Wow!
Lots of interesting replies there.
A couple of you people write from 4am-6am!!!
I normally get up for work at 6am, and I'm a total zombie and on auto-pilot at that hour :o

I think the majority of answers on offer give a glimpse of the commitment and dedication a lot of you guys and girls put into your writing.
I suppose nobody said it was going to be easy.
Basically, whatever success you people achieve is not just due to your writing skills, but also a lot of hard graft and sacrifice as well ;)

Hi,
I was just wondering, do most of the authors here work/not work?
I'm curious because I see some people have five/six maybe more books published. I've heard some people say the write maybe four books a year.
Maybe I'm just a slow writer, but with work and life's other bits and bobs, it took me over a year of my spare time to write one novel!

Also, having seen how some authors recommend giving their first book free as a sample of what they write (a lead in to their other books), I decided to write a (shorter)prequel to my novel, and give that away. I did the majority of it in two weeks (two working days included) averaging about 1150 words per day. Is that good/bad/average?

Like I said, just wondering how other authors get their writing done?

The Book Bazaar / Free Today (Sunday) - 'Running on Empty' - a thriller..
« on: September 22, 2013, 06:23:41 AM »


Hi All,
Just to let anyone who's interested know that my 320pp novel is available to download FREE today....


Tom Feeney, a tall, dark haired Bostonian of Irish descent, had a comfortable life analysing data for the Government. Now those very people he worked for want him dead.
From Boston to Nebraska, and Eastern Afghanistan to Western Europe, he must try and piece together exactly who is trying to kill him and why. He must learn to trust in people he’s never met, rely on his instincts, improvise, adapt, and possibly even learn to love.

A Thriller?
 A Mystery?
A Romance?

In a novel spanning eight decades and three continents,
A Story.

See, there's the thing, some of you people seem to be fairly savvy when it comes to the whole internet based publicising thing, whereas I'm totally lost in a sea of URL's and HTML stuff.
To me it's like walking through a field of treacle.
I found it much easier to write the book, than actually get it out there in public view (apart from the hackers obviously!)

I came across a writers blog recently, and one of the suggestions which seemed good was to write a prequel, a short story or novelette which could be given away free as a sort of lead-in. It makes sense (to me anyway), but I'm spending so much of my available time messing around with websites and avitars, that there just aren't enough spare hours. I have a rough idea of the story etc, but haven't had the opportunity to get it down...

Yep, I suppose you're right.
The site in question was just a posting site.
I did however, manage to contact the hosting site for the file and have it removed...something I suppose. ;D

Oh, and I meant to mention in the original post, I decided to make the book available free for download tomorrow (Sunday) for a day.
Maybe that will redress the balance a bit, let the good guys (and girls) get it for free too!
 
I suppose it could be looked upon as having a positive side, in the sense that 174 people read the synopsis and thought it worthwhile to download?

Although if it costs them nothing, maybe not.. :'(

Writers' Cafe / Authors - A Cautionary Tale...

Hi all,
Just because your book isn't getting downloads on Amazon, doesn't mean nobody's reading it!
I ran a Google search for my book 'Running on Empty - Roger Barry' yesterday, and although it's Amazon listing came up first, another site (which I won't name because I'm not sure about forum rules etc) also came up on the first search page.
Someone had posted the synopsis of my book, word for word, together with a link to a full download of it on another hosting site.
I was more than a little taken aback to discover there had been 174 illegal downloads of my book!
I've only had a handful of download sales for my book so far, partially (I'm hoping) because few know it actually exists!

So, 18 months of my spare time writing, editing, and rewriting, with an outlay of hundreds of $$$ of my own hard earned cash for cover design, mobi conversion etc, etc, ..only for someone to rip it off and stick it up for free illegal downloads...
I was not a happy bunny!
Any of you who's written a book will know the effort involved, and a 320pp book doesn't just write itself. :-X
I decided to post a note to the 174 downloaders, in the hope of something good coming from something bad.
I introduced myself as the author, and asked them politely, that if they had in fact read the book and enjoyed it, would they oblige me and maybe take a few minutes to post a favourable review?
I then sent a message to the moderators of said site, informing them that I was the author, and there was a post on their site that infringed my copyright.
I left it for a bit and checked back later.
When I tried to log on, I was blocked from their site for 'spamming'    Period Blocked? - Forever!
Apparently it's perfectly ok to rip off someone's copyrighted work, but not ok for the owner of said work to, even politely, make contact with these people?

I'm wondering, and asking you authors out there, is this unusual, or a regular occurrence to those hoping to promote their book on the WWW?
Roger
