Review My Poetry / POETRY BETA READERS NEEDED
« Last post by LOLAAIDRIEN3 on October 02, 2019, 04:15:10 PM »
Hello Everyone,

I am new to the publishing world and am attempting to get my feet wet by first self publishing a poetry book, while I work on finalizing my short stories & novel. I have compiled 43 poems into 6 sections. Total word count for the book is 9,461 but I will divvy up sections between beta readers & you can decide if you'd like to read more or not. These poems are about sex, friendship and struggle with self. They can be quite frank so if language or content needs to be of a clean nature for you, then this is not for you. I'm looking for 20 beta readers who can assist me, from head to toe, on any edits (including if an entire poem or section should just be erased) that may need to be done with this compilation of poems before moving on to a professional editor.

Thank you all in advance! XD

The Writers Circle / Re: An analogy from Richard Branson

Perhaps the quote below from Richard Branson is something we should all consider when it comes to writing and book sales.
http://www.linkedin.com/today/post/article/20131028225753-204068115-my-first-job-breeding-budgies-the-business-and-birds-took-off

My introduction to the working world came from my mother, who was always using her limitless imagination to come up with new business ideas. She managed the whole process herself, from developing the ideas, to crafting the products, to making deals with distributors and selling goods herself. One of her more successful ventures was building and selling wooden tissue boxes and wastepaper bins in national stores.

She was resolute, and taught me if an item didn't sell, you try something else. I was always helping around the house and picked up a lot of useful tips without ever realising it at the time. I made plenty of mistakes and was able to learn from them rather than spend time fretting over every little error. There was never enough time for that, it was always on to the next adventure! 

I really do enjoy reading Branson he always inspires me.

Self-Publishing Central / Re: I have joined the kindle self publishing revolution!!

Welcome to the world of self-publishing on Amazon! If there's one online income source I like talking about most, it's definitely self-publishing on Amazon. I'm normally a pretty modest guy but I've gotta say… I rock at self-publishing!

I've increased my monthly income from nothing to nearly $2K in less than three years just from selling books on Amazon... and I was making a grand a month within a year.

The post on how I make money self-publishing has been one of the most popular on my personal blog so I wanted to update it with everything I've learned over the last few years. I've included updates on how to turn your books into a passive source of income and how to make the whole process easier.

Ok, so $2K a month isn't huge money but it's getting there and it's growing very quickly.

If you want to learn more about making money with Kindle then check out "KindleBucks.com" which is the #1 Amazon Kindle Training out there.

I can't recommend it enough. That's how I got started almost three years ago.

Review My Work / Re: The Keep, Chapter 1
« Last post by Froggo on October 02, 2019, 04:14:55 AM »
I think your prose is pretty darn good it kept me reading. Some editing and cutting needed to make the pacing better.

Let's see lots of things I liked and think work well:
 •I like the all half-brother/sibling thing going on.
•I like that Adan was abandoned and sent to be a healer. That's cool. I'm sure that'll come into play.
I like that it seems the brother's death's might not be accidents. Especially when it gets to talking about the youngest brother who died recently.
•I mean the beginning seems to pack a lot of things to expect further into the story. Dyanimics with brothers and father set up. Mystery: how did he get hurt? Maybe I just missed it, but like how Adan for so hurt.
•prose: like when he unveils the dagger (or was it a knife?). There was something about the soft, late afternoon light. Like I remember that.

Anyways I just want to say keep up with your writing, whether it's this or other projects.
