It's a mystery- Something is wrong. As Lance Underphal pads softly across the cold flagstone, he hears her weeping. She is on her knees, hunched over in the middle of the room, her back to him, facing the dark fireplace. Something is very wrong. Lance wants to rush to her, but can't. In a hoarse whisper, he says, "Callie?" She lets out a mournful wail from deep within as she turns, their infant son in her arms, blue and still. He reels from the blow. How can this be? They don't have a son.

I am loving all the up beat information here.

My second romance book was put in the erotica dungeon (inappropriately btw) by Amazon and it really hit me hard. I had a few days of thinking about jacking it all in because if Amazon was going to bury my books, what's the point?  But this thread has reminded me that Amazon is not the be all and end all and I feel SO much more positive starting this week, knowing that there are other options I can investigate and explore and Amazon does not need to be the end of my writing career before it has even lifted off the ground :)

Thanks so much for sharing everyone  :-*

I'm not sure what to say. I also have two children under ten. I cannot imagine what you are going through right now. You and your family are in my prayers and thoughts. x

Bookhippo is free (and UK based/advertises to Uk only.)

I used it for a free book and it did double compared to a $12 US promo that I did previously.

I would use them again for my next book when it's on special for 99c/99p. :)

Hi Emilia,

Thanks for such a detailed and helpful reply :) My book is also SFR, it's the second in a series and I used the same keywords with my first book, so I have no idea what went wrong. I'm new to this, I only published my first book in September and just couldn't believe it when I saw the categories.


 I shall keep at it. Your answer has given me hope after trying not to sob because  my book was on the same page as tentacle sex (no offence to tentacle authors but its so not the same genre ).

Thank you so very much

Hi everyone,

My second book which is a romance with a man chest on the cover has been put in the erotica category - which it's not. it only has two sex scenes and the rest of the book is action, running around, guns and explosions.

I have tried tweaking my key words with little success. Does anyone have any suggestions that might help? 

thanks!

Hi
I'd recommend listening to J A Huss's podcast on You Tube where she discusses the romance arc for individual books as well as plotting the romance arc for a series. All of her videos on writing are good.

I also love the Gwen Hayes book and have used it for both my books even though they have different plots etc. For me that falling for each other, being torn apart and then HEA is pretty important for a romance novel. Just my two cents worth!

Hi Timothy

This sounder very cool. I have written two alien invasion romances. They are both steamy in parts, but not at the beginning where stuff is just being blown up and shot at. Would that be of any interest to you?

Also both have shirtless covers and I know that's not everyones cup of tea. Let me know what you think. Refusal will not offend me :)

thanks
Theresa

I launched my first book (a sci-fi alien invasion romance -  nice and snappy!) to pretty much crickets in September (getting the damn book out was enough). 

I'm planning the launch of the next in the series in December so today I put my first book baby up for a free run (I'm still practising with promo sites!)

I have promos on with Booktastik and Awesomegang.

I have no idea what I expected but I'm so excited to have broken 50 already!  ;D  I know they are free downloads but I am so stoked people want to download my book!

I've finally gone through too. I got an email in reply to my query telling me it was in review to check I was not violating their guidelines. Not sure if that was the nekkid man chest on the cover, but whatever, it's through now!

And can I just go off topic for a second and have a fangirl moment!
 
Gwen,  'Romancing the Beat' got me through the first draft of my first book after I struggled for months trying to sort out the plot/structure.   :-*

I'm still in review -  since Friday afternoon.

The irony is that I accidentally uploaded my book with no changes!  :P

but the f*cking picture I'll be posting is the one at the end of draft eleven-and-a-half when I just about hate my story and every plugged plot-hole it contains.


lol, that's me!

I've also been stuck since Friday after making small grammatical changes.
I'm new at this, I thought that was the norm!

Hi catlife,

When marked as a Dedication, the Table of Contents will follow. Currently, there is not a way to directly change this ordering. You can, however, affect the ordering by changing the type of your dedication from Dedication to Uncategorized. You can do that using the Convert To menu shown here:
https://help.vellum.pub/element-types/#convert-to

Changing the type will also affect the formatting of your Dedication, and will cause it to be listed in your Table of Contents. This may be more of a change than than you want, but we thought we'd offer it as a possibility.

Thankyou for getting back to me. That's really useful thanks!
Vellum is the most fabulous software I have ever used btw. You guys rock :)

Hello

I recently bought Vellum. It's amazing. After all the slow of writing my book it made the formatting fun/amazing!

I just wanted to ask if its possible to have the dedication after the ToC, so that if you flicked back from the first page of chapter one you would land on the dedication instead of the Toc?

It's  a minor issue and I couldn't see any way to do it on the help section and indeed maybe you can't!

Grateful for any suggestions!

Oh, thanks for all the detail, giving me lots of food for thought for launching in December :)

I write man chest sci fi romance but I have no subscribers, zip, so I'm not much use to you sorry!

Bookmarked to find out how well it goes, wishing you lots of happy readers!

Hi Lee

Many many congrats. Absolutely amazing.

As well as all your hard work you have managed to find one of those sweet spots that Chris talks about, with categories that have crazy low monthly new release figures.

 (Only 10 (!) new releases in your D and D category, only 20 in the R,P & F category, 73 in tv adaptations category). Do you think that helped to boost visibility of the book as it was easier to rank high in the sub cats?

Enjoy the ride now that your hard work is paying off :)

Thankyou 9 Diamonds, Caimh and Bards and Sages.

I am my own worst enemy at doubting myself. I shall make sure they realise my ARCs are a valuable commodity!

Thankyou all  :-*
