I loved the results of last week’s poll, where I asked you what your favorite POV (point of view) was. The comments especially made clear that those who dislike, do it strongly, haha. First person present has some haters…and I can understand why because it’s not always done well. [Read more…] about Weekly Poll 20 March
Last week, we looked at preferred length of the MM romances you guys read. The results showed that for most of you, the middle is the best. Few preferred shirt stories or novelletes, few preferred super long books. Most readers said anywhere between a novella and a long book, though quite a few also indicated it depends on their mood, which makes sense. [Read more…] about Weekly Poll 13 March
We skipped one last week, but we’re back with a new weekly poll. First, let’s look at the results of the last one, which was from two weeks ago. The question was: “What setting would you love to see more of in MM romance?” You guys had some cool ideas!
Lesser known US states ranked highest, followed by small town US. Small towns are always popular. I love reading them as well, though I haven’t written one myself. Hmm, maybe I should, haha! The next two options were pretty close, a European setting or in the UK, and then we have another few that are pretty much on the same level. Lesser known states, huh?

This week, we’ll have a look at analyzing Amazon ads, which is super helpful in determining what ads work best, what your max spend should be, and whether you’re actually making a profit. Let’s get started! [Read more…] about Readerlinks: Amazon Ads Analysis
This is not a paid list or ads, but simply deals I’ve found and books I’m excited about reading, so all personal recommendations from me. If you have a book you’d like to see listed, you can submit it, but that’s not a guarantee I’ll list it.
Another week has flown by, which means it’s time to ask your guys’ opinion on another poll! But first, let’s look at last week’s result. Last week, I asked if you guys would mind me sending out an extra newsletter when a book of mine went live.
The overwhelming majority (56%) said they wouldn’t mind at all, and another 19% said they didn’t care either way. Only 25% said they’d like to keep it to once a week on Saturday. That’s certainly food for thought for me. [Read more…] about Weekly Poll 21 February
