October has been a good month. There has been progress!
So it was Dreda's Birthday this month so I did a little sale that went somewhat well considering I put it together last min.
I cannot get the hang of social media at all! I am just not a social bunny. I've been trying to interact and post stuff about life but, I don't know, it's exhausting and hard and I guess I should maybe do some research ad reevaluate my app...
I've tried to pick myself back up on terms is Twitter/Social Media lately. Over the last few months, I just fell out of the routine I had set so I've been trying to get something posted somewhere every day. I need to get back on some more engagement and follow trains and things but socialising can be hard even in an online format.
I at least got Moon Girl into a local int...
It's been a good month. I do have some bad news but progress on my writing and towards Moon Girl 4 has been good. :)
So let's get the bad news out of the way. The actress I asked to do my audiobook just got a part in a musical that puts her in a full-time contract until February. This leaves her no time to work on the audiobook. I'm happy for her, this seems like a great opportunity for her but for me, it does put a l...
Not much writing got done this month as I took a long break to try and get over some burnout. I'll go into more detail but long story short after a very encouraging event I've gotten back into writing and started planning ways to make Moon Girl and future books more successful.
Said encouraging even this month was Cox Con! And the reason it was so encouraging is over half the sales I made there were people...
Pretty much everything is in place for Cox Con this year. Not as fast as I would have liked I've managed to get my merch up together. I'll be armed with books, necklaces, keyrings and bookmarks! Check some of it out:
Other than that, Audiobook is making slow progress but my narrator is a busy lady so I can't say anything for dates. It's sounding great so far though!
May has been a month of prep. My overall life has been pretty quiet so I've been able to focus on what I need to do to push forward.
Marketing is going okay. I'm a bit sad that the extra merch I've been working on has been taking so long. It's been a bit of a pain trying to get prints to the right size. I'm aiming to get them done for Cox Con at least.
The Ads I tried this month also sucked so that was...
This month went waaay too fast for me. Sure, I missed a week due to holiday but still. I managed to do a good amount despite that.
I got a bit sad and realised how much I need to step up my game with marketing. I've decided to pay for a bit of marketing every month. Just small things like maybe a fiver job or setting off a few adverts on Facebook or Amazon or something but this should help give my books a bit more a c...
March has been damn busy for me personally. I went to Liverpool Comic Con, I travel down the country to visit family and then I travelled the globe on my dream holiday to Japan but progress was surprisingly good.
I officially have a table at Cox Con! Woo! I've spent the last month planning what kind of merch and extra display items I will need for my expanded stock and look forward to putting it all together. My bank...
A decent month with something very exciting and unexpected happening.
So, every so often my team at work goes out for drinks. It was pretty fun and we had a laugh. One of the guys brought his fiance and we got talking. Turns out she had just finished a drama degree and has an interest in audio work. After mentioning my book and asking if she would do an audiobook for it she agreed! I've been spending a bi...
Last month of the year. 2018 has been a good year for Moon Girl. Moon Girl 3 launched and I managed to make on average double what I did last year. I've taken quite a few lessons from the events of last year and hope to be able to push Moon Girl and other books to be even more successful in the future!
But until then here's how December went:
I had a Christmas sale this year, launching the ability to buy Moon Girl 3 sig...
