Monday Author Shout Out Day

Monday is quickly becoming my favorite day because of this special time where my friends and fellow writers tell everyone what they had come out last week, or have releasing this week.

Release date is one of the most important times for any author. And I love to share the excitement and joy with my friends. I also, like all of my readers, love the finding of a special book. I hope this blog unites both readers and writers on their quest.

So writers, tell us in a few sentences about what you have releasing, and make us want to read it--like right now. Yes, it help to have a link to where the reader can buy it.

Readers, leave us a comment if you have already read the work, or even a previous work by an author you recognize.

I look forward to the discussions today, and please tell your friends about this blog if you enjoy it.

  1. I am proud to announce that my novel, THE REJECTION LETTER, was released last week and is available on kindle

    and on smashwords

    Also, check my blog at for more information

    To someone else, the rejection letter might be perceived as a simple piece of correspondence. But when Amy, who suffers from bipolar disorder receives a form rejection letter from Edward, an agent she had an affair with at a recent convention, she takes the rejection as both personal and professional—in short—a declaration of war.

  2. Thanks for the opportunity to post and reach your readers and fans Beth!

    The skeptic in Nicholas believes Lena has lost her mind until he witnesses some unexplainable events and is forced to believe in her psychic abilities and his heart’s desire.

    As their sexual chemistry heats up, so do their guilt levels. Can they make their newfound relationship work, or will it be too late when the real killer comes calling for her?
