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.
Flashbacks: a collection of short stories and anecdotes loosely based on a lifetime of odd experiences is now being printed and will be ready for Christmas.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Summer Triangle – One terrible moment changes everything…
Shona and Majid are living very different, but ordinary, lives on opposite sides of the globe, when both their worlds are shattered.
Majid, who witnesses the death of his fiancé, a bomb victim at an Irish/Saudi festival, is so distraught he runs from his problems – right into the arms of Islamic fundamentalists. Together his new allies and he plot to show Ireland exactly what they think of its cooperation in the US war against terror, but will Majid really get theclosure he so desperately craves?
Meanwhile Irish teen Shona falls pregnant following a drunken party and stumbles through early motherhood in a haze of alcohol. An overheard conversation about her past leaves her wallowing in the self-pity of betrayal and ripe for falling into the wrong hands.
When 08/08 threatens to become Dublin’s very own 9/11 will a chance meeting of the two teenagers hasten their road to self-destruction or help them rise from the ashes of the past?
Particularly when there are darker forces at work… It is available in paperback also from www.emu ink.ie
I have just opened enrollment in my Twitter For Authors course.
It is an independent study course that takes the beginner/intermediate Twitter user to a power user in four weeks of instruction. The course is delivered in a multimedia format with videos and PDF handouts. It was written specifically for authors and covers the basics like crafting the perfect author tweets and setting up systems to spend less time on Twitter.
It also covers advanced search techniques to find targeted readers, how to shadow another author on Twitter to grow your own targeted audience, and brand monitoring so you can track who is buying your books and tweeting about them. The course is available on my website and contains all of the tips and techniques I've used to build a targeted reader based audience that has helped me sell over 50,000 books.
The covers for the Go Creative! series have just been finalised and sent over by wonderful Jane of JD Smith design.
Take a look and see what you think.
I’ll be beginning to release the books in ebook format shortly and will do a launch in January.
If you want to be the first to know when each book is ready, you can sign up here on New Book Out to get an email when they arrive.
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.
