The Omega effect

It has been fascinating reading the reviews of my final book in the Jeremy Shuttle Adventures trilogy. To this point, only copies from my giveaway on Goodreads have been read and reviewed.  It’s possible some of my Amazon sales have been read, but no reviews have shown up yet.  And that’s what’s so fascinating. The… Read more »

So, anticlimactic letdown?

Nah, just a satisfied pause. Already, friends, Romans and countrymen are peppering me with questions of what I plan to do next to market the trilogy.  They’re correct, I need to work at it.  In order to turn my trilogy into the little books that could, I have to sell them myself. But, I’ve also… Read more »

Making good

We’re inching ever closer to the completion of the Jeremy Shuttle Adventures trilogy. Yes, the books have been completely written (and rewritten) for some weeks now.  Yes, the books have been submitted, accepted and processed.  Yet still… What Now? is the last part in literal and literal ways.  I only await the processing of the… Read more »

Three out of five is fine with me

A while back, I was involved in a discussion on the nature and desire for reviews with other self-published/indie authors.  A common theme was that any rating below four stars (using the Amazon rating system as the barometer) was a drag on the book’s appeal. The conversation was lively and ran the gamut from “all… Read more »

Where did that come from?

That’s weird. As we all know, What Now?, the final book in the Jeremy Shuttle Adventures trilogy hasn’t been “officially” released.  The revisions I made at the same time as the changes I submitted to Books One and Two are still in production. At least, that’s what I was told. Yet, according to my publisher’s… Read more »

My book ratings are falling…thank goodness!

Finally. The great thing about lovers of books is also the worst thing about lovers of books, namely, they read a lot of books. Though I have sent out many copies of What if?, What Next? and What Now? over the course of three giveaways through Goodreads, an active reader who receives the book is… Read more »

Can I get back to selling books, please?

I like to think of myself as a patient man, but I am suffering poorly this prolonged delay between the completion and release of the second editions of my books. Part of it is simply the marketing aspect.  After three consecutive month-long giveaways on Goodreads, I am swiftly losing any marketing momentum off those promotions…. Read more »

Am I unlucky or just a dope?

The evidence seems to be clear, but maybe you can help make up my mind. The third and final giveaway completed Sunday night and I’ve spent the last couple of days packing the books for mailing.  The three giveaways have been an adventure.  I could say they’ve been a learning experience, but we use so… Read more »

All webbed up and nowhere to go

Continuing our “Tales from Limbo” during the period between finishing the books and having them all up for sale. By this time, the JeffreyMDaniels.com website is finished, meaning there’s nothing left to do to the site. Sure, there is an FAQ that’s a wee bit dated (does anyone even read those?) and the message board could… Read more »

Money for nothing, write for free

I’m in a weird kind of limbo right now. I pulled the first edition of What if? off the market while the changes are completed.  The second edition of What Next? hasn’t finished conversion.  What Now? hasn’t even been released yet.  At the same time, the formative business with my friend has yet to gain… Read more »
