#FreeIndieFriday: Dry Land

This week, I was inspired to start a new post category by Author Jennifer Anne Seidler. While I believe no author should have to give their hard work away for free, this isn’t a perfect world. And if an author chooses to offer their books for free, then I’m going to try my damndest to move as many of those books and get them as close to the Amazon #1 spot as possible. Who’s with me?


So meet Jennifer Anne Seidler and her debut novel, Dry Land, which will be FREE 7/31 – 8/2!!! Continue reading “#FreeIndieFriday: Dry Land”

Authors, Really, Don’t Do These Things….

This deserves a reblog!

Elyse Salpeter

postNow, before I begin this post, I need to declare that I’ve probably committed a few of these less blatant faux pas myself during my start in publishing. To a new author, you think it’s not quite a big deal, but they really are. The more you’re immersed in the publishing social media industry, the more you learn the do’s and dont’s. What irks me are not the newbies, but the people who have been publishing for years who continue to make these mistakes or these “not cool” actions. I’ve spoken to authors directly about it and many of them have listed why they do them. One told me “they were too lazy to do anything else.” Another told me that they were too desperate and figured “why not?”

Well, the why not and too lazy won’t help any of us be successful and more than that, it won’t help…
