Writers' Cafe / Re: I'm a Published Author - Thank You!

Thanks for the warm welcome, Anarchist! I do have plans for a second book (and more after). While I was lurking, I wrote about 1-2 books (usually one) per year. The follow up is a not a direct sequel, but takes place in the same world as the debut.

In terms of marketing strategy, I am trying to utilize Facebook and AMS ads. But marketing is probably the biggest hurdle I am facing right now. There is so much I still don't understand and want to learn before I can feel confident. After launch day I just had this sinking feeling of, "Yikes, what do I do now?" when it comes to marketing. But we're all learning, right?
Congratulations on publishing your first book.

Now hurry up and get your second one out there. ;)

Then you put this first one on Instafreebie (or Bookfunnel if you choose that) and start building your email list.
You want as much control as you can over your marketing and having a list can help in that respect.
A lot of folks on this example promotion are writing in a similar genre and just starting out. You can do the same.

Good luck on your writing future no matter what you do, :D

Wanted to try the Word Add-on but it won't work.

Shows up under Word Options as a possible add-on -all you have to do is tick the box - BUT then says you have to be admin before you can add - and yes Amazon I am the admin :-X

Tried on old XP as well as well a new Windows 10 PC and same problem.

I don't have time to hold their software engineers hand - I'm going back to writing  :D
