2014 Smashwords Books You Have to Read

If you are an author on Smashwords, I have great news! I have downloaded 3 books from Smashwords(they were free) and will be reviewing them first chance I get. Here they are in no particular order. Reviews will be posted here and/or Smashwords, Goodreads, Bn.com, and Amazon.

Game, Set Match

*Revised eBook Edition(as posted on Smashwords(click image for details)

Off the court, tennis star Jason Cartwright’s playboy image is taking a public beating. On the court, he’s down forty-love. A knee injury is shutting down his game, and the paparazzi are splashing his love life on every magazine. A comeback is in order, but the makeover he needs to save his faltering career is in the hands of the woman he loved and left fifteen years ago.

While single-mom, Izzy Connors, sees people for who they really are through the lens of her camera, even without it, she knows Jason isn’t the star he appears to be. Although his charm and good looks haven’t dimmed since he broke her heart, all she sees is his wasted talent and playboy lifestyle.

Can Izzy put the past behind her and help Jason get his game, and his image, back on track? Or will the click of her camera shatter his world as well as his heart?
She's Gotta Be Mine (Click image for details)Dumped? For her husband’s high school sweetheart he hasn’t seen in twenty years? Roberta Jones Spivey isn’t going to lay down for that. Instead, she reinvents herself and the new Bobbie Jones—new haircut, new name, new attitude—follows her soon-to-be ex to the small Northern California town of Cottonmouth.

What better way to show him—and his sweetheart—what he’s missing in the brand new Bobbie Jones than taking up with the town’s local bad boy—who’s also reputed to be a serial killer. Nick Angel is devilishly handsome and sexy as all get-out. In a word, perfect.

It’s all going exactly according to plan…until a real murder rocks the little town of Cottonmouth. Of course, Nick didn’t do it…did he?

September eBook freebies and what is book 2.5?

It is a brand new month and September brings with it…Freebies! Yes, for the next few days ALL of my books from Smashwords will be free. They are all in eBook format and can be downloaded in PDF, ePub, Word, etc. Any form you like. This is my way of handing out gifts to everyone.

This is your chance to read some of my inspirational poetry and find out what happens to women when they fall for tall gorgeous genies in my Mark of Fortune fiction series. These books and links to their Smashwords pages can be found on the Books page.

The freebies end Sunday September 15, 2013, so catch ‘em quick!

Next, just what is book 2.5?

I notice some book authors have short novellas that are merely extensions of the complete novel in a series. So for Mark of Fortune, I have not completed book 3 but am working on book 2.5.

This particular book will be a short edition of a character I have fallen in love with. His story must be told well-this is also why it can be challenging as well to get my mind to be in his realm. Is he a genie? Human? What?

I will not tell yet, but it will be something to look forward to until the next books are cranked out.

Until then, enjoy the freebies and check back here often for other Mark of Fortune news.

Tracking An Author: What Audience Do I Write For? Infusing the Fiction, and Free eBooks

I'm an English Major-Now What?

Writer's Digest Free eBook for a limited time

Keeping you up to date with my writing and how you can embark on your own journey, I have learned a few things this past week and thought I’d share it with you.

First, I discovered that writing shouldn’t be tedious and about cramped fingers. It is an exploration of what you know and wish to know. Writing is a powerful tool for me because I feel I can say more and see how the words flow onto the page/screen and play with them a little. I can do this verbally, but thats what www.audibles.com is for. And it is a great venture to get into.

These days its more about conveying a message than just shouting, “I’m a writer!” What am I writing? Who am I writing this for? As a writer, or should I say storyteller, you must convey your thoughts in al mediums to reach the crowd. eBook, Print, Audible, and maybe even animation/video. I certainly only have 2 out of 4 for my own book but will be working more on conveying my idea and will discuss more about multiple formats in a later post. For now consider why you are writing and whom you are writing for to generate a pre-marketing scheme. For example: I write to share a thought or “many” speculative thoughts. I wish to share these thoughts with the young adult group of readers. Not because of the upstart in teen reading, but my style seems to flow in that direction, plus I feel I never left my teens.

Next subject: Infusing a memoir with fiction seems to be what makes a story more uncanny yet ineresting. Think of Robert R. McCammon‘s Boy’s Life story. It reads like a memoir but infused with some supernatural elements we (may) have never experienced. What conversations, episodes, or feelings springs up from time to time? Have you thought about either planting some pieces of it in a memoir or using it to fuel your fiction? I certainly think it can help.

To get you on the right track to writing, Writer’s Digest is offering FREE ebooks for Back -to School and it is running from August 15-22, so get in on it now by going here!
