Well, after much pondering and debate, I decided to make this page…
So, let’s start from the beginning, shall we?
My name is Dragomir Cristian Mădălin, I’m a Romanian author striving to do his best in the world of English literature! I’m rather new on the market and completely unknown from some points of view. You probably already know what I write and what I do, so you clicked on the page in the hope of supporting me as a writer and helping me out however you can, right? Well, thank you very much for that! I really appreciated it! 🙂
There are basically THREE ways in which YOU can help me. 1) Review on Amazon. 2) Share, Like, Feedback on my work. 3) Donations. 4) Patreon Pledge.
Here they are:
The First one is also the one I consider to be the best. Basically, you will need to buy my books from Amazon, read them, and then write me an honest review on their page.
Now, you are probably wondering: How exactly will this review thingy help you?
It’s quite simple, my friend! By writing an honest review, be it of 5 or less stars, be it of more than one sentence or an entire essay of two pages, you will automatically boost my book on the search query of Amazon (because books with no or very few reviews are at the very bottom). At the same time, you give it a SHINY look because everyone loves to see a book with lots of 5 star reviews. These two points will basically attract curious people. They will stop, click on the preview, maybe read the first part, and maybe buy the book. Some will simply read the reviews and think: hm, maybe it’s worth something?
Those are a lot of “if”, but can you really help me with something like that? Yup, you can! Actually, on the long run, it might be the best helping hand you can possibly offer me! It can boost my sales of the book, it can raise my writer rank, it can raise the book’s sale rank, it can give a better impression both to my book and to me as a writer! It will attract blog reviewers or it can even land me a publishing deal! All of these can be achieved if you spend those five minutes to write down a review for my books!
Thank you very much for considering this option! 😀
The Second option to help me may be a tiny bit more meddlesome. I’m a bit of an idiot when it comes to marketing and advertisement, so if you can offer me a hand regarding this matter, it would be quite awesome!
How exactly could you do it? So far, my recent net activity is thanks to My Web Novels, so the best thing you could do, if you are a fan of the series, is spread the word about them. If you see someone on the forums asking for a similar work, let them know about it. If you see me make a new post on the web novels or a new chapter or book, drop a click on the Share button and let people know on your social medias. You never know who will spread the word further on.
Again, if you know of anyone who has a blog and reviews books or web novels, you can point them my way. (I recently found out that asking by myself to have something that I created be reviewed is considered by some people rather rude and would most likely ignore such requests. On the other hand, a suggested book is viewed higher.)
I have a Twitter, a Tumblr, and a Facebook Author Page on which I upload any new post I put up here. I also have a Wattpad account. If you have an account on any of those, you can drop me a Like, Follow, and even a Share!
What will this do and how will it help me? Basically, you will be telling everyone that you like what I write and that they should check out my page if they feel like it! You will spread the word throughout the world that some author named Dragomir Cristian Mădălin actually exists! You will tell them that they should check out what I write! (It’s not much. It doesn’t involve you paying anything. Basically, it’s free advertising/publicity that I’m asking for. 🙂 ) The more people know of me and follow me, the higher the chances are someone will be interested in one of my books and read it, maybe even write down a review too!
The reason why I’m asking for reviews, shares, and likes on them is because, in the end, my only way of making money right now is through my books! As it so happens, if I don’t manage to make enough from them by September this year, my writing hours will be cut short by 8 hours or more, seeing as how I will need to get a job and all. This means that my chapters won’t be posted every day or so but every week or so, depending on how I will manage my time. It will also mean my chances of publishing a book more often will go down by a lot! 😦
The Third way to help me is through Donations! (be careful, you are the one who picks the amount to donate, so watch out for the extra zeroes 🙂 )
The Fourth way is by making a Pledge on my Patreon Page. Basically, it’s a monthly payment. You can give as much as you want. Share this page around as well if you can’t pledge. 🙂 Anything helps, really!
Now, I am required by law to tell you for what sort of purpose/purposes I’ll be using the money from these donations besides buying bread and meat to put on the table.
I got 100 Euros and I upgraded my website to Premium! 🙂
But, let’s say that through some miracle, I get more than 500 Euros per month, what will I do then? Although I see it as highly unlikely, I’ll be paying for my 500 Euros monthly treatment of Entecavir also known as Baraclude. (Still far away)
That’s pretty cool, but let’s say I get even more than that? What if I get 1000 Euros per month? Basically, I’ll be able to stay at home and write at least one chapter per day and try to publish at least one chapter per month.
OK, now let’s say I strike gold and have enough money to buy myself a ticket to space? Basically, I’ll be doing what I said above, I’ll keep writing at least one chapter per month and maybe, maybe start a business of some sorts. I will also be hiring other authors to write books in the Universes I created or will create. I’ll hire various artists to draw art for all my posted chapters or maybe even work on a Web Manga. I’ll even think about investing in a game set in a world of your choosing.
But yeah, let’s keep it realistic! :)) So far, I’m just hoping to gather 1000 Euros monthly with both Donations and my Amazon Published books, so I can offer you all a chapter per day on my web novels.
My product: What I write on this website and what I published on Amazon.
Your payment: A smile, a like, a share, a review, or some $.
You decide how you wish to help me as a writer, meanwhile, I’ll keep writing as much as I can and as often as I can! 🙂 When a Web Novel is going to end, I’ll make sure to offer you more! 😀
