Fundraising

So I was setting up a book signing this March when the man in charge of Half Price Books tells me I need to bring 100 book copies. Now you would think getting copies of my own book wouldn't be so hard, but yet it is.
Now understand I can get free audio books, which is what I planned to give away during the book signing, but apparently the author (a.k.a me) has to pay the same amount of money to buy a copy. Now I'm not sure how good you are at math but a Shiver and Fears book cost about $20, so... That's right $2000!
So here's the deal, do you want to help? Click >here< a help fund Shiver and Fear. If you can't fund share the news with ANYONE you know. Family, friends, enemies, teachers, neighbors anyone and everyone.Shiver and Fears needs all the help it can get.
No need to sit there and say "There's nothing I can do, so I can't get involved" or "I don't know much about Shiver and Fears to do anything," because believe me someone can always do something!

Shiver and Fears likes to shiver and fear

So when watching videos it's always good to watch a little fear. And since we work for kids, child fear is what we're after. Here is one that we've watched: Archie's Weird Mysteries Episode 7 Curse of the Mummy | Watch cartoons online, Watch anime online, English dub anime. Another show we watch is AAhhh Real monsters. Mostly because it's hard to find those Halloween cartoon specials and nothing attracts kids the most than a good cartoon.

No saying Steve Erkle and his evil puppet doesn't give chills, or even a good Goosebumps. Anything is better than The Simpsons and their Haunted Tree House stories... Just a little to much fear to idea a story.

What gives you shiver and fears?.. Well, besides us!

To Post or Not To Post


Watch this before you read
videoAs a writer it's good to hear from readers, even if  you're reading blogs. But it's hard to know what a person thinks if they never comment. Am I just wasting my time? Or is Shiver and Fears posts actually likable. Tell me what you think. Is there something you'd like to know? maybe add? or are you just plain annoyed? Brave up and let me know your thoughts.

not good enough for some people

   As an author you have to be ok to get complaints from fans. Just earlier this month I received a message from the winner of the Christmas give-a-way. He said Shiver and Fears was no good because of it technique of writing. The middle alignment and lack of paragraph made it a terrible book to read.
   Truth is he ordered my very first creation The Unlucky Charm. It was then all I was focused on was marketing my first book. I always dreamed to become famous, but never realized writing had so many rules:
  1. use paragraphs
  2. use left alignment
  3. use proper grammar
  4. use good font
  5. correct pucuation
and so on and so on...
It was around the point of The Beast Within the Bed I gave it a shot. Sure it's not hard when giving it a chance, but why have rules on how to write? I mean I understand we can't go all willy nilly with writing and type like: 'did You see. my Dog. "He whent that way!' But do you know hiring a proof reader or an editor isn't easy? We authors get paid after selling a book no after we make it. Editors, even marketers get paid before their job is done! so not fair.
   I'm an author, but I'm no pro. When I work on an audio book I have to let my narrator know to fix the story before reading it. The point is to give me a chance, you know what they say... "You can't judge a book by it's writing."

becoming a character

So the new book The Mummy's House is about a boy who keeps getting injured and ends up in the hands of a mummy. Right now we use the name Flint, but you could be the real character. All you have to do is send in your photo with your name and nick name. If you seem like the kind of fearing character we need for the story, you will be picked. There's not much to say about this contest. It's really simple send everything by email> shiverandfears@gmail.com  and title it Shiver and Fears Entry. 
It's always good to have new entries for our contests. Our last character entry was David as we entered him in Sibling Subtraction in the THAT'S MY TWIN contest.... No, he didn't have a twin, but that's the point of the contest. My question is: Will you be next?
