Okay, fixing that problem between the blurbs and the covers was a lot of serious computer work. But I am happy to say that the book blurbs now accurately reflect the cover and the story for a better reader experience. (At least that was the goal.) I am still not totally confident marketing. It is definitely a process. I might be getting somewhere with it though. Check this out. Most of my author copies are here. There is a very serious satisfaction seeing my work in the real world. I love the digital world because it allows me to accomplish my goals, but this old school physical proof of hard work does something for me.
If you are new to the dream, welcome to my blog. Here, I post what's going on with my writing and the series saga Draoithe. When I was a kid, reading was the great escape. (I hated reading assignments, but let me loose in a library and you might never find me again.) Back then, the book and possibly the book jacket was all a reader had access to in order to learn about the author, the other works they produced, future books, etc. Little information could be had about plot twists, character development, or inspiration unless an interview was made available in a journal or newspaper. That is no longer the case. Especially for Independent Authors like me. I want my readers to ask the questions and offer the comments. So please Contact me! Often feedback adds to the story. (Shout out to the real life Frank Grimes! I love you lady.)
Since this is my blog, I would be terribly remiss if I did not plug my own work right? So Dream Therapy is coming out Jan. 30th Get it on preorder now and start reading as soon as it drops!
Jace Weda is an immortal bear shifter whose dream inversion gift has crippled his life. He is an accomplished pilot, but can’t handle the stress of driving a car. When he and his brother take a mission to hunt a rapist for Fox, his life changes drastically and leaving California for Draoithe in the summer of 2016 is the only solution to avoid disastrous blowback from a deadly enemy.
Living at Draoithe grants him a new perspective and an opportunity for a brand new life with therapy and counseling for the dream magic he was born with. It also brings an unexpected encounter with the deaf architectural design artist. One touch, and he is hooked. When he catches the contractor beating her, he loses his mind and beats the fool unconscious, but that is where his life gets complicated.
He wants the contractor's head, but taking care of the beautiful deaf designer takes precedence. When he learns that she is in trouble because of the work she did in designing his new home, he realizes that all his hope for something more with her could simply vanish like smoke on the wind. Jace must find a way to help the fiercely independent woman he desperately needs and keep her safe from the pitfalls of his world.
Here's the part where I tell you that I hope you will be like a dragon and fall into a great story! The front story is steamy, and the back story is getting really good. If you have no idea what I am talking about, then start with The Thread for free and find out. Visit Ophelia Kee and subscribe for a FREE short read to begin your journey into the Draoithe saga. I will try to give away a couple books on Amazon next month too, but be warned. It can get addictive. For Kindle Unlimited subscribers, the books are free, read away! (I know, I know. I swear by March that statement will be 100% true. Synner and Sainte will be fixed.)
It's Saturday in January. What are you doing reading this blog when you could really be reading a good book? No, seriously. Enjoy your weekend no matter what you do, but if you read, be kind and leave a review.
Welcome to Ophelia Kee Speaks. This is a blog chronicling my independent author walk. The journey into the dream has been a life-changing experience as I try to become a full-time writer and leave the professional world behind me. In my blog each day, you will find information on the ‘behind the scenes’ for writing contemporary adult fantasy fiction and paranormal romance stories set in the dream. I will speak on topics detailing with my writing, publishing, promotion, and marketing as well as social media dealing with my books, book trailers, book launches, book art, music, audio, and video, as well as shameless self-promotion. I am not an expert and am not claiming to be one. I am simply one writer offering a glimpse of my struggle to become a successful independent author. Thank you for considering my words.
