Meet Indie Children’s Book Author Angel Krishna

I am an indie children’s book author, and I love it. My name is Angel Krishna, and I write children’s books. My latest release is Gabby’s Space Adventure, about a hippo who is determined to go into space.

Writing and publishing children’s books is a bit crazy and fun at the same time, if that makes sense. There is so much you have to consider when putting a book together, but most important is the word placement and grammar, punctuation, etc. … this is why I am so grateful for Candace Johnson. When she edited my children’s picture book she marked all errors with a note, stating the reason why something was incorrect so I could learn as well. Candace has been a huge help to indie authors! We all need a great editor, and she is it.

Previously I was with a publisher, but trust me, it’s not all that! I felt they didn’t work hard at all to promote me and my books. Really nothing was done! I was like, “This is crazy!” A huge percentage of my earnings were going to them, and they did not do a thing to market me. I know that as the author I have to promote myself, and I did and still do, but I got zero feedback and acknowledgment. So needless to say I went indie, and I love it.

I am currently with Bublish—they are pretty great! They have many tools to help you promote your brand. They also have many free webinars to build your knowledge. Bublish offers many services that may come in handy to help you with selling, tracking reader engagement, building your brand, improving discoverability, and learn social marketing—what a list! I hope you’ll check them out.

About that editing …

Wow! What a pleasure it is working with Candace Johnson. It’s always a bit nerve-racking giving your work to an editor, but Candace makes you feel so at ease and proud of what you’ve accomplished. I was so happy when my friend Christa Wojo introduced me to Candace. Now I have a new friend and a fantastic editor.

I’m so happy to be a part of Candace’s life and tell you how great she is and a little about myself. I hope to keep going forward in my venture and passion. As you know, writing and book promotion are hard and exhausting at times, but I usually take a breather and plop on the sofa with a big exhale, lol! Thanks for checking out my books, and I hope see you on social media!

If you’re a fan of paranormal romance, you’re in for a Friday-the-13th treat! Author Shonda Brock has released a new edition of her sizzling-hot paranormal romance, Eternal Traces, with a sexy new cover. (I’m still fanning myself over here.) I was lucky enough to edit Shonda’s second book, Eternal Burns, which will be out later this summer, and I am so excited to read this first book of the series!

As part of the publication celebration, Shonda is offering prizes (yay for prizes!), which we’ll get to in a moment, but first let me tell you about Eternal Traces: Continue reading “Ooh Là Là! Eternal Traces Is Here!”

Spend Today in the South of France: Christa Wojo's The Wrong David

the-wrong-david-kdp-cover-4I had the privilege of editing The Wrong David, a novella (or is it a long short story?) by the always-fascinating Christa Wojociechowski several months ago, and I was so excited to learn yesterday about its publication that I raced over to Amazon.com to purchase it—and I urge you to do the same.

Christa shares her experiences of tackling Amazon’s KDP and CreateSpace for the first time (spoiler: not as difficult as she feared), and if you’ve never uploaded a manuscript before, you’ll want to read her description of her journey to publishing.

And speaking of description—reading The Wrong David is like taking a minivacation to the south of France. Here’s a peek: Continue reading “Spend Today in the South of France: Christa Wojo's The Wrong David”
