As I have been making a few changes to heading strictly to Amazon Kindle for a while I wanted to give a good back to school gift (that is for the parent’s that are jumping up and down their children are back in school) and a wee bit early Labor Day for the United States by making my book free for August 30th and 31st. Rise of a Queen will be free for download to Kindle and Kindle app’s

Thank You All For Helping Me and My Twitter Tweeks

As I am getting used to twitter, I feel I am not using it to its full extent.  It frightens me somewhat, but you know the more interaction I get, the better I feel.  I LOVE to interact, my blogger friends and others can tell you I LOVE to talk.  Writing, speaking, texting, everything. Sometimes to a fault.  2 words only?  Ha!  Small sentences? HA!!!! That’s a good one.

Anyway, I have a wonderful reader who won the e-book and am excited to see what they think of the book.  That’s the best part of writing, to find out what people think.  Don’t the rest of you authors agree?  It may not be what you think it is just by reading through the millions of book synopsis, I may not be the best at blurbs, but I bet everyone would be surprised on what they hold in their hands.  So CONGRATS.

Check out upcoming information soon on the next e-book drawing and my reminder about the Goodreads contest.

What to do when you have to wait?

I’ve been on the phone, I’ve been told to wait. Constant circle. About EVERYTHING. Being put on hold about bills from the dentists, word from doctors, the versions that like to keep creeping up about my book. 

I get worried that the slightest mistakes that I make are not the current version so I am always wanting to look over things.  Some are warranted and some are just down-right-funny if it weren’t for poor little ol’ me. Makes me wonder “What was I thinking what I wrote that part?” 

Apologies if anybody has had to deal with that from my end, and that is where phone calls and emails come in. How hard is it to understand current? Let’s not backtrack to a different version. Its not what was asked and the print shows. “sigh* the joy of being an Indie.

Yes, I did choose to do it this route. No I’m not lazy, I don’t think I’m talent-less, although I am waiting for a review and a nice email saying telling me I’m out of my mind for what I write and how I wrote it. I just dislike everything a person has to go through to end up exactly where I am right now but with someone else pulling your strings. I’m getting more involved, I’m finding Goodreads is a great place to go and have found many people who are in, or have been, in my situation. I LOVE it. I love the people, I love the feedback, I love everything. Heck I even love the snarkiness. what I don’t like are other places that make it darn well disheartening when they are quite snobbish or jealous of others (that’s not me, one to be jealous of that is).

I’m not in this to make money (okay I would like to eat just a little bit better). If I were, writing would not be my career choice.  I write because I love it. I live it, I engulf myself in it. I become the characters, I feel everything. It is true passion. One of these days for grins and giggle’s I should put up a short story that I had written when I was in high school. Not bad but I can see the progression of my writing. It takes many mistakes to make things right, and even then we all know how difficult it is to just walk away and quit fidgeting with it. I can honestly say, I don’t stick to the norm. It could be how my emotions are. It could be what kills me. Who knows.

Oh wait, I veered off there. Don’t mind me, I do that a lot. A to purple in 2 seconds or less. You could keep me entertained with sparkles for hours though. As long as they’re not pink. Well, actually maybe it wouldn’t matter if it were pink as long as it happened to be sparkly.

Something happened to my last post

I was wondering a few things.

From authors. Incorporating a paypal button for the ebook onto a site, yay or nay and why? I want real feedback. The comment section has become quite dry.

From more tech saavy people, if I chose to do the paypal method, how in the world can this be accomplished? There are tutorials but I’d have to have 3 computers going at one time to get all that information and I really would much rather be writing.

The Cat is out of the bag or shall I say paperback?

It is true! The book went live this morning HERE in paperback. I was looking for a good launch date, but when really can there be a good launch date?  They have yet to merge the Kindle and the physical together yet, I was given a week for that to happen.

So yes, Nice smelly fresh paper and ink, the nice thing to bring into the bath while relaxing away from the kids, or with the door closed hiding from those during lunch because your coworkers do nothing but talk about what is going on in the newest reality drama. There is something about a paperback that makes a person feel like they’re reading a real book. Don’t get me wrong, I like e-books, my book started off as an e-book (That is still out there! Don’t forget that, check out my main page for the links), but the question kept coming up. “Paperback?” I listened and it is out there for people to read or use as a nice doorstop or paperweight (it can make for a great throwing object when a tad upset too).

 Now that the e-book is out most places, Amazon is the first to have my paperback up, I can happily hide myself in my notepad once again to move toward my goal of finishing the second of the series within a 6 month period (Don’t hold me on it, there is this evil thing that lurks called writers block from time to time.  The good news is, the 2nd unnamed one is halfway done! 

For now, Rise of a Queen should, hopefully, do well enough to keep you interested to continue the series or completely satisfied in the ending on its own. Nothing like the joy of vindictive vampire justice to finish up a book now is there?  Oops, that cat is out of the bag now too. 🙂 

iStore…..I am deemed worthy by Apple!!!

Rise of A Queen has FINALLY hit the e-shelf of the iStore.  You can grab it from HERE or look it up on your nice gadget I probably don’t know how to operate anyway.  

I make a big deal of this only because the book came out a while ago and they like to manually review everything that they are sent and not just go through a bot system. So somebody felt Rise of Queen was worthy enough for their shelves so I am beaming from ear to ear
