Approaching The End

Clearly I am just not in a blogging frame of mind.  The longer I’m at this, the more I get immersed in whatever book I’m writing, until writing Other Stuff just…doesn’t enter my consciousness.  Until I surface and need to start digging out the house again. The #ROW80 Update While I am approaching the end, […]

Back From The Dead and FREE BOOKS

I’m surfacing from a serious Hell Week at the Evil Day Job in the wake of getting a grant out the door and trying desperately to catch up on all the OTHER stuff that had to slide in order to actually do that.  My to do list makes me tired just looking at it (so, […]

Free Mirus Short Story: Whisper of Shadow

So I’ve got a (sort of) new Mirus short story that’s rolling out THIS WEEK.  Whisper of Shadow originally appeared in the Magical Mayhem anthology last year, but I’m pretty sure most folks missed it.  I just got my cover art back from the fabulous Robin Ludwig, and it’s already been uploaded everywhere. What Emily wants […]

Pondering The Freebie

One of the often lamented aspects of self publishing is that despite the myriad of awesome opportunities we have to publish digitally through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and others, we do not have the opportunity to give stuff away for free like the publishing companies do.

A Tome About Promo for Indie Authors: Part 2-The Freebie

Giveaway: Kindle Kisses Day of Sacrifice

Today I have 10 copies of the Kindle edition of Day of Sacrifice by Stacey Wallace Benefiel, the author of the Zellie Wells trilogy that starts with Glimpse.  Because I have been out of town, I am shamelessly swiping the giveaway info from Susan who wrote it out all nice and clear. Note: Although this […]

Free Fiction Friday: Forsaken By Shadow Part 8/24

Just joining us?  Links to previous episodes here. *** Embry shoved the barely there dress and ankle-breaking pumps into the bag. Good riddance, she thought, far more at ease in the jeans and knit top she now wore. A quick pass through the rest of the room showed that she’d gathered up everything. Her single […]

What Do You Like In a Freebie?

It has been well established by Lynn Viehl, J.A. Konrath, and others that giving away some of your work for free is a great way to garner readers and fans.  Someone comes along and reads a short story or a novella or even a full length novel set in your world, their appetite is whet, […]
