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!
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! Read More
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! Read More
Mohanalakshmi Rajakumar is no stranger to the blog and has been featured and visited a few times including my review for her latest An Unlikely Goddess & Coloured & Other Stories. Her stories focus on the area of Doha (one of the reasons we call her Moha Doha). Doha is a city in Qatar and the background for two of her novels and a memoir. Everyday is a fourth-wall for Mohana as she picks up on motifs from the exploration of life for housemaids… today it all started from a email marked “Urgent Personal Matter” …
