Aurora J. Alexander is launching Demon Tracker, the third book in her Council of Twelve series.

Demon Tracker

Zepheira is the best Demon Tracker working for the Good side. With her unusual looks, her phenomenal sense of smell, and her bravery, she quickly draws ‘The Big 7’s attention to her talent. They hire her to find one of them. Leaving her familiar surroundings and regular work environment unsettles Zepheira at first. But the challenge to prove herself and to increase the reputation of her infallibility tempts her.

She is convinced she will be a great asset to ‘The Big 7’. Little does she know she will be a much greater asset in Heaven’s fight against Evil. Zepheira suddenly becomes more than a hired tracker. She finds herself an important pawn in the game of love, heat, and fire. Will her courage and sacrifice be sufficient to dance with the flames?

Book Excerpt

Less than twenty minutes later, I received a message from Michael. I was strictly ordered not to do anything but stay where I was. Andreas would pick me up a little later. In the meantime, I could work out in the gardens with some of the angels if I wanted to.

Infographic: Selling your Business with Ebooks – Written By Nicholas Rossis

Nicolas Rossis informs us on his blog on how to sell our business with ebooks. He posted an infographic that is simple and self-explanatory and very, VERY useful! Thank you, Nicholas!


 

Did you know that a great way to promote a business is through an ebook?

As regular readers of this blog know, I have been focusing on freelance writing this past couple of years. So, this is a tip that may be of particular interest to non-fiction writers and anyone else who is looking to make a living through their writing.

Good content has become the brute force that drives a majority of the marketing strategies on the internet today.

Indeed, that is why writers are as popular as ever – it is a golden era for content marketing (although things are still hard for fiction writers). Whether it is explainer videos, blog posts, or infographics, every form of online marketing requires high-quality content that attracts more clicks and revenue.

The Evolution of Blogging – Written By Nicholas Rossis

Nicholas C. Rossis informs us in his latest blog post about the evolution of blogging and what and how it had developed since he joined the great group of bloggers, a long, long time ago! Thanks so much for sharing your experience with us, Nicholas!


I have been online since 1985. I was one of the first members of the BBS (Bulletin Board) scene in Greece back when we connected to a server using landline modems. I still remember my thrill when I finally got my hands on a 9600 bps modem and could download pictures as well as texts.

In 1995, I developed my first website. Even then, I had identified a need for regularly updated content. While some pages were meant to be static, there were news and events to share. Web developers usually met this need by introducing a News page and placing there any related items. As the new millennium approached, we started placing some of these on the home page, too.

Out of these News pages came blogging. Nowadays, 25 years after I developed my first website, most of my living comes through freelance writing for company blogs.

What did Medieval People Really Wear? – Written By Nicholas Rossis

Nicholas Rossis provided us with a very interesting and highly educating blog post about medieval wardrobe – reality vs. Hollywood. Even though I called the article educating and interesting, which it is – I still think Nicholas just ruined my day. (Just kidding!)


Contrary to popular belief, people in the Middle Ages loved color – and could afford it. They also liked to be, well, naked. Which makes sense, considering how much Medieval people liked throwing rotten vegetables at each other.

Some people take the term “Dark Ages” a little too literally. There is a notion in popular culture that the Medieval Period was a time when everyone lived in absolute poverty, wore clothes that looked like they were sewn together by a 6-year-old, and bathed zero times during their entire lives. The dark-filtered movies and shows depicting the Medieval period are supposed to symbolically reflect how bleak everyone’s life was.

Free Short Story: Everyone Deserves A Second Chance – Written By Nicholas C. Rossis

Today I discovered a free short story on Nicholas Rossi’s blog. I was fascinated and loved it enormously. I, therefore, hope he’ll permit me to show you a very small part of it – and link you to his page. Enjoy the read.


Waters of Oblivion

While I wait for you, I take in the beach. This is my home. The deep, calm sea—too dark to make out anything but the soothing waves that lap my feet. Dark silhouettes surround me. They would crowd the beach, were it not for its immensity. Old and young, men and women, take slow, dazed steps into the abysmal waters. Guides like me help them in. Not that you need us for this. Ancient, forgotten instincts would drive you forward even if we weren’t there. But we pride ourselves in that special, personal touch.

Smaller, translucent silhouettes come out of the sea, too, like baby turtles going the wrong way. Other guides are there to take them to their new homes. You will be following them in no time.

And now you’re finally here. When I left you at your bedroom after you had swallowed all those pills, I was wondering how long it would take you to join me. Not that time matters. Not here, anyway.

You shudder after the unpleasant experience of going through the death portal. “What… what happened?” you ask.

“You got what you wanted,” I say. “Congratulations. You’re dead.”

Top Tips for Marketing Your Book for the Holiday Season – Written By Ronita Mohan – On Nicholas Rossis’ Blog

Thank you very much, Ronita, for a blog post full of marketing ideas for the Holiday season!


The holiday season isn’t just about snow and families and giving gifts—it’s also a great time for marketing your book.

We have some top tips for holiday book marketing—including what to post on social media and include in newsletters—so you can improve book sales and reach customers well into 2020.

Season’s Greetings

How are your fans and audience going to know that you are participating in the holiday season? A simple gesture is all it takes—share season’s greetings on your marketing channels.

This means sending out a holiday-themed post on your social media and sending a holiday email.

But you can go beyond that. Why not also design holiday cards—with card templates—that fans can send to their families?

You can use imagery from your books or, if you prefer, something simple: you in a festive hat, or your books with festive bows tied around them.

Sharing best wishes for the season is a simple way to remind people that you and your books are just what they need to make their holiday season.

The Horrific History of St. Albans Bible – Written By Nicholas Rossis

Nicholas Rossis introduces us to the history of the St. Albans Bible which I found fascinating. Thanks so much for that post, Nicholas. I just HAD to share it.


You may remember Erik Kwakkel or Leiden University from earlier posts like A Fantasy Tip From History: Medieval Spam. Erik recently shared the incredible history of St. Albans Bible. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

A Horror Story

In 1964, the New York rare book dealer Philip Duschnes (d. 1970) bought and subsequently broke a splendid medieval Bible produced in early-fourteenth-century Paris.

Emotional Beats Wins Second Award – Written By Nicholas Rossis

Congratulations Nicholas Rossis! Your book won two awards, this is amazing! I dream one day my books are going to be where yours are!


I was just notified that my emotional thesaurus book, Emotional Beats: How to Easily Convert your Writing into Palpable Feelings, has been selected as a FINALIST in the TopShelf Book Awards!

Emotional Beats: How to Easily Convert your Writing into Palpable Feelings

 

 

 

 

Emotional Beats is an award-winning finalist in the 2019 TopShelf Indie Book Awards

Because of the way our brains are wired, readers empathize more strongly if you don’t name the emotion you are trying to describe. As soon as you name an emotion, readers go into thinking mode. And when they think about an emotion, they distance themselves from feeling it.

A great way to show anger, fear, indifference, and the whole range of emotions that characterize the human experience, is through beats. These action snippets that pepper dialogue can help describe a wide range of emotions, while avoiding lazy writing. The power of beats lies…
