If you haven’t yet heard about Brenda Novak’s Annual Online Auction for Diabetes Research, it’s a wonderful event in my opinion and for such a great cause. I myself have diabetes, so finding a cure would be a dream come true. Every year for the past few years, Brenda and her staff have put together a huge auction from May 1st through May 31st. Each year, there are more items to bid on. And each year, the items just get more awesome! They have raised an amazing cumulative total of $1.6 million. This year they’re hoping to surpass the $2 million mark.

There are items for writers such as website design, promo opportunities, agent and editor queries or critiques, author critiques, and conferences, etc. You can bid on sports memorabilia, handmade crafts, jewelry, spa items, vacation/getaway listings and more! You can check out what’s available here. Just click on the “browse” button and find some really cool stuff to bid on. You can also follow along on twitter and facebook to learn about the latest items up for bid.

Even though I’m a writer, I am a reader – first and always. So, I particularly enjoy the “For Readers” section. This year, I’m very proud to be part of a donated item in that section. Our WG2E Street Team donation of a Kindle Paperwhite preloaded with more than forty of our books and a wall charger will be available to bid on MAY 28TH ONLY. Click on that link and you can see all the authors who are participating and all the great ebooks that will come with the Kindle Paperwhite.

The Whys and Hows of Writing Ebook Reviews, Featuring RG2E Author Marina Maddix

Wavin’ atchya, RG2E Peeps!

Please give a big ol’ RG2E Welcome to First-Time Featured Author, Marina Maddix, who’s sharing wonderful tips on Writing Ebook Reviews!

Take it away, Marina…

Let’s face it, writing reviews for the books we read can be downright daunting. Some of us are voracious readers, so keeping up with all the reviews we’re supposed to leave is overwhelming. Others of us have very busy lives, so on our list of priorities, leaving a review falls somewhere between changing the baking soda box in the fridge and cleaning mildew off the cellar walls. Some readers may even be worried about putting their own writing — even in the form of a book review — out there for the world to see.

By posting a positive review to Amazon, you’re leaving a permanent mark of approval for those who might want to read the book after you. It’s called social proof. Reviews also tell us writers when you want to read more about certain characters. I didn’t expect my steamy erotic-romance short story Knight Fall to get much of a response but readers seemed to connect with my heroine, Kelly. A handful left reviews, but many emailed me asking for more of Rick and Kelly’s story. If I’d relied solely on my few reviews, I might not have written the sequel, Vegas Knights, which I released on March 1. (Did you know you can create any pen name you want for your profile, so none of your family and friends will know which books you review?)

If you love a book or a series or a character or an author, you may very well be doing yourself a disservice by not leaving a review letting others, including the author, know you want more. The more good reviews a book has almost always translates into more sales for the author. Increased sales means s/he can write more, which means you can read more. Win-win!

Look at it this way: If there is a tiny specialty grocery store in your hometown that you would hate to see go out of business, you make an effort to shop there occasionally and tell others about it to show your support. Leaving reviews for your favorite authors works the same way.

Now to the nitty gritty. You hate leaving reviews, don’t have the time or don’t know what to say. The key is to speak the truth. If you loved a book, tell us why. Don’t give out spoilers but a few tidbits help us understand if we might like the same things. And they don’t have to be long, detailed book reports, either. Here’s an easy template to start you off that fulfills Amazon’s 20-word requirement but won’t take up much of your time — replace the ALL CAP words (and examples) with your own words:

“I really enjoyed BOOK TITLE because the story made me feel EMOTION (happy, sad, conflicted, reminiscent of my childhood, etc). I especially liked SOMETHING (a character, the storyline, a plot twist, etc — just don’t leave a spoiler!). I think anyone who enjoys GENRE (sci fi, erotic romance, WWII history) books, would enjoy this one.”

If you have a specific criticism of the book, go ahead and include it, such as: “I didn’t care much for SOMETHING (the writing style, a certain character, the ending), but overall I enjoyed the story.”

So what if you hated a book? Personally, I do my best to live by the ‘If you can’t say anything nice…’ rule Mom taught me. But if you feel compelled to leave a negative review, ask yourself a few questions first:

  • Were my expectations realistic? For example, you picked up a freebie months ago and just started reading it. You thought it was chick lit for whatever reason but you’re disappointed to learn it is actually a biography of Otto von Bismarck. As fascinating as the book may be, it’s not what you wanted to read, and you’re irritated. Before leaving an outraged review, pop over to the book’s Amazon page to see if the description and categories accurately depict the content. If so, leaving a negative review because you got mixed up doesn’t help anyone.
  • Was the book poorly written or did I just not like the decisions the characters made? I received a review in which the reader complimented the book up and down but gave me one star because she didn’t agree with a decision a character made at the end. I can understand her feelings but she claimed to enjoy everything else about the book, so did it really deserve one star? There are five stars to choose from — two, three and four stars are perfectly acceptable alternatives. Pick the one that best fits your *overall* feeling about the book.
  • Am I angry/upset/offended by the subject matter? If that’s the case, I would suggest not reading any more books in that genre as it’s just not for you. Leaving a negative review for the Bible because you’re an atheist is downright rude. The same holds true for paranormal erotica, unauthorized biographies or history texts. It’s a great big world out there, full of diversity. If you find yourself hating every book in a particular genre, try a different one.
  • Which brings us to the biggest question: Did I actually read this book? If you didn’t read the book, but rather are just assuming it’s bad because you believe the subject matter to be morally wrong or you think it’s a rip-off of your favorite author or you’re ethically opposed to mining for purple diamonds on Jupiter, please don’t leave a review. Not only is it against Amazon’s Terms of Service, but it’s downright deceitful. Instead, read a book you think you’ll enjoy and use the template above to write a glowing review!

Vegas Knights DESCRIPTION:

VegasKnights

After a passionate public encounter with a mysterious and very sexy biker, big girl Kelly Saunders finds herself on the ride of her life. Her ‘Knight on shining armor’ — Rick Knight, heir to a motorcycle legacy — whisks her away from her soul-sucking corporate job to Las Vegas, where she finds the road to love is treacherous.

As urgent business matters demand more and more of Rick’s attention, Kelly is left to wonder about the future of their relationship. A ruthless betrayal throws her life into turmoil, and a devastating discovery threatens to pull them apart. Is their love just so much Vegas glitter or is it strong enough to survive beyond the dazzling lights of Sin City?

Special $2.99 price until March 10!

EXCERPT:

They sat entwined under the stars, swaying slightly with the rhythm of their own bodies. Rick’s hands moved slowly from her hair down her back. Shivers of anticipation rippled through Kelly. They were going to make love under the stars. It had always been a fantasy of hers but she’d never imagined it would come true. But a lot of things she’d never imagined were happening lately.

Feeling the need to show him she wasn’t some precious flower that needed tending and special care, that she was an independent woman, Kelly took control. His eyes never left her body as she moved to stand over him, legs spread, hands on her hips.

“Strip.” The single word brought a knowing smirk to Rick’s face. Without a word, and still never taking his eyes from her, he eased his off his jacket, throwing it aside. His gaze was positively smoldering as he loosened his tie and started to pull it over his head.

“Leave it.” Kelly commanded on impulse. His hands paused, then dropped to the front of his charcoal Armani button-down, his eyes burning into her flesh like a brand. His fingers worked slowly, deliberately, intensifying her need for him. But she wouldn’t give him the satisfaction of seeing her impatience. Cocking her hip, she let him tease her with his leisurely pace.

When the shirt was lying atop the leather jacket, he looked up expectantly, awaiting her next instruction. When she nodded toward his pants, triumph flashed across his face. She realized her mistake as he moved to stand. Once on his feet, he would tower over her, emphasizing her vulnerability and his dominance.

“On second thought, scratch that.” One of his eyebrows shot up, and a look of exasperation took the place of triumph. She knew the score and she wasn’t going to give him an advantage if she could help it. He leaned back on his elbows — shirtless and irresistible — and studied her.

She couldn’t afford to make a misstep or show any hesitation. This had become less of a game for her and more of a demand for equality in this relationship. He may be rich, but that didn’t mean he was in control here. Either he accepted that they were in this together, as equal partners, or he would be taught that lesson. Of course, she suspected that would be a lesson he might enjoy learning.

Welcome to a Reader’s Paradise!

So many of us believe in the adage:  You get what you pay for..  That is true, but not always.  A recent report from Digital Book World reveals that the average price for a top-25 bestselling book has fallen considerably, dropping from a high in October of $11.37 to $8.23.  What’s that have to do with you?  Everything!  It’s never been a better time to be a reader.  More people are writing books giving you, the reader, more choices, and since the prices are coming down, it means you get more bang for your book-buying buck.  It’s a veritable reader’s paradise.   And speaking of paradise, this is the last day to snag some great read from those authors who hang out at the Beach Book Blast site as well as being the last day to register to win the spectacular prizes they are giving away.

Below is a sampling of those being offered:

A little world travel, a little romance, and a lot of suspense!

~~~~~~~~~~

Hi RG2E Readers!

It’s nearly two weeks since we celebrated the arrival of 2013, and the writers from the Beach Book Blast knew that once we flipped the calendar and settled into January, you would be looking for some fantastic stories to fill your e-readers.  Seventeen of our authors are offering books to warm up your winter reading.  Many of you may have just received your first e-reader as a gift and are not sure about embracing paperless books, but that brings me to another new year that is soon approaching—Chinese New Year.  This is the year of the water snake.  According to Chinese legend, the water snake is a formidable creature because even though it is small, it can swallow an animal much larger than it.

E-books are the water snakes of the publishing world.  While we are confident that paper books will never completely go away, e-books and e-readers are gradually swallowing up the traditional publishing world, and once you download our books, you will know why.  Indie books are the wave of the future!  Take a look at the ones featured below and start reading today.  Also, make sure to drop by the BBB site and register to win a $50 Best Buy gift card so you can get some wonderful accessories of your e-reader. Second and third prizes include gift cards from digital outlets for more e-books.
