Thanks for the feedback, Amanda! Yes, I KNOW there isn’t enough story info and that is a drawback, but I’ve had such a hard time coming up with a synopsis ready for sharing that I’m happy with . . . something I hope to fix within the next few months at the latest.

Huh, never thought about putting much author information on the page itself, so thanks for that! I always thought book info was what sold it, as my focus has always been for the material to speak for and sell itself . . .

Still cleaning up the first few chapters of the draft which will be posted soon, on the excerpt side of things.

Thanks again for all the feedback, it was VERY helpful and already has me realizing I need to fix things on my other project pages, ha!

Hi Tabi,

There is a LOT of information on your page, holy cow! What I’m not seeing is much on the actual story of the book. There’s a ton of info on world building, types of androids and what not, but I’m not sure that’s needed. People come to your page to find out about your book. As it stands this page is so full of other ancillary information it’s confusing.

I would suggest focusing on a synopsis of the book and introducing the main characters.  You don’t need to tell us the entire history of your world on the draft page. Remember your task is to get people salivating so much about your story that they can’t wait to buy your book.  

If I were in charge of the content on this book’s page I would start with a one sentence descriptor of what Asimov’s Law is.

Then I would give a short synopsis of the book.

Then I would introduce who you are, what you’ve written, and why this project is important to you.

Then I would introduce your two or three most important characters by providing a short paragraph of their backstory for each. Make sure this paragraph leaves the reader intrigued about who they are and has them dying to know more.

Then I would put up an excerpt of the book in order to show off your writing.

 I know you love images, but they are currently flooding your page and detracting from what your goal is, which is to highlight your writing.  Only add images in when they will enhance the words on the page. If you like you can create Pinterest boards for each of your characters and link to them in updates. I’ve been doing that and it’s a lot of fun.

I’m seeking layout edits and content streamlining for the information on my draft page. Any and all questions are appreciated, as are any critiques/comments. Soft or harsh, it doesn’t matter -- I want excellence and I know it takes a lot of work to get there, so don’t worry about holding back =)
