Don’t Make This Mistake and Lose Purchasers/Readers


I spend more time on Amazon and other retailer sites than the average Joe. In spending so much time searching for books, doing research, searching out books, keeping track of client’s ranking. WHile I have been spending so much time on the retail sites something has really bugged me…

Authors — QUIT Doing This! #PubTip #EBBA (via http://www.e-bookbuilders.com)

Over the past few months I have been kicking the idea around of putting a book together with the information and tips I have geared towards newbie authors. While going through all the information that I have accumulated in posts from the past 2 years I realized I would be remiss if I do not address something that I have noticed with increasing frequency the last month or two while I have been on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other retailers.…

Review – The Kingmaker’s Daughter Audiobook


The Kingmaker’s Daughter – Audiobook #EBBB #Review (via http://www.e-bookbuilders.com)

The Kingmaker’s Daughter by Phillipa Gregory December 9th – 11th brought yet another mad-dash, across-the-state road trip to my schedule and yet another opportunity to spend multiple hours in the car listening to an audiobook. I might have forgotten to pack my brush and face-powder (not good considering this trip was for a court appearance) but I did not forget an audiobook to take me away from the boring monotony of 24 hours of windshield time. For this trip I choose ‘The Kingmaker’s Daughter’ by Philippa Gregory – book 4 of the Cousin’s War series. (Yes, last trip I listened to The White Queen and thought it was wonderful – my review is on the site.)

Part of this novel’s time-frame overlap with The White Queen, told from another perspective and to be quite honest, I thought Anne – the main character – and all of her family were whiners because I was still mentally in the mindset of Elizabeth from the previous story. It took almost half of the audiobook for me to drop my own attitude that had me muttering to myself that the Nevilles of the story were traitors and liars and actually experience the story from their point of view without the Woodville‘s point of view intruding…
