Novel sales stats for 2012

First off, Happy New Year 2013 to everyone and a big thank you to all those out there who bought/downloaded a copy of one of my novels. I thought I’d blog again this year about how many sales/free downloads my novels had this year. My marketing/promoting consisted mostly of using Twitter, Facebook groups/pages, joining up with a couple Christian author groups to Tweet, and going to message boards. I did some giveaways for ebooks, like on Librarything, and sent some personal acquaintances/relatives paperback copies of Times of Trouble (which actually did help some with visibility), along with a little more than a handful of review copies to a couple of … Continue reading

Next novel, Times of Trial, possible book cover

This is a possible cover to my next novel, Times of Trial, but it probably could use some tweaking or something altogether different. I could use some feedback if anyone’s willing to give me some. I would appreciate it.   The novel is a parallel novel to Times of Trouble. A preacher and his family, the Tyler’s,  have a church that is dying in Arizona, and they take care of the remaining senior saints, including the ones in nursing homes, etc. The remaining family, the White’s, leave the same church and head to Wyoming to live in a community that was originally started by Doomsday Preppers back in the early … Continue reading

Book Review from Christian Book Review

I received another book review, this one from Christian Book Review. They gave it 5 stars on Amazon, which is the non-spoiler version: Times of Trouble novel’s backdrop is on the End Times and all the other events leading to it. It is like a true story as most of the character sketches, circumstances, and plots are familiar and possible to happen in real life. Honestly, this is the very first Christian fiction novel I have read and reviewed and I appreciate Cliff Ball’s heart to keep on stressing and repeating the importance of God, Bible, prayer, salvation, church, fellowship, close family ties, purity before marriage, and honesty about the … Continue reading

More reviews & the Book trailer

Here is the book trailer I made for Times of Trouble. You do what you can afford…. And I received another review on Amazon, a 4 star: “scarily prophetic!April 16, 2012 By Dirtboy’s Girl Format:Kindle Edition|Amazon Verified Purchase The way Mr. Ball writes I wonder if he isn’t living as a fly on the wall in the White House. You meet the characters and can feel their joy and sadness, anger and frustration as he tells the story. There were points in the story where I found myself talking to my Kindle telling Brian what I thought he should do next. Fast paced story that has you reading until the … Continue reading

Interview on the Indie Book Spot

An Interview I had with the Indie Book Spot Cliff Ball, author of books such as The Usurper and Times of Trouble, talks about his approach to writing, his influences, and his plans for the future. Why do you write? Is it something you’ve always done, or always wanted to do? Or is it something that you started fairly recently? I write because it’s something that I feel like I need to do. I have lots of ideas that come to me, especially when I try to sleep, so I have to write whatever comes to me down before I forget it. I’ve been writing since I was 10 years … Continue reading

Reader Reviews for Times of Trouble

Here are the reviews of Times of Trouble that I have received so far, and is available on Amazon, B&N, Smashwords. Please feel free to share this with everyone. LaTawnia Kintz on her blog Though I found the book easy to read, I thought it could have used some more fleshing out. It’s a short book that can be easily read in a couple of hours. Cliff Ball has a writing style that works for him in writing first person point of view. That’s not an easy way to write. But, I would have liked to have seen more detail, filling in of spaces. Now the great thing about the … Continue reading
