I don't know if this is even AMA worthy but I decided to jump on the bandwagon Very Happy I sell my books on Amazon and write under a pseudonym (for obvious reasons). So go for it Smile

How do you maintain the easy, light style your readers want without going off into philosophical debris?

How did you learn the technical aspects of converting your writing into the correct format; getting cover illustrations; getting reviews . . . it always seemed a bit daunting to me.

Well... the obvious question - if you are a romance writer how do you write sx scenes? Or you don't?

I read a lot of what's out there by the more popular authors and just know my audience. They aren't reading books like mine or others like mine for anything philosophical. I also only write for fun and have no desire to get into anything deeper, honestly.

Facebook groups! I met the woman who does my covers on a Facebook group Smile Also, Youtube! Amazon has a self-publishing service website that helps from Point A to Z. These days, with an Internet connection, it's super easy Smile I also read a lot of interviews of authors because they almost always get asked: "What advice would you give an aspiring writer?" or something along those lines, and the author does give good advice,

I do write them. I should add that I did not grow up frum, so I was exposed to a lot. I was reading Harlequin romances at 14/15. I didn't grow up with the same views on s*x as my ffb friends, and it's really hard for me now to reconcile these two sides of me.

Not enough to quit my day job but it's a nice cushion for some extras. I can eat out for lunch a couple days a week instead of bringing my own Laughing

Sorry, no can do. Even though I'm anon here and write under a pseudonym, I'd still like it to remain private.

I can recommend you authors though Smile

How do you promote your books?

How do you pay someone to do your covers while maintaining your anonymity?
