Get Your Vote On at the eFestival of Words Awards!

August 12, 2014


So I did a post earlier this year about all the amazing authors I know who had been nominated in the eFestival of Words Best of the Independent eBook Awards for 2014. In an awesome turn of events, all the authors I was rooting for made it to the finals this year in one or more of the categories they were nominated in, so I'm going to ask you to help an author out and go vote for these authors. I've read their books and loved them. I am very passionate about them so please, please, PLEASE take a few minutes to vote for these very deserving writers.


The eFestival of Words login/registration thingy is a lot more simple this year so it should take even less time to vote than it did last year when all of you lovely, wonderful people made my first novel a winner in the Best Heroine category.


I urge you to go vote now because as I understand it, voting closes on or about 8/22/14. Winners will be announced on 8/24/14.


So I'm going to make this short and simple for you.


You're going to go to THIS LINK.


And look for the names of these authors:


NANCY S. THOMPSON (The Mistaken) in Best Audiobook, Best Thriller and Best Hero (For Tyler Karras)


CARRIE BUTLER (Strength; The Mark of Nexus series) in Best New Adult and Best Series


MICHAEL INFINITO (In Blog We Trust & 12:19) in Best Horror and I've Been Shamylaned (i.e. Best Twist)


DANA MASON (The Embrace Series) for Best Romance, Best Mystery/Suspense and Best Hero (Johnny Rhay Bennett)


ALEX CAVANAUGH (CassaStorm) for Best Science Fiction



KATIE METTNER for Best Sweet Romance


Hopefully I did not forget anyone!


Carrie has some excellent instructions on how to register and vote which you can see HERE.


 

Post-Release Post #8: Fear of Disappointing Readers

July 6, 2014

Two of my most favorite, I-would-probably-pass-out-if-I-got-within-2-feet-of-them-and-sort-of-almost-did -when-I-met-one-of-them authors are Karin Slaughter and Dennis Lehane. This is well-documented.  I discovered Lehane in the last year, but I've been reading Karin Slaughter's books for over a decade. Both writers have a series based on a specific set of characters. I'm a dedicated, passionate fan of their work.





And yet, they've both written one book I felt disappointed by.


I won't say which ...

Another One of My Favorite Books is OUT NOW!

June 5, 2014

I promise this blog is not turning into a promo site. The problem is that I know so many amazing writers who keep churning out these amazing books. It's a heavy cross to bear (*winks, smiles*). So the lovely, kind, funny, crazy-talented Dana Mason has just released the third and final book in her Embrace Series. Now look, by now you guys should know I don't really do romance. I do give a lot of romance books a chance each year but usually don't make it through any of them. Dana Mason's books ...

Something Else Amazing Happened!

May 22, 2014

So you guys might remember my What if Something Amazing Happens post which is my second most popular blog post ever. (The first most popular is the one about the Finding Claire Fletcher launch). At the time, I had finally found an agent after 4 years of rejection and I had been on submissions for over a year (and had 6 more months to go!) You can go back and read the post, but basically it's about not giving up even when going forward seems like utter madness. 


As you guys also know, my first ...

Post-Release Post #7: Marketing (Blog Tours)

May 16, 2014

I've had this post sitting here for a long time, waiting to be published. So here goes! 


This post should really be called Marketing for the Indie Author because I'm pretty sure everything I'm about to say does not apply to authors published by Big 5 publishers or their imprints.  Although to be fair, authors pubbed by large houses still have to do a lot of marketing work via social media if they want to be successful.  I was going to do one post on Marketing but it turned out to be way, way, ...

Just popping in once again to let you know that my third novel, Hold Still, a stand-alone set in my native Philadelphia which I hope to develop into a series is now available in ebook format. The print version will follow in the next week or so. It actually went live last week but I haven't officially announced it till now. So if you're interested, below you'll find the cover, description and buy links. It is as gritty as it gets, so if you could stomach my first two books, you'll probably li...

It's no secret that I love Carrie's books. As I always say, that says a lot about her abilities because I generally can't get through anything that is either paranormal or romance--let alone both. But she is converting me one bo...
