Self-Pub Like A Pro: Kristen Ashley Tells All - 2014 RT Convention

BY , MAY 21, 2014 | PERMALINK

Self-publishing is a brave new world, which can at times seem difficult to navigate. We're here to help you get your bearings with our monthly column, Self-Pub Like a Pro. Last week at the RT Convention in NOLA, self-publishing powerhouse Kristen Ashley sat down for a frank discussion with Smashwords founder Mark Coker to discuss the nuts and bolts of self-publishing, from formatting to pricing and more. Here are just a few of the tidbits RT editor Tricia Carr picked up. 

Mark Coker and Kristen Ashley

If you’re a romance reader, you know the name Kristen Ashley. But that wasn’t always the case. Her journey from selling nearly no copies to seeing her books on The New York Times bestseller list wasn’t easy. When Coker asked Ashley what gave her the confidence to quit her job and self-publish, she quickly assured him that she generally does not recommend doing so — and then admitted to ignoring these rational thoughts.

Elyssa Patrick's Favorite Four Weddings And A Break Up

BY , MAY 12, 2014 | PERMALINK

In Elyssa Patrick’s Four Weddings and a Break Up, a fake relationships becomes real — one of our favorite tropes! Enamored as we were by Elyssa’s title, we decided to make her tell us her very favorite four weddings and a break up from pop culture. Take it away, Elyssa.

The cover of Four Weddings and A Break Up

Wedding #1: One of the biggest weddings in the last few years was when Kate Middleton married Prince William. I woke up early to watch and loved every minute of it.

Wedding #2: A wedding is the focus of It Happened One Wedding by Julie James. In this laugh-out-loud, sexy contemporary romance, Sidney and Vaughn don’t get off on the right foot. In fact, their first meeting is the classic “meet cute goes wrong.” These two soon discover that they’ll be seeing a lot more of each other when her sister and his brother announce they’re getting married. Slowly but surely, their mutual dislike turns into something a whole lot hotter … and feels an awful lot like love.

Why Street Artists Make Good Heroes — Jamie Brenner Schools Us

BY , MAY 05, 2014 | PERMALINK

Have you heard people talking about street art and Banksy and wonder just what exactly is happening? Because we are right there with you. Generally we just nod and try to look smart. But today we’ve got Jamie Brenner, author of the upcoming, street art hero-starring Ruin Me, to tell us about this latest phenom and how it inspired her latest romance. School us, Jamie!

You might have heard the term “street artist” bandied around lately — in the news, in television shows, in movies. Yeah, it’s a “thing.”

The cover of Ruin Me

The first real street artist on my radar was the notorious British artist called Banksy. No one knows his true identity. I learned about him by watching the documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop, and I basically got obsessed. Here’s a guy who dashes around in the dark of night, painting the sides of buildings or creating “installations” to provoke and entertain people. He’s managed to sneak his art onto the walls of major museums. He has something to say, and he didn’t wait for the art establishment to give him permission to say it. (This past fall, he spent a month in New York and made his mark all over the city.)

Exclusive Excerpt: Push by Claire Wallis

BY , APRIL 29, 2014 | PERMALINK

Listen, we get a lot of pitches for book coverage here at RT, so it can be hard to really snag our attention. But when this email came in, proclaiming Claire Wallis's New Adult Push to be "Gone Girl meets Beautiful Disaster" well, we had to know more. (This is why our TBR piles are always out of control.) We thought you might be similarly intrigued, so we asked the nice folks at Harlequin to provide you with a sneak peek. 

The cover of Push

I open the rest of the boxes in the living room and finish filling the bookcase with my favorite novels and some college textbooks I can't bear to part with. David is still working in the kitchen when the door buzzer rings.

"Ah," he says. "That'll be the cupboards then. Would you mind letting them in? I've got my hands full of spackle in here."
