Going to live shows and internet exploration allow music fans to discover talented artists within their communities and from around the world. Indie music has gone hand in hand with the development of the internet. Bands and individual artists can share and sell their music online, and big companies, like Apple, Amazon, and Google, have enabled musicians to reach global audiences who want to download music.

Fans of the fantasy, sci fi, and paranormal fiction can get a big bouquet of reading in the latest issue of Hero & Heroine Magazine in the Kindle Store. I contributed a short read to this anthology. It's an exciting episode from my novel Judgment Rising. In "Attack on Vetanium" you'll see the last-minute struggle of Dreibrand to save his family and settlement from two tabre bent on vengeance who have risen from a long hibernation.
The retail struggles of Barnes and Noble Inc. have been the poster child for illustrating Amazon's internet dominance in book retailing.
The company, which has a long history of inhibiting its internet appeal with both online shoppers and ebook buyers, has just come up with a concept that might boost in-store sales. Bloomberg reported that B&N has created a new restaurant group and plans to open eateries that serve alcohol in Eastchester, New York; Edina, Minnesota; Folsom, Cali

In this article from the Guardian, I read that teens prefer print books to ebooks. This might seem odd when you think how teens are universally addicted to their tablets and phones, but I think I have some explanations.
Identity vs. Clutter
Based on my experience selling books at comic and gaming conventions, I've noticed some differences in teens and adults. Although this is only anecdotal, I've had encounters in which the teen does want the paperback and the parent w
Does it ever bother you when you’re watching a movie and someone gets shot in the shoulder but still runs up and down a mountain, gets in a fist fight, and isn’t even really bleeding 15 minutes later?
I enjoy fantasy but I can’t imagine away chunks of flesh flying loose from the upper body and not having to take a breather. If a warrior takes a bad wound, he better have a friend ready to jump in and defend him from the mortal blow. Then he’s going to need someone with surgical skill
When the real world gets you down, a good book can take you away from it all. This weekend, you have a great opportunity to pick up a fantasy box set at Kobo Books. Through 5/31, The Rys Chronicles Complete Series is only $6.99 or its foreign currency equivalent in the Kobo store.
This box set includes four full-length novels: Union of Renegades, The Goddess Queen, Judgment Rising, and The Borderlands of Power. It's over 600,000 words, and it's certain to keep you caring about its m
My new release, Lessons Learned, has earned its first review, and...hand me the envelope...it's 5 stars.
These days, I rarely solicit reviews when I put out a new title. I prefer to take the slow path and allow reviews to come in organically from readers.
Lessons Learned is a short story that I created within my Rys World, where 8 of my epic fantasy novels are set. In this story, I reveal back story for Shan when he is just coming of age and still in love with Onja, wh
Oliver Stone will be releasing on September 16, his newest project, a film about Edward Snowden.
I'm definitely excited to see this one. I've admired Stone for years. His treatment of his subjects is always insightful and informative.
I especially admire this whistleblower for alerting all of us to the terrifying technological reach of our Big Brother overlords. All who find themselves in a position in which their jobs require them to do wrong and harm others are morall
I believe that Stephen King would have a hard time getting a book deal if he was just starting out as an author today.
His first novel was Carrie. It's an unforgettable novel, and King demonstrated tremendous talent in its creation.
But I don't think that any publishers would pick him today if he was just a no-name nobody searching for that first book deal.Just imagine the hand-wringing horror that would ensue if book stores suddenly stocked a book about teenagers plott
I'm pleased to announce that I have a new title about to release in the Kindle store on April 30th. My life has been a little rocky the last couple years, which has impeded progress on my writing, but Lessons Learned is a short story I wrote several years ago. I dusted it off and took another look at it. I was pleased with its quality and prepared it for exclusive release on Kindle.
The short story derives from the Rys World, which is the setting for eight of my epic fantasy novels.
Fantasy readers can be fussy when picking out a new series, and rightfully so, but my novels might offer you a refreshing alternative. I'm not ruled by formulas, and I don't just write the "young orphan boy or girl discovers magic powers and must save the world..." story. Although that can be a great story, it's just not the only possibility.
My characters tend to fall under the New Adult label, but there are people of all ages involved. In The Rys Chronicles, which spans

The Google Play store, with its global reach and easy access from the home screen of most Android phones and tablets, has given author Tracy Falbe another venue for reaching readers.
Titles from all three of her series experienced rises in sales in February. As expected, most of her readers hail from English-speaking countries like her native United States, Canada, Great Britain, and Australia. She also had a few sales pop up from India and South Africa.
I received some positive word of mouth on an episode of the Speculative Fiction Cantina. The guest was D. Allen Rutherford, author of Wargs: Curse of Misty Hollow. At 58:43 minutes into the interview, when talking about authors that he enjoyed, he mentioned me. He said that he liked Rys Rising and loves the way I write the fantasy series.
I'm very flattered to receive such praise out of the blue. It reminds me that my stories reach people all the time.
If you’ve been looking for an opportunity to participate in a promotional ebook box set, then I’m interested in making that happen for you, myself, and others.
To introduce myself, I’m Tracy Falbe, and I’ve been an indie author for years. I have 10 novels published right now – 8 epic fantasies and 2 historical fantasies. They sell modestly at all retail channels and I’ve earned good reviews.
I’ve recently been lucky enough to participate in a box set produced by Paper
I noticed in the news that nine countries have been added to the global distribution of my fantasy novels through Google Play Books. People in Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Oman, Lebanon, Kuwait, Jordan, Egypt, and Bahrain now have easy access to my fiction, especially on Android phones and tablets that probably have a link to the Play Store on their home screens.
I appreciate the international reach that I'm able to achieve as an author on Google Play. Although m

Qualifying titles must be for sale at the Kobo site. Both publishers and self publishers may submit entries in the categories of Romance, Nonfiction, and Literary Fiction.

It's tough when you're self employed and have to take time to deal with a health problem. I'm a novelist and there's no one to fill in for me. That means my readers have been waiting for my next novel.
Earlier this month, I was reminded of this when I noticed a 5-star review in the Nook store for Journey of the Hunted.
"I love this series, and I am dying for the next."
Such comments really motivate me. I sincerely try to make each novel I write
Since its release in November, the Legacy Box Set that includes my novel Werelord Thal: A Renaissance Werewolf Tale has been performing well on the Amazon Kindle charts. Today, the publisher, Paper Gold Publishing, pointed out on Facebook that Legacy Fantasy Box Set Vol. 2 had reached #4 in the fantasy anthologies and short stories category.
Its companion publication, Legends SF/Fantasy Box Set Vol. 1 is at #1 in the same category. I'm very pleased to be part of such a
