    [Journey] Ranking A Site That Uses AI Generated Content

    Thank you so much for your response! The example you gave showed me that I wasn't utilizing search correctly (wasn't placing my cursor after the asterisk) and that I was being too extreme when analyzing competition. Using that example, I was able to find a good keyword after a few minutes. :)

    [Journey] Ranking A Site That Uses AI Generated Content

    I feel like I'm missing something with the alphabet soup method. Everything I search for has several sites with answers or potential answers on the first page. I've only found one question that had zero competition. I don't know if I'm expecting it to be too easy or if I'm overthinking things...

    Launching a new fiction series on Amazon Kindle

    It depends on the type of book it is. Some genres sell best when they're exclusive to Amazon and enrolled in Kindle Unlimited. Some do best wide. If you're going to sell on Amazon and Apple and Kobo etc, I think it's best to list it everywhere at the same time and apply for retailer-specific new...

    Launching a new fiction series on Amazon Kindle

    Nearly a year later and this series has been completed and I've started another in the same genre. I've made a profit but not as much as I expected. Taking my second series out of Kindle Unlimited (KU) and selling it on other retailers was a mistake in terms of overall income. I've heard hopping...

    Launching a new fiction series on Amazon Kindle

    I haven't updated this in a while. Sales on the first series were really low, so I put it to the side and started something else. I might revamp it later (maybe over Vella). I started a new series with a new pen name in the cozy mystery genre. Short books, so they're fast to write and cheaper...

    They're too short anymore.

    Launching a new fiction series on Amazon Kindle

    Last week, I released a Valentine's Day-themed short story as a reader magnet on SO and put it up on Amazon at 99 cents. It got so many sales that I had the #1 new release for shorts in that category for a while. Nice surprise. Might try again for Mother's Day.

    Launching a new fiction series on Amazon Kindle

    So, I have sold five more copies and had a few page reads, but that's it. FYI, I found out that publishing your newsletter too early in the morning can lead to unsubs. lol 7:45 a.m. seems to be the sweet spot for my readers. 12 p.m. and 3 p.m. resulted in fewer opens and 6 a.m. cost me a...

    Launching a new fiction series on Amazon Kindle

    I decided to release on Dec. 26 to try to take advantage of an influx of new holiday Kindle users. It seems like that plan failed. lol Some people are saying that reporting is off because of the holidays, but it looks like I sold 3 whole copies (including 2 preorders.) I'll be keeping an eye...

    Launching a new fiction series on Amazon Kindle

    Weird week. I got a ton of negative feedback on one of my covers, and then freaked out and designed all new covers, tested them in groups, got the okay and then ran a poll on my website and to my newsletter readers ... and they all preferred the originals. LOL So, a lot of wasted time and worry...

    Yeah, right now my Instagram is pretty silent. Thanks for the nudge.

    Launching a new fiction series on Amazon Kindle

    Biggest lesson this week? Put free resources to use. There are FB groups that focus on covers, blurb feedback, etc. This week I learned that my blurb was giving off a romance vibe due to how it was structured. I had several people say they would have skipped the book because the relationship...

    Thanks! I will check it out. Go for it, and let us know how it goes. :)

    Launching a new fiction series on Amazon Kindle

    Writing, writing, and writing. Now that the publication date for the first book is just a month away, I'm falling dangerously close to over-editing. lol Books 2 and 3 are shaping up nicely.

    Launching a new fiction series on Amazon Kindle

    Developmental edits are painful. I should have book 1 completely ready for release by next week though. I'm mainly focused on writing books 2 and 3. I created a FB ad aimed at preorders, but I'm on the fence about running it right now. People still seem really distracted by the election.

    Launching a new fiction series on Amazon Kindle

    Remember that short story I wrote as a reader magnet? Remember how I also put it up on Amazon for 99 cents? I've had a few buyers, and yesterday someone posted a 5-star review on both Goodreads and Amazon. :cool: I know bad reviews will happen eventually, but right now this feels pretty great...

    How I get writing jobs without using Upwork, SuperTasker, etc.

    These days, you can also find decent listings on LinkedIn and Indeed. Just search for "writers" with a location of "remote."
