This week has passed by super fast, but the news brought has been immense (as per usual). The Turndog Tales is back and bringing some awesome tales with it.
Are you ready? Good, let’s do this:
Be Generous On Launch Day
My launch day is ever closer and I want to be generous with my giving. However, I’m not sure what to do just yet, but this post from Neal Abbott is a BIG help.
He comes up with some good ideas and showcases the value of generosity. What can you implement into your launch day, or any day for that matter. Reward your readers for being who they are. It’s the future.
Being Visible In An Invisible World
KDP Select can be great, but it can also bring much heartache. David Gaughran is a writer all indie writers should follow. It really is that simple.
The reason is for posts like this as he breaks down his personal experiences and provides tips galore to you, the reader/writer/confused author.
Design The Heck Out Of Your Book
Ryan Schiefe is a book designer, and this interview unearths some excellent points. I love design, but I’m a standard 7/10. This means I need help and guidance, and posts like this one offer it.
Should you design your own cover? Where should you turn to? What’s the right and wrong way to approach it? Read and discover some tips of the trade.
Brits In An American World
Some of my friends ask why I use American spelling (in my novel) and generally target the American market. The answer is that self-publishing is still a transatlantic success story, which means being English can be tricky – although still amazing 🙂
Catherine Ryan Howard discusses some of the pitfalls, and how moaning doesn’t help. It may be tricky being a Brit, but we’re still very lucky. This Post is a great reminder.
There’s Always Time to Write
Is 20 minutes enough to write a book? In itself no, but you’d be amazed what 20 minutes here and 20 minutes there can do.
Barbara O’Neal talks about fitting writing in a busy world and coming up with productive goodness. Time is tricky, and we could always do with more, but it’s there to be had. Will you grab it?
The ‘Bloody Hell, Really’ Post
Dear God Kobo, how on earth does this make sense. This post on the Passive Voice showcases the nightmare that is red tape nonsense.
E-books are great, but the time we can’t share them with our family is plain craziness. Come on people, get it sorted. Yeah, we all need money, but this is not how to treat real human people!
And that’s a wrap for another week. I hope you have an amazing weekend, and I hope to see you back on Turndog Millionaire next week.
Before you go, please have a look at my own posts from the past few days. Go on…you know you want to 🙂
