C.B. Cook Which status updates were they?

I don't remember this... but I know if you go to the little arrow next to your profile pic in the top right corner and click on "Edit Profile," you can change your notifications settings in the E-mails section. Not sure if that will help!


message 45: by Amanda

Amanda Aw, man, I'm going to try this here instead...

You were the one who figured out the comment notification settings, right? :P You know how I was saying I often don't get those notifications either? Well...it happened again...and now I can't tell if you replied. *facepalm* And on top of that I can't figure out how to get back to those status updates...so I'm trying here.

C.B. Cook Hey, Gabrielle! I'm definitely planning on doing some ARCs, probably mostly eARCs. I have to finish writing first, though! :D I'm hoping that I'll finish this month, but we'll see. Thanks for asking! It's comments like these that help motivate me. :D


Gabrielle Are you doing ARCs for Twinepathy? It sounds really cool, and I would love the chance to read it and review it!

C.B. Cook :D That makes me happy. ;) I don't think it really matters, but I would suggest reading Paralyzed Dreams first, since it's finished. That way you'd also see my writing improve instead of degenerate. ;)


Zechariah C.B., what would you recommend I read first? Twinepathy on your blog, or Paralyzed Dreams?


Zechariah You're welcome. :)


message 34: by C.B.

C.B. Cook Thanks! I'll think about that. :D


Zechariah Cool! :)

Possibly, but I think for the time investment (maybe an hour), if you charge about $5.99, and sell at least 5 or so, you'll have more than made back your time. And the more options on a product page, the more compelling sometimes. Just a suggestion.


message 32: by C.B.

C.B. Cook Yup! We actually had a self-published author come in to talk to the class, and she published a book on KDP right there in front of us, which was really neat.

Yeah, it does... I just think it would be hard to market as that, since it's so short. I'm planning on doing my next book as a paperback, though.


Zechariah Oh, and I saw that on Ask the Author, someone asked about Paralyzed Dreams being a paperback. Your book does meet the minimum length requirements for Amazon CreateSpace... :P


Zechariah Same... :P Although I may just get your book before that.

Nice, same, in regards to writing. Ah cool! :) And they recommended KDP?

I've been writing for as long as I can remember, and I learned about self-publishing through one of my creative writing teachers.

I'm very much interested in reading Paralyzed Dreams, myself. How did you get started publishing? I see you published through KDP.
