So... I found out about a little thing called X-ray on Kindle. I spent the last three days updating and enabling X-ray on all of the books in the series and the prequel. Draoithe: A Pack Forms was easy, but the number of characters that must be identified got serious after that. So I wrote out all the character descriptions and saved them to google docs for future references. It will likely seem silly to many who have published before, but I have to somehow find time to write and learn all about Indie publishing, promoting, and marketing.
I am still working on building the social media stuff. I'm still not sure if I have connected this page to my Pinterest account correctly, and I can't seem to figure out how to add my rss feed to Instagram or publish the blog there either. That must be learning for another day. I may yet get this all worked out.
I have stumbled upon some really great stuff in my quest to just write. Awesomegang is really awesome! I have a lot more Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest followers now too. (Don't hesitate to spread the word.) I'm still trying to figure out all the ins and outs of my publisher rocket, but numbers 'ain't my thang'. I need more down time to watch more You Tube tutorials. I did set up the You Tube account for the book trailers. Hopefully, Draoithe: A Pack forms book trailer will be out by Christmas. Cross the fingers.
I am still on track to release Draoithe: Fire and a Gryphon by Thanksgiving. It's and odd number so it will be free for a limited time. Check back later for exact dates on that. I also still want to release the prequel Draoithe: Synner and the Sainte for only $.99 at that same time.
Time to get back to work. I have to pack up the last of my stuff and reserve the Uhaul. Just a few days left for El Paso. Longview awaits!
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.
