Starting an Author Newsletter and Rapid Release Book Marketing | Behind the Scenes Writing Vlog #6

by | A week in the life of a writer, A Writer Writes, Behind the Scenes, BTS Vlogs, WriterADHayTV

Hello, Book Lovers!


On Wednesday, I decided to start up my weekly behind the scenes writing vlog.


The week started off with me getting ready to press the publish button on my Patreon page, making progress on the second edition of Smarter Goal Setting to a massive podcast fail which led me to work over the weekend. And, to top it all off, I didn’t revise Missing this week, but I did create a plan to move forward after a short break.


So this is what happens when things go from good to bad in the life of a writer.


In this sixth Behind the Scenes writing vlog I discuss:

  • My reasons for starting an author newsletter before I’ve hit publish.
  • The reason why I’ve decided to set up a Patreon page for The Authorpreneur Podcast and not gone down the route of podcast sponsorship.
  • Falling behind in my revisions for Missing.
  • My process for revising my thriller novella, Missing and my plans for getting back on track towards pressing publish.
  • Rapid-releasing my thrillers and how long I plan on leaving between releases.
  • Where I’m at with revising the second edition of Smarter Goal Setting.
  • Making improvements to the worksheets for the second edition of Smarter Goal Setting.
  • A tech fail which led me to record a podcast episode a second time.


Thank you for watching.


With love,


Amelia xx
