The First month: The Cauldron Bound

So the Cauldron Bound have been out in almost exactly in one month. And the sales have been dismal. Part of it is because I screwed up when I signed up for Bargain Booksy without dropping the price. But even when I dropped the price to 0.99, the sales were few. The fact that people bought Exile, with a blurb written by a pro told me that the reason for the low sales were probably the blurb. So I tweaked…

Scrivener and revising

Scrivener and revising

I am currently working at adding at least one new subplot to The Cauldron Bound.  I am having a great time, and the story will be *much* better. But I am once again wondering how on earth I revised before Scrivener. I am a linear writer. I begin at the opening and then I write all the scenes I am aware of.  This leaves me with a first draft that is more or less stable. When I began to revise…
