There’s a sale running at Kobo on books written by Canadian authors from June 27 through July 4. When you buy one book, you can buy a second for 50% off! The thirteen participating authors are:
Today’s the day so many Canadian indie authors have been waiting for! ACX is now open to authors in US, UK, Canada and Ireland. 🙂
ACX (Audiobook Creation Exchange) is a portal that helps indie authors create audiobooks of their work and distribute them. There are many many (many!) voice samples there from narrators all over the world, and you can request auditions – that’s when narrators read a sample of your book, so you can hear their interpretation of it. You can contract for the audiobook through ACX and once the book is done, distribute it to Amazon, Audible and iBooks.
ACX has a blog post today about this new opportunity for Canadian and Irish indies: you can find it right here.
There’s another Facebook party coming up, on March 8. This one will showcase the authors who participate in the Romance, Canadian Eh blog (where I blog on the 23rd of each month). I’m looking forward to getting to know more about my fellow authors there, especially as a number of us are attending the Romancing the Capital readers’ conference in April. As well as chat, there will also be prizes, of course.
I’ll be on at 8PM eastern. (Remember that the time changes early Sunday morning – it’s time to spring forward!) The Facebook event is right here. I hope to see you Sunday night!
Today, I’m visiting the joint blog of several Canadian authors, to talk about using Canadian settings in romance novels. I’ve done that twice in the past, and am going to do it again with a new series launching next year.
Come on over and say hello!
Edited to add – some people are having troubles getting a comment to stick at Romance Eh? Canadian Style (like me!) If that’s the case, leave your comment here, and I’ll count it in the giveaway. 🙂
