Show Hard Luck Hank Some Love

I’ve mentioned this guy’s work before: Steven Campbell. He’s the author of the Hard Luck Hand series, which BTW is amazingly hilarious and fun to read. With book titles like Screw the Galaxy and Prince of Suck (featuring the aforementioned “Hank”), how can you not want to just read them out of pure curiosity? Anyway, I was very pleased to see that the latest installment in the Hard Luck Hank series, Suck My Cosmos is now available on Audible. Check it out here. 

Book Tangle

So recently I launched my ebook, Allies and Enemies: Fallen to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo and Apple via a service called Book Tango. I used them because I was fearful that the format for my ebook would not work correctly across all the various platforms and they could do it for me for a modest fee. It seemed like an easy one stop shop for getting everything done.  Well, it ain’t that easy. It’s over two weeks now and I have no idea of how my book is doing in terms of sales. Therefore I have no idea if...

Book Review: Break Away by Jeff Favreau

So, this week I’m trying something new. I’m going to start posting book reviews for my fellow indie authors. My first victim, Jeff Favreau’s Break Away. It’s the first of a two parter, horror/thriller with Darryl Dixon’s favorite cross bow playpal, zombies… If the zombie apocalypse were to arrive tomorrow, any Walking Dead fan probably has mused how they would react. Some may envision themselves as heroes, rising to the challenge of fending off the hordes of living dead. Others might fantasize about taking shelter in a deserted shopping mall until the affair blows over. (Anyone that’s seen the movie...

BookTango and SFF Marketing Podcast

I did it! Back on the 25th, I submitted my file to BookTango. Tiny internet genies are turning Allies and Enemies: Fallen into a real book as I type this. If you’re not familiar with BookTango, it’s a service that helps folks like me sort through the whole getting your book formatted and distributed. I’m not confident I’d be able to properly format a book for use on multiple platforms (Amazon’s Kindle apparently uses something different than iBooks like ground up unicorn horn or something) so I sprang for the fee to have the doc converted. I’m STILL waiting on...

So THAT Happened…

Because of the interesting world of instant access to info, you, dear reader, were more likely to have learned about the decision of Kindle Press to pass over Allies and Enemies: Fallen for the Kindle Scout program before I. Good thing it wasn’t something life-threatening and/or embarrassing. Right? (That’s OK. I know you’ve got my back and would have found a way to send carrier pigeon or fleet-footed messenger to get me the news.) I have learned a great deal through this experience with Kindle Scout. Here are a few things that I’ve learned or have happened during this experience:...
