Halloween IAP: Britnell Manor

Welcome to today's Halloween Indie Author Promotion!

Andrea Pearson -- Britnell Manor

Kindle, Nook, Smashwords

Q: What is Britnell Manor about?

Austin receives a photograph in the mail and quickly discovers that something about it isn’t quite right: every time he looks at it, there are changes.
And the changes aren’t good.

Loosely based off an MR James ghost story, Britnell Manor is a novelette in the Katon University First Year series. Will take about an hour to read.

Q: What movie rating would you give your story, and to which age group is it directed?

A: PG, to soft PG13. Readers 12 and older.

Q: What advice do you have for those wanting to self-publish?

A: Be as professional as possible: Hire editors and cover designers. You only have one chance at a first impression. If money is an issue, get a cheaper cell phone plan, drop Netflix/Dish/Cable TV and other luxuries. The more willing you are to sacrifice, the better things will work out for you.

Q: What has worked the best for you as an Indie author (when it comes to being successful)?

A: Leaving marketing behind and focusing on getting several eBooks up. THEN doing a few promotions here and there. Sales picked up fast once I had a few books out. I never really saw any change after a lot of marketing.
