Beauty of Fear available on Amazon!

There are positives and negatives to self-publishing.  The biggest positive is that you don’t have to deal with the rejection letters that often accompany your solicitations to publishing houses.  

Beauty of Fear on Amazon!

The negatives? Self promotion.  No agent or publishing company to do the marketing for you.  You have to: Word of mouth, rely on your friends, blogs, blog hopping, blog interviews, family, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, you name it, you have to do it.

Now, if you are lucky enough to join the right FB and Blog groups then you can expand your word of mouth promotion exponentially.  Add in other sites where you may write (for me its FanFiction) and that increases your potential audience.  I say potential because it doesn’t mean they’ll read it.

As a writer, you know darn well that if they would just read your work they’d be hooked. Right?  Its not always that simple though.  And then of course there are things like websites, SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and a minor thing called paying your dues.  

Oh yes, and lets not forget the value of a good book trailer…working on that now, along with the sequel to Beauty of Fear.  The working title is Silence of Fear.

I love to write, I love to teach.  Sometimes the greatest joy I get is from a writer who is stuck and needs to bounce ideas off of someone.  I like being that someone.  Keeps my mind flexible.

Anyway, back to the self promotion…If you read the book, please leave an interview.  If you don’t, I ask that you at least peek at the sample offered on the Amazon site.

Review for Beauty of Fear

5.0 out of 5 stars Beauty of Fear, December 28, 2012

This review is from: Beauty Of Fear (Kindle Edition)

I thoroughly enjoyed reading ‘Beauty of Fear. L.E. Perez captured the fear, the drama and the plight that the main character of Leigh faces and deals with. Also the undercurrent of confusion she feels for the strong gorgeous Jordan, and the intense handsome Rick. The pace is fast, exciting and electric which will capture and enthrall readers and leave them wanting more!

Ciao for now and ask yourself, have you read a good book lately?  If you haven’t, check out mine!
