Welcome to my new “Book of the Month” post. As a writer, I read a lot, so I thought it would be a great idea to share my favorites. I tend to read at least 4 or more books each month. Some I love, some I don’t. What I want to do with this post is share my favorite book from those I’ve read each month. I’m hoping it will help you find some great new reads. Today’s post is my book of the month for February and it’s my pleasure to announce that it’s Midnight Rose by Author Dani Hart.
Yesterday I wrote those words that every writer loves – The End. Yes, that’s right, the writing for Save Her Soul has been completed and four notebooks later the story has been told. My next task is to type up my manuscript before the editing process starts. I’ve really enjoyed writing this story and for those that don’t know, it’s a paranormal romance. The cover has been designed and I love it. I will be offering all my newsletter subscribers a sneak peak at the cover in my March newsletter so if you haven’t subscribed yet, be sure to do it now.
Welcome to week 2 of my new Freebie Fridays where you can get great free ebooks just for reading my blog. This week there are no Instafreebie links included. I don’t want my readers to have to sign up to someone’s newsletter to claim the free ebook. I have also included this week a Kindle Unlimited section. The books listed here are free for Kindle Unlimited members, but regular Amazon account holders will have to pay for them. I hope you enjoy this week’s list and remember to come back and share your feedback in the comments.
Last week I started a new feature on the blog called “Freebie Friday”. This is where I will be posting a selection of free books for my readers. These books will either be free or free to read on Kindle Unlimited. I’m hoping it will be a great success. I also want to point out that the free books will not be Instafreebie links where you have to sign up to a newsletter to download the book. These are books that you just click on and read.
This is something new here on my website and my way of giving back to my readers and also helping to promote other top authors. Freebie Friday is where you will find a number of books listed each week that are available without charge from either Amazon or Instafreebie. (Do remember that with Instafreebie you have to sign up for the author’s newsletter to download the book.)
As you know, I released my first fiction novel on the 31st of January 2017, so I thought it would be a good idea create a post on book marketing tips for new authors. I’ll be honest, writing the book really was the easiest part and learning all about marketing and putting everything into practice can take up a great deal of time. Here’s what I learned from the process.
I’m delighted to bring you a new interview and today I have the pleasure of introducing Enda Sheppard. Enda is a copywriter and editor and I’ll let him explain more about this in the questions that follow. I am always looking for new people to interview on my blog; authors, editors, freelance writers, etc., so if you’d like to feature, drop me and email and I’ll see what I can do.
These past two weeks have been extremely busy for me in the lead-up to the publication of my first fiction book. Finding Forever was a joy to write and it reminded me of why I love to write. Romance is a particular love of mine so being able to create a story that fulfilled this was so important. I have, to be honest, though, writing the book was the easiest part. Marketing and getting my work noticed is proving to be a lot more difficult.
