Sneak Peek: Believing Again – A Tale of Two Christmases

Today we have a sneak peek from the holiday romance by Martin Crosbie: Believing Again – A Tale of Two Christmases.

Two weeks before Christmas, Becky gets what she always wanted. James proposes and promises that they’ll have lots of Christmases together.

When Stephen returns home after serving overseas all he wants is to spend Christmas with his new wife, Myra. All he can think about is her touch, her warmth.

A compelling story of two couples, traveling separate paths, building their lives together, until one day a secret is revealed that changes all of their lives.

And, afterward, nothing will ever be the same again.

A heart-warming tale of love, commitment, family, and, of course, Christmas.

Believing Again – A Tale of Two Christmases is available from Amazon and Amazon UK.

Here is an excerpt from Believing Again – A Tale of Two Christmases

Creative Marketing Ideas

Melissa Pearl - Dec AdMarketing doesn’t have to suck. It can be interesting and fun.

I don’t know many authors who love marketing. I, for one, would rather spend my time writing and editing. I wish the books would just market themselves. Unfortunately they don’t and this year I decided to have an attitude check and come at marketing from a different angle.

Now, before I launch into this post, I just want to share that my best marketing strategy so far has been to make the first book in my series FREE and then run a Bookbub ad. I have two full-length novel trilogies and I have used this strategy for both of them. It’s paid off big time and given my rankings an awesome boost, therefore giving me that extra exposure that’s so vitally important. Continue reading “Creative Marketing Ideas”

Happy Holidays from Indies Unlimited

An Indie Holiday Song

People reading on a Kindle Fire
Nook or Sony or Kobo
Indie books being read and admired
We hope our author rankings grow

Everybody knows some interviews and book promos
Help to make the backlist move
Book reviews with their stars all aglow
Might convince some readers to approve

They know that clock is ticking down
When that Kindle Countdown’s over, they will frown
And every author is gonna sigh
Because Amazon drones don’t really fly

And so we’ve parodied this simple song
For writers whether old or new
Although it’s been said many times
Many ways, happy holidays to you

We at indies Unlimited wish you a safe and happy holiday season. May 2014 be your best year yet. Keep writing!
