You know, here's the thing about Indie Authors and the rest of the indie clan. We're everywhere. I've met so many amazing people on this journey that I couldn't begin to count them all. What amazes me the most is that on the whole, everyone wants the other to succeed. I saw this first hand at my book release party, and again during NanoWriMo. The support given to authors by others in the business was astounding.
Wow, it's been a hot minute since I've updated, hasn't it? Well sit back, grab a Pepsi or your beverage of choice, and let's fill each other in on our shenangians, shall we?
Today, I took a big step, one that I didn't think I would actually do. When I first started the publication process, I felt that the more places that had my book, the more exposure I'd get. Sadly, I have not been getting much interest anywhere else. On Smashwords, all the downloads were free downloads from coupons for reviewers.
Many have expressed interest in how I do my contests, giveaways, and newsletters. All of them are ran on JotForm.
Jotform really is great. It's easy enough that us code-challenged people can figure it out. The form designer is very intuitive, which makes it easy to add and delete different options and text. The thing I love best is honestly too hard to pick, so I've done a quick list.
My father is one of the most brillant men I know. So when I have a random question, he and my best friend are the two I turn to. So yesterday, I had an idea and turn to him. "Dad? I need a lightweight metal that could be pre-fabbed and would resist rusting in a rainforest environment. It needs to be able to be kept cool and contained too. Oh, and be elevated off of the ground."
