I'll give you insights into how to write flash fiction and use it to market your fiction books. Analytical insights in book marketing and developmental editing written in simple language with case studies for indie authors.
I’m working on a manuscript that, according to the author, was ‘dragging’, but she couldn’t figure out why. I went through it making notes of a few descriptions that disrupted the flow, but it wasn’t as bad as I thought...
How Flash works (or not) when there are non-human creatures, in an epic or high fantasy world with its magic system, or sci-fi stories featuring galaxies and other worlds?
There’s a lot of talk about using Short Stories as giveaways in exchange for the readers’ emails. This is not the best approach - as the person downloading your e-book may end up not reading your book.
*By reviewing other authors' books, you can showcase your own writing style.*
Let’s think about what a book review is…
It’s a rating of stars plus text. The rating shows whether or not we liked the book. The text contains a line or two that basically says, “Nice read.”.
Let me ask you this: What are you looking for in a review?
Author Bio is probably the hardest piece of content I’ve ever had to write. It required at least 5 revisions before I came up with something presentable.
During my struggles figuring out what kind of beast it is, I checked more than fifty best-selling authors’ bios and this was the first mistake I made. I stumbled upon a lot of authors who mentioned the titles of their series or how they won some writing contest.
Automatically, I assumed that you won’t have a chance to stand out in the crowd if you don’t have at least 3-5 books in a published series.
But is that really true?
To make your website functional you need at least two years. I worked hard and redid my own website several times until I finally found the answer to the question: What is an author's website?
So, what’s the purpose of the author's website, and what should be included in a functional author’s website?
