And here’s a puzzle piece of the cover that will be revealed by amazing bloggers on the 15th!

   puzzle piece

Publication Date: September 2, 2018

Genre: Paranormal crime fiction / Supernatural / mafia underworld

Publisher: KDP Select

 Synopsis:

Angel Svabodina is a rookie forensic anthropologist, enjoying the beginning of her new career. That joy comes crashing down when she figures out the skeleton she’s working on is not human and then it vanishes.

She throws herself fully into the case without thinking about the parties involved, a psychopomp associate, and paranormal mafia families made up of vampires and werewolves—or the consequences.

When she sees there’s no avoiding the inevitable, Angel has to suck it up and work with the werewolves to solve the case but can she trust them?

Werewolves and witches are in a centuries-old feud, but that doesn’t stop the shivers running down her spine from one wolf in particular. Rights and wrongs become blurred, as she is tormented by her past and accepting who she truly is while searching for the skeleton. What’s more, nothing comes for free, including information. To get what she needs from the werewolf don, Angel has to meet with the fae queen. Can she meet her without repercussions and solve the case?

Amazon – Has a fake cover 😉

Planning the #pages after the story’s done #endofthebooks #ebooks #socialmedialinks

I haven’t really done this before, well other than the –About the author section.

This time, I’m adding links to my other books. For this section, I added “Contemporary fiction” category and “fantasy and adventure” category.

So, I have the pop-up window on my site to sign-up for my newsletter and this time I’m adding a link to the newsletter as well. Let’s see if that works!

You guys know that I’m on social media and now the readers will have an easier time to connect with me by clicking on the links inside the ebook. They would have to do more work on the paperback copy though. 😉

I really should have added these pages before and I don’t know why I didn’t. Maybe it was because I didn’t feel awesome enough to say  – “Hey follow me!” Maybe it was because I thought a book should end with a short biography of me and that’s it. Maybe it was because I was shy. Maybe, I’m becoming less shy with more books that I write?

Now, I need to come up with a page of me asking for a review. How do I do it?

Does this work?

Note from the Author:

Thank you for joining me in reading about Angel Svabodina solving her first magickal case. I hope you enjoyed her journey into the world of mafia and the in-between.

If you loved the book and have a minute to spare, I would really appreciate a short review on the site where you bought the book. Your help in spreading the word is greatly appreciated. Reviews from readers like you make a huge difference to helping new readers find stories like The Scented Bones.

Thank you!

Angelina Kerner

The book is on Amazon, Kobo, and Barnes and Noble.

Stalk me on Social Media

What else do I need to add at the end of the book? Do I add the keywords for readers to use in their reviews? If I do, how? Do you guys like sharing first chapter of the next book in the series?

Until next time,

AK

Brainstorming when to #launch my #book #paranormalcrimefiction #publicationdate #coverreveal #Booktrailerreveal #booktour #editing #proofreading #betareading

Leave a comment Standard
  • 1 month for editing
  • 1 month for proofreading
  • 1 month for beta reading
  • 8 weeks to prepare for a cover reveal
  • 8 weeks to prepare for a book trailer reveal
  • 8 weeks to prepare for a book tour. So the book needs to be released during the book tour. Those dates needs to be checked with Shannon if they are available for the book tour and if not, add on a couple of weeks.

Today’s date is 4/24/2018

  • Editing may finish by 5/24/2018
  • Proofreading may finish by 6/24/2018
  • Beta reading may finish by 7/24/2018
  • Cover reveal may be good to do around 9/18/2018
  • Book trailer reveal may be good to do around 11/6/2018
  • Book tour may be good to do around 1/1/2019 – BAD!

By going in that order, my book doesn’t get published until January which is Christmas/ New Years/and other happy-joy-joy holidays which don’t work with a crime fiction novel.

Late September and October makes more sense. So, I need to rethink the timeline.

These dates may change if proofreading finishes in two weeks for instance and beta reading in two weeks. I only win a month and still get the book published in beginning of December! Still happy-joy-joy. HOWEVER, the case happens during Christmas so it may not necessarily be a bad thing…. BUT, the case happening during the holidays doesn’t really do anything for the case.

Today’s date is 4/24/2018

  • Editing may finish by 5/24/2018
  • Proofreading may finish by 6/24/2018
  • Beta reading may finish by 7/24/2018

Cover reveal and book trailer reveal don’t have to happen after beta reading. The important thing is to have the book cover and get Thomas working on the book trailer. To create a good book trailer, he needs to be able to read the editing and proofread book so I can send it to him around the same time as beta readers get it.

So, Today’s date is 4/24/2018

  • Editing may finish by 5/24/2018

What if give the same deadline for the cover? Or Finish cover by 6/1/2018 So, if I do 8 weeks to prepare for the cover reveal.

  • The cover reveal will be around 7/27/2018 around the time when beta readers finish reading the book and will hopefully provide small reviews that I can share with the book trailer reveal and the book tour.
  • Book trailer reveal may be good to do around 9/21/2018
  • Book tour may be good to do around 11/16/2018

HOWEVER

Finish Cover by 6/1 and having a cover reveal around 7/27 is a long time? I need to give Shannon 8 weeks notice for the cover reveal so what if I ask for a cover reveal to be around 6/15/2017. So, I need to tell Shannon about the cover reveal about 4/20/2018 and she’s at her own wedding at the moment!!! Anyway, I’ll try getting that date with Shannon (plus I have a killer idea for the cover reveal and the cover reveal needs to happen on a FRIDAY. If she takes to my idea when she comes back for that date, then we’re good for the plan!! *Evil plan.

So if we do cover reveal on 6/15 then we have 8 weeks for the book trailer.

  • Book trailer reveal may be good to do around 8/10/2018
  • Book tour may be good to do around 10/5/2018

So, its October for publication date! Good for mysteries and my book is a paranormal crime fiction.

This just took about two hours to figure out the publication date and it’s still not set in stone. HOWEVER, I like the final timeline and hopefully we can stick to it. ^_^ The book gets released a week or two before Halloween which is good. People are into mysteries and not reading thrillers yet or are and in the mood for a light mystery with mafia, vampires, and witches.

——

How do you choose a publication date? Do you base it around a holiday? Do you calculate the date? Do you just choose a random date? Do you think about book tours and how much notice you need to give? What does it take?

Until next time,

Brainstorming #keywords for my latest #book @kernerangelina

Leave a comment Standard

My latest book is a New Adult paranormal crime fiction.

  • Literature and fiction
  • Mystery
  • Suspense
  • Crime
  • Organized crime
  • Family saga
  • Mafia underworld
  • La Cosa Nostra
  • Metaphysical
  • Visionary
  • Supernatural

When do you start brainstorming keywords? Before you finish writing or after? If after you finish writing, is it during the editing phrase or when you’re setting up the book in Createspace or another company? Is there a time when it’s too late to set them and you’re stuck with basic keywords? 

Can you guys come up with more keywords for my book? Out of that list, what’s your favorite?

Until next time,

AK
