(Two are in the picture so you can see both sides.)

SatA Prize 1

And since I’m feeling generous, I’m giving away 20 additional wristbands. 1 per winner.

Top Ten Things Not to Do If Your Book Gets a Negative Review

Posted on Updated on

I added my own advice as a reader who pays close attention to ALL reviews, and is a member of several Street Teams.  Do not send your Street Team to harass ANY reviewer, “dislike” or “vote down,” and/or leave “helpful comments” for the reviewer. Do not post an angry rant on your Facebook page or blog, decrying negative reviews. Say nothing. Do nothing. It all reflects back on the author and her/his good/poor judgment.

Here is the 36th installment of Ten Top Lists of What Not to Do by Marie Ann Bailey of 1WriteWay at http://1writeway.com and John W. Howell of Fiction Favorites at http://johnwhowell.com. These lists are simu-published on our blogs each Monday. We hope you enjoy.

10.  If your book gets a negative review, do not read the review, especially if the rating is one star.  At best, the reviewer will admit the review is based on having read only a couple of pages of your book and you can chide yourself for even bothering to read one word of the review.  At worst, you will read the review so many times  you can quote it by heart, begin to believe it, and eventually get one star tattooed on your back to atone for imagined errors in your career choice.

9.  If your book gets a negative review, do not respond…

Widower and Air Force reservist, Tom Ryan fills the empty spaces in his life by building dream homes for others. When he’s invited to a client’s party, he meets the owner’s sister-in-law, a tempestuous artist, and discovers that maybe there is a wrong time to meet the right person…

Free-spirited Emily Sanchez is known for pushing the envelope in art, but meeting dependable, and down-to-earth Tom challenges her. The man has submissive written all over him, and she thinks she might be just the woman to peel back the layers and release the brilliant passion inside.

But when they are paired by Madame Eve, Tom turns the tables on Emily, because he’s always been curious about the lifestyle and if the chaotic artist is willing to surrender, they may discover their deepest desire…

Purchase Hanging by a Moment on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or BookStrand.

Why Shakespeare Should Quit Writing

Posted on Updated on

Fight the power, Sarah. The menace of Shakespeare MUST be stopped. I shall join your cause, but only if there are cute t-shirts and shoes.

I read the, now infamous, Huffington Post article criticizing J.K. Rowling and a few thoughts came to mind, “girl, listen to your friend next time,” “oh, THAT’S going to leave a mark,” and “just say no to drunk blogging, people.”

Karma sandwich. It’s what’s for dinner.

To read the article that inspired Sarah’s glorious rant, click here: If JK Rowling Cares About Writing, She Should Stop Doing It.  The title alone is a doozy – a call to arms, if you will.  Strap on your bullet-proof snark vest and kiss your writing career goodbye, Toots.

Sinners at the Altar Available for Pre-Order on Amazon!

Posted on Updated on

Olivia is the Queen Mother of rocker erotic romances. She is second-to-none and her “Sinners” series knocks all other “rock star” stories out of the park. She uses her behind-the-scenes knowledge of the music industry to create a realistic, sometimes depraved, but always entertaining world for her characters. Highly recommended!
