Another one pops up! I guess this is part of the learning curve that every new author/self publisher goes through. With all of these questions swirling through my mind, I am so grateful for the internet and the answers that I have been able to find out online, but I am still feeling like I need more. I know I am still early in respect to finishing my book, but I feel like I should be looking for critique partners, beta readers, ect. So for some of you that are getting close to the end of your books, I am willing to spend the time now to beta read and do an edit/review of your book if we can trade and you will do mine when it is done. There are a couple of authors that I follow who have a pretty good thing going with other authors and that is really what I want to create. A strong support group of other authors. And until we have a good base of fans to support us, we are all we have (well except for family, but mine's not really into writing, character development, and word count).
One thing that I have been wondering about is publishing on Amazon UK. How different is the process, copyrighting, ect? And is there an Australia Amazon? I know that the royalty in the UK is like 35%, but just thought I would throw out some questions while I was here.
Oh, and what do you guys think of my working title, Descended in Blood? It is a YA book about vampires, and the heroine is a half vampire. I don't know if the BLOOD part would be too off putting for the younger readers? It isn't so much a horror as it is a Paranormal Romance. Thoughts?
I have set up a schedule for my writing that allows me to have the first draft of the book completed by the end of March. My goal for today was to write 500 words, which I got in 600. I have set 5,000 words for my weekend goal. If I could get a few extra words in everyday, then I can start the editing process sooner.
Thank you all for stopping by. Your support means a lot!
