S4, E90: Camp NaNo Ending and Final Promo

Camp Nano ended in abject failure and I contemplate the future of the Maid Maleen project before discussing my hastily done promo for Aisuru. While the sales were pitiful, the ROI was great, though still a disappointment. Which leads into my last topic: where things stand with Girl in the Forest and the struggles of being fiscally responsible while also trying to produce great products and a great reader experience.


S4, E85: Eh, Why Not? Newbie Experiments

With little chance of “making it worse”, I decided to do a pair of experiments with free pulsing on Aisuru and tried out a blog tour book blitz.  This episode is all about that, after a hefty section of news and notes.  How did my experiments turn out?  Let’s see… (side note: my mentions of the episode length in the episode are “off” as I clipped out some extra babbling 🙂 )

Aisuru’s 2015 $0.99 Promotion, Part 2: The List

This post is part of a series of posts about Aisuru’s big 2015 99¢ promotion. I thought this information may be useful to fellow indie authors and to readers who are curious about how it all works behind the scenes. 🙂 In part 1 of this series, I discussed how I decided the when of Aisuru’s upcoming sale, some of the prep work I did, and how I decided where to submit the sale for promotion.  I also did a podcast episode where I discussed all of that and my increasing my mailing list as part of the prep.  I also gave […]
