Didn’t get any writing done on Valentine’s day but I was able to load the newest addition of the Dark Murmurings series onto Amazon which in itself, takes a lot of time.
Here is a short layout of the procedure:
I do all my writing on Scrivener. From there, I compile the manuscript to .epub format.
Once that is done, I take that compiled file and import it into Sigil where I pretty it up a bit.
Once that is done, I import the prettier file into Kindle previewer where you can see exactly how your book will look on a Kindle reader. The program also converts your .epub file into a .mobi file.
Then it is off to Amazon.
Sound easy right? Wrong!
I sometimes have to do this process like three to four times before I am satisfied with the layout.
Anyway. Once I was happy, all the smaller details have to be added. Search keywords and categories and those nice things.
I tried to be clever and used the words Stephen King in one of the keyword slots when loading onto Amazon. I mean, how many people search for his books every day right? Surely my cover should attract at least 0.5% of his readers.
Hmm, apparently, that is not allowed. Can’t blame a girl for trying hey.
Anyway, hope you all had a fabulous valentine’s day.
Total word count: 0 (But at least I have another title on Amazon – that’s a win in my book)
