Immortals never resolve conflict with lovers or enemies. They either entomb the turmoil, literally, or shroud it in their past, never expecting to face the fight once more. Knowing if they ever did, for better or worse, life would never be the same again.

Five years ago life was good at the Boneyard. The Sons, led by Reveca Beauregard, were unstoppable. Judge was in love. For the first time in his existence, he’d found acceptance, balance, and a rush in a lover. He found it within the soul of Adair Vallet, a mortal. In one beat, the unthinkable befell the Sons. One of their own turned on them, forcing a divide. A Son had to die. A lover had to be let go. And for Judge, life stopped.

Today, Adair Vallet is oblivious of the man’s heart she still holds, yet she mourns the emptiness she feels within. Her life explodes into action when the dead rise and she’s forced into the clutches of the Pentacle Sons. Quickly she finds herself twisted into a malevolent past thick with betrayal, mysticism, and passion.

Edge is a novella series in a Paranormal Biker Romance, set in the great city of New Orleans. Rich with action, mystery, romance, and mysticism.

Death came first…

When Reveca first crossed King she knew her heart was stolen. She’d never get over the likes of him. Not a warrior who understood the power within her and flamed it into life–a man who could read her soul with one gaze.

She was right.

He was ripped from her side, and she was imprisoned. The world around her died.

In a new life, in a new world, the pain was still as rich as the day it first tore her in two.

The dead call her the Queen of Darkness. To the living she’s the Pentacle Daughter, the only female member of the Pentacle Sons MC. Both were well aware that she was a witch better left uncrossed.

The balance between the wars her and the Sons fought with both the mortals and immortals fueled the adrenaline they all craved–needed, but it never tested them…that is until King returned days after the Club was shaken to its core by a sickening betrayal.

As the past and present collide, the stakes have never been higher for Reveca, or the Sons.

Award winning, Edge is a novella series in a Paranormal Biker Romance, set in the great city of New Orleans. Rich with action, mystery, romance, and mysticism.

The fun non boring Bio 🙂
I’m an obsessive daydreamer. Lover of loud alternative music. Addicted to Red Bull. I love to laugh until it hurts. Fall is my favorite season. Black is my favorite ‘shade.’ Strong believer in the saying: there is a reason for everything, therefore I search for ‘marked moments’ every moment of everyday…and I find them. Life is beautiful!

Boring one….
Jamie Magee has always believed that each of us have a defining gift that sets us apart from the rest of the world, she has always envied those who have known from their first breath what their gift was. Not knowing hers, she began a career in the fast paced world of business. Raising a young family, and competing to rise higher in that field would drive some to the point of insanity, but she always found a moment of escape in a passing daydream. Her imagination would take her to places she’d never been, introduce her to people she’s never known. Insight, her debuting novel, is a result of that powerful imagination. Today, she is grateful that not knowing what defined her, led her on a path of discovery that would always be a part of her.

Friction (A Station 32 Novel) Release Day Blitz

Romeo and Juliet had it easier. They came from warring families who clearly drew a line for them not to cross. It wasn’t the same with Easton and Georgia. They came from a town where family was precious and moments were cherished. Still, there were unspoken rules, such as not falling for your best friends kid sister—or testing troubled hearts.
The losses Easton and Georgia endured at a young age tossed them down separate paths, far from the sleepy town they both had roots within.

Now, broken roads and bad decisions were the demons in their pasts—choices that would either draw them together, or rip them apart when chance landed them face to face once more. 

“I tend to attract the broken.”
“I’m not broken,” Easton snapped in a hiss of words.
She felt her body tense before her next bold words came. “Did I say you were?” She lifted her chin. “Am I attracting you, Easton Ballantine?”
He looked right at her, green to blue, a stare reaching past the fraudulent calm surface. Yes, she was. Which only pissed him off more. Not only was she not anywhere near his type, she was Memphis’s kid sister, Lucas’s daughter—she was seventeen. No way in hell this is going down.
He smirked to break the gaze they shared, to put a wall between her and him—to do anything to block the way she was messing with his head.
“I’m every kind of bad habit you don’t want or need, Georgia.”

Six Reasons Why Your Book Is Not Selling


Getting your book noticed in the indie market is always a daunting task.  While there are probably hundreds of ways to market and promote your book, we can tell you six distinct reasons why your book is not selling.


#6  Your book cover looks like you had a three year old design it.

Let’s be honest.  Everyone judges a book by it’s cover.  This is your first impression to the reader.  I can tell you from personal experience, that 9 times out of 10 when walking around a book store, I pick up a book based on if I love the cover or not.

If your book cover looks like it was made is MS Paint, then no reader is going to trust that you actually took the time to write a descent story.  They are going to think that your writing is as sloppy as your photoshop skills and they won’t want to spend those few dollars on something that looks like it will be crap.

You should also keep in mind that most readers find their next book while on Amazon.  So they are only seeing a thumbnail image of your cover.  If it looks like a jumbled mess, they will move on to the next one.

Cover designers are can be expensive.  But others are not.  A lot of designers sell pre-designed covers that you can purchase for pretty reasonable amounts.  Or you could call in a favor to your friend that knows their way around photoshop.  Either way, get the cover done by someone that knows what they are doing.

You want a reader to swoon over your cover, not laugh at it.


#5 You have no reviews.

When I go on Amazon to find my next book, the second thing I do after checking out the cover and the blurb is see how many reviews the book has.  Why do I do this?  Because I want to know before buying if other people have liked it.  Do I take every review to heart?  No.  Because I know my taste in what I like to read can be different.  However, I always like to see that other people enjoyed reading it.

But how do I get early reviews before a launch?  Well that’s easy.  Contact book bloggers that read and review your genre and offer them an ARC.  Post about offering ARCs on your Facebook Page.  Contact Goodreads reviewers.  There’s no wrong way to go about this, you just have to sit down and do it.

 

#4 Your blurb is boring.

If while reading your book blurb I am a put to sleep that is not a good sign.  A book blurb is the first things (after the cover and reviews) that readers will check out before they decide to one-click.  It needs to be exciting.  I needs to make me want to read your book the second that I buy it.   Take your time on this, and have your friends and family critique it.  Ask them if they would want to read the book based on that description.

 

#3 Pricing.

Your pricing strategy matters when it comes to e-books.  If you are charging $10.99 as an indie author I can guarantee that your book is sitting at the highest rank possible in the Amazon store.

It is a sad fact that the indie community has somewhat trained its readers to expect books for 99¢ and $2.99.  That being said, indie authors can step out of this expectation and charge more for their books (as long as their writing helps back up the price).

I think it’s best to play with your pricing a bit to see what price point works best for your fans.  I have found that going from 99¢, to $2.99, to $3.99  and so on for the number of books in your series tends to be a great pricing strategy, however, this has not worked for everyone.


#2 You are writing outside the trend.

A market trend is a fad that a group of people follow.  After Twilight, YA Paranormal Romance was a huge market trend in the indie writing community.  As of right now, the market trend is on the dark, edgy and smutty side and this is all because of the huge success of Fifty Shades of Grey.  Market trends are important to follow in the book industry because by watching them you are easily able to see what is “hot” right now.

If you want to write for a living in the indie community, then you need to be writing inside the market trends. By doing so, you will have a higher chance of gaining new readers, because they are looking for more books to read like Fifty Shades of Grey.  Do trends change and swing back to old ones?  Yes they do, which is why it is important to stay on top of where the trend is going.

 Now of course there are always exceptions to this rule.  Authors that have worked and cultivated their fan bases over the years are fine to write outside of the trends because their fan base is so large and excited about their books that they will purchase anything that author releases.  

Am I saying that you have to quit writing your awesome Twilight-esque YA Paranormal Romance?  No, but know that you will not hit the Amazon top 100 by releasing that right now during this current market trend.

 

#1 Your story just plain sucks or it is poorly edited.

This should be the most obvious reason, but sadly it is one of the most forgotten ones.

The EASIEST way to make sure your book is a success is to make sure you have a FANTASTIC book.  Make sure that it is the best story you have ever written.  Spend time on crafting that story creating wonderful plot twists instead of cliche story turns.  Create characters that the readers want to root for, not Bella knock offs that make me want to fling my kindle across the room.

Once you have that story written, then get it professionally edited.  Yes, this is an expense, however, it is worth it to present your book at it’s very possible best.  Get real story critiques from trusted friends and family.  Ask them to honestly tell you what they felt and if they see plot holes, or glaring comma mistakes, or anything that could make your story the best it can be.

After your book has undergone the editing process, then it is time to let it out into the world.

I hope these few tips help you make your book the best is can be.  If you would like more book marketing advice check out our Youtube Channel where we post marketing tips and host Google Hangouts.

 

Happy writing!
