Myths of the Mirror

Eight months ago, I started the process of canceling my traditional publishing contracts and re-releasing all my books as an indie author. My reasons for the switch were detailed in two posts Goodbye Traditional, Hello Indie(Part I) and (Part II).

The process went more smoothly than I could have imagined, and I wanted to share the results:

1. I left myself 8 months to convert 6 books. Two months per book would have been easier as I was reproofing as part of the process. The advice: Create a schedule and then give yourself extra time.

2. New covers had an instantaneous sales response. Covers do matter whether traditional or indie publishing.

3. My old reviews ALL carried over to the new books. All I had to do was ask Amazon to combine the old (publisher) and new (indie) editions leaving only the new editions visible. The same phone…

Cruisin’ through books cause books make life worth living with Aly part 4

The Last Day of Captain Lincoln by EXO Books

This book was a little out there for me.  But I think that is why I liked it because it was odd and weird and unusual.  Captain Lincoln is very old and a descendant of last humans of earth but in this book you only live to be 80.  Crazy right?  this book has got a little crazy in it too.  I think it is a hoot and you should check it is out and see what you think.  * I received this book from the author and this is my honest review*  5/5

Call to Valor by Gary Beck

Honestly, I’m not much into books about war but this book was different.  I enjoyed it. This book was about much more than just war.  I enjoyed the ups and downs of the book.  I think the characters were believable to me most of the time.  * I received this book from the author and this is my honest review*  4/5

Unfathomable Chance by K.T. Munson

I really enjoy reading books from this author and this book didn’t disappoint.  I enjoyed the story and the main character, Diana, as well.  I would have ran too but then who knows?  I think the book was a fun and entertaining read for me.  A galactic race to win her heart was just as exciting to me as it sounds.  I love books that can make me laugh a little with the characters too.  * I received this book from the author and this is my honest review*  4/5
