I am currently promoting a new release!

 

My newest book is a non-fiction self-help book for authors. I created the book based on lessons I learned about creating an effective book-marketing plan.

The book is Publish Promote Repeat: Preparing to Launch Your Book Workbook.

Promotion is a process. There is no magic formula for selling books. Hard work and dedication are required to create, publish, and market a masterpiece.
This workbook guides you through a three-phased process of bringing your book to a broader audience. Following the steps outlined in this workbook will streamline your prepublication, publication, and post publication marketing process, delivering to you the potential to not only achieve, but maintain, an improved ranking in the sales market.

Indies who are looking for an editor: DO YOUR RESEARCH. PLEASE.

Great post, Kayla. Kelly edits my work as well, and I have a selfish urge to keep her all to myself. It’s difficult to find a talented and competent editor. But in all good conscience, she deserves the promotion.

Kayla Howarth

There has been an increasing worry that I’ve been witnessing over the last few months. I’ve been contacted by a few people offering editing services. As someone who has been screwed over a lot in the past, I’m wary. But I realised today that there are so many new authors out there, and any of them could fall for the bullshit lines these people are trying to sell me.

You know that old saying, those who can’t do, teach? What does an author do when their books aren’t selling? I swear a lot of them these days are waking up and saying “I think I’ll be an editor today.”

Now, I’d love to be paid to read other people’s books and help them out. But there’s one thing I recognise that most of these other authors don’t. And that is I’M NOT QUALIFIED TO BE AN EDITOR.

Earthbound Promo May 5 to 9, 2017

Earthbound

Earthbound

The Experiencers prequel, Earthbound, is available for #FREE on Amazon from May 5 to May 9, 2017.

Jayden McQeen struggles to figure out what happened when she finds herself outside her body. Once declared dead, she watches her family plan her funeral and struggles to come to terms with her passing.

Though told she must cross over to the spirit realm, Jayden disregards the advice when she uncovers the truth behind her sudden death and risks becoming earthbound.

Who is the strange man she sees in the hospital’s waiting room who seems too interested in her condition? What do her coworkers know about her death? Who is the mysterious spirit who claims he wants to help her?

Written by an author with a master’s degree in parapsychology, Earthbound is riveting speculative fiction that will hold your interest and keep your nights sleepless until you reach the startling conclusion. A compelling introduction to The Valiant Chronicles series, it delves into metaphysical concepts that question beliefs and reality.

Available on all Amazon sites, including US, UK, and CA.
