Beauty of Fear-Trailer

The results are in!

So, after 3 days of offering Beauty of Fear for free on Kindle, the results are in!  

  • Over 1300 downloads overall
  • Made it to #13 on kindle free downloads under suspense
  • Passed a Tess Gerritsen, Rizzoli and Isles short in the suspense category
  • And darn it was able to make it available to everyone!
What else?

Website has been revamped!  Thanks to Endee Creative and my wonderful niece Danielle Torres.  We would both love to have some feedback regarding the changes.

Also thanks to her, I was able to complete my book trailer.  I found the music and provided the words and feel.  She found the pictures to make it work, bringing life to my words.  The feedback I've gotten for the trailer?  Creepy

Self publishing is a double edged sword.  It can be as easy or hard as you want it to be.  I chose to self publish through Amazon and Kindle Direct Publishing.  The paperback is courtesy of Createspace.  All in all it has been and continues to be a wonderful experience.  Drawbacks?  Self promoting.  Shameless, self promoting…it can take a lot out of you.

Social media really is the key.  There are so many sites and groups out there that can help the aspiring writer, one would be foolish not to take advantage of them all.  

I refuse to rest on my laurels and will continue promote my dream and my next books, all works in progress.  Stay tuned and buckle in…Its going to be a bumpy ride.
