21 Questions to attract more interest to your book description
If you have ever played the 21 questions game, you’ll know that people really can open up when they answer the questions you ask.
Interesting questions make people think, funny questions make people laugh, and a good question demands a logical answer.
By playing this game, you learn how powerful a great question can be.
There is a natural, almost irresistible, attraction to answering a list of questions.
But have you thought about using the power of questions in your book description to help you sell more books?
Author Janny C asked me to please support her Angelic Confessions Reboot! kickstarter campaign. I decided to re-blog her own post to make it easy for you to hop over to her blog and support her actively.
IT HAS BEGUN! ( and I am terrified!)
Yes, Authors can be terrified. As I mentioned back in Meira’s Prince Book Release event Angelic Confessions is in the hopes of getting a reboot.
Back in 2013, I published my labor of love Angelic Confessions. It did well but could have done a lot better if I have not given up on it. Instead, I was helping other people promote their books, but never did I do my own. I did not mind though as helping others brought me so much joy. My husband says I never listen to him as he always complained I was helping others, but here I had this great book out there that no one really knows about. As much as I would love to promote my book I was always to busy still helping others gain exposure. I then remembered my husband’s words(see I do…

Author Joan Reeves provides us with a phenomenal idea on her blog: different, surprising and extraordinary uses for business cards. Thanks so much for this post, Joan!
I still carry business cards. Do you?
Actually, I carry several cards that are standard business-card size, that is, 3.5 inches” x 2 inches.
Only 1 of these cards I carry is a traditional business card. That’s it to the left. On the reverse side of it, I have my website and blog links.
If you’re wondering why an author should carry business cards, this post is for you.
I order my cards from Vista Print because they offer quality card stock, they’re inexpensive, and I can upload my own design or use one of theirs. The card above is an old one, and it uses one of their stock designs.
If you want something even more affordable, print your own with Avery Clean Edge Business Card.
Just be sure you get the correct ones for your printer. Also, keep it simple if you’re not skilled at graphic design.

On The Story Reading Ape’s blog, I found an excellent post, taking me to a phenomenal page, ‘Writing Explained’. TSRA recommends us to bookmark that page – and I did! Thank you very much for all the great findings and your hard work to support us authors!
Let’s face it, English can be a confusing language at times. There are hundreds of confusing words in English: words that are separated by just one or two letters or words that sound exactly alike when you say them out loud but have completely different meanings.
That is why I have created this list of commonly confused words with detailed explanations on all of their uses and differences. I have done my best to make my explanations in everyday English so that anyone and everyone reading these posts will be able to easily understand.
Author Don Massenzio asks us where our ideas come from. Let’s read what he has to say about this subject. Thank you very much for all your hard blogging work for us, Don!
As I look at my writing notebook (you should consider carrying one), I see the dozens of story, setting and character ideas that I have collected and I’m both inspired and anxious.
There are many ideas that I want to turn into stories. It’s hard to write one at a time. At any given time I have a book and some kind of serial or short story going at the same time. This is tough with a 50-hour per week day job and 45 weeks of travel per year, but I somehow manage to squeeze in some writing.
As I looked at these ideas, I began thinking about where the ideas that I’ve recorded come from. I thought that telling you some of my sources might help you look at some idea generation possibilities you might not have thought of.
