Writing Quote from Willa Cather

Most of the basic material a writer works with is acquired before the age of fifteen. – Willa Cather

Is that why I feel most at home writing Young Adult Fiction?

I have a real solid connection to my character Emma, from “My Sweet Infected” who is around 17. Her special friend Linda is around 15, and Porter is kind of ageless in this book. In a prequel we’ll deal with his history, and pinpoint his age somewhat.

Did anyone read it and want to leave a review? If you do, I’ll send you a signed 8×10 print of the Red Cover. CLICK HERE for details. This is well within the guidelines set by Amazon and Goodreads. An author friend has been doing something similar for quite a while and he says it’s been a lot of fun connecting with his reviewers.

So let me know what you think? Am I deluded or is Young Adult a good niche for me?

Writing Quote from Chekhov

My own experience is that once a story has been written, one has to cross out the beginning and the end. It is there that we authors do most of our lying.
– Anton Chekhov

With My Sweet Infected, this is how it begins and ends, for sure. In the absolute middle of nowhere. I also don’t elaborate on the pre-apocalypse either.

My Sweet Infected Blog Posts

From the Charles Miske Author Blogspot Blog HERE:

  • To be tortured by your own mind (dystopian young adult romantic triangle zombies)

    Do you know what it feels like to be tortured by your own mind?

    The soft sobs came slowly, then quickly. The dark spaces between the trees echoed with it to my sensitive ears. Though surely they would have heard it by now. My knees hit the dirt as I toppled forward, hands gripping my head. It was the end of the world. And that end was me.
    They spoke in a quiet whisper that didn’t come through the sounds of my own tears. Then Linda came through the trees, staggering and weaving a bit lost in the increasing darkness.
    “I’m over here, to your left.” The words were strained, squeezed in between the gasps that fit between the aching pains of my heart that poured out my eyes.
    She stumbled over and her hand grazed my face, found my hands and pulled them to her lips. She tasted my tears in her kisses. I pulled her in tight, to my chest, not an inch of space between us.
    It hurt to have her so close, but it wasn't possible to push her away either. “Why are you doing this?”
    Chapter 17, My Sweet Infected

    Check back for the Kindle Countdown Deal, starting March 30 for only $.99 on Amazon

    I've stated several times now that Anime has been a strong influence on this dystopian young adult romantic triangle with zombies. I love seeing these little pictures on G+ and am happy to share them with you when I run across one that seems meaningful.

  • Inspiration for My Sweet Infected Zombies and Anime

    I see humans, but no humanity

    (image from G+)

    When our romantic triangle of Porter, Emma, and Linda interact with humans and the zombie-like infected, it's difficult to say who is the monster and who is the human. Stepping back with self-awareness to recognize that there was a new distinction is part of our character's growth.

    The feeling of humanity enveloped me, drew me to the surface of my tense stasis. Linda was close. Her heat and warmth filled me. I needed her. I needed that power like grass needed the sun. I wondered if I would ever go back into the light or if darkness was my eternal destiny. -- My Sweet Infected, Chapter 14

  • My Sweet Infected on Kindle Unlimited
    Wanting to remind everyone that My Sweet Infected is FREE on Kindle Unlimited and in the Amazon Prime Kindle Lending Library (remember you have to get it from your Kindle to enable free borrowing, otherwise you will be charged).

    From Tokyo Ghoul, but aside from the red eyes, pretty much what I had in mind with Emma.

    So far it's been my absolute best seller in Kindle, and especially on Unlimited/Library, in which several a day go out to some awesome readers. Remember that if you've read it and leave an honest review I'll be offering a special thank-you, something simple.

    “What did I do wrong?” The tears smelled of salt. Her blood smelled hot and tasty just below the surface. She glowed in the darkness, begging me to take everything she offered.
    “Nothing. It’s me. I don’t trust myself with you.” I reached my hand down, felt hers under mine, pressed gently.
    “But I trust you, isn’t that enough?” -- My Sweet Infected, Chapter 21

    While typing in my "studio" the other day I took a short pause to discuss some of my notes about upcoming possibilities for a new volume in the series. Should it be #0, a prequel, in which Porter discovers the mechanism by which the infection is created? Or should be continue on with #2, right from the teaser at the end of #1, My Sweet Infected?

    How about that? Colorado/Utah. Did you expect it? 

    On another note, I've been thinking about doing a prequel next. Maybe to appeal to some of the blasting-away-at-zombies-with-unlimited-ammo people that I dearly love. In fact I started My Sweet Infected out in that vein and Emma kind of took over and had me channeling her wishes for the book.

    How about it? Focus on Porter's history in Book #0 in the My Infected Series? How do you feel?

    My Sweet Infected - Sample Chapter 21

    “I guess we go on to the village.” Confidence did not go with my answer.
    “And if it’s a trap?” He raised that eyebrow of his.
    “I get to eat?” It was supposed to be a joke. It fell flat.
    “Are you hungry?” Linda was still rocking, didn’t look up.
    “A bit, yeah.”
    “Do you need me? Just a little bit?” Her eyes drifted up from under her hair, met mine. She looked so tempting and tasty just then. Like the last time. It was a risk for me to look at her so open and accepting like that.
    “I’ll wait till I’m desperate.” It was definitely a struggle to maintain composure. To maintain stillness. My heart was racing at the offer. Her blood smelled good to me, even from here. So sweet.
    “If you’re desperate, you might not be able to control it.” She licked her lip with just the tip of her tongue. It called to me suddenly. Feverishly.
    Anime themes were a strong influence in the writing of this dystopian young adult romantic triangle with zombies and a few wild twists and turns. 5-Stars on Amazon.

Summit Success Progress Report

So it’s been about a month now and it’s been really great. I’ve sold way more than I expected and it’s been a ton of fun answering questions and chatting with people on Facebook about this book. I finally got an awesome 5-star review and just today got a bump in Kindle sales that skyrocketed me into the #1870 position in authors for the Health/Fitness Genre. That’s amazing for not having run a free promo.

Summit Success Kindle Stats from 10/13/2014

Summit Success Kindle Stats from 10/13/2014

I’m expecting a slew of more reviews to be coming in as more people finish this book. It’s a good 340 pages of intense reading, so I expect it will be a while for a lot of people to get it done and posted.

Here’s a sample personal review I received via email:

And the charts, you put a LOT of work into those! Too bad most readers don’t really understand what all goes into writing a book and doing the photos and charts and graphs and all the research and math and everything. I can tell that you put NUMEROUS hours into this book.

Yes, it took me two years to write this book. During that time I had a bunch of human guinea pigs testing it out and giving me feedback to help me make it the best book like it.

So go get one, now, and start your training. If you do, you’ll be in great shape for an April 2015 climb. Send me pics of your training and share your stories. We’d love to hear from you. Note: remember that for the time being it’s available FREE on Kindle Unlimited and Amazon Prime (remember to “Borrow For Free” from the Kindle in the Kindle Store, not from a PC or other device)

Elbrus Race 2013 Now Available Free

Now Elbrus Race 2013 is available on Kindle Unlimited and Amazon Prime so you can get it for free for at least the next 90 days, the minimum amount of time in the program.

If you have Amazon Prime or Kindle Unlimited HERE is a brief explanation of how to get Free Ebooks on your Kindle.

Elbrus Race 2013 is the story of my trip to Russia to compete again in the highest race in Europe after becoming sick in the 2010 race and being forced to withdraw. It’s rated 5 stars and a fun short read. It’s especially great if you can get it free. There will not be a free promotion so this is the only way to get it free.

Free Books on Kindle

Amazon Prime Kindle Owners Lending Library allows you to check out free books on Kindle. In general you’re allowed to check out any eligible book during a month, be that calendar month or 30 day period. You can keep it for as long as you want, but then must “return” it before you can check out another. In practice it’s quite simple and one of the ways to get free books on Kindle.

Announcing New Additions to The Kindle Unlimited Program

Tip: I have had people do this with several of my books, but there is on major “gotcha” that could bite you in the butt unexpectedly. You must use your Kindle to find the book in the store, and you must click the “Borrow for Free” button in gray below the “Buy for..” button in orange. Otherwise you will be charged for it. In that case so long as you have not read up to a certain point (I believe 10%) you can return it. Then you can get your free books on Kindle the way Amazon wants you to.

Kindle Unlimited is another way to get free books on Kindle. I have Amazon Prime so I’ve done the above several times. I do not subscribe to Kindle Unlimited because I get enough free books from my Prime account. With Kindle Unlimited you can have as many eligible books as you would like with no restrictions. If you read even two $4.99 books a month it’s a heck of a deal and I recommend it highly. There is a free trial if you’d like to check it out without risk. You could potentially take the trial, get a dozen $9.99 books and read them quick and make out like a bandit. Just saying.

You don’t even need a Kindle! Free App – Read Anywhere:

Summit Success: The First Week

Bottom Line?

I have had the best “organic” sales ever for a new book release. By “organic” I mean not using under the table tactics and techniques to artificially inflate sales statistics in the hope of attracting new buyers or getting a feather in my cap to wave in the air for marketing purposes.

Summit Success: Training for Hiking, Mountaineering, and Peak Bagging

Summit Success: Training for Hiking, Mountaineering, and Peak Bagging

The rest of the story..

It was an awesome and amazing first week for my new book Summit Success: Training for Hiking, Mountaineering, and Peak Bagging CLICK HERE FOR MORE.

In my recent article Amazon Author Stats CLICK HERE I showed how popular my book was in two key categories on Amazon. Part of the Kindle stats came from pre-orders. This was the first book that I was eligible to offer for pre-order and it went pretty good. I’ll probably do it again for a big book. It’s a little bit of a hassle for any book less than 30,000 words. Just my opinion.

For Kindle Authors in the Health and Fitness category I topped out at #3,213. Out of 50k+ authors that fit in that category that puts me solidly in the top 7%.

For Paperback Authors in the Health and Fitness category I topped out at #8,176 out of 80k+ authors in that category. That’s in the top 10%. It’s apparently a more competitive category.

For All Authors in all categories I topped out at #41,233 out of 500k+. That’s the top 8% of all authors in all categories. I guess my Kindle sales were enough to bump that stat up.

How is this significant?

If you noticed my previous book “Weight Training Secret Manual: 8 Hacks to Beat the Plateau” CLICK HERE I hit #1 in two categories in Kindle. That’s huge. So what’s the difference here?

First in Kindle Category - Weight Training Secret Manual

First in Kindle Category – Weight Training Secret Manual

Well, I marketed the Secret Manual pretty heavily with a few free days. On the one hand you get to find out how many people would have bought your book in the coming year. They buy it for free all at once and it looks spectacular for a few days in your sales stats. On the other hand, that’s a few hundred sales you don’t get paid for. It’s also a year with very low sales, since everyone has a copy already.

I didn’t do that for this latest book. I actually can’t afford it. My fixed costs that I have to pay from the last two years of research and development won’t allow me to give up a year of sales to inflate my ranking. Sadly too, since I could have probably sold over a thousand of these in a free promotion. That being said, I don’t expect that I’ll ever offer this book for any price less than what it currently is. Here’s the primary reason.

Amazon charges Kindle authors for the images in a book. Whenever someone buys a book we get dinged in what amounts to a per-image fee. You might notice that some Kindle training manuals in the fitness category cost more than the paperback. That’s because they’re paying for all the images. If you target your book at the Kindle HDX with full resolution images (as I have) then it’s even worse. I have 88 of them in this book, so it’s a pretty hefty investment from me whenever I sell one. The nice thing about it is that with Kindle Unlimited and Amazon Prime Kindle Owners Lending Library they don’t ding me for the images. So you get the book for free, and I don’t have to pay for your download. Win-Win.

So please, get it FREE on Kindle Unlimited and Amazon Prime

If you have any interest at all in this book, go download it FREE and take advantage of Amazon’s generosity. Or whatever it is you want to call it. It’s risk free. If you don’t like it after 50 or so pages just delete it and don’t worry about it. It was free after all. I would be a bit broken-hearted that you didn’t finish it though.

Another significant difference between my book and others published traditionally is that I didn’t inflate my stats to create a run on the book by buying up a thousand copies of my own book. Traditional publishing houses do that on a regular basis to create buzz. I also didn’t pay reviewers. This is common too. Some reviewers make a few hundred bucks per review. I have experimented in the past with giving away free copies to potential reviewers from among my Facebook and Twitter friends. Out of the hundred or so books I’ve given away explicitly for that purpose in the past two years for my eight previous books I have received four reviews. I can’t afford to give this one away with statistics like that.

As far as the paperback pricing, I had originally done the math with the intent of it being 300 pages and determined that the best price was to offer it at $38.99. You’ll probably have seen several of my old marketing efforts to sell it myself at that price. When I ended up with 340 pages it turned out that the price needed to be $45.99 to sell it through all distribution channels. I couldn’t possibly sell it for that. I’m not a celebrity.

The pricing for a self-published paperback is based on the page count and which distribution networks your book is available in. I don’t really need to go into details, but in order to offer it to real book stores, not on the internet, I actually don’t make money at the $32.99 price. I’m willing to do that though so long as they don’t charge me for it. In return for my generosity, Amazon has cut the price down to a bit over $26.xx – they change the price every few days so I don’t want to give an exact number of pennies there. That way they feel like they’re kicking the butts of the small book stores in mountain towns that I’d love to be sold in.

What makes this book different from all the rest?

Similar books from traditional publishers have come out over the past several years and even have similar page counts. Some have padded the book with hundreds of blog articles. Some have padded the book with ten page descriptions of how to do a plank. Some of these books geared toward running have padded the charts by creating versions for a 7:00 pace, a 7:10 pace, a 7:15 pace, etc. etc. You get the idea. I want to think that every single page in this book has meaning and importance in helping you to get to the summit of your dreams.

As far as other indie published books out there, all that I see are pretty small, vague, and not focused on anything other than a cool cover to get the sale. If someone has one that is at least half as awesome as mine send me the link, I’ll buy a copy (Amazon only) and I’ll review it for you here totally objectively, and if it’s at least that awesome I’ll apologize. Seriously. In return though, I expect that author to also buy mine and return the favor.

Wrapping Up

Well, like I said, it was an awesome week on Amazon. I sold way more books than I anticipated, and got some great stats in spite of not doing any shady business to get them. I am eagerly anticipating all the reviews I should get from these early sales, but realize it’s a very big book with a lot of material to wade through, so I know it could be a couple months before they start trickling in.

In the meantime, go ahead and get it for FREE and start working on it. It’s a great book, and if you start the program now, in 4 months you’ll be in the best shape of your life for that spring hiking you have planned.

Thanks everyone who bought this book already. I hope that many more join you.

Amazon Author Stats – Summit Success Pre-Release

Summit Success: Training for Hiking, Mountaineering, and Peak Bagging

My latest book has been live now in paperback for one full day, and on Pre-Order for Kindle for a little over a week. In that time I’ve gone up the Amazon Author Ranking quite a bit. Here are a couple of views:

Kindle, Sept 12:

Amazon Author Rank 12 Sept 2014 from pre-release of Kindle Edition of Summit Success: Training for Hiking, Mountaineering, and Peak Bagging

Amazon Author Rank 13 Sept 2014 from release of Paperback Edition of Summit Success: Training for Hiking, Mountaineering, and Peak Bagging

 

I’m pretty stoked and I hope the sales dashboard on the back end begins to reflect all of that when the pre-orders are all filled and billed.

If you’re wanting to buy one, now is a great time as Amazon has a spectacular price on the paperback. Hopefully it’s to stimulate early sales. Anyway, if you want it for about 20% off the list price, now is the time.

Oh, and be sure to sign up for the newsletter (right side of article) and I’ll send you exclusive offers, deals, and first opportunities when I do events, etc.

You want to get the Kindle for Free? Check out this little vid to learn how:

 

Note: you must use your Kindle to “Borrow for Free” from the Kindle Lending Library, a benefit of Amazon Prime. It allows you to “check out” one book per month. You can keep it for as long as you want, in general, but you cannot do it more than twice a month, and you cannot have more than one at a time. I use it and it’s been a great benefit.

I do not have Kindle Unlimited so I can’t tell you how that works, but if you read a lot and don’t want to take risks on poor book quality, you can just get a few dozen books, read the first 30 or so pages and delete it if you don’t like it. I’m not too concerned about that because I put everything I had into the quality of this book. I know you’ll be pleased.

Kindle Unlimited – Free Books

Kindle Unlimited is a new Amazon Program

It’s not part of Prime, though if your books are available for the Prime Lending Library, they will also be available in Kindle Unlimited. According to Amazon:

Kindle Unlimited is a subscription program for readers that allows them to read as many books as they want.

For $9.99 a month you have access to anything you want to read plus a few other perks. Of course, this includes only those books also available through the Prime Lending Library, but at present that’s over 600,000 books. If you love to read, the Kindle Unlimited program is awesome. If you’ve been afraid to pay up to $9.99 for a book that you’re not sure about, it’s basically free with Kindle Unlimited. If you read about a book a week, with an average book price of $2.99,. you’re saving just short of $2.00 a month with Kindle Unlimited.

Kindle Unlimited isn’t restricted to the Kindle Reader

You can use apps for your PC, Tablet, or Phone to read Kindle Unlimited eBooks. You don’t even have to buy a Kindle. Though I do really like my Kindle Fire HD.

In my own case, I have three eligible books.

  • Orizaba, My Almost Free Mexico Adventure HERE
  • Elbrus, My Waterloo HERE
  • My Sweet Infected (2014) BUY NOW
  • Summit Success: Training for Hiking … (2014) BUY NOW
  • Carstensz, Stone Age to Iron Age (2013) BUY NOW
  • Elbrus Race 2013 (2013) BUY NOW

My upcoming book Mountaineering Fitness: Beginner Training Manual will also be included in this amazing group of free books so that you can take advantage of this offer. I’m going to be offering this book on Kindle for $9.99 (pending approval from Amazon) but you can get it for free on Kindle Unlimited.
