Just 99 cents today only. 

My second novel, Echoes in the Glass, rarely goes on sale--but today it's being featured on Bookli.com (thank you, Karli!), so off to sale it goes!

For today only, you can snag this story of sacrifice and betrayal on the Oregon Coast in present day and the 1930s. Snag it on Kindle, Nook, Kobo, or iTunes. 

Please share!

Thought I'd let y'all know:

Updated: I'll be hosting tonight's #YALitChat this evening on Twitter at 6 p.m. PST / 9 p.m. EST. Updated topic: Take charge of ur career! Do's, don'ts & cautionary tales from the world of publishing. #writers #amwriting #publishing

Along with audio book creation/marketing, we'll also be discussing do's and don'ts of the publishing world! Feel free to pepper me with questions or join in the conversation with information of your own. 
 
Easiest way to join in is via a third-party app that handles live Twitter chats well, such as TweetDeck.com, Hootsuite.com, tweetchat.com, or tchat.io (my favorite) http://www.tchat.io/

So if you are an author looking for tips for navigating the shark-infested literary waters, just search for the conversation using the hashtag #YALitChat and use that hashtag in all of your tweets. (The audiobook-centric topic is coming up soon. Will keep you posted).

I've never done a Twitter chat before. I'm intrigued by this. I kind of want to be a digital fly on the wall for this.

#Audible #Authors & Narrators: for the price of a coffee, you can promote your audio books & offer giveaway coupons via the AudaVoxx Newsletter. Learn more about this new service at AudaVoxx.com. 

Jump right into the sign up process here: http://www.audavoxx.com/promote-with-us/

And just for my Google+ friends, I'll offer each author or narrator one free ad spot for any newsletter from June 6, 2014 to end of the year. You'd just need to comment below in this post to get in on my Google+ #FREE ad promo. 


With nothing to lose and a potential new promotion method for your audio books, why not jump in and see what it's all about?

Authors such as Denise Grover Swank, Bob Mayer, Addison Moore and many more have offered up their audio books in the AudaVoxx Newsletter.

Thank you all for the invitation to join the group. I appreciate it. I've been a longtime author of historicals, but I'm trying my hand at scifi soon. gasp 

To kick off my participation in the group, I'm curious what you all think of a new concept for promoting audio books. Many of you have likely heard of BookBub, Pixel of Ink, etc., yes? 

Well, when I decided to put out audio book versions of my novels via ACX/Audible, I realized how few promotional avenues are available for authors/narrators of audio books. I was shocked actually. 

I wondered why no one had created an email newsletter service similar to BookBub. And then I decided I'd best do it myself. So I started AudaVoxx.com, which is simply an email newsletter split by audio book genres that comes out every Friday. 

What's in each issue:
Audio Book Ads 
Audio Book Coupon Giveaway Contests
E-Books Available via Whispersync
A Narrator Spotlight
General Product or Service Ad (iPhones, editing services, audio equipment, etc.)

What do you think of this idea? Do you think it would be useful to the publishing company at large, and more specifically authors looking for a new avenue to promote their audio books?

I was just reading about making an audio book last night.  I know one thing it would still need marketing.  I think the newsletter would be a great idea.  I am sure you would still need to market your newsletter.  Good luck to you.

Look what came in the mail! The paperback proof of my second novel, Echoes in the Glass. So, so happy with the cover and interior design. Will go live on Amazon worldwide in 3-5 days. Woot!
