So as Halloween’s just around the corner I thought of making a list of some of my absolute favorite books to get you ready for the spookiest day of the year.

Review: Is $.99 the New Free? By Steve Scott

Is $.99 the New Free? By Steve Scott 4.5/5


Do you wonder ANY of the following: Is it better to launch a book for free or $.99? Is there still a benefit to the KDP Select program? When should I move my books to another platform? How do I increase lagging sales?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then it’s important to know “what currently works” with Kindle Publishing.

Review:

I have downloaded many Kindle pricing and promotion advice books from Amazon, and considering this is a freebie, it’s the best I’ve read. Scott provides in-depth content and undertook his own experiments with the pricing on his own books.

A worthwhile read with research and results to back it up.

Review: Kindle Pricing and Promotion by Alex Foster

Kindle Pricing and Promotion by Alex Foster 4/5

Book Pricing and Promotion teaches you how to priceyour books for optimal results. You’ll see data from personal tests in different book categories showing you how to price your book to balance high volume sales, to maintain high page listings, as well as the best profits possible.
The book also looks at my results from popular marketing and promotional sites, both free and paid marketing. Learn how to use marketing and promotion sites for the best possible outcomes and how to correctly publish a new book for improved long term outcomes.

Review:

Pricing your book in a jam packed market is incredibly important, and Foster has tried and tested the various options and shares his statistics in this book.

There is don’t food for thought in this book. Of course, categories and competition factor, but I will be implementing some of the advice in this book and will judge the results for myself.

Review: 5 Minute Marketing for Authors by Barb Asselin

5 Minute Marketing for Authors by Barb Sweep on 4/5

Are you a published author looking to promote your book or books? Are you hoping to publish a book soon and wondering how you are going to promote your new book?

Do you have a “day job” and not enough time to promote your books, even though you want your books to become your “day job”?
If you have books to promote and no time, this book can help.

Review:

This book is great for those starting out on their writing and self publishing journey. It wasn’t what I needed as I’m already aware and implementing most of the ideas suggested, but that doesn’t take anything away from the useful, well compiled content.

The 90 day schedule is a great idea. I will have a go at starting and sticking to my own marketing schedule.

Good Luck CampNaNo Participants

It’s July 1st and CampNaNo has started again. I was hoping to participate this month, but writing and a 7 week old don’t mix. I’ve barely managed 500 words since he was born, but I’m not complaining. He beats writing any day. Besides, he’s only little for the shortest time. I’m not missing him growing because my nose is glued to a screen.

I write when I have the motivation and only once he’s gone to bed for the night. I think CampNaNo is just unnecessary pressure right now.

However, I know lots of my fellow indie authors are taking part this year and I want to wish you all good luck. I’m rooting for you.

Are you participating this month? What target have you set for yourself?

Review: Free Recipe Ebooks

I had been wanting some new and exciting recipes for the summer, so I headed to Amazon. Before spending out money I decided to try some free recipe books which led to a massive downloading spree. So, which did find useful? Read on to find out.

25 Delicious Pasta Recipes by Sallie Stone 3/5

Some interesting pasta combinations that I will use this summer. I’m all for ease and time efficiency. However, recipe books need photos!

Five Ingredient Cookbook by Hannie. P. Scott 2/5

Basic recipes and not all from scratch. Mixing pre-made sauces and canned foods isn’t what I’m after. There are no photos to show the finished results.

30 Minute Meals by Hannie. P. Scott 3/5

Nothing I love more than quick, tasty recipes. These 30 min recipes are varied and achievable for even the most amateur of chefs. I would have liked pictures, though.

Crockpot Recipes by Nancy Kelsey 3/5

A large selection of recipes with something for everyone, but only a handful I want to try for myself.

Definitely worth a scan if you enjoy the simplicity of crock pot cooking.

Summer Cooking by Various Authors 3/5

There were a few unusual recipes that I found interesting and would like to try, but the majority were simple, common recipes most people would know how to create without the need for a recipe guide.

25 Delicious Chicken Recipes by Sallie Stone 2/5

Very simple recipes- not quite what I was looking for. Great for very amateur cooks. I would have liked pictures of the finished dishes.
