Clippings September 2019

Don’t you just love the painting by Elisa Choi on the front cover?!

In this issue I describe what it’s like in the “quiet months” when running a B&B.

When we’re closed, I still have to answer the telephone and deal with online bookings. We try and keep to a regular routine otherwise we find we get too tired. We’re usually up by 8am …

I also continue my explorations of Dartmoor in haiku and elfje.

I really enjoyed reading it, the story is full of suspence and intrigue, which I both adore, and the haiku are great! C Messelodi

Olin Heon Volume Four of The Kaerling Series

Olin Heon Volume Four of The Kaerling Series

Different colour! Different characters! But it’s the same series!

Volume Four of The Kaerling will be available in a few weeks time!

If you’ve not yet read Silver Fire (which is a FREE download), Ambassador or An Ancient Song, you need to read them before you buy Olin Heon.

” truly captivated my imagination from beginning to end” K Johnston on Silver Fire

Haven’t come across The Kaerling series yet? Read about the first two volumes at “Difficult to put down”.

And, if you’re one of my Patreon supporters, you’ll be seeing the launch video and sample chapters (depending on how much you donate each month) very soon!

Like watching videos about books before you buy them? Try these out: –

DO

Offer her a guest blog post so your followers can discover her and find out why they need to buy her book. Ask her unusual questions, don’t be run-of-the-mill!

DON’T

Just offer congratulations. Just don’t. It means nothing. Buy her book!

You can find the links to all my books here at Barnes & Noble.

DO

Share her blog post on social media when she launches her new book. Email all your friends and family with the link. Talk to everyone you know about it.

DON’T

Offer to review her new book in exchange for a free copy. Yes, she needs reviews, but she also needs to earn a living.

You can find the links to all my books here at US Kindle.

DO

Buy her book as soon as it’s launched. Read it within a week. Review it straightaway. Then blog/tweet/pin/share your review everywhere.

DON’T

Ignore the fact that she’s written and published a book. You will be dropped from her Christmas list.

You can find the links to all my books here at UK Kindle.

If you do, I need your help!

_DSC3074

I have a FREE e-book that I would like to use in promotions on both My Book Cave and Bookbub. Silver Fire is the first in The Kaerling series, thus it is free! I have been saving up my Patreon contributions to fund a Bookbub and a My Book Cave promotion and am nearly there!

Please would you consider reviewing Silver Fire during your Summer Break so that I can proceed with my marketing campaign? I need 20-25 4-5 star reviews over Amazon and Goodreads to even be considered for a promotion.

Silver Fire can be downloaded for FREE at: –

Amazon UKAmazon USiBooksNookKobo

Scribd24 SymbolsPlayster Angus & RobertsonMondadori

Silver_Fire_Cover_FB

If you don’t subscribe to any of these on-line stores, please send an email to freya.pickard@gmail.com with “I want to review Silver Fire” in the subject line and either PDF or MOBI or E-PUB in the body of the email and I will send you the appropriate file.

Find out what readers have already said about Silver Fire at Amazon, Goodreads, The Wobbly Dum Dum Tree  and IndiesToday!

Thank you for your support! Much love! Freya xxx
