Writers' Cafe / Facebook Verified Author Page
« on: April 23, 2019, 10:55:27 am »
Does anyone know if it's possible to get your Facebook author page verified if you use a pen name? Facebook requests some form of I.D. to prove you're you. But if your name on the I.D. is different, what do you do? Could you send them a screenshot of a book contract with your publisher or something that shows both your real name and your pen name?

Writers' Cafe / Bestseller List Most Difficult Months/Seasons
« on: February 02, 2019, 11:28:46 am »
I've read many posts where writers have said that in some months/seasons it's harder to make a bestseller list like USA Today, NY Times, or Wall Street Journal. I know that November/December is one of these, but does anyone know what the other months are? For example, is January a month where it requires double the sales to make a list? Or is there a lull after Christmas?

Writers' Cafe / Christmas Bookbub
« on: November 21, 2018, 02:51:45 pm »
Has anyone ever got a BookBub deal that ran over the Christmas holidays? If so, were sales better or worse than at other times of year? I have a Christmas novel that I was thinking of submitting for a deal over the holiday, but don't want to waste it if the returns at this time of year are generally lackluster.

Writers' Cafe / Facebook Ads Crisis
« on: June 18, 2018, 10:18:37 pm »
I had a sale on one of my books that ended on June 10. I had been running three Facebook ads. When the sale ended, I turned all of them off. Today, I went to Ads Manager to check something else and it says that I owe $500!! Apparently, Facebook has continued to bill me even after the ads were shut off. I'm in a complete panic. I feel as if I've been robbed. Has anyone else experienced anything like this before with Facebook Ads?? I don't know what to do. I reached out to Facebook through the ads contact form, but don't hold out a lot of hope for hearing back from them.   :(

Writers' Cafe / Barnes & Noble Nook Blurb Lost Formatting
« on: June 08, 2018, 01:27:41 pm »
I just switched from Draft2Digital to uploading direct to Barnes & Noble via Nook Press. I formatted my blurb like I always do (two header lines and two separate paragraphs) but, when it went live, everything was mashed together into one untidy run-on paragraph. I emailed Nook support but it's been 48 hours and I haven't heard back. Is there some trick to blurb formatting for Barnes & Noble? This was never an issue when I submitted through D2D.

Writers' Cafe / Nook Top 100 question
« on: June 05, 2018, 02:33:12 pm »
Does anyone know how the Nook Top 100 category at Barnes & Noble works? I have a book that's currently ranked in the top 30. I assumed it would be listed on the top 100 list, but it's nowhere on it.  :(

Writers' Cafe / Rankings going into a BookBub featured Deal
« on: May 30, 2018, 06:07:45 pm »
Hello! Does anyone have any advice about how high a book should be ranked in order to get the maximum benefit going into a Bookbub featured deal? Is it enough if your book is in the top 10,000 paid books on Amazon and Barnes & Noble? Or should it be ranked higher? I've read some threads from authors making a run at bestseller lists who advise getting the rank up in advance of the Bookbub, but I'm not clear on how high of a rank is sufficient.
