Horror Novel Reviews

Written by: Matt Molgaard

Sadly, I only read about 25 novels in 2015. The schedule is picking up and the family is growing. A new business is being outlined and planned for a 2016 launch. It’s been a hectic 2015. All that said, of the 25 books I read, I found some genuine masterpieces. From a few of the names I’ve come to rely on to a few new discoveries, there were enough wonderful works released this year to comfortably assemble a solid top 10 list for you.

My Adventures with Kindle Scout: Day 3: Bill Goodwin

I’m just ONE chapter away from completing KELPIE DREAMS – the second book that I intend to aim at Kindle Scout – so any sort of info on this program still interests me greatly.

I have figured out that one of the things that the Kindle Scout folks are looking for is a solid sales history.

That’s where I fall short still. I have bumped up my sales numbers a bit over the last three months – but I still am a long way from hitting the steady sales that will make me Kindle Scout worthy.

Some folks might grumble and say “That’s not fair.” – but the simple fact is if they are going to give a writer a $1500.00 advance then they want to know that they are going to make that money back FAST!

In the meantime why don’t you take a look at Bill Goodwin’s blog on his OWN Kindle Scout experiences?

Finish That Novel!

I’ve done multiple posts on all my social media accounts, I’ve printed out business cards with the info and handed them out (with the immense help of my husband), I bought a paid promotion that should start in a few days, and I’ve even surfed on some traffic exchanges.
