Every Wednesday ALLi will tell the world about our members' latest book launches, news, awards, freebies, workshops and updates on the writing life and take a look at the projects and businesses of our partner members.
My new book The Hunter is now available through Amazon's Kindle store. It went live Wednesday and I am so excited!It feels really good to get something out there at last.
Take a look, tell me what you think, the unique Identification Number is: B00FF5MPJY or you could use this link that'll take you direct to amazon.com:
It's only available as an e-book at the moment and will be followed by Censored – book two in the series, in the New Year.
On Monday Roz Morris was part of a Book Industry Communication (BIC) panel in London that discussed the place of ISBNs in a digital world. Other panellists included executives from the International ISBN agency, Ingram Content Group, the digital director of Hachette, the publishing counsel of Cambridge University Press and The Bookseller's head of events and marketing Sam Missingham. It was good to see indie authors being asked to contribute their views!
Alyssa Linn Palmer
Alyssa Linn Palmer has two new releases: The Artist's Muse, and Vee (Vol. 1).
The Artist's Muse: Broke and desperate after her girlfriend leaves her for a man, Colette finds a job as an artist’s model. When she arrives for an interview, she’s surprised to meet a striking young woman, Lise Beauclerc. Her relief at not having to pose for a man turns to infatuation as she observes Lise during their sessions, creating fantasies in her mind during the hours she poses.
Vee (Vol. 1): “Sylvia, my brightest star, my desire. My lust, my soul.”
“She was Lia to her co-workers at the bookstore, Sylvia to her mother, who clicked her tongue disapprovingly at her bright blue and hair and her Monroe stud. But to me, she was simply Vee.”
In Alex's notebooks, the story of Vee unfolds, from their first kiss, their first date, and the moments in between. It’s a May-December romance between a former punk girl gone conservative and a gamine young woman in combat boots and fishnets. They find each other on the streets of New York City and its love at first sight.
This is a short collection of stories, two of which have appeared in the Felt Tips and Anything She Wants erotic anthologies.
I thought I'd share that my free download is working out well on Amazon. The Dark Before Dawn (debut novel of the Gabriel McRay series) has hit #1 on Amazon's Best-Sellers Top 100 free.
It is currently at #1 Mystery Series and #1 Medical Thrillers.
It's also kicked the second book in the series, Deep into Dusk, to the best-seller list.
Something my fellow authors should definitely consider!
I am an indie author and have written, edited, formatted, e-cover, kindle, interior format and book cover design for paperback, and created/designed my own website to go with the novel Hope Arises by I.R.Tyler.
I am now embarking on a marketing strategy linked to the novel and its associated help lines. I believe the novel is original and has a current social and humanitarian appeal and I would like to gather any support I can in promoting the book through the alliance and possibly look to use translation and or TV/Film to take the story further.

My indie novel House of Silence won the People's Book Award for September in the Kindle category.
Star Gazing is one of the 3 adult books chosen for this year’s “Read for RNIB Day Reading Group Challenge”. All the books feature blind or partially sighted characters. (The 45-year old heroine of Star Gazing is congenitally blind.) I'm pleased and very proud that Star Gazing G has been chosen after a lengthy selection process.
The “Read for RNIB Day” campaign is about raising funds and awareness to make books fully accessible to all blind and partially sighted people. Currently, blind & partially sighted readers face a dramatically limited choice of book titles. Only 7% of books are available in large print, unabridged audio and braille, including titles available in these formats as eBooks.
If you are a member of The Alliance of Independent Authors and you would like to showcase your work on our ALLi Showcase, please send it to [email protected] to reach me no later than the Friday preceding the Wednesday you would like it published.
