I've had 15 junk emails today and averaging about 5 per day since the B&N hack  :icon_sad:
I've also had no sales after a BookBub in B&N, though plenty with all other vendors. Luckily, the B&N problems happened after the BookBub promo. So, weird stuff is happening with my books on B&N, anyway.

BTW, if anyone has any idea on how to get rid of junk emails now that my email was compromised, please let me know. For now, I'll just keep deleting them without opening them.

Ah yes, the hack. I heard about that somewhere, but didn't pay attention, because I don't buy at B&N nor would they let me buy there, since I'm not American.  But that could be the reason.

And I do sell there on occasion, though less than I used to.

B&N was hacked 2-3 weeks ago. They're still fixing the damage. My latest published on Oct 14 still isn't up and I received sales numbers for B&N from D2D for the first time in 2 weeks this morning.

Are B&N still functional?

I saw a comment on Quora the other day to the effect B&N was effectively dead. No idea if it's right though.

Anyone know what is happening with them?

Could be D2D cant get a response from them, so have nothing to tell you.

I released two new books on October 13 and October 18 respectively. I'm wide and distribute to B&N (and several others) via Draft2Digital.

Normally, a book goes live at B&N within one or two days. However, both of these books haven't yet gone live, even though it's been more than a week for both. They are live everywhere else D2D distributes. I have contacted D2D to ask if there's a problem with distributing to B&N, but I haven't received a reply yet.

So does anybody else have any problems distributing to B&N via D2D?

Thanks to the advice on how to title the ads I was able to see at a glance that hook 3 is my best bet right now.

Luckily, I have only one title that has significant international appeal, so I've been ignoring all the additional ad venues except Amazon UK, where my (essentially second generation) keyword ad makes a profit.

Season 1...

Was all around entertaining.

 :tup3b

Season 2...yeah, dumpster fire about covers it. I bailed on episode 2 or 3. My main issue was with the MC's personality change - he was just so unlikeable. This happens a lot with television. In order to facilitate a cinematic moment, they compromise story and character and emotional arcs and, well, pretty much everything. Film today is increasing a series of these cinematic moments all strung together at the expense of logic and consistency. As a result, nothing is earned and they just fall flat.

I think season 1 of True Detective was as good as it was because it leaned so much into character, and then character merged with story. Every moment was earned, which gave them emotional weight.

It's like Hollywood has learned nothing from Marvel - cinematic moments are driven by earned character arcs not CGI stunts. This subject always reminds me of Han Solo's death. It should have been epic, but ended up as a meh. What a waste.

Watching The Halcyon on Prime. Posh hotel in London, WWII. If they left out the drippy stuff and just showed the Spitfires I'd be much more interested.

I don't mind drippy stuff except when everything is just so predictable.
