Subject: How To Build Your Author Brand & Have A Character Named After You

Dear Friend,

I hope the holiday period is treating you well! 

It's the lead up to Christmas, but it is also the lead up to the release of my latest book, the second novel in the Madeline Cain series, Madeline Cain: Adventures In Fashion. For this book launch I'm trying pre-orders for the first time, with the book on pre-order from this Friday Dec 12th, until it is release on Dec 29th.  So keep an eye out on the E-book Revolution blog for a post on the experience. 

Here's an preview of the cover for Madeline Cain: Adventures In Fashion, it's my favourite book cover so far!

** Have A Character Named After You**

As part of the pre-launch festivities, YOU could be in the running to have a character in the book named after you!

I will be drawing the winning name at random this Sunday the 14th of December, and if your name is picked you will receive a signed print copy of
Madeline Cain: Adventures In Fashion with you name in black and white as part of the character list. Who is this mystery character, you may ask? The character is a favoured buddy of Madeline, has a habit of using hashtags on Facebook and will be featuring more heavily in future books.

All you have to do to be in the running is sign up for the newsletter in the right hand side bar of the Madeline Cain website.

Plus, I am offering pre-release, review copies of Madeline Cain: Adventures In Fashion, to any Madeline Cain newsletter subscriber who reviews the first book in the series.

**3 Ways Indie Authors Can Use Skype **

The best thing about being an indie author is that your book is available across the world! But unfortunately, until teleporters are invented and we voluntarily agree to being broken down into itty-bitty particles and reassembled on the otherside of the world, actually connecting with readers face-to-face is still a big hurdle.

So in this vlog I cover three ways indie authors can use Skype to connect with readers.

Happy holidays and happy writing!



P.S. Sorry about the change in email address, Yahoo has a problem with my emails at the moment, so I've switched over to a more professional one. You can still get in touch with me though at my regular Yahoo email
