Free Downloads Weekend Celebrates The 5K Zombie Run

This weekend we are celebrating our participation in the 5K Zombie Run taking place in Largo, FL, with some free downloads of Kindle ebooks. Of course, with this being a zombie run, author j gerard michaels has several promotions going. He’s offering a free download of 1 episode from every book (3 in all) of The Cord Wheaton Saga. They are: Zombie Raid, episode 6 from book 1, Zombie Origins, (there are 7 episodes in all in the book), Spring Brain, episode 8 and the first one of book 2, Zombie Menace, and Run Zombie Run, episode 14 from book 3, Zombie State, his most recent compilation just released this month.

Book Signing and free giveaways

j gerard michaels will be at the 5K Zombie Run in Largo signing copies of all 3 of his books, giving away some freebies to go along with them, and available to chat about what’s coming next. If you’d like to get yourself into the book, that’s always a possibility. The series is based in Florida, and the hero, Cord Wheaton, is a detective in the St. Petersburg Police Department. Most of the locations are real. The roads are real (except for a few in north Florida), and some of the people are real, as they’ve given permission to be included in the book.

Grandpa Tic Rawghers, author of the Grandpa’s Guides series, has come out with his first book in print! We are excited to announce the availability of You Can’t Change Me! Grandpa’s Guides on Life and Love, available now in paperback and ebook formats.

If you’ve heard kids complain right after they’re out of school, well, Grandpa Tic has some suggestions to make their summer vacation an unforgettable one. Filled with his wit and wisdom, Tic shares some snippets from a summer vacation he took that he still remembers to this day as he explains things to his grandkids and his kids.

There's Nothing to Do! cover

This guide will be a FREE download Friday and Saturday, 2/20-21.

Or, you can buy the print book and get the entire collection in Kindle format for only 99c! This offer is available all the time.

New Book and Author Appearances

New Book and Signings

j gerard michaels has released a new book, the third in his Cord Wheaton Saga, Zombie State, in both paperback and Kindle. It’s available now here. This is the cover:

Zombie State cover

This compilation includes episodes 12 to 16 in the series. It follows the detective as he attempts to prevent the zombie apocalypse from becoming a reality. It looks like one state has pretty much turned, and it’s his state, which was ground zero.

Filled with action, humor, romance, mystery, and of course, zombies, the twists and turns will keep you on the edge of your seat. Enjoy!

Author EVENTS

This is a busy time for author appearances. We have 3 coming up in the next month, all occurring within a week of each other.

Brigitte D. Moore will be giving a book talk at the Barbara S. Ponce Public Library in Pinellas Park on Saturday, Feb 28, 2015 in the afternoon. One of our most popular authors continues to make sales and spread the word about her personal story.

j gerard michaels will be at the 5K Zombie Run in Largo, FL on the same day, in the morning. You could actually make both events! This one is a fun family affair, with children of all shapes and sizes enjoying exercise and the outdoors. The author will have some goodies to give away as well.

Bria Burton will join j gerard michaels at the Gulfport Art Walk in Gulfport, FL (southwest of St.Pete) on Friday, March 6, at a booth selling their books. I’ll be there as well promoting Soul Attitude Press. This is another great event that we’re happy to be a part of.

UPCOMING

We have more books coming in the near future. Grandpa Tic is hard at work on his 4th guide, hoping he can then produce a print book. We’re also working on a step-by-step guide to give you the ability to produce your own book, for free! (Or, for the cost of this book, you’ll then have a guide to produce your own at no cost.)

The 5K Zombie Run – author J Gerard Michaels

The 5K Zombie Run in Sarasota – signing event Oct 11

Author J Gerard Michaels was at the 5K Zombie Run in Sarasota this past weekend, and had a great time. Head over to his website to check out a couple pictures and his take on the event.

the 5k zombie run author booth

He gave away a few flashlights (unintentionally, but how do you say no to a child?), some bookmarks, and sold a few books.

Also available on line were free downloads of his latest episode, Run Zombie Run, and he partnered with Tic Rawghers, who offered his I Didn’t Run Today short for free over the weekend.

Here’s the cover of Run Zombie Run:

Run Zombie Run coverWe should be announcing this new episode! Should have a week ago. Well, it’s never too late. Episode 14 in The Cord Wheaton Saga includes The 5K Zombie Run as one of the locations of the story.

One of the more difficult aspects of being an author is getting out in front of people. But you have to do it if you want to generate any enthusiasm for your books. So, find ways to get out there, and not just in front of book stores, but in front of the people who would be most interested in what you have to offer.

It’s about more than just the sale

Too often we hear authors complain that no one is buying their book. I think sometimes they forget that you have to build trust in your product, and recognition of your brand; and that only comes with exposure. So get out there and say hello to people, let them look through the book, see what you have to offer, but first and foremost, smile and make friends. If they don’t buy this time, they might buy the next.

Or they might tell a friend who decides to buy. As an author, though, it’s about sharing yourself. If no one comes, that doesn’t diminish your value or the value of what you’ve shared. You have to do it. You’re driven to it, just as others are driven to sports, to work, etc. So enjoy it and smile, a lot.

Hoppy Dance initial test release

New Book Release

Hoppy Dance released to test!

Author John Rehg has released We do the Hoppy Dance, a children’s book, using HP MagCloud (now part of Blurb), as a test of their printing a saddle-stitched product.

We do the Hoppy Dance cover
Front Cover for Hoppy Dance

You can buy it here. This includes a free iPad download!

This book breaks new ground for the author, and combines a children’s book with a coloring book, illustrated by his brother, graphic artist Paul Rehg.

Appropriate for 3-6 year olds. (Older children may enjoy the words more than coloring.)

Book Details

When you look at many children’s books today, they promote what they are trying to teach the children. The author has felt that some of these ‘lessons’ are made too obvious, and wonders if a more subtle approach might engage the child and teach them without preaching to them.

We do the Hoppy Dance introduces the concept of left and right to the child. It uses rhyme and repetition to improve the child’s memorization skills, and the activities (hopping, and coloring the drawings) can help improve a child’s physical coordination.*

Additional versions will be released in the near future.

*These statements by the author have not been evaluated by any government organization, nor any organization, educational or otherwise, that might provide such research. They are only statements by the author to sell the book.

More about Ani and Her Book

She had a book signing last night, and has additional appearances scheduled in and around Gulfport, FL. Check out her website for more details. She was a lot of fun to work with, and I think you’ll find John Carroll’s artwork for the interior to be very interesting. Thanks also to the photographer, Gregory Smith, for the front and back cover.
