First things first… Grey actually has feelings, Which are shown continuously throughout the book. It was obviously very similar to Fifty Shades of Grey, seen as it’s the same book from a different point of view!

The 4th installment answered alot of questions, everyone was dying know! Such as Christian really works! This installment offers readers to get truly invested into the characters lives and understand them more.

Lucky E.L.James’ writing has developed over the past few years, as her development is clear throughout the book. Her writing style has certainly improved.

I’d rate this book 4 stars, as it’s well written and offers greater insight into Christians life, which all us nosey people love! I definitely recommend Grey!

Happy reading :-)

Netflix Vortex of Doom…and a lil something extra

Originally posted on Zoe Ambler - Author:

So, I am always getting sucked into the Netflix Vortex of Doom. I am one of those people who dont just watch an episode of something…or even a single season of something, unless thats all thats available….nnnooo…I am not satisfied until I’ve seen all the things.

I’ve never brought it up before, and its only for the Chrome browser users I think…I use Chrome pretty exclusively. Anyway, I found a LOVELY extension for the Chrome browser like, went the extention first became available. What is does, is it unlocks OTHER countries Netflix regions. What is so exciting about that? Netflix is Netflix. Oh, no, my lovely dearies. Netflix in other countries carries different movies, newer movies and series, and things removed from the good old Netflix you are used to watching.

The extension is called Hola!.

Hola-Logo

It’s a wonderful thing. I’ve been watching Argentina’s Netflix all day.

The best countries…

Bookbub Insights: 9 Ways to Market your Book

Originally posted on Nicholas C. Rossis:

From the blog of Nicholas C. Rossis, author of science fiction, the Pearseus epic fantasy series and children's booksAfter focusing on both stand-alone releases and books that are part of a series, this last post in my Bookbub Insights series suggests nine different ways to promote any book. Some of these you may be familiar with; others will probably be news to you.

The post is based on an excellent recent post by Diana Urban, titled How to Market Your Book After the New Release Buzz Dies Down.

1. Use discounting to hook new readers

Use a backlist book to hook new readers. Readers are more inclined to try a book or author they’ve never heard of if it’s offered at a bargain price or free. However, they’re less likely to risk spending full-price before they’re a fan of an author’s work. Sixty percent of bargain readers purchase other books from an author they discovered through a price promotion, so after they buy a discounted backlist title they’ll often be willing to buy…

Honoring Fat Cat

May she rest in piece and be as pampered in Kitty Heaven as she was here.

So, today I mustered up a bit of strength to deal with commemorating ChesterAnn. I had gotten some various sized pictures printed out of her right after her death, because I wasnt sure if we were going to get an urn that accomodated a picture or not. Of course, I found and fell in love with the cat shaped white marbled urn.

So, I finally sat down on the floor with all these pictures and frames. I started the project and pretty much started blubbering and snotting. Then I blubbered and snotted more because I bought a few wrong sized frames and I felt I NEEDED to get this project done. So, I calmed myself, waited for the redness to leave my face, and went to the store for the appropriate sized frames that I needed.

I got home and went to work.

Then came the really hard part.

Bustin’ a Nut

Originally posted on Storytime with John:

Forgive me for venting, but don’t you think nuts get unfairly branded negatively just about everywhere you turn? I’m not sure who decided on the marketing decision to use nuts as a frame of reference for just about everything that isn’t wonderful in the world…but whoever it was has totally ruined the good nut name for generations since, and I for one think it’s not right.

This is how much it upsets me (approximately).

Everywhere a nut dares to venture in the world it has to face horrendous stereotypes…typecast automatically before anyone can even get to know it. That’s largely because the n word has been stretched and contorted out of all reality, and transformed into something that it doesn’t resemble at all…here are just a few unfortunate but all too real examples:

That guy licking his dog’s leash looks like a nutter – let’s cross the road.”

Bookbub Insights: Launch a New Book that’s Part of a Series

Originally posted on Nicholas C. Rossis:

From the blog of Nicholas C. Rossis, author of science fiction, the Pearseus epic fantasy series and children's booksContinuing my Bookbub-inspired series of book marketing posts, I will now address the question of promoting a new book that’s part of a series.

Series novels let you reach new readers who still haven’t discovered your books yet. Hook readers on one book, and chances are they’ll be begging for more. But how do you find new readers in the first place?

Cheryl Bradshaw has the answer, courtesy of Bookbub.

One to Two Months Prior to Release

1. Redesign platform elements. A couple of months before your book release, kick things off by posting a new banner on your Facebook page, blog, and other relevant sites. It should include the book cover reveal, the release date (if known), and language such as “coming soon” so readers know to stay tuned.

2. Hint about the upcoming release. Whenever you can, sneak in comments on your blog and  pages about the book and how the…
