Just a quick Update

Presentation1

Sunday was a busy day, but I made time to work on Trial of Marriage 3. Slowly but surely, I’m making progress. Since this is the final book of the series, it’s kind of sad to have the story ending because I’ve really enjoyed the characters. Nevertheless, I’m striving to make sure that all loose ends are cleared up and thoroughly explained. I really wanted to have the book ready by Mother’s Day; however, I’m afraid that’s not going to happen. But, I’ll keep you updated, and I’ll have a better feel about the release date around the middle of May.

The fact that someone other than myself enjoys reading my books means a lot, so thank you for your support. Oh before I forget, I wanted to mention that you should sign up for my website mailing list at www.rlynnarchie.com.  I plan on doing spontaneous giveaways and freebie stuff for my mailing list participants.

Talk soon, and enjoy your day!

The Effect Duplicate Titles Can Have on an Authors KDP Select Bookshelf

KDP Select Bookshelf

Do you know the protocol of having duplicate books on your Amazon KDP Select bookshelf? I didn’t before, but I do now.  First off, as much as I would like to keep my bookshelf tidy by deleting unwanted things, unfortunately, there is no option to take that action. Maybe there is a way internally through KDP, I’m not sure, but what I am certain of is an author is not able to make it happen.

The alternative solution is to change your active book to an unpublished draft. And, if you want to start off fresh still using the same book title, but not wanting the baggage that goes along with it (e.g. reviews, editorials, etc.) you would then use the option “Add a New Book” to create a new book with the same title but under a different ASIN. To be frank, my thinking was the old, unpublished draft would be closed and obsolete, however, that wasn’t the case.

What I came to learn was if you have the same title book their detail pages automatically link within 48 hours after an additional edition or version is published as long as the content, title, and contributors are exactly the same. The only way to avoid this automatic action in the future is to change a small detail in the title by adding a subtitle or a change to the form in which the author’s name is written as desired. You might perform this with the unpublished draft so the system doesn’t feed and match details for similarities.

Though in my case, since it had already happened, it took a few times going back and forth in correspondence with KDP representatives to get things corrected. Things ended well, but it was a headache getting to that point.  Hopefully my experience prevents you from making the same error.

Book Description:

Marissa Andrews thinks her life is on target after graduating from college summa cum laude and landing her first successful marketing job. She feels happy with her dream job, along with caramel hunk James, her older boyfriend “slash” boss. Things for her are not looking too shabby.  Unfortunately, everything praiseworthy does not always stay that way. And, when James’s freshly college graduated daughter Becky steps into the picture and starts working for her dad, with her comes nothing but trouble, topped off by a nasty attitude.

The strong woman that Marissa is factors into a decision to walk away from a job that she loves because the drama isn’t worth it.  It is a move that brings unexpected consequences into her life. If there is one thing that she has learned from her partnership with James, it is that work and personal relationships entwined are bad karma, and definitely should not be combined. A rule that she vows to live by from here on out. Only, the one thing she doesn’t know is that entrepreneur Roaman Stuart is about to make her acquaintance and put that promise to a test.

 

Love vs. Career (Second Edition)

This is the re-edited copy of Love vs. Career (Second Edition).  It will be released Friday, April 3, 2015.  If this title looks familiar to you, then you are correct because the  first edition was released July 2013. I chose to re-edit and do a second edition because I kept feeling the novel wasn’t quite right. I cringe at how much work it was redoing it; however, I went through it page by page analyzing and adding more “creative love” into the writing.  In the new version, I also made some minor changes in the storyline that I feel make it a stronger and sensual read. I wasn’t able to do it today, but I’ll have a teaser from the book for you in a day or two.

Let’s Talk ~ Fifty Shades of Grey

All About Books

10818853
Fifty Shades of Grey is one talked about book due to the controversy and erotic relationship between Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. On February 14th — Valentine’s Day — the highly anticipated movie will be premiered.

Although the book has received a huge amount of negative feedback that overshadows an equal abundance of positive reviews, it surprisingly has not stopped the growing hype of the motion picture that is scheduled for release this weekend and is already turning into a blockbuster. In fact, Fifty Shades is selling out all over the country and is expected to gross $60 million.

I read book one (spoiler alert), and although there was repetitious wording throughout the chapters, I was still drawn into finding out where things were headed for the main characters. In regards to Anastasia, I found her character to be a young woman seriously lacking self-esteem, confidence and doubted herself way…

15 Grammar Goofs

In visiting Copyblogger.com, I came across the article about 15 Grammar Goofs That Make You Look Silly. It’s a list of words that seem relatively easy, but can cause confusion if used the wrong way. Unfortunately, even I am guilty of making a few of these blunders at one time or another. However, since I am all about sharing information, I’m passing it along to you, complements of Copyblogger.com.

I hope that it will be a helpful reference guide.
