Places to Find All of My Books

The Last Rites

This is the latest release

As an Indie author, that is one who is not published by a vanity press or a traditional publisher, none of my books are sold in what we call box stores. That is brick and mortor stores. The reason is they buy all of their books from Lightening source or Baker and Taylor on consignment. They shelve the books for 30 days then pack them all up and send them back to the distributor. The author is paid in advance the royality for that sale. When the books go back the author is charged back that royality and has to give the money back.
As an independant author I have no distributor. I am the distributor as well as the marketing and PR person. I control my destiny. So all of my books are sold online. Which is not a bad thing. They are best sellers.
For those of you who have been reading my books for years you know where to find them. But for all of you newbies, there are so many places to find my books.
You cand find them at Lulu.com both as a paperback and download on Amazon.com as well as Amazon Kindle. You can also now find them on Barnes and Noble Nook Book. Yes, boys and girls they are available on Nook. All of my books can be read on any electronic equipment you have from iphone to ipad to computer to kindle and nook. Unlike many authors I believe the reader should be in control of how he wants to read his book.
The best part of being an independent author is that if you the reader want a signed copy you don’t have to wait until I have a signing. You can order one anytime you want to at my online bookstore at http://thebookattic.ecrater.com When you order your book, you receive a thank you note as well as other goodies. It is just my way of saying thank you for being a reader.
Subscribe to my blog because it is a way of staying up dated on my latest news and appearances.
I have just released my second true crime novel and am currently working on two new books. One I am co-aurthoring with my friend and fellow author Andrea Dean Van Scoyoc it is the second in the Harrington and Morgan Series.
I am also working on another historical novel. This one is about Jean Laffite one of the last Pirates. The history is real the story is fiction. I am including a bit of a twist simply because it makes it more fun.
Think Voodoo Queen.
So subscribe and enjoy the ride.

Jupiter Library Workshop

36 folks at my workshop at Jupiter Library

On Tuesday November 17th I conducted at writers and marketing workshop at Jupiter Library in Jupiter Florida. There were 36 people in attendence. It was amazing. The audience asked well thought out questions. They were very interested in the marketing aspect for indie authors. They were amazed at the power we now have as indie authors.
Some of them have not yet published but when they left they were excited about putting fingers to keyboards and pen to paper. They were ready to let their stories out. I am planning another workshop sometime after the first of the year. I am currently looking for a venue. If you are interested please let me know

Writers Workshop at Jupiter Library Jupiter Florida November 17,2009

I will be in Jupiter Florida on November 17,2009 from 6:30-pm-8:30pm conductin a writers workshop. I will be talking about writing and marketing in the 21st century for indipendant writers. As indie’s we have an opprotunity that has never before been afforded to us. We have ways of publishing our works and marketing those works that until now has been closed to us.

    The key is dedication and hard work. I will be teaching how to market and where to get your works published. Come join me if you are interested in writing, have written and don’t know how to get published or what to do once you are published.

     This workshop is free and open to the public. You can either contact me at ysam51@yahoo.com or Jupiter Library for more information.

  I hope to see you there.
