Author Excerpts

In the spirit of spreading the indie author love, During the month of January (and maybe even beyond that) I’ll be posting excerpts of other authors work. If you’re interested in being featured then please send an excerpt between 500 – 1,000 words, an author bio, links where readers can buy your book, your website or blog link and, if you like, a book cover and/or short blurb about your book to Joleene (at)  Excerpts will be posted on a first come, first serve basis.

If you need some advice about how to choose your excerpt, Edie Ramer has a great article with plenty of advice that you should check out!

What genres am I accepting? Any genre, really. Though I write primarily paranormal romance/thrillers, I have a varied audience. Strong language, hot scenes, and violence are all accepted.

  1. Joleene, thanks for the shout out. You said this so concisely. I wrote a blog about DaSample that I haven’t posted yet, and now I can see that it’s way too wordy. lol

    • Thanks! It’s all that query letter training I underwent for three months. Glad the agony has contributed to something good 😉

  2. What can I say. You are a giver.

    Strong language, hot scenes and violence sound good to me, lol!!

  4. I’d join in if I wasn’t so bogged down with my own crap I can’t see straight. lol This is a great idea, Jo. I hope you and the other authors have lots of luck!

    • Ha ha! I know what you mean! There’s three weeks left on it, so if you get a chance I’d love to have an excerpt from you 🙂

  5. Hi Joleene,

    I had not noticed that you put a link into an email you sent me — My – I am impressed. I wish a Happy Easter and I will be talking with you soon.
