I won't belabor this post with a long intro, seeing as I've belabored this announcement already on YouTube and all over social media, LOL. Without any additional fanfare...dun dun dun...here it is: If this was love, love was some bullshit. In the era of blue eyeshadow, body glitter, and Axe, seventeen-year-old Sophia Salvatore starts her… Continue reading Cover Reveal: The Girls of Fall
This is some scary stuff, but very important for indie authors to be aware of. While most of my sales come from Amazon, I chose not to enroll in KU, mainly because I didn’t want to put all my eggs in one basket!
There’s this indie author I know a little bit from the Kboards.com forum. Her name is Pauline Creeden, and she’s an ordinary midlister, like so many of us. I remember PMing her some time ago and gushing about how particularly beautiful one of her book covers is — the one for Chronicles of Steele: Raven. Here, I’ll include an image. Gorgeous, eh?
Anyway, today I tuned in to Kboards and noticed that Pauline had started a thread. It contained what’s surely the worst news possible for an indie author: Amazon had closed her publishing account. All her ebooks had been taken off sale. Permanently. Here’s the email she got from Amazon:
We are reaching out to you because we have detected that borrows for your books are originating from systematically generated accounts. While we support the legitimate efforts of our publishers to promote their books, attempting to manipulate…

It's time for a new cover reveal! Weeeeeeee! Unfortunately, it's not the cover for Stones and Finger Bones book dos (sorry if anyone is terribly disappointed!) but it is set in the same universe and follows one of the minor characters on a brief adventure. Also -- and this is very exciting -- includes a… Continue reading Cover Reveal: Communion of the Damned
*peaks out from under rock* Oh, hai. Well, I’m not dead! Just been busy working, writing, worry about working, worrying about writing, struggling to make ends meet, making big life decisions – you know, all that adult-related nonsense we have to put up with. So I just stopped by to check in with y’all and… Continue reading A Very Merry Bookiversary!

This past Wednesday, we (me and my madre) threw a little shindig to celebrate the release of Stones. We danced, we kissed, we schmoozed, we carried on, we went home happy! Just kidding...unfortunately there was no dancing or kissing, but there was schmoozing and eating. And I went home pretty happy because my friends brought… Continue reading #bookpartytime
It's aliiiiivvvvvvvvveeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. Well, the digital version is anyway. Long story short, I am having technical difficulties with CreateSpace, who keeps rejecting my interior file. I was able to order one proof copy, found a pretty big formatting issue, and haven't been able to pass the updated file through the CS review system since. I've been… Continue reading EBOOK RELEASE DAY
I think the title of this post is pretty self-explanatory. I have nothing new for WIPpet Wednesday because I have written nothing new on any of my WIPs. Haha. I’m so productive. Anywho, in keeping with the spirit of one of my 2015 goals (be more bloggy) I figured I’d use this space for some… Continue reading WIPpet Wednesday: I’ve Got Nothin’
I’m not ready for today to be the last day of 2014; honestly, I don’t know how the year disappeared so fast. But, since tomorrow will begin a new year, I figured a little introspection was in order. I don’t normally like to make a big hubbub about New Year’s resolutions, mainly because I don’t… Continue reading Goal Setting (Or, Stuff Jessica Fails Miserably At)
As the release date for Stones creeps ever closer, I find myself growing ever more anxious. The cover is out in the world, with my name on it and guys…I’m kind of freaking out. I think I’ve officially entered the “What in the name of fluffy unicorns have I done?” phase of publishing. Has anyone… Continue reading On Writers and Reviews
