IT’S FINALLY LIVE !!!

Leave a comment

Sunday morning, I woke to find the revised KINDLE version of “I Kissed a Ghost” live on Amazon. While this might sound wonderful, the revised paper is listed separately with the old version of the KINDLE. And it wasn’t until today that both the revised paperback and KINDLE editions are finally together.

Give the young girl in your family a sweet YA paranormal romance novel for Halloween https://www.amazon.com/dp/B076Y77RHD
If anyone does interviews on their sites, I’d love to be interviewed by you regarding myself and all of my writing endeavors. I would greatly appreciate any and all support anyone can give me at this time.

Decisions. Decisions. Decisions.

With the KINDLE version for the revised edition of my debut romance novel “I Kissed a Ghost” about to become available I had to decide where I should turn to next in regards to my romance writing. To begin it doesn’t really matter since I don’t have any funds available to move beyond the original writing phase for any of my endeavors. While my PROOF copy of this book took only 5 days for it to be printed and me to receive it; the 5 copies I ordered 9 days ago on Oct 17th have finally been shipped, and hopefully I’ll received them by the weekend.

Both my sweet side, Robin Leigh Morgan, and my erotic side, Kathryn Heart, both have two endeavors being worked on. I’ve got an adult Contemporary romance novel endeavor entitled “His Darkest Secret”; and a MG/YA Urban Fantasy novella with a back story of romance, entitled “The Secret of the Well,” which is also a stand-alone sequel to “I Kissed a Ghost.” And Kathryn has two GLBT/BDSM Erotic novella, the first being “The Transformation” with the second novella entitled “Becoming the Mother of the Bride.”

And after much consideration I’ve decided to alternate between the side and erotic side of my writing. Since “I Kissed a Ghost” has been from my sweet side the next endeavor I’d be working on will be:
“The Transformation” followed by
“His Darkest Secret” followed by
“Becoming the Mother of the Bride” followed by
“The Secret of the Well”

But unfortunately, even though I might to able to finish the writing of at least two of these endeavors I don’t possessed the funds to purchase the rest of the items necessary to bring them to fruition and available for purchase.

This means a lot of my time going forwards will be spent promoting the two books I currently have available.

Today’s update will be quite short.

Yesterday I finally received the proof copy for the re-edited version of my debut romance novel “I Kissed a Ghost,” in the early afternoon and I gave my approval around 4:30 PM EDT.

Today I’ve started the KINDLE Conversion process which will hopefully allow me to still start my promotional activities for Halloween. I’ve also ordered about 5 copies of the print copy; 2 copies of which are going to the US Copyright Office in Washington DC, 1 copy is for my personal use with the remaining 2 copies going to the GoodReads giveaway I plan to have: 1 for November and 1 for December.

As far as my book reviewing is concerned I’ve now written 631 reviews on Amazon with a Amazon Reviewer Ranking of 2,525.

This means after the next few days where I’ll be essentially, I’ll be returning to the manuscript for my adult Contemporary Romance, “His Darkest Secret,” which is approximately 88 % completed at the present time.

For the week prior to this past Monday has been somewhat of a small ordeal for me. Nothing serious but it has prevented me from moving forwards of the re-release of my debut romance novel, a MG/YA Paranormal entitled “I Kissed a Ghost.”

Today, I finally finished garnering the funds needed to give to CreateSpace to pay for the licensing fee to reuse the same cover I’d used for the original version of the book. However, when I spoke to the CreateSpace representative today, she told me everything including the licensing fee has already been paid. This means I’ll be getting my complimentary PROOF COPY in about a week to ten days, after which I can approve the print copy and I order the KINDLE conversion. Making the re-released of the book in time for some quick Halloween promotional activity.

Once this book becomes available and I do some heavy duty promotional activities, I decide to move on to my adult Contemporary romance novel entitled, “His Darkest Secret.” I estimate now I’m almost 90% completed with this endeavor. Once I’ve typed that elusive final period. I got to move my fund-raising activity into high gear.

I’ve finally be able to make progress on meeting my goal for this year’s GoodReads Reading Challenge. Where not too long ago I’d been about 20 books behind, as of today I’m 3 books ahead of schedule.

 

BOOK REVIEW # 2017-037 – THE OPTIMAL LIFE EXPERIENCE

Leave a comment

I received an ARC [Advanced Reader’s Copy] mobi.file copy of this book from the author’s publisher through a giveaway they had on LibraryThing and the following is my honest opinion.

The author, Brian Vondruska, has done a marvelous job in communicating to his readers about what the optimal life experience is. Instead of just throwing out the information/answer haphazardly, he has done it in a methodically manner by dividing it into specific chapters [components], with each subsequent chapter building on what happen been presented it the previous one.

 

Essentially, achieving the so-call optimal life experience is not achieved solely by taking something it requires a give and take, a give and take which is both physically and mentally. Extracting a combination of psychological, philosophical, and economical ideas the author succeeds in completing the jigsaw puzzle of the totality for the experience of human life itself.

 

Out of the intricacies which life presents, readers are given an

 

o follow path towards their feeling comfortable, healthy, or happy. This path is different from one person to the next. So, as each reader reads what is being presented to them, they develop their own individual path.

 

At the end of each chapter, the author has kindly given his readers a summary of what had been the intention for the chapter they’ve just read. If you ever wanted a book which would help you hack your way through the complexities of life itself, then this book would serve you well in reading it.

 

For wanting his readers to help find the answer to the sweet mystery of life itself, and have it be the optimal it can be, I’ve given Mr. Vondruska for 5 STARS his endeavor here.

Things are moving along slowly regarding completing the re-release of my debut MG/YA Paranormal romance novel, “I Kissed a Ghost.” Right now, I’ve approved the inner for the book and CreateSpace is finalizing that. Next comes the book’s cover which I’ve thought had been a done deal, since I’m using the same exact cover except for the ISBN number. But that isn’t the case, I’ve got to repurchase the cover’s design because the book is no longer using this number and has been assigned a new number. So, right now I’m waiting for CreateSpace to send me the cover again for my approval, which means I’ve got a chance to review any of the text on the back. Once I’ve approved this, they’re sending me a PROOF copy for my review and approval. It is at this point I can order the KINDLE conversion. Given this hopefully the book will be become available in its paperback, KINDLE and KINDLE Unlimited by October 15th. Just in time for Halloween.

My review of books has picked up its pace over the past few weeks, good enough that I’ve decided to restore my original goal for the 2017 GoodReads Reading Challenge back up to 200 books from its current 150 books goal.

Part of the time since my last status has been spent allowing my erotic side to do whatever needed to be done on its writing endeavors and promotional activities got itself.

Going forwards I’ve got to return posting some more marketing/promotional ideas. I’m looking for my fellow romance authors who want to be interview for my two blogs on BlogSpot.com and WordPress.com. So, if anyone is interested please send me a DM on my Twitter account and if you’re not following me here on this blog, I’d love for you do so right now.

Meanwhile. if anyone is interested in several unedited original snippets for “I Kissed a Ghost”, here are the links for my two blogs:
