Night’s Treasure on Amazon NOW!

nights-treasure-4Night’s Treasure is now available on Amazon as an e-book for the Kindle and Kindle app. It came out on December 1st, 2016 and I couldn’t be happier! Well, I could. I could if everyone in the world was buying it, but that’s never going to happen. Not even Agatha Christie or the Bible has been bought by every single person in the world.

I don’t know if I’d want that kind of success anyway though. Imagine how many haters there’d be out there because of course not everyone likes the same things. I don’t think I could take that kind of negativity. Or popularity for that matter.

Anyway, December 1st I woke up all excited to check out Amazon and see my book on display to be bought. That is, until I found out our internet was down.

After a couple failed attempts, I fixed it! For those out there wondering how to do so: I turned off the box, then unplugged it from the other box it was connected to (I’m so detailed and knowledgeable), counted to 10, then plugged it back in and switched the box back on. VOILA! Magic.

So with my new Ms Fix-It status securely in my ego, I proceeded to get on Amazon and revel in the glory of having a book published. A minute later I had the bright idea to take a screenshot and post it on FB. My first guessed attempt failed.

Problem: I had no idea how to do that anymore. I learned in high school but it’s been well over a decade since then so I’ve forgotten.

Solution: Google it!

Directions immediately came up. And they were so easy! So I tried. Failed again. Then I saw that laptop users needed to press another button. Oh. Feeling like my Ms Fix-It status was getting tarnished, I tried again. WOOHOO! Success!

So I went to FB and uploaded the picture there. Huh. I peered at it – it looked kind of weird. Where was my e-book cover? I clicked it for a closer look.

I took a screenshot of the directions for how to take a screenshot.

OMG! What’s wrong with me???!!! In mild shame and deep stupidity, I took another screenshot of my book’s Amazon page and uploaded it onto FB. Everything was great and 100% perfect so I once more esteemed myself and lauded in my brilliance!

Yeah, I was on Cloud 9 yesterday and had a great time all day. I was gushing on the phone to my dad after those technical wonders and caught myself giving a Queen wave at the walls. Seriously!

I was talking on the phone and telling my dad how I had figured out tech stuff that kids are now born knowing and my hand went straight up in the air and did a Queen wave at the walls! When I realized what I was doing, I burst out laughing and of course told my dad who laughed at me too. When I did it again, I announced it and he joined in. Queen waves to all walls everywhere!

About Katie St. John-Shin

I believe in living life and not letting it pass you by. I mean, come on, if you really want to do something but don't have the courage to do it so you let the opportunity disappear, you may regret it for the rest of your life. How can you know what you're capable of unless you go for it? Like every writer, I naturally plan on becoming a world-famous writer. I love reading, writing, fitness, coffee, watching my favorite movies/shows, listening to music, and trying new things even if they're sometimes terrifying. I'm a stay-at-home mom, a writer, and a POP Pilates instructor. I didn't think I'd succeed at that last one but I did it! I confronted my fears, dealt with things I didn't want to deal with, and completed the training! POP Pilates classes are coming soon to mid-Nebraska!
