*August 2017 Results!*

*August 2017 Results!*

Hello there! For anyone that is interested in my August results since my post on how I was making more of a marketing effort, I have some numbers! Technically I should wait until tomorrow but the change in books sold and $ amount will be miniscule and I wanted to look at the numbers today. First, let’s look at June and July. I blot out $$ amounts but you can figure it out if you’re good at maffs. What’s important to me is # of books sold and pages read. 30/98K in June and 29/59K in July. Not stellar, by my own personal standards. An average of $5 to $15 […]



Let’s talk Book Marketing!

Let’s talk Book Marketing!

I know, this is your favorite topic, right? Right after writer’s block and right before the discussion about whether romances have to have a happy ending. But seriously. Let’s talk about it. “Millions of people want to read your book.” -Chris Fox  I have been publishing since 2015, stumbling through most of it like a newborn deer, making an okay chunk of money here and there but for the most part, coasting along and making pizza money. You know, that deposit from Amazon that could cover a nice large pie and maybe some garlic knots from your fave pizza joint. I kind of got sick of working so hard for […]

Leslie’s Curl & Dye – “Not all my crazy is on display.”

Leslie’s Curl & Dye – “Not all my crazy is on display.”

by DL White Genres: African American Romance, Small town romance Now available in print and ebook at Amazon.com!  http://books2read.com/curldye  KC Tamera untied her client’s cape and removed it, then hung it on a hook near her chair. A middle aged woman with a short salt and pepper afro stood and handed Tamera a few bills, telling her to keep the change. “Thank you, Ms. Jackie. See you next week?” The woman nodded and walked out of the shop, smiling as she passed me. Tamera used a towel to wipe down her chair, then tapped the back of it. “KC, come on over here. I’ve been staring at your hairline all […]



*EXCITE!!! * Cover Reveal: The Truth of Things by Tasha L. Harrison

*EXCITE!!! * Cover Reveal: The Truth of Things by Tasha L. Harrison

From the author of THE LUST DIARIES, a new novel set to release on September 5, 2017

“Where I come from, cops aren’t super heroes.”

Photojournalist and wedding photographer, Ava Marie Greene, doesn’t ever want to fall in love and not in the I-just-haven’t-met-right-man kinda way either. Ava is a hopeless romantic, but too much hurt and disappointment has her hiding behind the camera. Through her lens, she sees the truth of things, the difference between real and fantasy, and she thinks she has a good handle on it until she has a run-in with her friendly neighborhood policeman, Levi Raymond.

“Where I come from, cops aren’t super heroes.”

Photojournalist and wedding photographer, Ava Marie Greene, doesn’t ever want to fall in love and not in the I-just-haven’t-met-right-man kinda way either. Ava is a hopeless romantic, but too much hurt and disappointment has her hiding behind the camera. Through her lens, she sees the truth of things, the difference between real and fantasy, and she thinks she has a good handle on it until she has a run-in with her friendly neighborhood policeman, Levi Raymond.

“Not all cops…”

A tad arrogant, and a bit of a cornball, Ava knows that this Levi could make her second-guess every thought she ever had about cops. She tries to make it clear to Officer Friendly that she doesn’t need saving, but he when Ava finds herself on the wrong side of the law, will he be the hero she needs or toe the “thin blue line?”
