Ask Dan ANYTHING

dan
your humble host
Each week we’re taking five, maybe ten, of YOUR writerly questions and setting about answering them for you. 

Ask Dan ANYTHING

Skill level doesn’t matter. Newbie writer, veteran writer, you have questions. I’ll opine; maybe some others will chime in with their thoughts, and hopefully YOU will get several good solutions to choose from.

Or something like that.

  • Wanna know what dialogue tags are, and why you don’t want them in your story?

  • Wanna know how to create a “page turner” story?

  • Wanna know why you need to build an author platform?

And it doesn’t have to be directly writing related. Sometimes you need to get in the writing mood by NOT doing writer stuff. Maybe you wanna know about doing author events, but maybe you wanna know about public speaking, or… I don’t know; the London train system. (I had some trouble there, if you’ll recall.)

Or why so much of Europe requires you to pay to pee…

I don’t want to suggest ideas TO you, I wanna know what’s on YOUR mind.

What are YOU struggling with?

So ask.

Ask me anything.

We have lots of smart people here; if I don’t know the answer, I’ll find someone who does. Or I’ll make something up.

Go ahead, you know you want to.

ASK ME ANYTHING!

Post your questions in the comment section below. I’ll answer the first five, maybe the first ten – so don’t goof off. Post your question NOW!

    1. Hmmm never heard that before! Surely if as a reader you have bought the book and decide when to read it, its nothing to do with them! Amazon are quick to take the money when you order the book. The author should still get their royalties! But I don’t know lol!

    2. Amazon has different policies depending on how the reader comes in contact with the book. If they use Kindle unlimited, that type of rule doesn’t apply. If they buy the book out right and never read it, there’s not really much value being delivered.

      Anything I would say here would be subject to changes on a whim over at Amazon so I’m gonna direct you to their policies and procedures for more clarity.

    3. There used to be a rule for KU, before it switched to payment based on pages read, that the author wouldn’t get paid unless 10% of the book was read. That was a strong argument for switching to pay per page – authors of shorter books had a better chance of being paid under the old system.

  1. I’d love to know more about how you writerly-types balance your TIME. If you are interested in writing a post about that especially for my time-management challenged readers, Dan, I would be honored to host it. I struggle with having much of life outside blogging/writing myself – so my interest is also personal.
