Hereafter Joins Self-Published Fantasy Blog Off Competition



Hereafter Has Joined the Ranks of the Self-Published Fantasy Blog Off 2017 Entrants

Writer Mark Lawrence has, for three years, run the Self-Published Fantasy Blog Off, a contest to bring attention to the number of high quality self-published fantasy books. As Lawrence noted in his introduction to the first SPFBO, the greatest challenge for self-published authors is discoverability. With so many books published daily/weekly/annually (through both “traditional publishing” and self-publishing) it’s incredibly hard for authors to get the word out about their books.

To that end, Mark created the SPFBO. Ten bloggers, most of whom don’t usually review self-published books, each agree to act as the judges. 300 books are accepted into the content and then randomly assigned to the ten bloggers (30 books each) to be reviewed.

Reviews are the lifeblood of an author - they are the #1 promotional tool for any book, because they help readers find good quality books. Beyond that, some important promotional opportunities only open up to authors when they reach a certain number of reviews - 10, 50, and 100 are key milestone number of reviews that open doors for authors. Thereafter (Afterlife #2) is currently at 8 reviews on Amazon, and I'd like, with your help, to get it to the next milestone.

Welcome Spring Giveaway Hop

Welcome to the Welcome Spring Giveaway Hop
March 8 - 22, 2016
We're celebrating SPRING! with a blog hop! Visit all of the participating bloggers listed below and enter to win sweet prizes on each blog! Every blog is hosting a different giveaway - each with a prize worth at least $25.
This month, I'm celebrating not just spring, but also the release of my third novel, Whereafter (which comes out March 15th), so for my giveaway I'm giving away an awesome swag pack featuring these adorable notecards from On Cupcake Moon!
The reason I love these notecards and am featuring them in my giveaway is that Whereafter features a character name Char (short for Chartreuse), who looks a lot like this zombie girl:

Jonah glanced up as the bell over the magic shop’s door jangled. He blinked in surprise. A girl had entered the shop, about his age or maybe a little younger, tiny, with elfin features and straight, waist-length, jet-black hair streaked with vivid purple. She wore a tight, black tank top, short, flouncy skirt, purple- and black-striped tights, and black, knee-high, lace-up combat boots. Even stranger, she had come in the ghost side of the store even though she didn’t have the blue-white shimmer of the dead.

When I saw these notecards, I knew I just had to have them! My giveway is open internationally. Good luck! While you're here, stop and take a look around - I've got a few other giveaways going on and some exciting events coming up. Plus, the e-book of HEREAFTER, the first novel in my Afterlife series, is on sale on Amazon for only $0.99!

Why let a little thing like dying get in the way of a good time?

Thirty-six-year-old Irene Dunphy didn't plan on dying any time soon, but that’s exactly what happens when she makes the mistake of getting behind the wheel after a night bar-hopping with friends. She finds herself stranded on earth as a ghost, where the food has no taste, the alcohol doesn’t get you drunk, and the sex...well, let’s just say “don’t bother.” To make matters worse, the only person who can see her—courtesy of a book he found in his school library—is a fourteen-year-old boy genius obsessed with the afterlife.

Unfortunately, what waits in the Great Beyond isn’t much better. Stuck between the boring life of a ghost in this world and the terrifying prospect of three-headed hell hounds, final judgment, and eternal torment in the next, Irene sets out to find a third option—preferably one that involves not being dead anymore. Can she wipe the slate clean and get a second chance before it’s too late?
