Every hero must take that first courageous step into adventure. For Luke Callindor, it’s more of a blind stumble. From battling a demonic assassin to facing the family he left behind, this warrior’s adventuring career has been one awkward mistake after another.

Swopsies

Head on over to Jo’s place to learn all about her new initiative ‘Swopsies!’

Jo Robinson

I’m going to try out a new idea, and hopefully some of you scribblers will be willing to come on board. The Absolute Indie is not only for self-publishing newbies, but also for Indies who have limited or zero budgets. Proofreading, cover design, formatting for Kindle or CreateSpace or any of the other bits that go into the publishing of a book can be expensive, and although all of these things are covered in the book, not everyone is keen to try. This is where swopsies can come into play. I’ve made a dedicated page for this here, and if any of you would like to participate or have any suggestions for the format that will be fabulous.
I suggest that you say what services you would be interested in swopping, and what services you would swop them for. I reckon you can never have too many proofreaders, so I’ll…

BUTTERFLY CHILD #Book to raise awareness of #Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) #Children…

I just had to share this. Click on the original article to go to Chris’s site and find out all about Ali Pfautz’ campaign to bring the Butterfly Child to life and raise awareness about children with the rare skin disease, Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB). Thanks 🙂

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

Hello Chris and Friends! 

I’d love to take a moment to share a special journey with you.

I am working on my third children’s book, but this one has added meaning.

It’s a story that I hope will raise awareness about a rare skin disease called Epidermolysis Bullosa, or EB.

Children with this devastating condition have very fragile skin that blisters daily.

murrayapril2015-191 (1)

They are known as the butterfly children because their skin is as delicate as a butterfly’s wings.

I’ve written a story, called BUTTERFLY CHILD, to honor the bravery and strength I see in children with EB.

Butterfly Image Scene

Now, I need your help to bring the book to life.

I’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign to get BUTTERFLY CHILD published.

By donating to the campaign supporters can receive different rewards like paperback and hardcover copies, or even get a child’s name written secretly in an illustration.

What is this collection you may ask?  I’ll let the blurb speak for itself:

A speculative fiction selection of micro-fiction and short stories. These were designed to be short reads for your commute, coffee break, and other times when readers are pressed for time. This book contains a bit of science fiction, some fantasy, and paranormal stories.

I’m excited to see short fiction returning in popularity. I hope you will enjoy these stories as much as I did.

More?

Yes, I actually had the privilege to be an early reader and I thoroughly enjoyed these stories.  Each one had a fun twist and the characters were well rounded even for the brief time I knew them.  Personally, I liked the Lisa Burton story the most since it felt like it…

29+ Ways to Market Your Book

A huge thanks to Jacqui for drawing this together and providing us with a way to share and build such a wonderful resource. Read Jacqui’s post to find out how to add your contribution. Thanks 😀

WordDreams...

marketing woahsAt a recent #IWSG confab, I was whining to online friends about the difficulty of marketing my books. I got a long list of great comments, both on the blog and via emails from writers who have approaches that worked well for them.

To share these with you and then continue the conversation, I chose a Google Spreadsheet. If you’re familiar with Excel, it’s quite like that, but easier to share out and collaborate on.

Using this method, we can:

  • read about everyone’s thoughts
  • share ideas by clicking the link and adding contributions to the bottom of the spreadsheet (it’s set to share and edit)
  • repost the spreadsheet to your blog where you collect ideas from your readers. Those will automatically be shared on this same spreadsheet, meaning they’ll appear on my post here (and my readers’ contributions will appear on your blog). If we can repost this to lots of…

D.N.A. Novella Released!

Check out this new release by Alex Hurst. It sounds wonderful. Click on the original link button to learn more.

Memoirs of a Time Here-After

In 2066, superheroes aren’t born; they’re made.

Nanotechnology has helped gene therapy reach new heights, but not everyone is granted access to treatment. Defending the powerless has fallen into the hands of Alta Williams, the only known survivor of a full nanoCell organ transplant and host to the mysterious program D.N.A. Alta, able to change her genetic code at will, can fight those who take advantage of the Non-Generation – but at what cost?

A few days ago, I finally got to release a novella I’ve been waiting to tell you about since April. D.N.A. is a serial novel concept that had been playing around in my mind for well over a year, when it was first released in Heroes & Villains (Writers’ Anarchy III). This edition has further edits, and a handful of beautiful illustrations from multimedia artist Kevin Nichols, who also did the cover art.

I’m super…

The Things We Do For Lust

“Alcmene?”

The spool slipped through my fingers and rolled onto the floor. I skipped over the thread and hurried down the stairs to rush into his arms. “You’re home,” I cried out as I barreled into the room. “I was so worried about you.”

His tall frame stood against the open door, the sun showing off his muscular body. He glanced down at me, his soft brown eyes sparkling. He opened his arms and I jumped into his bear hug. I squeezed against him and kissed him, our lips melting together.

“I told you that I’d be safe, didn’t I?”…
