TROJAN – Chapter 1

// 1: CALLING CARD “We’ve got a problem.” Carter sat up in his bed and checked the clock. 4 a.m. This must be bad. He mumbled into the phone, “Damien, this better be urgent.” Damien’s voice was hyperactive and the words came tumbling out. Carter took a moment to let each one process, “I’ve discovered a network breach.” “Sounds bad, but why is it 4 a.m. wake up call bad?” “It’s a TLA network.” Carter sat up. Their Three Letter Acronym clients expected 24 hour support and that’s what they paid for. He needed to know how much trouble...

YEAR OF INDIE UPDATE (6 READ, 19 TO GO)

I’m playing catch up with my #YearOfIndie, which was helped greatly by how much I enjoyed this latest book. I initially received an Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) but due to my delays in reviewing the book and because of how much I enjoyed it I ended up buying a copy anyway! I suppose I should probably remind you that this weeks book was Murder at the Playgroup by Liz Hedgecock: As usual I put a review up on Amazon and Goodreads. Here is what I had to say: This is my first cozy mystery and it was a great...

YEAR OF INDIE UPDATE (5 READ, 20 TO GO)

Wow, if I thought the last delay was long, this one took the biscuit! I didn’t forget about my #YearOfIndie challenge even whilst I was busy creating the Lucky Beggar Trilogy paperback edition, which was super fun but also way more time consuming than i was expecting.

I am glad I did because this is a complex narrative with a lot of moving...

Level Up

Level Up I lay in the dark counting down the minutes until my birthday, my eyes wide open, waiting for the chime and the little green box. I wonder which random stat is going to get boosted this year. Last year it was +50 horniness and -10 judgment. That one really hurt, my judgement wasn’t that great to begin with, and it’s not like I was short on horniness. It’s been a pretty rough year for everyone as I adjusted to my new stats. I really hope this year will be a boost to my charm. I could use...

Book Promotion Experiment

As I mentioned previously it doesn’t necessarily make financial sense to extensively market your first book. However, when you have two or three books in a series the financials start to add up a little more. This leaves the million dollar question as to how to spend your marketing budget (which presumably isn’t $1 million). There are lots of ways to advertise your books, including facebook ads, AMS, YouTube ads and countless more. For this particular experiment I wanted to test out the effectiveness of the book promotion companies. These companies will send out emails, tweets and facebook posts about your...
