So I’m finally getting around to watching the Scrivener instructional videos again. I’ve tried to do so over the years, but have always been working on a book at the time so it never worked out. This time I’m determined to at least get a basic working knowledge of the program so that I can write the next book (whatever that turns out to be) using the program. I’m tired of being buried in notes and file cards and pages of notebook scenes. I need to find a better way to keep track of all the information that doesn’t involve the use of paper.
Now that I’ve finished Linx, I have contacted a copy editor for GHOST HUNTER CHRONICLES: SOLOMON’S SEALS. The plan is to put it out in paperback. I will be releasing it on CreateSpace and Lightning Source because I want indie stores to be able to order it for future signings.
Given what seems to be happening with indie e-sales lately, I’m doing a lot of hard thinking about what I should do next. Initially, I’d planned to work on Atlantean’s Quest 5: The Dark King, but I’m not sure anymore whether that would be a good use of my time. It will get written. I’m not going to leave the book hanging. I am just not sure if it will be next anymore. I don’t seem to be the only one experiencing an ‘odd’ shift with their sales. I don’t know if this is a summer thing, an algorithm thing, or an over-saturation of the market. I suppose only time will tell on the latter two.
In the meantime, I’m going to work on streamlining my process. I guess it’s finally time to start contacting review sites. Any suggestions?
