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!
Common wisdom is that the majority of those on the Asperger’s Autism spectrum prefer non-fiction books, especially about trains and elevators. But there are pockets of interest in a variety of areas, like SciFi / Fantasy or Jane Austen.
If you’re on the spectrum, or know someone who is, what do you / they prefer to read?
Book 2 on cover design is ready for beta-readers! Freshly revised for 2020. Let me know if you’d like to see a PDF to offer feedback! Book covers should be revised regularly to keep the sales flowing :).
Hurrah! The audiobook version of my Oxendine Lumbee story is now live! This is based on my g-g-etc.-grandmother’s true life. I would love some beta-listeners to let me know what you think of the narrator. I can send a FREE code for the audiobook, just let me know you’re interested!
If you prefer the Kindle version that is FREEEEE :).
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?
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 :).
I need readers to give me feedback! The 3rd (final) book in my novella trilogy is now complete!
A woman develops the ability to visually document past events. At first she and her team use this ability to explore historical events – the life of Jesus, how the pyramids were built. Events which will fascinate and educate our society.
But now they face a decision. Do they use the technique to prove to the world how politicians have been lying to them?
Would it even matter? If loyal followers had proof that a politician used a hate word, would they even blink their eyes?
So thrilled! My narrator for my Lumbee Native American story is done with book one. It should be live shortly. This is based on my great-great-etc.-grandmother’s true-life experiences. I’d love to hear your thoughts on this – book one is wholly FREE on Kindle. Give it a try! I’m working on book 4 in this series.
