“You have to stay out there.”
“If you don’t promote yourself, no one will find you.”
Do those sound familiar? If not, no one is pushing you out loud. It’s true. If you don’t market, no one can find you. Be it paid ads, marketing departments, blog tours, you name it. They all have advantages. If they have the right reach and can target the market you want, they can be effective. That being said, I feel like for the most part my efforts fall on deaf ears.
It hurts when you see other authors being shared, but somehow you’re forgotten. It’s doesn’t help me motivate myself when I see small businesses being supported and never my books. Because lets face it, most authors are a small business. So what can we do when it feels like no one is listening? Well, push harder. Push through it And when in doubt, be creative.
I am trying new tactics. Yes, still pushing my books, but maybe in a different way. I want to catch more eyes, make people smile and laugh. I want them to see the business they support is human and wants to make them smile.
What are you creative ideas?
These are my latest. Thoughts?
It’s scavenger hunt time! Anyone ever play Ghosts in a Graveyard – a game of tag played at night? Some know it to be flashlight tag, but when I grew up across the street from a cemetery …
Well, guess what. Tag you’re it!
A sneak peek into my new book is the continuation of Finding Bell, about the Dark Queen and the Princess that came long before Bell. I’ve had plenty of questions about who the Dark Queen is and was. She isn’t the main Character, but rather the queen and mother of a princess desperate to get out of her own kingdom that is more a prison than a home. Her burden is to guard the portal of the demon realm and to never get the one she’s quietly loved forever.
What is your idea of Demons? Are they fallen angels or something much darker? Tell me your favorite Demon Book out there, favorite Angel story, or movie on either.
Romance / Fantasy
By Jana Begovic
Release Date: December 5, 2016
Keywords: Fantasy, Romance, Saga, Reincarnation, Destiny, Betrayal, Past lives, Passion
“Don’t you ever forget about me…,” echoes the karmic whisper from lives past, poisoning her peace.
“Don’t you ever forget about me…,” he whispers during their secret encounters. Like a curse, these simple words now haunt Leandra, a reputable psychiatrist, who finds herself in emotional chaos after the sudden breakup of her illicit affair. Unable to heal on her own and tormented by dreams in which supernatural forces create havoc with her fate, she desperately turns to David, a colleague psychiatrist, asking him to take her through past-life regression therapy. She hopes that this unorthodox and somewhat suspect technique will explain her profound connection to the lover who has abandoned her so abruptly.
The sessions take Leandra through 17th and 19th century Ireland, Italy and England, where love, loss and betrayal are the leitmotifs in an ambiance of co-mingled fantasy and reality. In her hypnotic state, Leandra recounts a saga of intoxicating love, dizzying passion, flaming lust and profound heartbreak. Despite the painful answers she finds under hypnosis, Leandra still cannot let go of the hope to reunite with her lover. Ultimately, the shattering revelations from her past-life incarnations, along with the turmoil over her ruined marriage, become the stepping stones of her introspective path to healing, self-discovery and an appreciation of true love.
With its seamlessly interwoven sub-plots, “Poisonous Whispers” lures the reader from one continent to another, from past to present. The affair at the center of the story is an anatomy of the heart in which the heroine’s sorrow-laced journey reflects the universal themes of love and loss.

It happened, I am officially an Amazon Best Selling Author! I know right? This is very exciting, I think.
In a sea of millions of books Once Upon a Time was noticed, and this is not an accident. How did we do it? Ads! Effective ad companies can actually help you get your name out there. Did we make back the money? I’ll send you that stats for Oct some time in November. I can tell you that the author who put together the anthology boasted that she made back her money in two days the first time the campaign was run on another title.
So what does it mean to be a best seller? At the moment I am not sure. I know it means that people thought our book was worth buying, and it means that Amazon will hopefully give us more visibility to sell. The thing is, we havn’t seen any additional reviews come through, something that is imperative to helping a book sell far longer than the initial release weeks.
It also means that I really need to get my next book in the series out. If people are noticing I need to keep up the momentum, something much easier said that done. All I can say is, I appreciate the author with a lot of experience in becoming a best seller for helping our book get to this point!

Sara: As the daughter of Senator and presidential hopeful Jentsen Holbrook, I
spent a good deal of my life under public scrutiny. What I wore. Where I went.
Who I dated. It was just the way of things. I’d become what was expected of
me, until I ran from my obligations and woke up one morning in Cross de
Raven’s and Eryk Hale’s world, two hot guitarists from the
mega-famous metal band, Cinder. For the first time, freedom to be myself was
within my reach. And along with that? Inevitable scandal.
Eryk: True beauty walked into my life, more beauty than I ever deserved. I partied
hard. Rocked harder. I wasn’t good enough to touch Sara’s petal-soft skin, hold
on tight, or love her, but regardless of my bad boy ways, no one was going to
stop me from trying.
Cross: Sometimes, no matter how hard we fight for what we want, love won’t save
the day, and truth doesn’t always set you free. Then again… Maybe, just maybe,
when you find the one you’ve been searching for, love can find a way.

The energy swirling through the dimly lit Tacoma
Dome was a living, pulsing entity unlike anything I’d experienced before.
Twenty thousand-plus people packed the space, chanting, “Cinder! Cinder!” while
holding lighters and cellphones in the air, so many it was as if millions of
fireflies took flight.

bracelets on our wrists—completely surrounded by warm bodies. Our bellies were
being pressed into the barrier separating us from the security personnel
outlining the front of the stage. Cobalt blue laser lights danced and smoke
rolled like fog, making the details of the stage hard to see, even from our
close vantage point.

I admonished, ready to throw myself in front of her if the guy went ballistic,
but he laughed and turned his attention to the stage.

“Ba-bump. Ba-bump,” reverberated from the domed ceiling.

jumping in place, and almost removing the short, fluttery sleeve in the

unbelievably deep voice bellowed out a war cry that mixed into the sound of
rumbling thunder and vibrated the floor beneath me.

came into view. “That’s Kris Kline. The bassist,” my bestie informed. Then two
more men, with fingers flying over their respective guitars appeared together,
leaning back to back within their own light show. “The hottie with the mirrored
sunglasses and black tour beanie on his head is Cross de Raven. He’s lead

two of them had this inexplicable sensuality about them in the way they swayed
together, which pretty much kept my attention trained on them until the last
guy rose up from an opening in the floor, reminiscent of a leather-clad
gladiator stopping center stage, causing the two guitarists to break apart—one
going left, the other right.

he uprooted. I tried to soak in the experience as he did this combination of
singing and screaming about annihilation. The lights, the sound, the
penetrating vibrations, the feel of bodies in motion, and the way the members
of Cinder worked every square inch of the stage was mesmerizing. I didn’t know
much if anything about metal music, but it was clear they were talented.

the bassist. I also returned to watching Cross and Eryk. If they kept up their
current high-powered pace of stomping, jumping, and leg lunges throughout the
duration of the concert, they’d never need to darken a gym, because they were
doing some killer cardio.
the song ended, Fade bellowed, “How are you tonight, Tacoma?” in a gravelly
crowd went berserk.

She wants to be human—to marry the young sailor she’s seen by the docks. When she’s given the opportunity to become human, she jumps at it, hoping to meet her dream man.
Only problem is—humans are not what she has thought all her life. They are greedy, money-hungry monsters. What if the man she’s secretly hoping for, is the one she was destined to marry? What if it’s not always greener on the other side?
Godmother Death – Kellie Honaker
Philip was just an infant when Death became his godmother. As a gift, she presents him with a barrel of cider that bestows miracles to those who drink from it.
