My Daily Chatter – Nicola C. Matthews (Paranormal Romance)

Hello Seria Readers:

Need a holiday recovers?  Check out another amazing indie author: Nicola C. Matthews and her Before the Sun Rises series.

This independent author and publisher has a passion for paranormal sexy romance.  It’s well written and worth your time and effort.

Clan of the Claw is on pre-order now for .99 on Amazon.

Left for dead by The Vampire High Council, Ethereal Oscurita is finding it very difficult to adjust to life as one of only two known lycanthrope hybrids to have ever existed.

Torn between her love for two vampires and the man killed by the very hybrid who had created her, she is no longer content to spend her days hiding in the basement of the master vampire’s country estate. She needs time – time away from a disintegrating love triangle, time to heal, but more importantly, time to figure out who she really is.

Ethereal sets out to fulfill a promise to Nikkolas Redpaw, the werebear who sacrificed himself for the sake of her family while fighting the Shield of Humanity.

She travels to the northern most regions of Alaska in a search to find any surviving member of his once great clan. What she discovers there could be the beginning of something truly wonderful – or the end to a tale five years in the making.

Allies will be made, friendships tested, and old wounds reopened. Will Alaska hold the key to Ethereal’s happily ever after, or a bitter ending to a life only half-lived?

In a distinctive mashup of Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles and Laurell K. Hamilton’s Anita BlakeSeries, Nicola C. Matthews’s Before the Sun Rises Series is a fast-paced, action-packed paranormal/science fantasy which poses the age-old question – who will triumph in the war of good vs evil?

My Writing Tip: Free Class From The Comfort of Your Home PC

My #1  goal in life is to teach independent authors they are no longer writers: they are publishers.   Long before your book is published on Amazon, or before it goes wide, the focus should be on marketing.  Your job is to figure out a way to push your book into the hands of as many readers as possible.

My theory is that if you’re going to spend money on improving your skill, you should spend it on digital marketing.  So, the next logical question is: how am I suppose to develop and improve my writing skill? 

The answer: free university classes that you can complete in the comfort of your home.  

Coursera and MIT Open Courseware come to mind.   A quick search of these sites leads to over 100 eLearning opportunities.   Taught at some of the world’s leading institutions all for free.  On your time, in front of your PC or tablet.

The benefits outweigh the disadvantages.  Often you can skip around and just watch the videos you need.  Then, on that rare occasion, you need ‘hands-on’ training, then, by all means, spend the money on a writing development class.  But, for the most part, ditch the seminars and spend that money on digital marketing.

Hint: you can also find free online university classes on digital marketing as well.

My Daily Chatter: Shouting Out Elizabeth Knox

#Romance #Giveaway #ElizabethKnox

Hello Serial Readers –

Looking for a great author to read this weekend?  How about Elizabeth Knox.  I like promoting new indie writers, so I’ll tell you what: the first two people who send me an email at georgefisher123@gmail.com will get a free copy of her latest book Blackjack (Reapers MC Book 1).   There are no rules or requirements, I’ll gift you the ebook Friday afternoon.

Her books are also on Kindle Unlimited.  Help me spread the word – this is a very good upcoming indie author.

 

 

Check out Richard Hummel New Website: DungeonQuestOnline.com

Here’s a cool author with a cool website.  DungeonQuestOnline.com

He’s writing a #GameLit #Saga and from the look of things I want to read it.

Richard’s blog is filled with information.  A character sheet as well as links to #LitRPG and #GameLit resources.

From reading the stats page of the character, Richard seems to know what he’s doing.

I get excited when writers go to this much trouble to introduce their worlds and characters – and the books is TBD, which makes me even more impressed.

My Daily Chatter – Dawn Chapman Sci-Fi Creator and Writer

Hello Serial Readers:

The  TL;DR – Buy Dawn Chapman’s books.  She’s a great writer and her books are well worth the price and the time to read.  5 out of 5 stars.

Today I want to introduce you to an outstanding science fiction and fantasy writer: Dawn Chapman.  Dawn claims to have been developing science fiction stories for over 30 years, but I swear she doesn’t look a day over 25.   Considering I look four days older than dirt, I’m jealous.

Back in 2005, Dawn turned her talents to television and wrote the scrips for a 13-week science fiction series named The Secret King.  Thankfully, for me, she went back into publishing full time in  2010.

Dawn’s latest creation is Desert Runner, an NPC story.  To celebrate her birthday (which was yesterday) she has it free on Amazon for a few days.  Most of us have Kindle Unlimited because we read a lot of books.  All of Dawn Chapman’s books are available in KU.  So, even though this book is free right now, it would be great if we support her by buying it through KU.

Check out Dawn’s blog for the latest info on her projects.   I recommend buying Desert Storm, Desert Born, and Desert Storm (book 3 in the series).  I give all of them 5 stars.

My Daily Chatter – Author Zachariah Dracoulis #GameLit

Hello Serial Readers:

Genre(s): Science Fiction, Fantasy, Entertainment>Role Playing, Cyberpunk and TV/Movie/Video Game Adaptation.

Zachariah Dracoulis makes reading fun.

Zachariah Dracoulis

Anyone who follows #LitRPG and #GameLit on social media knows Zachariah Dracoulis.  He’s well established as a best selling writer with his FRAGGED series and LEGENDS OF TARTHIRIOUS.

But, what you may not know is that Zach spends a lot of time giving back to the indie writing community by promoting other writers with his Facebook group LitRPG Rebels.

As serial readers, we need to support good independent publishers with our downloads and ebook buys.  In part, that is why this website was built.   And, by now you should know that I don’t recommend an author unless the books are good and I’ve actually read a good part of the writer’s catalog.

Zach is no exception; I’ve read most of his books.  I bought Legends of Tarthirious back in February and I read the whole series.  I read Fragged back in July and was also impressed.

Discoverers of these exceptional books have an advantage I didn’t have: they can buy the box set all at once without having to wait on pins and needles for the next installment.

So, give Dracoulis a read.  You’ll be pleased with is writing and it will be time well spent.  He makes reading fun.  And, after all, isn’t that what it’s all about?

Recommendations:

Read FRAGGED The 5 part short story series boxed set.  I give it 4.8 out of 5 stars.

Read LEGENDS OF TARTHIRIOUS the complete series boxed set. 

I give the series 4.7 out of 5 stars.

As most of us are in Kindle Unlimited, you can get the books individually.  So, download them all at once and clear your weekend calendar, order take-out and enjoy.
