There is a way (i.e. https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/rick-gualtieri/id458614847?mt=11&uo=4&at=11lPMV) .  I'll admit, I'm in KU right now and I don't 100% remember how I got it, but I believe it might have been through Apple's affiliate program.

I thought I would revive this thread. I received an email from Book Bucks about this company. I love the fact that they show you the contract beforehand so there are no surprises.

But I noticed a glaring change from when this post was created. The writer now only gets 25% of royalties; not the 50% which was previously listed. Also, they now take books that have already been published. I'm trying to figure out how that works; taking a book already published and putting it under their umbrella.

Anyone else work with this company or submitted material?

I got this email today too. I read over the offer and figure it's for authors that don't want to do with the hassle of marketing and publishing their own stories. But they have you do work similar to Kindle Scout, but just only have 100 be able to read your story. I'm guessing having you work for getting published by them is making you feel that they are worth the effort. It just sounds like a middle man set-up that would be easier to do on your own. I've done Kindle Scout and got rejected with the entire group that submitted at the same time. I'm just feeling it's better to stand on your own. But not everyone wants to do that. So, for those that want a helping hand and are willing to split their royalties it might work for them.

Interested in hearing how Mark did with this. I think he ended up having a book published by Kindle Scout anyway. Hope Mark is able to let us know a follow-up.

OP updated with yesterday's results. Blood Hunt has broken into the top 1,000! So, obviously, pre-order does not stop you from hitting a high rank during launch. Page reads are looking great for Blood Hunt, I even had a reader on GoodReads contact me yesterday asking where they could find The Fallen's Crime(it's my mailing list exclusive, it's posted on GoodReads because some people wanted to review it) because they were almost done with Blood Hunt and wanted to read The Fallen's Crime.

I also wanted to share this:

Blood Hunt got an orange tag!

Thank you for the new people that have wished me luck <3

Buckles seatbelt for another launch. Your first thread was so inspiring, all the best for this one.

And the most important question - when's book 3 coming out?

Dark Descent is actually coming out on the 17th  :o It's going through a final proofread right now, I'm supposed to get the cover today.

Hi KingSweden,

A writer I know password-protected the files she sent to beta readers and her proofreader. It caused all kinds of difficulties for the recipients and reduced the amount of feedback she received.

I believe if you are asking people to devote many hours to reading your work, you should make it as easy as possible for them to get started and to give you feedback. If you are worried about people republishing your work, you can always create it in a format that cannot be easily reprinted or converted, such as an 8.5 x 11 PDF or (gasp!) a paper hard copy. I did the latter for a WIP (see the Lean Media link in my sig) for two reasons, despite the added expense:

1. It's easier to open, read, and annotate without a device
2. When people receive a hard copy in a Priority Mail envelope I think they feel more obliged to actually respond ... I've gone through the trouble of mailing it, and it's sitting on their desk so they can't ignore it. 

Good luck!

I have an answer now! "This Is Us." I just discovered it about a week or so ago and watched every single episode On Demand in a matter of three days. Can't wait for the new season!
But Can You Drink The Water? began as a sit-com, but eventually came to nought when the freelance production was dropped by the SABC. I then changed the script into a novel.
However, after having read William Goldman's 'Adventures in the Screentrade - a personal view of Hollywood and screenwriting' I was completely disillusioned and decided it wasn't worth bothering with screenwriting. ::)
Writers' Cafe / iBooks links

I know how to get links to individual books in the iTunes store (using sites like this one: https://linkmaker.itunes.apple.com/en-us ). I'd like to give readers a link that'll show them *all* the books under my name in the iTunes store, though. In the store I can click through to a page that has my name at the top and shows all my books... is there any way to get a link to that page that I can use in, say, a newsletter or on my website?

You were treated VERY well. Again, most screenwriters aren't even invited to the set!  :o(
I know. It was great. I tell my story because I hear people nay-say Hollywood and film folk all the time.

If you're  interested, here's a blog post I did after returning, complete with pics from the set. What a blast -- and Vancouver was a beautiful city. http://www.johndixonbooks.com/a-visit-to-the-set-of-the-intelligence-pilot/

Would it be okay to promote the book design aspect or will I be thrown of a medium-sized building.

You want to join another author's group so you can promote your book covers to her members, and you're seriously asking if that's ok?  ::)
