Fear of a red bottom. And a three way with aliens.

While momentarily working on my lastest book (Court Jester of the Castle...it's taking a while but slowly getting there) I spared a thought for my other two books and decided a brief jaunt down affordable advertising road probably wouldn't go astray, now that I've finally gotten rid of a shed load of debt.

Finding your voice in a sea of ebooks

I feel that when you publish your first book online (once you've finished writing, editing, designing, formatting, proof reading, organising a cover for your ebook and finally re-read it enough times to be satisfied with your efforts) there should be a little pop up that appears once you hit the 'publish' button that reads:

Congratulations on your first book...now welcome to the grind.

Because in the three weeks since I found myself in that position, it's been a bit a big of a slog learning the ins and outs of ebook promotion. Still, I've stumbled across a few things so come see what I've found..
