Falling Leaves Giveaway~ Usefull things plus an array of Great Books

Hello all of you awesome people and welcome new subscribers to Accent on Romance.

Before we get to the wonderful array of books and our special Falling Leaves Giveaway, which by my lights are super special, I want to introduce you to Morris, the Feral Cat.  He showed up on our back deck a few weeks ago, skinny and perhaps elderly, and hasn’t left. Won’t. He’s the spiritual image of another Feral, Big Red, who was with us for five years.  Big Red refused to come in the house during rain, sleet, freeze or flood.  He spent his old age lounging on a step railing. We lost him to a coyote.  Morris has his sweet personality, adores a belly scratch, and kindly grooms our fifteen-year-old house cat, Allie Mae. Happy Days on our back deck.

BOOK TALK ~ Chicklit at it’s best…

HERE’S A WOMAN AFTER MY OWN HEART

How many times inside your marriage did you want to do this? Grab all of the money out of your joint account, do a number on the jerk’s truck and hit the road for a new life…

Jana Embers does just that. She adopts a cat for companionship, eschews men, chooses a perfectly sized and shaped device and writes about the perfect hero.  Determined to share her philosophy, she pens You Don’t Need a Man, encouraging women everywhere to go out and experience life instead of waiting for a man to complete them. She makes it work.

BOOK TALK~ Readers Speak and Hidden Gems

Good Books. Great Reads. Stories with Twists.

A favorite. Read this book and you will book a flight to Greece.

In a reader’s forum one day months past, guests were saying: “I can’t find a good book that keeps me entertained for hours.” Or: “I won’t pay full price for a book by an author I’ve never heard of.” And this: “Every book I look at says on the cover or in the book description, it’s a bestseller. I don’t know what bestseller means anymore. So, I skip it.”

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.

My New Year’s Resolutions–What’s Yours?

WOW! WHAT A YEAR WE JUST SCRATCHED OFF THE CALENDAR…

Across the USA and our spinning planet Earth we suffered, fires, floods, earthquakes and hurricanes. Some unlucky folk got doubled tapped by back-to-back hurricanes, or like us in Texas; a hurricane atop flooding along the Gulf Coast. Thousands have yet to ‘reclaim’ their lives. Now, sweeping down from the Arctic is severe and frigid weather. I accidentally closed off my bathroom from circulating heat and awoke on the first day of 2018 to discover my tube of toothpaste frozen almost solid.  Had to soak it in a bowl of hot water to get it flowing again. This time last year I was recovering from surgery to repair an aortic aneurysm. I had so many Hail Mary passes with my health in 2017, I bought two rosaries. My resolution for all of 2017 was: Keep breathing! Got it done.

Why Do Authors Make Their Books FREE?

This question pops often in forums… Here are the answers often posted…

 

  • Because they don’t know any better
  • To maximize downloads because they don’t care about money
  • Advisers telling newbies giveaways are the best career decision
  • People think the author is begging for sales
  • Because the books are worthless
  • I never price any of my books for free

FACT: None of these answers are helpful and some are out right lies by omission. Take the last on the list. The author who never prices books for free–can’t! Nope. That author is under contract and has NO control over the price of his/her books. I checked. And all are sucking mud to China in stats…perhaps selling one or two a year.
