Do independent authors price ebooks too low?

09/08/2014

This morning, Amazon sent an email out to independent authors who publish ebooks through them, asking them to weigh in on the argument between Amazon and Hachette. If you're not aware of what's going on, Amazon is trying to 'convince' Hachette to charge less for its ebooks.

Happy book launch day to Monica La Porta

05/08/2014

Monica was one of the first writers I met when I entered the world of social media. Not only is she a wonderful writer, she's a lovely, kind, helpful person as well. I'm sure many of you will know Monica's writing through the Ginecean Chronicles, her thought provoking dystopian series where men are slaves within a matriarchal society.

Introducing Shrouded Soul's book trailer

04/08/2014

In my last post, I explained why I'd chosen not to make my own book trailer this time and how I found a voice for Kim. Today, I'd like to unveil the amazing book trailer for Shrouded Soul (Hidden: Book 3).

Finding a voice for Kim

02/08/2014

I've go to admit, I wasn't planning on doing a book trailer for Shrouded Soul (Hidden: Book 3). I made my own trailers for Trinity and the first two Hidden books (Reaper's Rhythm and Broken Bargain), but none of them were successful at marketing tools.

Things I've learnt in two years of being an author-publisher

28/07/2014

First, thanks to Chuck Wendig for the term author-publisher.It's been roughly two years since I published Trinity and what a journey it's been since then. In a couple of weeks, I'll be releasing my fourth book (the third book in the Hidden series) and shortly after that I'll be heading off to WorldCon as a trader.
