Hello everyone! I hope all of you that celebrate Christmas had a great holiday! Mine was relaxing, Kevin and I exchanged gifts Christmas Eve actually – he gave me a new 28 inch Vizio TV for my office/workout room and a $50 Sears gift card so I can get some new clothes. I love the TV because I can access Amazon Instant video on it, as well as Netflix and even Pandora Radio and IHeartRadio. My workout DVDs also look great on it. For those of you who are interested, here’s what it looks like:
With Christmas being this week, of course I haven’t gotten any work done on my eBook, but I did get the Fiverr gig to have my book descripton formatted for Amazon’s website ordered, and that’s been returned to me already. This coming week I hope to work on formatting my eBook and also start brainstorming which websites I want to advertise my eBook on.
I’m also excited to announce that I’ve added a new feature to this website – forums! You can find the links to register and log in to the to the forums up at the top – I’ve only got three listed at this time, but if you have suggestions for others, please feel free to let me know! I’m trying to set up this website so you’ll only see the forum-related widgets on the forum pages, so bear with me while I try to do that. I’m hoping these forums will become a place where current and aspiring eBook authors can share their questions, advice and experiences with writing, publishing and marketing eBooks. For now these forums are free to join, but in the future I may charge a fee.
I’m also thinking of buying the domain ericalmartin.com – I wanted to buy ericamartin.com, but it’s already been taken. I’m not sure exactly what I’m going to do with it, but I’m thinking of using it as a place post links to my freelance writing, as well as my Amazon author page and this site, of course. I just want to decide how I want to lay out the page before I buy the domain.
That’s it for this week – I hope everyone has a great New Year’s day and I’ll see you next week with another update!
