For the next five days, I have put the first two books in my Author’s Essentials books FREE on Amazon. You can download these both wholly for free now. I suggest doing that before Amazon ends that free period.
Please share the news with any family and friends.
Here’s the link for book 1 on writing and designing the book: https://www.amazon.com/Writing-Designing-Successful-Book-Experienced-ebook/dp/B01MRRVFLB/
Here’s the link for book 2 on designing the cover:
I am doing this as part of a push to begin offering more services online. Up until now I’ve only helped people via the in-person library seminars. That is nice, but some people end up driving an hour or more each way to get to one. Also, there are many people who can’t attend due to scheduling issues or they are just too far away.
Here are the two options I’m trying out.
First is Patreon. I will be offering various options here for readers to support my writing and for writers to get personalized one-on-one support with me, via email or phone or Skype, to make progress on their writing, publishing, and marketing. I’m new to Patreon, so please let me know if you use that or if you’re able to help me test it. I am still in the ‘review’ stage so all the options are not yet live.
Second is Twitch, which is a live video streaming service. You will be able to log on and watch me, live, as I talk about writing, editing, publishing, and marketing a book. You can type in questions live for me to answer right there for you. I’m new to Twitch, so I’d like some guinea pigs (ahem, writers) to test this out with me. Please let me know if you’re willing to give this a try!
My next free in-person seminar is this Tuesday, June 4th at the Sutton MA library from 6-8pm. The focus of Tuesday’s seminar is on all forms of publishing. Traditional publishing. Small press publishing. Self-publishing. I’ll go step by step through screens to show how it works. Come on out if you’re free!
Let me know if you have any questions!
