Promotion Weekend

I've found my stride in a different project and I am going to work on it almost exclusively over the weekend. I have a number of things I want to post here about the promotion game, but it requires an attention level that is drawn elsewhere. Such is the problem of multiple writing projects. I'll...

Size Doesn't Matter and Other Myths

See how a nice title draws people in? I had someone ask me on a different forum how they could ever be published if all they wrote were short stories. Very simple. Kindle and others like it can be your friend. My very first efforts on KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing) were all less than 1500 words. In... Sign in to see full entry.

Searching For Your Book

I missed adding this section back when we were getting to list your e-book for sale on Amazon, so here we go! One of the more critical steps you will need to fill out is the 'keywords,' or using a more modern term, 'search words.' The 'professional' term is "SEO words" or 'Search Engine...

More Promoting P.T. Barnum Style

One of the next things you'll want to begin to do is promote yourself at your most prominent place of sales, that is Amazon via Amazon's Author Central. This is a precious tool for a couple of reasons. First and foremost, there is no charge to be a member. Second, if a potential reader finds one of... Sign in to see full entry.

Theory Vs Reality

I am working on something that I know 'in theory' will work but am putting theory to the test with Amazon Kindle. I've seen photos in Kindle e-books, but it seems that formatting words isn't the only thing that Kindle can bungle. I uploaded a couple photos to a book that doesn't sell often and saw...

I'm Scribbling As Fast As I Can!

I've got some new postings to make here, but I am working to organize them a bit as some of them were scribbled out on a notepad while I was off on vacation. As with anything I write, feel free to ask questions when I post stuff here. I haven't mentioned it before, but I finally got the local... Sign in to see full entry.

Promoting Your Stuff - Websites

One of the next things you need to do as your new e-book/book/audiobook is nearing competition is to begin to tease your fans about what is on the way on your website. Start to give a brief explanation of what your story is about and maybe give a four hundred to seven hundred word blurb from it to... Sign in to see full entry.

Self Promotion - Part 1 -This will be A Huge Section as Time Goes By

NOTE" To be fair (to myself) Ive taken some of this information out of context of the e-book I'm compliling on this subject. You will read that in a couple of places, it 'assumes' that you have read previous information an at this point of posting, you have not. Pretned you ahve read it and post me...

Waiting And Planning For Audible

While you wait for Audible to 'do its thing,' you've got a lot of work to do so once your audiobook has become available, you can hit the ground running. I have very little 'personal' use for FB because I have too much to do as it is and adding reading through a bunch of political stuff, and photos... Sign in to see full entry.

Getting Audible.. Part Four... I Think

Alright. You've sent out your offer to your winning choice of producers. This should be relatively easy, but I've had one would-of-been producer who had agreed to one rate but then demanded something farther down the road than we had initially decided upon when we started this deal. I don't submit... Sign in to see full entry.
