Need Your Vote: MUST LOVE BREECHES up for a RONE

SELF-e: Another way to get your indie book into libraries–a success story

As an indie author, I’m always looking for avenues to get my books into the hands of readers. At this stage, that’s more important to me than the revenue. So, when I first saw mention of LibraryJournal’s new curated collection for BiblioBoard back in September, I submitted Must Love Breeches, and then Steam Me Up, Rawley when […]

So, Apparently My Cover is Too Prurient for an Amazon Ad + Mini Rant

Behold, a book cover too salacious to get an ad on Amazon. I’m not kidding. Yesterday, Amazon opened up advertising to non-Beta testers whose books are enrolled in KDP Select. For various reasons, I’d decided a week ago to put Steam in KDP Select (for non-authors, this means I decided to make the ebook exclusive […]
