Reblog: Author Interview at Sybrina’s Book Blog

You can view the original post here: https://sybrina-publishing.blogspot.com/2020/01/pump-up-your-book-blog-tour-stellar.html Can you tell us a few things about yourself? I’d love to! I’m a self-published author of (currently) four novels. I’m not stopping there! But I actually prefer to be outside, rain or shine.

Fiction Novels: How Creating a Language Can Enhance a Story

I originally wrote this as a guest post for Blogging Authors. You can view it here: https://bloggingauthors.blogspot.com/2020/01/fiction-novels-how-creating-language.html How weird would it be if all aliens spoke English? Or witches and warlocks had no spells?

New Cover: Lost Souls

I’ve been on a Shutterstock kick. Thought I’d show you what I did this morning. So many wonderful, talented artists out there… I wish I could create art like you. But, hey, you need customers too! 🙂 Lost Souls is the second book in the Infinite Spark Series, following Stellar Fusion, my first self-published novel. […]

New Cover: Stellar Improvements & Wrestling Marketing

So like every self-published (author), I have fallen in the hole of dead space after the initial upswing of family orders. It was expected but not any less disheartening. If you’re like me, you’ve probably read several books on increasing royalties via better marketing practices: change the keywords, the cover, the description, advertise on all […]
