There was some food from Robbie Cheadle to keep everyone going, some music from Status Quo,Queen and Bette Midler.. and a FREEbook.

Why Self-Publishers Should Avoid Bookstores

CATHERINE RYAN HOWARD

Recently I was asked to write a sort of factsheet that would act as a starting point for Irish writers considering self-publishing their work. It was a really interesting experience for me because since I signed a traditional deal back in 2015 – Distress Signals was published in May of last year and my second thriller, The Liar’s Girl, will be out next March – I haven’t really spent too much time thinking about self-publishing. So it had been a while since I had to commit to paper (or screen) my feelings on it. Would my advice be different with the benefit of these past two years? Is there such a huge difference between sneaking a peek behind the curtain and getting to go play behind it that my views would change completely? Is there anything I said three, four or even five years ago that I would never…

Smorgasbord Invitation to an end of Summer House Party – Saturday 26th to Monday 28th August

Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

In a few weeks we shall be coming to the end of the summer holidays and I thought that as I am also approaching my fourth blogging anniversary, it was time to have a party.

I have already begun to prepare my guest list with those wonderful writers who have supported me throughout those four years. They will be appearing automatically with their details and links over the three days.

However, as with any good party there is also an opportunity to mingle and share contact details with others to promote your blog, books and social media connections.

There will be some music, personal recollections of my special guests and something to eat and drink…virtually of course.

This is a celebration of a community that never fails to warm my heart with its kindness and generosity of spirit. I hope that you will be a part of it..

I will…

Sally’s Cafe and Bookstore – Author Update – D.G. Kaye, Adele Marie Park and Malia Ann Haberman

Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

Welcome to the Monday edition of the Cafe and Bookstore and time to take as stroll through the shelves and find out which authors have news.

The first is D.G. Kaye who has received some great reviews this week for three of her booksand I have selected the most recent for one we have not featured for a while.. The Words We Carry.

About The Words We Carry

“I have been a great critic of myself for most of my life, and I was darned good at it, deflating my own ego without the help of anyone else.”

What do our shopping habits, high-heeled shoes, and big hair have to do with how we perceive ourselves? Do the slights we endured when we were young affect how we choose our relationships now?

D.G. takes us on a journey, unlocking the hurts of the past by identifying situations that hindered her…

Sally’s Cafe and Bookstore – Author Update -Tina Frisco, Bette A. Stevens and Sue Coletta

Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

We open the proceedings with a fantastic offer from Tina Frisco who is putting her latest book VampyrieFREEfrom today until August 1st.

About Vampyrie

What if vampires were not the undead, but rather the dying? What if there were two factions among vampires: the sustained and the unsustainable? And what if those factions were at war with one another over the life of a young woman who promised them a future? Vampyrie brings the myth of the vampire into the realm of possibility. Phoebe Angelina Delaney is a reluctant genius and compassionate hothead. She finds herself in a pitch-dark underground and doesn’t remember how she got there. Did she drink too much alcohol and wander off in a stupor, or was she kidnapped by a malicious element determined to make her life a living hell?

Sir Michael Alan David is a vampire – an enigma, charismatic and mysterious…
