Make sure to copyright ALL of your titles! You can do so by visiting copyright.gov. The fee is only $35, and for a lifetime of protection for your precious work, it's well worth it! Once your application is approved, you'll receive a pretty slip of paper in the mail that you can hang and frame on your wall! ;)

I have found major success in publishing my books in audio format. Personally, I use acx.com and sell my titles exclusively through Amazon and Audible. Though it can be pricey having your work produced, the outcome is definitely worth it! Besides, most producers are open to negotiating--and you have to remember that you have to spend money to make money!
I have found great joy and freedom in traveling the world solo while writing. Not only have I published two books out of the country, I've also experienced diverse cultures and met new people who inspire my knack for storytelling.
During my five year long career as a full time author, I managed to become a kindle all star twice. Kindle All Star is a program that offers authors a bonus if their novels make it to the Top 100 books sold in the Amazon store. I would love to hit that mark again with my next book! Wouldn't you?

THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED "CAMERON 7" SPIN-OFF
Roxie, Magyc, Kwon, Diana and Rico are back in the highly anticipated spin off to “Cameron 7”!
Diana's entire life changed when she met Tariq Haddad aka Rico. With his suave demeanor and devilishly handsome looks, he was every girl's dream and every father's worst nightmare. Because he was a smooth-talking pimp, she knew the risk that came with getting involved with a man like him--and yet she still allowed him to pull her into his underworld...but now it may be too late for her to escape his deadly grasp.
Roxie was simply trying to move on with her life when Kwon came along and helped her get over a broken heart. Sweet, charming, and charismatic, he's seemingly a breath of fresh air and the exact opposite of her cheating no good ex, Magyc. Yet there's only one problem...Kwon is hiding a deep, dark secret. One that could potentially put her and her daughter's life in danger.
"Wife of a Misfit" is a rollicking ride full of drama, betrayal, and unexpected twists!

Personally, I like to use Createspace.com because the set up and ISBN are free. I also think its neat how they have free expanded distribution. Remember, you want your books available in every possible format, including audiobooks!

One thing I have always done and found quite useful is having a cover photo that broadcasts my brand. Whenever someone visits my personal Facebook page, fan page, or Twitter account they'll see my website and a few books as well. It's one of the easiest ways to advertise on social media without having to advertise! You can either design one yourself or pay a graphic designer to make a nice, eye-catching one for you.
I have found major success in redesigning or re-launching past books that have failed to take off the way that I wanted. Now that they have a more modern look and feel, sales have picked up tremendously! Don't be afraid to reinvent!
