Ha! I read it! probably not till closer to the end of 2022. I wrote a story with no outlining whatsoever. It came out ok, but it was missing a whole bunch of things that make a story great. So I'm kind of starting over with a beat sheet (basically plot points & notes) so I won't forget anything and I can use most of what I already wrote,
Should take me a few months, and then I have to get it edited. Hopefully, I can get it out right after that. I'll post a free download here. All I ask is for an honest review on Amason
I explained a lot of this in a post on my site, and in an email if you sign up for my newsletter.
Oh! BTW Honest means good. All reviews should be good! I don't care if the book is a pile of doo, all reviews have to be good.
That is all,
The nice part is that the business has changed. You used to have to send out a million letters/emails to agents and publishers before (If you were lucky) you would get picked up by one of them. Then it would take months (up to a year) before you got published, and then you had to be lucky to sell your book.
Now places like Amazon & Apple books allow you to personally upload ebooks when they are ready. Paperbacks and Hardbacks are printed on demand, and you can't tell the difference if it was traditionallly published.
The cover artists, editors, and marketing are much more available also. You used to not be able to get that stuff unless you went through a traditional publisher.
The business of Authoring has changed. One thing that hasn't changed. People won't buy a book without reviews... GOOD REVIEWS!
Is that a heads-up that you're closing the thread?okay, yep.
hah! remember when we used to do that? You'd blather on in your 'tastic fashion (which I always enjoyed the peas out of), and then I'd, "yep".
Anyway, anyone who's interested, GO SIGN UP on Kinnyâchka's page (kenfair.me) . . . . cause this thread may or may not be here by the time he's publishing!
And I have an inkling . .. . just a hunch . .. . that good reviews would be a bonus.
Dunno, just hunchin'
I was just celebrating all the years of no chip on your cap . . .. is all I meant.Took me long enough ?
It's just a tiny chip...but still a chip.
And I am crushed !
A dot of crazy glue or clear nail polish perhaps ?
