back, and my book is seeming to help a bunch of people, so I figured you lovely lot might be up for checking it out...

It's a complete no BS guide to motivation, and I promise it's not another bro-marketing, self absorbed, d-bag fest. I used the techniques I explain in the book to quit a long term drug addiction, amongst other things, but these techniques apply to pretty much anything.

I also run a non-profit young entrepreneurs club for 16-21 year olds, and they have assured me the book is helpful for their age bracket too.

If you fancy a read, and to give me some honest feedback, please feel free to email me at lee@leebridges.co.uk or send a DM on my Instagram (@drum_hacker or @_lee_bridges) and I'll send you a copy.

You can check it here too if you're interested:

Super appreciate your time reading,

All the best,

Lee

Is Amazon showing/telling you that the book is 3rd on the 'Hot New Releases' list?

I've had a look through and I'm unable to find your title.

Hey Lee,

Congrats on the launch of your book! Can I ask, are you self publishing through Amazon and they are printing the books on demand?

Yes, they must have a very odd ranking system. My last book was on a very specific and niche subject in Aviation Law. My wife decided to publish it on Amazon, just to make sure the copyright date could be proven since the University publisher was taking very long to come up with the ISBN code. The only danger was any other scholar addressing the subject since believe me, it is not a very popular one.

First week she published it, ranked 6th in Law Books and 3rd in Law in Spanish. With 1 sale, just a few pages read in kindle unlimited and no reviews at all.

Something is odd there, but I took a screen shot when it started to go down naturally so I could brag with my nerdy friends.

If you are allowed the link I just want to advise that it is incorrect.

This is it.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/TRANSITION/?tag=

Good luck with it in the wider context.

Dan

PS: Strange. It does not work from this forum. Maybe because it is Amazon UK, what do I know?

Thanks so much Dan, link changed! No idea why the original one didn't work, as seems fine everywhere else?!

Hope all is awesome at your end!

Thanks so much mate! Means a lot!

Indeed that is the case, was attractive as saves loads of unnecessary printing.
Hope all is awesome at your end :)
