I have a very unique promotion strategy, but my sales on my little books are few so far. I hope one day to describe to this community my unique strategy with pride.
Writers' Cafe / Re: What Music Do You Listen to While You Write?

Classical music on the radio. It helps to create a safe and creative environment. Putting it on from the radio makes sure that I don't have to worry about lists or anything.

Well, this has all been most enlightening.
The Book Corner / Re: Best/Worst Book to Movie and Vice Versa
« Last post by bjscript on Today at 12:02:39 AM »
A movie based on The Tin Drum seemed like four chapters of a book with dozens of chapters.

Nothing wrong with movie, it just wasn't the novel.

When I was young I thought Slaughter House Five made a very successful translation to a movie, but I'm not sure what I'd think today.

Writers' Cafe / Re: How important is social media to an author?

Worth noting that there are many ways to use social media successfully. Hugh Howey seems quite happy putting everything up there, including his current location on whatever island he's on, or essentially photos of his bare ass (let's be honest, its a good ass). He basically never plugs his writing at all. Yet he has super high engagement.

Mark Dawson on the other hand has a way more salesy type of thing going on, and that works out really well for him too. Other authors I'm sure do other things are get value from it.
If I had an... uhhh, boat... like Hughe's, I'd bare it on facebook too. Just not in front of my kids. Boy did they get a shock looking over mums shoulder at that

Writers' Cafe / Re: My new Lou Harper cover

I think it came out good, and Lou was a pleasure to work with.

I like that a lot.
What's annoying me right now is that I have an audiobook newsletter. I run King Sumo Giveaways to that group. I don't need codes to gift an audiobook as the prize -- I can and have bought gifts using my own credits or cash -- but now I CANNOT do that in the USA where 90% of my listeners live.

I'm screwed.
According to the email from ACX (when I asked if there was a way to make the codes title specific): "We hope to provide specific promotional codes in the future as their purpose is to direct publicity to your title."

Of course, that was back in January of 2014, maybe their programmers are working on it.  :D

Posting has accelerated beyond my ability to keep up, so I'm going to lock this for a time in order to read. Also rather in need of a pee break. Ahem.

Please note: I am repeatedly removing explicit accusations of lying. Such accusations are not in keeping with KBoards's forum decorum, and members who keep making them will find themselves unable to post here. By all means, make claims and provide evidence for them (though Rebecca, I think I have your Fb group address memorized, at this point, so further mentions of it are probably not necessary). Members can decide for themselves whether apparent discrepancies are due to obfuscation, confusion, lying, or whatever else.

ETA: Okay, reopening this thread. This is an important matter, and there are strong feelings on all sides. Let's keep it as professional as possible.
I saved The Inhabitable Boy.  Looks like I just missed your first run at this.  Welcome back to the carnival!
It IS a carnival too! This time I've promised not to drive my family crazy obsessing haha. Twenty-nine days to go... 😆
