Marketing Tip Monday – Tip #2 – How to Sell books with a Takeover & 321 One-Year Anniversary Giveaway

Marketing Tip Monday 0

Well, takeovers are a touchy subject with romance authors these days. Ask just about anyone if they are doing takeovers and they will tell you no. They don’t work. But I’m here to tell you they can work if you do them right. I’m super behind on my current book so I’m going to make this short. So here are the secrets to a FANTASTIC Facebook Fan Page takeover. BTW, you can do this on your own page or a book blogger page. I do both, depending on how hard I want to work on the graphics. 1. Typically takeovers… Read more »

What is the reading order for your books? The number one question I get is “What is the reading order of your books?” Well, in a nutshell, because I only have about ten minutes to write this as I enjoy my coffee, here it is. (You can find all my books on Amazon, Nook, iTunes, and KOBO using those links to my respective author pages.) The Rook & Ronin series is about a girl who escaped an abusive relationship and ended up in Denver, Colorado where she gets an offer of a lifetime. A chance encounter or a twist of… Read more »

Marketing Tip Monday 0

I’ve been thinking about making some kind of author marketing course. I just bought this killer fucking course authoring software for my other business (I make online courses for homeschoolers) and this program is the fucking shit for making online courses. (Storyline 2 if anyone is interested.) So I figured I’d try and put one together before the end of the year, but in the meantime, I’d start making content by blogging. Now these blog posts will not be in depth, just quick tips, because I just don’t have much more than a few hours to devote to each post… Read more »

The house is big and the kitchen is far, but I can hear the bustle of kids and dogs before I even make it downstairs. When I walk in, it’s a madhouse. I love this fucking madhouse. My girls are all laughing and talking a mile a minute. Belle is stuffing her face with pancakes, Jasmine and Ariel are clinking their OJ glasses together like they are having a secret toast, and Rory is…… Read more »

  EXCERPT Her panties go flying past my shoulder and I let off a little grunt of a laugh. “You think you’re cute—” “I did what you asked,” she says. “Now you have to do something for me. Take off your gloves.” “No.” “Why?” “Because I don’t ever take them off.” “Liar. You have to shower.” “You’re not in charge here, Molly. I am.” It might piss her off, but I don’t want to go there yet. I just want this one time where we don’t have to think about who and what I’ve become since she last saw me…. Read more »

anti-hero, Dark, EXCERPTS, GIVEAWAY, SuperAlpha Series 0

COVER REVEAL VIDEO: This is a hand drawn cover by Ambro Jordi – watch him draw the main image in time-lapse: “Please,” he says. The word is so soft. So filled with longing, and regret, and emotion. It reminds me of that friend of his while we were dancing. His plea makes me want to obey. Against my will, I try to convince myself. But it’s a lie. There is something here… like it’s on the tip of my tongue. Like my brain has been keeping secrets and they’re about to explode out of me. So I reach down, grab… Read more »

“You came,” he says, after a few moments of rest. His eyes open and he looks straight at me. “You came in my mouth.” I just stare back. Unable to talk. Unable to comprehend what he’s saying. “You’re a liar.” He smiles. “But I’m a good one, right?” “What?” “You believed me. And you know why you believed me, Shannon?” “That never happened?” He scoffs. “Please, how drunk would you have to be for me to suck you off and never wake you up? Do you know why you believed me?” “You’re a psycho,” I say, floored. “Because you want… Read more »

How to Tell a Story, JA Huss Style

Useless Junk 0

When I first starting writing Clutch, my very first fiction book, I thought a lot about how I’d like to tell this story. It started, as someone accused me in a review, in medias res – in the middle of the action. It was not a complimentary review, but whatever. I knew what I was doing then and I know what I’m doing now. I decided to start Junco in the middle of a crisis. Her father was dead, she was alone, fleeing something. Moving forward towards something, and utterly confused and out of her mind. Maybe it didn’t make… Read more »

Julie's Crazy Ideas, Marketing 0

So last year on New Adult Addiction (my personal book blog) I ran a little promo thing for authors (who are not me) called The 13 Days of Gift Card Giveaways. And I had an overwhelming response from authors wanting to be featured. Unfortunately there were only thirteen spots and it was a rush thing on my part so most of the people on it were friends who saw my post first. So this year I’m gonna do it different. (1) It will run for all 31 days of December and each author will be featured on the blog with… Read more »
