Set in the magnificent hills of the northern Costa Blanca, this story covers a sweeping range of emotions.

Don't Buy My Book

Tell Me a Story
Well here's a fresh approach. Is the plea a publicity-angle, or is Clarke genuine. It will certainly bring him media hype - I just wish I’d thought of it…
Author Jaime Clarke's new novel "Vernon Downs" will be available on Amazon in April of 2014, but readers can get a copy this December. His request: Buy it straight from the publisher, not from Amazon.

In his Web site Clarke encourages us to back indie publishers and ignore the hostile cost-cutting campaigns of Amazon that, he says, are good for consumers but damaging to the livelihood of publishers and authors.

Clarke is co-owner of an independent bookstore in Boston.

"As a bookstore owner, I see small presses come and go -- they usually publish a book or two and then fold after running out of money," Clarke writes. "For many small publishers like Roundabout, Amazon accounts for a large portion of sales, but the publisher realizes very little of the purchase price owing to Amazon's discounting policies."

Five Tips to Getting Published

Tell Me A Story

This article is from writer, Charlotte Rains Dixon

Here's the deal: you all know the basics of how to get published, right?  You research agents and publishing houses that might be a good fit for your book, write a stellar query letter, and then you send it out.  And send it out again.  And again.  That process hasn't changed, even with the advent of indie publishing (which is a whole different process), and it's not likely to any time soon. 
But what you might not know is what lies beneath the above process, the mindset that you need to develop in order to find success in the publishing marketplace. And that, my friends, is what this article is about.  This mindset is in some ways as important if not more important than anything else, because developing a strong underpinning to what you do as a writer will carry you through your career.
So, here's to a publishing mindset, which takes:
1.  Willingness.  You need to be willing to do the things you think you don't need to do--like establish an author's platform while you are writing the book.  You need to be willing to master social media, start a blog, begin connecting with your future audience.  Long gone are the days when all writers had to do was sit back, write and let their publishers do all the marketing.  You'll be expected to participate, and it's going to be a lot easier if you get a head start.  Agents and editors look at things like your blog, and your social media presence these days.
2.  Consistency.  There's nothing sadder than coming across a blog whose last post was six months ago.  Or a year ago.  Start your blog and be consistent with it.  Get on Twitter, and keep tweeting.  Polish your query, and keep sending it out, even after you've been rejected a gazillion times.  Work on your WIP regularly, as often as you possibly can. It's the writers who keep at it who eventually get the win.  I know, I'm one of them.
3.  Determination.  Are you going to quit the first time it gets hard to accomplish your daily quota of pages or word count?  Are you going to stop the second you get a rejection?  Are you going to give up when you can't figure out how to format your novel to indie publish it?  You better not, because both of those things will happen a lot.  To be a successful writer takes determination and perserverance in spades. If you don't force yourself to do whatever it takes to send the work out, your words will remain stashed in a drawer.
4. Creativity.  You can be the most lyrical writer in the world, but if you don't find ways to plant yourself in front of the computer, the words won't get written.  It all begins and ends with the writing and if you put the writing first, everything else will take care of itself.  Master techniques to get your butt planted in that chair.
5.  Craziness.  To commit yourself to a writing-centered life and vow to get published takes a bit of craziness.  It just does.  It's ever so much easier to be content at a 9-to-5 job, come home, eat dinner and turn on the TV.  Not you, because you come home, eat dinner, and turn on the computer to write, with no guarantee that anyone will ever see those words.  That's crazy, isn't it?  So be it.  I happen to believe it's also the most important thing you can do, crazy or not.
