For book/ebook authors, publishers, & self-publishers
I’ve been reading a lot of threads and forums lately dealing with the topic of marketing your book. It seems there are a lot of “newbies” out there in this relatively virgin explosion of indie publishing and many can’t understand why their book isn’t selling. When asked if they market and promote their books most say yes, but complain that they have limited time, maybe a few hours a week.
These authors wonder why they have little or no sales.…Continue

It never fails to amaze me how we have become such an instant society. Now, what exactly do I mean by that? We have become a society in which entertainment, whether television, movies, or books can be had at the press of a button almost anywhere in the world and at any time. As a writer, that means you must have a constant presence in order to stand out among all the clutter.
I have been on vacation for the…Continue

If you read my blog you know that in the last week my novel, DROP OUT http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005FX0K7U has recently soared in the Amazon rankings below #1,000 in the paid store and #25 in romantic suspense. My sales bump started with a free Ereader News Today sponsorship and has continued with the novel staying in the low 20,000’s in the rankings this week. So, how do I keep up the momentum?
Success for a writer can be defined in many ways. For some, success can only be defined in monetary terms. For others, world-wide recognition and fame are the incentives. But every once in a while an unsolicited review from a total stranger can put all my time and effort into perspective.
This is one of them. New…Continue

This was unlike any promotion I had done before. Instead of paying an upfront fee for the sponsorship, the website takes a small percentage of sales that come from…Continue

This is probably going to be the last time I post these, as I have finally worked out the right aspect ratio of images to use for creating a 16:9 video. You basically have to dig for the information on YouTube; it is located in a cave, under a rock between two twigs. The right image size for this kind of MPG4 is 854x480, not 720x480. I thought I should pass this on for anyone trying to create widescreen videos. The Roxio I use then condenses the image to 720x480 properly on the finished…Continue
