Writers' Cafe / Scenes with non-POV characters
« on: October 23, 2020, 02:05:11 pm »
I have two POV characters in my psychological drama / crime mystery novel.
How can I handle the scenes where none of the main characters are present? These scenes are important in terms of information and also to let important side characters have their say.

Can it be written as a "camera POV" i.e. simply describing what's happening without getting in any of the character's head?

Writers' Cafe / Author Takeover

Does anyone have experience doing AT on social media platforms? How does it usually look like?

Just noticed this change. Now if you use Canadian or Australian account you need to create an additional account on in order to get access to Kindle books.
Looks inconvenient to me as I'm in Canada. >:(
On other hand, from the author's perspective, it will help to have all reviews in one place, if only this changes won't turn off e-book readers at all making them use other sources like Kobo.

Amazon KDP doesn't provide an option to create a hardcover edition. Is there an option to use third party service while my book is in Kindle Select?

Writers' Cafe / Reviews on different marketplaces
« on: August 26, 2020, 11:43:42 pm »
Hi everyone,

I published my debute novel, a mystery & adventure Braziliada couple days ago.
I've got my first review on UK marketplace, but it is not shown on others.
Is it a lag of Amazon and the reviews from all marketplaces should be visible on each of them?

Hi everyone!
I'm brand new to all this and a bit overwhelmed   :)
I am a mechanical engineer and an aspiring author who just published my debut novel on Amazon
