“An imaginative and thought-provoking read.” -Amazon reviewer

Blurb and description:  Seeing Through Sampson’s Eyes, a futuristic sci-fi, coming of age novella, tells the tale of Abrielle and Norrie, both on a journey to find what was lost of their loved one, which quickly becomes an individual journey for each of them, with many lessons in store.  *This is the second in a series, yet also reads well as a stand-alone.

Blurb:  Who knows what secrets lie behind one’s eyes? You have no idea until you walk in their shoes. In a technologically advanced, yet socially regressing society, Norrie, daughter of Sampson and Abrielle, is about to learn what it’s like to be considered less than human. She is now twenty, curious, confident, and unstoppable. Embarking on a journey together, Norrie and Abrielle set out to discover what remains of their beloved Sampson, yet each ends up pursuing her own individual end goal. Walk with Abrielle and Norrie to see what they will find.

New e-book published! From Bedlam to Ben

 

My 75 year old mother says, “I just want to put my arms around him.” (So, I chose well, huh)?  She was referencing the cover of my latest e-book, From Bedlam to Ben.  Ben is fearless, protective, strong, and full of inner turmoil.  Read about Ben’s struggle and transformation through, oh wait, that’s what the trailer is for.  Give it a look?

From Bedlam to Ben, a sci-fi novelette with romance, tension, and turmoil, is now available for .99 download on Smashwords at http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/656337 and on Amazon at http://amzn.to/2b3ND3O

With the purchase of this e-book, the reader is given a link to sign-up to receive a 20 page short story that is a spin-off of my upcoming time travel novel.  I say “upcoming” loosely; I just started editing and it most likely will be coming out in a year, since I insist on holding a full-time job.  Stubborn, I am.  🙂  I am also hoping to get this time travel book into print and e-book form.  So much to learn…

Please do give the book trailer a look, download the novelette for .99.  It is a continuation of the Made for Me series but reads well as a stand alone as well.  I may not publish many e-books for a while, since I am gestating a full-length book, and I intend for it to be fully cooked and served just right!  You may get more short stories from me in the interim; ideas just pop up at times.

Happy reading, everyone!  For those of you who are like me, happy writing!  May you be driven, ambitious, obsessed, sleepless,  but most of all, inspired!

The Book Trailer Journey! #selfpublishing #newrelease

“Seeing Through Sampson’s Eyes,” sci-fi

My second Kindle ebook is now live for download at Amazon! http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01GNNCHHQ  Downloadable for 2.99, or free in Kindle Unlimited!  I feel like it is more action-packed and suspenseful than the first.  This is less romance, and more coming of age, sci-fi, in a technologically advanced future, though it is somewhat of a sequel to my first book.   A twenty year old searches for her identity.  And flirts with danger.  (Didn’t we all)?  Here, I am documenting my humorous, albeit frustrating journey to get a book trailer out on social media beforehand to promote it….

6/06: 7:48 a.m. Facebook post:  Finished a cool book trailer video for my sequel, and my laptop ate it….or maybe The Cloud ate it? It’s gone. Next time, I’ll feed it cookies first. ‪#‎backtostepone‬ ‪#‎learnbytrialanderror‬

Evening of 6/06, Inner monologue:  Okay, I have the bare bones outline still saved from 5 days ago.  I’ll just add to that.  Have to change Dr. Parington’s photo.  Add my book cover at the start and end of the video.  Edit captions, make font bigger.  Add music.  Slow down 3rd and 5th frames.  Add Amazon link (Now live) for the Kindle book.  Save.  Double check saving. (Can’t lose again, please, not again.)  This music is perfect.  Now, upload to Youtube.  Why is the little red-haired girl the main visual (thumbnail, that’s what they call it)? She’s too cute.  This video conveys suspense.  Oh, I can change the thumbnail.  (Sees only two other options, neither are any more representative of the tone I want to communicate.  Uggg!)  Okay, I’ll abandon the idea of changing the thumbnail.  Maybe I’ll figure that out someday.

*Saves again.  Crashes, way past bedtime.*

6/07: 8:01 a.m. So, I need to use some wording that conveys that this is not a cutesie little story,  despite the thumbnail, but rather, that it is more suspenseful and intense.  Got it.

Facebook post:  “Book trailer finished! The cute redhead will now lead you through the rabbit hole: ‪#‎KindleEbooks‬ ‪#‎Newrelease‬ ‪#‎indiewriter‬ ‪#‎scifi‬ https://youtu.be/PQuKD6LUZGY  This is a sequel, but could be read alone.  Thank you for watching!”   *I think I better hurry and log off so I can get to work!*

After all that trouble,  I’ve had many compliments on my book trailer!  All because I did not give up.  And I won’t.  Ever.

It was referred to as “intense” and “the best I’ve seen.”  Now it has been viewed 43 times.  This is one way to spread the word about my book!  Now, please, go watch the trailer! http://youtu.be/PQuKD6LUZGY     And maybe, just maybe, download and read the book!
