message 1: by Jordan (new)

Jordan Robinson | 13 comments Hello guys, two posts in one day... whew this is nerve-racking :D

Anyway, I am an aspiring fantasy (for the most part) author and I'm working on building up my content so I can join the rest of you in the published world. For now, I have some beautiful shorts here: https://eternityacts.wordpress.com

Also, I wanted to practice publishing so I wrote 4k word short definitely not to market (unless you like elves being nsfw, then click here here lol). It's a good thing I did practice because I made a ton of mistakes :')

I look forward to hearing from you guys, you seemed so kind from the outside looking in.

Well, she's the one everyone thinks is the meanest, but I'm the one who wields the club for bashing purposes.

message 20: by Jordan (new)

Jordan Robinson | 13 comments Okay, guy! While working on my novel, I've been posting short stories to gather something resembling an audience on my WordPress. Recently, I realized I could publish that and offer it free so I could finally get an Amazon/Goodreads author profile.

Here is the result: https://www.instafreebie.com/free/EADxa

Or if you want I would be more than happy to gift it to you from Amazon (still working on making it free): https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B01N1675I...

Aislinn | 157 comments Hey Jordan! Smart idea with instafreebie to build your mailing list. Are you on the free trial?

I hope it works!


message 26: by Jordan (new)

Jordan Robinson | 13 comments Yeah! The free trial is amazing. I have no idea what I'm going to do when it expires :(

are you here to save the day and give me a good alternative? :p


message 27: by Aislinn (new)

Aislinn | 157 comments Man, I wish! My own free trial just ended and I'm debating whether I want to sign up for real.


message 28: by Annie (new)

Annie Arcane (anniearcane) | 606 comments Does Instafreebie market your stuff for you? Or is it strictly a place to have your free downloads available? Like, you direct traffic yourself? Am I making any sense? LOL

If you are on their paid thing (or the trial) they do market for you. I don't know how much, but I didn't market at all myself and still got a bunch of subscribers. (about 75)

If you just do the free one - nope. You don't even get the option of making people sign up to your newsletter in exchange for your story. It's just a distribution platform then.


message 30: by Annie (new)

Annie Arcane (anniearcane) | 606 comments Ah, gotcha. Thanks, Miss Aislinn.

I thought it was just a "hub", if you will. But makes sense why people use it now ^_^


message 31: by Aislinn (new)

Aislinn | 157 comments Yeah, it's useful.


message 32: by Jordan (new)

Jordan Robinson | 13 comments Wait a minute time out. lol what did you put up that got 75? I was happy to see like 14 trickle in


message 33: by Aislinn (new)

Aislinn | 157 comments Just a little 6.5k romantic suspense story I wrote. Nothing special, but I made a (kinda crappy) cover for it. Seemed to do the trick!

Might just be a genre thing.


message 34: by Amie (new)

Amie O'Brien | 189 comments Ha ha! Your title cracked me up. A big 'ol welcome to you! ❤️️


message 35: by Denae (new)

Denae Christine (denaechristine) | 45 comments Hey, Jordan, it's nice to meet a non-erotica-writing author sometimes (a sfw sfwa ?).

Are you working on a longer story, or will you stick with short ones?


message 36: by Jordan (new)

Jordan Robinson | 13 comments I'm working on two longer ones now! But I like to keep all 12 of my fans satiated with short ones in the meantime :)

And ah, a fellow Sanderson fan??

That's me!

Hello there Jordan!
Don't be nervous, feel free to share anything - non-erotic or erotic... just saying!


message 38: by Jordan (new)

Jordan Robinson | 13 comments Hey! Your post just reminded me to buy that sandwich, er, your book that I said I would on Wordpress the other day. Just clicked purchase :D
