Writers' Cafe / When Should I Announce Book 2 and 3
« on: February 24, 2016, 07:44:47 AM »
Hey people!

I was wondering, how long after I release book 1, should I announce book 2 and 3?

Book 2 release month is July and 3 is December.
Book 1 came out on Feb 16th.

I am already writing book 2 (43k written, 130k target) and book 3 is planned in general. Artworks are done as well.

Ray just wants to be left alone.

He is a simple man with every day issues like the rest of us. He captains a rusty old Consortium freighter for a few credits a month and doesn’t care much about anything else. Then fate decides to play a game and puts Ray in the center of an intergalactic conspiracy that involves a first contact scenario that may very well be the end of human race.

Poor Ray.

Writers' Cafe / Thank You Everyone!

I just wanted to thank each and every one of you. I found my way here a few months ago as a complete noob, who had no idea about what and how to do things. I read and read and read and asked and you answered with patience and it gave me courage.

The fruit of that courage is; I am holding my first book in my hands 8). It will come out next week, on 16th and this community helped me to take that first step.

So, thank you!

Writers' Cafe / Confused, Terrified and a few other feelings
« on: January 30, 2016, 11:38:11 AM »
Hey everyone!

In about 20 days, my first novel is coming out and I am terrified about it. Not about the reactions or reviews. I am completely lost about how to promote it. What to do, etc. I am reading these forums like mad for the last three months. I learnt quite a lot of things but I still feel like a fish out of the water.

Any ideas, helpful first time tips & tricks? Soothing words and such?


Writers' Cafe / When to upload to KDP and release date question
« on: December 24, 2015, 02:25:11 PM »
Hello everytone,

I'm about to release my first book in February. Do you know if KDP enables me to set a release date and keep the book unavailable until then WITHOUT having pre-orders. I don't want to have a pre-order setup (or should I?)

Thank you in advance for your guidance.

Also, for a sci-fi/fantasy (space opera) book, any release date suggestions? I am aiming for second Sunday of February but it is the Valentines Day. Would it hinder the first day or week sales? Should I push it one more week? I read at some forums and blogs that it is better to release the book in the first two weeks of a month and on Sunday or Monday as a self-publisher.

Writers' Cafe / Publishing at Amazon without publishing from Amazon
« on: December 15, 2015, 06:29:35 AM »
Hello everyone!

I am confused and looking for a solution regarding my upcoming book.

I am willing to have it available for Kindle on Amazon but since I live in Turkey and Amazon doesn't have any payment options other than checks, this is an issue because checks usually get lost and banks either charge epic amounts to cash them in or they don't even accept the foreign checks.

In the year 2015 (almost 16 now), I would've guessed it would be possible to pay with PayPal or wire transfer etc. But nope.

Any workaround ideas? Any other distributor out there who can handle the royalty payments etc?

Hey there!

I am a newbie writer, just getting ready to publish his first book in the upcoming months (unless I hear something from an agency in that time). I am trying to learn as much as I can and preparing for the long and demanding road of self publishing. So, I ended up here. Hope to learn a lot!

Well, there it is.

Oh, I am also a professional metal musician and a producer but it has nothing to do with what I write.

PS: I own a kindle but I find myself digging the shelves of bookstores. My cats also prefer to sleep on my books rather than the device.
