In Celebration of All the Recent Four & Five Star Reviews this month,  SHADES of GRAY is FREE  Feb. 12 and 13th!

The review was originally posted at Library Cat book blog.  Currently at Amazon and GoodReads.     Jan. 22, 2013cvr

When I started reading this book, at first I thought that was just one of those  “Fifty Shades of Gray” books. The ones very similar to the very famous trilogy.  Nothing prepared me for the emotional and thrilling story that followed.

I can’t believe that it’s a debut novel.

At the 2012 Miami Book Fair, Self-Publishing Takes Center Stage

By Andrew Albanese |
Nov 20, 2012

There still may be some questions about the potential impact of self-publishing, but if the 2012 Miami Book Fair is any indication, self-publishing has gained acceptance among readers and would-be authors. From a pre-fair feature article in the Miami Herald to an informative panel on self-publishing—a prominent theme for this year’s fairgoers was: how do I get published? And in a visible change from even just a year ago, the question is no longer whether self-publishing is a viable option, but rather how to do it—and do it well.

Today I’m debunking myths within the indie world. In other words, I’ve heard some crazy rumors flying around some writing blogs and I want to get the truth out for a couple of reasons. 1) I hate how negative rumors can ruin a very good thing. 2) If I were a new writer considering indie publishing my book, I know for a fact that if I read some of the false blogs about inflated costs, I’d probably never take the risk to indie pub my books and that makes me sad. 😦
