Just want to say hello to all you historical-novel authors and to let you know I feel your pain when your research is stalled by such things as burned libraries and fires at old official records depositories.

Profile Information

Favorite Book
Knowing Daniel
About Me:
My pseudonym is Mick Jett . I'm the author of the historical novel "Knowing Daniel", the novella-length true-crime story "My Friend the Felon" and several short stories which have been published in magazines and newspapers. I'm a veteran journalist who writes both true and fictional stories.
Most of my professional experience was gained at The Miami Herald, where I worked under the name of Floyd Jett as copy desk chief, assistant news editor, national news editor, feature writer and page designer.
My front page design for the Herald won the Arnold Cup .

One of my stories was used by Tropic Magazine as a model for its readers' writing contest.

While at The Herald I moonlighted as a correspondent for the British news agency Reuters and my stories were published globally.
I also contributed to the New York Times Names in Bold column and compiled the weekly Miami best-seller list for that paper.
I was recruited by the Herald during a nationwide talent hunt while working as an editor and writer for The Tennessean in Nashville.
I was a sports columnist, cub reporter and eventually copydesk chief for the Montgomery Adverstiser in Alabama before being recruited by the Tennessean. I live in Tallahassee, FL. where I wite novels at night.

Hi, I came across your blog, and I thought you would be the perfect person to contact.

My name is Jay Siva, the founder of EZBuyButton.com, an easy 'buy book' widget for authors. I'm contacting you today because I think you and your readers would love to know about the EZBuyButton widget I've created.

It is the most advanced 'buy now' widget for selling books. I make it free for authors and publishers, worldwide, to quickly and easily create and use our EZBuyButton widget to place on their website or blog to immediately increase the sales of their books, especially if their books are listed for sale in more than one retail store. I made it super easy, with just a few clicks they just copy & paste a piece of code onto their website/blog, and they're done.

The widget allows website visitors to select which device they'd like to use to read the author's book, and then select their preferred retail store that they'd like to purchase the book from. It also geolocates the visitor's location and will send the visitor to the correct country specific retail store so that they can buy the author's book. The widget is also fully customizable, and the author will have access to detailed real-time statistics of the use of their widget.

I would like to invite you to visit my website, and try out the EZBuyButton widget. I hope you find that my widget will be useful to you and your readers, including all the authors, literary agents, and publishers you're in contact with.

My website is http://www.ezbuybutton.com.

If you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer them for you. Thank you for your time.

kindest regards,
Jay Siva

Hi, Mick!

Welcome to Book Blogs! I'm Kate, a young adult author. My debut novel Taste has just been released by Crescent Moon Press last April 30, 2012. 


At Barinkoff Academy, there's only one rule: no students on campus after curfew. Phoenix McKay soon finds out why when she is left behind at sunset. A group calling themselves night students threaten to taste her flesh until she is saved by a mysterious, alluring boy. With his pale skin, dark eyes, and mesmerizing voice, Demitri is both irresistible and impenetrable. He warns her to stay away from his dangerous world of flesh eaters. Unfortunately, the gorgeous and playful Luka has other plans.

When Phoenix is caught between her physical and her emotional attraction, she becomes the keeper of a deadly secret that will rock the foundations of an ancient civilization living beneath Barinkoff Academy. Phoenix doesn’t realize until it is too late that the closer she gets to both Demitri and Luka the more she is plunging them all into a centuries old feud.

Grab your copy now at:

Amazon
Barnes & Noble

I hope you enjoy your stay here! Lots of great people and interesting topics. If there's anything you might need, please don't hesitate to leave a comment on my page.

Sincerely,

Kate
