Can a future be built on the

quicksand of secrets and lies?

Casting a powerful, spell over its readers High Hopes Is not a novel to rest on conventional melodrama. Lilley’s characters aren't just talking to each other, they're revealing things about themselves and in that act of discovery they feel overwhelmingly real.

 

A vibrant, new voice in

Paranormal Fantasy fiction.

Cronin is at the top of his game!

Combining literary flair with the psychological insight that is often missing in the Science Fiction genre, Recusant proves a noteworthy follow-up to Cronin’s Hegira  with its intriguing characters it entertains from the start, quickly building momentum and doesn’t let go of the reader’s attention until the very end

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.

Reviews That Make Bestsellers

It's rare that a novel takes on a daring subject and proves worthy of it but the aptly titled Ellen's War -Blue Skies & Tiger Moths proves the exception. It’s a genuine gem of a read which manages to transport and rivet us as Ellen’s story unfolds amid the prelude to World War II. It’s a time to which we've been before, but seldom rendered on such a personal level.

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.

A Highly inspirational read, A Flight Without Wings speaks directly to those who question the authenticity of anyone who has experienced a Near Death Experience seeing heaven or hell through death. For many readers, it will pose answers to the most pressing questions they may have about the meaning of life and what happens after we die.

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.

2016 book award

A smart and compelling read, The Adoption proves a powerful introduction to the novels of Greg Meritt. An elegantly crafted story that strikes the right balance between its psychological elements it is hugely atmospheric thanks to Meritts imaginative and visual style of writing which takes often clichéd genre tropes and makes them seem fresh and surprising.

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.

How can you commit the perfect crime?

Anthologies must consolidate, to ensure that every word is meaningful, and that’s certainly the case with Bloody Gulletts where Michael Golvach treats his readers to an enthralling collection of  bite-sized mind benders. Each one telling its story so strongly that we not only forgive the brevity of Golvach’s words, but welcome the suspension of disbelief without question.

A heart wrenching first love drama, A Tangled Web proves a welcome change from the deluge of paranormal offerings that seem to dominate YA Romantic Fiction. In Red Days, Sparrow’s Eco-Fiction novel, the success of her narrative hinged on her characters and here she brings a refreshing ordinariness to them which is pitch perfect.

A terrific page-turner, intense and powerful, For Luna proves a compelling debut novel with Abma clearly demonstrating a knack for creating vibrant and emotionally charged characters. With a labyrinthine plot and a likeable protagonist, it’s a strong beginning to what promises to be an excellent series.
