Word Count for Kor’Thank, Barbarian Valley Girl: 5433
Thanks to All Who Bought Echo! And BIG THANKS to Melissa, Barbara, Ian, Lorna, [anonymous], Lisa, Meg, Matt, Bobby, F.T., Alice Smith, Leslie Coop, Richard, Shauna, Sydney, Pam, Jessica, Angela, Kiesa, Ross, Keith, Alice, Daina, Daniel, Yolanda, Trace, Books4me, Vince, Laurie, DAE, Jace, Matthew, and Siobhan for posting AMAZING reviews on Amazon!!! Ashley too for the 5 star on Nook! I’d like to reiterate that leaving a positive review for any author is the equivalent of leaving $100 tip at a restaurant (I know some authors who’d actually pay that much for a good review). Although I sincerely appreciate any love you leave me on Amazon, please consider leaving a review for ANY author you know, simply as a random act of kindness…because it’ll mean the world to ’em! (A good place to start are those I’ve listed—a few of them are authors. Let me know if you want me to put you in touch with ’em and I’ll be more than happy to do so! And no, you don’t need to have purchased their book to leave a review on Amazon; you simply needed to have used Amazon at one time or another to leave what’s called an “unverified purchase” review. If you purchased their book at the store or on another eReader, you can still leave a review for them.)
News: Right now I’m chopping diligently away at Echo 4, hewing to the goal of eliminating 2k words a day. I’m also wrangling with Ingram Spark, trying to set up my paperback distribution so that bookstores can order from Ingram through their stocking system (something that Createspace apparently can’t do). Also got a new cover for Echo 3 in the works, and I’m also standing by from my artist for a cover (same one of Echo 1 with different subtitles) for the combined edition of Echo 1 and 2. Still drafting 250 words a day for Kor’Thank. That’s it for now! If you’re a writer, I wish you inspired drafting and insightful editing!
