July 19-21 the Catholic Writers Guild Live Conference will be held in Chicago. God willing, I will be speaking this year. If you can make it to Chicago, I'd love to finally meet you in person! Registration isn't open yet, but I thought I'd let you start thinking about it.

Hi all,

I'm sorry that I have not been around here for so long, My new writing project is taking up so much of my time! I hit 130,000 words this last week, so I have been busy. Am hoping to publish before autumn, but we'll see how that goes! Of course I will let you know when it's on Amazon.

Last year I promised a post about FB ads. I'm running a couple again now. If they are successful (and so far it looks like I'm making a small profit), I'll finally get to that post.

If you didn't take part in the Catholic Writers Guild's online conference this past weekend, you missed some really great talks. But don't cry in your beer, because here's another great-looking online conference that is coming up next month, especially for indie authors. They're going to have some great speakers, and it's completely FREE. http://selfpublishingadvice.org/what-is-indie-author-fringe/

If this link works like it should, Amazon's KDP now offers paperback publishing...

Hello, everyone. Somewhere deep in the past, I seem to remember a post on this group from someone that described what to do at various stages leading up to the publication of a new book.

I've never been much of a one for marketing (a fault, I know), but I have the opportunity, this time, of doing a proper job marketing my upcoming book, "McCracken and the Lost Lady," which will be published on May 13. Can anybody possibly help with a to-do list prior to the launch of a new book?

Thank you in advance for your help.

God bless,
Mark Adderley

Little late in asking what you think of my new book trailer - just another senior failure...I would appreciate your feedback.

If you think it has value, could you pass it alone? I would be happy to provide a PDF copy for anyone who would promise to post a review.

Thank you for considering these requests


Indie Catholic Authors:

Post the link to any new releases in the comment section so everyone can check out your books. I'll start. 

For all of you loathe to publish a paperback, I made slightly more money from Createspace than from KDP in 2016. And that's not including sales at speaking events and to friends and family. Yes, all my books thus far are nonfiction, but keep this in mind. And I have had two bookstores now stock my paperbacks of Trusting God with St. Therese.
