Re: Shameless Self Promotion Board

My books are in the style of V.C. Andrews, and I'm not sure whether to release them on paperback or not.  Right now, the 4 books are on Kindle.  Do those of you with Novels or short novels receive many paperback sales?  If so, how are you promoting them?

Re: Shameless Self Promotion Board



I released my novel, Ashford, both in print and on Kindle at roughly the same time.  With CS, it really makes sense to release it in print as long as you know you'll sell more than five copies or so, since (if you do the formatting yourself) you only pay the price of the proof copy.  They are automatically available on Amazon, which makes it easy for people to find.  I also have mine on consignment with a local coffee shop, where I held my book launch in November, and a couple other places.  All told, I've sold about equal numbers of paperbacks and Kindle Editions.  In several cases, I've had people who read the book on Kindle first contact me asking for a signed paperback.  I hope this helps.  Cheers!

Re: Shameless Self Promotion Board

Greetings from NJ!


I'm Nathaniel Davis, and I'm promoting book Anomaly that just got released.  Is it a funny book?  I've seen readers laughing.  Is it sad?  They may have cried, too.  Is it for adults or young adults?  Yes.  It is a book without a genre!  Any genre ideas would be appreciated.  It is available in paperback:


or in ebook for $0.99 on smashwords using the coupon code JT97K


Thank you for your time.  I checked out some of the other books out there, and they look interesting.  Good work.

Re: Shameless Self Promotion Board
"The story starts with a visually intense prison riot from the eyes of the main character, B.J, who is leaving California's hardest core prison, Pelican Bay, to enter another violent prison. From there, B.J gets into the politics of prison life as he tries to deal with problems between races and the prison staff and stay alive while searching for a chance to change his life." Jackie Smith U.S.C.


Product Description

The author, Glenn Langohr spent 10 years inside the most violent prisons in California on drug charges. He paints the culture into words and takes you on a journey into the belly of the beast with an authentic look at gang warfare behind bars.


Only for adults...


Inside this story you will find a horrific description of the deadly, 28 minute long blood bath, race war riot at Pelican Bay on a cold Febuary day in 2000...


A California Pelican Bay Prison Story-Volume 1
A penetrating look inside of one California's most dangerous prisons.
B.J, a drug dealer serving time, struggling to hold on to truth and his faith in God, takes the reader on a never before seen, inside look at a California level 4 prison. The inner dynamics between prison guards, gang investigators and the Warden are on display along with the political climate between races with a war brewing between the Mexicans and Blacks. A piercing account of the process for gang validation into solitary confinement at Pelican Bay's SHU through the eyes of inmates struggling to survive gang wars, in prison drug debts, prison politics, rules and regulations, and ultimately power and control, while desperately trying to find a path for redemption along the way.


Next in the series- Lock Up Diaries- Drug Debts to see what happens in prison when dope is involved...


Then Vol 3 Gladiator to see Mexican Mafia hit man Bat in action, while B.J. deals with a potential race war...

Re: Shameless Self Promotion Board

Hi to all and Happy New Year.


I want to invite all of my CS friends and fellow authors to come by and visit the new website I created for my book character.  My book is a children's picture book called "The Adventures of Cefa the Cat."  I have added a shopping page where I can sell my book (s) and other fun items called the "Me and Cefa" line.  I can put a picture of Cefa and anyone else on a T-shirt and/or Tote bag.  I plan on adding more adventure books and items in the future.  Please visit Cefa’s new website, listen to him tell you about it, visit his Fun Shop and become a fan of Cefa’s on Facebook.  Let me know what you think and tell your friends too.  It feels good to pat yourself on the back sometimes, doesn't it??

Re: Shameless Self Promotion Board

Need  a gift for someone special? Why not give a supernatural  adventure that will invoke the imagination.  Young or old, "Second  World" by R.M.Wagoner will bring readers on a fictional journey into a  world where the impossible is the reality. It has been compared to "The  Shack" by William P. Young and "The Final Quest" by Rick Joyner. Now  available on Amazon!
