    BTS039, Writing Multiple Books at Once, Low Budget Promotions, and Multiple Streams of Income

    For some reason, I put off sharing this author diary update because I believed I didn't do that much writing, and I was a little embarrassed. Well, I was partly correct. As I look back over my completed tasks on ToDoist and the notes on my daily writing habit spreadsheet, I realised that my assumption was incorrect. And, I did get some writing done during the first four months of the year. But more on that later. I set Missing to free and scheduled various low budget book promotions during February and March, and I experimented with Facebook Ads with some surprising results. In this show, I share my download statistics, cost per click and click-through rate when these statistics are available. Also, during this period, I started experimenting with multiple streams of income in my author business. I share the thing I've tried and the thing you need to consider when you're just starting.
     
    So stay tuned for all of this and much more.

    BTS037, Writing to Market, Book Formatting Services and Hiring an Alpha Reader on Fiverr

    BTS037, Writing to Market, Book Formatting Services and Hiring an Alpha Reader on Fiverr

    After much deliberation, I come to terms with my struggles with the notion of whether I should continue to write more books in the James Lalonde series. Which leads me to announce that I'm letting myself write another series in a different sub-genre alongside writing the James Lalonde series. I guess the short version of that is I'm writing to market. Yay! In other news, I've had another ah-ha moment about my first book, and that moment has led to another change to my story. It was another one of those decisions I'd been struggling with because I enjoyed writing the book so much. This month, I added an income stream to my author business, and I discuss the steps I took to create the service. While we're on the topic of business-related things, I hired a great alpha reader from the most unlikely of places.
    So stay tuned for all of this and much more.

    BTS035, Developing a Writing Habit After Months of Struggling

    I’m super excited to announce that I’ve finally developed a writing habit after months of struggling. And in this episode, I share the tips that I believe helped me to achieved this goal. During August, I start chasing reviews for Missing on the Amazon US store. In terms of writing, I started working with an alpha reader and I discuss what I’m doing differently this time around. While listening to a podcast, I discovered a new service, Buy Me a Coffee which is a fun way to tip a creator, and I go into the various ways that I’ve implemented this into my author business.
