Back to School Sale for eBook Lovers & Other Updates

Lots of exciting things to share today.

First... the Chasing Memories eBook is part of the Indie-Licious Back to School Sale. There are a lot of  other great titles to choose from as well, so pick up as many or as few as you'd like. But hurry, the sale ends 8/18.

Check out the other amazing choices here (there are even a couple of free ones).

Second... the Chasing Memories blog tour started today. I'm equally excited and nervous about all the upcoming reviews. Most of all, I believe reviews are an excellent opportunity. I will be taking notes about the reviewers' input--if there's a character that isn't working, if there's a plot point that they loved/hated, or any other comments I can use to make Books 2 and 3 better.

And it's Monday. Time for my A Round of Words in 80 Days (ROW80) update.

Write. Write. Write.

My goal on vacation was to write. But every time I sat down to write Book 2, I realized I had plot points to figure out. First up, nailing down my prophecy. I keep changing my mind. ARGH! Lots of note taking. And I know I'll be affected by what the reviewers say throughout this blog tour.

How much do you consider readers' comments when writing your next book?

Market Chasing Memories

Staying on top of that, and it's very time consuming.


Need to catch up on my #IWSG reading and commenting.

And a huge thank you to all the lovely commenters on my ROW80 inspirational post: Plan It, Ink It, Believe It. I was out of the country when it posted, and I finally read the feedback this morning.

Hope everyone has a great week!!

I read your post over on the RoW 80 site. Very nicely done. I love my Indie buds, too!

As far as reviews/comments/opinions go, listen to them, but don't become overwhelmed by them. What one reader loves about a book, another hates, and so on. Everyone takes away something different. You can't please all of the people all of the time; just some of the people most of the time :)

Hurray for the blog tour starting! I hope you get lots of excellent feedback and ideas.

As for writing on your vacation, while it may not have gone how you thought it would, it sounds like you got lots of good notes and ideas that will let you move forward. Sometimes you have to pause for planning and working things out.

Keep up the great work!

All the best as you work on Book 2, market, and blog. Never a dull moment for an author, huh? :)

Mulling over the plot should count. After all, the characters need a solid plot before you let them loose to "play."

Have a good one, Tia. TTFN

Welcome Back! :)

Yay for the start of the blog tour!
Note taking counts as writing in my book. Lol!

As for considering reader comments when you write, I don't think you can ever get enough people to agree on the same thing. Even when people love a book, they love it for different reasons.

Hope the blog tour is going well Tia. Mine starts next month, too. I'm expecting 12 reviews and I'm terrified, but like you say, it's an excellent resource for improving our writing. All the best.
