No tip for you.

I was going to do it anyway. But lying about it just made it rude.

How do I promote a self published comic on Amazon. I get a tip from a romance author.

How are you advertising your books on Amazon? I ask Romance author KG Fletcher on my Art Podcast Me: How are you doing the advertising (for your books). I know you said you were doing Amazon advertising... Me: It's hard to make it something that doesn't cost a lot and actually gets clicks (that lead to sales). "My biggest tip" for Amazon authors KG responded by telling me: KG Fletcher: So here is my biggest tip. KG Fletcher: Any author that's looking to dabble in (Amazon) ads, you gotta take Bryan Cohen's Five-Day Amazon Ad Challenge . It's free. KG Fletcher: He does it every quarter and it was a game-changer for me. I was curious so I asked KG how many ads they were making to advertise their books. KG Fletcher: I have over 200 amazon ads running right now. Me: Oh wow! Impressive. I wondered how much it costs to run that many ads for their books on Amazon. KG Fletcher: And I pay less than $100 a month (for ads). KG told me they make that money back

Wrong place.

Turned out the restaurant changed its name. I eventually found it.

Presidents day.

Out of office.

I love the respect of setting it up so people knew and the "I am outta here!" angle.

Wrong label.

They said I could email them the correct label and they would mail it for me which was nice of them.

Drawing a comic panel for a book and updated video stream set up

I have a new comic book idea and thought I would talk about it while I draw a panel of the story. I got a new lapel mic and I also found a way to hook up my drawing tablet to use it in a live stream. So I wanted to try both of these things out.

Snow walker.

The person was walking on a main road, not a residential one. They didn't even move when I came over the hill.

Delivery message.

I couldn't do it.

Family IT Guy.

It kinda bugs me I can't fix it.

Sick of winter.

Winter gets me down every year.
