Book Pleasures 1I am so happy that my new book is taking off on the good foot. It’s a little read, but it seems that it is doing big things, considering it went live 48 hours ago. I am ecstatic. When it comes to self-publishing, it is important to have content that people want to read; however, it is also important to have a book cover and title that pops out at you and grabs the attention of potential readers. It is also important that when you are setting your book up to sale on Amazon in particular, that you have the right category listing that your book fits in. And never stop promoting! (I just thought I’d throw in this little bit of “how-to” in this post, for those who are interested.) I never stop inspiring. Reach for the stars writers!

Here is a list of Sugarberry Press Book Pleasures that you can sink your teeth in. Some are little reads, two are novels for young adults, we have picture books for young readers and more. I, author Winona Rasheed has taken pleasure in creating all of them.

This coming from someone who should know better! Anyway, just in time for holiday shopping, I’ve added a handy-dandy link on my site to my Amazon store, where all of my ebooks and print books can be found, from romance novels to children’s books and parenting humor. Check them out and leave 5 Star reviews!

Making the top 100 list.

I am sitting here feeling giddy right now. I can’t believe it. My book is listed under the top one hundred list on amazon, under the category of educational and reference (see the link), coming in at 96 and it even has a 5 star rating. This has never ever happened so quickly before. I am amazed. I think this is a great book and I hope all new writers and anyone needing a little inspiration in their life will pick up this little read, and when you do….I hope you leave behind a little review. I love reviews just as much as I love creating books. Just thought I should say that. Guess what, you can get this little treasure of a book in time for Christmas. You already know that the eBook version will arrive instantly on your electronic device. But Santa can also bring it to your doorstep just in time. So think about it….then go to Amazon and click your heart out, for I have other books there too. Enjoy the read!


5 Star Review December 19, 2014

five star review 2

Wow! My new book, “Frankly Speaking,” was just listed on Amazon yesterday, which was Thursday, December 18. Today, December 19th, I find out that this inspirational book has received it’s first 5 star rating by a happy customer.  This news had made my day! I love when readers leave a review of of the book I created and enjoyed it. I sure hope that this book receives more 5 star ratings because it’s encouraging for other readers who are shopping around for something to read that is worthwhile.

Yes, I and the folks at Sugarberry Books, we approve this book!

Self-Publishing: Blessings and Woes

In the article Why You Need to Become an Independent Publisher, Geoff Livingston advocates writers to consider self-publishing; he also shares the valuable things that he has learned in the process. Livingston states that the trend of independent publishing is mainly due to “retaining artistic direction, a higher percentage of profits, and the increasing lack of editorial and marketing support offered by traditional publishing houses”. He offers suggestions on producing an outstanding manuscript and marketing the book after it has been published.

Meanwhile, Joe Belanger discusses the potential disadvantages of self-publishing in his article Self-publishing risks and rewards explored. He points out that independent publishing not only means that authors must be involved in the “creative aspect” of production, but they must also make “a series of business decisions”, which possibly takes up the time that could be spent writing and even leads to unwise decision making without seeking…
