Path to Publication: Day 3

DAY 3 

Today I’m going to be writing my Author Bio, Dedication, Acknowledgement, and Blurb for the back cover.  For my Author Bio and Blub I post them on my personal FB to get feedback from my friends as well as other Author FB sites to get feedback.  While I will mark this off my To-Do List today, I will most likely be making tweaks on these for the next several days/weeks as I get feedback.

To know why I am self publishing, read my reasons here.

Things I did

Dedication: The person who inspired the story.

  • TO DR. TRAVIS JAQUESS

    FOR PROVING DREAMS DO COME TRUE.

    CONGRATS

    AND

    THANK YOU FOR THE INSPIRATION!

Acknowledgement: This is anyone who has helped me along my journey. I will try to think of everyone I can  right now, but as I continue this process I will include my cover artist, if someone helps me with my website, etc.  I will come back to this post and update as needed until I have the complete list.

  1. Awesome Husband
  2. Patient Children.
  3. Loving Family
  4. Great Pre-readers
  5. Crossroads Writing Group

Blurb for back cover

  • New York City transplant, Trevor Porter, returns home to Becton, Texas, after a thirteen-year absence only to find it decimated by an unknown illness. As the sick wait to join the growing pile of dead bodies, the survivors blame him for the outbreak. But why?
    He discovers an unknown son whose birth heralded the arrival of the poison infecting the small town. Trevor must walk a dark and narrow path if he’s going to bring justice to the residents of Becton and rid the town of poison once and for all. Will he succeed before becoming another victim?

Author Bio

  • Book Author Bio: JJ Liniger is the author of I Am Lucifer, a Christian historical fiction novel based on the fall of Satan, and the adult thriller Poisoned. JJ enjoys writing in multiple genres (thriller, romance, dystopian future, and young adult) which has lead her to indie publishing. She loves to read great books that allow her internal editor to become silent.  Coffee pumps through her body as much as blood. She works hard to perfect the ability to write in a noisy and often messy house.Find out more about JJ at journeywithjewels.wordpress.com and https://www.facebook.com/JJLiniger/.

  • Website Author Bio:JJ Liniger is the author of I Am Lucifer, a Christian historical fiction novel based on the fall of Satan, and the adult thriller Poisoned. JJ enjoys writing in multiple genres (thriller, romance, dystopian future, and young adult) which has lead her to indie publishing. She loves to read great books that allow her internal editor to become silent.  She works hard to perfect the ability to write in a noisy and often messy house.
    Her journey began with a desire to help other writers. To be approved as a Beta, JJ Liniger had to create a 5,000 word story. That flourished to writing 500,000 words in sixteen months. Storytelling became a passion she didn’t know she had. Since then, JJ has successfully completed two Nation Novel Writing Month projects and found writing quickly to be a better process than the two years it took her to complete her first novel.
    While JJ has lived in Texas and New Mexico, she made a home in Oklahoma with her husband and two kids. Family keeps her busy volunteering at school and church. Coffee pumps through her body as much as blood. She calls it her “happy juice” because it puts a smile on her face and keeps her from going to jail.
