The Hottest Promo/Marketing Tips I Know (Part 1)

You’ve  probably heard of some of these. Some are obvious. Others might be hidden gems, ready for your experimentation. I'm hooked up with some best-selling authors and they're giving up some tips and strategies. One, who is selling part of a dark fantasy series right now hit five top-ten spots on Amazon through Amazon's Daily Deal campaign that went on for a couple days (it's still bearing fruit after a month). His four e-books, which are part of a six-book series, were reduced from $4.95 and…See More

The Next Big Thing

Boy, I'll tell ya. We have a thread entitled The Next Big Thing over at the AbsoluteWriter forum and it's a interesting foray into the crystal ball skill of predicting what the reading world will latch onto in 2014. We've run the gamut of everything to horror to New Adult. It is/was like predicting the genre of J.K. Rowling new book that came out a while ago. Everybody was taking a stab at and, of course, it ended up being a mystery.  It's fascinating to note that the scuttlebutt from the…See More

"I love the glitter touch and subtle imagery. Just glad it didn't have a half-naked dude with six-pack abs and a swooning female. It's got some class, and was rendered by Intrigue Publishing."

Driving Traffic to Your Website

 A lot of authors try to reach customers via their website. This is a rather generic article that might encompass other products, but it works well for books, poetry and short stories that you might have listed on retail sites. A website is a wonderful tool to reach the masses whether you are selling products and services, books, or programs. It's almost a given for any serious author and many publishers ask writers if they have a current website, or even a blog that will afford promotion…See More

My Latest Release is The Wolfen Strain

The Wolfen Strain is a twist on the werewolf trope, ala Michael Crichton and what he did with Jurassic Park. A DNA experiment goes horribly wrong, unleashing a hybrid female wolf, an ice dire wolf and a grotesque monster. A lonely forest ranger runs headlong into all three of them, amid the glorious and wondrous Wyoming wilderness.

#1 in horror at BookStrands for the 30-day bestseller

#2 in thriller category

http://www.amazon.com/The-Wolfen-Strain-ebook/dp/B008G0PE2U/ref=sr_1_5?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1341434276&sr=1-5

The Wolfen Strain  
 

Tagline/Hook:

Seth Anson, a lovelorn forest ranger, never thought that he would shoot the first eligible woman he met after his divorce. Nor did he think that he would fall in love with her after nursing her back to health. But he certainly isn’t prepared to find out that she is the result of a DNA cloning experiment gone horribly wrong and, is in fact, a hybrid wolf/human. To complicate matters, she also has no idea of her true identity.

Seth finds out early on that Melina Salinger is a handful. He mistakenly believes that she suffers from hypertrichosis (werewolf syndrome), and that she has escaped from a care facility. She confesses later that she has been confined in an underground missile silo by her geneticist father, Davis Salinger, and the only thing she knows about everyday life has been gleaned from video movies and television. Now she wants to be a normal girl.

It isn’t easy trying to indoctrinate a woman into society who pants, growls and thinks that Emerald City is a real place somewhere over the rainbow. The ritual shavings and skin maintenance are enough to drive him crazy. Moreover, when she goes into a feverish estrus cycle, sex and passion seem like blunt-force trauma.

Just when Seth thinks he has things under control, Melina becomes deathly ill. Her mysterious father shows up to offer aid, and then shockingly confesses that she carries ancient wolf DNA. After recovering, Melina, shamed and traumatized by this knowledge, becomes suicidal and runs away. Only her father left out the part about her other littermate – a grotesque monster, Romulus, has just broken out of the silo compound. Romulus is bent on finding her for the purpose of mating and will kill anyone who gets in his way.

Seth has to use his skills as a ranger to find Melina in the Wyoming wilderness. He has Romulus out in front of him, the National Guard, the sheriff’s office, a maniac cryptozoologist, and every monster-hunting vigilante in the state hot on his heels. He has to decide if it is guilt that drives him on his quest to find Melina, or that somehow, this wild and beautiful female was destined to be the love of his life.

The Wolfen Strain examines the lurid morality issues that are dealt with in The Island of Doctor Moreau. Yet the predominant theme is that of forbidden love, found in Beauty and the Beast, only with the gender rolls reversed

Chris, top of the milky way to you,  and welcome to authors.com  …from The Chuck-master of Science Fiction Fantasy and fun…
        I write sci-fi fantasy novels filled with adventure, mystery, romance, drama, horror, and plenty of comedy… Sci-fi for every adult human to enjoy. I'm also a well-known published poet. When you have a few free moments to spare, please check out my Authors page and a few of my videos and blogs I have recently added. Many of my blogs consist of free to read enjoyable sci-fi stories that I reedited and united these twenty-two stories within an eBook titled: 'Epic Marvels'. One of my recent sci-fi novels is titled: 'They!', which is somewhat related to the 1954 sci-fi classic movie, 'Them!' I've just completed my next sci-fi mystery, titled: 'The Mysteries of Fuller Park'. A fun story based on the eerie satanic urban legends of Fuller Park, Athens, Texas. My next novel title is: 'It's Not A Lovable Pet Story!' LOL... It sure isn't another lovable pet story. Its Sci-fi horror at its best for delighting my many thousands of reading fans. Also, check out my famous 'Apollo Trilogy Novels'… Thanks…

Please let me know if you'd like to become friends.

The Chuck!

Don't know if I'm answering in the correct box or not, but thanks for the welcome, Chuck, and it's good to see you out this way on the end of the spiral arm. I too write SF adventure, packed with thrills and spills. Planet Janitor Custodian of the Stars is on Amazon and doing fairly well there. I'm no Hal Space Jock, but I'll give him a run for his money.

I'll check out your sites and see what's up. Let's keep SF alive and well with the best we can produce.

BTW, I do believe I've seen the title "They" somewhere, in some group, but I can't remember exactly where it was--might have seen it more than once, I'm sure.. I did love the old flick Them, and watch it whenever it comes on.
