Writers' Cafe / Re: CS vs. Kindle Print
« on: Yesterday at 06:49:09 AM »
Of course it may be that KDP Print Beta attracts clueless people (they see the advert on the KDP page and figure, hey, why not?), but it does cause endless problems. I think that if you create a perfect PDF, both for the interior and the wraparound cover, perhaps using CreateSpace specifications for the latter, you should be okay. But then your book won't be sold on Barnes & Noble or Book Depository (great service for overseas shoppers) etc. I could never accept that, so I will be moving to IngramSpark if CS ever bites the dust. I'd use KDP Print for Amazon and Ingram for the rest of the world, with the same ISBN.

Clueless? I don't think of myself as clueless after five years publishing and nearly thirty books. And yet, gasp, I use KDP Print these days. The difference may be that I don't bother with expanded distribution.

What are the endless problems? I've published the last four paperbacks on KDP and they look identical to CS ones when printed. Of course, mine are printed in the UK so maybe that makes a difference?

I quite like having all the reporting in one place, and it means that print sales show up on Bookreport as well, which is very handy.

Writers' Cafe / Re: Book2Pod - your book as a podcast
« on: Yesterday at 03:35:51 AM »
As someone who doesn't have a clue how to load up podcasts to the various sites, I'd see this as a benefit just because they'd do all the hosting and complicated bit for me. It seems like good exposure (agree that the cost is a bit scary though, when we don't know yet if people will tolerate robot voices). I'd sign up like a shot though if there was a beta for doing book one for free so I could review the download stats and know if it was worth doing more.

Also, I'd imagine this works much better if you are wide than if in KU. Because that way if someone listens on Google Play they can instantly download the book if they liked it but didn't like the audio, or if they wanted more in the same series, same on Apple etc.

I'm going to keep an eye on it, especially to see how well it works and also to see if they add more voices (my UF books would prefer a Scottish accent - but that seems unlikely).

Magic... Mayhem... Memory Loss. One hell of a way to start the day!

Not really relevant, but I don't like "Soon after", it's way too wishy washy for me. The rest of your blurb is quite punchy and this sticks out like a limp thumb for me.

Even "And then" would follow better. Or 24 hours later... or something, anything else!

Also from your blurb:

With great power comes... a whole lotta trouble

I think it's intriguing and instantly shows the humour

Writers' Cafe / Re: Your thoughts requested on a mystery cover
« on: February 16, 2018, 08:17:13 AM »
I'm confused.

Female amateur sleuth coupled with the series title used and the tartan, all says cosy mystery. The rest of the cover says Mystery Suspense.

The blurb confused me even more. A dirk? And I'd start with the sleuth (I'm assuming she's the main character?) and then go on to what she discovers about the victim.

This reads way better and I agree with Jessie's comments too.

I like the cover, I think the kilt pattern at the top and the punnish title says 'cozy mystery' just fine. I wouldn't read this expecting a thriller.

The blurb, hmmm...

Meeting former lovers is always awkward...especially when they've been murdered. Scottish historian Elle Mackay is drawn back to Clan MacUspaig to find answers to some touchy questions.

Was it a mid-life crisis that led Clan leader Stuart MacUspaig to try to cut ties to his wife, his manor, and the historic Roan Island Highland Games? Or something more sinister? Who owns the antique dirk embedded in his back? What secret plans did Stuart have?

Elle must find who has deadly plans of his own before she becomes collateral damage in the extinction of Clan MacUspaig.

Eh, a little rough but not as passive.

Writers' Cafe / Re: Services: Manuscript Editing + 10% OFF
« on: February 16, 2018, 08:06:45 AM »
As an author, I'm always hugely grateful to people who post costs per thousand words. I hate having to navigate through a website and then calculate all the zeros (I'm never sure if I've got it right).

For example my current proofreader charges $2 per 1k words, so I know that a 50k manuscript will cost $100. I'm actually looking for a new line editor but would like to compare some prices without digging around and getting out a calculator. Of course, that's entirely up to you, but just a thought...

Greetings! You're welcome to promote your business and website here in the Writers' Cafe.

Now that you have an official thread, you'll want to add your listing to our Yellow Pages, found here: http://www.kboards.com/yp/. The listing is free to KB members and is completely self-service; you can add and edit your listing from the page. More information on our Yellow Pages listing can be found here.

In your thread here, we ask that the same basic rules be followed as we have for authors in the Book Bazaar: you may have this one thread about your service and must post to it rather than start a new thread each time. New threads about the service will be removed. Please bookmark this thread so that you can find it again when you want to post. You may not make back-to-back posts to the thread within seven days. If someone responds (as I'm doing with this post), you may reply to them, but otherwise you must wait seven days. Any pattern of posting designed to artificially bump your thread to the top of the forum is prohibited. Please note that very short or (one- or two-word) posts with no meaningful information are discouraged and may be deleted at the moderators' discretion. Lastly, your posts and images will need to meet our "forum decorum" guidelines, which is the case for every member.

You may find that members ask searching questions -- about how your service works, for example, or what they will get for their money, or whether your service adheres to Amazon's terms of service. Such "vetting" is a common here.

Note that members are allowed to provide civil and honest feedback about your service in this thread. This feedback may include criticisms as well as kudos. You may respond to criticism in a civil manner, but name-calling, badgering, accusations of lying, and other breaches of forum decorum can lead to loss of vendor posting privileges.

Looks like you got plenty of replies.

I was also going to say that salt would have been considered too expensive in that era, so maybe sand (especially if they are near the coast). But a clay pot with a stopper would be in keeping as a travel vessel, perhaps also filled with sand to absorb seepage.

Writers' Cafe / Re: How do you know when to call it quits on a book?
« on: February 14, 2018, 02:29:15 PM »
I'll go against the grain and say the tired old "power through".

I've had at least three books that have been like pulling teeth to write, but they had to be written because they were part of a series.

I know of only one way to force the finish to hurry up and come and that is to have a deadline. Put the book up for pre-order and then you have absolutely no choice but to get the words down or face the consequences.

It's gutsy and possibly stupid, but extremely effective!

(Another alternative is to book a slot with an editor and pay half up front, then you are working to that deadline instead. That works pretty well for me also, but it doesn't give me the fear to the same level.)

This isn't a "correct" term, but a slang term would be "a guys-gal", the opposite of which is "a girls-girl".
But it isn't really as strong as hating. It just generally means girls who prefer the company of guys, or girls who prefer to be with the girls.

You could keep it really simple and say she was a woman-hater?

I've edited a couple of posts and removed a couple that were follow on from the edited ones. Let's keep it respectful of each other.

I'm now un-locking.

I've gone through this thread with a chainsaw. Some posts that were helpful and informative were deleted but I felt it was necessary to bring the thread back on track. Let's keep it that way please.

Writers' Cafe / Re: Funny comments and questions from book signing events
« on: February 06, 2018, 08:11:23 AM »
Never done a book signing but I have dinner party lines I hear all the time:

"I've always wanted to write a book." (Usually followed by a breakdown of the plot they've been thinking about for ten years).

"You should totally write a book about my life." (Usually followed by a detailed account of the fascinating life they've led.)

"That sounds interesting. So your husband's a chef? Does he do the cooking at home?" (Usually followed by losing all interest in me and bombarding him with questions.)

Be careful would be my advice. Just give him broken English not putting too much emphasis on the accent?

Writers' Cafe / Re: Do you read your own novels?
« on: February 05, 2018, 09:03:22 AM »
I write in series so I always go back and re-read earlier books in the series before I start the newest one. It puts me in the same "voice" and reminds me of important little details.

Also, I write books I'd like to read (I suspect most people do) and so I enjoy reading them as they are my sort of book!

Writers' Cafe / I need a quick proofreader at very short notice!
« on: February 05, 2018, 07:50:49 AM »
I have a book up for pre-order (final draft due on 02/07) and had it all finished, when quite randomly I suddenly decided to add in the guy's POV and wrote nearly an extra 20k words. There's no time for editing, but if I could find someone who would polish out the typos and spelling errors with a quick proof then I'd be super grateful! I usually pay $2 per 1k words.

Writers' Cafe / Re: Do you put pre-orders straight into KU?
« on: February 02, 2018, 10:09:02 AM »
Thanks Rosie, I know it doesn't start, but it still shows up as a KU book.

I was simply wondering if other people held off from ticking the box so as not to cannibalise sales or if they did tick the box so KU readers knew it was coming?

Writers' Cafe / Do you put pre-orders straight into KU?
« on: February 02, 2018, 09:08:33 AM »
I've not really done much on pre-order until now, but my new series is in KU and I've just loaded up book four.

I left the KU box unticked because I thought less people might order if if they thought they could read it free with KU when it comes out. I couldn't see any benefit of marking it as a KU title until it goes live. But now I'm wondering if that's an odd thing to do and if most people just shove it in as soon as they load the pre-order?

We've had more than one report asking for the thread to be put back on track. We have no objection to you starting a new thread on the topic of sexual abuse in literature if you can keep it respectful to each other, but I will remove further references in this particular thread.
