Romancing the Dragon’s Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How much lead time do you need to run a book in the newsletter blast?
A: Most days, I only need a day, as long as it’s a newsletter blast. If you pay and fill out the form late at night (I’m on CST time) just send me a personal message through my Facebook. That’s the quickest way to reach me. Please PLEASE use this profile, as it’s the one I check the most. I can’t guarantee your request if it goes to my author profile or the RtD page. Or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
That said, I do need at least three days for series blasts, as I have to make a custom banner for it.
Q: What if I need/want a service that you don’t currently offer?
A: Join our Facebook group. I’m always open to adding new services, and I try very hard to work on a ‘say yes’ policy. So if you need a specific service, I will do my best to accommodate you. If we don’t currently offer that service, I’ll find a way to offer it.
Q: Can you tell me how many books I sold through my newsletter blast?
A: I can tell you how many clicks your book received through the newsletter. And because I use Amazon Affiliates, after two days, I can give you the number of books sold. I cannot, however, tell you how many copies of free books were downloaded, how many books were downloaded through Kindle Unlimited, or how many pre-orders were bought.
Q: Do you only focus on paranormal romance?
A: Nope, not at all. In fact, we have a large section of readers who love multiple genres. So if you have a book, give us a chance to help you promote it.
Q: My book is rated XXX. Can you still run it?
A: Absolutely! However, I will run a warning at the top of the newsletter that the content inside is adult and only those 18+ should open.
Q: I paid through PayPal, but I never received the Google Form. What do I do?
A: Easy-peasy. The form is here: SCHEDULING FORM
Q: I paid through PayPal, filled out the form, but never received a confirmation. How can I be sure my blast will go out?
A: If you filled out the Google Form, you’re all set. I get an immediate email when someone has filled it out, and within the next hour or two, as soon as I can get to my computer, I add it to my calendar. I’m working on a way to send out a calendar reminder, but I’m just one person. But, again, rest assured if you filled out the form, you’re good to go.
Q: Where can I go to learn about sales, deals, and exclusive offers for authors?
