    Earlier in the month Kobo teased us with some “big news” that we thought could have meant that Kobo was getting set to release a new ebook reader or two, but that just turned out to be a letdown when the big news ended up being the return of Oprah’s book club. But that doesn’t […]
  • March 2015 Kindle book releases

    I Love My Kindle

    24 Feb 2015 | 7:19 am
    March 2015 Kindle book releases While I don’t generally pre-order Kindle store books myself, I know many of you do. I understand the fun of just having the book show up, but I figure I’ll order when I want it…since I could have it within a minute, usually.… However, it’s worth noting that pre-ordering at a low price will tend to preserve that price. Back when the Agency Model was solidly in place, Amazon couldn’t guarantee that books sold by the publishers using that structure wouldn’t go up in price after you pre-ordered them. It wasn’t likely, it was just…

    A Newbie's Guide to Publishing

    I was invited into the Kindle Worlds program when it got started.Kindle Worlds allows others to write in the world another author has created.For example, if you love the John Rain books by Barry Eisler, or the Wayward Pines series by Blake Crouch, or Hugh Howey's Silo Saga, you can write a story using their worlds and characters, publish it, and actually split the money it earns with that author.I think this is a killer idea, and it is akin to one I has years ago called the Active Ebook. My intent was for authors to allow other writers to use their characters--what has been known as fan…

    Often times it seems as if those who work in the legacy publishing world are so out of touch with authors that a translator is needed to explain the true meaning of what has been said.Such is the case with John Sargent, CEO of Macmillan, in his recent public letter.Sargent in crazy bold italics, the translation in common-sense normal font.Dear Authors, Illustrators, and Agents,There has been a lot of change in the e-book publishing world of late, so I thought it a good idea to update you on what is going on at Macmillan. Translation: It will be easier to accept the bad news if I warn you…

There's loads of sex. Heaps of sex. Kinky sex.But this is the first time I've ever attempted to actually make sex essential to the arcs of the two main characters. Where 'girl meets boy' is the point of the plot.Ann is an expert when it…

  • New Life For Old Books (Mine!)

    24 Feb 2015 | 11:06 am
    Posted by Victoria StraussOne of the greatest things about the digital revolution is the opportunities it has created to give new life to old books. Years ago, books rarely came back into circulation once they were taken off the market--but the proliferation of digital self-publishing options, as well as the rise of digital publishers specializing in reprints, has changed all that. I've written nine novels, but until recently, only four were "in print" and available. Today, I'm thrilled to announce that four of my backlist books are being re-released as ebooks by Open Road Media. This brings…
  • Editing Clauses in Publishing Contracts: How to Protect Yourself

    12 Feb 2015 | 9:16 am
    Posted by Victoria Strauss for Writer BewareEditing clauses are one of those publishing contract areas where there should be a balance between the publisher's interests and the writer's.Publishers need a certain amount of latitude to edit a manuscript to prepare it for publication. They also need to have the right of final approval--they don't want to be forced to publish a manuscript that the author can't or won't revise to their satisfaction.Writers, on the other hand, need assurance that they will be a partner in the editing process, and that their work won't be changed in major ways…

  • REVIEW: Locked in Stone by Tory Michaels

    Dear Ms. Michaels, When I saw that your latest book was about gargoyles, I was intrigued. That sub-genre of paranormal romance normally doesn’t see a whole lot of love – no pun intended. And I certainly can’t recall very many where the female is the gargoyle in question. I must say, however, I was quite pleasantly surprised by this, the inaugural book in your new Hearts of Stone series. Gargoyle and Sacred Mother, Rose Johnson, is a young woman of limited means who has spent her entire life looking over her shoulder. Recently, she found her guardian decapitated – moments before a…

    What is net neutrality? On Thursday, the internet world was caught up in llamas and debating the color of dresses but it will be remembered years later as the day the FCC voted, 3-2, to reclassify internet access services as a public utility under Title II of the Communications Act.  Net neutrality is the concept that all internet service is treated equally. The term originated with Columbia Law professor Tim Wu. Companies that provide internet access like the telephone and cable companies wanted to be able to create separate tiers of access. A public utility is like water service, heating…

    Dear Ms. Aicher: I saw people talking about this on Twitter and I love a good sports romance. The unique thing about this hockey book is that it features a female hockey player and a male one. Samantha Yates was a star of the US women’s hockey team that won silver in the Olympics. When she faced graduation and the end of her collegiate hockey career, she decides to put it all aside to pursue a graduate degree in sports psychology in Northern California–far away from her collegiate home at the University of Minnesota. Initially I asked myself why Sam wouldn’t try the…

    catherineryanhoward

    As you may know, I’ve been rewriting my novel. I started on the 11th January and I finished the main* part of the book at 1:17am this morning, after a thirteen hour writing stint that surely put me at risk for curvature of the spine, RSI and deep vein thrombosis. This isn’t because my agent is some kind of task-master, but because this gap – from the first day I returned to university after Christmas and had handed in my Michaelmas term essays, to this coming Friday when my next two essays are assigned – was the only time I had. If the rewrite ran over, it would clash…

Ever since I started university back in September – and realized, belatedly, that I don’t really have time to go to university full-time and do all the stuff I normally do – I feel like I’ve been saying that a lot, to the point where even I’m completely sick of it. The word has lost all its meaning. But I am very… Well, let’s just say time-challenged.  At the moment, before I get more essay assignments (didn’t we just have those?

    Technically, if you’re writing fiction, there’s no rule that says everything has to be factually accurate, however you may want to be careful not to exaggerate too much. Especially if you set your story in a real place. For instance if you’re setting your book in Chicago, and you start making up streets, it’s not […]

Via: http://the-digital-reader.com/2015/0...comment-801403 Quote: Barnes & Noble announced today that they were splitting the 700 plus college stores operated by B&N into its own wholly owned company called B&N Education. For the past 3 years Barnes & Noble's college store division has been bundled into its digital division, Nook Media. As Nook Media's fortunes waned, its been clear that B&N was going to have to split off the still financially healthy college stores from the toxic digital unit.

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...es/description Can't find any technical info on the screen, other than having a 64-colour display and can be back lit. Refresh rate looks pretty fast as well. I'm excited because I've been looking to replace my old watch but don't feel the old Pebble and current smart watches cut it. Also excited this might be the the product that might thrust colour e-paper out from whatever dark hole it's currently in.

  • Guideline update: Firmware links

    Alexander Turcic
    20 Feb 2015 | 2:02 am
    Occasionally users may post download links that don't point to the official vendor website. The firmware could be unofficial or custom-made. For example, if you are familiar with Android, you probably heard of the CyanogenMod distribution, which is a popular community firmware based on Google Android along with plentiful gee-whiz custom code. One issue with unofficial firmware is that it may contain proprietary software not licensed for free distribution. Another issue is that installing such a firmware would likely void the warranty of your device. Our take on this onwards is that you can…

    Snapshot: March 1 2015 I generally run this information through eReaderIQ.com (it’s just easier than Amazon), and there are some vagaries in the searches (both there and on Amazon). I do try to run it the same way every time, so unless Amazon changes something, it should give you a pretty good idea.  NOTE: I’ve changed this explanation from saying “Jungle-Search.com” to “eReaderIQ.com”. It’s the same people and I assume the results are the same. eReaderIQ is just for the Kindle, Jungle-Search does Amazon generally. eReaderIQ has a slightly better…

    Bufo Calvin

    Why Power/Rangers matters to readers I like parodies. I even have a category for parodies I write on this blog. I’ve done Alice in Wonderland, Sherlock Holmes (I think that may have come out the best), Star Trek, Leave it to Beaver, and more. There is a significant difference between the first two above and the last two. The first two are public domain works (well, most of the original Arthur Conan Doyle Sherlock Holmes, for sure…that’s a bit complicated), and the latter two are still under copyright protection in the USA. The United States Copyright Office specifically…

    First Kindle Scout books now available for pre-order I’ve written before about Kindle Scout, Amazon’s innovative “crowd advised” publishing program. Essentially, authors submit a completed but unpublished book to the program. Readers can read a sample…and decide if they should endorse the book for  publication. If Amazon chooses to traditionally publish the book (advised but not bound by the readers’ choices), it’s a regular sort of publishing contract. Part of a publisher’s responsibility (actually, a very big part) is to promote and market…

    March 2015 Kindle book releases While I don’t generally pre-order Kindle store books myself, I know many of you do. I understand the fun of just having the book show up, but I figure I’ll order when I want it…since I could have it within a minute, usually.… However, it’s worth noting that pre-ordering at a low price will tend to preserve that price. Back when the Agency Model was solidly in place, Amazon couldn’t guarantee that books sold by the publishers using that structure wouldn’t go up in price after you pre-ordered them. It wasn’t likely, it was just…

There are several ways to put together a book bundle or book set and I will share these strategies in this post. Before I get into the logistics behind publishing a book bundle, here are two types of book bundles you can publish.

    Rebecca Livermore As an indie author, you have a lot of decisions to make. One of the biggest decisions is whether to sell your eBook on Amazon, on your own website, or both. Amazon, of course, is a top choice for most authors, but just because everyone else is doing it, doesn’t mean this is what’s best for you. There’s not a one-size-fits-all answer to this question, but reading through these pros and cons of both of the options will help you determine what’s best for you.

    by Justine Schofield Building your readership is the key to success in the current book market. Readers don’t just flock to books without the author putting in the time and effort to connect and engage with them. As an author, you have to establish yourself within the writing world and appeal to your audience. Just like writing, building your audience is an ongoing process that should ideally begin before you publish your first book. If you’ve already published and don’t yet have a loyal readership, don’t worry! It’s never too late to start and there are a lot of fun ways you can…
  • 33 Revenue Streams For Authors – Even If You Write Non-Fiction

    Joan Stewart
    13 Feb 2015 | 6:05 am
    by Joan Stewart Most authors obsess over one statistic: the number of books sold. They don’t see their books as springboards to other opportunities. Sure, selling a truckload is exhilarating. But for the really smart, savvy authors, only one number really counts: how many revenue streams they can create from a book. Authors who haven’t published yet can start creating spin-off products from a book that isn’t finished. Simply tie the products into the topic of your book. Here are 33 ideas to get you thinking about multiple revenue streams. For Beginning Authors 1) Special Reports These…

  • Reviewing Girl in a Band by Kim Gordon

    Kim Gordon, vocalist, bassist and founding member of the critically acclaimed band Sonic Youth is the coolest woman alive. Possibly to ever exist. And she proves this in her new memoir Girl in a Band. Okay, I suppose this may just be my opinion but it would be impossible to exaggerate the enormous impact she has had on the modern music scene and the Riot Grrl movement.   Gordon has always been known for her aloofness and reservation when it came to publicity and the spotlight of fame. I was honestly very surprised when I first heard she was penning a memoir so I wasn’t sure what to…

    You have probably heard the old adage, “write what you know”.  That is great advice for any aspiring author. However, I think too many writers believe those words only apply to factual knowledge when they should actually serve as encouragement to draw on all your sensual experiences for writing. In other words, don’t neglect your remembrance of smells and touch and emotions and particular sounds and dialect. As a writer, you have a vast resource of experiences to draw from to make your writing as good as it can be. Here are three ways you can tap experiences from your…

    Edgar Allan Poe: The Fever Called Living by Paul Collins Genre: Biographies & Memoirs Looming large in the popular imagination as a serious poet and lively drunk who died in penury, Edgar Allan Poe was also the most celebrated and notorious writer of his day. He died broke and alone at the age of forty, but not before he had written some of the greatest works in the English language, from the chilling “The Tell-Tale Heart” to “The Murders in the Rue Morgue” – the first modern detective story – to the iconic poem “The Raven.” Poe’s life was one of unremitting…

  • Barnes & Noble Spins off College Division

    Rich Bellis
    27 Feb 2015 | 5:00 am
    The bookseller announced yesterday it will separate its retail and ebook businesses from its college books business, with plans to set the latter up as a standalone education company by the end of August. That raises the question of whether Barnes & Noble’s plans for Nook Media have changed. While the company has said it intends to find a buyer later this year, Publishers Lunch reports that “some investors interpret [yesterday’s news] as meaning Nook is no longer fit for sale.” As for an independent Barnes & Noble Education, CEO Michael Huseby foresees it becoming “an…
  • How Authors Can Build Content Communities

    Hal Robinson
    27 Feb 2015 | 4:30 am
    Digital technology is changing the way we read, but it’s also changing the way we write. How can authors take advantage of this? A friend of mine who writes crime fiction is interested in how this might happen. She is a bit worried about it, too. I told her how impressed I am by the depth and detail of the research she’s done for her novels, and I wondered whether her readers like to get a glimpse of this, too—a bit like the behind-the-scenes footage and outtakes filmmakers add as bonus material to DVDs. “What happens to all that research?” I asked. “Oh, I don’t throw it…

  • When Discoverability Arrives Too Late

    Rich Bellis
    26 Feb 2015 | 5:00 am
    ‘Discovery’ and ‘discoverability’ are the twin watchwords of book marketing today, and for good reason. In an intensely competitive market, ensuring the right mechanisms are in place to allow readers to find what they’re after—and to recommend something similar to what they’re after—is critically important. But those efforts may still fall short in some ways. In one publisher’s view, “discoverability relies on someone actively trying to discover something, which comes only at the end stage of the buying process.” Instead, publishers “need to catch people much…

    Discoverability, SEO, keywords, rich metadata—get these things correct and success is yours, right? Wrong, I’m sorry to say. Discoverability isn’t nearly enough. Discoverability relies on someone actively trying to discover something, which comes only at the end stage of the buying process. You need to catch people much earlier—long before they even know they want what you’re selling. Enter “inbound marketing.” Google it and you’ll be amazed that you’ve never heard of it in publishing circles (though if you have, drop a note in the comments section and…

    The Director of one of the largest bookstores in the Netherlands has claimed e-readers are dead. Fred Zeegers of Bruna Bookstore made the comments via an an interview with Boekblad when he talked about the launch of their new unlimited e-book subscription service.  Bruna Bookstore has recognized that selling e-books individually is passe.

  • Microsoft Delivers Numpad to Android Tablets for Excel

    Jillian Koskie
    28 Feb 2015 | 10:01 pm
    If you want to get in to a heated debate with a true nerd, ask them if they feel numpad is a true necessity for a keyboard (and let me advise you ahead of time to avoid the arrow keys argument entirely). Honestly though, if you do a lot of work with spreadsheets that numpad comes in pretty handy. Microsoft agrees, and so if you happen to have an Android tablet, there is a keyboard now that lets you enter numbers with speed, ease, and precision (unfortunately smartphones are still out of luck, no matter how many numbers you plan to crunch on the smaller-format devices). As handy as it is, the…

    There are three major companies that market newspapers and magazines to libraries and there is a fair amount of concern about what ecosystem to invest in. Library budgets are finite and the average system can ill-afford in making the wrong choice when investing in digital content for their patrons. Today, we look at the three best ones out there and give you a sense on what they are all about. All of the companies involved in magazines and newspapers in the library have their own apps. This is necessary to read the digital content and normally the branches will have detailed instructions on…

    Microsoft is terribly fond of looking forward, almost too much so –to the point that they forget about the present. In their latest video featuring their vision of the future (linked below, if you are interested in watching it for yourself), Microsoft tries to prove something… that feels a little bit like ‘hey look, we’ll still be around’! For the most part, the devices shown in the video are not entirely different from what we are using today (with a few exceptions). I am most fond of the bendable displays, with a tablet shown that looks very much like a book or…

It is a literary device of a narrative history all chronologically earlier than the narrative of primary interest.” What does that mean to you the writer?

When stereotypes and clichés are used, authors simply have to define a character as a dumb jock or a nerdy bookworm, and they can get away without having to establish characterization because the stereotype has done all the work for them.

    PG was unaware of the BBC Radio 4 Book Club until he received a tip from Brendan. Two hundred Bookclubs, and yet it feels like only yesterday that we began. The reason, I think, is that every programme feels different. Each author is an original voice, and each group of readers has a different character. You never know quite what to expect. I’ve been privileged to chair all these programmes, and I’ve been conscious through the years that the idea of the programme – which came from the first producer, Olivia Seligman, in 1998 – was truly in tune with our times. Think of the growth in…

But it so happens that I recently spent the better part of a year doing something very similar to Ms Bradford’s challenge.

    Michelle Griep has single-handedly renewed my love for Regency Romance. A Heart Deceived is no bodice ripper, something I tired of long ago. It's an intriguing tale of a young, unmarried woman who must keep her brother's growing insanity a secret--or he'd end up in an asylum, and she'd end up homeless.Michelle's  characters are as real and complex as her plot. She included a couple of men in there who I still want to smack upside the head. But her true gift as an author is in her ability to sink the reader in the setting. Of course, nothing enhances the ability to…

    I was recently reminded about why it was so important to tell my story. We all have stories, all of us have unique experiences that shape who we are. Some of them are positive, wonderful and funny. Some of them are negative. They involve mistreatment and abuse and sadness. I don’t believe in telling your story as a way to define yourself. As a way to remain a victim. I believe in speaking the truth in order to put the ugliness behind you.Very often, when you tell your story there are others who believe a different story about you. Others who should or do know better, but they cling to the…

  • Character Talents and Skills: Regeneration

    Angela Ackerman
    28 Feb 2015 | 2:15 am
    As writers, we want to make our characters as unique and interesting as possible. One way to do this is to give your character a special skill or talent that sets him apart from other people. This might be something small, like having a green thumb or being good with animals, to a larger and more competitive talent like stock car racing or being an award-winning film producer.  When choosing a talent or skill, think about the personality of your character, his range of experiences and who his role models might have been. Some talents might be genetically imparted while others are created…
  • A Book Marketing Truth Few Experts Will Admit

    Angela Ackerman
    25 Feb 2015 | 2:15 am
    Book marketing is tough, especially when it comes to self-publishing. The good news is there is no shortage of experts, books and websites out there to advise authors on how to market. The bad news is that while some offer content brimming with strong, helpful advice, others impart ‘wisdom’ that belongs in a primer on what NOT to do. It takes time and the willingness to work hard to sort good ideas from bad and come up with a plan that is best for you. But here’s a cold, unpopular truth about book marketing: you can do everything experts say to do, and still feel you are not…

    Courtesy: Dana Lookadoo @ Creative Commons Well, it’s time for another round of critiques, but I’ve decided to do things a little differently this month. I know that the writing journey is hard and long. We’ve all heard the stories about writers who submitted their stories over and over again, piling up insane rejection amounts before hitting the big time. Authors like… Kathryn Stockett, whose book “The Help” was rejected 60 times. Louie L’Amour, rejected 200 times before he hit the jackpot. Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hanson, who racked up…

  • How to Write Vivid Character Descriptions: Be Invisible!

    Angela Ackerman
    17 Feb 2015 | 2:19 am
    One of the most difficult areas of description is when it comes to showing the appearance of a protagonist, especially when writing in first person POV. We need readers to “see” our protagonist, but how do we deliver description that feels natural and active? Luckily my friend Nola Sarina, Author Extraordinaire, is here with terrific advice on using Voice & Being Invisible to convey details not only about the main character, but the rest of a story’s cast. Please read on! Most authors have encountered the advice: “Avoid the dreaded mirror scene!” Why? Because using a…

    Joanna Penn
    25 Feb 2015 | 10:10 pm
    Many authors want to get their self-published books into physical bookstores and libraries as well as being allowed into literary organizations. In today’s interview, I talk to Debbie Young about how this can be done.

    I hate writing. It’s so hard to force myself to sit and type words that are a load of crap anyway. I love writing. Some days I can get into a flow state and the words come effortlessly onto the page, and they’re actually pretty good! I love creating something from just my brain. It’s the best life in the world. My mind is completely empty. I will never have another idea. Trust emergence. Something will come out of the milieu of this crazy, buzzing world.

    As you move from just being an author to running a business as an author, you will need to find people to work with you and take things off your shoulders. You’re a writer, so you need to offload some of the other tasks, even if you can do it all yourself. I know how hard this outsourcing is, but also how critical it is if you don’t want to burn out. Today, I talk to Chris Ducker about the concept of Virtual Freedom. In the introduction I give an update on my own writing and speaking events, as well as talking about Mark Coker’s post on ebooks as annuity and the podcast I…

    LOVE CAN SHINE A LIGHT   Not long ago I caught the end of a conversation in a grocery store parking lot.  In a very animated voice, the woman was saying, “…but you just can’t do that to someone who depends on others to do the right thing by them.”  My imagination flew into action as the group—two ladies and two gentlemen—got into a van and drove away.  The sign painted on the side door read: HELP For Disabled Children Is Here.  I wondered. Do you remember Mother Teresa?  She passed from this earth in 1997.  However, while on the planet she taught us a lot about LOVE. …

    Book reviews are a great way for self-publishing authors to gain exposure. After all, how can someone buy your book if he or she doesn’t know it exists? Paired with other elements of your book promotion strategy, requesting reviews is a great way to get people talking about what you’ve written. When we read good reviews, we definitely like to share them. It gives the author a few (permanent) moments of fame and allows us to let the community know about a great book. Here’s this week’s book review by Midwest Book Review:  Elevate Your Life Juna Jinsei Publisher: Outskirts Press…

    Last week, I launched a series of questions addressing the nature and role of diversity in publishing, specifically within the self-publishing industry.  Before I return to those questions, a quick proviso: there’s been a lot of mud-slinging on both (or all?) sides of this debate, which can be both wild and wonderful (and occasionally, deeply problematic for all of us involved in getting words out of our heads and dispersed into the world).  But we’re not here to sling mud at anyone.  We’re here to ask questions and, hopefully, to listen. Some of the mud-slinging can be…

    Many of the questions I hear most often, working as I do in the self-publishing business, can be distilled down to one very simple one: “What makes for a great self-publishing experience?”  The answer is equally simple: “A high-quality self-publishing company.” First, we have to consider the business side of things.  A self-publishing company is, in the end, a company––and a company works according to profit.  As end users, either clients or readers, we want to know that we are receiving the best possible product and service for our investment.  You definitely…

    Karen Dionne
    6 Feb 2015 | 6:59 am
    Not all literary agents are created equal. Agent Kristin Nelson and author Karen Dionne have seen the good, the bad, and the truly ugly. In this article series, “Think Like an Agent,” they pool their expertise. Kristin: Simply put, a literary agent is the person an author hires to manage his or her publishing career. Literary agent is actually an odd career. It’s the only job in which the the agent picks the client first, and then the client decides whether or not to hire the agent. What other job is remotely like that? None. It’s unique to this industry. Regardless, once an agent…

    For years, I’ve been friends with the Backspace Co-Founder Extraordinaire Karen Dionne. Over the break, she reached out to me to see if I was open to doing the 2016 Salt Cay Writers Retreat in the Caribbean. Like I need to think about that. Conference in a warm, tropical setting? Oh, heck yeah, I’m in. But as we were chatting, we started talking about how writers sometimes want an agent so badly, they are willing to sign with an average or even a below-average agent. Trust me, not all agents are equal. And I said, “Well, writers don’t know what they don’t know.” In that moment,…
  • Do writers have to “write what they know?” by Suzanne Chazin

    Karen Dionne
    4 Nov 2014 | 2:18 pm
    Writers are often advised to “write what you know.” The thinking goes that only by experiencing something yourself can you portray it authentically. Here’s what I know: 1. A child’s need for a bathroom is inversely proportional to the distance from one. 2. If you want to discuss something really important with a man, hide the remote. 3. Never enter a swimming pool after a bunch of preschoolers have used it. The same goes for teenagers and your car. If I had to write solely from personal experience, my novels would have all the excitement of a C-span budget hearing. I’m no Hemingway.

    Dreams are amazing, ephemeral and fun. As a psychologist, I enjoy listening to my clients’ dreams and I’m grateful to have a window into their world. Their dreams teach me so much about their unconscious fears and desires, their most hidden emotions. When I read about the popularity of dream clubs in the northeast, I thought it would be a great idea for a mystery series and I wrote Nightmares Can be Murder, the first in the Dream Club Mysteries (Penguin, Sept 2,2014). A dream club is like a book club except the topic is dreams.  In Nightmares Can Be Murder, business consultant Taylor…
  • Breaking In: Voice by Karen Dionne

    16 Sep 2014 | 9:14 am
    All agents and editors look for different things in a manuscript. For authors hoping to sell their novel to a major publisher, this variety of tastes and opinions works in their favor: one man’s trash is another woman’s treasure. But one item comes up over and over again: Voice. The reason is simple. Readers are going to have to live with that narrative voice for two or three hundred pages, so the author’s voice needs to be as captivating and compelling as possible. Voice is difficult to define in the abstract, but agents, editors, readers, and writers know voice when they…

But to me, discipleship is more like a struggle, a wrestling match with God. And during Lent, as we wrestle with sin vs. redemption, I think of Jacob—the ultimate wrestler with God. In Genesis 32, Jacob gets ready to meet his older brother Esau—who he…

Other times the meaning to clear and obvious. In either case, once discovered, the effect on the reader can be quite profound.

    The post After Midnight by Diane Shute – Historical Intrigue appeared first on A Million Kindle Books. After Midnight is such a common name for a book. And many of these are romances. But this one was called Gothic by some reviewers and that led me to pick it up to read. I am a big fan of Victoria Holt, and I thought maybe this book will be something like her books.

    Corporate training programs have been implemented by most companies as a matter of investment. But, with technology advancing at such a rapid rate, it is not enough if you just leave all the training sessions in to just classroom training. It may not fulfil all the goals completely.

  • "Doctor, I'm Sick," or Medical Practice in Eighteenth Century America By Shirley Martin

    1 Mar 2015 | 3:30 am
          Believe me, you wouldn't want to be sick in eighteenth century America.    In my time travel romance, "Dream Weaver," the hero--Christian--is a doctor in 1762. In preparation for writing this romance, I read as much as possible about medicine in the eighteenth century.    Let's start with a few basics. The average life span was thirty-five years, the death rate appalling. Very few people lived to the advanced age where cancer or heart disease manifested themselves. Only a very high birth rate allowed America to grow.
  • The Power of Emotion by Connie Vines

    28 Feb 2015 | 3:00 am
    In my opinion, all successful/popular novels, no matter what genre, have one key element: emotion.  Emotion lies at the core of every character’s decision, action, reaction, and motivation.  All of which drive the story. A character’s personal journey does not exist without emotion—it would be pointless. The plot would be made up meaningless events that a reader would not invest any time to read.  Why?  Because above all else, the readers choose a novel to have an emotional experience.  Be it a wild roller coaster ride of pure terror in a horror novel; reliving…
  • Constantinople, the Gate to the Orient - by Vijaya Schartz

    While researching Constantinople for my novel Beloved Crusader, Book 6 in the Curse of the Lost Isle series, I came upon some fascinating details, and decided to write for this blog a description of the ancient city as it must have appeared to the First Crusaders, when they reached the famed city in late December of 1096 AD. Enjoy.From the vantage point of a hill, one could see over the ramparts in the distance, the seven hills, the imperial mound with its white palace, and the cupolas of the Hagia Sophia basilica. Constantinople, the jewel of the orient, shone like ivory and gold in its…
  • The road to publication-Tricia McGill

    26 Feb 2015 | 3:30 am
    Ah, what a rocky road it is. There aren’t many writers who can tell you their first completed manuscript was picked up by an editor at the first attempt. I fear that if they do tell you this they might be telling fibs.Each writer’s personal journey is different in so many ways from their fellow authors. In each journey there are many hurdles to jump and lessons to learn along the way to publication.The hardest to take at the start are those pesky rejection letters. But then we learn that each one is really just another stepping stone and when all is said and done they just reinforce our…
