Book Link

I fix the book link on the cover pix.

At least I think I did. :)

 I guess it didn't save when I attached it. It should take you to my book's amazon page.

Fire is still in chapter two. I just can' t seem to sit down and work on it. I stare at the page and something from further on in the book flitters across my mind but I push it away. So I don't get anything done. I only got seven months to get it done before Jano.

I did do a page on the Florida getaway...

There's a promo group that does social media promotions which only cost a very minimum amount. I think I'll do one of their deals next week after I get some money. I need exposure so I think this is a good way to do it.  After all I've been doing FB promo groups and nothing seems to be happening. So ain't no harm to try a different track.

I hope those of you who have read my book, enjoyed it and will review.

Slow going

Both versions of my book are out now.

I sold a few kindle on amazon and a few hard copies personally. Now all I need are reviews.  :)

The kindle version of my book is on both Kindle Unlimited and in Kindle Owner Lending Library so if you want a free taste (or should that be the whole shebang :) ), go for it.  

I still haven't got past chapter two on Fire. I plan to work on it tonight, get at least a page done.  That's the plan from now on: to get at least a page a night. 

Two of the Facebook pages have accepted me, but I'm still pending on some more. I need the exposure to readers and other writers.

It's slow going, but I expected that. After all, I'm a new writer and nobody knows me. I write my books in what I call the movie style. It's as if I'm seeing a movie unfold before my eyes. The story is brisk, fast paced, and full of dialog.  Flowery language is not for me. :)

I hope you will try my book and tell me what you think, either here or through a review on amazon. I want to improve my next book so you the reader will enjoy it more.

Books, books

Well, I got the few hard copies I ordered.

I put two in BookMarx which is a bookstore downtown, just a few blocks from where I live.  I also put one book in the library system.   Hopefully, both will give me exposure.

My neighbor bought one. And the publisher took one. A couple of people pre-ordered the Kindle version.

Oh, I changed the date for the Kindle. It's May 14th now instead of the 22nd.

I've been reading fanfiction at night instead of working on Fire. I'm just so addicted. I know I need to get going on Fire but if I run across a good fanfiction I read it instead. I did work on Fire's book bible the other night since there was only a short fanfiction to read so at least I did something.  :)

I sent requests to a few groups on Facebook that have to do with fantasy readers and writers. I'm still pending on them...

I just so excited that I got my book published. I've wanted to write since I was a kid and never finished a book. New ideas always sidetracked me. I've got like 40 books started, but this is the first I finished.  And now it's published.

I was thinking about writing a short story about the Florida vacation my characters take and put it here as a thank you to those who follow me.  What do you think? Would you like that?


P.S.  Don't forget Teaser 1 gives you a rough taste of my book.

Book is out!

The hard copy of my book is out!

The Kindle version is still on pre-order 'il May 22.

Below is the link:

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=earth+reader+riffey

I'm so excited. I got my first book published!

Fire is still in chapter two of course.  I need to get in gear.

Laundry is sooo boring. I just put my wash in the dryer so maybe I'll work on Fire while the dryer is running.

Or I'll read one of my downloaded fanfiction.  I am so addicted to them.

Well, my stomach's growling so I think a snack should be first. :)

I'll write another entry in a few days.

May is here!

17 days 'til my book is out!

The beta readers have returned their review and the corrections have been uploaded. It's ready as it'll ever be. I've ordered a few books to start.  Hopefully, others will order as well when it comes out.  I don't want to be the only one to order any. :)

I'm thinking about doing a give away. I thought if people did reviews on amazon then I'd put them in a drawing for a  XL t-shirt that has the book's cover symbol. What do you think?

Fire is still in chapter two. I totally didn't work on it the last two days. I've been reading other things instead of working on my second book. There's seven months left in the year and I plan to have Fire done by January so I can work on Water during Jano.  Best get myself in gear!

But seriously what do you think about doing a drawing?

 That's what's on my mind right now.
