@kseniaanske. How much help from your friends and fans do you use in your work? I suck in giving names to chyaracters, them I started to ask people suggestions in that
I write the first draft with doors closed, and only then ask for suggestions. It's mostly feedback on the general story feel, but I also ask to comment on cover ideas and I put my readers' quotes on the backs of my books. Let's see, I have also asked in the past where they would love to see my books (what online places to distribute them to) and what price would be good. Does this help?
