Authors Need Independent Booksellers!
My local Annie's Book Stop in Salem, NH, just closed its doors. It was a sad day for me. It had become a second home. The owner Rose knew her customers and hand sold books she knew they'd like. She was also my first reader on occasion! That says quite a lot about how much I trusted Rose’s opinion.
Anyway, Strange Neighbors my first mass market paperback hit Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc. in May 2010. Book 2 in the series. The Werewolf Upstairs released Feb 1st, and I'd love to share the news with booksellers like Rose. Here's a press release. You can do me a solid by sending this to your local Indy bookseller, newspaper, or library.
Contact: Ashlyn Chase
For immediate release
Raymond, NH – Former nurse finds happiness writing romance novels.
Ashlyn Chase, after twenty years of nursing, decided to try her hand at writing fiction for modern women. While she learned the basics of writing a novel, Chase monitored her reading choices and found she liked reading the ‘hot stuff.’ As soon as she made that admission and stopped blushing, she thought she might try writing it. It took a while longer to discover her niche, but over-the-top, romantic comedy is her forte. “I don’t know where my wild ideas come from. Blame Thalia, the muse of comedy. I just have fun with them and am delighted when I can entertain others with my warped sense of humor. We can all use more laughter and love in our lives,” Chase said.
Her reviews have been consistently excellent, and her first mass market paperback, Strange Neighbors is garnering even more positive attention. Publisher’s Weekly wrote such a glowing review it caught the eye of a Hollywood Producer, who is considering the series! Book one has already been contracted for a Thai translation. She is confident that her second book in the series will fare very well too.
She quips, “If you think all romance novels are the same, try one of mine.” Readers appreciate her modern tongue-in-cheek dialogue and highly original story lines. Her books are geared toward adult women, but recent mail indicates more and more men are reading them too.
You may order her books from her publisher Sourcebooks or your usual distributor. Ashlyn Chase is happy to send promotional materials to libraries, bookstores or readers’ groups upon request. You can email her at firstname.lastname@example.org or send a note to: Ashlyn Chase, PO Box 270, Raymond, NH, 03077.
NOTE: In addition to being included in the weekly drawing, one lucky commenter on today's post will receive a copy of The Werewolf Upstairs.
