Writers' Cafe / Re: What Authors Need to Know
« Last post by Elizabeth Ann West on Today at 04:13:43 AM »
I need to give Kboards a HUGE THANK YOU!

Tonight is the first night of the conference and my three year dream of offering author coursework will be alive! The grinning hurts at this point!

Anyway, I just want to say there are a few pro bono spots left, so if you've really been banging your head against the wall trying to understand how to make a plan to profitability or how to choose a niche of a genre to write in, PLEASE message me and I'll give you a code. When the two amazing authors working on this project with me and I planned this project, our first concern was making sure there was always a section of "for the community" spots. We've all been at that moment where whatever, health, family stuff, our partner's job, etc didn't go to plan and it was a now or never moment. All I ask is you ACT on one thing you learn :)

I'll be checking my messages here for about another 4 hours and then taking downtime with my kids who have been so understanding as Mommy worked long hours the last 2 weeks, LOL. :) And to everyone already coming, I can't wait!

Writers' Cafe / Createspace account hacked
« Last post by GeneDoucette on Today at 04:08:39 AM »
Notification came overnight that I'd made changes to my royalty information when I hadn't. Someone changed the bank account information. Surprisingly, that was all they changed.

I fixed it, and changed my password. Now I think I'd better do the same for all my vendor accounts..

Folks,

I have removed a couple of posts that went past discussing potential pitfalls and concerns.  Let's continue to be specific about concerns and issues that readers considering this offer should be aware of, thanks.

Doglover, the $1K a month was an example, I believe.  I don't see (having just read through the thread) where the OP said that was the minimum revenue for this offer.  If I missed that, sorry! Re-reading now.

It's Thursday. I have got a yard-long "to-do" list to get done, so let's get on with today's list, shall we?

Remember - the campaigns that need nominations the most are the ones that are closest to the LAST DAY LEFT, 1 day left, 2 days left etc.

Updated List

LAST DAY LEFT! Tempt by Vincent N. Perales
2 days left Seeking Mercy by April A. Luna
3 days left Prone to Wander by Amy Craig
4 days left 6 Miles to Baltimore by C. Martin Barr
7 days left Hound of the Mountains by Stephan Morse
11 days left Stargazers Odyssey by Cassandra Hunter
11 days left The Myth of Wile E by Colleen Cooper
14 days left The Children of Lehom by Anya Pavelle
14 days left School Lies by  Kimberly G. Giarratano
15 days left Nina's Nebulosity by Lewis P. Gravis
15 days left Saints and Sinners by Cecelia Hopkins-Drewer
15 days left Candy Apple Tangerine by Bob Waldman

I put this list up every morning and I strive to keep it up-to-date so that this thread needn't dissolve into a flurry of "NOMINATE MY BOOK, NOMINATE MY BOOK" posts. No one is under any obligation to nominate any of these books. I'm just trying to keep the thread clear of unnecessary clutter. This way once a day there is a complete list of current candidates and folks can readily check out the kboards members who have a book in the running and can make up their own mind. I try and stay nonpartisan about it - which is why I don't comment on any particular book by title. I just keep the list.
 
If I have missed anyone please let me know either with a PM or by posting a link here in the thread.

Happy scouting, folks!

PS: Don't forget, if you have just been told that your book HASN'T been selected for Kindle Scout and you are wondering what to do next you can get just as much help from the "My Book Wasn't Accepted For Kindle Scout - Now What?" thread. Even if you already know what you are going to do I guarantee you'll get an awful lot of support from the gang over there!

Maybe the details are something that would be hashed out in PMs or emails between the OP and prospective IP sellers.

Not every advert, offer of services, or post on a forum goes into laborious detail about everything.

I personally wouldn't sell my unfinished works. Once you invest as much of yourself into a work -- even unfinished -- it's not easy to part with.

And if anyone's going to make marketable an unfinished work of mine, I would prefer that it is me.
We don't expect laborious detail, just enough detail to see what's what. BTW he doesn't want unfinished works; he wants works that are already earning $1000 dollar a month.

Writers' Cafe / Re: New website for free book promotion
« Last post by Doglover on Today at 03:20:42 AM »
Example...
I just looked at 543 books, I have 543 credits, how do you force 543 other authors to look at my books for 10 seconds to use up my credits?

When I first opened this thread yesterday, it was based on your title, I was inwardly screaming 'NOOOOOO, not another damn site for free books, stop already'

Then I read the post & the (then) 2 replies & thought, 'Ah, by authors for authors. Most of the free sites are swamped with authors showing their books to other authors as none of them (majority anyway) have any way to attract readers that don't write.
Just looked in again to see how it's going & if anyone has seen any benefit yet. Not seeing it.

Ooh ooh ooh, brainwave, I know where readers can find author's books to look at, they have search buttons & everything, not sure if I should say it on here, it's such a closely guarded secret & we can't have everyone finding out about it.

Oh, go on then, I'm thinking Amazon. No need to thank me. :)
Excellent suggestion :)

Writers' Cafe / Questions Regarding Bookclicker
« Last post by Tanu on Today at 03:11:43 AM »
1. Is Bookclicker good for non-fiction genre?
2. Can an author with Mailchimp list, promote to an author with Mailerlite list?
3. Do the charges displayed on a particular date, allow promotion only for that day?
4. How does a typical promo bought through Bookclicker and sent on email look like? Is it like a list of book? Or something designed specifically?

Is it the one called 'Facebook Ads & Facebook Marketing Mastery Guide 2018' by Justin O'Brien? I've been meaning to learn more about this - both for my books and for the day job so I really appreciate the recommendation - thanks!

That's the one. I'm taking it slow... There is a lot to go thru. He starts off talking about building a great Facebook page, which you have to have in order to run ads. You can always skip that part if it's too beginner for you, but I'd actually recommend watching it. I learned a ton I didn't know.
