4-Star Women's Fiction for only $1.99!
« on: May 03, 2010, 08:52:42 am »
Ovulation detectors. Hormone surges. Anxiety-ridden dreams. This is the world in which Annie Jacobs is thrust when she and her husband John receive a diagnosis of unexplained infertility. A 37-year old PR executive, Annie has wanted to be a mother since she first cuddled her Baby Tenderlove at age five. She is dreading another Christmas of relatives asking when they will be hearing the pitter patter of little feet, and Uncle Joe slapping John on the back, telling him to relax and take a cruise. Lots of people get pregnant on vacation, you know.

Across town, stay-at-home mom of two, Sarah Anderson, attempts grocery shopping with a toddler intent on hurling items from the cart at passersby. She notices a box of rice heading straight for a pink-babushkaed head. Leaping across the aisle, Sarah grabs it, saving the woman from certain doom, or at least a minor head injury. Little Alex screams at being thwarted. The unknowing octogenarian shakes her head and admonishes Sarah for not knowing how to keep her child quiet in public.

"A Whisper to a Scream" is the story of two women on opposite ends of the child-bearing spectrum who come to realize the grass is not necessarily greener on the other side of the fence. A vivid portrayal of contemporary marriage and its problems, the novel speaks to a longing in all of us, a yearning that might start as a vague notion, but eventually grows into an unbearable, vociferous cry.

Available in the Kindle Store.

    Hi Karen,

    Welcome to KindleBoards and congratulations on your book!

    We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Be sure to read the fine print below. Don't forget to bookmark this thread so you can update it.  Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, most of our authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows.  This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles!

    Thanks for being part of KindleBoards!  Feel free to PM us if you have any questions.

    The fine print:
    Please add to your existing book thread when you have news about your book rather than start a new one, it helps the members who are trying to follow you.  You may have a separate thread for each of your books.   We recommend you bookmark your post so that you can find it in the future.   ;) You may respond to all posts, but if there have been no member posts, we ask that you wait a week before "bumping" the thread by posting back-to-back posts of your own.  And we ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link.  Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead. All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum. From time to time our site rules may change; be sure to check Forum Decorum (https://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,36.0.html) for the current guidelines and rules. :D

    I have some news to share that I am kind of excited about.

    "A Whisper to a Scream" has been selected as the first featured book of the week on facebook's Breakout Books page. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Breakout-Books/118299388199910

    The interview is my first bit of publicity. I'm sure a lot of you who post on KB get this all of the time, but this is my first little interview as an author. I'm usually the one doing the questioning, so it was odd, yet cool at the same time.

    Oh, and congratulations on your book being the "first" featured book of the week on Facebook's Breakout Books page!

    You must be thrilled! An interview, no less!

    Keep us informed.

    And no, maybe some of the authors get this stuff a lot, but not me...  :'(

    (Well, guess I must join Facebook now.)

    Thanks, Nancy.

    I was a dinosaur, too, don't worry. Then I caved a few months ago and, truth be told, am having a great time on facebook. I have a personal page, on which I connected with people I haven't talked with since grammar school! And, don't worry, you can block people or not friend them if there is someone you would rather not talk with so you are not forced into dealing with a bad past breakup, as an example. Not that I have any of those... :) But I digress. I also have a page for "A Whisper to a Scream," to keep people informed on the latest happenings, etc. http://www.facebook.com/pages/A-Whisper-to-a-Scream-by-Karen-Berner/299878283817

    There are a few Kindle author sites on FB that are great promotional opportunities. Here are two.

    Check them out, if you are so inclined.

    Have fun,

    P.S. I tagged your book.

    Karen,

    I know you weren't talking to me, but I wanted to say thanks for the links to some Facebook pages for authors.  Awesome!

    I've been looking for more places to advertise.
