YouTube Review of Anatomy of a Darkened Heart!

Yesterday, Peter Clark the Writer left a magnificent YouTube review of Anatomy of a Darkened Heart. I’m so excited to share it with you! He even reads some of his favorite passages and lines, and see that in the background? That’s the wallpaper wrapping paper I used to send him his signed paperback. It’s pinned to his board! Coolest guy ever? I think so.

If you’ve read Anatomy of a Darkened Heart or if you’re interested in reading it, please pass on his video! Peter really covers the book and its many facets well. Thanks for watching!

Video Summary: Call for Notebooks & Litsy App Tour

Once a week I’m going to post the videos I published the week before so you can easily watch them without having to search YouTube. Here we go!

If you know someone who makes journals/notebooks or you make them yourself, watch this video to see how you can be featured on my site and social media posts. In short, I’m looking for a unique jewel/gem/crystal-themed notebook, and I want to promote all journal makers who submit an idea to me.

Ever heard of Litsy? It’s the latest book app and I’m addicted! Here are my thoughts on this up-and-coming app as well as an in-app tour.

Go Indie Now: The Latest Indie Trends

Indie is where you discover brave new adventures in creativity. My friend Joe Compton, author of Amongst the Killing and super fantastic supporter of all things indie, has started a website called Go Indie Now. It’s the place to be for live interviews, events, and more, all revolving around the latest in indie culture. Authors, musicians, movie producers, and loads of other indie artists are and will be featured constantly and consistently to give you your indie fix.

I was lucky enough to be featured on Go Indie Now’s very first podcast and YouTube video series! My chat with Joe was so much fun, you’ll feel like you’re sitting right there with us. Visit his video and comment so we can all discuss: https://youtu.be/taoN8PaU6Qg?t=48m53s. That link takes you right to my chat with Joe, but watch the whole video for more interviews, all so completely different: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=taoN8PaU6Qg&feature=youtu.be. Don’t feel like watching a video? You can listen to the podcast of our chat: http://goindienow.podbean.com/e/goindienow-episode-1-interview-with-christie-stratos/.

The next HUGE event is the weekend of April 8-10, when Go Indie Now will be having 72 hours of live coverage for the Brain to Books Cyber Convention. That’s 3 full days of interviews, chats, music, first-look book trailers, and all sorts of cutting edge things. Everyone will be talking about it, so be sure to stop by Go Indie Now’s site! I’ll be moderating a discussion between some amazing women in the publishing industry, and I’ll probably participate in more than one live event. Watch my blog for dates and times.

In the meantime, be sure to congratulate Joe on his wonderful support of all things indie!

LOCKE AND KEYE Update

I have a big ol’ update on Locke and Keye, the second book in the Dark Victoriana Collection, and it was too big to write! Instead, I’ve updated you in my latest video:

 

Locke and Keye Update!

I can’t believe how little I’ve told you about Locke and Keye, the second book in the Dark Victoriana Collection. Well, it’s time for a nice big update, including some secrets to look forward to. Shhhh… 😉

Anatomy of a Darkened Heart’s First Video Review!

I got my very first video review from fantastic horror author Rocky Rochford! My favorite suite of his works is the Don’t Turn Around trilogy, which can be found on Amazon as Wait and Bleed. Rocky also writes poetry, romance, and…well, just about everything! He’s quite a dark horse.

Special thanks to Rocky, of course, who read Anatomy of a Darkened Heart twice before giving it 5 stars and publishing his video review!

Belmar BookCon Year 2

Another successful year at Belmar BookCon! This was their second year, and it was my second year going. I will definitely go again and again. I’m sure someday it will end up being so huge that readers will overcrowd it – the authors deserve that. But for now, I’m lucky enough to be able to talk to each author and small press for a little while to get to know them and their work. It’s amazing to see the diversity of titles delivered through each stall’s books. I bought so many different genres!

Stay tuned for a chance to win THE MEMORY BOX by Eva Lesko Natiello, personalized to you by the author! You’ll also see more about these books in the future, most likely starting next year.
