A Worthy Heart

From Nothing Ventured by Julie Arnold

“Dance with me,” Jax murmured, his lips brushing over her skin.

Dance with Jax? No, no, no! Her coordination was roughly on par with a swarm of mayflies blowing arbitrarily into people’s vinyl siding.


“C’mon, Maizey.” He chuckled at her gawkiness. “I promise I’ll return you just how I found you.”

“Thanks, but no.”

He gave her a look that could charm a grizzly bear. “Is it the dancing thing, or the ‘with me’ thing?”

“Maizey, I’ve held on to twelve-foot trees in tree shakers with icy…

Let’s talk author websites:

Close your eyes; think of your favorite, popular author. Have you been to their website lately? What does it look like? Which aspects do you like/dislike? Is it clean and professional? Cluttered? Does it take days to load? (don’t you hate that? I do.) Huge print, small print, huge pictures, small pictures, no pictures? Are you impressed as a reader?

Now think about your own website, if you have one. (If you don’t yet, you’re in the right place!) Incorporating these following 10 elements will help impress your readers—and hopefully, they’ll stick around a while. 

1 A list of published works

This goes without saying – but you need to have a page dedicated to your books, with book covers, synopsis for each book and BUY links.

2 An About Me page

You should absolutely have a bio, short or long…

Release Day: Romance and YA

Anaiah Press

We are thrilled to have our first 2020 releases today! First up is our romance releases:

Connie’s Coffee and Cones is thriving, and owner Connie Spencer is right on track to realize her dream of expanding into a catering business. She believes she owes her success to her remarkable ability to plan. In fact, she has a plan for everything. At least, she thought she did—until Michael Cole appears in Worthville.

Michael has an agenda of his own—and a competing business—that threatens to derail everything Connie hopes for professionally. And if that isn’t enough, Michael carries a secret that could cause a backlash for both of them. So, why does she find herself attracted to him? When an accident on a rain-slicked highway leaves Michael temporarily incapacitated, Connie is presented with a dilemma she never saw coming—helping the man she’s falling for, or moving ahead with her meticulous plans.

The process of writing and publishing a book is no romantic snowy walk in the park. It takes tenacity, dedication, persistence and yes, some planning; even by those who claim to write by the seat of their pants.

In order to impress readers, book reviewers, podcasters, and other media personnel (aka your potential author platform) you need to make the best use of these 5 online tools. (This is where that planning comes in.)
