Self-Publishing Formula

It is with great regret that I think we’ve decided that we’re not going to be able to afford Mark Dawson’s Advertising for Authors course this term. Wish we could, I’ve heard great things about it, but the price is just too steep at this point. Maybe next term. Ahh well…guess we’ll just have to piece it together from all his podcasts, combined with those from Johnny, Sean and Dave (the guys over at Self Publishing Podcast), and maybe throw in a little of the Smart Passive Income podcast, just to be safe.

Slowly, but surely, I’m learning how to make this thing work…maybe. #fingerscrossed

Invalid Registrations

So, thanks in large part to help from my brother and Dr. Google, we were able to identify how the invalid registrations were occurring and have probably solved the issue.  Registration is re-opened for all users, and, if anyone is using WordPress to manage their own site and needs to know how to prevent these registration issues, feel free to drop us a line at admin@ringdroppress.com.

Invalid Users

Okay, so we’ve had some issues with people registering on the website using invalid e-mail addresses. Let this be an alert to alert that 1) registering on the website doesn’t do anything for you (yet); 2). we verify all e-mail addresses that register, and, if found invalid, those users are removed (verification is separate from the internal system validation) and 3) at present, all promotions associated with registering have been terminated.

If you want to register for news and updates, please use the MailChimp registration box on the right of any of our webpages.

Terms of Service, Privacy Policy, and Error Reporting

Well, when we transferred over from the old site, the Terms of Service and Privacy Policy didn’t make it with us, so, I finally got around to having a set generated using a free auto-document generator. Both of these are posted, and, pending review will be the ones that we use for the foreseeable future. Review should be accomplished within the next few days.

We are also throwing in a “Report a problem” area with the Terms of Service and Privacy Policy, because we know that many people that have an issue actually want to help get that issue resolved. Whatever the error is, it’s preventing them from doing something they *want* to do, so, when they can’t, it’s even more frustrating to sit there knowing something is wrong and not being able to do anything about it.

If you have any issues using our website or with anything from one of of our e-mails, please use the report a problem link at the bottom of any page to tell us what’s wrong, and we’ll do our utmost to either fix it, or find a reasonable work-around.

Taxes are Done!!!

Two months after they could have been, our taxes for the year have finally been completed and filed!!!

Settled. Sort of…

So, the relocation has finally happened.  We’re in the new space and we are already loving it.  Now, we just have to wait a little bit longer for all of the equipment, supplies and materials to show up, and then we can spend a good long while getting settled into the new space, and resuming our previously hectic schedules.  We are so relieved to be in the new space!  It’s been such an amazing, stressful, fantastic journey, and now, with the exception of waiting for that delivery, the euphoria is beginning to settle in.  The new space is absolutely amazing!  I wish I could share with everyone just how thrilled and relieved we are to be back out on our own (not sharing a space), but the feeling is almost indescribable.

Looking forward to getting lots of work done in the new digs and the new year!
