June 29 Update: Minutes Before Sunset won Book of the Month on Goodreads! Check it out here, and share your thoughts in an open discussion group. Thank you so much for your support, everyone! If it wasn’t for you guys, I wouldn’t be here, and I owe every delightful moment of excitement to you! Thank you!
If you follow me on a regular basis, then you already know what this is, but today is the last day to vote, and I had to share it. Minutes Before Sunset is nominated for Book of the Month on Goodreads, and I’m very excited and flattered to be a part of this competition, because it’s a physical gift for all of the hard work everyone has gone through to help me achieve this.
These are the current rankings (showing the top five):
As you can see, Minutes Before Sunset is in first place with 53 votes, but every vote brings me happiness through the encouragement you all have shown. In order to vote, you either need a Facebook, Twitter, or Goodreads. When you click on this link, join “Making Connections” (top right of the picture) so it can register the vote.
This is another reason I’m sharing this.
“Making Connections” is a great group which allows authors and readers to connect and promote their novels. For instance, Book of the Month for August is up for nominations, and every month in the future will come after. There are also groups within the groups in order to talk about marketing within the indie publishing industry and beyond. Even if you don’t vote, I highly encourage checking out this group.
This is the group’s direct description online: “Over 1000 books listed to Read & Review…..come join us. This is a place for Authors, Bloggers, Publishers, Reviewers, Book Tours, Giveaways, and Interviews to make connections, find followers, ask for help with Blog Tours, Interviews, or just need some help with your blog.”
Again, please vote for Minutes Before Sunset, but I understand if you can’t. “Making Connections” is a fantastic meeting place for authors, and I hope some of you join. You’re always welcome to add me as a friend too!
Bogart and I are working hard, and by that I mean I’m working hard and Bogart is working hard to distract me with cuddles. (Don’t worry; I love it.)
As I finish up the editing of “Seconds Before Sunrise” (Book 2 of a Timely Death series), I wanted to share something I received from a reader.
Upcoming author, Gregory Lamb, gave Minutes Before Sunset 5 stars and wrote this review:
“I loved the character development. I think young adult readers will be able to identify with them. I’m looking forward to reading the the other books in the series.”
Read this rest here, and I’m looking forward to posting more in the future.
