Book Reviews, Marketing, and an Interview with author and Night Owl reviewer T.C. Lo Tempio
So we said in our last blog, #3 in our series “A Complete Guide to Self-Publishing Your Book,” that we’d address the topic of editing. It turns out that’s not true. Why, you ask? Because writing about editing is almost as painful as the task itself! Honestly, we’ll touch on editing in our next blog, we promise! (Maybe.) In the meantime, we’ve decided to discuss something much cooler and more exciting.

How to Ace Your Acknowledgments, Back Matter & More
Happy Spring, readers! It’s been a long winter up here in the Northeast, with temperatures ranging all over the place lately. Just a few weeks ago we experienced a mid-February tease in which the temps climbed to the upper 60s, but then winter made a late reappearance and we were slammed with 22 inches of snow! Our fingers are finally defrosted enough to continue our blog series.
So here it is: the third step in our indie author self-publishing experience.

Whether you're seeking new beginnings or continuing down the same happy path that life has taken you thus far, we wish you all of the best for the New Year. While it's true that 2016 has been a tumultuous year for many, we would be remiss to watch the clock count down without looking back on some of the special moments the year brought, too.
Some wonderful talent left us this year. There were hard times, but there were good times, too. We hope that, even if you found yourself facing some challenges this year, you will be able to move forward in the new year with the good memories, and that any struggles you've faced can be transformed into learning experiences as to how we can all make 2017 and the years that follow as amazing as possible.
Welcome to Stingray City in Antigua! One of the places on this earth where the people are as friendly as the stingrays. That is, if you have squid to feed the stingrays! Local reports say that the island is beautiful, the people are really nice, and that the sun shines almost all of the time - not surprising for an island in the West Indies.
We all have one shot at this crazy life we are given, and we all seek enlightenment every day. “Carpe diem” comes to mind. We encourage you to write that book, take that long overdue vacation, take the kids to Disney, and live your life as you want to.
These honeymooners seem to be doing a really good job of just that.
We will be featured on Fussy Liberian this Saturday. Check out their awesome book deals and read on, friends!
We may be biased, but we’re also very excited to announce that we’ve just wrapped up our release of the Computer Love Inc. trilogy. It’s now available both as a paperback and in eBook format through Amazon, so if you’re looking for a series that you can enjoy from start to finish either as a paperback or on your Kindle, we invite you to check it out! Sci-fi thrillers make perfect fall books, so while the leaves change and your pumpkin spice coffee is brewing, it’s the ideal time to get cozy with a new story!
With the holidays approaching, we are also planning a Goodreads giveaway, so remember to keep checking back here, on our Goodreads page, and on Facebook for updates – especially if you’re interested in winning free author-signed copies...
