Article about Amazon Books

The above article was pointed out to me, so I thought of sharing it. If you have books available for purchase through Amazon or you are considering publishing soon, this may be worth the read. If anything it may enlighten you to changes in how books get promoted and who is getting paid for your hard work. 

On a personal note, this is one of the reasons I abandoned most of my efforts to write for a living. It’s crazy out there for authors to make a buck. Though I’d love to be paid for my work, I have become content at the moment with just sharing my writing with those who like to read. On Amazon, you practically have to give books away to get readers anyway. Hopefully things will change in both the publishing world and my attitude about my place in it 😉

Get my first book for free!

There are a lot of new followers and readers to the blog here, and so I thought a little shameless promotion never hurt anyone. “Resurrection Diaries” is my first book. First published during the 2007 holiday season, it is a paranormal suspense thriller about a church custodian who comes to believe the place is haunted by the spirit of a teenage girl. As he delves into the mystery of who she might be and what happened, he finds his own life unraveling, as he gets closer to the truth. Part ghost story, part mystery, this tale is told in an easy to read diary format. And the best part about it right now is its free from Amazon.

You can get the digital edition free of charge. Just follow the link below and get your copy. I would greatly appreciate it if you would offer a review and rating after you’re done reading, or otherwise spread the word about this offer. Everyone loves free books, so here’s the perfect Halloween gift. Hopefully soon, it will also be available on the Apple Store and Barnes & Noble at the same price. So, stay tuned, and I’ll keep you posted.

Thanks so much for your support. Every thing you do, whether it’s following this blog or downloading my book, interacting with me on here, or part of my Facebook family, it’s all a blessing to me, and I love all the readers and writers I’ve met in the past couple months. You are an integral part of my writing life and I thank you.
