But don't worry, the next round begins on 02 April, 2012.
Signing up is easy, and you'll find loads of support and encouragement within 'A Round Of Words In 80 Days' ranks. If you're a writer, you should consider joining!
Here's how I'm wrapping up the round...
* Two ARC copies of The Third Fate went out last night for review! I'm super excited/nauseous. Ha!
* One final proof read, okay...maybe two (I cannot help myself) and The Third Fate will publish at Smashwords and Amazon. I'll have to wait for the kick off of Round 2 of 2012 to announce!
* I will break after publishing for a week or two. Then, it's time to get down to business on my next WIP, a historical. Those stacks of research and brand-new notebooks are calling my name! I'm so excited to start!
* Here's where I could use some ROW help! For my first two books, I set the price very low purposefully. Being a new author with no name to speak of, I wanted to offer readers a inexpensive way to take a chance on a new author. I'm still about keeping prices low. But I've read a few articles that suggest setting your books' prices too low can actually harm sales and reputation - the premise being that when readers see an ultra-low price, they immediately question quality. This has been weighing heavily in my thoughts as I prepare to publish. My sister, who now refers to herself as my 'manager' ha!, thinks $2.99 - $3.99 for a novel is an appropriate price. Not too high, not too low. Still below average for better known authors. How does pricing affect your purchase habits? Do you love seeing that $1.99 price and snap it up? Or, does a super-low price tag make you wary?
* Developing relationships with fellow writers has been one of my goals since beginning ROW80 last year. The last two rounds have been so fruitful in that department. I've gotten to know a few authors better and opened up myself.
Enjoy the break, fellow ROW's! I hope to see you all in April! Happy Writing...
