Greetings from Seattle…
Today marks a special day in self-publishing: It’s my one-year “author-versary”! That’s right, true believers, it was one year ago today that I took the fateful plunge to become a self-published author. My first release was “Come to the Cemetery,” a unique spin on the classic ghost story that became a #1 international bestseller and my most reprinted story.
What one-year in self-publishing looks like for me:
It’s hard to believe it’s been one year since I began self-publishing, two years since I first pitched agents and editors, and four years since I began writing my first novel. In the past twelve months, I’ve released 20 books, fifteen of which have become #1 bestsellers. My books have received over 10,000 downloads and over 100 five-star reviews on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Goodreads.
What will 2016 bring? More new books, that’s for sure, and I’m glad I get to share them with you!
As for what’s going on right now, I’ve got great news: Be the Magic and How to Start Your Novel have become my fourteenth and fifteenth #1 bestsellers! To celebrate my first year as a self-published author, I’m offering them to you FREE TODAY! Now’s your chance to see why they’re climbing the charts on Amazon. But hurry, they won’t stay free long!
If you’ve ever dreamed of writing a novel but never got past how to begin, How to Start Your Novel reveals the secret formula bestselling authors use to start their books. It’s a fun read full of fascinating tips and tricks to turn you into a lean, mean storytelling machine! Armed with this, you’ll be well on your way to becoming a #1 bestselling author just like me! And that’s important. I love giving back to the writer community by creating the books I wish I’d had when I was starting out. This is my sixth author advice book and my most ambitious to date. I’m confident it will help you, no matter if you’re writing a novel, novella, memoir, or short story. It’s got everything you need!
Be the Magic: Poems to Ignite and Inspire Creativity is a powerful poetry chapbook filled with inspiring words to motivate you to be more creative now. It’s all about passion and energy and making a positive change in your life and the lives of others. This is a departure from my usual “bold visions of dark places,” but one I think you’ll really enjoy. We all need encouragement to follow our dreams, and this book does that.
Enjoy your FREE eBooks! If you wouldn’t mind, I’d really appreciate it if you left an honest Amazon review of one or both of my new books. If you love them, please tell the world why in a few brief sentences. Thank you so much!
