Let's Write!

Sunday, March 29, 2020

The more I use Grammarly, the more I begin to instinctively write better. Comma usage has been the death of me all of my life. I've begun to learn to control that. As I've explained, most times when I am working on a story, my fingers and my brain part company for a few hours, and when they meet... Sign in to see full entry.

The Audible stuff is coming along nicely right about now. I finally got a story taken down that was given to someone who seems to have just disappeared. I liked the woman's voice, but she last contacted me back in November, saying that she was ill, and now I can't raise her on ACX or via email.... Sign in to see full entry.

I got this in an email as I was working on a few other things. I post it mainly to show the many ways Amazon is beginning to help authors, new and established. Kindle Direct Publishing kdp-no-reply@amazon.com > 9:21 AM (20 minutes ago) to me Congratulations, your paperback, "Things My Father Taught... Sign in to see full entry.

LOL. Let no small favor go unpunished! I posted that I was helping one man get his paperback story done into an e-book and on its way to being an Audible book. It seems he told three of his friends as I have gotten emails from all of them asking me to guide them through the process. I assure that... Sign in to see full entry.

Me? Doing Erotica? Please...

I was sitting here, minding my own business, when I got an email from ACX/Audible. I get a lot of crap from them, but the last thing I expected to read from them was what they were asking/proposing to me this time. It seems ACX/Audible is willing to 'pay me' to write an erotica novella. The offer... Sign in to see full entry.

ACX/Audible Rules and Lessons

Someone asked me about the software needed to do narration for ACX/Audible and its price. The actual software is free over on Audacity. ACX/Audible recommends this particular microphone set. Reverb.com has the same thing minus the stand for $250, but so does Amazon, so it isn't like it's cheaper one... Sign in to see full entry.

Self Publishing & Audio Books

Bookbub has a new pdf out that might be worth your time to download. (HERE) One of the things that I've told people a number of times is listed in the material. Self-publishing a book for the first time doesn’t mean the author is new to writing. But if this is your first book, start Book 2 and don’t... Sign in to see full entry.

In a story I'm working on, I'm toying with this phrase. There are several different ways to twist this. I'm still thinking on it. illusions of grandeur or grandeur of illusions? Sign in to see full entry.

Playing The Part

I went to the local library yesterday in the late morning for what was to be a one hour meeting. By the time everyone left, it was well after 2PM in afternoon. The last time, there were about a dozen students and four, maybe five teachers there. Yesterday, I think the head count was over forty... Sign in to see full entry.

I'm trying to fall back into a rhythm I can keep. I make all of my posts over on FB... although probably not much longer as uncKle zucKy is mad at me and has me shadow banned. They first shut me down to make me send in a copy of my Driver's License, my SS card, and then made me give them my real... Sign in to see full entry.
