Hi,
I wouldn't mind calling in when you do your erotica show. However, my book is actually considered romantica (somewhere between romance and erotica). It also has quite a bit of humor.

Thanks

Okay, I don't mind saying that this scares the heck out of me, but we all have to do uncomfortable things from time to time, so YES I'd love to do it. I couldn't get the email on the website to work, though.

My book doesn't have a link yet. I'm going to be publishing it in late May-early June. Will you still be doing Kindle interviews in the next few months?

Here's the first chapter. (It's already gone through a couple of edits since this posting and will be slightly different. I will have a link once all of my final edits are complete)

Ummm...when you say everyone rating, do you mean kids. I try not to go too graphic on the murders, but I do have bodies and violence in mine. I wouldn't let a youngster read it...a teen, yes.

Janet - I hope to keep this up through Maya and beyond...there's a chance I might 'go get a job' - cause I want more contact with humanity (to power the muse) and I'm thinking about the hotel industry - cause I could work at nights and part-time, plus the people are CONSTANTLY changing....

Everyone - is like any public broadcast. If they can talk about murders on the nightly news - then your fine.

Let me know when it's published.

Ah, humanity, what would we do without our fellow travelers. Well, I will wish you the perfect job for you and if you desire an independent career, then I'll wish lots of people to purchase your wares (or your advertisements, etc.)... :)

Hi Splintered,

Is your show carried by any on-air stations, or is it strictly Inernet? Just curious. I've done the former, and would be happy to do so again. And I might do the latter, but I can't see giving free copies to Internet-only shows. However, I could promote upcoming free promos, when all listeners could download free. If you ever cover humor, my very favorably reviewed (40+ 5-star) humor book about cats is called The Cat Manual:

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B006ZTBJDM

email me at posting address if you'd like me to do the show.

I only have 2 to sell before the end of today to make 100.

Almost everyone knows, or thought that they knew, that Henry VIII had six wives and every school child remembers; divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded and survived.

Fewer people know that he had at least ten or eleven mistresses and at least 4 or 5 illegitimate children but probably more. He also had many more children that did not survive infancy – a not uncommon occurrence in Tudor times. He had at least 10 by his first three wives alone.

How different our history would have been if one of these had survived, been male and legitimate and became King Henry the IXth.

What hardly anyone knows is that he actually married one of his mistresses in 1538 so in fact the school yard rhyme should read ; divorced, beheaded, died, murdered, divorced, beheaded and survived

Have a look at it - under a pound (or under 2 dollars) - http://goo.gl/1n3r5

What time zone are you in?

Except Friday's - (erotica only) - anyone can call into the show and do the Lightening roundup (5 minute elevator pitch) on your book during the live show.

I'd appreciate it, however - that you didn't ask others to buy your book in this thread. Please edit that last sentence out. Thanks

Hi Splintered,

Is your show carried by any on-air stations, or is it

cats is called The Cat Manual:


Anyone can call in for a 5 minute elevator pitch, no Gift copy required (except Friday's when we don't take calls - unless you're writing romance/erotica) just tune in and wait for me to announce the Open Pitch time.

Only actual interviewed guest authors get links to their books on the show blog, however - and the increased exposure that comes from longer air time.

Anarchist Farm by Jane Doe

http://www.amazon.com/Anarchist-Farm-ebook/dp/B003P8P9UK/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1335807375&sr=1-1

YA and Adult Fiction

191 pages

The Kindle version is Free tomorrow in celebration of May 1 because it is an anarchist book which ends with a general strike.
Occupy the Redwoods!

A fast-paced fable in the tradition of George Orwell's Animal Farm, which painted the evils of capitalism and communism. Anarchist Farm illustrates a positive alternative as a group of animals explores new/old ways to live together while fighting to protect their forest homes from corporate greed.

"Anarchy holds out the best hope for a world that requires, not just a change of system, but a change of heart. Anarchist Farm goes to the heart. Here we have an intelligent, quirky, funny, and often ironic parable of how that change of heart can grow from dream, through action, to reality." -- Utah Phillips, singer-songwriter

Published as a paperback in 1996, Anarchist Farm was translated into German and published in 2008 as "Die Andere Farm Der Tiere". Both paperbacks are currently available and now an English language e-book.
