Ep. 40 – Keeping track of indie author conferences, updating newsletter landing pages and the writing high … A self-published author's diary

Today, I talk about keeping track of indie author conferences as I completely missed the Romance Author Mastermind conference. it does require an invitation but I only saw talks about it after it happened (or while it was happening) so making sure I'm adding the link to it to my favorites. I also mention the 20booksto50k conference and Inkers Con.  During the week, I also updated my author newsletter landing pages to make them less convoluted and I'm currently experiencing the very fun writing high of starting to write a story I've been thinking about for several months now.

Episode 39 on Spotify

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).

Episode 36

Today, I share with you what I’ve done each day to increase my royalties: one step at a time.

Between updating #TheLeftoverBride epilogue, starting to format another bilingual book, putting one of my books as perma-free and running a free promo on another book who is currently in KDP select, I am making progress. 

Another topic I’m talking about today is dealing with feeling inadequate or not “as successful” as an indie author because those are feelings many of us have at one time or another.

And a reminder that success isn’t a pie and that learning from other indie authors as well as remembering what our goals are is oh so important.

Episode 35

Today, I am doing a “lessons learned” recap for my latest book release as indie author. #TheLeftoverBride has been out for a bit less than a month and while, of course, a lot of readers will read it and smile in the coming weeks, months, years, decades… there are a few things that I will do differently with my next release and things that, I think, have worked very well for me.

So, I’m detailing the top 3 mistakes I’ve made for that release (which turned into the top 5 or so) and then the top 3 things (which turned into the top 4 or 5) I’ve done very well when self-publishing #TheLeftoverBride.

I also talk about what I’m planning to do for the next release and about turning 2 (my stem cell transplant was on October 7th 2019 so I am two for my second birthday).

Episode 34

Today, I am talking about my new process for getting #TheLeftoverBride to the French-speaking market, explaining why I don’t translate my own books. After all, literary translation (and all types of translation) are an art. I dig a bit deeper into why I am “wide” on the French-speaking market. More than 15% of pre-orders are currently on Apple & Kobo. And I’m about to set up my pre-order on Google Play.

I’m also setting up my calendar and my upcoming projects and trying to find one thing to do each day to help my royalties. 🙂

Today, I share why the Chemical Engineer was right and how I didn’t listen to him but listened to L. Penelope. 🙂 It’s related to the formatting of the #TheLeftoverBride title and how to make it more “searchable”.

I also answer questions from Sam (on Instagram) who asked: what was the hardest part about writing #TheLeftoverBride? I added the hardest part about self-publishing it…

I go more into details about:

  • The revision process (cutting and reworking the beginning)
  • Deepening and adjusting the character arc for Ryan
  • Writing steamy scenes, ensuring lots of emotions.
  • Managing expectations…

Next week, I’ll talk about book translations/marketing, don’t hesitate to ask me a question per email or record a question…

Episode 31

Today, I go back and forth between being “done-done” and “just one more tiny change”. Those are pretty much the jitters before publication as #TheLeftoverBride releases next week… https://books2read.com/TheLeftoverBridePodcast

I also discuss my next projects, talking about time management, planning and more.

And I added the bonus episode at the end of the episode: the article I’ve written for the Ulman Foundation entitled: “Because Sometimes You Just Need To Ask About a Dog…” I’ve decided to read this article out loud in case it can help someone. You can find more information about the Ulman Foundation here: https://ulmanfoundation.org/ Also mentioned in this episode: September is also Blood Cancer Awareness Month and if you’d like to find more information about blood cancers or find support: the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society has both (https://www.lls.org/)

Ep. 40 – Keeping track of indie author conferences, updating newsletter landing pages and the writing high … A self-published author's diary

Today, I talk about keeping track of indie author conferences as I completely missed the Romance Author Mastermind conference. it does require an invitation but I only saw talks about it after it happened (or while it was happening) so making sure I'm adding the link to it to my favorites. I also mention the 20booksto50k conference and Inkers Con.  During the week, I also updated my author newsletter landing pages to make them less convoluted and I'm currently experiencing the very fun writing high of starting to write a story I've been thinking about for several months now.
