25 thoughts on “To Purchase my books

      1. I’m involved with writing two books at this moment – and it’s taking up a good deal of my limited brain. Plus I’m not very technical and am not sure how to go about things.
        I’ll get on to it.

      2. I think we are in the same boat more or less. I am fixing a novella for my first ever submission !!! Deadline is May 30. And two other manuscripts need to be fixed… And I am not tech savvy either. I loathe social media in general, but it’s like living on medication. Gotta do it or die. That’s basically my philosophy about it. And as a nice bonus I come across fun people, that part I like. So, let’s keep talking, no pressure. None of that is mandatory. And I will help however I can. Cheers!

      3. May 30th is my birthday! I reckon that’s a good omen! (not that I believe in omens)..
        All the things you said made perfect sense to me.
        I’ve had my head down writing and I don’t look up to market or try to get things placed. There are too many ideas in my head. It’s daft really.
        I set myself a target – get all my projects written to the highest standard I can. Get them edited and then look to the marketing and placement.
        You caught be slightly before I was ready. But I know that this is the time I need to do it. You have nudged me into action.
        The trouble is that I love writing and am obsessive and driven. The rest of the stuff is a chore – and one I’m not good at.

      4. Probably step #1. is to send the link to the book on kindle (or free pdf or whatever format you have) to your friends. Tell them that in the name of your friendships you need a few lines of review and tell them to enter those reviews on Amazon. That’s simple. You can do it in one email, just cc your contacts. Let’s start with Green.
        Step #2. Fix those tabulations in the manuscript. It should take a nice evening over a glass of wine. And some good music. When you are editing the book I was told it will be off line for about 12 hours once yo’ve done, so do all the edits in one swoop.
        Step #3. Once those are done, I’ll try to send the link to some of my subscribers and get some more reviews. How does that sound?

      5. That sounds excellent.
        I haven’t liked pestering my friends but I can see the need. I’ll get on to it tomorrow.
        I’m surprised about the tabulation of the paragraphs. I do not know what has happened there. My worry is that it is in the process of transfer to kindle. I’ll check on that tomorrow too.
        Thanks Ellie – you’re a star.

      6. Hi Ellie – I’ve just had a look through the document I sent in for publishing. I’ve been through it all and I can’t find any problems with the paragraph tabulation. Where did you see the discrepancies? I’m not sure what to do now?

      7. Yes, tabulation is a problem of transfer from your draft to Kindle. Meh. Hear it happens. Needs to be fixed manually. If you can, open your book on kindle and see what I mean. I’ll email you 2 random pages how they look only kindle.

  1. Hi there, Opher. I’m impressed with how prolific you are! My goal is to either traditionally publish or self-publish a book of mine during the upcoming year. Might you have any advice for an unpublished author such as myself? Thank you in advance for any counsel/thoughts you might provide!

    1. Tylor – I’m not sure that I can offer any great advice. I suggest you just go for it.
      I enjoy the act of writing and creating. I find it extremely stimulating. I think that is the first thing I would offer – be true to yourself.
      I am a bit driven. The ideas come and I write them out – so I would suggest you give full vent to your creative urge.
      Self-publishing is satisfying in that you can do exactly what you want but don’t expect to gain a huge audience. Few people actually buy the books. But there is huge satisfaction to be had out of holding something that has been conceived as an idea in your head and is now a tangible object in your hand.
      So I would say – do it! The satisfaction is in the creating but don’t expect much else.
      I have now written sixty plus books. Apart from my blog I do not promote them. My books are my babies.
      So Tyler – it depends what you want out of it?
      Oh – BTW – get someone who can act as an editor! You cannot be objective with your own work. It will need editing and re-editing and re-editing.

      1. That makes a lot of sense, and I appreciate your taking the time to relate your thoughts. I still have much to digest and ponder before I make any decisions. I do think I will be sending my book out to at least a few publishing houses, and if no luck, will contentedly self-publish anyway. In either case, I will have a physical result of my creative work. Having an editor also seems like a great idea. I do know some friends whom are writers. Maybe they’ll help me out a bit. Thanks again, Opher!

  2. Thought I’d stop by on one of my all-too-infrequent visits to other blog sites – must get out more, as they say! – and am delighted to see your varied back catalogue on display, with one or two new items I intend to browse. And referring to your comment above, it’s a good job somebody is having lots of ideas in these vacuous and pretty vacant times! 🙂
