Progress: A Guy’s Guide: New Home

2017-12-17_0344

Hi there …. how do you like my “A Guy’s Guide” series logo? Did it myself … the long way: using Word, then exporting to PDF, then converting to JPG.

Sigh. The joys of not being trained in design – something I am thinking more and more should be on the to-do-list for all indie authors.

Anycase, I created a Facebook page for the series. You can have a look (or hopefully join enthusiastically!) here: Facebook Page: A Guy’s Guide series.

I also ran a short, cheap(ish) Facebook ad campaign on the page just to get it going. Cost me about R700 (that’s USD50) and I got 1800 page likes – which I think is great for such a niche topic.

Trying to decide what to run on the Facebook page was another kettle of fish! In the end I just kept picturing my brothers and trying to think what they might enjoy. So I added lots of links to “how-to” type online articles and funny memes.

Will see!

If you bought the book (hint!), you’ll know that that I also created a playlist for it on my regular YouTube channel. You can go and check it out here: A Guy’s Guide YouTube playlist.

But sales are not coming yet. I opted for a Amazon KDP Countdown – you can only do this thirty days after joining, so it’ll happen sometime in January 2018. Will let you know how it went.

Have fun writing!
