  1. Hi, Ray. I love the podcast #8 Maximizing Book Profits with Qat Wanders. I am struggling with how to promote my novels. I’m taking 30 years worth of ideas and transferring them into about 100 novels. Roughly half will be in a single series–a very detailed historical saga that covers 16 generations from Jamestown to the 2007 400th anniversary. The rest are divided between 5 different series titles. 2 are Sci-Fi, and the other 3 are various thrillers.
    So many worries–I guess with writing, editing–and even doing my own cover artwork, I never really thought about how to set them up on Amazon to reap maximum profits. So much to think about.
    After so many years of research, plot and character development–you forget about what is important.
    Yes, we all dream of touching the world with our craft (I know that is my passion in writing) and, yet, even more significantly, we need to make a decent living while we do it.


    1. Hi Ron,
      I agree! It is easy to get lost in the details. In your case, your focus should be on the novels. 100 novels will do a lot of the work for you once published, so focus on that. Great stuff!
