I! MADE! PROGRESS! ON! TRIALS!
Not a lot of progress--I just sort of read over stuff and made adjustments to what was already written, plus I kind of set things up for retooling the opening (cutting the first two chapters--very typical of me), although I didn't do the heavy lifting. But good enough for the first day back after a looooong absence, especially because I really enjoyed it and got right back into working on it. Big smiles here!
What else? I noticed that I'm getting a lot of clicks on my Facebook ads, especially the Kobo one, but I don't seem to be actually selling any books there. I'm not sure if there's a delay in reporting or what, but I paused the ads for now. If sales don't show up in the next week or so, I'm going to try cutting out the Goodreads reviews, and then if things don't change after that, I'll probably just go ahead and make Trang free on the theory that Facebook ads and paid books just don't mix.
(ETA: Notice that I wrote Trust and not Trials in that first sentence--fixed it, but, oops. It has been a while, hasn't it?)
