Writers' Cafe / Re: The get-it-right-this-time new series launch
« Last post by PaulineMRoss on Today at 03:42:34 AM »
A good day yesterday - 66 sales (thank you, ENT and Ebooksoda), 4K pages read (down a tad) and rank actually nudged inside 2K for the first time, and was within a whisker of my very best ever rank, which was also after an ENT promo, as it happens.

Yesterday was also the third of my newsletter swaps, and I confess I'm disappointed with the results from those. Three lists, with a combined subscriber base of 11.4K, and well-aligned with my sub-genre, and yet if they gave me 10 extra sales apiece, I'd be surprised. I'd expected more than that, somehow.

Today Fussy Librarian is my only promo on the new book, but I also have the box set from the first series free with promos at BookBasset, Booktastik, EbookHounds, EbookSoda, FreeBooksy. And possibly ChoosyBookworm. I booked them for today, they confirmed the submission for today, I paid my money, but when the confirmation email came, it had tomorrow's date. I emailed to point this out, and got a chirpy response: hey, I get hundreds of emails a week, I'll get back to you the millennium after next (paraphrasing slightly). So that is where things stand, apart from the regular arrival of spam from them. I've added a second free day, so if they really do run the book tomorrow, I'm covered, but right now I'm not impressed and can't recommend them.

Nice house.  You must be making bank.

I bought it at the bottom of the real estate crash. 100 years old and on the edge of the gentrification area. Had to replace the plumbing from the street to the alley. Did most of the renovation myself over a five year period. Lived in the basement the first year and a half, went over a year without a kitchen except for a coffee pot, microwave, and refrigerator. It's nice now, but I used to wander around looking at everything that needed to be done and thinking, "What the heck did I do to myself?"

The house next door, the one where the fire started, was renovated about the time I bought mine. Guy put it on the market for $560K and no one was interested. It's been a rental ever since. There is a real estate bubble building again. Houses in the neighborhood are going for outrageous prices. House on the other side of me was just renovated and sold to a young pastor for $461K. I should have gone into religion instead of writing.

Nothing changed on mine. I rarely check the UK one, so anything could have happened, just didn't.

I was directed to KBoards while searching for something else. I couldn't find it; much of it anyway - it's quite the niche (perhaps). However, when I found KBoards I became intrigued by a thread discussing (at length) KU1 and KU2. I'm still reading it. It's also what prompted me to register here on KBoards as I'm an indie writer. So, howdy.

Mine seem to be ok, but I did re-add them thinking they weren't there in the first place. ::)

NICK KNIGHT FROM FOREVER KNIGHT?

THAT WOULD BE BECAUSE YOU ARE AN ASTUTE PERSON WHO GOT MY CLUE.

HOW ABOUT THIS ONE? A VAMPIRE BUSINESSMAN TRIES TO TAKE OVER THE LOCAL AREA, CONSTANTLY HARASSED BY A DECREPIT GUSTAV VAN HELSING, HELSING'S TWO SCHOOL-AGED AMERICAN NEPHEWS, AND A RANDOM LOCAL GIRL. FILMED IN LUXEMBOURG. NOTABLE FOR HOW THEY LIKED TO SHOW THE VAMP'S WEALTH BY HAVING HIM TALK ON AN ENORMOUS CELL PHONE.

SONG? UH. DEAD MAN'S PARTY BY OINGO BOINGO, TO SUIT THE SHOW'S TONE IF YOU DON'T THINK ABOUT IT TOO MUCH.

SHADOW OF THE VAMPIRE?
