While I was pimping for authors to join this year's Trick-or-Treat Reads, I had someone ask me what sort of results authors could expect. I hadn't written down numbers of previous events, but knew I had hit #1 on a few freebie lists with Snapshots one year.
Has everyone got their book bags ready? All day today, authors are handing their books out like candy. Dressing up is optional (pants are too) but if anyone wants, grab some books from your bookshelf, put on a costume, and tweet me the picture. This is supposed to be fun, after all.
IWSG is posted the first Wednesday of every month, but I'm posting early this month. Explanation is below with my writing goals. It is the brain child of Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh. Get your fears and insecurities out or give words of encouragement. We're writers, let's support each other!
The awesome co-hosts for the September 7 posting of the IWSG will be C. Lee McKenzie, Rachel Pattison, Elizabeth Seckman, Stephanie Faris, Lori L MacLaughlin, and Elsie Amata!
If you've read the second book in Path of Angels, you'll get the blog title. If you haven't, sad face! Kidding. What it is, is Zephyr calls Zade and his brother bird boys.
Uriel is the last angel name that I never got around to talking about the meaning of his name. I held off since he doesn't come into the series until Jophiel. Plus, I didn't want to give spoilers by talking about him too much. Although, not sure why I was that worried. All I have to do is not say his role in the series.
This was a post I wrote back during Path of Angels releases, but I never found a good moment to squeeze it in. I decided since one of my 2016 goals was to market my books throughout the year, today is as good as any to finally publish this post.
Metatron–Angel of Thought
His name literally means "the throne beside the throne of God." He is considered one of the most important archangels who led the children out of Israel and also stopped Abraham from sacrificing his son, Isaac.
I really don't do enough shameless promotion on this blog. Mostly, I like to talk about other things regarding writing and my life. People don't like constantly being hawked to as it is, so I'd rather just be myself. A slick salesman I am not.
But it's Cyber Monday and I thought I'd get in on it with some book deals I hope you can't resist.
If you recall last year I did a little thing called #PonyFest where I turned Tommy and Cyc into My Little Ponies. Tommy had no idea what the point was (big surprise) and Cyc just endured it.
THEY MADE SUCH CUTE PONIES!
This year, Rebecca Enzor is doing it again. SQUEE! I have a NA series with a bunch of characters I can use, so I thought to myself, Who will by my victim?
The answer was pretty obvious.
It's Halloween over in the UK and other parts of the world, so I'm hitting publish on this now. In a few hours, Michael's US Amazon page will update to free, so while you're waiting, grab my other books at Smashwords. I'll also be keeping the linky updated with everyone's link to their post so you don't have to navigate their blog (although, a few listing go directly to the Amazon page because they were last minute and I said it was okay.)
In my previous posts I talked about what I learned and tricks, but I also said I couldn't really tell if the TC campaign got me any sales because I had other release day events going on as well. Since Path of Angels sales and borrows were fading, I decided to put Michael up for free for a day. The only promotion I did for it was a TC campaign and a couple of tweets.
Now, let me first say that I was experimenting with a free book. People always click free over something they have to lay down money for. If I had done a TC for Michael at 99cents, I think my numbers would have been lower. Maybe one day I'll do it and report on it. I'm really enjoying doing these posts.
