Lots to talk about for today’s Fictional Friday!


First of all, if you want to sneak a peek over at the Fairytale Nerd’s blog, Joanne invited me to do a guest post/interview for her amazingly wonderful idea, 31 Days of Fairy.  31 days of posts devoted to all things fae!  You can even enter to win an ebook copy of “Abigail!”

Check out my post from October the 11th, “Wings or No Wings: Reinventing the Fairy”, then stick around and browse through the first 13 days of guest posts, giveaways, and interviews!  Lots of chances to enter and win books :)

Also today, I’m guest posting at 1000+ Books to Read on “Writing Into Myth” — a nerdy ramble on mythology and writing.   The post isn’t up just yet, but it should be live sometime this morning!  It’s an absolute pleasure to work with Melissa, who will be posting a review of “The Temple” on October 27th for my blog tour!

In other news, I’ve decided to set up my own LLC to cover both my formatting and my books.  About a month or so ago, I helped Ed McNally get some pics inside his book file for Amazon and B&N.  He started jokingly calling me “Cyber Witch”.  Well, I totally dug the name.  So, in honor of that… I present to you:

I know… so cute, right?  I’ll be looking into getting my Kentucky business license and making it all official soon.  Plus, I’m going to be setting up a website specifically for CyberWitch Press.  I’ll copy all of my Smashwords formatting posts there, as well.

Keep your eyes peeled because in the next couple of weeks, I’m going to be posting blogs on how to create linked TOCs within html, as well as how to format the linked TOC for Smashwords Word docs.  I may even be considering to write a book on ebook formatting.  Depends on how busy this girl is!

On October 19th, Eclective member Lizzy Ford will be releasing her newest book, “A Demon’s Desire”.  Other than the fact that one of my friends is releasing a book, why is this important, you ask?  Because Lizzy is complete awesomesauce and will be featuring the first chapter of “Abigail” in the back of the book!  I’m excited and honored for the opportunity to reach Lizzy’s fans.  Poor Abigail just does NOT get the attention she deserves!

I’ve trumpeted for several weeks now, but just a friendly reminder… The Indie Eclective’s Halloween Collection is still FREE at Amazon! We even had our first 2-star: an extremely well-written review.  I wish more people were so in-depth!  They say a lot of people don’t believe straight 5-star reviews, so I can only imagine this should help us reach some fans!  Pick up your copy of The Halloween Collection before it’s too late…

My Eclective buddy Alan Nayes has released his 5th book, “Smilodon”!

Jason Bristol, ex-prize fighter and expert animal tracker, and part-time drunk, teams up with beautiful wildlife biologist Norah Phelps as they pursue a man-eating predator that threatens to derail her father’s prize real estate development project in north central Idaho.

Against the majestic pristine backdrop of Idaho’s Bitterroot Wilderness Area, the adventure unfolds. Jason, with Norah’s assistance, soon discovers the ghosts of his past are nothing compared to the battle he’s undertaken.

Smilodon. A saber-toothed cat. He’s angry, he’s frightened, he’s hungry, and he’s 12,000 years from home!

SMILODON 75,000 words or about 300 pages

Alan Nayes is the author of GARGOYLES, THE UNNATURAL, BARBARY POINT, and GIRL BLUE.

Pick it up for 2.99 at Amazon and  Barnes & Noble.
