In the last two days I’ve looked at two new book author sites of people on Twitter. In both cases I had no
idea whether the book was currently available for sale.
In each case I tweeted the question to the book author. One author replied with a list of all the places his book was for sale, and I kindly suggested that this information could be obvious on his site. The other author replied no, his book still awaited professional editing. And I… Continue
I finished McCarthy's The Heart is a Lonely Hunter this week. I was disappointed in the book, I think it attempts to be melancholy but I just didn't connect with her characters. The book was first published in 1940 and part of the charm of the book is the time period and how its depicted, but that is also a drawback as well because it dates the book, in my opinion. I also had trouble with her attempt to "take on" the rhetoric of facism, which came across at times as preachy. Regardless, I was… Continue

There is much to recommend Voice of Conscience. Kaya has an easy writing style that quickly draws the reader into the rich world of Muslim culture. The first section of the book, before the murders, is replete with descriptive events of the villagers, including customs revolving around daily life, dealing with adversaries, as well as preparations for a wedding. The author carefully outlines the codes each member of a family must uphold through both good and bad times. More importantly, he never… Continue

The author does an excellent job with his descriptive writing. He not only describes his characters in great detail but also creates a picture for the reader about everything from what the family is eating to what traditions they might be following at that very moment. Behcet Kaya has created a protagonist that is so filled with feelings of revenge that life could not be normal even though he had everything one could want. I have read many books but have never experienced the great detailed… Continue

I have two books that are published and I want to market them. My first book, "Mind Full of Scorpions" is a journey through severe mental illness and my second book is "Daily Meditations With Your Cat" which is an inspirational book centered around sages, saints, sinners, hymn writers, poets, and of course cats. I do not have the money to put into a professional marketing package so I'm looking for inexpensive or fee methods to do some kick ass marketing. I need to generate royalties from my… Continue
