August is Romance Awareness Month

August is Romance Awareness Month

Since the beginning of time, romance has always been an extremely important part of love and relationships. While women have always wanted just a little more romance in their relationships, men seem to be always looking for the “little” something that will make a “big” difference to the “love” of their life.

Four simple things you can do to enhance the romance:

  1. Say “I Love You”
  2. Give him or her a “Sensual” kiss
  3. Give your significant other a “Hug”
  4. Try “Holding” hands in public

Here’s a “novel” idea to rekindle the passion.

“Read Romance Stories to Each Other”

You can cuddle up in bed in “sexy” lingerie (or in your birthday suit) and take turns reading the story.  This may turn you on, so you might want to re-enact the love scenes after you’ve finished reading.

Now is a great time to catch up on some reading—together. And there is a wide selection of romance (and erotic) novels that are available, depending on how hot and steamy you want to get.

P.S. Adding a “single” red rose and a “sexy” handwritten note will take you from passionate to breathtaking.

  

How’s that “idea” for a little something “off the beaten” path?

Cheryl Holloway on Copyright Basics for Writers

Banner Header_2016

Google News          Fox News Logo

Copyright Basics for Writers

On Friday, I taught a Creative Writing Class for 15 new writers.  Some of the information we discussed was copyrighting your work. Since most of them did not know the copyright basics, today I am going to discuss it with my blog readers and fans.

What Is A Copyright?

According to U.S. Code and the website www.copyright.gov, Copyright is a form of protection provided by the laws of the United States (title 17, U.S. Code) to the authors of “original works of authorship,” including literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, and certain other intellectual works. This protection is available to both published and unpublished works.

“Original works of ownership” include literary works—a written piece of art—such as a book, a poem, a short story, or an article, etc.

The Copyright should include the following:

  • The copyright symbol,
  • Followed by the copyright year,
  • Followed by the author who created the work and who is responsible for and who is the owner of the copyright,
  • Followed by the phrase, “All Rights Reserved”

Published Example: © 2017 Cheryl Holloway All Rights Reserved.

Unpublished Example: Unpublished Work © 2017 Jane Doe

It is illegal for anyone to violate any of the rights provided by the copyright law to the owner of the copyright.

Copyright Theft

The reason you will copyright your writing is that you do not want anyone to copy your “work” without your permission and steal it. In this day and digital age, there are many possible ways to copy your work—both in the U.S. and in foreign countries.  So, protect your writing from plagiarism by using the copyright law.

Keep in mind, plagiarism occurs when a writer duplicates another writer’s language or ideas and then calls the work his or her own. Copyright laws protect writers’ words as their legal property.

There are two ways to copyright your literary work:

  1. Copyright Registration with the Copyright Office using Form TX (Registration establishes a public record of the copyright claim.) There is a Filing Fee ($35). For general/updated information about copyright, call the Copyright Public Information Office at (202) 707-3000 or 1-877-476-0778 Toll Free.
  2. Poor Man’s Copyright is a method of using registered dating by the postal service, a notary public or other highly trusted source to date intellectual property, thereby helping to establish that the material has been in one’s possession since a particular time. (Email me and I can send specific instructions.) No Fee

I hope this short blog post helped you better understand the Copyright Basics.

Five Essentials of An Author Website by Cheryl Holloway

Banner Header_2016

Google NewsFox News Logo

Five Essentials of An Author Website

Since I wrote the last article on Author Websites, many authors have written me and asked the question, ‘What Are The Essentials of An Author Website?’ So, today, I’m going to answer that question to the best of my ability.

  1. Think About the future of your website

Think ‘Big’ and act like you’re already famous. I can’t remember who said this, but the idea stuck in my head.  I know, as a new author, you may be on a limited budget, but think about the future. Do not limit the design. I suggest getting a website with yourauthorname.com or if someone has your domain name, get yourauthorname.net (like I did).

You can also use a free domain, such as yourname.wordpress.com. Or use a free website, such as wix.com

I suggest that most writers do as I did and do it right from the beginning by hiring a web designer and put your best foot forward. Remember, you only get one first impression. I advise you to have one page done right and you can expand it later, once you start selling books. Brand yourself and make your website and blog look alike, so readers can recognize you.  All of this means something to the reader—you look consistent and you look professional.

  1. Your Book Cover is Extremely Important

Make sure your book cover is done by a professional graphic designer. Do not try to do it yourself, unless you are a graphic designer. The cover will define your brand as an author. It will be the primary visual brand for your readers to identify you. You must put your professional foot forward. Do not ask your niece, nephew or grandson to design it.  Pay hard-earned money to have your book cover designed. There is no exception to this rule!

  1. Make Sure Your Website is Mobile Friendly

Today, most people use their phone to google an author, then they check out your website on their laptop. A few readers may even use their PC, but be prepared and make sure that your website looks good on any of their devices. Check mine out. This isn’t hard to do for a professional web designer, and they can do it fast. So, once again, get it done right!

  1. Your Author Website is not a Catch-all

Your website should target only readers of your books. Do not mix your passion for crocheting with your books. Get a separate website for your crocheting. So, your author website needs to remain true to your goal—your books and nothing else.

The only exception to this is if you write in two very different genres, such as Mystery/Thriller and Romance, or if you write under two different pen names, then you will need two separate websites. Of course, you can always provide a link between the two websites. Keep your author website just that—an author website—preferably for one genre.

  1. Your Author Website is there to Connect with Your Readers

This author website says it all.

The main purpose of your Author Website is to connect with your Reader Fans. Do I need to repeat that? The main purpose of your Author Website is to connect with your Reader Fans.

First and foremost, your Reader Fans need a way to contact you. I have my email address pasted all over my website and my blog. You can easily contact me with my easy author email address. AuthorCherylHolloway@gmail.com Do not use cute email addresses, such as. Pookie52190@yahoo.com or Twinkletoes15@hotmail.com. Your readers are not going to remember the cute email address. Personally, my pet peeve is a website where I send the author an email, never knowing whether they will answer it in the next 90 days or not. I suggest using an email address that the Reader Fan can easily contact  you. Use one that you will check at least every 2 days. You can always say that you are in the middle of a big re-write and will get back to them in one week, but do so. Remember, your readers are your bread and butter. Treat them like family (or better!).

Second, you need to be able to contact your Reader Fans when you release your next book. You can contact them and tell about your New Book Launch. Better yet, you can send them a free or reduced price book and solicit book reviews on Book Launch Day. Most of the Reader Fans will buy your new book and those are easy sales that you made with just a few emails. You can sell hundreds of books this way. Plus, book sales and book reviews on Book Launch Day push you up on Amazon’s Bestseller List. This is a win-win situation.

And last, but not least, you don’t need to be a social media junkie to have a successful author website. Your author website can connect you to social media by having a link to your Facebook page and your Twitter page. You can make your website sharable to both Facebook and Twitter.

So, that’s my take on the five essentials of an Author website. Let me know what you think about the topic.

Seven Sentence Sunday with Cheryl Holloway

Banner Header_2016

Google NewsFox News Logo

Seven Sentence Sunday

Once Upon a Time

 

Most of my readers enjoy Seven Sentence Sunday and often request the short stories. 

I write a short story using only seven sentences. I also use this as a writing exercise in the writing workshops that I present. 

Note: According to USA Today, at least 22 people died and 59 were injured after a suicide bomber detonated an improvised explosive device at a concert by the American pop star Ariana Grande at the Manchester Arena in northwestern England on Monday night.

This is dedicated to those parents who lost their children in the bombing.

Title: The Death of A Child

There are no words on this earth that can describe how a parent feels when they have to experience the death of their child.

The age of the child does not matter—whether an infant, a small child or an adult child.

The fact of the matter remains that the child was a special part of the parent.

I think, the strongest love on this earth is the love that a parent holds so deeply in their heart for their child.

The mourning period varies according to the person who is grieving.

The love for the child will remain in the heart of the parent, until they meet again—in Heaven.

To my daughter, Nichelle, rest in heaven, until I join you—someday.

The End

 

Keep in mind that this is fiction. 🙂

“Hello, my name is James Patterson,” said the voice on the phone.

He continued before I could say a word.

“I know you never expected a call from me, as famous as I am, but I’ve been given your name, as someone who can help me write a book.”

He paused again, as if waiting on me to say something, but I was in total shock.

“Cheryl, I want to write my memoir and they said that you are the best writer/editor in the U.S.”

“I know how to write fiction, but I don’t know how to write about my life, so, can you help me?”

As I said, “Yes, I can,” I woke up.

The End

Cheryl Holloway Says, “An Author Website is Your Billboard to the World!”

Banner Header_2016Google NewsFox News Logo

A Billboard is For Everyone to See What You Have to Say!

An Author Website is Your Billboard to the World!

If you are an author who is serious about your writing career, especially about making it a business and writing more than one book, then you need a website, so you can keep in touch with your readers and they can keep in touch with you. So, if you are a serious author, there is a requirement for you to have a website, because it is your billboard to the world!

Even in this age of social media, having a website is really very important to an author. Yes, having a website is one of the key ways readers can find out about new books by an author. Facebook and Twitter accounts help readers find an author, but in terms of new book discovery, author websites are much more influential and provide author credibility.

Nowadays, if you want to find an author, readers will usually just google their name. When you type in the author name, his or her website is the first thing that pops up. The first result in a Google search is reason enough to have an author website.

This visibility is priceless!

Having your own author website also gives you the opportunity to capture reader’s name and email address, so you can begin building your mailing list for future book releases or to build a newsletter list. The mailing list is extremely important for any author, new or established.  Readers who give you their name and email address are telling you that they are interested in you as an author and want to read your books.

If you have an author website, you can tell your readers facts about yourself that they may be interested in, which are not included in your bio. This creates a bond and friendship between the author and the reader. Today, many readers want connectivity with authors who write books that they love and cherish.

In a future blog post, I will share more information on an author website—a free website versus a paid website. Also, I will share more information on an author website with or without a blog connected to the website.

Just a thought…Authors Need A Website.

Let me know what you think about this topic.

Cheryl Holloway on International Pay It Forward Day April 28, 2017

Banner Header_2016Google NewsFox News Logo

International Pay It Forward Day

Today is International Pay It Forward Day and I pay it forward 365 days a year. I am Cheryl Holloway, author and writer, and I am always in the Pay-It-Forward spirit of gratitude,

As most of you know, I have been paying it forward to other authors for well over a decade. I began to pay it forward with the internet radio show, Just About Books Talk Show, where I provided a one-hour live interview with authors about their books. I started the show in 2005 because I had a hard time getting the information out about my book, A Forgotten Negro League Star: A Personal Look at Al Burrows.

Then, I started my blog in 2013 to promote my romance books: Cougar Tales: Father and Son; Cougar Tales: The Italian Basketball Player; Cougar Tales: Jamaican Love; The Proposal: A Leap of Faith; and A Sisterhood of Women Living Life: A Short Story Collection Book 1.  So, once again I decided to pay it forward with Guest Author Interviews for any author from unknown Indie authors to well-known celebrity authors.

Of course, I wanted to make sure that I interviewed the originator of Pay-It-Forward and asked Catherine Ryan Hyde to be a Celebrity Guest Author on my blog. She agreed and the rest is history.

You can read Catherine Ryan Hyde’s interview here: http://www.cherylholloway.net/blog/2014/07/25/celebrity-guest-author-interview-catherine-ryan-hyde/

Remember: Every act of kindness creates a ripple effect that spreads from person to person with no end in sight.

So, on my blog, I “Pay it Forward” to other authors by spotlighting them with a Guest Author Interview. I only ask that they too “Pay It Forward” to any other author.

Seven Sentence Sunday with Cheryl Holloway

Seven Sentence Sunday

Once Upon a Time

 

Most of my readers enjoy Seven Sentence Sunday and often request the short stories. 

I write a short story using only seven sentences. I also use this as a writing exercise in the writing workshops that I present. 

Title: A Closer Relationship With My Father

The young man had gotten into serious trouble and was afraid that his father would be mad at him.

His father saw him upset and crying uncontrollably.

The young man knew that his father would be angry with him—again.

But instead, his father forgave him, and comforted him with a firm hug; after all they had been through a lot.

He put his arms around the young man and told him that they would work it out together.

His dad told him how much he loved him and the young man realized that he and his father now had a better loving and understanding relationship than he had ever imagined.
