Plastic Confidence has gone to Audio. Amen.

It only took four months to get the right woman (a New England accent) to play the role of Jules Delaney. She had to be rough and tough. She had to be childish and vulnerable. She had to be well… everything. After more auditions than I care to count, I found Lucy Lowe. She is edgy, fun. Makes me cry and makes me laugh. She took my words and holy shit – I am speechless in some parts.

It is now available for you to have an opinion about. I know it is a romance and about a band but it really isn’t. There are many themes in the book that can be made into a well done English essay. At the college level, of course. ūüôā

Try it out. Give it a go. Take the leap. Then…let me know.¬†http://tinyurl.com/PCAUDIO1

‬Could you Please share everywhere! Plastic Confidence is fabulously narrated by Lucy Lowe and written by Alisa Mullen. Ratings Banner

The Big Bang Book Theory

I am not an author in this post until I tell you that I am.

I am a mother, a wife, the keeper of a large home (including an in ground pool – Lord help me) and a small business owner that supplements my husband’s wages so we can pay for college, another new home, and well other shit – like new sneakers for my nine year old that are dead in a week,

I have always loved stories and movies. However, my business is making knots on a board so I can’t look up often and I have to be mindful of my work ALL the time.

I discovered Audio books (an APP) a place that for 21.00 a month – I could download a book a day. So – I did.

I had NO idea who Jay Crown over was. Emily Snow who? even Nora Roberts? Duh. I would have never sat down out of my business time to read FSOG. (sorry!) I have shit I got to do and it ain’t pretty when I don’t participate for even 5 hours!

So I listened to all of them. ¬†ALL – OF -THEM. I listened to more books that there were days in 2014. I know people’s work. It isn’t until after I listen do I go on social media and check them out – struggling just to get their name in a God damn¬†news feed on a social media site. SMDH

I am an author now. I wrote a fantastic book called Plastic Confidence. Sorry – but after being told so many times and rereading it? Well – I did! I have 56 reviews and not one review is LESS than 4 stars. So why isn’t it selling even for 99 cents this week? Poor marketing (I did everything I could) people don’t want to buy? (Meh – they could spare a buck. They probably spent that in tax today on something.) Readers don’t have the time or the mental health to add ONE MORE BOOK to their carousel.

Would you promise ONE more author to read their book when you can’t even squeeze it that one book you are supposed to review for a blog?

GUILT is tearing our blogs down. No one has the time because everyone is writing a book and there aren’t enough readers to keep up with them.

BOOM. Then there was no one. Except me , making my knots, listening, laughing, and crying to new audio books.

COST? HELL NO they aren’t free and no author should ever make their book free. I did that once. 25K downloads and no reviews. Why? Because as a reader, I will never have the time to read all the books that came out in 2013 – let alone 2014. OH but I did!!!! I know more indies than just about anyone. The true indies that put their stories to audio so it gives people a chance to live life.

Oh – off course there – so no – they aren’t free BUT whisper-sync drastically changes the price when you have ALREADY purchased the book through amazon. Not sure of total cost but another way is to ask the author for a gift. It’s lame but they have them – and like everything – we don’t know what to do with them.

If they can’t gift it – It is the cost of what readers should be paying bc otherwise – (Social Problem #1537 people with more eBooks than it is possible to read in the next 12 months on their kindle – ¬†are hoarders. Collectors of book covers. That is the biggest insult to an author ever.Worst line ever “I think I got that book on my kindle during a free day¬†and I will be moving that one up!” )

Reading was supposed to be pleasurable. This year has proven (by signing cancelled, blogs shutting down, authors quitting, haters killing themselves for the best meme) that is another world of inadequacy, understaffed, over-runned with really LAME excuses.) I am guilty. Read Unmarked – I sold out and for TLOG – I have to live with that forever. tsu isn’t going to help my sales. Nothing is.

But I sell my¬†audio books through Audible, iTunes, and whisper sync. People love my narrator and readers THANK me for a great story while they had to make that drive. I am so happy my book wasn’t read under pressure or because of guilt.

Download the Audible app and find out what FREE books you have come with a free audio and actually make those deadlines. You might hate it at first but eventually it is the story that binds us.

We live in a world where this is necessary. There are too many pressures. Press play and make dinner.

Unmarked’s Sean better than Christian Grey? You decide.

A review from “For the Love of Books”
” Sean is just the best. He has won his place as top of my book boyfriend list. Shoving the infamous Christian Grey down a spot. THAT is how good I think this author is! I think this is an Amazing book written by an extremely talented author and I look forward to reading more from her. Thank you for sharing your story with For The Love Of Books we award it 5 stars ~ Rosie”
