  • This is my debut trilogy. I’ve learned a lot about publishing since it came out 6+ years ago, so when I saw someone giving debut advice on twitter the other day that boiled down to “spend as much as you can on promo/marketing,” I knew I had to speak up. 📚
⠀⠀
Nothing can move the dial like your publisher. I know it feels a bit defeatist to accept this, but it’s the truth. Unless you are independently wealthy, what you invest in your book isn’t going to make a monumental difference, so you might as well budget and be strategic. Do NOT spend all you can. That’s how you blow through an entire advance (which is rarely large to begin with, esp after taxes and agent fees). 📚
⠀⠀
So what do I suggest you spend money on? A website. Social media platforms will come and go, so you want one destination where readers can get all info about you and your books. Most domains are about ten bucks annually. Your hosting will be around $100-150 a year. From there, you can decide if a free Wordpress template will work for your needs. (I paid a flat fee for my site’s template and customized it for my needs.) 📚
⠀⠀
After that? Maybe one type of swag. I like bookmarks. They can have all the info of a business card and serve a purpose for readers. Easy to tote to events. Fairly reasonable to produce. I use gotprint.com and they are insanely fair on pricing with great quality. 📚
⠀⠀
Next, invest in yourself. Try to learn some basic design. You don’t have to buy Photoshop unless you want to. Canva is free. But trust me, what you will want over and over again in this career is professional looking graphics for your website, social media, etc. Learn all you can so you don’t always have to pay for simple stuff. I’m so grateful for my design background. 📚
⠀⠀
After that, experiment with each new title. I’ve tried so much guys. Massive preorder campaigns. Dedicated postcard mailings. Super fancy swag. Storygram tours. They all have their pros/cons but at the end of the day, you can only reach so many people on your own. If you do “as much as you can” you will be broke. So mix it up, and budget, and don’t be pressured into doing all the things. You’ve got bills to pay, too. 📚

  • Regardless of the sales you have made, you should feel so proud of what you have accomplished. You decided one day to write a book, and guess what? You followed through! Right until the end. ▪ My book took me 5 years. Why so long? Because I kept telling myself to give up. Dont waste your time. No one cares. ▪ But I persisted, and now I can proudly say that I am an author, and I hope you all feel the same way too!

  • The horrors of traditional human trafficking mentally destroys its victims. Decades ago, a family of patriarchal extremists sought to corner the black market with a high-end product. Young girls are indoctrinated. Teenagers are trained. Those who comply will live to be sold in their early twenties. Surrounded by drones programmed to obey, a young woman challenges The Institute’s tolerance. There are no heroes here. Only survivors.

  • 𝐴𝑣𝑎𝑖𝑙𝑎𝑏𝑙𝑒 𝑂𝑛 𝐴𝑚𝑎𝑧𝑜𝑛! By author Wynta Tyme🖤
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07WHXSZYB/

My hunger for principal Tahj Seales was progressively growing stronger every day. However it was never in my nature to pursue any man so I would patiently wait until he made the first move. Daddy definitely made the first move and it was possessive like I loved my men. With me being twenty-five, and Tahj being forty-four, age didn’t bother either one of us. Honestly, I preferred my men older. There was just something about a well-dressed man of distinction. A man that commanded attention unknowingly.
That’s why dating him had its perks. As the school nurse at Reevers Elementary, I could see him every day and still not get enough of him. When I wanted a taste of his magic stick, it was delivered on a gold platter. However, all that glitters isn’t gold. My lustful feelings may belong to him, but my heart strings were being tugged by another. Another, that was much more intense, and possessive than my sweet Tahj. My knight of the night never showed his face but I always felt when he was lurking and playing with the shadows. Unbeknownst to me, a game of cat and mouse was about to become more deadly and dangerous than I could ever imagine. 
Temptation seemed to be lurking everywhere unintentionally. My fitted dress slacks and knee-length skirts were driving both of them insane. Trapped in unfamiliar surroundings, Tahj and I see each other in a new light as the spider queen weaves her way into everyone's lives. When secrets from the past, lust, and jealousy are mixed together, a tangled web is weaved and hopefully, Tahj and I can fight our way out.

  • Guess what is out an available now?! 📚📚📚
The Emperor’s Fist by Jay Allan
This is the 4th book in the Far Stars series. I’ve been told that this could be read as a stand-alone, so it’s a great way to give Allan a try?
📚📚📚
Brief Synopsis:  Set three years after the ending of Funeral Games (2017), a reluctant hero with a bloody past must reunite with an old love to battle an evil emperor willing to destroy their worlds. Arkarin Blackhawk and Astra Lucerne must join forces again to stop a petty smuggler that wants to abolish everything they’re been fighting for. However, this isn’t so simple for Ark. His heart belongs to Astra, but he’s trying to keep his distance. His imperial conditioning remains under control, but it is still volatile. He fears the look in Astra’s eyes when she sees what he truly was – and in some ways, what he remains. (Publisher’s blurb)
📚📚📚

  • What’s the last book that really tugged at your heart? 💞  Not gonna lie, I do have a soft spot for love stories (my black heart still bleeds red after all).. but those ones that beats all the odds .... gimme!  This one sounds like a true heart tugger. 💓

Thank you @tlcbooktours @katiawrites for this amazing copy. .

“Set in the final year of Soviet Russia’s collapse, this stunning debut novel tells the story of Sonya, a timid Jewish girl reuniting with her once-dissident mother and falling in love with a mysterious boy who may be an anti-Semite. All the while, Sonya’s mama is falling in love also⎯with shiny America, a land where differences seem to be celebrated. The place sounds amazing, but so far away. Will Sonya ever find her way there?”

  • È la prima volta che il mio nome pronunciato nomina
e che il nominare raccoglie in sé tutte le impressioni di Dio
e, con esse, la bellezza di una nuova virgola
la linfa della terra
i colori
il respiro
il congiuntivo dei giorni
e lo zenit dell’amore.

Aspetto che la pioggia mi racconti la mia storia.
