I thought I was safe from the change when I still had the line graph yesterday. :( I don't like it. I wish they gave us an option between bar and line. Some checkbox or something.

Thanks for sharing. I got a timer thing on my Mac a while back too, but recently discovered Forest app, which helped me a whole lot too. It's a paid app though, but same idea with the 25 min sprints. I think it's the idea of getting into the mindset of just focusing on work? Not sure either, but it works.

I find character templates help a lot. It saves me from fiddling with formatting and keeps everything consistent. You pretty much just set a folder as a template folder, then make a new text file inside it as a template. Then when you long press the green + button you'll have the option to make a new file from the template you made.

I also like adding pictures of characters/places for corkboard mode. Makes it easier to visualise things in my head. Then also things like being able to change the icon of folders, like map for locations, then character heads for characters. Small things, but I appreciate them. :)

Tip 1. Make every month a NaNo month with this:

We have recently added a goal tracker tool to the main site, free to use year-round! On nanowrimo.org, go to "My NaNoWriMo" and click "Goal Trackers". There you can set a word or hour goal and define the duration.

Once you've created your goal tracker, you can click on the "Stats" button next to it to see a full graph and all the nifty stats, like your projected completion date and words needed per day.

SO GOOD! Really helps me.


Tip 2. At the end of each work month take a week off to polish the previous novel that is back from the editor, get it loaded up, do some marketing and backmatter updating, and some real life sorting.  It makes a huge difference to stress levels if you don't start writing the next book until you've had a week to get ahead of yourself. Then the decks are clear for the next book to begin.


Combine the two tips and you get a novel once every five weeks. In theory!  ;)

Ohh, I had no idea this feature existed. Thanks!  :)

I like contemporary romance too. I read mostly romantic comedies, but I'd read PNR or Romantic suspense too if the mood strikes. But I usually prefer something light and fun, and I love a good HEA.

Thanks Marilyn and everyone. :-)
It's so nice not seeing ranks sink lol. I saw 2 sales and some pages read this morning. Also, not sure how much it helps, but I made a post on my blog.

You're welcome, everyone. Thanks for reading.

You'd just include that text in the back of the book (or on your website), same as any other offer. The "sign-up here" text would be a link to the sign-up landing page. I called it a "VIP" list just for copywriting reasons/to make it sound exclusive, but you could call it a "readers group" or something else.

The offer in this instance is getting an email to the Amazon page when the discount is active. Since Amazon usually takes a day or two to notify people following you/past people who have bought your books that a new release is out (if they do it at all), the only way most people are gonna see the $0.99 offer in those 24 hours is if they're on the list.

Obviously they could search your name on Amazon or stumble across it. But their timing would have to be pretty good. So to get the discount, they'd really need to be on the list - otherwise they'd risk missing out.

Hope that makes sense. The downside is that you lock yourself into launching at $0.99, at least for 24 hours.

Got it. Basically the Amazon link of book on sale. Thanks!

Thank you! Your guides are always so helpful.

-edit-
Oh! I have a question about the limited-time discount thing.

"VIP members get my newest novels for $0.99 during the first 24 hours of release sign-up here to join."
How does one do this? Just curious. Thanks again.  :)

I love writing in our local library. Most of the time it's pretty quiet. There's the occasional conversation on the phone, but mostly it's been really easy to sink into writing. There's internet for some research, and the air condition is nice. There's also coffee at the lower level if I feel like it.

It was so wonderful working with Dj.

She did a great job catching embarrassing errors, and turnaround was fast. She was also patient with me and was available to answer any questions I had. To echo what others have already said, I highly recommend her services.

I stacked Hidden Gems with ebook Itch and made back what I spent, and then some. :) Also seconding Eileen's newsletter.
My Bargainbooksy one also wasn't bad, but I think could've been better with a larger backlist.

Ilona Andrews, the husband and wife team who are stars in trad publishing, but indie published a series that also became a hit.

Ohh seconding this. <3

You and me both.  :)  I read print books cover to cover, except things like glossaries, indexes, etc.  I want to do the same for my e-books, so I hit Go to cover and start at the beginning.  I tap out of the pop up and go read any back matter too.  I'd have to have really hated the book not to, and usually those I don't make it to the end anyway.

And me. :D I like making sure I'm reading everything as I'm meant to.

Thanks for the heads up!

Grats!

Just hit 1k. Story winding down earlier than expected, but not in a bad way, I think.
