In 2015 I published my mystery novel, Just Another Termination. This was not the first time I'd been published, but the most significant as this was my debut novel.
I learned fast about promotion as I scrambled to get my unknown face and book cover everywhere I could. Other authors were helpful and I found out some of the amazing things they come up with to sell their books. The example I'll use here is Murder USA – A Crime Fiction Tour of the Nation.
Kristen Elise, Ph.D. is the author of the Katrina Stone novels, The Vesuvius Isotope and The Death Row Complex. Kristen invited a number of us to join in her book of excerpts from crime novels set all over the United States. My book setting was in the South in a location not yet represented.
I'm honored to have my excerpt included along side those of other authors', some with more publications and more notoriety than me.
Murder, U.S.A. is a collection of excerpts from thirty-one full-length crime fiction (suspense, mystery, thriller) novels organized by a setting somewhere in the United States. Kristen is the editor, but all the authors worked together to set up the formatting and help with editing. The book is still available on all of the the online sites below, at cost from FREE up to $0.99.
