Marketing: Instagram/Facebook Ads

Recently, my vacation to Iceland led to an offer for $30 in advertising credits. If you want a quick summary, don't unless you: 1) have a significant Instagram following; 2) have the time and money to lose; and 3) have a book on sale. That seems to be the only people I've seen with success... Continue Reading →

Review: Red Sister

Title: Red Sister Author: Mark Lawrence Stars: ★★★★ 1/2 (4.5 stars) While I've followed Mark Lawrence on Twitter, I actually hadn't read anything he'd written, but my brother recently picked up this book (and subsequently powered through the city). He hasn't stopped talking about it since, so when I needed a book for a flight, I picked up Red... Continue Reading →

Weekend Experiment: 99c Sale

Stacking ads - the indie author way? Obviously, putting one after another or even multiple ads on the same day should widen your visibility. However, not all promotions are the same. While I've found previous success with larger ads (i.e. BookBub) or the blog tour if I'm aiming for reviews, my move from publish-focused to... Continue Reading →

Testing Writing Hacks: First 3

Growing up with YouTube, I grew up with the 'hack testing' video genre. Five minutes testing ten second micro-clips and showing the ridiculousness of it all. Most of them are beauty related. Be it the clock-work TroomTroom tests by SimplyNailogical or the less frequent social media playground traversed by Safiya Nygaard (or my personal favorite,... Continue Reading →

#6books6months

I'm cutting this month by month release schedule at six. From here forward, I'll space the remaining six books out for my sanity and my wallet. In the age of the indie author, no marketing isn't reality. Though my books are selling steadily, continuing would result in my buying covers faster than I recuperated the... Continue Reading →

Half-Way to #12book12months

With four books in the Warlock of Rochester series published, the first installment of Kasmai Cycle, and the first of Eoin O'Leary's Paranormal Adventures, I'm half-way to my goal of twelve books published in twelve months. And I feel like I've gone insane.  My 15th release date won't be reached in March. I can already... Continue Reading →

New Release: THE ONE THAT LIVES

THE ONE THAT LIVES - brothers struggle to stay alive under the malevolent attention of a genocidal war lord, his cannibal general, and the witch who probably should be their first concern. #newrelease #YA #darkfantasy

Review: Ask Me No Questions

Title: Ask Me No Questions Author: Shelley Noble Stars: ★★★ I found this one difficult to get into despite my love for Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries. The main character does hit the bored house-wife / widow with an adrenaline addiction and societal constraints fairly well; however, it is the disregard for such societal niceties which attracted me to Phryne Fisher....
