It’s been over a week since we launched the new I Heart SapphFic website and readers are loving the sleek new design!
The IHS BookFinder is by far the most popular new feature. Are your books in it?
As of writing this email, we have over 1225 books in the database. We’re cruising along adding the newer submissions, too, so if you’ve submitted a book in the past few weeks, it will be in the BookFinder soon. If you haven’t submitted your book(s) yet, we recommend doing that ASAP. Here’s the submission form.
Do you have an upcoming sale or free book?
With the new website, it’s much easier for us to promote free and sale books, and we can do so on your schedule rather than requiring certain dates. Rest assured, we will still be hosting the 99c and Mega Sales, but this is a great way to get more eyeballs on your books at other times of the year. Find out more here.
All New Writerly Wednesdays!
In other author news, we’ve completely revamped Writerly Wednesdays as a valuable resource for the SapphFic community. In addition to IHS news, it will include weekly wisdom from seasoned writers and editors to help us all up our games. Jae, Em Stevens, & Adrian J. Smith have come on board to share what they’ve learned during their writing careers.
Do you rely on social media for all your book marketing? Have you been meaning to start a newsletter but haven’t gotten around to it? Jae’s Tips for Authors explains why authors should have newsletters and not solely rely on social media.
Today’s grammar tip is one that can trip up the best of us. In fact, TB just had to look it up the other day! Adrian will walk you through Reek v Wreak.
Are you ready to write a novel in a month?
NaNoWriMo is just around the corner, and Adrian J. Smith will be posting videos in the I Heart SapphFic Author Facebook Group giving explaining what the heck NaNoWriMo is, offering advice, tips, and strategies to prepare for the big November writing event! Join the Facebook Group and don’t miss out!
Check back next Wednesday for more great advice and details for joining the I Heart SapphFic November 25-29 Mega Sale.
