I have good news this week too. I compiled a book of all of the articles I have written and published it. It is called Articles for the Mind. It consists of 58 short articles that are informative and sometimes advising, on the subjects of beauty, health, careers, education, family, pets, financial planning, frugal living, money, food, holidays, home, psychology, self-help, values, and writing. The book is grouped into chapters with those subjects as the chapter titles, so the book is easy to navigate and easy to find what you need. There is also a foreword, an afterword, and an about the author page. The cover is below:

Articles for the Mind - CreateSpace

It is published on Amazon (Kindle) and Smashwords. Eventually it will be available at Barnes & Noble (Nook), iBookstore, Sony, and Kobo. It will also eventually be published in print and available as a paperback at Amazon. I’m really happy that all of the valuable information in this book is available to the public. I hope the advice and information helps people.

Thank you for your support. It is because of you that I enjoy publishing books.

Book updates

I have some exciting news to report. I’ve been spending much more time on my books lately. One week ago, I republished my four books with Kindle Direct Publishing and Smashwords. I worked on the formatting all day for three days to improve the look and readability. I also designed new covers for some.

I also republished my books with CreateSpace as smaller-sized paperbacks with attractive interior and exterior styling. However, the paperbacks are not ready yet. I’ve been making edits to them to make sure they look great, and each edit delays the process by at least a day. Right now I’m waiting to hear back from the CreateSpace staff about the covers, because they did not come out the same as the document I uploaded.

But my ebooks are all set and live at Amazon and Smashwords. In the near future, my books will be available in paperback from Amazon, and at Barnes & Noble (Nook), Apple iBookstore, Sony, and Kobo. Below are pictures of the book covers and links to the books:

Have a wonderful day,

Autographed Books and Free Shipping!

Posted in Books tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , at 9:06 pm by Christine Rice

The blog tour may be over, but there is still a lot going on! The day after the last day of the tour, I was interviewed on A Blue Million Books by Amy Metz. Thanks, Amy! I have another interview coming up on October 1st – can you believe it’s October already?! – and I will let you know when it’s posted.

I now need to get back to working on my works-in-progress. I think I’ll add to Freedom from Fat after I finish writing this. Chronicles of a Troubled Girl is up next to be published. I also need to compile all of my articles into Articles for the Mind, hopefully by December.

Is anyone interested in an autographed paperback copy of Freelance Writing Guide? I can order you one, sign it, and mail it to you myself (shipping will be on me) for only the base retail price ($14.99). If you love paperbacks and want to learn all about starting a freelance writing career, this is a great opportunity. So far, there’s been mostly 5-star reviews!

You can let me know by commenting below or emailing me at: christine_rice@charter.net. Pretty soon I will have my own author email, since I have my own domain name now :)

Have a great night!

$5 paperback books

Posted in Books tagged , , , , at 9:37 pm by Christine Rice

Hello all!

I sold paperback copies of my books at a cafe from the end of February to the beginning of May and I have a few copies left over. I have 1 copy of Poetry for the Heart, 1 copy of Essays for the Soul, and 3 copies of My Not-So-Ordinary Life and they are only $5 each, which is 50% off the cover price. This is a great opportunity to get a copy of one of my books. Plus, I will ship them to you for Free! If you are interested, email me at christine_rice@charter.net with your mailing address and which book(s) you want. I will issue them according to whomever contacts me first. So if you’re interested, let me know right away, because there are not many copies left.

Thanks for your continued support in my writing!

Christine
