Cover Reveal soon!! Together Again - to be released this week!!
Did you know that many of the e-publishers are changing their contracts from 2 years to 5 years? Wild Rose Press made that announcement some time ago. I’ve even heard rumors that some of the big houses could be expecting the rights to the e-books for the lifetime of the book. Getthe “f”outtahere!!!
Personally, I can’t imagine giving away the rights to my work ever again (except for the paperbacks – but that’s a whole other blog!).
When it became clear to me that I could do much better as a self-published author, one of the important aspects was having product to sell. Books that I could set up properly, making sure the categories I chose would be the best for that story. (Can’t emphasize to you how important that is… really!)
Also, purchasing my own covers, ones I felt proud of and knew would brand the whole series rather than covering each book individually.
And filling in the product descriptions in the best way to sell the work, giving the readers the information as to why he/she should buy the book.
I mean, think about it. When you see an advertisement about a certain product for sale if a quiet voice said “buy me”, would you listen? What if a mind-blowing declaration screamed, “This book sizzles with Hot Romance & Powerful Suspense!” Would this not get your attention? Furthermore, when you glanced at the Book Description and saw words like “Hot, Sassy, and Intriguing” admit that it would surely catch your interest.
That’s called promoting the book. It’s not only necessary, it’s vital! When you have the power over the merchandise, there’s no end of the things you can do to help push the product.
How about free days? Many of you refuse to give your work away, thinking you’ll be losing money. Baloney! There are millions of readers in the world who want to find you, want to support you and read your work. It’s up to you to wave at them and say “Here I am!” How better than by giving them a small taste of your voice, a glimpse of what a genius you are, a reason for them to rush and buy everything else you’ve written.
Sure can’t do any of this if your work is controlled by anyone else.
Nor can you be involved with a wonderful group of
Best-Selling Authors like those in the
Or GIVE away FREE books!!!
Men are scum, and no one can tell Sadie any different. It’s why she stays away from them. Until a crazy, hotshot soldier runs her down with his convertible. Now because she’s bruised and sore, she's stuck having to accept his help in her elite dog-walking business. Just her luck that some of the expensive pets go missing and Liam decides the puppy-mill rumour needs to be investigated. And once they’re forced to spend more time together, darned if a spark doesn’t start to ignite.
Without the angel forcing him to brake, Liam could have killed the gorgeous girl who ran in front of his car to save a little boy. He owed the rescuer big time and would pay his debt no matter that she acted cranky and became more difficult with every meeting. After all, how hard could it be to walk a bunch of mangy mutts?
