From ebook to Paperback!

A word about 'The Secret Keeper.' I've unpublished it at Amazon and Smashwords because I have signed a contract with Harper Collins USA and it will be published as a Trade Paperback, under the William Morrow imprint, during the northern summer of 2013. And it will be re-released as an ebook as well. It's had over 40 five star reviews and sold 42,000 copies in nine months. So in time, it will be in all the major chains and independents everywhere, lots of foreign countries and translated into…See More

I would be interested in opinions about offering work for free, especially when you are building a readership and have more than one work.I've had an interesting experience over the last couple of days. I have three ebooks, on Amazon and in the Smashwords Premiere Catalogue, so they are available in a variety of places. One is a novel, one a book of short stories and one a book of my Dad's letters home during his service as a WWII Spitfire pilot.This third book, "Our Father's War" was done…See More

Julie,

Thanks so much for your advice about the free books. I changed the price on Smashwords and every one else followed suit...except for Amazon, they're dragging their spiked tail, breathing fire, and emitting noxious smoke from their nostrils. It's not easy getting a dragon to do your bidding. How long did it get you to get the beast to submit?

I have all the other sites you mentioned on my to do list: Authors Den, Book Barista, Your Books and Bestseller Bound, but now I have to wrap some presents or I'm going to be fired from my very important elf position by Santa. I bet Santa could take on the dragon and win.

Keep in touch. Happy Holidays and Happy Writing,

Elizabeth Marx

Hey Julie,

Nice to meet you. I'm new to Book Blogs and I was searching through the site and saw that you just went free with one of your titles on Amazon. I have a couple of questions: How did you get it switched to a free category? One of my titles is a novella and I'd like to give it away free for a bit, but for the life of me I can't figure out how to do it on Amazon, its currently 99 cents. The second question is: I know that you got a lot of downloads, are your other titles companions to the free book. And then, finally, what other marketing strategies are you employing? I have four books on Amazon, Smashwords premium distribution and B & N and would love to chat with someone new to the game like myself.

Thanks,

Elizabeth Marx

Welcome to Book Blogs! You’ve definitely come to the right place if you want to network with other book lovers and strut your reviewing stuff. Yippee! 

I’d like to share a couple of awesome opportunities with you. First, Novel Publicity is currently recruiting bloggers for a gigantic holiday book bash. The prizes are insane and include $3,500 in cash, 3 Kindle Fires, 35 autographed books, and free eBooks for any participants who would like them. Sign-up and info is HERE

 

 

 

The other super cool thing I’d like to share with you is news of the ReaderShip. This is a great site for book lovers, because every single week there is a free book available for download. This week it’s the paranormal YA novel, Forbidden Mind by Kimberly Kinrade, and next week it’ll be something new.

Hi there, welcome to Book Blogs!

I’m new myself to the site but so far I've found it a great place to meet other blogger friends, so you’ve definitely come to the right place if you want to network with other book lovers and writers. If you’re a fan of paranormal fiction, please give my debut novel Perpetual Night a look. I’m planning to do a giveaway in the near future GoodReads (Click here for my Author Page). And here’s the link to my blog Diary of a Writer in Progress where I talk about my own experiences becoming a published author and review some books for fellow writers. I'll be happy to follow your blog if you follow mine!

Now tell me about you, your blog, and favorite books!

Gina
