it’s getting really exciting here. The freebie promotion weekend back in August, shifted a decent amount of books and brought some interesting feedback, for which I thank you.
It also brought an Angel onto the scene… someone prepared to stump up the money for a professional edit. Yes, I know there’s no such thing as a free lunch but the deal we worked out was acceptable to both; and I’m now on tender-hooks as I wait for the edit to pop into my in box. I’m interested to see what a 4th pair of eyes has done to this dyslexics work.
It’s been a busy weekend… scrub that: it is a busy weekend.
I’ve put the first book up free on a promo weekend, to boost the books profile and it’s working. I was sceptical but I thought: “hell what have I got to lose?” Nothing.
So far, it’s going well. People are giving the tale ago. They are are coming back positively. Telling me what I know ( that it needs a bit of a polished edit). Heck there’s only so far a girl can go on her own; telling me they’re enjoying it none the less.
Time of course will tell, but the promos doing what I want. It’s getting the book out there. It’s drumming up enough interest to get an offer of help with the editing, from someone whose writing I’ve admired for a long time. People are also starting to ask if there’s a 2nd one.
I may not be JK Rowling. I may not even be Sarah E Smith yet. But I’m now able to say : I’m an author (I think! 😉 )
