I'm worried about the books i'm dropping on day 1. I want the first trilogy up and good to go all at the same time.

That's what pre-order is good for.

Release book 1, but with the other 2 on pre-order for a month and 2 months away, and a series page already showing all 3 books, readers can have a lot better confidence that the trilogy will be completed.

I would never publish all 3 on the same day though. Big waste of momentum building. imo.
i still plan on releasing a book a month for at least a year for momentum.
There are several reasons for the three at 1x
1st i write a trilogy with hard cliffs between every book in romance, which is a fairly big no no especially if people have to worry about getting the next book. Many people dont try a new author until book 3 is out. Marketing a single book is expensive whereas at 3 its easier so see a return on investment.
Possiblity of the lillian method actually resulting in a  algo boost.

Try 1-2 weeks apart and not a month. But I wouldn't recommend doing all three at once. All the data I've seen supports spreading out the launch of the books.

For me, it's always within 12 hours. But I've read of many other writer's that haven't been so lucky with it taking a few days, even longer (I'll keep my fingers crossed for the future).

With the series you've got going, put some serious thought into doing preorders (for 2nd/3rd book)--like Tim is saying^^. Preorders aren't too useful for 1st books, but for series books ready to go, you might get a lot of momentum.

People who are against preorders are often not considering the extra publicity through hot new releases, fans, and readers who are waiting to binge. But I do think that if you have a single book only, holding off on preorders might be wise (unless you already have a big fan base).

i'm definitely putting book 4 up on preorder than 5 and 6 so they can see the next trilogy is ready.

yWriter shows you a list of all the words in your document with a usage count beside each one. Last time I mentioned this I think someone said Scrivener does the same?

If the OP has in mind a checker that points out how often the most often words are used rather than just words used in repetition by mistake,

That needs clarification, because I assumed the latter.

This is is a problem.<<--- That's what I thought we were talking about.

If its how many times you use the word 'then' in the whole book, I used to search for it, and Word would tell you how many. Then check each one for if it was needed or not.

I published today in the morning and it took about 3 hours.
