Writers' Cafe / Windows 10 Upgrades, Kindle Previewer stops working
« Last post by jb1111 on Today at 03:57:42 AM »
Like some PC and laptop owners, I have Windows 10 on mine and so far it's been OK to use.

Periodically it updates, and for the past year or so, I haven't seen any glitches.

But this last upgrade has caused some definite issues.

First, there was an issue posting on some forums (which partially cleared up -- probably "improvements" to the Edge browser); then I noticed IE disappeared (had to search for it using File Explorer). And now, Kindle Previewer, which worked perfectly for two years since I installed it on my laptop, won't launch. The on-computer "Troubleshooter", of course, is useless.

Any on else with a Win10 PC encounter this problem?

Why do you care what other people are doing?

Why do you care if I do or don't hold myself to a word count? Or better question, why can't people just answer the question asked?
I shared an amusing quirk of mine and asked people if they wanted to share theirs. That's it.

Yeah, I do the chapter-a-day thing instead of word counts. Whatever gets the book written, do that.

As already said, why would you be bothered about word counts? Some of us need them to keep going, but it's a guide, not a goal. We all do things differently; some of us plot, some of us don't. Some of us have word counts. some of us don't. Some of us have to force ourselves to write, some of us don't.

Why do you care what other people are doing?

Looks cool to me, not my thing but it's certainly striking. Ought to pique the interest of your target market, which I'm assuming is paranormal.

Note, I didn't read your blurb, so I'm 'reading' your cover cold:

Paranormal fiction (but not paranormal romance and not necessarily 'urban fantasy') or maybe horror - or maybe YA paranormal/horror 'cause it reminds me a lot of some of the YA books from a few years ago - especially from the nighties/noughties era.

Pro for me: Typography is good, well-blended images, and it looks like a professionally-made cover. Plus, possibly genre-indicating - assuming I guessed the genre right, that is.

Con: As mentioned - for me - it has a slightly dated style BUT it's still a well-done cover, pro-looking and for it's intended purpose (a tie-in cover on a budget) I don't think it really matters anyway and it's certainly good enough.   

It wouldn't peak my interest, no.  But, I don't read horror so if that's the genre then I wouldn't be your intended target anyway.  However, if it's paranormal fic and particularly YA (both of which I do read) I just don't personally find it particularly appealing or intriguing.  But that's personal to me - and I'm sure a lot of other people will like it.   :)

I'd keep the cover and use it.  Its a good cover and I think it would serve its intended purpose.

Hope that helps!

Blood, Mud and Corpses is available on Amazon for free, just click the cover below.  As the first part of the Royal Zombie Corps series, Blood, Mud and Corpses retells World War One with one slight change.



Synopsis:
No one knew when the endless bloodshed and grindingly futile toil of the trenches would ever end. Then a miracle came from a source totally removed from even the most fantastic of dreams.

In 1916 the first British conscripts were called up to the British Army. The war had become a series of attritional battles and British manpower was being sapped. Men of all types were called up, but what they found on the battlefields of France and Belgium, was somewhat different from what they had expected.
