We Interrupt This Broadcast…

Posted on by Grace

I’m taking a brief break from my alphabet series to mention Katie Lynn Daniels‘ pet project this month, the Speculative Fiction Thing over at the HolyWorlds Blog. Every day a new post goes up about fantasy, science fiction, or historical fiction, written by various talented members of the HolyWorlds forum.

I myself am doing two posts this month, and one of them went up this week. What was it about? Fantasy Subgenres. I tend to dislike a lot of fantasy, so it’s a bit surprising that I offered to do this post, but Katie needed more posts, and I’d given … Keep reading

Too Many Murders

Posted on by Grace

I’m a very big fan of detective and mystery stories. I always have been. From Encyclopedia Brown when I was seven, to Nancy Drew when I was twelve, from Sherlock Holmes in my teens, to Agatha Christie as an adult–I love a good whodunnit. I also enjoy mystery TV shows–Monk, Psych, Murder, She Wrote… if it’s clever and mysterious and more or less clean, I like it.

It’s my dream to, someday, when I’m rich and famous, hold a contest where everyone who enters will indeed receive a book… but alas, that day has not yet come. Although perhaps with all of your reviews, I’m one step closer to that day!

In all seriousness, I am truly grateful for … Keep reading

Four Delightful Prizes

Posted on by Grace

If you’ve been sticking around this blog for awhile, you probably saw my review contest and giveaway a couple weeks back. Basically, if you are willing to review my books, I’ll send you copies. And if you get your reviews in by March 15th, you’re entered in a giveaway for four very wonderful prizes.

As an author, I’m privileged to have many talented authors as my friends. It’s so helpful to be able to go on this journey together–learn the ins and outs of self-publishing, encourage each other, and read each other’s books. Sometimes I think that is the best … Keep reading

Can You Help Me?

Posted on by Grace

Greetings, dear readers! I know I haven’t posted too much lately, but I’ve been busy cooking up this idea and getting it all set up for you.

I have a job for you. Yes, you. If you’re willing to help me out, and have a bit of time, and are interested in free books, then you’re just the person I’ve been looking for.

What do I need? Well, when your marketing budget is rather on the nonexistent side, one of the biggest strategies to go for is word of mouth. But for word of mouth to work, you have to … Keep reading
