This has been a busy week for me even though I haven’t been blog busy. I have also been reading a lot.
I want to introduce you to a couple of people you may or may not know. First, I am reading a book by Patrick O’Bryon titled “Corridor of Darkness”. It is a 20th century Historical Fiction about 1930s pre-war Germany, and the coming of the Nazi era that will knock your socks off. There is everything in this book from the thrill of espionage and suspenseful duels to the enchantment of romance. I will be doing a full review later this week but I would like you to do something for me. Patrick is a self-published indie author who just released his book a few weeks ago.
Go ahead, and do it! It even has pictures and humor. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
I’ll wait right here. The page will open in another window. It will only take a minute. I want to introduce you to his beautiful writing style, even if you choose not to read his whole book today. He is a wonderful, well-traveled author and I think you might like to get to know him.
A tiny taste of a marvelously expressive writing style, huh? Don’t you agree?
Also, if you are struggling with how to get exposure or market your books, you should get to know both Charles Yallowitz, creator of The Legends of Windemere series in fantasy, and Chris McMullen, who has written many books on a variety of subjects, but most significantly, has two books on self-publishing and much information on both publishing and marketing on his site. He is also responsible for organizing the Read Tuesday promo event that debuts December 10th. The knowledge, support, and helpful expertise of these two marketing gurus are powerful.
This morning I woke up to these figures on Amazon:
- Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #2,573 Paid in Kindle Store (See Top 100 Paid in Kindle Store)
- #35 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Literary Fiction > Historical
- #97 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Historical Fiction
- #100 in Books > Literature & Fiction > Genre Fiction > Historical
I still haven’t done my sensory deprivation chamber experience, but it is on my list, along with putting up Christmas lights, cleaning house, getting the tree up, having my annual pre-Christmas luncheon for my local girlfriends. There is a lot to keep me busy this week.
