Free E-Book on Amazon – Reviews Needed!

On August 1, 2014, I will be using the FREE promotion tool on Amazon for my eBook, “Death of The Fairy King”. I know that I am being incredibly impatient but I would really like to see some reviews coming in! For my non-fiction eBook, I had a built in audience and an email customer list already in place so getting some reviews was not too  hard.

This is my first full length non-fiction book (both printed and in an eBook format) and, as a self-published and  newbie indie author, I truly would like some input, so, if you have the time, please download the eBook, read it, and add a review in Amazon.

Death of The Fairy King” is a mystery/suspense book. Here is the description on Amazon:

Two ten-year-old girls go into the forest near their home one hot summer night but only one child returns, dazed and spattered with her friend’s blood. Jenny has no memory of what happened but in her nightmares, she sees a mythical figure from local lore called the Fairy King. Is the Fairy King just a legend or is he the alter ego of a dangerous psychopathic child killer?

The police are unable to solve the mysterious disappearance of Jenny’s friend and twelve years go by as she tries desperately to get on with her life. No matter how much she tries, the past refuses to let her go and she moves through her day to day existence with an empty space in her heart and mind. A chance encounter with a book about the abduction triggers new nightmares and drags her back to that terrible summer night and her encounter with the Fairy King.
Jenny never completely regains her lost memories but as an adult, she returns to her hometown, hoping her presence will stir up fresh clues in the mysterious disappearance. She vows to find her friend, end her nightmares, and unmask the Fairy King, whatever the cost. Potential witnesses hold the key to solving this case but each one ends up dead, keeping the long buried indiscretions of a small town safe.
Will Jenny solve the mystery in time to save other victims of the Fairy King or is she destined to end up like her friend, gone without a trace?

 

 

If you have an eBook and, if it is in the genre that I like (mystery, suspense, science fiction, horror), let me know!

Why Do You Write?

I recently started writing after many years and I finally figured out why it took me so long! I am something of a perfectionist and believe one of the reasons I stopped writing was because I compared myself with top writers in my field. If you compare yourself with the very best, it’s probably a given that you won’t measure up initially.

I took a step back and gave myself some slack because I am sure that even the best writers needed time to find their own voice and this probably did not happen overnight. In society today, many seek instant gratification but I believe there is something to be said for those who practice their craft, getting better and better as they learn from their  mistakes and from those who have traveled this path before, slogging through rough drafts and studies of correct grammar.

Another encouragement for me is the establishment of self-publishing – I don’t think I would have ventured back into writing without all the options available to publish my own work. It has been lots of fun to experiment with words and search inside for that book just waiting to be written!

Why exactly do you write? Is it to get a handle on your own feelings, exorcise personal demons, or share a vision with others?
