Amazing Amazon Kindling Review – Day 14

I took a few days off from writing about the Kindling course I am taking, but I continued to write and work on other parts of the Kindle Book Publishing process.

Just to give you an update, I put up the request for an editor on Elance and finally chose one last weekend.  I created a book that was almost 37,000 words, and I can tell you that was not intentional – it was just me writing and telling the story that needed to be told.  I have turned the book over to an editor – I chose someone who was new but put forth a great proposal.  She included a sample of her writing, and it sounded very similar to mine, so I decided it was best to go with her.  It’s going to cost me about $150 for the editor, but I want it to be good.  I hope I will earn that amount from the book, at least.  [I have a personal stash that I am using to pay for the editor, not my regular business money]  Still to come, I will need to have a book cover created – and I will hire someone on Fiverr to do it.  I may hire 2 people on fiverr.com and just choose the one I like better.  I hope to have the book out in the next 2 weeks.  I will let you know later if I feel an editor is an important part of the process.

Other people have obviously released books and not used an editor, so it might be too much money to spend on a product that I am not sure about.  But I have a need to have the book look good, so forgive me and you don’t have to hire an editor.  Geoff Shaw does not recommend it.

Going back into the membership, I see that he has added a couple of things to the Tricktion section of the membership.  I read through adding facts to your story and I see how it will improve the novel.  I had never thought of it the way he describes.  And he has added another section called reverse it that is perfect for making new stories and plot lines.  Finally, he has added a video called DAM that describes how to build a plot using multiple story lines and people.  I loved it, and it reminds me of the way I have plotted out my next book that I am writing now.  It was the way that the plot book that I bought on Amazon called – Holly Lisle’s Create A Plot Clinic.

So the next sections that I am going to review are called: Marshall and Copy Success.  The first is about the Marshall software that he recommends, and he goes into great detail about how to use it.  Then copy success shows the different successful authors – I assume in an attempt to make you feel like you can make it.  I would like to see some books done by members, but maybe he will add that later.

I hope that you enjoyed this review, next up is Kindling K2 – Promotion.  I am excited about this.  I have my next book about 10,000 words written and well on it’s way to being a series.    Looking forward to the next review on Kindling.
