Hello, I hope you are well. I’m Angela and I am what experts would call an, “Amateur Blogger”. That’s fine. It’s true. I’ve been doing this since just 2015. Yes, I have changed my blog niche three times, the first 2 times it failed miserably. Keep reading to learn about Angela getting shot in Chicago. By the time you finish, you will meet Angela.
Why Do I Do This?
I’m here to help fellow Indie authors get their names out there by promoting their free Kindle book promotions.

Well, I am doing this because, unfortunately, I can no longer work outside the home. I have a few physical ailments along with PTSD stemming from when I was younger.
Frankly, I feel a lot safer at my home rather than anywhere else. Out there I always had a really strong work ethic. I am a strong leader and always excelled in what I did because it was something I enjoyed. Any profession I have worked in always taught me something very important during busy, “Put your Ace’s in their places”. I agree, always know your strengths and pivot there until the rush dies down. I was always busy and this change has really impacted me personally.
I’m really disappointed that I can no longer work outside the home. Therefore, I had to fill my time with something, as I have been in the workforce since the age of 16, I can sit home doing nothing. Therefore, I taught myself how to blog. I’ve learned a lot, but I am, in no means, what you would call a ‘success’. Nor am I turning a profit.
I was just too fickle because I was “feeling things out”. It took a lot of time, and prayer, to decide what I really want to do. I have also written two little books that have not done so well on Amazon. It takes a lot of time, and costs a great deal of money to compete with the well-funded, established authors who were worthy enough to get a publisher to sign them.
Writing a book, any book, was always on my bucket list. And since I have a family member who is on the Autism Spectrum, I used the many facial expressions of my dog and translated it into “Look At My Face:My Face Tell You How I Feel”.
Ironically, my son is the one who took most of the pictures. He is the one on the Autism Spectrum.
I’m pictured all the way on the right. This was my daughter’s wedding. It was a great fall-themed wedding. I post more pictures when I get a chance.
Also, I had to delegate a whole lot of people who were helping us setup. Combine that with an incomplete outfit and hot flashes, you will get what you see. 🙂
Lastly, as I have said earlier, I’m not turning a profit. To tell you the truth, I have found my niche. As an Indie author, I know the struggle you have to go through to get your work known. Since I network with a LOT of authors, I get wind of many, many new book promotions every single day. I post them for my readers.

Here We Go!
- What is your name? I’m Angela Santana.
- What is your birthdate? My birthdate is October 12. That is as far as I’ll go.
- Where do you live? I live about 2 minutes away from Chicago, Illinois. A city named Berwyn.
What else do you want to share?
I was shot in my leg. Back in 1992, some idiot had to shoot someone in order to initiate into a gang. I happened to be out a little later than I expected. As I was just a few doors away from my house when the shots pierced the quiet of that night. The first shot fired ricochet off the wall and got me right in my right ear. It surprised me because I thought I was dead. However, by the time the sixth bullet was shot, I was hit in my lower leg.
Yeah, I got better, but this had altered the course of my life. You see, during any time I had alone I would take any money I can find and call a recruiter to see if I could join the military. I’ve always been interested in medicine. I figured I’d join the military, serve my time, earn my GI Bill and go to college and see how nursing would be. But seeing as I was shot in my leg, I had to put those plans away and go for my plan B. I was absolutely broken by this and do not speak of this often.

5. Why are you doing this?
Well, as you can see from my story at question 4, and a couple other events, I have developed a small thing called PTSD. I also have Fibromyalgia. With all my conditions, I can no longer work outside the home. However, I can’t just sit here doing nothing. I need to fill my time, so I blog. The last question is pretty interesting.
6. How much money can you make as a blogger?
For starters, I have invested a decent amount of money in my blog. However, I’ve yet to see any kind of ROI (Return on Investment) from doing this. Since I have not turned a profit, my funding source has dried up. Looks like I’ll probably just open up an amateur blog and continue on. Digging on Amazon is a hobby to me. I figured there were others like me who like free Kindle books. I guess this niche isn’t for everyone.
That’s it for the simple questions. It’s time to get to the “meat and potatoes” part of this About Me page.
- You won a million dollars. What now? I’d pay off all bills, sell my house and move to Ohio to be with my daughter and son-in-law. Yes, I’d invest the rest for future generations.
- What would your superpower be? To teleport!
- How will your blog benefit me? I find a lot of free Kindle books and it is my pleasure to post them here. I benefit you because I do all the research and find the best deals for you. Yo Santana! can save you some big money for great gifts.
That is it for time being. I am working on getting more questions and answers for you. Just know, I am just what you would call a “procuring cause”. That means that I was the source from where you get your item from. Yes, I do make a tiny commission for any completed sale. No, I do not have any access to your information or payment data. You work directly with Amazon, your information is always safe on Amazon.
REMINDERS: The free book promotion reserves the right to end at any time. So, please remember to do the following: Double-check the price to make sure the book is still free, make sure you download the books right away. Lastly, send your friends and family to Yo Santana for these freebies.
DISCLOSURE: I am NOT responsible for any quality issues with any Kindle e-book you download. If there are any problems, please contact Amazon.com for more information.
LASTLY: The books posted here DO NOT reflect the values and beliefs of Yo Santana! While we post books that may be contrary to the court of public opinion, the need to inform the populace is more important by stating different opinions and letting the readers decide.
