So I’ve been quite busy with this NaNoWriMo thing of late, judging by my latest word counts, and since I already have it up on Wattpad, I decided to expand its reach a bit more. I need all the encouragement I can get!
And readers can even discuss the book – you know, point out typos and all that…
Tonight, I ambled over to my Leanpub account after ignoring it for a few months and finally got started editing my first novel in earnest. While it needs another read-through (and maybe the traditional manuscript printing and wasting paper bit), I decided set it aside and upload the NaNoWriMo book I’m writing, Loving Ashe.
And what do you know? It’s currently live! I have it up on Wattpad, but I’ve decided to continue it on Leanpub, where readers have the option to not just read it for free (which is pretty good!) but actually purchase the book based on what they think it’s worth. It’s a huge gamble, but I’d rather have that option for readers to buy the book if they like it, than none at all. It’s also a great way for me to test Leanpub as an e-publisher and online shop.
Whether you decide to pay $1, or $4.99 or even more, it’s up to you. Whenever I update the book, like when I add a new chapter – especially since the clock’s a-ticking with the NaNoWriMo write 50K words in 30 days deadline – you can opt to receive an email from me or not. It’s all on the page.
So if you’d like to read something a bit light, a bit romantic, a bit sexy and sometimes even a bit funny, Loving Ashe could be just for you. If anything, check out the new digs and tell me what you think.
