Loss Leaders and Giveaways

Posted by:

What are loss leaders?  Can they help you?

In the self-publishing world (and in product sales in general), a loss leader is a product that you put out in front of people at a cheap price – sometimes at a loss to yourself, thus the term “loss” leader – which is meant to entice people into trying out the cheap one in favor of possibly purchasing the other products (in my case, books) that you publish later on.

This article discusses the ...

The Dying Times now for $0.99

Posted by:

You heard it right.  The Dying Times is now available for only 99 cents.  It’s the closest to a free sample of the series that I can drag myself kicking and screaming to accept.  I haven’t decided if I will leave it at that price forever or increase it again after The War of the Dead comes out.  Maybe it will depend on whether or not it sells well at this new price tag.  It has so far, but I’ll ...

Self-Publishing Book in the works?

Posted by:

I’ve started writing a few bits and pieces on a possible new book – a book about self-publishing.  It may become my first non-fiction piece.

Basically, it’s a book that shows you how to do the same thing that I do.  Well, I should say that it helps you publish your own book in print and distribute it.  I can’t really teach people how to write a good story.  That comes from somewhere deep inside.  I can, however, teach people how ...

Looking Towards the Future

Posted by:

As I have substantially passed the halfway mark in writing The Survivor Chronicles series, there is always forward looking to consider.  I can’t always write about zombies – well, I could, but I don’t want the stories to become stale or boring.  So, I have to consider what is next in store for your poor, fledgling writer.

I’ve been asked, but I can’t tell anyone the answer to the question, “Where will you go from here?”  It’s not because I am ...

Much has been said of my writing style

Posted by:

From several less-than-stellar reviews on Amazon, I can only gather that many people who are now reading The Dying Times are not checking out samples of the book prior to purchasing or not reading the samples available on Amazon.

At any rate, I want to say to anyone who might find this post:  please read the samples of anything you are considering buying, you’ll probably be happier with your purchases.  Now, onto the rest of the post.

I think that the chief ...

The War of the Dead Coming in February, 2011

Posted by:

The War of the Dead is coming out in the first week of February.  I am very excited about this second installment being released, and I hope the current fans of the series will enjoy it as much as – if not more than – the first book.  People have asked questions along the lines of “Why so fast?”, and all I can really say is that I don’t want to wait on each installment of the series to come ...

How PublishAmerica Works

Posted by:

Before I start explaining how PublishAmerica works, I must indicate now that I have never been an author held with their yoke or associated with them in any way.  This article is merely to serve as a warning to those considering PublishAmerica or any similar service.  (Note:  This is not a self-endorsement of any kind, either.  At the present time, Late Nite Books only publishes one author – Brian Kittrell.)

So, let’s get started, shall we?  Do you have the courage to walk ...
