The Return of Smorgasbord Open House – Interviews for all writers and other creative artists.

Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

The Open Houseseries ran from January 2016 for four months and was one of the most popular of the interview series.  I thought that we might revisit the theme for 2018.

This series will be joined in the next few weeks by an additional author interview which will be in audio and more details on that shortly.

Would you like to be interviewed?

It is open to writers across blogging, books, poetry as well as artists, musicians and photographers.

It is an opportunity to showcase your work from blog posts to sunsets on Smorgasbord and my social media platforms.

I also want it to showcase the person you are and discover more about what makes them tick, their inspirations and also some fun facts.

I have decided to retain the title of the series as Smorgasbord Open House. If you were interviewed two years ago that is not a…

Doesn’t time fly when you are having fun. Cannot believe how fast this year has gone but I only have to look back over the year’s posts, and particularly the contributions from so many to the blog, to appreciate the amount of effort and time so many of you have given to making my life amazing.

Today a look back at this week’s posts that you might have missed and also an update on the next week.

I am going to be in and out of the blog as I settle in to getting my next book up and running. However, I will be doing a review of 2017 with the top viewed posts under the various categories.. There will also be posts on the new promotions for authors and bloggers in the coming year, and some updated versions of existing ones.

Recently I posted about the new format for…

Sally’s Cafe and Bookstore – Christmas Book Fair – #Children’s and #YA books Special.

Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

A slightly different format today as there are quite a few Children’s and YA books that I have not as yet featured in the Christmas Book Fair… the gift of books to children is one of the most important in my view and I know in yours too. The wonder of seeing images and words brought to life by the skill of the author… opening up worlds and stimulating imaginations, hopefully creating the writers of tomorrow.

Some of these authors do also write fiction for adults in which case you will find details of those on their Amazon Author pages.

#TinaFrisco ~ Free Books for the Holidays

TINA FRISCO

I love giving gifts. I enjoy watching the sparkle in someone’s eyes as they unwrap an anticipated treasure. 
The Winter holidays embody love, compassion, and sharing. I hold great hope for humankind and envision these virtues imbuing our lives all year round. If each of us did one small thing for someone we did not know, imagine the light that would fill the world!

Book Metadata? What The Heck Is Book Metadata?

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

by Derek Haines  on Just Publishing Advice site:

Book metadata is in the end, what really sells ebooks, so you need to know about it.

If you are an author and self-publishing on Amazon, Kindle, Smashwords, Draft2Digital, Apple, B&N or anywhere else, you need to know what book metadata is, and how to use it to help sell more books.

Take it from me, as an author who has been chronically lazy and left many of my long list of previously published books unchanged from the day they were published; times have changed. And how!

I have been booted into action, however, by this book metadata stuff because, well, um, here comes my admission. Because my book sales were falling, and I know why.

I have not made it easy for readers to find my books. No matter how many great reviews my books may have, if readers can’t search and find…
