ARE YOU KINDLING YET?

We've all heard about the Kindle readers, but I don't hear authors discussing the unique opportunity to put their own work up on Kindle. I uploaded 7 flash fiction stories called "Over In a Flash," created it with a vision of how I wanted it presented, priced it and sent it out to the world.



Now my publisher, Billie Johnson of Oak Tree Press, is putting my novels on Kindle. We discussed it over the phone and she's agreed to offer a service for others who do not want to mess with the… Continue

HOW BIG IS YOUR BOX?

HOW BIG IS YOUR BOX?



Talk about diminishing venues to speak and sign, difficulty getting book sales and name recognition makes me wonder--how far out of the box are you willing to think?



I live in a small town, pop. 23,000 (Lemoore). Ten miles away is a larger town (Hanford). Forty miles away is the Big City (Fresno).



I lived in the Big City over 25 years and was never able to get a signing or even a book launch. The local newspaper ignores local authors in… Continue

SPEEDING DOWN THE INFORMATION HIGHWAY

When does promotion start?

When my first book, FOOLS RUSH IN, came out in 2006, I was a novice at promotion. I did pretty well, but the Internet did not have much blogging or all the websites available for promotion. I felt much was a waste of my time. I had more important things to do than sift through the Internet.

MURDER ON THE HIGH SEAS: A CRUISE TO DIE FOR

I just returned from a trip to the Mexican Caribbean. It was a cruise saluting Veterans, very patriotic (I am a Vietnam Era vet). I was on a panel of authors talking to the vets about writing their memoirs. The cruise was terrific! We got together later with the travel agent who pulled together the trip and pitched the idea of a mystery cruise. I came up with the title: Murder On the High Seas: A Cruise To Die For.



I heard today that the travel agent can pull it together by next… Continue
