“Want more. When is the next book coming out? Good start to a continuing series that has wonderful potential for many more.”
The Alexandria Publishing Group is much more than a group of writers. Members include cover artists, editors, promotional gurus and book formatters as well. This week I’m highlighting these fantastic people – people who don’t normally see the limelight – the unsung heroes of APG.
Rik Hall – http://rikhall.com/
If you’re looking to get your book formatted you cannot go wrong with Rik Hall. He’s thorough, extremely capable and chock full of helpful information. He’ll make your book shine from the inside out no matter the format.
Kai Wilson and Kriss Morton - http://thefinishingfairies.com/
From hosting and blog design, to launch blitzes, to long term (month – year) social media campaigns The Finishing Fairies are there for you. Let them do the work of promoting your book so you can write more!
Kai also offers low cost advertising on her site http://indiereaders.com/
Renee Barratt – http://thecovercounts.blogspot.com/
Best Artist winner of the 2012 Preditors and Editors Reader’s Poll, you can believe Renee’s covers are fantastic! Her talents do not lie with just one genre or look either. She’s the full package and can provide your book with the cover it deserves.
Mary Ann Peden-Coviello – https://www.facebook.com/MaryAnnPedenCovielloAuthorEditor
Mary Ann calls her business MANA Editing (Mary Ann’s Nasty Attitude Editing), but don’t let the name fool you. She’s only nasty about finding mistakes and fixing errors. If you want your book to be error-free, then Mary Ann is the person you want to hire.
April held an unexpected surprise for my family. We got a terrific opportunity to move into a much larger house in an extremely nice neighborhood for roughly the same amount we had paying at the old place. No brainer right?
So my April plans for doing Camp Nano were derailed while we packed and cleaned and moved and unpacked and settled into our new area.
May, I thought! May I can do my own Camp Nano! So far that hasn’t worked out in my favor either. I have gotten some writing done but it’s really been sporadic. There’s just so much to do around the new place, new locks, new light fixtures, hanging things up, more unpacking, and all the cleaning. Plus, while the house is bigger it’s also noisier so I have a hard time getting into the ‘zone’.
But yesterday things changed. Our longterm houseguest left (he’d been staying with us since December) and I now get his room as my writing space. I can go in there and close the door and write to my heart’s content. And I only have to share my space with the cats, who’ve also laid claim to the space.
This should up my word count considerably. At least until the next guest arrives.
Today I have a couple unique adventures. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
A Midsummer Night Adventure by Paul Kater only $0.99 on Amazon!
Two old people in a home, waiting for the end of their lives. As time fleets by, they go on one last adventure, while the summer heat is bearing down on them.
Adventures come in all kinds and shapes…
Servant of the Gods by Valerie Douglas only $3.99 on Amazon!
Orphaned as a child, Irisi became a mercenary to survive. Captured by the Egyptian army and made the spoils of war, she finds herself forced to fight in the ring for entertainment. In a desperate attempt to regain her freedom she throws herself on the mercy of the Gods, only to discover that her fate is written in prophecy…
