Who's Really Robbing God Anyway?

There are many questions around tithing and giving money to the church and the bible has much to say about the subject with many hundreds of references. It is no wonder then that the subject of tithing has become largely misunderstood with “Kleptomaniac: Who's Really Robbing God Anyway?” proving a timely release.

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.

A wonderfully nuanced and compelling read, Stainer proves a genuine gem of a novel, with Woulff effortlessly capturing the highs and lows of growing up in the nineteen seventies. Eminently readable and consistently entertaining it has an openness that is unexpected with Woulff creating a cast of characters who seem wholly plausible.

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.

Military tech novels have now become something of a  subgenre, exploring weapons and warfare in the far-flung futures of our imaginations but here Woodward keeps it tantalisingly close to reality and the times in which we find ourselves.

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 story that feels intensely personal, yet universal in its themes and humanness, riveting is the word that readily springs to mind when describing White Crane, Lend Me Your Wings. With all the elements of a great epic Tsewang Yishey Pemba’s tale is full of powerfully emotive images and the reward for his readers is a period novel that feels powerfully authentic to its time and place.  

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.

An Exceptional Novel From An Author

Who Is Always On Top Form

It has often been said that one of the best ways to better understand racism is to just pick up a book and that's certainly true with Black and White where Burgess JR forces us to consider our determined ignorance and prejudices. With a candid and unflinching exploration of his subject he remind sus that we're far from finished with the old racial stereotypes.

A must-read for fans of

Civil War era historical fiction.

Logan’s hunt has begun!

A sharp, taut, action-packed military thriller that keeps you engrossed from start to finish, Sins Of The Father is one of those intelligent novels that leaves us in no doubt as to who everybody is, where they are, what they're doing and why. More importantly, Michael Reid Jr is quite exceptional when it comes to building intrigue and suspense.

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.

Southern Historical Fiction At Its Very Best

Smart, fast paced and soundly executed, The Eagle and the Child: The Child, sees Khubiar taking a rivetingly plausible central theme, and delivering a power packed romantic thriller. With far too many novels in the genre centring on clichéd protagonists it’s refreshing to see an author break the mould.

A tight and convincing noir thriller Going Gone is a step change from Dickason’s Sentinels Of The Night and commendably stronger for it. Fast-paced, the supernatural elements are pared-back with the focus on dense realism but her fans will be pleased to see there’s no diminution in the quality of Dickason’s prose or the excitement she generates.
