Halloween is fast approaching, and if you're looking for something to read, you can download the current books in the Olivia Chronicles for free on 9/29/14 and 9/30/14. I'm also running two free days 10/30/14 and 10/31/14. So, if you want a free eBook copy and you missed my previous promotions, you are in luck!
If you are a Kindle Unlimited member or a Prime member who uses the Lending Library, you can read for free at any time. This
We're nearing the three month mark of the release of Brigitte's Cross. I've heard personally from a few folks on their response to the book, and the overwhelming response is that they like Book II better than Book I, overall, as do I. I'm working on some outlines right now for Book III (as yet untitled) and am wondering what readers of the first two would like to see more of in that final book in the series. More romance? More magic? I can assure you there will be some fighting going on, and all of the characters from the first two books (those alive and undead at any rate) will be back for the final book in the trilogy.
I'm also working on Book I of the Garnier family saga (also untitled so far), and I can tell already that it's got a bit of a different flavor to it. I'm excited about both projects.
I've been fortunate to be included in some of Brandi Granett's latest HuffPo pieces:
"6 Pieces of Writing Advice From First-Time Writers over 40" and "Four Great Ways to Find Indie Books You'll Love."
That's about all of the news I have to share right now; I'll be writing like crazy in a week, so this week is all about getting some chapter outlines down so I can just roll.
As a reader, I have to confess that I'm in love with Kindle Unlimited. If you're not familiar with it yet, it's Amazon's "Netflix for Books." Amazon isn't the only one who has done this, but I suspect it's a game changer, at least it is for me.
Oyster and Scribd have done similar services; I was one of the early adopters of Oyster, and while I loved being able to grab a book while traveling and read on my phone, I eventually let it go. I am a Kindle lover. I have an iPhone and an iPad, but most of my reading is done on the Kindle (the old school keyboard one). So, as a reader, Kindle Unlimited lets me binge read on my preferred device.
The other advantage? As a writer who indie publishes, Kindle Unlimited has opened a whole new door for me. I have run Kindle freebie promos and have been in the Kindle Prime Lending Library for a long time, but I'm getting more Kindle Unlimited attention than I could have guessed.
So, if you love your Kindle like I do (or just love the Kindle app), give the free month of Kindle Unlimited a go. I'll still be using the two freebie days I have left soonish for those of you who are not KU members or who want to own a free copy without having to return it on loan, but I think you'll find the $9.99 a month is worth it if you're an avid reader of eBooks.
The other game changer (potentially) is that in the battle between Hachette and Amazon fell out this lovely little golden egg for Indie writers--We will now be able to have a pre-order button!
If that's not enough to get me off my butt and write more, I'm not sure what is.
Angelic lives in Kansas City, Missouri with her wife, two loyal dogs, and two rotten cats. When she's not writing, she's likely walking the dogs, working on her food blog, or working her day job. Like her friend and fellow writer Joseph S. Walker, she's a "recovering academic."
