For Whom The Bell Trolls

Lindy Moone:

Victoria is too kind, and too modest… I love her story, and it has some of my favorite lines in the book in it. (Innit.)

Antrollogy is not a misspelling. This is an anthology of stories about trolls, the bizarre and brilliant brainchild of author Lindy Moone. Lindy is a one-woman combo attack of awesomeness who also illustrated and co-edited the anthology. (Her book Hyperlink From Hell is amazing and you should read it.)

I was a late addition to this project. Lindy read Bloody Zombies and liked it (*swoon!*) and asked me to contribute something. What she didn’t know was that I’m terrible at writing stories from prompts and at writing short stories and at writing to deadlines. If it had been a less awesome project I would probably have said no but, for an idea as weird and wonderful as this, I knew I had to…

The Magical Mythical Tour…

Lindy Moone:

Aha! David doesn’t know the troll book’s origin story. (Must be the only history he DOESN”T know.) Well, A long time ago (less than two years), I got trolled on a satirical news site, and I thought, “what can I do to turn this frown upside down?” (Um, no, I didn’t think that. But I did wonder what good could come from it, and the book is the result.) And David’s story is amazing — one of two stunningly good “first” stories in the book — but not surprising, from such a good writer.

When it comes to telling stories, there’s an abundance of formats on offer, from crime and romance to horror and mystery, and everything else in between.

History is just another form of storytelling, and myths a more elaborate and creative form of history… stories of events that have been twisted and coloured over time as they pass from one mouth to the next.

Myths are important because they help shape how we view the world, through our belief in them or our dismissal of their message.

I got involved in a project a few months back, which had a little to do with myths, and which is finally coming to fruition. A group of very talented authors (and I do mean that) got together to write an anthology of short stories on the subject of trolls.

Why trolls were chosen, I don’t know, but it was a good choice, because…

Doing the Fan Dance

Troll Kindle cover for upload 320The antrollogy is resting comfortably in pre-order on Amazon, but I couldn’t be more nervous — not unless I had to dance the Fan Dance naked on stage in front of all my childhood crushes. So they’d better all buy the book or I’m gonna do it — and that’s a sight that can’t be unseen.

But there’s another kind of Fan Dance, and it’s all the rage: book promotion. I’ll admit to being very shy about dancing naked in public, but since it’s for a good cause… Here we go!

Let the bells ring out and the banners fly! It’s HERE!

Now available for pre-order on Amazon, our illustrated charity antrollogy for grown-ups! It goes live April Fools’ Day (of course). Please share! We need all eyes on this, to help fund Equality Now — a brave and worthy charity that supports the rights of women and girls worldwide — because it’s scary times for the female gender. (In fact, this book was born from my being trolled for the crime of posting while female.) We hope to get pre-orders, but even better would be sales on launch day to influence the Amazon Algorithm gods. Thank you for sharing, tweeting, buying — anything you can do! — XX, Lindy

A new book for indie publishers and wannabes

Lindy Moone:

What she said!

Originally posted on Carol Ervin's Author Site:

Podcaster, audiobook narrator and author Simon Whistler has become a well-known name among indie authors. His new book, Bootstrapping for Indies: Self-Publishing on a Budget, presents a different and radical approach to self-publishing–the “bootstrapping mindset.” It’s an easy introduction to independent publishing.bootstrapping.jpb

The ebook is currently 99 cents on Amazon, and free to download from Smashwords.com.

Everybody won’t like or be able to follow Whistler’s suggestions, but they’ll be great solutions for others. After all, Whistler closely follows the indie publishing world and has interviewed and interacted with hundreds of successful indie authors. I’m not a publishing newbie, but I made notes to myself of good things to do to save money and increase visibility.

Whistler’s book should give a lot of encouragement to those who are thinking of “going indie.” Be sure to read to the end—you can do it in a few hours.

See reviews on Amazon.

2 New Books by Exceptional Indie Authors

Lindy Moone:

Take Carol’s advice — seriously. She’s the bomb!

Originally posted on Carol Ervin's Author Site:

I’m happy share news of two new books by authors I admire for their fine writing and compelling plots.

The Kindle version of John L. Monk’s new book, Thief’s Odyssey, is currently sale priced (for a limited time) at 99 cents. This is the most recent book I’ve read, and it had me wondering, laughing, and hoping for the thief hero and his good intentions! thief_blog

Thief’s Odyssey is Monk’s third novel. He’s earned a lot of fans and great reviews for the other two, Kick and Fool’s Ride, which trace the predicaments of a man endlessly reincarnated in the bodies of bad guys. Monk is currently writing the third novel in that series.

In its short life, Thief’s Odyssey has racked up solid 5-star customer reviews. Try it–you’ll like it! 

The second bit of book news concerns yesterday’s launch of Sarina, Sweetheart, a compelling thriller by new author Megan Carney.Sarina.oldcover
