March 22 2017 Editor Assistance Newsletter
First, a reminder we're having an Editor Chat tomorrow, Thursday, 3/23, at 10am EST. This is early for some of us and late for others :). Please send me your gmail.com email address if you'd like to participate - we do this through Google hangouts. You can do it via text only, voice, or video, whatever you wish. We do these in PJs so feel free to do video with your hair in curlers :). We are casual! It's about answering questions and getting help.
Mused is live! I'm sending out the newsletters in chunks so as to not overwhelm the server. Feel free to share the news with family and friends! The issue looks gorgeous :).
I've been talking about ACX with a number of you who have books. ACX is Amazon's free audible book creator system. You load up your book, narrators audition for you, you choose one, and then you do a royalty share with them. When the book sells, you each get half of those profits. It means there is NO up front cost to you the author. It's a great way to reach an entirely new market! The books go up onto Audible.com, Amazon, and iTunes. For example you can see my first book in my zoo mystery series now has an audible version -
it was wholly free for me to have that done. I loaded up my book, I listened to a bunch of auditions, I chose one I liked, and then she recorded my book for me.
I have some promotion codes so you can listen to it for free to see how this works. Let me know if you're interested in trying one out. I definitely recommend that everyone who has books (except image-heavy books) look into the ACX system.
Just in case emails got lost during the Great-Email-Disaster-of-2017 with my server, if anybody is still waiting on social networking books, just let me know and I'll gladly send them out. I have books on:
* Google Plus
I can send PDF (generic), EPUB (itunes), or MOBI (kindle) format files. I would definitely recommend having Facebook and Twitter set up if you don't have those two basic ones done. The amount of free marketing you can get is just staggering.
Have a great week!
