Authors, Writers, Publishers, and Book Readers
My latest release is my first historical fiction A Handful of Blossoms (ISBN 9781471727962), 96 000 words, self-published on Smashwords and Lulu. Paranormal romance.

A story of a sixteen-year-old damsel and her weird marriage. Time: 1764, a year after the Seven…Continue

This new breakout book by EL James, just acquired by Random House, has gone through a plethora of reactions from readers and writers alike. You can say it has drawn Good, Bad and Ugly comments and feelings from anyone who has been touched by it, or rather, clobbered over the head by it.

When considering my interpretation of a breakout novel, for this topic I'm referring to a book that is pre-publication and pulling in a lot of interest from either agents or editors.

That's post-publication. We've seen some of the self-published e-books do this just recently. But what if you're in…Continue
