Book Talk ~ Sand, Surf and Summer Reads. Oh and a few FREE books.

Oh, Those Lazy Day of Summer!

Whoever coined that phrase wasn’t a Woman, because we women seldom have a Lazy Day in any season, though we often find time to read a good  book. Today I’m introducing you to a few of my favorite Sweet Romance Authors. It’s a myth that we write sappy, cutesy love stories a la Barbara Cartland ~ innocent eighteen-year-old heroines falling in love with an older man, usually an angry Duke of this or that living Rich in some exotic locale. We’re creating stories about women with real issues who want to fall in love with a good man. A well written love story never goes out of style. Some have a little mystery. Some have a bit of paranormal. Some are full of emotional drama, others laugh-out-loud funny. All are H.E.A.

Falling Leaves Giveaway~ Useful 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~ 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.”

Super Fall Bookfest

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious Fall Bookfest

Happening Today through November 19, 2017

Good morning friends and fans! I’ll bet you didn’t think I could spell Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, much less pronounce it. You’d be right. Wikipedea saved my neck. My five-year-old great granddaughter, Lily, can pronounce it–but spelling is not  her forte just yet. Here’s what is in store for you: A full dozen of easy reading books by some of the best authors in our Indie Universe.

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.

What’s Your Beef?

The Naysayer’s Rant

Golly.  Not a day goes by that I don’t read a  blog spewing unhappy rhetoric about Amazon, KindleUnlimited subscriptions and KENP. I was going to quote a blog post today before I responded here, but wisely I visited Amazon and looked at the author’s book ranks. Here they are:

Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #843,296

Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #588,727

Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #690,870

Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #1,959,586

Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #1,371,610

416,732 KENP pages read in October, 2015 + 400 units sold. Figures accurate to 10/20/15.
