It's that time of year again. School is starting and so much more! Sorry I haven't blogged updates here in a bit but we've been rushing to get back into our house. Some things have been moving far faster then we planned. We are hoping for everything to slow down after next month and for us all to be settled in. In the meantime, here are some updates now & some to expect over the next month or so for all 3 websites: Now:
I have finally managed to fix those pictures on Freckles' website.
2. School Visits in Your Area
I've already posted which areas we will be looking at visiting. The school proposals will explain more but it is free even if we have visited your school before. Feel free to contact us for more information. The areas include:
3. Erika-Elizabeth's Blog
As many know, Erika-Elizabeth is my daughter. She does the crafts for the books & video records them for children to do with her. She also does book reviews for me in her spare time (book reviews are on hold until we can get her computer down here). She has finally posted a second post and will continue to do so as the week progresses. Erika-Elizabeth has also co-authored Freckles' book # 6. Find her blog on Freckles' website & her review's on mine.
4. E-Book Sales
We currently have most books down for sale at $2.99 USD. Check them out on Barnes & Noble or Apple/Itunes.
5. Book Reviews
We have some new book reviews up for each series. Be sure to check out Sherlock's 1st book's review as well as Freckles' 4th & 5th books. You can find the reviews from here:
Expect new photos to be up & posted over the next while on the websites.
2. School Proposals
I still need to update proposals for both series' for the schools before I contact them again this year. You will be able to find them on both websites soon.
3. Freckles Book # 6 Pre-Order Special
A pre-order special for Freckles the Bunny Series, Book # 6: The Freckle Monster, is being put together as we speak. This is the bullying book I have been talking about. The release date has yet to be decided but it will be out before Christmas.
4. Freckles the Bunny Series, Book # 6: The Freckle Monster Preview & Trailer
We will be working on the trailer and preview for the upcoming book very soon so keep an eye out on the website & Youtube channel.
5. Freckles Bundle Deal
A special bundle deal where you can buy a few books at a special price will be coming soon!
This is just some of what is to come!
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.
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!
