Summary

Writing series can be a great way to level up your author career, create a more stable writing income, and create a devoted fanbase. It's also challenging, and can be overwhelming if you're not prepared. Series authors need to consider many things that standalone title authors don't have to worry about. And everything is exponentially more complex once you're tackling more than one book! You might be wondering:
 
*What kind of series should I write?
 
*Which details do I need to keep track of?
 
*How much advance planning should I do?
 
*Is publishing strategy different for a series vs standalone titles?
 
*How can I get the most bang for my buck in marketing and promotion?
 
Experienced series author Crystal Hunt will help you answer all these questions and more with this combination strategy manual and exercises that will get you applying what you've learned to your own series project.
 
Whether you're a seasoned series author, or just starting to explore your options and thinking a series might be a good next step for you, this book can help you write and publish your series smarter from ideas through publication and promotion!

    Greek vocabulary book + Greek dictionaryThis Greek vocabulary book contains more than 3000 words and phrases which are grouped by topic to make it easier for you to pick what to learn first. On top of that, the index in the second half of the book provides you with a basic Greek-English as well as English-Greek dictionary which makes this a great resource for learners of all levels.
     
    What you can expect from this book:This Greek learning resource is a combination of Greek vocabulary book and a two-way basic Greek dictionary:Part 1 - Topic based Greek vocabulary book: This is the main part of the book and represents a list of chapters each containing Greek vocabularies for a certain topic. The Greek vocabularies in the chapters are unsorted on purpose to separate remembering them from a defined alphabetical order. You can start at any chapter and dive directly into the topics that interest you the most.Part 2 - Basic English-Greek dictionary: The index in the second half of the book can be used as a basic Greek dictionary to look up words you have learned but can't remember or learn new words you need.Part 3 - Basic Greek-English dictionary: Easy to use and with just the right amount of words, this third part finishes off with a second index that allows you to look for Greek words and directly find the English translation
     
    How to use this Greek vocabulary book:Not sure where to start? We suggest you first work your way through the verbs, adjectives and phrases chapters in part one of the book. This will give you a great base for further studying and already enough vocabulary for basic communication. The Greek dictionaries in part two and three can be used whenever needed to look up words you hear on the street, English words you want to know the Greek translation for or simply to learn some new words.
     
    Some final thoughts:Vocabulary books have been around for centuries and as with so many things that have been around for some time, they are not very fashionable and a bit boring, but they usually work very well. Together with the basic Greek dictionary parts, this vocabulary book is a great resource to support you throughout the process of learning Greek and comes in particularly handy at times when there is no internet to look up words and phrases.

    A curated Greek word frequency listAre you looking for unconventional ways to speed up the process of learning Greek? Then this book is exactly what you are looking for. Following the Pareto principle (80/20 rule), this book is built to streamline the learning process by concentrating on the core words and sentence structures that make up everyday conversations. The result is a unique vocabulary book with 2000 of the most important Greek words and phrases ordered by their frequency of use.
     
    Who this Greek learning book is for:This book is for beginners and intermediate learners of Greek who are self-motivated and willing to spend 15 to 20 minutes a day on learning vocabularies. The simple structure of this vocabulary book is the result of taking all unnecessary things out allowing the learning effort to solely be spent on the parts that help you make the biggest progress in the shortest amount of time. If you are willing to put in 20 minutes of learning every day, this book is very likely the single best investment you can make if you are at a beginner or intermediate level. You will be amazed at the speed of progress within a matter of just weeks of daily practice.
     
    Who this Greek frequency list is not for:This book is not for you if you are an advanced learner of Greek. In this case, please go to our website or search for our Greek vocabulary book which comes with more vocabularies and is grouped by topic which is ideal for advanced learners who want to improve their language capabilities in certain fields.Furthermore, if you are looking for an all in one Greek learning book that guides you through the various steps of learning Greek, this book is most likely also not what you are looking for. This book contains vocabularies only and we expect buyers to learn things like grammar and pronunciation either from other sources or through language courses. The strength of this book is its focus on quick acquisition of core vocabularies which comes at the expense of information many people might expect in a conventional language learning book. Please be aware of this when making the purchase.
     
    How to use this Greek workbook:This book is ideally used on a daily basis, reviewing a set number of pages in each session. The book is split into sections of 50 vocabularies which allows you to step by step progress through the book. Let’s for example say you are currently reviewing vocabularies 101 to 200. Once you know vocabularies 101 to 150 very well, you can start learning vocabularies 201 to 250 and on the next day skip 101-150 and continue reviewing vocabularies 151 to 250. This way, step by step, you will work your way through the book and your language skills will jump with each page you master.
     
    Some final thoughts:Like many language hacking methods, this book is quite unconventional in its approach, but for a driven person that uses it correctly it can significantly speed up the learning process. Vocabulary books have been around for centuries and as with so many things that have been around for some time, they are not very fashionable and a bit boring, but they usually work quite well – and that is what counts in the end.
