Books: Publishing, Reading, Writing

READERS will also find this interesting (and they can *see below how they may help), but …

This post is mainly for all you angst-ridden authors out there who moan and groan about how little promotion and publicity you receive for the books you publish. Yes, it’s true, there are definitely fewer outlets reviewing books or interviewing authors. So what are we supposed to do to get the word out and attract new readers to our work?

I have a cunning plan!

When I ePublished my first novel, I received “some” attention (i.e. Not a lot …) for my efforts, but I carried on regardless and continued to promote other authors, as well as my own books, through my business Alberta Books Canada. Then I moved back to the Caribbean and become much more involved in the online writing community, especially with regards to indie authors around the world who…

I Have A Dream …

Story Empire

Hi folks, Harmony here. It’s great to see you today. And, today being Martin Luther King Day, what better topic to talk about than the power of the pen?

From the beat of a pen to the beat of a heart. One pen, one essay, one speech, one book, can change the world. The pen is the tongue of the mind. With it, we can achieve great things. As did Martin Luther King. Perhaps his best known speech is his ‘I have a dream’, in which he declared, ‘… today … will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.’ And it most certainly did.

At many points throughout a lifetime, we will go in search of words. Perhaps to mourn a death, cele01-pen-walkingbrate a birth or a union, or maybe to offer a heartfelt thanks. Sometimes, these words come…

The blurb

The terrorist leader and financier Matt Jacobs figured out a plan to eliminate the President. He is relying on John Cannon’s stature as a hero to help him carry it off. John finds himself walking the fine line of pretending to help Matt while trying to figure out a countermeasure to the plan.

The third book in the John J. Cannon Trilogy brings together two strong wills for a showdown. The question to be answered is who will feel the satisfaction that the achievement of justice delivers? John, Matt or neither?

Review Of She Lights Up The Dark


the second of the November Snow books by AM Manay
is a great book and may even better than the first book She Dies at the End.
it certainly adds layers to already well drawn characters. it also gives November problems with feeding! however, i have problems with her new power particulary that it does not drain her enough and this is why i give it three stars!

Making sense of life: putting your memoir in poetic discourse (writing prompt)

Business in Rhyme

Dent Blanche im Nebel, 4000er im Kanton Wallis, Schweiz. Alps of Switzerland

Following this post published few weeks ago, it occurred to me: there is always something we haven’t told yet. A story, an event or memory that we shy from for some reason, that we avoid thinking about, talking about. And I don’t mean talking to others, but to ourselves. That internal conversation (or lack of it), has a subtle impact on our day to day life governing our decisions and choices in ways we are not even aware of. Our subconsciousness is like a vast ocean where we can drown deep with our feelings or we can strive for the surface to enjoy the sun and blue sky.

Each emotion and memory from the past has hidden opportunity for growth and healing. And these are the main reasons why people engage in writing memoirs. It’s a path of self-exploration, where time, the main ingredient offers different perspectives and lays a…
