"I'm happy to endorse Linton's book on how to do trailers. I've used it and it's great. The thing with trailers is this. Many readers are visually oriented. Hey, they watch TV and YouTube, etc. I put my trailers on my book page on…"

"Simplest and cheapest way to make a trailer is to use Powerpoint. I purchase use rights for artwork from Dreamstime.com and/or use public domain images, and Powerpoints animation features to create the visuals. For my novel The Killing Depths, I…"

"Yeah, I looked at their rates. Having been in advertising for some years, I know they have to have the stats to back them up. Apparently, they do. Thanks. "

"Giving books away free via KDP is no longer worth it in regard to sales. (In regard to obtaining reviews and potential  readers of your other work, it may still be worth it.) See if you can get a BookBub ad. You pay through the nose, but it IS…"

Crown Point, Indiana
About Me:
Hi! I’m Bill Davis, author of Pagan Moon, a Mystery/Thriller with an occult/supernatural undercurrent.

I started writing Pagan Moon some years ago. With the encouragement of some amateur writers who met every week to share their works, my story developed. To survive I became a casino dealer. That’s where I met my wife. We’ve been happily married for fourteen years.

I acquired an agent, but after about eighteen months of proposing Pagan Moon to every major publisher, he was unable to sell it. Then I managed to get a contract with a small publisher, but the firm went out of business. (How lucky could I be?) I decided to put it out myself, and though it received a number of 5 Star reviews, I didn't have enough resources to properly market it. While this was going on, I completed two additional novels in the series.

Then Pagan Moon sat in my closet for several years while I dealt with some health issues—nearly three years of kidney dialysis and then a kidney transplant. During this time I was still working full time as a casino supervisor. Unfortunately, all this left little time for writing.

With Kindle technology now available, I' m making it available to a much wider audience and at an extremely attractive price.

I hope to have the next two novels in the Mike Gage Thrillers series published within the next 12 to 18 months.
