It has recently come to my attention that one of my products on Zazzles (as well as other works belonging to other people) have been used without my permission on a product for sale on Amazon.com. I contacted the company but they didn't seem to concerned with my complaint as they are still selling my work on their products. I have contacted a few of the #artists, #Amazon & #Zazzle but I am not sure what they intend to do about it. I will keep you updated. Here is the link for VintageSh0p:
We are very excited this year! New and exciting things have been happening here! Why?
1. We are constantly improving the books, new topics and learning so much along the way!
2. This year, we will be helping some rescue groups by placing their adoptable pets in our stories as background characters. - Freckles books.
3. We have a new series out which is getting a lot of attention. Be sure to check out Sherlock the Remarkable Cat Series' website and Facebook fan page.
4. We are on a roll for winning awards for reviews (every book has earned a 5 star!) and now we have the opportunity to win "2014 Best Book Cover Contest."
This is just a small portion of what is going on! In the meantime, we need you to vote! You can vote daily or every 2 days (the system is a bit picky). The link is below and we have the following books entered:
1. Freckles the Bunny Series, Book # 4: Freckles and the True Meaning of Christmas
2. Freckles the Bunny Series, Book # 5: Freckles and the Cost of Popularity
3. Sherlock the Remarkable Cat Series, Book # 1: Sherlock, the Cat Who Couldn't Meow
You can vote for all 3 books and here is how:
1. Follow the link and find the books.
2. It is the star rating system, 1 star being poor and 5 stars being awesome!
3. Click on the star to rate it and you can vote for other books too, not just one.
Wow do you miss a lot when you are sick! I just realized that I missed stuff that I should have posted about. Here they are:
1. A photo of the new book cover. See the left picture.
2. We are sad to announce that Willy's Happy Endings will not be in Freckles book # 5 as they were really busy and unable to complete the forms in time. We hope they will be able to join us in another upcoming book!
3. Plenty of Freckles news but you will need to see her website!
4. A brief synopsis is up for Sherlock's book # 2. I am holding off on the rescue book for a short while as I need more ideas and time to research. In the meantime, you can read about the next one (subject to change). There is currently no date set for this book as of yet.
5. ISBN's and morals have been added to the book listings to give those interested in the books a better idea on what to expect from each one.
6. There is a review up for Sherlock's book. The review links are also with the book listings now for easy access.
7. I can't remember but I think I had troubles with the flip book preview. It is available now as are the first two chapters still. Be sure to check them out if you are interested!
That is all for the news for a short bit. I am currently trying to catch up on Freckles' 5th book which is overdue because I was so sick. Once that is done and I have these formatted for Smashwords, I will be working on Sherlock's next book so stay tuned!
Sherlock Book Updates
Sherlock's book is close to release! We are just waiting on the last of the cover and from the looks of things, it will be well worth the wait! Awesome job Anastasia, as usual!!
Here is a sneak peak at the back cover!
The stamp is near complete as well and if everything goes as planned, I am hoping to have his book available for sale online, on Amazon.com this week! Once it is, I will be ordering some books for myself and taking pre-orders for signed copies.
Did You Know?
Did you know that before I even thought of creating a series for Sherlock, I'd already begun creating other things for him? The Facebook fan page called, "Stuff the Cat Doesn't Want You to Know" has many photos of him and his friends. It was made in fun but also so that Vickianne could practice tubing photos and practice using Photoshop. You can find it here:
To Have a Contest or to Not Have a Contest
I am currently debating about having a contest to win a free copy of Sherlock's first book. If you think we should, then click like on the website's post (either on the website or Facebook). If we can get about 20 likes on the posting between the two locations, I will hold a contest for a free copy of the first book.
Meet the Real Animals of Sherlock the Remarkable Cat Series
Have you seen the video? If not then please take a look! It is just a few of the great reasons to adopt instead of buying a new pet!
I've added a few things in the NOTES section of the Facebook fan page. In these you will find:
1. Quotes of Sherlock Cat
- Sherlock tries to have a positive attitude and wants to share advice with his readers.
2. Photo Contest Rules
- This is rules for any free book contests we may have at a future date.
3. Book Reviews for the Series
- While we don't have any book reviews yet, we do have a place for them now.
4. Book Titles and Prices
- This is only partially done. We are just waiting to confirm the price and the link for Createspace.
I've added a few selections in the page TABS too.
1. A Youtube Tab
- that features our latest video. We have these on Freckles' fan page as well.
2. An Author's App Tab
- Lists books from the series as well as how to buy them and a free chapter or two.
3. Pinterest Tab
- We're now on Pinterest! Please note that each series has a separate account.
4. Goodreads Tab
- A list of all the books I've written as well as reviews of other author's books done by my daughter and I.
Free 1st Two Chapters and Sneak Peak
The free first two chapters that I offered on the website has been updated! It has been edited and also shows the Table of Contents so that you get a sneak peak at the book. I've also uploaded them on fan page in the Author's app tab! As soon as the cover is done, I will be posting a flip book preview onto the website so stay tuned!
1. I've ordered a stamp and expect it soon. The stamp will allow Sherlock to "sign" his books just as Freckles does her's. The stamp is an actual print of Sherlock's and all signed books bought off of this website are signed by the author and him.
2. The cover is closer to done. This means that we will be releasing far sooner then expected so pay attention for any news updates about the book's release. I expect it will now be out no later then the middle of this month!
