#ThePursual launch week in Gifs

The week started off hectic

but, I expected it cos it was launch week for my first book, THE PURSUAL

I started seeing reviews immediately on Amazon and Goodreads!

And luckily, they were positive

And then, the issues began

Apple iBooks and Google Play didn’t list my book on time

Then my Instagram page DISAPPEARED!

Yup. I just took a deep breath on that one.

And focused on writing book 2, The Paladin, networking and advertising.

Week 1 is almost over and so far, so good. I’m going to end the week with another slice of chocolate cake.

Have a great weekend and stay happy!

Crimson Sky

Dusk is an eerie time to be outside. After all everyone’s heard the horrible tales of what happens on Hallows Eve. But all it took was one smile and I stepped out of the shelter with him.

As we strolled hand in hand my gaze flicked to the sky and I gasped. Staring back at me was a cascade of crimson-hued brushstrokes.

“Told you it would be worth your while,” he whispers, his voice thick with the same awe I feel.

Learning & Loving Story Archetypes

When author and writing guru (can I call her that) Becca Puglisi makes a recommendation, I daresay it’s a good idea to consider it. And that’s how I ended up at Sara LeTourneau’s website and Archetypes.com learning about character archetypes.

What I really want to read

Have you ever happened upon a book and loved the title or context so much that you wanted it in your hands that very moment?

I’ve got to say, Win The Political Posting War: Social Media Strategies to Silence the Online Opposition is currently the book doing that to me.

With all the politalk I encounter on social media and even with the people in my everyday life, I not only want to own this book, but also want to hand it out to everyone I meet and tell them,

I’ve put this book on my wishlist (I’ve got to sell a few books before I can indulge on this or anything, frankly, but that’s another story). But, you don’t have to. You can find Win The Political Posting War at Amazon here. Let’s all keep in mind that this book is simply a gag book to encourage us all to stop fighting about politics on social media.

Till next time,

Fabulous Free Reads

 

Looking for some good books this weekend? Want them for free?

Image may contain: 1 person, text
Then, take advantage of a great multi-genre book offering. There are over 20 books available and they are all free!!! You should also consider the many other books from the other authors in the showcase, such as Helen Christian’s The Dowager’s Mail Order Husband (if you like romance). For those who enjoy a great Urban Fantasy book, try Descent by Felicia Beasley (it’s got an incubus and demons). And for the speculative fiction lovers, consider The Missing Loved Ones from TNae Wilcox. It’s a collection of short stories with everything from candy boxes disguised as black holes to tales about cloned children.
Oh, see that first one in the banner above? That’s written by me. It’s called THE PROEM and if you haven’t read it yet, you truly should. The story is the prequel to the upcoming THE PURSUAL. Here’s a short blurb –
Falling in love is dangerous in a world where power and profit are key. Neith was fine with this reality until she met Invier and now she’s had a change of mind. But, as genuine as their love is, the prospect of a relationship won’t be an easy feat.

Introducing … Bel

We’ve met Neith, Invier and Landen Sohr already and now it’s time for another character to receive a proper introduction.

Please welcome Bel!

Her name is short for Belema and she’s Neith’s best friend. They’ve grown up together and their families are very close.

Bel often acts as the voice of reason for her bestie and has different ideas on certain aspects of the world they live in. You’ve got to read the books to see how what happens with her and her relationships.
