Jumpstart is going to be a loss leader

iStock-669387114_1I’m thinking that I should make the first book in my Tune series a loss leader. I only came across the term today, but I had the idea of making it free for a long time. But I had been flip-flopping on the idea. I mean, I want to make a steady income from my writing, but I need to create a fan base first. Making some of them free might be the way to go. I also need reviews. Those are like leprechaun gold.

At the moment I’m done to death with editing this novelette. It’s nearing completion and for a bonus, I’m going to be putting the first chapter of the next book at the end. I’ve got that completed, I just need to write the rest 🙂

Jumpstart edit 8 done

iStock-669387114_1Finally got the eight edit done. It was like torture. I could only do a few pages a day. It seems that my energy for this story is coming to a close. I think maybe one or two more edits (praying to the writing gods here).

I could see that I had repeated some information and cut a lot more words out than I put in. It was all line edits, nothing structural anymore. I think that was done with that a few edits ago.

I reduced the word count to under 22,000. I have a few bits and pieces that need to be fixed, but I’m just glad I got through this round. 🙂
