    I want to make a mailing list

    So I have been researching the do's and don'ts on mailing lists and wanting to create one but haven't found a good format to start with. Does anyone know of a good simple way to make this happen? Who provides a good mail service that allows blanket emails to be sent out? I'm a little bit at sea...

    Nightclans new edition

    Hi all, I have been working hard on updating the interior of my story Nightclans and since it has been heavily edited I decided it deserved a new cover too. Have a look and tell me what you think. :) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00UDKE69I

    Technical grammar question

    Hey all, I have been grinding away on editing and having my books edited for the last few weeks. It is why I have been so quiet, ten hour days are kicking my ass. Anyway, I have a question that I know you can all answer, this is something that is simple and yet my foggy brain isn't working on...

    The Chronicles of....

    Yeah I'm going to announce another pet peeve. I have been scrolling through the list of titles on Amazon and I would have to say 'Chronicles of' is probably the most common word used of all. So instead of bitching about the overuse of this word I have instead decided to pay homage to it. I shall...

    Keywords for your published works

    So I have been playing around with keywords for awhile and have been working on a generic formula to try and grab as much of the reading public as possible. Is this in fact the best way to go? It seems to me that if you put in a specific search word that will be unique to your work then who is...

    Types of heroes you hate in fantasy

    I was reading a thread the other day and forgot which one it was but one thing stuck with me so I decided to start a new thread on the subject. What hero do I hate? "A farm boy with a sword." Oh yes, some hick who digs up potatoes all his life somehow manages to not only be the hero but also...

    How do I rise above the background noise of a multitude of Authors?

    I decided today to have a look at other books on Amazon that are for sale by other indie authors that have similar sales ranks and genres to me. Let me say this, after previewing three books all I could say was holy crap! I had read the musings of others like Sneaky Burrito talking about the...

    Sales numbers and advertising

    So my book has been out there three months now and I have been advertising across Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr with mixed results. The first month reached approximately 10K people via a targeted campaign for book readers who like Fantasy. That netted me a total of 300 downloads of which the...

    Sales Rank on Amazon and what it means

    So I have been watching my ranking on Amazon to gauge my monthly sales there before getting the actual sales numbers back through Lulu.com and I realized something curious about all this. With my free book Nightclans I have seen it go up and down rather dramatically but considering it has...

    Okay so now I have a webpage

    I was chatting with Intensegravity a few days ago and he put me on to a very good tutorial on webpage creation. I followed it though (seven hours in total) and totally rebuilt my webpage and am now proud to offer it's existence to you all. It probably could handle a tweak or two but being a...

    Okay it is time, strap on your sword and raise your shield

    Well I have decided to put it out there, give you all the opportunity to have a look at my work and see what happens, I don't know why but I have really feared doing this, though if I am to move forward and hear some honest opinions then I am going to have to bite the bullet. So here it is my...

    Posting a short novel on Best Fantasy Books

    I have been wondering, would anyone be interested in seeing short stories posted in full on this forum? Is it viable? Would anyone bother reading a whole story on here? I am curious to see if people would be excited about it and if the administration thinks it could be done too? Maybe have a sub...

    Well guys and gals, I got my sales figures back for the month of August on my novel Nightclans on Amazon. There has been 320 downloads of the free novel and I am wondering, is that a good start?

    Always, ALWAYS set a book aside after writing it

    So after self publishing my first big novel called Angels Blood I decided to write a prequel short story to the main novel as a free ebook for marketing purposes. It is its own self contained book and at 37 000 words isn't a bad read at the price. So I did that and in all the excitement gave it...

    Ebook Publishers, what have your experiences been?

    As any self published author would know having a good publisher that can not only upload and approve your book in a timely fashion but get it to distributors quickly too is a very desirable thing. But also there has to be other factors involved too, like reliability and ease of use of their...

    "Back Blurbs" or "What I wish I could do as well as I do the rest of the book."

    I was reading some of the comments on another thread of mine and a comment made me think about this. Writing a spiel for the back of your book that not only encapsulates the story but makes it exciting and desirable to read too has to be one of the hardest things to do for an author. I find it...

Enchanted blah blah blah Dragon this dragon that Mist+whatever Star+whatever Lords of whatever Etc etc...
