Record-Breaking Downloads of Herbs Gone Wild sends Author into State of Shock

Author of the bestselling Kindle book, "Herbs Gone Wild! Ancient Remedies Turned Loose" was reported to have fallen onto the floor in an unexplicable stupor after her ebook hit the #7 Free Kindle Book spot on Amazon. Family members say they found her there, gazing into space and repeating what sounded something like, "It can't be possible. I just wrote it last year."

A similar reaction has been reported by other indie authors who decide that, instead of submitting their work to countless traditional publishers, then waiting a year or more to even make it into print, they will tap into a pioneer spirit and do it all themselves.

For Kidman, this is already meaning real results. Her first ebook, the aforementioned "Herbs Gone Wild", hit Amazon last August and has now made its way to the (also aforementioned) #7 Free Kindle Book spot on Amazon.

(Oh, dear. I think our author just fell down again.)

Rumor has it "Herbs Gone Wild! Ancient Remedies Turned Loose" will remain free for all until July 26, 2012, despite the fact that over 17,000 people have already taken part in obtaining their free copy. The author is said to be a bit shaken, but she's sipping ice water and repeating the mantra, "How do I thank them? Will an ecard ever be enough?"
