On the podcast today, I dicuss going wide with my audiobooks: changing their ACX exclusive status to non-exclusive and bringing them to more e-retailers and libraries via Findaway Voices.

On ACX you can now do so after 90 days. And Findaway Voices has a template which you can just copy and paste. In addition, I talk about some market data I found in the US and in France about the audiobook market. I also refer and quote from an interview on audiobooks with Nana Malone. She also talks about her writing process and being herself a book cover model (including her own at some point) because there was no/not enough pictures of dark-skinned Black women to represent her characters on covers. And then I go a bit deeper into bringing my French audiobooks to the French-speaking audiobook market.

When it comes to struggles and smiles in my writing and self-publishing week: it includes the roller coaster of emotions that is sending the first 1/3 of #TheLeftoverBride to my critique partners. I’ve been hard at work and am currently polishing the rest of the novel but it is a lot of feelings. 🙂 And more!

Trying out a new book review strategy and SO MANY emotions about the release of #SweetsForLove A self-published author's diary

Today, I share with you my new (to me) strategy to get advance book reviews, using TikTok, Instagram (and relying on my newsletter which I've always done) and contacting readers from Netgalley who have reviewed a previous book in the series and who mentioned they'd be interested in contacting with me. The first #SweetsForLove reviews are raving! 🙂 Oh and you can get your own copy here: https://books2read.com/u/3Gwzpa In addition, I have created a #SweetsForLove Bingo 🙂 (bit.ly/SweetsForLoveBingo) and I have a #SweetsForLove Team (Facebook group and discord channel). And I'm also explaining why this release week is *very* emotional (in a lot of ways). I'm pretty calm about the release itself but knowing my book touches readers and makes them smile is … an amazing feeling. And I may be slightly reflective right now.
