Hello everyone. It’s such a great feeling to find a brand new book in a genre you love. I’ve found some really good romantic comedy reads this weekend. I’ve mostly been reading books about book advertising lately. It feels wonderful to sink into a new comedy read and to have a giggle. One of my romance books is going to be promoted on an amazing book site called BookBub soon and I’m pretty excited about that. It will be on the 1st Sept, so don’t forget to go and grab yourself a bargain on that day!

Which genre do you find yourself picking up or adding to your kindle the most? If you looked at your book collection, is it by a mix of authors, or do you tend to stick to your favourites?

Being a writer.

writer meme by Lizzie Chantree.png

This meme always makes me smile because it’s so true! I feel like I have far too many notepads stuffed into my handbag and teetering on the edge of my bedside table, for me to scribble ideas onto for another book or blurb. I’m a bit of a notebook Magpie and can’t walk past a shop with sparkly notepads without drooling all over them, hence the puppy in the photo!

This week I’ve been working on my latest manuscript, which is about a woman who feels lonely and misunderstood, but she does something that pushes her into the limelight, causing her endless amounts of trouble. I’m at the start of the book, but I’m loving her personality already.

Have an amazing week everyone. Feel free to share what you are working on in the comments below this post.

 

Monday motivation.

Hello everyone. I hope you had an amazing weekend. I have just finished my first chick lit author blog hop. It had 417 comments and well over 600 engagements and people are still commenting, on one single post. Phew! It took a lot of time, commitment and effort, but I met lots of new readers, some of whom have already downloaded the summer read, Babe Driven, from the FaceBook hop and I would definitely recommend for other authors to give it a try. I can’t wait to chat to the people I met there about my books and to let them know about my new manuscripts.

I really enjoyed the gifs people posted. I asked the question: What would you do if the world’s hottest rock stars moved into the villa next door and invited you to a party, as Babe Driven is set on exotic island and full of exciting celebrities who are out to cause mischief. The resulting posts were hilarious and my husband kept asking my why I was giggling at my phone every day. The way everyone jumped in with good humour and the fact that they were open to learning about a different author that they might not have heard of before made it even more fun.

I hope that all of the new subscribers to this blog enjoy it and I look forward to chatting to you here.

Introducing Harmony Kent.

It’s my great pleasure to host author Harmony Kent’s work here today as part of her blog tour. I met Harmony through a book club and I’ve watched with interest as she’s published lots of wonderful books. She’s a real supporter of other authors and I hope you all check out her work, download her new book and write her an amazing review!

Author Photo Harmony

Meet Harmony.

Hi, everyone. Harmony here. Many thanks to Lizzie for hosting me today. I have a new book on pre-order called FALLOUT, which is a post-apocalyptic dystopia. This novel started out life by playing a little game. I sat and closed my eyes and imagined an empty room … in that room, a vial appeared. A dull orange plastic thing covered in scratches. It sloshed when I shook it. From that tiny beginning, the world of Exxon 1 and its deadly virus was born.

What happens to the vial in the wrong hands?

What happens in the right hands?

Author Bio

After spending around thirteen years as an ordained Buddhist monk, living in a Zen Buddhist temple, and six years after a life-changing injury following a surgical error, Harmony Kent returned to the world at the tender age of forty.

Now, she is famous for her laughter, and has made quite the name for herself … she’s also, um, a writer … and fairly well known for that too. She’s even won a few awards. Harmony lives in rural Cornwall with her ever-present sense of humour, adorable husband, and quirky neighbours.

Harmony is passionate about supporting her fellow authors.

Fallout Blurb

WHEN EVERYTHING FALLS APART, WHAT CAN YOU DO?

The year is 3040.

The location is Exxon 1, part of a six-planet system in settled space.

Determined to avoid the mistakes of old Earth, the surviving humans avoided democracy and opted, instead, for a non-elective totalitarian system.

The new way worked well, until now.

A crazy, despotic president releases a nano-virus on the population.

No one was ready for the fallout. It came anyway.

In this post-apocalyptic world, can you stay safe?

Monday reads.

Hello everyone. I’ve got my first festival next weekend where I will have a book stand and hopefully be chatting to some book lovers as well as music lovers. I have been trying to pack everything I will need and remember to take things like sellotape, signage, and table coverings. I put the books into boxes and it’s tricky to know how many to take. It’s a music festival, but there is a shopping area, which is where I will be with my books. I have also designed some pop up banners, and have a fold up book stand for the counter top.

I did a checklist and thought it might be helpful to anyone else doing a book fair or festival.

  1. Books. Enough of each type to display and sell.
  2. Stands to hold some of the books up so that they are easier to see.
  3. Frames with clear pricing. These follow my brand and have a picture of my books and a slogan at the top.
  4. Table or counter cover.
  5. 2 x chairs
  6. Gazebo.
  7. Tables.
  8. Name squares for customers who would like a book signed so that I know how to spell the names! These are cut out of A4 sheets but fit with my branding colours.
  9. Battery powered lights.
  10. A receipt book.
  11. Paypal app set up on my phone.
  12. Card reader.
  13. Plastic cover to keep the table dry if the weather turns.
  14. Sun hat/suncream.
  15. Water.
  16. Food.
  17. I have a five aperture frame with each of my book covers in to show the range.
  18. Scissors.
  19. Pens.
  20. Change for sales.
  21. Decoration for the table. Paper hearts etc for romance theme.
  22. Bookmarks.
  23. Leaflets. I had these made with all five of my books on them.

I hope I’ve thought of most things, but if you have any other suggestions, I’d love to hear them.

Have a great week! From Lizzie:)

coffee deadline for writers meme by Lizzie Chantree.png

Hello everyone. How are you all?

It been exciting here, as all five of my books have been in various bestseller lists recently. I’m an indie writer who is published by an independent press, so it’s wonderful to see people reading my books. A big thank you to everyone who has read, reviewed, shared news of online and told their friends about my work. I appreciate each and every one of you.

I’ve just completed my 7th novel, which means I have two new books which will hopefully be out this year. I have also invited four other bestselling authors to join me as admins for my Facebook group, Lizzie’s Book Group. This group shares news of books we love, has marketing tips for creatives and it about mutual support of writers, artists, creatives and readers. If you are a writer or avid reader and would like to join the group, feel free! The link is Lizzie’s Book Group.

I’m also trying to work out how to update my newsletter more often. I apologise for any delay, but for someone who thinks she is quite tech savvy, the instructions go straight over my head! I just managed to change my welcome email to an updated newsletter by mistake and now every new subscriber will get my July news! Lol:) I will work it out one day.

Have an amazing week.

Relax, enjoy and have some fun.

From Lizzie.
