It seems I've chosen this week to pay my own work some attention. I'm certain you'll indulge me as I do not do this often or as often as I should. The cover for Bullies and Soggy Soup Bones, although cute and proper, quickly ran its course with me. I've grown tired of it more than … Continue reading Bullies and Soggy Soup Bones 2.0
“These are generally hard-hitting stories about a grim future world. . . . I found the exploration mind-stretching . . ." ~Piers Anthony, New York Times Bestselling Author of the Xanth Series “Interspecies is a solid science fiction anthology that provides entertaining reading for a thinking person and sets a high bar. . . . … Continue reading Interspecies, Volume 1, The Inlari Sagas Available Now!
Oh, man, I'm excited. Today I'm revealing the cover for a mini-kosalogy Kōsa Press is releasing in middle July. It's called "These Broken Worlds" and serves as a precursor to "Interspecies", the anthology (or Kosalogy) that Kōsa Press is publishing closer to the end of the year. The idea behind the mini-kosalogy stems from our … Continue reading Kōsa Press Presents: These Broken Worlds Cover Reveal
It is normally chaotic in the mornings here, but this morning progressed into a completely alternate reality. My daughter had a friend sleep over because, you know, it was her birthday yesterday, and Vanesse had to prepare for her trip to Europe, so this morning felt like a star going supernova. Why you ask? My wife is, as … Continue reading Bullies and Seals Discounted!
For those of you who are wondering about sites to advertise your books, author James Calbraith compiled a list of 90 sites you can use. Some are paid, some are unpaid. A lot of them are useful when you’re having a giveaway as they only promote free books. If you have a new book coming out and you want to get new eyeballs on your name and work, use one of your previous books as a temporary (or permanent) loss-leader. A lot of these sites will come in handy for this.
So, if you have wondered about promoting your book, this list should be able to guide you. As far as I am aware, it is the most comprehensive list out there. I could be wrong, of course, but if I am, someone can correct me.
At the very least it’ll provide you with options. It’s good to have options.
As far as I’m aware, this is the most comprehensive list of book promo sites anywhere on the internet. The list was compiled from various online sources, most notably – Rachelle’s Window (go there and thank her! 🙂 she also lists Alexa rankings for the sites) and my own research. As of posting this on August 10th 2014, all the links below are working. Note that I can’t guarantee that the sites themselves are still working, that the forms lead anywhere, or that you will actually get anything for your money.
Majority of these sites advertise books when they’re free, as part of KDP Select or Smashword promo. If you want to promote a paid book, you usually need to pay extra.
If you think I’m missing something, let me know in the comments.
As always, you can express your gratitude by purchasing one of my books 🙂

With Hugh Howey's launch of AuthorEarnings.com and the loud bang that followed, I failed to notice this bit of news: James Patterson and Clive Cussler have formed some kind of merger. The deal will include all rights--film, electronic, and audio. Publishing circles were apparently abuzz with the news (and again, I can't believe I missed … Continue reading Merger stuns world of popular fiction | Lawrence Block
My first entry for 2014 and it's long overdue. I've been so inundated with daddy chores I scarcely had time to complete the editing on the second book. It continues to float in purgatory while being ravaged endlessly by revisions. But there's news. A splinter of light is piercing the dark of the tunnel. Being … Continue reading In Which I Humbly Stand Before You, Hat in Hand…
