A Place for Science Fiction Lovers

I has to be said, I LOVE science fiction. I watch it, I read it, I write it. With CRYO: A Changed World in final edits, it got me thinking about places that people can find good SF reads. A group that offers a constant stream of new releases, deals, freebies and awesome books that take us to new realms and foreign worlds. After doing a search for likely pages on Facebook I found nothing, nada, zip.

So, as if I haven’t got enough on my plate, I decided to start Science Fiction Books. For those who might be familiar with pages, such as Ebook Corner or What to Read After Fifty Shades of Grey, the concept is the same. I’m simply posting new books by trad and indie pubbed authors every day. Some Hard SF, some Space Opera. Some Colonisation, some Post-Apocalyptic. Basically,  a little of everything. There’s a few freebies, some new releases, some discount deals and some regular priced stuff too.

So, if you’re looking for a new read and want a place where you can be assured of ONLY Science Fiction, then head over to Science Fiction Books. I started it just five days ago and already have over 100 likes, and you’re more than welcome to the crowd. 🙂

Increase your July book sales with Smashwords promotion

Promotions can often be key in marketing. Getting people to buy your book is no easy thing, as I’ve discovered myself, and a few freebies and discounts here and there can offer great incentives for readers to download your book, read it, love it and hopefully spread the word.

If you currently sell with Smashwords and received their email this morning, don’t bin it to your delete box before reading because they’ve announced their Summer/Winter sale. This site-wide promotion starts on July 1st and lasts a month, allowing you to discount your books. You can make them free, 75per cent off, half price, or 25per cent off. If you want to enrol, then do so before July 1st for maximum exposure.

As you can see from the form above, it only takes mere seconds to enrol and you might find a jump in sales. I’ve never used the promotion before, but anything to offer readers a little extra incentive to buy your book is a good opportunity to utilise. Inside Evil will be 50% off for the month, and you’ll be able to buy it at the reduced price using the SSW50 code.
