How To Understand And Adapt

To A Changing World.

Profound and intelligently presented, it is hard to imagine anyone reading The Earth Experience and not  approaching life with renewed vigour as  Hunter presents a view that is both original and refreshingly devoid of trite and abstract complexity.

 

Southern Historical Fiction At It's Very Best

A tale told through the eyes of Sallee and the answers she solicits from Ethel, Morony delivers a masterful narrative that is beguiling, flawlessly executed and proves a fine example of New Historical Fiction. With a meticulous ear for dialogue, Morony’s diction is simply exquisite.

Exceptional Paranormal Romance

A highly luminous and irresistible Paranormal Fantasy novel, Beyond Every Mirror, does something quite rare and manages to make something altogether new from familiar pickings. Smartly plotted, she creates a living, breathing, dimension that fits well with the characters she’s created and without relying on genre tropes.

There’s one truth we are loathed to admit. Book reviews no longer sell books like they used to! It‘s a bold statement that needs quantifying and of course there are exceptions, but in the main this post is aimed at the 95% of traditionally published and indie published authors who struggle to get more than a handful of reviews for their books.

The Ultimate Whodunit Novel!

Vibrant and compelling, author VL Towler brandishes her pen with unabashed flair as  she admirably declines to serve up the archetypal forensic fiction found in the majority of police procedurals, eschewing the tedium of less imaginative works to take her readers on an intriguing journey that challenges racial and cultural stereotypes.

 

Unless you have been on a desert island for the last 10 years you can’t log on to Twitter or Facebook without finding an author tweeting about their latest book. Readers will often make purchasing decisions based upon the strength of a post and it’s rare for an author to make it into the spotlight on the strength of a book alone.

Increasing Book Sales Using Social Media

A Powerful Account of Love after Loss

Beautifully written there is a rawness and vulnerability here that is likely to make readers cry over and over again, but it will also help them to confront their own losses and understand better how they can have a wholehearted and meaningful life after the loss of a loved one.

Literary prizes will stimulate sales, but first and foremost should reward great writing.

To simply ask authors if they favour paying for professional book reviews would add little value. We wanted to dig a little deeper and find a correlation between paid book reviews and increased book sales and with an author mailing list of over 25,000 we are reasonably well placed to ask the most pertinent questions.

Success as an author means creating the right foundations for a book to go viral.  Despite a plethora of ‘guru’s’ who are happy to help authors part with their money, going viral in the real context of the word should be an aspiration, never a given, but you can load the odds in your favour.

Creating The Foundations For Viral Book Sales.

A riveting Victorian Romance, The Last Earl by Lara Blunte proves a literal tidal force in a genre which often suffers from a lack of originality. Beautifully written in prose that vividly capture Bluntes evocative setting, the mood is further augmented by a bewitchingly vibrant blend of emotion and subtle levity which provides timely relief from the mounting tension.

2016 book award Live Life Colorfully Deadly Secrets The Earth Experience

A hugely entertaining thriller, Bishop's War proves a powerful debut which benefits from a great plot and pitch perfect execution. Take it for granted that Hines has delivered a solidly written piece of fiction, but there’s still a lot more to distinguish it. Winner of the 2016 Millennium Book Award this is one read you won't want to miss!

Email

There is an overwhelming tendency in indie publishing for authors to follow trends and no better example than in the building and growing of powerful mailing lists. However, a surprisingly low 43% of authors rate email marketing as a major contributor to overall book sells. We look at the reasons why and identify the mistakes that can lead to lost book sales.

A  highly original and addictive thriller

A story of fascinating scope and suspense, other writers labour long and hard to achieve the fevered intrigue that comes so naturally to David Lake and there’s no mistaking that his novel Tears Of Glass is one of a kind.  Hands down it is one of the best novels you will read this year.

It‘s a mind-boggling concept on which to dwell but rather than reiterate established rhetoric Hunter brings a unique and original perspective on which we might want to reflect.  In doing so he asks us to consider the broader mysteries of the human mind, how we construct thoughts, the accumulation of knowledge and the latent power of our dreams.
