Tis’ the Season –

22 Nov

Blog Ad 4 Angie Skelhorn copy (1)

Christmas is just a few weeks away. The best selling time is between November 20 to December 26. I decided to run an array of ads for my paranormal, magic and realism book Several Ties and see how it goes. To expand the reach of my own websites and hopefully make a real impact I cast a wider net. So read on and find out about some of the best online promotion.

Fae Books http://Faebooks.com
I’m Loving Books Blog: http://www.imlovingbooks.com

I’m Loving Books provide you with stats of your ad’s activity you can analyze.

If you want to generate more sales, then I’ll suggest using http://Fiverr.com

I had prompt service ordering a Gig from paradon at Fiverr.
Pardon created a book promotion to Amazon Reviewers. She designed a permanent book-page for me with the sharing snippets (for facebook, twitter, diggs etc) that can be viewed here; http://bit.ly/186unJN

Fiverr – The World’s largest marketplace for services, starting at $5. Type in search book promotions and an array of sellers appear offering promotion on their social media, website, tweet and blog promotions pop up.

The seller requires some information to get started.
And a compelling pitch that show readers you have a fantastic story.

Example text for book promotion I’m running on Fiverr sellers blogs, tweets and social networks –

Coming Soon – At the Edge

17 Sep

ID-10029251

NEW BOOK coming from Angie Skelhorn. I’m delighted to announce my contemporary women’s fiction book At the Edge is accepted for publication by Eternal Press.
http://eternalpress.biz

What’s The Book About?

Carm a whole-some farm girl marries her first love, and then abandoned everything she knows. After six weeks of marriage, when a devastating storm kills her husband, she’s a widow. In a strange city, torn by her loss, young, scared and no resources she begins to live a life she wasn’t ready for. Her emotions extremely low, and to make it comfortable to live in her own skin she turns to drugs and alcohol to self medicate. She is pushed to the edge as her relationships become tremulous. Haunted by her deceased husband and an introduction to Gretchen, a witch becomes a blessing. Carm learns secrets about her past, present, future and potential.


“AT THE EDGE” – Real people developing relationships; while Carm is struggling to pick up the pieces after the death of her husband.

In this book I provide a unique insight into the drug world and mysticism – addiction and the belief that direct knowledge of ultimate reality is attainable through intuition and the unseen world.


Now Available – Severed Ties

By the use of divination and magic, some ties can never be severed.

In the beginning, by the light of the Full Moon, Frankie connects with Candice’s energy through dream time and witnesses her involvement in a terrifying act of violence. After receiving information from Sandra that their childhood friend is missing, they pack their bags and head to the inner city to find her.

Frankie, afraid for her own safety, has a chance encounter with a local named Calvin who is plugged into what’s happening. Using his workable ideas—as well as Frankie and Sandra consulting tarot, ordinary playing cards, astrology, and spell-casting—they set forth to free Candice from the dangerous situation she is in.

Gone, But Not Forgotten

20 Aug

11431155

One minute,

Alive and well.

The next,

physically gone…

Instantly –

You became long lost memories.

Your friends and family weren’t ready for this.

The air still,

The sun already hot,

We whispered our goodbyes,

and see you later,

me on my knees,

you stretched out in a casket.

Buried deep in the earth,

Born – Died,

Marks the resting place of the life you lived.

Staying strong for others,

Alone, I shed the tears,

It’s sad,

Watching your precious things,

Objects you cherished,

Dividing – Separating –

Vanish one by one.

On the Otherside

Your life continues,

You are still around and always near,

You are perfect again,

Smiling,

Knowing,

You will be forever happily thought of –

And,

In death and beyond,

Appreciated and Loved
