Smashwords is having a catalog sale, The Path of the Child is on sale

I am not sure if you are familiar with Smashwords, but there are so many books there in ebook format.  Tomorrow, March 5. 2017, begins a week of discounted books in all genres. A sales catalog will be made available at midnight pacific time and for a solid week, books will be discounted 25%, 50% and 75% off original price.  Many will be free for this week.

My own book, The Path of the Child, is located on page 70 of the group titled over 50,000 words and about half way down. You can click the link and find it. There is a discount code provided as it is discounted by 50% to the price of $ .99.

The Path of the Child is the story of one lonely girls’ transition as she sets out to find her own backstory. A story that has been hidden away from her by her neglectful mother. Melanie is a strong young woman that will have to make many hard decisions but always with the hope of having a life complete with happiness and joy.  The path she travels is uplifting and trying and may be more than one person can handle.  Meet Melanie and share her journey today. I write under the pseudonym of Sojourner McConnell.

Discounted to .99 March 5-11, 2017

 

This is a great opportunity to pick up books and find new authors.  Many authors have several books available all at these deep discounts. This event only runs until the 11th of March, then the prices revert back.  The above links will not show the participating books until midnight PST, that is 3 am Est and 8 am GMT.

Take your nest egg and pick up a few new deep discounted book and have a nice read along. With the prices as they are, it is the perfect opportunity to bulk up that “to be read pile”.

Remember that the best gift you can give an author is an honest review.  It doesn’t take a wordy post, just a few words sharing your opinion of the book.  Authors love it and it helps a new book get a second glance.

I can’t wait to go shopping. See you at Smashwords.

New Year New Exciting Opportunities

2017

Happy New Year!

Sure, I am a few days late. I have been traveling and not able to post new posts. I had some special blog posts for you over the holiday by some special MTW authors and I hope you found some new people to read and follow. I have chosen some amazing authors to post guest articles so I hope you enjoy seeing them this month.  You have already heard from Geoffrey Monmouth a new author from Wales, John Nicholl, and you will be hearing more from authors like Steven Perkins, Jack Kregas, a few women mystery writers that I can’t name just yet and a couple of extra fun surprises. January should be a fun month.

Everyone that knows me, knows by now, that I am super excited to be involved with Mystery Thriller Week  You may not, however, know that I am reviewing almost 40 books for the event. That is nowhere near the number Benjamin Thomas is reading.  That means I will be holding on to my reviews on the mystery and thriller books until February 12th – 22nd.  With the books I have garnered to read, I can tell you I am finding some wonderful writers that really love to bring the thrills, chills, and mysteries to life. I have cozies, psychological thrillers, serial killers, whodunits, amateur detectives, surly detectives, environmental thrillers, anthologies, romantic suspense, and good old FBI with terrorists ready to go, raring to be read, and itching to be reviewed. I have some tucked away, a few scheduled, one or two in the reading process and the rest are lined up one after another to be next on my list. But do not fear, I will get them all finished before the scheduled date.gears

With that being said, I assure you, I will be posting other types of book reviews this month and I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy sharing my joy of books. I have some amazing children’s books, a romance or two and some interesting non-fiction to share.  Plus a few for NetGalley and Blogging for Books. It should be a fun month of reading.

One of the best parts of being on the events team of MTW is organizing and bringing to light some new best-selling indie authors, as well as best-selling traditional authors, along with brand new authors, and seeing them work so well together. It is wonderful to see the mentoring, the exchange of ideas and the social interaction of all these like-minded, yet totally unique individuals.

The best announcement I can make is that if you dash up to the website super-fanwww.mysterythrillerweek.com you can join in as a super fan and be included on all this interaction. You will be given front row seats to all the events in the comfort of your own home.  You will also be given a free book by one of our best-selling authors. This offer is good until January 9th.

To be totally frank with you, we can’t wait to welcome you into the MTW family. So happy 2017, the year of the Mystery Thriller Week and you.

 

Recap of the Indie Author Day Event on Facebook

Let me start by saying that when I first heard of the event I was immediately interested. What a wonderful way to meet other indie authors and learn from them. As an author of an indie publication, the marketing for the book falls on my doorstep.  I can use all the help I can get.

The day started at Midnight EST and I stayed up until 5:30 so that I could support the other authors and make sure they were not alone.  That was the number one fear. That no one would show up for the hour.  It was great to actually see how many readers and writers showed up for each hour.

The questions were interesting and extremely thought provoking. So many people asked for advice on publishing and writing. As an indie author, that is a huge question. Everyone has their own writing schedule and timetable, so it was so enlightening to see how others plan out their writing day.
