Are your books on audio?

I've just recently had my books recorded as audio books and I asked one of my Voice Over Artists to write a guest blog post about what she does. The result is now up on my personal blog:

And, as always, Awesome Romance Novels continues to offer romance authors cheap promo:

as someone who used to do some voice acting...spot on. it's a tough business, and those that pay attention to the little details rise to the top.

A quick look at "14"

A brief and mostly spoiler free look at the cool and Stoker-nominated novel 14 by Peter Clines.

awesome...I've been eyeing this one.

And for Flash Friday I kind of tore apart Happy Valentines Slay....so much the editor felt the need to comment which sparked another topic here:

I really hate giving bad reviews. I feel almost obligated to give a good one if someone gives me their work. But to be true to myself I didn't just give a good review for that sake.

It's a horror novel that had some good ideas, but fell short in execution. Mainly because of such weak characters.

I can't remember where that book came up for me - a request, or a freebie, or something, but I didn't opt in. It only took the first line of the blurb to make my decision:

Quote:
How Does a Hot, Sexy Mother Who Hates Her Daughter Put Her Ultimate Plan Into Action?
It's not just the "Hot" and the "Sexy", or even the "Ultimate" in that sentence, it's also the fact that for some reason the whole thing is in title case.

I didn't go any further after that. I know it's a bit harsh, but I've got this thing about the first sentence I see. If it's a disaster, I take it as an ill omen.

yeah the hot sexy mother thing doesn't make sense. It doesn't even play a factor really. It was an ok freshmen effort. but he needs to work on characterization for his next one

I see my book is second up on your list, which delights me. But you forgot the exclamation point!

How to Get Your Book Displayed on Ebook Reader Websites During Giveaways

I've found ebook reader websites so useful during promotional giveaways that I've written a blog with tips I've found so far. This includes links to more than 50 sites which invite submissions for free, which ones need a month or two weeks' advance notice, which ones only want to hear on the days of a giveaway etc. Also, how to prepare in the weeks leading up to a promotion. Hope it helps you out. It made a big difference for me using these techniques. More info in the blog post on http://www.adeleward.blogspot.com

The world of self-publishing is constantly changing. What worked last year isn't working this year. With much regret, I'm changing my strategy. My short stories, which have always been free, are now going to be $.99. I hope my readers forgive me for doing so.

I explain my reasoning in this blog post. http://ryallon.blogspot.com/2013/02/...es-are-no.html
