As far as I know, my first Orange #1 Tag in Australia.

Also got one for the UK, but it didn't last very long.

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.

Yesterday, I had 30 words of poem, 74 words for the serious space opera, 580 words for the humorous space opera and 226 words for a short story, giving me 910 words total for the day.

Really, really need to outline the humorous space opera.  I put the villain in an inescapable situation and then I made it worse and then I made it still worse.  So, the villain may end up defeating himself.  Which is okay.  Be kind of like Raiders of the Lost Ark if Indy hadn't showed up.

I'm at 10 words so far for today and that's for the serious space opera.  Down to three chapters to read.  And then I need to go back and fix two things I missed on the skim-thru pass and the editing pass.  Kind of important the main character figure out the minor puzzle presented to him early on, especially as it goes to one whole theme of the story.  Kinda important that.

Also had a weird dream last night but haven't figured out a way to incorporate it as a story in anything.

There are times I miss live group chats in Skype.

Not writing but I miss you guys. Listened to 3 chapters on read aloud and started my first ever newsletter email thingy. I did get the Kobo promo so I put the preview of book 2 in book 1 and that will be the focus of the letter when book 1 is in the 40% off sale.

I narrowed it down to two choices...and since they both take place in the same area of England (50 years apart) I'm looking at maps and photos today.

Hope to be back to writing in the next few days.  Historical fiction always takes more research, but that's what makes it so much fun!

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).

edit{ for clarity

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?
