WHAT I’D DO FOR LOVE 

A woman scorned is a dangerous woman. Greer Patterson always felt like an outsider. Loathed by her step mother and half siblings for being the green-eyed, fair-skinned product of her black father’s affair with a white woman; she’s never truly felt loved by anyone except her father and husband Michael. When Greer’s life as she knows it comes crashing down after discovering her husband’s torrid affair, she decides to take matters into her own bloody hands. Soon, after sending Michael to his untimely death and framing his mistress, she begins feeling something she’s never felt before…powerful. Now, with a new-found confidence and the freedom, if she can stay out of jail, she’s determined to stop anything and anyone from standing in the way of true love again!

WHEN I’M BAD, I’M BETTER 

Rome wasn’t built in a day, and in this present-day drama, neither was the facade these four cousins expended a lifespan constructing.  They say good girls finish last…but when they’re bad, they’re better!

Valerie’s just recovered from a career ending accident when her fiancé adds insult to injury by cheating on her with her closest relative. Devastated, angry, and now financially strapped, she’s ready to break all the rules…or is she?

Yasmin’s a successful attorney whose failing marriage has left a void that only a side romance has been able to fill. When a crime unexpectedly turns her life upside down, decisions will have to be made…or they’ll be made for her.

Vanessa’s an aspiring singer who’s tired of living in the shadow of her identical twin’s success. She’s not getting any younger, success doesn’t come cheap and fame costs!

Amina’s a beautiful bombshell who uses what she’s got to get what she wants; but she’s harboring seedy secrets that are anything but pretty. As skeletons begin to resurface, she needs them dead and buried…before she is.

      Siblings Brenda and Brian Andrews think their good looks, money and charm should afford them the pick of the litter among the abundant singles scene in Atlanta, and they’ve never been too shy to sample. Unfortunately, all pawns in their single life games aren’t playing nicely, nor are they willing to take being manipulated lying down.

As though they aren’t dealing with enough, the doorway to hidden family secrets is suddenly slung open when their alcoholic, philandering and often abusive father’s body is discovered floating in their parent’s pool.

Crawl inside the heads of these unscrupulous siblings as they take you on a dangerous, sexy, maniacal and entertaining journey inside the relationships of 2 siblings who think they know everything, but discover nothing is what it seems BEHIND CLOSED DOORS!

Is An Author Who Reviews Books Jeopardizing Their Brand?

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Reviews! All authors want & need them to gain & maintain a following for their work. Knowing the importance of book reviews, most authors who read, also tend to leave reviews. But could leaving a review for another author jeopardize your brand?

Face it. A lot of authors are just like any other artist, “We’re sensitive about our sh*t!” Of course, most, if not ALL authors think the verbal babies they’ve birthed from the depths of their soul’s imagination deserve 5 star reviews. Why would anyone bother to publish a book if they thought anything less of it, right?

Many authors are also avid readers and may have even become authors because their love of reading inspired them to write too. Because some authors can be fickle, or dare I say PETTY…attaching your name to a not so flattering book review could unwittingly put your own work at risk.

Here’s how:

  • Vindictive authors may seek out your work and rate it poorly as a form of revenge.
  • Readers & other authors may see your review as too harsh and/or think you feel your work is superior.
  • Networking within the publishing industry  is very important and you can create bad blood without even knowing it.
  • Even when posting good reviews, readers and other authors may see your perspective as biased.
  • Be careful with Amazon! They remove reviews and penalize authors at the drop of a hat. They actually have rules against authors reviewing works in their own genres. (Sad, but true)

For these reasons alone, I would suggest using an alias when leaving book reviews on book retailer sites, social media, or even on your personal blog sites. Remember that when you are reviewing a book you’ve read, you’re just another reader; and your reviews should be seen as such.

To Be or Not To Be with a Publishing Company?

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I’ve been a self published, “indie” author since 2012 and I’ve had offers from various publishing companies to sign with them. At this stage I’m wondering, “Should I?

I’m sure this is a dilemma many independent authors find themselves tackling with and I’m unsure whether I want to stay on my own for now or join a publishing company.

My books have being doing fairly well considering that I came in it with the sole intentions of my friends reading my first book Behind Closed Doors and it took off. After making some buzz on Amazon and getting into their top 100 list multiple times even making #1 a few times in its genre and topping out at #8 the most consistently, I decided to create a website KFJohnsonBooks.com  and write a sequel named Liar’s Ball.

Considering that I was a newlywed at the time and we were also purchasing a new house, my promotions for my 2nd book faltered a bit, but I still created a few marketing pictures, posted links and made appearances on some blog radio shows which kept the buzz going.

THIS year however; after releasing my 3rd book, When I’m Bad, I’m Better, I decided to promote my books and everything K.F. Johnson, full steam ahead! That included big marketing campaigns, book signing appearances, traveling for appearances and sales, attending author shows, awards and conventions, being more interactive on social media, etc.

Gratefully, stepping up my game has garnered me a decent amount of sales, a respectable amount of reviews on Amazon, Goodreads and other websites (between 33-85 reviews per book), a growing readership and numerous invitations to do more. With this, it’s put me on the radar for more publishing companies than I was previously.

I’ve been networking with authors, readers, marketers and publishers who’ve been sharing and filtering down vital and informative information to me which has made me wonder, “Do I want to be signed with a publishing company?

Supposedly, some of the PROS to signing with a publishing company could be:

  1. They absorb the upfront costs of editing, distribution, design and printing

  2. They will have an established relationship with a PR rep to establish connections with readers, bloggers, media, etc. to set up book tours and promote your books

  3. Signing with them will “legitimize” your works value and their staff can assist in ensuring you’re putting out quality books.

  4. You’ll have access to grants, awards and reviewers that traditionally ignore self published authors

  5. Some publishers offer advances ($1000 and up)

  6. They will do the administrative and financial contracting for your books by placing them in the correct genres, establishing your royalty percentages, assigning books ISBN, AIN#’s, etc.

  7. Locations for distribution are expanded to shelves in book stores, libraries, numerous online stores including their own, etc.

  8. All of the above should generate large sales and exposure for the author

Those things all seem great BUT, here are my CONcerns:

  1. They have creative control over everything and can make decisions about your cover, the direction of your books, the description, the title and the format with or WITHOUT your consent in some cases.

  2. Royalties will be less per sale (between 6%-25%) and may be paid out on a lengthy schedule (60 days, quarterly or twice a year)

  3. They would have control over movies, audio books, etc. concerning your works and making those deals OR NOT.

  4. Advances, if received, are given in expectation of sales and are deducted from royalties. If a book isn’t properly promoted, doesn’t sell well or the publisher discontinued print, that money is all you will receive.

  5. What if I discover that I sold more books or made more money when I was on my own? Some of the author’s/books under a few publishing companies that have approached me didn’t appear to be doing any better than I’m doing on my own.

  6. Some publishing companies want you to also have a separate agent. Is that something I want, need or can afford?

  7. They are in control of book release dates (sometimes up to 18 months) or whether a book is released AT ALL. This could also include waiting while they promote other authors

  8. Publishers can pull your book from print or discontinue printing at their own leisure

  9. The author is typically STILL primarily responsible for marketing and promotions

  10. Contracts are hard to change or break once you’ve entered into it.

Sooooo…with all of this being said, I’m still unsure as to what the best route is for my future. Maybe I just haven’t come across the right publishing company yet or maybe I am best of staying an indie author. I don’t know. 

What do you think? Are you an indie author or with a publishing company?
