Book Talk ~ Pocketful of Bones

Pocketful of Bones

Brilliant. Inventive. Dark.

Telling you up front I don’t often talk out loud about books I read by my colleagues. Yet once in a while along comes a book that knocks my socks off.  Some indie-authored books I read show raw talent that need polish, although most are well-written and entertaining–which is what a fiction book should be. I’m a writer. I’m a published author. My stories are not going to set the world on fire or earn a million dollars. I don’t expect them to do so. But I know a story teller when I come across one. C.S. Forester is a story teller. His 126 page novel, The African Queen, that I first bought for 35c was made into an unforgettable movie. Canadian author Farley Mowat is a story teller. Even his non-fiction enthrall because they are so honest.

 Yes you can! PROMOTE  a book without a single review

 

      New Release Promoted w/o reviews

New Release Promoted w/o reviews

In spite of what you hear and read on author blogs, Linkedin, on Facebook pages, author forums, and chat rooms, you darn sure can promote your book without a review. How such toxic information managed to find such a poisonous and penetrating life in our indie author universe is beyond me.  I am weary of listening to it and I’d like to put it to bed. Here is the single complaint that plagues me the most:

Striking a Balance

100+ Reviews

2014 has been a rip of a year in our indie universe. New promotion sites went online, Amazon tossed Kindle Unlimited into the mix in July  and the frenzy of Christmas books and collections literally swept the boards clean, and  indie authors have been trying to figure out the market ever since. Now the question is: What can you do in 2015 to get a slice of  the indie pie and put your books in front of readers?

The Perils of Pauline vs Indie Authorship

Jackie Weger

Jackie Weger

Do you remember silent films? And poor Pauline tied to the railroad tracks, a huge black locomotive chugging toward her, the train whistle blasting and the music thundering? I forget the hero who always rescued Pauline… I liken digital publishing to the Perils of  Pauline–except  we don’t have a lovely hero…we have to rescue ourselves when our careers or books are on the edge of a cliff on in front of that dang train bearing disaster upon us. I just this week rescued No Perfect Secret  and a blot on my career within minutes of a train wreck.
