“Myth” and “The Mayan Ruins” …free (for now!)

I’ve recently joined several promotions through My Book Cave that have been working out fabulously! By signing up for the No Wyverns Publishing newsletter, a copy of Myth or The Mayan Ruins can be downloaded for free. So far it has been a very successful promotion – if you are interested in signing up, see below. (But hurry, the promotions are ending soon!) Read on!

Out with the old/In with the new

Hello, I’m here!

It’s been a whirlwind of a year so far, that’s for sure. I had my second daughter in March (hello, Esper!) and only just recently reclaimed my late-night writing/editing/business time after the kids go to sleep. (That’s right, my baby is sleeping through the night. Huzzah!) So things are in motion…it may be slow motion, but it’s onward and upward from here.

There are several projects in the works that will be released this summer. AND, have you noticed the amazing logo at the top of this post? No Wyverns Publishing has a brand new logo and website design and I LOVE it. Now I can finally go swag-purchasing-crazy. (No Wyverns shirts, anyone?)

In other news….the e-book for Myth will be on sale for .99 from June 23-30….so grab it while you can! I’m super excited about this sale, this is my first paid promotion that I have invested in. Several e-book deal sites will be including Myth in their daily deals email blast, which enables me to reach many, many more potential readers. Fingers crossed, I’ll post results after the promotion ends, which hopefully will be filled with many smiley faces and exclamation points.

Lastly, I’ve only planned one event (so far!) for 2017, and that’s the NW Book Festival in Portland, OR on July 29th. I attended this event last year and had great success, not only selling books but meeting other authors, as well. I’ll be at booth 45, over in the shady area by the Starbucks (hmmm, how convenient!) It’ll be hot. Guaranteed.

That’s all for now, check back for more frequent posts – I promise!

Bluefield High School, WV

I recently had the pleasure of emailing with the 10th grade English teacher at Bluefield High School in West Virginia. He is working at expanding their classroom library and I was very excited to send “Myth” to the other end of the United States! I hope the students there like the story! 🙂

Myth on Kindle Countdown

Myth - kindle countdown deal social media version

 

This is a busy time for Myth! I can’t believe the book has been out a month a half and I’m already very pleased with how it has been selling. I want to keep the ball rollin’! In addition to the Goodreads Giveaway that ends next week, Myth will also be on a Kindle Countdown Deal from September 10-16!

What’s a Kindle Countdown Deal? For a short amount of time, the usual retail of the Kindle version of Myth ($4.99) is reduced. It starts out at .99, then up to $1.99 a few days later, then $2.99, etc…until reaching back to the normal retail on the 17th. It’s a very popular promotion in the Kindle Direct Publishing world and I want people to take advantage of it! (And hopefully leave a review!)

So if you haven’t gotten your copy of Myth yet…grab it now!

The Northwest Book Festival – Portland, OR

image1 (2)

Hello from booth 50!

Last weekend went GREAT at the NW Book Festival! It was a super long day (leaving Eugene at 5 am doesn’t help…) but well worth it! We got there far ahead of our load-in time (by the way, the event was organized super well!)

Hidden under the table….lots of cookies. Lots.

We sold over a dozen books and met dozens of other great authors – mostly indies! It was so fun to speak with my new readers about my books and see their excitement over the story.

I think our table setup worked perfectly, but I learned some great options from other author’s tables for future events. There were a few whispered questions from passerby’s about “What the heck is No Wyverns??” – but hey, it got your attention! 😉

We definitely saw it as a success…and we’ll be back next year!

Updates and the NW Book Fair

It’s been a great week…Myth has been released into the universe and I’m gearing up for tomorrow’s NW Book Festival. If you’re going to be in Portland, come see me at booth 50. Thankfully, the weather will only be in the low 80’s, so I shouldn’t melt into a puddle. (Please bring ice cream just in case.)

A few updates on Myth – both the e-book and the print book are live! Did you catch my interview over at Nya Reads? What a great site, I loved her interview and her readers!

And to celebrate the launch, I’m also running Myth on a promotion with Story Cartel! If you haven’t seen their site before, check it out! By downloading books (for FREE) and leaving reviews on the author’s Amazon/Goodreads account, you get entered in a drawing for awesome prizes. Basically, everyone wins – what’s better than that? It only runs a few weeks and Myth is already in the tops of the popular books!

That’s it from me, I’ll be back next week with an update on the festival. Stay cool out there!
