Tips, tricks, and plans

Entertaining Stories

October is bearing down upon us. This has always been my favorite month of the year. I would happily trade January or August for an extra October. It’s also always been my best month for sales. This is probably because I have a few paranormal titles in my catalog.

I plan to hit it hard in October. I have a few guest posts that will appear, and you may find some new blogs to follow at the host sites. I still have time to write a couple more if you know of an October event that I should participate in.

There are also a couple of blog tours via my Story Empire crowd. We’ll be giving away prizes and hope to make a big splash. Follow Story Empire to keep up with what’s going on over there.

I intended to make the tips & tricks part of this into a…

It is stupid o’clock and I can’t sleep. The throat still feels like I’m swallowing red-hot golf balls and my ears as if they have been skewered. After ten days, it should have cleared. So much for the early night. In spite of the chill of autumn, I have already thrown off the covers in my sleep, so I decide to give it up as a bad job and get up. Maybe a hot drink and some painkillers will help…

The world is silent and sleeping and, with my back to the darkened house, all I can see is the dark expanse of the fields… no lights, no sign of…

9 Things That Cost Your Book 5 Stars – Guest Blog Post By An Amazon Top Reviewer

Dan Alatorre - AUTHOR

head shot your humble host

Meerkat agreed to do a follow up post about stuff we writer types can do to avoid getting a less than stellar review from a reviewer.

Here are some of the top pet peeves. (Emphasis added by me)


There are lots of reasons why I love a book and I usually see something great in all books even if they’re not my favourite genres, but there are definite reasons why I don’t like a book and if these crop up, it feels as if the book still needs editing – and it’s hard for me to give it 5 stars.

1 – Spelling errors, grammar errors, typos, etc.

I know these are perhaps the least important for some people to check and I don’t mind the very odd typo (I’m guilty of them myself) but if every page of a book has typos and…

Quote of the week!

Real Tasty Pages

​I’ve been feeling very emotional lately. I’m not 100% what’s bringing it on. Or maybe I do but don’t want to admit it to myself or anyone else for that matter. So I’m really trying hard to go by my quote this week.

‘Don’t let yesterday take up to much of today”

It proves to be a difficult one for me at the moment. I find myself worrying about the smallest of things. Then getting angry with myself for having these feelings. I really need to find a way to get over things and try not to sweat the small stuff.
