Writing My Books
Regular readers will know what I’m like by now – if I’m not writing my books or talking to you like this, I’m reorganizing my files or trying to improve them, but writing my books has to take priority.
So, I haven’t been posting much recently because I’ve been busy with Behind The Smile 6, but after completing chapter six yesterday, I have come to an impasse, therefore I turned to amalgamating the first five of my Megan Series into a compilation.
This will probably be called ‘Megan the Psychic Teenager’, and will make it 55,000 words long. It is a different format from the single books, which I had hoped people would buy on a monthly basis (and still do 🙂 ). They will still be available singly as they are written, but will also be compiled into a volume once every five months. It will allow those who have come to the series late to catch up more quickly.
Please let me know if you think that this is the right way to go.
I have content for the first four volumes, and writing two more novelettes will give me a fifth.
Taking about writing my books, NaNoWriMo 2015 is just around the corner. It starts on November 1st, so if you are planning a book, bear it in mind. For anyone who has always wanted to write a book, NaNo is the ideal time, you will never get more encouragement and support, and you will make friendships locally that could last forever. This will be my third NaNo and I am looking forward to it immensely, although I don’t know yet what I will be writing about.
I enjoy writing my books and am lucky that I have that I have twenty-four hours a day to devote to it, minus a few hours sleep, because my wife, Neem, takes care of me so well.
Oh, one last point! I realized today (only because something someone asked me a month ago has sifted through my brain), that I have a massive advertising opportunity on my blog. Every page carries seven ads for random books out of my bookshop, with 90-100k pageviews a month, that means about 700,000 books are shown on my site free every month!
Did I say free?
Yes, free to those who have bought a classified ad in my bookshop, which costs $5 a month for one book, or $15 for four books for two months, or less than $2 a month a book!
Check it out if you have books or artwork to sell.
All the best,
