ASH’S FIRE by @CallieGold_Esq – Top-10, guest #review romantic #mystery

Posted by on Nov 25, 2014 in Authors, Books, Featured Posts, Giveaways & Contests, Goddess Fish Promotions, Guest Posts, Indie Projects & Promotions, Leanne Herrera, Reviews | 4 comments

I am really excited to have not only a review for Ash’s Fire today for Callie Gold’s book. Callie and I met because of a lone Facebook status and I ended up designing her cover and helping her learn the ropes in this vast sea of self-pubs. The book is a twisting, turning romantic mystery with a subject matter many American’s won’t touch… monogamy. Callie also gave me a vignette to share. Also the book has been on sale all month-long and this is the last week. I promise you it is worth the 99¢! It is going to go back to its regular price this next weekend!

Before I continue I want to post a blessing to my Rising Phoenix, may she rise again in her daughter, you will be missed.  My friend Nix died after being trapped in her house after a fire broke out late Monday/early Tuesday morning. She is survived by her family, including her teenage daughter and her beloved pit-puppy, Diamond. Her son Michael has set up a fund to help with the funeral arrangements and to help replace her possessions since everything was destroyed.

Merry Wishes – a Whispered Wishes Novella by @KarenToz

Posted by on Nov 16, 2014 in Authors, Blasts - Blitzs - Cover Reveals - Showcases, Books, Indie Projects & Promotions | 1 comment

When I started off blogging about books all I had under my belt is a popular mental health awareness blog, a degree in medieval literature and tons of zombie authors and fans who were my Twitter friends. We had weekly gatherings to watch bad movies and talked about horror stories and yet, it is not the only thing I read. When I discovered the inner world of self-publishing and indie authors there was a group of people who created a support group for bloggers and authors who blogged. Karen is one of those people. She has an incredibly sweet and generous soul and has had her own trials over the last year herself. I was thrilled to be able to host her today on the blog with her latest cover reveal for Merry Wishes, a Whispered Wishes Novella and am really excited to be able to read the book too. But I have rambled enough, you guys want to see the cover? I love this trend in covers, so very classy!

Set in the future: #Thriller “Shatter Point” by @JeffAltabef – a #review

Posted by on Nov 13, 2014 in Authors, Books, Featured Posts, Kriss Morton, Mystery, Novel Publicity, Reviews | 5 comments

Not that I have ever announced it but if I sign up for a review on a tour I pick Monday’s to go with recipes or Thursdays for my review… don’t ask, I have no clue why but today is one of those days! Novel Publicity offers yet another wonderful book by EVOLVED PUBLISHING, Shatter Point. I am not totally sure how I feel yet, being sick (yes again people) I ended up starting it again last week and have had weird and disturbing dreams. He is a good writer, but man oh man it had some triggers. Let’s read about the book (oh and there is a Giveaway too!)

ENGAGEMENT: Social Media Content Across Popular #SocialMedia #writingtips

Posted by on Nov 12, 2014 in Authors, Blogging/Writing Tips, Books, Featured Posts, Indie Projects & Promotions, Kriss Morton, Writing | 1 comment

Last week we talked about your author image and what it can say about you. Included was a link-up with tons of other great advice, which if you are writing about #HaleNo also or have some positive tips, please feel free to link them up. But I bet you are still asking yourself why do I need to do all this? The simple fact is, you have to maintain a presence and engage people in your target audience. WeI have not delved into all the social media sites the infographic is talking about, however I full support all that are suggested and have been researching QZone & Sena Weibo later this week. The only thing that is not on this is Pinterest, which to me is a HUGE corner of the online marketing you need to tackle!

Honoring #VeteransDay with Author @IrishWinters1

Honoring Veteran’s Day

I am really excited to be posting a piece from Irish Winters today. You may remember the wonderful article on PTSD I posted during her Harely tour. The series’ characters are soldiers and Irish is very much involved in the support of veterans and active duty soldiers. In doing so she also had an oppurtunity to visit the Middle East Conflicts Memorial in October of this year, 2014. We have lost so many soldiers to these conflicts. As a former military wife I have lost many friends and others who are living with missing limbs. In fact one of my closest friends from when I was a wife, her husband lost his leg. He still is serving proudly.

Vampires, Angels, Vikings…Oh my! #DeadlyAngel 4.5 by @SandraHillAuth

Christmas in Transylvania Button 300 x 225Before I get to the review, and in complete respect to the fans of the Deadly Angels series and the author, I would never have picked this book up on my own. Because it is my first in the series I have read, I will not truly be able to do it justice. The premise looked good so I jumped onto the tour. With that said, bare with me because this is not something I would read on my own.
