Dear dog and vampire fans! Carol McKibben is having a Snow Blood Launch Party and you're all invited!

Also, you'll be the first to see the cover reveal and get exclusive excerpts. Only if you join now...
Here's the blurb:
Discover the paranormal romance series of the first vampire as it continues with Season 2! Not just the usual vampire story … but one filled with twists, turns and suspense and told through the eyes of a kindred dog!
As dark forces close in on Brogio and his beloved children, the end of all vampires could come from a single blow at any moment.
When Kane sacrifices himself to save Snow Blood, the pack believes he is truly lost forever. After the devastating loss, a new ever-present threat of destruction surrounding Brogio, the original vampire, threatens his kindred.
While the pack stands guard watching for predators on the outskirts of Brogio’s winery estate, Snow Blood discovers Selene is keeping secrets from Brogio. This deception and Selene’s rapidly growing strength and independence could create a rift between the father of all vampires and his mate.
Snow Blood again helps hold their love together as he tries to protect them from the approaching evil. At the same time, Snow Blood suspects that Nova, the beautiful female wolf that attracts him in the forest, is part of a sinister plot to destroy his master … but he can’t resist her power over him.

Recently, we've been giving out ARC (Advanced Reader Copies) for Lovely: Elite Domes of Washington and my author was curious as to how she could give the ebook to readers willing to review the novel. Experienced book reviewers already know all this, but some of her friends are not so kindle or e-reader savvy.
Now, I have a kindle, so there is nothing easier for me to upload a PDF or .mobi files directly to my device. I can even convert PDF files to .mobi files during the process of sending it over. All I do is send it to my kindle email address. Below are instructions on how to do this. If you don't have a kindle, there is a video at the end of this post that might help you load into your Nook or Kobo e-reader.
After you set up permissions in the Amazon website you can email the file to your kindle. But first you have to know your kindle email and give your everyday @gmail.com, or whatever email you have, permissions to send to your kindle email. It's so simple there is no doubt in my mind why kindle is the best e-reader. Go to your Amazon account right now and then follow these instructions:
How to send a document to your Kindle:
Now, for those that don't have a kindle, it's going to take a little bit more..elbow grease and technical knowledge. Those that don't know what a thumb drive is should turn to a tech-savvy person to do this. However, I've given a video below that might help.

I get an "A" for effort and and a "D" for execution. Even when I do all my homework, research the editor, have the manuscript edited several times--like five to seven times (and I mean by different people)--I still have epic failures. What I mean by failures is something not life threatening.
Even after the book was gone through me, checked by the author, professionally edited, sent to beta-readers and reviewers, and then published my poor author called me in a panic saying a friend of hers caught TONS of errors while reading her book for review. Now, the thing to remember is:
1. Nobody died because your book has errors.
2. An error free book is so rare, there can't be more than 10 perfect books in the world in every language combined. Some of them probably burned along with Alexandria.
3. All of the other people did not care or say or think it necessary to report the errors because they enjoyed the book that much.
Does this mean I pitch copy editors and line editors to the side and say "Oh well!"--not going to happen. I will fix it. If the errors are more than 10% I will have a different editor go through the book again and republish it. If the errors are less than 10% then I will fix what we know, re-upload the book and move on.
There comes a point where perfection vs. time investment is unbalanced and not worth your thought. I have uploaded a book several times over the course of readers complaining about this "one thing" and am happy to do it, especially when a fan writes and points out a typo; even when it's only a missing period. I don't mind and that's the beauty of ebooks. It's worth the fix, but not the heart attack.
ACTION ITEM: Writers, please know that to err is human, but to not freak about errors in the manuscript, even big ones after publication, is Divine!
Each one of your fans is a unicorn.
"The only asset you can build on the Internet is the connection to people." - Seth Godin
He is so right. Without the internet, how could I reach so many people? Newspapers. Snail mail. Phones.
Things become less and more personal without the internet. Less because you can't reach that many people in a private setting immediately. More because you have to write to each individual one at a time or a small group at a time.
Action Item: Use the power of Facebook or email to write to one fan and thank them for following you. Tell them you appreciate their support.
My efforts are to make this a learning blog where writers can see the flip side of publishing. If you have comments that will improve your experience or have a certain topic you'd like discussed, please contact me through email - HERE.
