Project Publish Updates!
In the last two weeks, I have diligently published nearly forty short read titles. That is a lot of computer work. Even so, it has been a lot of fun. I met a dragon who gave me some very good advice, and I have dedicated the War Dogs stories to him. The size of your bookshelf does matter! For those of you who have been following my author walk from the beginning, Thank you. You know how difficult the road to learning how to publish and market my stories has been and hopefully you have laughed at my mistakes with me. For anyone who has stumbled over me recently, welcome to the dream. I sincerely hope you may become lost between the pages of a good book. I can honestly say that I believe that I have stumbled on a winning self publishing and marketing strategy that might work over the long haul. (No, I will never get rich. Consistent gas money does have an appeal to me though.) I can't recommend it over anything else I have done, but I do seem to have gotten to a point where some people do find my stories and at least try them on Kindle or buy a short read on occasion just to check me out. I also never claim to be perfect. I am 100% Indie all the way. A one man army who fights only for the dream if you will. LOL I still have a whole lot to learn, but I have decided to put my back list of stories out there to aid my efforts to reach a wider audience. So far it has been working.
Thanks to everyone who has supported me either by turning a few pages on Kindle or purchasing a title from Amazon. I am going to take a break from publishing for a day or two and focus on the marketing a tad bit. I have some video that I need to get uploaded to YouTube and Pinterest for War Dogs. It will be fully released by tomorrow!
Also, I guess I somehow wound up in Twitter jail because I follow people and do not unfollow people on there. It is confusing to me, and the explanation for why is a huge secret that only Twitter knows apparently. So if you have been trying to connect with me there, it might be a minute. I am available on Instagram and Facebook still and if you have not considered joining the dream group, I have been posting files and excerpts there quite a bit recently.
I am pretty sure you are tired of hearing me whine about reviews, but I must beg as an Independent author. So I will kneel in the dust and grovel at the feet of those who deign to read my stories and beg very nicely. Pretty please with sugar on top, if you read, be ever so kind as to leave a review. Authors need that help in order to continue to write quality stories. Thank you.
Welcome to Ophelia Kee Speaks. This is a blog chronicling my independent author walk. The journey into the dream has been a life-changing experience as I try to become a full-time writer and leave the professional world behind me. In my blog each day, you will find information on the ‘behind the scenes’ for writing contemporary adult fantasy fiction and paranormal romance stories set in the dream. I will speak on topics detailing with my writing, publishing, promotion, and marketing as well as social media dealing with my books, book trailers, book launches, book art, music, audio, and video, as well as shameless self-promotion. I am not an expert and am not claiming to be one. I am simply one writer offering a glimpse of my struggle to become a successful independent author. Thank you for considering my words.
