brazilfroggy books

Posted by froggyman Jan 29, 2018

I am a writer of children books.  I have always been involved with drawing, painting, and illustrations.  I alos was raised in southern Louisiana where I became very familiar with the many characters that appear in my Froggy books.  After much trial and error, along with the encouragement from a few friends and acquaintances I was able to create my first book, entitled "Froggy:  The Beginning."  It is a story about a little frog who was rescued and raised by a kind stranger after a violent flood swept her away from her mom and siblings.  The setting is in an imaginary location in the Manchac, Louisiana area which I named the "Kooterville Swamp."  Her story continues in the books that follow.  Suitable for young children and adults who like to read to their children.  Large print with color illustrations.

Hi, How you All doing?

 

Let me introduce myself to you, I'm a first-time Author, from Manchester England, This is the first ever Blog I've ever done - hope I get it right!  Anyway, I'm a busy Mother of 5 and have written a Series of 'Epic Fantasy Adventure Books' readership age (18+).  I'm shattered, to say the least, have any of you got any suggestions as to possible Marketing avenues I could consider.  I released Part one last month just weeks before Christmas and am looking forward to getting the first money I've earned later this month, after not earning a single penny since 2009. Yes, I'm sure it's been really hard for many of you too, trying to finish up your books and get the visions of your mind out there for all to read. Hope you'll enjoy mine 'AGES OF RAEKWON - Awakenings Arousal the Peoples Story'.  I never anticipated how hard it would be to follow through with the promotion or get people, to take me seriously. The saying              'do not judge a book by its cover', seems to also apply to them looking at me.  So, please tell me how you're finding it all, I'd love to hear your...Stories!

 

Best,

Clio-Mystery

I'm new!!!

Posted by ChelbyT Dec 15, 2017

Good morning!!

 

I just wanted to introduce myself.  My name is Patty, but I use the pen name Chelby Tannon.  I just published my first book "Where In the **** Is Jamestown North Dakota?" in November, and am currently working on the sequel, "Where In the **** Is Roxborough Colorado?"

 

I am learning very quickly that marketing a book is the hardest part of this adventure, and would like some pointers if anyone has anything more to share.  I have advertised on Instagram, Facebook, I have sponsered ads on Amazon, and put myself out there on awesomegang.com and goodreads.com. 

 

I am also learning that no one wants to review your book.  I have begged for reviews from people who have personally contacted me telling me their thoughts about the book.  They all promise, and yet, I only have two.  I get no one thinks about reviewing things that they actually enjoy so I don't harrass anyone but I'm desparate to get more reviews so that not only do I learn from my mistakes, but so that people who click on my book see that more than 2 people read it.

 

Thoughts?

 

Suggestions?

 

I'm wide open to any feedback.

 

Thank you all, I am really enjoying my new found life as a legitimate published author.

The sense of accomplishment is overwhelming to me.  I have raised 4 girls, worked full time, and gone back to college but this first book, is on a level all of its own.  I never want to read it ever again, but I will always protect, cherish, and defend it.  It is mine.

Literary love

Posted by Prancy Oct 16, 2017

Poetry enthusiast since childhood unbeknown to classmates.

Also discovered my instinctual knack for writing jingles.

Explored even the domain of the music industry by also desiring to submit a religious song for the community.

My original childhood desire was in the medical industry as the academic world had found out.

I did not plan to apply it directly immediately for compensation of standard of living for myself and the family.

I spontaneously entered the financial industry to assist in the managerial operations for executives to compensate my abstract desire to learn a broad number of fields which I believed would train me through experience to teach and guide others in many domains of their choosing.

Need feedback

Posted by moonbeam7 Apr 18, 2017

I'm trying to improve my description for my book Unraveled. Would appreciate any and all feedback.

Alyson Pierce believed she was like any other seventeen year old girl. She wasn't. She believed her mother died giving birth, but Alyson was never born. Everything she knew was a lie. Betrayed by her "father", she sets out on a quest to find the truth. Instead, she finds a world where the distinction between right and wrong isn't always clear and the truth she seeks could be deadly.

I'm looking for tips on editing, distribution and marketing. Im doing Amazon Kindle and paperback. I expect release in 60 days or so.

 

I'm also looking for reviewers.

 

Any help is appreciated.

 

Thank you.

Hi wonderful folks,

 

I am relatively new to writing, having penned just two nonfiction books. With my first book, "If life is a game, THEN PLAY TO WIN!!!"I quickly realized that it takes way more than enthusiasm to produce a bestseller.

 

I have just penned my second and I am brimming with jolts of positive energy. It is called "The Fundamental Paradox: The Universe, Science and Religion", it falls into two sub-genres- Science/Philosophy and Religion (Religion and Science). It's available on amazon.com and other online retailers. https://www.amazon.com/Fundamental-Paradox-Universe-Science-Religion/dp/153559215X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1478458119&sr=8-1&keywords=onyeka+uzoma+md

 

I really need marketing tips from more experienced writers, it would be an honor to hear from those who have successfully walked down this pathway.

In the next few weeks I will be publishing my third work of fiction, "Heiding Fortunes, Feinding Truths", A Tale of Two Richards. The novel is dedicated to "Independent Authors Everywhere". This dedication was chosen because I believe the story touches the very soul that motivates many of us to take the time to do what we do.      

 

The work merges two accounts. The first, a Dickensian view of the world of wealth, poverty, inheritance and deception, featuring the life story of Richard Heiding. Its companion tale highlights Richard Feinding in a modern day treatise on the value of honesty, candid expression and truthful communication. The narratives are linked by the evolution of the clandestine enterprise which both men eventually serve.  The message for today; the proliferation of unbiased views that encourage people to think for themselves can elevate society to reach its full potential and make for a better world.      

 

The following is an excerpt in which Richard Feinding defends the value of his life's work: ..."Then of course, as with any message, unless you are just howling into the wind, someone must hear it. Perhaps it is the respect offered the newly deceased that cracks the door to that listening. That tiny window when people discharge their skepticism, allowing a transient passage for ideas to flow unencumbered, free from the harassing gauntlet of opinionated garble that can drown out honest communications. Call it a beachhead. Call it a base camp. It amounts to a miniscule fissure in an intractable boulder of granite. A fracture where a single seed is dropped by a passing winged courier. That seed will grow. Over time the roots will transform the boulder. Look around you James. You are a witness to all the benefit that this practice has brought to the world. Please don't ask me to qualify the value of the result further, by requiring me to find better words to define it."        

 

A few days before publishing, I will share the jacket cover blurb with you. I am hoping to get comments from any and all interest parties.            https://www.amazon.com/author/johnlack

When i write stories I feel like I'm walking with the characters in the books. I am always looking for new opportunities to find a writers job in freelancing or ghost writers. I am also looking for a writers grant to help me with the funds of my books to promote them for the audience to recognize my books. My goal is to have my books transformed into film.

Heading for Home

Posted by howaboutpinhead Oct 6, 2016

This past weekend I took a break from proofreading and attended homecoming weekend at my under-graduate university. This marked the second time in as many years, after a thirty plus year gap in previous attendance at such events.    

 

Before going, I gave myself an objective. My goal was to make it through the entire day without using the word, remember. The intent underlying the target was that each day should be about creating new memories and not just dwelling on the past.    

 

Any realistic assessment of my performance would indicate that I clearly failed in meeting my target. In fact, the objective was missed by a long shot. What I realized is that you can remember the past while still creating new memories to build on. There were people I hadn't seen since graduation, now I would have an updated bookmark from which to gauge the intersection of our life's journeys. Not a faded recollection that was losing its definition with the passage of time.    

 

Dickens wrote in David Copperfield, "It's in vain to recall the past, unless it works some influence upon the present." It is a sentiment that is a major theme in my soon to be available novel, Heiding Fortunes, Feinding Truths. These words never rang truer for me than when they weighed on my present thoughts during the solo ninety-nine-mile drive home.    

 

You can go home again, but I realize it can only be a brief stop on the longer journey we are all taking together.  If you haven't recently returned to a place that was important to you at some time in your life, you might find it is worth the trip. Who knows, it might even give you an idea for your next book.
