I have just started going wide (D2D), and ran my first fb add. I used a link to books2read.com/u/bOaWdQ . The landing page to that link shows a cover thumbnail and all my links, including Amazon. The setup is friendly, two clicks get the potential to their desired retailer's page for my book, and it's free. So far so good for me.

They will also let you customize your link to make it easier to find your books. (ie  https://www.books2read.com/ CitrusBeachMystery-1  )
and they send out a post to anyone who is a follower that you have a new book

Wow, this is great. I had no idea we had so many southerners here! Thank you to those who joined my face book group-we're getting to know each other.
Condolences to the Bull Dogs, that was a great game!
Since I'm originally from Niagara Falls, NY (30+ years ago), you can guess my reaction when I saw my first field of cotton. I knew I was in the south. That and the road side stands selling boiled peanuts and citrus!

Correct, Jena, but around here we have so many people who are not native that we have to clarify or they get so confused. Poor dears. They don't get that whole "I'll have a coke" thing, either. :D

There is never a bad time for iced tea, I agree. Also, must be sweet. Anyone who says different, them's fightin' words!

I'll go check out the group. Not that fond of FB myself, but it seems everyone uses it. :(

Yes, sweet tea is a must! I read the restrictions for a diet and it said no sweetened coffee or tea lost 2 pounds laughing!

If you're from the southern US and spend time on facebook, I've started a private group, jut for us!
Writers of the South (https://www.facebook.com/groups/2436453336578992/?ref=bookmarks )
I hope you'll join us. I for one know there is a different way things are looked at from down here, and sometimes it's nice to talk to others who experience the same thing...
You know: 'gator is a real word, ice tea is always sweet, and craker isn't just a flat salty food!

Writers' Cafe / Re: Storyshop vs. Scrivener
« on: January 04, 2018, 01:04:07 PM »
I' seriously thinking of using it to create Series Bibles. It looks like it can hold so much more than scrivener for characters and I like the way you can see how one character relates to another. I would probably use it combined with scrivener. Besides, I have gotten so much good info from these guys, I don't begrudge the $9. I'll just skip a couple trips to Starbucks and make my own coffee! Also it's another storage space off my computers, which always seem to have problems at the worst possible moments!

I've been working on taking my current series (2) out of KDP select and putting them on D2D. So far that feels like a smart move.
But now I'm getting ready to launch a new series and wondering if I should put it in select for the first 90 days and then go wide with it.
Any opinions?

« on: December 12, 2017, 07:30:03 PM »
It's what I'm trying to do, but clients (in my real job) have a habit of wanting things done before Christmas! So I understand "too much crap".
Also, my idea of launching is uploading to Amazon and slumping into a chair.
But, assuming I manage it I'll report any movement.
Glad to hear I'm not the only one in this position. I've been holding back the 1st in a new series to publish in Jan. and really thought I would have a proper launch. But here it is the middle of December!

To someday retire and let gardening once again be a hobby! Seriously, I would love to edge my way to less work time and more writing time. I feel empty during my business's busy months and I have to put a hold on the writing. Making an income would be nice too, then my husband could join me in my days of leisure.

« on: December 01, 2017, 01:57:26 PM »
December 1st and (don't ask me why) I I've started thinking about goal setting for 2018. How many of you write done your goals and set concrete timelines? (I think I was procrastinating on the billing, letting my mind wander, lol)

Yup. I just pulled my first in series from KU to put wide, and now that it's uploaded to Google it says the book is in review and it may be a day or two.
Question-are you only going wide with your first in series? If so, may I ask why?

21
I blogged, tweeted, facebook and googled!!!
sold 16 books!
Thanks Renee!

I hate grammar, punctuation and literary snobbery. I tell great stories!

oh that does feel good!

AMEN!!! Of course in a true confession, I blame all my mistakes on my cats-they are constantly walking across the key board, so why not?!?

In my Citrus Beach Series, I have each ending involve something that you'll find down here in Florida (ie. the bungling thief steps in a large mound of fire ants, giving the heroine the chance to run)

Be careful when you try to post your books BACK on Amazon. I just got slammed with a prove your copyright on a book published under my legal name. I escalated to the Jeff email, wrote back the quality team and I had already opened a help ticket because the book was stuck in LIVE under review.

As to why anyone would want Amazon through Draft2Digital instead of dealing with them directly. Oh, I can think of a few reasons right now......

 Maybe this is a good reason for us to provide an isbn for your books? just wondering
