Low Carb Charts

Low Carb Charts

I’m doing a sweep to update all my low carb books. I’m starting with my most popular one – low carb charts.

Left is the old cover; right is the new one.

I’m making sure the branding is more clear that this is part of a full 13-book series.

Suggestions? Ideas?

Let me know if you’d like to take a look at the ebook to offer feedback on its content!

Books on Publishing

Success! Just finished an enormous effort and updated books 3-4-5 in my author’s essentials series.

Book 3 is an overview of the various ways you can get published.

Book 4 is all about traditional publishing including magazines.

Book 5 is a dense, in-depth section-by-section-with-screenshots explanation of how to self-publish on Amazon and Lulu for both ebooks and paperbacks. It also covers Draft2Digital, SmashWords, WattPad, etc.

I’d love to have some beta-readers of my updated versions. Let me know if you’d like to see one of these!

Cthulhu Book 4 – Sea Stories

Bob and I attended Al Weem’s art show reception Sunday. It was in Providence immediately down the street from where Bob and I did our Cthulhu research a while back. Being there prodded me to get Cthulhu book 4 done! Let me know if you can read this short story (6k words) to give me feedback. Cover – Do you prefer left or right?

Cthulhu Book 4 Lisa Shea

Here are covers 1-3. This is the series I began on a dare. Someone told me, “a series absolutely must be in one genre only. It can’t cross genres.” I of course said, “Oh yeah??” and promptly began researching and writing this multi-genre short story series based on the works of H. P. Lovecraft. But as he was a white supremacist, I made the heroine a bisexual black woman .

Also, I’ve always been vastly intrigued that Amazon and other bookstores have main categories like “Mystery” and “Romance” – and “Sea Stories” is right up there as an equivalent main category. Sea stories?? So I always promised myself someday I’d write a sea story :).
