MG/YA:

  1. http://www.fromthemixedupfiles.com/2018/04/cover-reveal/ Last year was the first time I ever did a cover reveal. I posted about my middle grade Pumpkin Spice Secrets on my own blog and then advertised the post via social media. It felt a little weird, since I assumed that you needed to be a big name author in order to generate interest. And the truth is that, while it didn’t generate a social media storm, I did get some nice feedback on Facebook and Twitter and lots of comments on my blog! My publisher, Sky Pony, also diligently retweeted.

The first book was published in 1872 and is set in the fictional town of Burnet, a small town in mid-Western America. Katy’s father is a busy doctor and her mother died shortly after the birth of her youngest sibling so the children are primarily looked after by their Aunt Izzie.”

  1. https://teripolen.com/2018/04/06/the-writers-reading-corner-michael-reed-indieauthor-humor-satire/ At the center of this intricate tale of urban angst is narrator Hash O’Connell, who as an intern in a trash pickup program discovers a box of old 5¼ floppy disks at the home of a recently deceased Pulitzer Prize winning reporter Levon Gallagher. As Hash reads the disks’ content intermittantly throughout the book, he learns not only about past technologies, but also about Gallagher’s link to his family. The result leaves him a changed person. There are other secrets to be found as well, but I think it’s best to leave discovering the rest to new readers.
