Book Review: Your First 1,000 Copies

41pINRHrsgL._SX310_BO1,204,203,200_Your First 1000 Copies: The Step-By-Step Guide to Marketing Your Book by Tim Grahl

This book wasn’t what I expected it to be. I was hoping for more examples of how to complete each step of his selling process. Instead, I got generic advice like “write great content” or “come up with some ideas for extras for readers.” Not very helpful to generate creative marketing ideas. The author examples he did point to were mostly non-fiction writers, so if you’re a fiction writer, a lot of the advice in the book might not even apply to you. That’s not the kind of book I thought I was buying, but I suppose he succeeded in making me complete the sale, so there’s that.

What I Found Most Helpful: He gave great suggestions on how to get more people to sign up to your mailing list. I haven’t used them long enough to determine if they’re as successful as he says they are, but my website looks more professional because of it.


The Full Moon

The Full Moon is available for preorder and will be released February 6, 2016.

Kathy and her sister, Samantha, have always been a team. Throughout their time as witches, they’ve taken out more than their share of bad guys. But after Kathy meets Will, who she learns is a demonic Dark Knight, her loyalties begin to change.

Meanwhile, Samantha doesn’t trust Will or his intentions. Still, Kathy can’t help but feel tempted by the dark side as she falls deeper in love with Will. Crossing over would give Kathy the freedom to do whatever she wanted with her magic. No rules. No limitations. It would also mean breaking the bond she has always shared with her sister, who has made it clear that she wants nothing to do with the dark side.

When Will proposes they take over the underworld, Kathy loves the idea of having power. But it also leaves her with a choice that will change her life: abandon her family and the life she has always known, or give up the love of her life forever.
