The best-laid schemes of mice and men

Murphy’s Law has struck again! Ashes Remain was meant to be released on the 28th, but instead, the paperback was released today, two days earlier than planned. When publishing with KDP, it can take up to 72 hours of review time before your book is up and out for purchase. With my previous books, it has taken the full 72 hours, so I assumed that would be this case with Ashes Remain.

Book Marketing and Social Media

Book marketing is by far the hardest part of the book process. I’ve struggled with it since the moment my first book was done. A lot of my issue is finding an audience. If I want to be more successful, I need to find a way of getting my books out in front of more people. I need to find my readers, I need to interact with them. Enter social media – and all the woes that come with it. When I was a young teenager, it was easy to navigate social media. First of all, there was only one … Continue reading Book Marketing and Social Media
