Hope everyone had a great holiday! I did. One more to get through and things should return to normal. Well, normal for me which is Kaos!!
Okay, I have some exciting news! My book Force of Nature has been nominated for an ARI Award at The Romance Studio. This award is for the book cover, not the content, but that's okay. I'm a newbie in this industry and I'll take what I can get. By the way, Force of Nature also recieved a reviewers choice award for the month of October from Two Lips reviews. If you'd like to read it pop in http://www.twolipsreviews.com/ and click on reviewers choice.
Voting begins in January at http://www.theromancestudio.com/ so if you'd be so kind, please place a vote.
Just a reminder, my third book Running Blind is coming in February. Blurb coming soon so watch for it. Don't ya just love the cover at the top? Cerridwen Press has the BEST art dept.
Okay, now I'm going to give you a few more authors to check out. They are fabulous and worthy of your time.
I like to push people their way cause self promotion is a bear in this industry.
The way I see it, print pubs dictate what we read and who we read. Now, don't get me wrong, I'd love to be in print, but if you knew the hoops you have to jump through to get printed it would blow your mind. There are so many outstanding authors out there that have awesome stories to tell. Thanks to the wonderful world of epub, they can tell them.
For those of you that poopoo the epubs, how many of you have print books stacked in boxes in your basement or attic? You know, just sitting there taking up space. How many trees sacrificed their lives so those books could sit there? Think about it? Epubs let you read them on your computer or these nifty little things called e readers.
I bought my mother one for Christmas and she's thrilled. Now she can read anything she wants and doesn't have to worry about what she's going to do with the book when she's done. She downloads it into her ereader and when she's done, she can blow it away if she wants to. No more stuffing a book into a bag and hoping someone will take it off her hands and NO TREES DIE! WHoooooo! How cool is that?
My mom is nearly senventy and she's finding books out there she can't wait to read. Mostly from Ellora's Cave and Cerridwen Press.
So, think about giving epubs a try and open up your reading world. You'll be glad you did.
Until next time..........
