Writers' Cafe / Re: Slow sales day on Amazon?

I'm just going to quietly slip in and say that I haven't gotten any sales yet either...I'm only at 8 for this novel in its debut month, so I am trying to keep my hopes from going one way or the other.

There is some small comfort in knowing that it's not just me.

Carry on.

Does 'until they pry the keyboard from my rigor mortis stiffened fingers' count?  No?  OK.
Well, at this time (1/20/14  6:54 pm EST) I have at least 35 projects lined up and I have the beginnings of maybe another ten in my head.  So...yeah, I'm going to be busy for a while.

Interesting, though, that Amazon has been doing this of late. I wonder what their goal is? To tempt indies?

They really want to tempt indies?  How about not double dipping.

But hey -- $5.22 and .68 pounds sterling is better than a kick in the gut.

Writers' Cafe / Getting the word out there...
« on: January 19, 2014, 07:45:21 pm »
I've finished the first novel and I am now trying to wrack my brain trying to get the word out there.  I've tried Facebook ads and Project Wonderful but I haven't noticed any huge effects.  Does anyone else out there have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Well, they didn't have volume 2 of Irredeemable, but I did get a couple of books on photography (might start making some of my own covers) and got a tripod for the camera.

That's it.  I swear.  Stop looking at me like that.  I can quit when I want!

There are a few shops still around that have a minimum purchase amount before you can use debit, probably to offset that fee.

They shouldn't be doing that.  I know that's a violation of the contract with the company I work for, and I'm sure that's an industry-wide standard.  If their fees are that high...maybe they should look into another processor?  :D

Thank you very much.

Writers' Cafe / Re: Could you write without a computer?
« on: January 16, 2014, 04:31:22 pm »
I could write as long as I had pencil and paper -- good luck in reading any of it.  I used to buy spiral notebooks and write stories in them turned around because I am a wicked, wicked southpaw.  I still buy little notebooks to write down notes.  My printing is neat, and my cursive can be read by some people.  I print my notes because I have a deal with a friend of mine that she gets my notes when I die (this water tastes funny...).

Ever since I got my first typewriter, I haven't really hand written rough drafts.  When I got my first PC back in the mid 90's, I have not looked back.  I don't think I could be as productive as I am now... well, relatively speaking when it comes to productive.

Soooo ....  what you're saying is ..... Irish coffee, or Red Bull and vodka?


I think you mean to say: "Irish coffee, and Red Bull and vodka."

« on: January 16, 2014, 03:35:38 pm »
You let one indie in, and the rest of the riff raff will be knocking on the door. Can't have that.   ::)
I think I am going to start doing that.  Knock on my friends' doors when invited and say "Riff-raff, sir."

Writers' Cafe / Re: Would Someone PLEASE Give me a Bad Review Already!
« on: January 16, 2014, 03:33:02 pm »
I'd love to have a review period.  Even one that was "This book is not fit to be torn apart to steady my wobbily table."  It would mean that someone hated it enough to submit a review.

Where are my female vampires? Where are my hot djinni? Medusa, selkies, kitsunes, harpies (hot, mythologically incorrect ones), dryads--WHY DO YOU NOT WANT MY MONEY?!

I'll get right on that, sir.

They don't have characters in their heads, talking to them and trying to tell them a story.

When I have characters trying to tell me a story, I'm a writer. When I have voices telling that the cat can read my mind and feels only shame for that knowledge, I'm a weirdo.

Would I be wrong in calling this "Necrobestiality"?  :D

Sold two paperbacks and four Kindle versions of my first novel!  One of them overseas, making me technically an Internationally Known Author.  ;D

Writers' Cafe / Re: KDP December report is up
« on: January 15, 2014, 10:00:51 am »
...aaaand nothing.  But I know that January is going to be my month.  Already sold four in the first half of the month and I am hopefully on track to get another book out by the middle of the year.  I need to get back into the "write like a meth-addled badger" mode.

I agree.
Yes -- I would like to be told privately so I can make the fixes and re-submit the work.

Writers' Cafe / Re: Is it always hard to start a new one?
« on: January 14, 2014, 07:34:49 pm »
I do love starting a new project. And thats one of my biggest problems! So many unfinished things laying about the house. Another idea comes up and it gets me all excited so I HAVE to work on it.
(This  year I've resolved to get stuff finished and out in the world)

Amen, brother.  I have no problems starting, but I have problems with staying on one story long enough to finish it.  I hope it gets easier to do the more times I do it.

The last thing I ordered from Amazon was Irredeemable, vol. 1 -- wow!  Going to get volume two when I get paid on Friday!  I highly recommend the series.
