Una Tiers (unatiers) | 140 comments Much of what I learned about marketing came from other authors. This is a place to talk about an idea that worked well. You can also ask questions or try to flesh out half baked ideas.

Una Tiers (unatiers) | 140 comments Can we start with editing? I use NaturalReader.com it has a complimentary version and often helps me find repetitive sentence starts or overused words.

Hey Michael, what is one of your editing methods, gems or tricks of the trade when you write?

Michael Burton | 2631 comments My editing trick I have up my sleeve is very unique. You can't find it online, in a book, on your computer. It is called my wife. She is the first source of my editing process,

Thanks for the question Una,

Una Tiers (unatiers) | 140 comments Calling all authors! What is one item you deem necessary in a book release (liquor and cake are given).

For me, I like to have a few reviews, via ARCs, so when the book goes live it isn't lonely.

Readers, what attracts you to a new book?

Thanks,

Una Tiers

A well-organized pre-order strategy, so that when the book goes live, it’s got a good rating (and yeah, 5-10 fast reviews!).

Do you use ARCs? If you're an e-Author, do you create a pdf to share?

Best,

Una Tiers

Pete Morin | 123 comments I share whatever file type a willing reader prefers. I might see only a 50-60% response rate, though.

Una Tiers (unatiers) | 140 comments Pete: 50-60% of what? Review requests?
Best,
Una Tiers

Pete Morin | 123 comments Yes, Una.

Maybe half of those (complete strangers, anyway) requesting a review copy follow through. Occupational annoyance.

I’ve pretty much quit sending them to blogger/reviewers.
