Promote Your Book Here!

I don't have a Blog Ring of Power interview today because the next one won't start until Thursday. In the meantime, since I normally promote other authors on Monday, I thought, "Why not follow the lead of some of the really big blogs and let other authors promote themselves?" So, that's what we'll do today. Feel free to plug your work in the comments below.

A couple of guidelines to prevent this from going nuts: please only post once and only promote one work. (If you have it out at multiple sites, it's OK to post multiple links.) Also, please focus on SF/fantasy works, or those with some speculative element. (This includes paranormal and horror.) Finally, while I can't enforce this, I recommend that if you post here, please take the time to support another author by downloading or purchasing his or her work. Authors need to be readers. I can't promise to sample everyone's work, but I will download any samples I find intriguing. Please be patient with me though; I have such a backlog that it'll take me years to get through everything currently on my Kindle!


Happy reading, everyone! Authors, I hope you all pick up a couple of new fans.

Maybe the next time I'm on a blog tour I'll have to stop here.

And go buy my book A Hero's Journey (Tales of the Scarlet Knight Vol 1). You can find it on Amazon, B&N, and Smashwords. I have links on my site (http://www.ptdilloway.com)

Sandra, this is a GREAT idea. Thank you for inviting everyone to share their links!

My Fantasy Romance is titled: Remedy Maker

Blurb:
Man by day, Centaur by night, Rhycious is a remedy maker who needs his own healing.

He's the royal physician, famous for his cures. War and posttraumatic stress disorder has broken his spirit, preventing him from finding true happiness. Then a direct order from the queen to investigate an uprising forces him out of his secluded cabin at the edge of the forest.

Patience is an optimistic, good-natured Wood Nymph who works as a mediator to ensure harmony within the Nymph sector.

Environmental pollution in the aquifer stream that feeds the taproot tree of her heart is slowly killing her. Resigned to the fact she will not live long, she sets out to discover the mysterious disappearance of her sister. Experience has taught her to deny herself the love of a male, but the gruff Centaur is different. He doesn't push his expectations on her, only his healing nature.

When Rhycious loses his grip on reality, he believes his inability to control his disorder will drive Patience away. Nevertheless, desire flares, and Patience draws him close. Kidnapping and betrayal turn their mythic joint venture into a deadly bout.

Will their love endure when survival hinges on trusting each other?

The Book: "2012:Midnight at Spanish Gardens"

What some reviewers said:
“2012: Midnight at Spanish Gardens is five life stories wrapped around a conversation. The experience of reading it is rather like heading over to the Spanish Gardens, getting an Irish Coffee of your own, and meeting some new best friends.” —Nathaniel Katz, Hat Rack Reviews

“Alexander’s language is poetic and beautiful…Her characters are utterly compelling … I stood in a doorway…flipping page after page…unable to take the steps that would lead to the end of my reading.”
— Alana Jolie Abbott, Flames Rising

Get together a group of friends, and share an End of the World story...

Ooh, what a great idea. Thanks!

My novel, Flow, is contemporary fantasy. Teenaged Kit recruits water-witch Chailyn to hunt for her mother's killer. The pair run afoul of both fairy wrath and the attention of a human organization that hunts the supernatural.

Thanks for this opportunity.

I have a magic realism trilogy The Healer's Shadow and the second book is just out. It's called Love of Shadows .

Blurb

"I had always felt most alive, when I was healing. Without healing I was a tin top spinning out of kilter soon to catch the ground. It took all my energy to hold myself from skidding into chaos."

But in the city of Pharsis traditional women healers are banned from practising and the penalty for breaking the law is death by hanging. After being arrested and interrogated twice Judith is careful to avoid suspicion, but then scarlet fever breaks over the city like a poisonous wave, leaving in its wake the small corpses of children. What will the young healer do?

The book is available on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/dp/B009PCG602

Thanks Zoe Brooks

Hi Sandra,
Nice idea! Mine is YA sci-fi and it's called Fireseed One. Here is a synopsis, followed by some buy links. Thanks! Catherine Stine
What if only your very worst enemy could help you save the world?

Fireseed One, a YA thriller, is set in a near-future earth with soaring heat, toxic waters, tricked-out amphibious vehicles, ice-themed dance clubs and fish that grow up on vines. Eighteen year-old Varik Teitur, inherits a vast sea farm after the mysterious drowning of his marine biologist father. When Marisa Baron, a beautiful and shrewd terrorist, who knows way too much about Varik's father's work, tries to steal seed disks from the world's food bank, Varik is forced to put his dreams of becoming a doctor on hold and venture with her, into a hot zone teeming with treacherous nomads and a Fireseed cult who worships his dead father, in order to search for a magical hybrid plant that may not even exist. Illustrated by the author. Fans of Divergent and Feed will likely enjoy this tale, as well as those readers who like a dash of romance with their page-turners.

Thanks for the opportunity. I am a horror author from Detroit, Michigan, and I would like to promote my novel, "Nightmare of the Dead." First, here is my blog link:

http://vincenzobilof.blogspot.com/

Second, here is my Amazon link:
http://www.amazon.com/Vincenzo-Bilof/e/B005Z62FMU/ref=ntt_athr_dp_pel_1

Finally, the synopsis for "Nightmare of the Dead."

In a world of war and mayhem, a woman awakens on a train without memory or identity and her world becomes a twisted nightmare when she's attacked by fleshless, undead cannibals. After taking the name of the notorious outlaw, Neasa Bannan, she uncovers a horrifying conspiracy engineered by Doctor Saul, the psychopathic mastermind behind the Confederacy's deadly flesh-hungry weapons. A homicidal gunslinger, a jilted lover, and a brotherhood of killers emerge out of Neasa's tragic, blood-soaked past while the living dead ravage the land. With the fate of her identity and self-image in the balance, Neasa must decide: save the Union from the undead menace, or surrender to Saul's vision of ultra-violence.

Thanks, Sandra, for the opprotinity.

My recent novel is a literary/speculative tale set in a dysytopic future. Here is the Amazon link.

http://www.amazon.com/Angel-Of-The-City-ebook/dp/B00B3934O6/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1359045561&sr=1-1&keywords=r+j+leahy

About the novel:

Freedom breeds uncertainty; uncertainty invites chaos.

The last city on Earth is an overcrowded, festering metropolis of segregated quarters and ancient, ethnic hatreds. It is a city on the edge of starvation, slowly succumbing to the creeping death that has choked off the rest of the world.

When the leader of a nascent resistance movement is captured by the government, a nameless, brain-damaged thief is hired to rescue her. It's a suicide mission and he knows it, but it's a job he can't refuse.

And if he can get her out, then what? Where do you go, when there is no place to go? How can you hide in a city tearing itself apart in a wholesale ethnic cleansing? What drives a man to keep fighting, when he knows the terrible truth the future holds? Angel Of The City is a story of hope and survival in a broken world.
