Today, I share some good news: I had a PET scan on Wednesday and then we saw my oncologist. And no signs of malignancy. I’ll see him again in three months but as I’m now two years out of transplant, no more scheduled scans 🙂

I also talk about using Netgalley as an indie author: what my goals are in terms of reviews and reaching more readers and why I decided to put #TheLeftoverBride on Netgalley.

As a self-published author, I use Victory Editing co-op (for one title and one month) and have already received hundreds of request for review.

Also mentioned in this episode: TikTok, Instagram as an author and not knowing why some videos take off as well as IN DIESEM EINEN SOMMER (A SUMMER LIKE NO OTHER in German) getting hundreds (now probably at least a thousand) free downloads without me doing anything (I’m not sure why either). 

Don’t hesitate to ask me a question per email or record a question…

Ep. 62 – The ups and downs of self-publishing (including the words every romance author wants to hear…) A self-published author's diary

Within a few days, I had a few self-publishing ups and downs, including: hearing the words every romance wants to hear (during a pretty stressful day), losing a crown on one of my Vella stories, fangirling over Eloisa James and regaining a crown on said Vella story. Today I also talk about my dream of having Fear Me, Fear Me Not adapated for Lifetime or Netflix… And I have my first voicemail!!!!  Mentioned in this episode: Los Angeles Times – Meet 8 industry players behind Hollywood’s book adaptation boom: https://www.latimes.com/entertainment-arts/books/story/2021-02-11/meet-8-players-connecting-amanda-gorman-other-writers-to-hollywood Lifetime submitting script: https://support.mylifetime.com/hc/en-us/articles/216240478-Where-can-I-send-a-script-or-story-idea-that-I-would-like-to-submit- Happy Self-Publishing Moments on TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@aselfpubbedauthorsdiary/video/7093148769214172462?is_copy_url=1&is_from_webapp=v1&lang=en Leave me a voicemail: https://anchor.fm/elodie-nowodazkij/message Ways to help Ukraine: A few ways to help Ukrainians:  https://snyder.substack.com/p/a-few-ways-to-help-ukrainians?utm_source=url&fbclid=IwAR1tRHYwpS0z9XOtaMafpVuequlTEuRKcs74bEEpeCUAXHtPOardfnQe15k  List of charities to support Ukraine by subject: https://www.reddit.com/r/ukraine/comments/s6g5un/want_to_support_ukraine_heres_a_list_of_charities/  If you're in Germany: https://zez.am/act.now.by.klitschko  If you're in France: https://parrainage.refugies.info/  Ukraine Media Crisis Center How To Help: https://uacrisis.org/en/help-ukraine As always: Ask me a question (per email: authorelodienowodazkij AT gmail.com or by leaving me a voicemail: https://anchor.fm/elodie-nowodazkij/message)  Follow A Self-Published Author's Diary on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/aselfpublishedauthorsdiary  Visit my website: http://www.elodienowodazkij.com  I'm on TikTok: @elodienowodazkij and the podcast too: @aselfpubbedauthorsdiary — This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app — Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/elodie-nowodazkij/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/elodie-nowodazkij/support
