Serissa’s Song, Soon to be Live!

Well, all my lovely readers, turns out things have just gotten REALLY strange around here. I do have some lovely news however, and I’ve also got some lacking news, but it isn’t bad news.

So, I’ll start with the more unfortunate news. I have no idea when we’ll get back to the author’s interviews . We WILL do them, at this point there’s two things that have impeded on our time here. Medical and professional. On my half you should know that the “seasonal” store I work for during the holidays, is now a permanent store. This is great for me, but it does eat away at my time. However, with the major holidays over, and inventory as of this week out of the way, I will have more time for being online and doing things outside of my normal routine, which would be… INTERVIEWS! I’m really excited to get back to this as soon as possible in the next couple of weeks.

As you noticed there was some cool news as for me being employed year round. I only work part time so that makes it a lot easier to reconcile work and hobbies, or other work such a writing!

Now for the great, amazingly tremendous news! Serissa’s Song will drop in the next 24 hours or so on Amazon. Meaning you will be able to get your hands on book two very soon! I’m beyond excited for book two, the end just tears me apart in all the right ways and I can’t keep from reading it. So, to my lovely readers, I’d love to know what you think! Reviews or message me on Facebook, and don’t forget to like the page. Many pleases and thank yous in advance. Get your downloading fingers ready!

Until the book goes live, check out and if possible please share the trailers for  both book one and two!


Friends, Fans, & Followers

Sbooktacular Month went very well. The only downside was there weren’t too many new likes on the fanpage, so I’m pushing back the contest for another month as I’ve recently had a small spike. I don’t think many people who “liked” were actually doing so for the contest, so I’m going to reconsider my advertising for it and continue it out until the end of November. Thanks for understanding.

Also, I have a public profile on Facebook now, I invite all my friends, fans, and followers to come friend me! You can do so here: http://on.fb.me/HuOnMn I’d like to keep my private and public profiles separate. If you have sent a friend request to any profile thinking it was me other than the one attached to the link, you will need to resend to this one to be accepted. I don’t add anyone who isn’t close friends or family to my private profile for reasons I’m sure everyone can understand.

I have officially given away over 1,000 books for free! I am still waiting on a handful of reviews, hoping some will come from my last giveaway, but would love if anyone would be willing to review/rate SERISSA on Amazon and/or Goodreads. Feel free to add me as a friend on Goodreads! I’m hoping to get things rolling on book two very soon, which is one reason any help with ratings and reviews would be great over the next few weeks. I’m about halfway through editing book two, and will soon send out to my editor. After that it isn’t much to revise and post to Amazon! I’m hoping mid-late November since I’m a little behind now that I had to work quite a bit at my day job recently.YAY! I’m very excited about book two after reading some of my more recent reviews, I feel like people will mostly be happy about the interaction between the characters. You wanted more of the boys, you’ll get that. You wanted Sara to really grow up, that happens.

I also pulled out of the digital attic, if you will, the first unofficial official trailer for  Serissa. It isn’t fancy by any means, but you can view it on YouTube.com

A Little on the Personal Side:

  • If you weren’t an author, what would you be?  A ninja. Or a monster truck driver. Or possibly a criminal mastermind. Underground occult bookstore owner. Big game safari hunter. Crackpot radio show host. Mad scientist.

All of the above. Still, I’ll stick with “author”.

  • What types of books do you read? The stack next to me has “Fall of Giants” by Ken Follett, “Guns, Germs and Steel” by Jared Diamond, “The World as it Is” by Chris Hedges, “The Road” by Cormac McCarthy, and “Last of the Amazons” by Steven Pressfield.

 

  • What do you love most about writing? What do you not like?

Writing is freedom. Storytelling is as ancient as language, and although there is a craft involved in putting words together to tell a tale, the tale itself is entirely yours. An author chooses something that he or she is passionate about and commits it to a record for all time. A book is a window into the mind of the man or woman who wrote it.

On the other hand, writing is a tremendous challenge, demanding dedication and sacrifice. Crafting the story is easy. “Committing it to paper”— actually writing the novel— is hard, slow work. It is very rewarding, but it does try one’s patience.

Just a Little E-book Marketing.

Competing with thousands of e-books in the same genre is difficult, but I did. I came in #9 on the Top 100 Free downloaded books on Amazon a couple weeks ago. I advertised all over Facebook, Twitter, and a few websites. I intend to stretch that to other free promotion sites my next round, and then again to some paid ones the round after that. Trying different ideas as I go. So far I’m content with my free run. I had nearly 600 downloads in ONE day over five separate countries. I’m not entirely sure how successful that is, however, I have read many authors on their first free runs have that many downloaded over their five days stretch rather than in one day. If that’s the case I did something well. If not, I can only get better.

Serissa – One Day FREE!

I am running two promotions right now. One I did for Twitter last night, if I could hit 300 followers, I’d release Serissa for FREE for one day. We hit it by a landslide. 368! Good job guys, I appreciate all the help. Serissa will be free on 8/14! For one day only!

The second promotion is for Likes on Facebook as well as Twitter, I’m going for 500 Likes/Followers each! All the help I can get in spreading the word. I will make Serissa free again for anyone who missed it the first time, and for any additional followers!

That being said, if you can leave an honest review if you enjoy it. Reviews can be left at Amazon.com or Goodreads. Of course not necessary, but appreciated.

Thanks for all the help, RT’s, shares, and likes!
