Minneapolis Authors Jennifer Rock and Michael Voss Announce Several Upcoming Local Events

B.S., IncorporatedAuthors Jennifer Rock and Michael Voss announced today that they will be holding several upcoming signing and discussion events in the Minneapolis area for their new book, B.S., Incorporated.
B.S., Incorporated is a funny, insightful, and heartfelt story that captures the humor and humanity of the 9-to-5 grind. It has been compared to The Office, The Devil Wears Prada, and Office Space.
Although it is a work of fiction, B.S., Incorporated draws from the authors’ real-life experiences. Jennifer Rock and Michael Voss have had the good fortune to work for and with companies that spanned industries and impact – from privately held start-ups to Fortune 50 powerhouses. One day, after yet another mind-numbing, daylong meeting about a project, they fled to a bar patio in the shadow of their company’s office building.  There, they drank to excess and swapped hilarious and heartbreaking tales about life in corporate America. At that point they realized they had a story—actually, many stories—worth telling, and they pinky swore that after sobering up, they’d write a book about their experiences.  In 2013, the Minneapolis-area natives struck out on their own to form the communication agency ROCKdotVOSS and write their debut novel B.S., Incorporated.
“Funny as hell, with sharp observations and cunning insights. It reads like the best happy-hour story you’ve ever heard.” – Matt Kramer, CEO, Saint Paul Area Chamber of Commerce
Jennifer and Michael will be at Eat My Words Bookstore on July 14, 2016 at 7:00pm. At 7:00pm on July 20, 2016, they will be at SubText Books.  Finally, they will be hosting an interactive event at Magers & Quinn Booksellers on August 4, 2016 at 7:00pm.  For more information and the locations of each of these stores, please visit their websites.
“Stop by any or all of these events, especially if you’ve had a long day at the office! We will read a little from our book, share some of the back stories that went into writing it, and encourage attendees to share their own hilarious and heartbreaking tales,” said Michael Voss. “We like to think of our book events as part entertainment, part workplace support group.”

Book Publicity Services Helps Authors Increase Their Amazon Reviews to Encourage Book Sales

authorIn the world of public relations, adding credibility to actions and announcements can make or break a campaign.  This is no less true in the realm of literary publicity.  One of the best ways to determine a book’s credibility is through the unbiased opinions of readers.
Book Publicity Services provides book reviewers with the opportunity to receive a free copy of their clients’ books in exchange for honest reviews.  Many of these reviewers write regularly on their own blogs or for larger outlets.  Regardless of their affiliations, Book Publicity Services asks each of these reviewers to not only publish their thoughts to their own websites, but on the books’ Amazon pages as well.
“An incredible number of people are ordering books from Amazon nowadays,” says CEO and Publicist, Kelsey McBride, “Our main goal is to generate as many book reviews on Amazon for our clients as possible. We have found that the more reviews you have, the more sales you’ll see.”
Social Media Manager and Publicity Assistant, Taylor Ytuarte, states, “Much of our daily lives and interests have become undeniably intertwined with online culture.  We receive world and national news, contact friends, and read reviews through the internet.  The best way to garner interest in these books and their amazing authors is to make information about them available through that medium.”
When booklovers seek out the newest and best in the book world, they often turn to the internet for guidance.  By utilizing Amazon, Book Publicity Services allows their authors books to be rated, ordered, and discounted all in the same place, making for a trustworthy and convenient vendor where authors can promote and offer their books to bibliophiles of all tastes in interests.
“As a first time author, I was very fortunate to be introduced to Kelsey McBride by an associate. With Kelsey’s great contacts and connections, she has gotten Moon Hoax into newspapers and magazines. For any author, getting reviews is the name of the game. Kelsey has put Moon Hoax into the right hands of quality reviewers who have taken the time to read the book and give an honest review. Not only have these reviews helped to spread the word on the book, they have also helped to increase sales. Kelsey also has set up multiple interviews, both in print and on radio. You cannot go wrong having Kelsey McBride on your team!” – Paul Gillebaard, author of Moon Hoax
“I highly recommend Kelsey and her team for your PR needs.  Kelsey secured many book reviews, blog opportunities, and promo spots for my book.   To my relief, Kelsey and her team also provided consistent social media management which gave me time back in my day to focus on my next book.  I will continue to use her services for my next books.” – Corine Dehghanpisheh, author of #BabyLove: My Social Life

Amazon Advertising – An Author’s Advantage

AmazonWith all of the advertising opportunities out there, it was only a matter of time until a retail website like Amazon got themselves a piece of the action.  Amazon currently offers a series of advertising opportunities to vendors of all kinds, but it’s their Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) Ads that we’re particularly interested in today – and you should be too if you have a book that needs some TLC.
The process is actually very simple and similar to Facebook advertising if you’re at all familiar with that process. They do have one stipulation. During the period in which you’ll be running your ad, you must be registered as a KDP Select author. What this entails is a contract with Kindle ensuring them that you will distribute your book exclusively through them for the duration of your membership.  Basically, you can’t sell your e-book anywhere else other than Amazon. Not on your website, not through Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, etc.  This sounds a bit limiting, but it’s not forever and you would be able to take full advantage of the KDP Ad program, which many authors have attributed to their increase in book sales. For more information on the benefits of being a KDP Select author, see our article at: http://www.kelseymcbridepr.com/the-benefits-of-kindle-unlimited/.
Should you choose to become a KDP Select author, a whole new range of possibilities open to you.  You can set up your ad with a $100 minimum and start promoting your book using targeted audiences by genre or product.  Let’s use that Grasshopper Tea Party example again. So you’ve written The Grasshopper’s Tea Party and are ready to advertise. You could select genres like picture books, nature, parenting, bugs, and/or specific products that are similar like The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Rainbow Fish, and Miss Spider’s Tea Party. People who have bought these items, anything like them, or have shown an interest by clicking on them would be targeted for an ad about The Grasshopper’s Tea Party.   The ad could show up in a few different places including the sidebar of a desktop on Amazon.com or on readers’ Kindles themselves either as a banner along the bottom, or as a screensaver.
Amazon provides you with a detailed report of your ad’s performance at the end of your campaign so you can decide from there if you could widen your audience, target it to a smaller group, or try something completely new! For more information about Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing Ads, visit: https://advertising.amazon.com/kindle-select-ads?ref_=gw-dt.  We’ve given you a lot to think about, I know, so take a moment, consider the options, and put those feelers out there!

Controversial New Bio/Thriller Reveals Major Connection to New York City Area

Code Name Papa Book CoverAfter a lifetime of working for a secret international covert group, John Murray finally reveals his journey with the help of his wife, Sharon, and co-writer, five-time author Abby Jones. His memoir, Code Name: Papa – My Extraordinary Life While Hiding in Plain Sight, details his leadership within an organization that, while not connected to the US government, operated with the full blessing of top people in our government. This book is the first in a planned trilogy that spans more than forty years of missions that could never happen in non-fiction.
Abby Jones is the author who worked with the Murrays on the book and official spokesperson of the trio. Jones states, “The book’s connection to New York City is very clear.  What we worry about the most is that readers from the tri-state area may attempt to locate Papa’s distinctive house which is north of the city.  To assign a place to the homestead for the book, we simply called it ‘Connecticut’.  We will say no more.”
In forty-three fast-paced chapters, readers will find out about a mission that until now “stayed in Vegas” involving a mass assassination at a popular Strip hotel, the reason why Ollie North is still alive and kicking (thanks to Papa), and the everyday stresses for Papa, his crew and their families that led to divorces, suicide, mysterious deaths and much more.   Meanwhile, the New York area mansion where all the missions were planned and the direct connection to NYC for funding is a great backdrop for events that go way beyond Bond and other fictional spies.  The book offers readers an inside look into what really happens deep undercover.
Amazon Reviews:
“I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in what really happens to bad people who threaten the safety and well being of our world. It was a page turner that I could hardly put down.”
“I typically do not take the time to write reviews. However, this book was so incredibly riveting that I felt compelled to let other Amazon members know that it’s an honest-to-goodness page turner. I can’t wait to see what happens next…hopefully a sequel and movie!”
“The story is riveting, once you start reading you won’t want to put it down! Learning about these undercover missions involving the cooperation of several nations is mind boggling.”
For the sake of their own safety and that of their loved ones, the writers have chosen to move forward in revealing this story under aliases.
A Vietnam vet, John Murray, later known as “Papa,” has spent the majority of his adult life working as an undercover agent for the U.S., Canadian and various European governments. During this time, he rose from agent to the head of US Operations. Now retired, he and his wife are living in a small rural Western town. As ‘normal’ as he tries to live, he will always be haunted by the visions of what he saw and what he tried to prevent or rectify. To learn more, please visit http://www.codenamepapa.com/

Lazlo’s Revenge by Glen Hierlmeier

Lazlo’s Revenge
Glen Hierlmeier’s latest historical romance novel, Lazlo’s Revenge, is the story of one woman’s adventure throughout Europe to uncover her parents’ pasts.  Stories of romance, war, and traumas both physical and emotional are unearthed as she traces their footsteps back to the major sites of World Wars I and II.
Lazlo’s Revenge follows Maxine “Max” Fischer, a writer and Swiss war correspondent, whose parents (Hank and Roberta Fischer, the main characters from Hierlmeier’s previous book, Honor and Innocence) lived through the tragedies of the Great World Wars.
In Lazlo’s Revenge, Max sets out on an adventure throughout Europe to uncover her parents’ pasts and see the very places where they survived on their odyssey to escape danger and death. Stories of romance, war, and traumas are unearthed as she traces their footsteps back to the major sites of World Wars I and II.
During her journey, Max becomes fascinated by the people who influenced her parents’ lives. She follows the life and times of Lazlo Floznik, the man who saved her parents and helped them escape catastrophe in Europe by seeking out refuge beyond the reach of the security forces that sought to imprison them.  The years leading up to World War I, the time between the wars, and the experiences of World War II reveal their secrets as Max explores her family roots, in this deeply emotional story tied together by Lazlo’s intense story of love, and that of his father, Miklos, before him.

 

Praise:
Any reader who enjoys historical fiction, romance, war stories, and stories with action and adventure, should definitely give Lazlo’s Revenge a read. I am pleased to be able to recommend this book to any such reader. I am also looking forward to reading more from the promising author, Glen Hierlmeier, as soon as I possibly can!” – 4 Stars, Reviewed by Tracy A. Fischer for Readers’ Favorite
“With deft skill often found in good fiction, Heirlmeier masterfully creates a sweeping epic anchored by strong characters. The accurate and poignant historical references are sure to delight any historical reader.” – 4 Stars, Red City Review

 

Excerpt:
Chapter 1: Bukovina
 
August 1914
Czernovitz, Bukovina
Austro-Hungarian Empire

 

Miklos Floznik
I approached the first houses, gasping for breath, horrified to see the destruction being wrought by round upon round of artillery fusillades. There was no cover to be found. Dazed, I continued running, desperately trying to save myself. I passed perhaps a dozen or more homes laid nearly flat. Mutilated bodies lying all about and the wounded wailing like nothing I had ever heard. As I neared the outskirts of the city, the shelling began again as suddenly as it had stopped. Cannonade pounded in the distance. The earth trembled ferociously at my feet. Turning a corner behind what still stood of the only remaining wall of a large stone building, another round of explosions pounded the city as I leaped down into a now-exposed basement filled with debris from the collapsed upper floors—only one wall and half another standing. Hope drained from me. Each deafening blast shook my senses, sending shards of glass and cracking timbers high into the air with a sickening burst.
Darkness fell quickly in the gloomy gray of dark as I slipped over a broken wall of stones and fell into the pit of the decimated structure. I pushed tightly into a corner of what was once someone’s home, protected from the drenching rain by a small portion of what remained of a badly damaged wall hanging precariously overhead—a welcome but uncertain shelter in the midst of chaos. I pushed tightly back against the cold stone walls on either side, finding as much safety as possible against a new round of explosions that pounded above and around. Each blast shook the skeletal rubble of the house, wrenching stone and wood from tenuous perches and sending more flying debris into the desolate hole that would be their final resting place . . . and perhaps mine as well. I was trapped—I couldn’t move for fear of being crushed in that dreadful place or being shelled to death outside. I pulled my knees to my chin… all I could think to do was pray… and as I prayed… tears came but did not assuage my fear.
Mercifully, with the darkness, silence also descended—even warriors need their rest. Only screams of the wounded and desperate pleas of survivors who searched frantically through the rubble for lost loved ones pierced the cold, wet, bleak night. Soon, darkness also shrouded them in silence, all but the woeful cries of the dying calling out miserably in their hopeless plight—my hopelessness too, I thought. In my corner hideaway, I could see nothing but the black of night illuminated only by the flickering dance of fires burning what remained. I knew without seeing that only rubble lay before me, and there was no hope to be found.
Bombardment of the trenches and the city paved the way for the Russian ground troops, armored cars pulling cannons, and the dreaded Cossack horsemen. I knew they would come—surely, by morning they would come. Everything in their path would be destroyed, everyone who resisted would be killed, and all others would be taken prisoner. There was no doubt. It was their way— what Colonel Eduard Fischer and the Hungarian Army had come to Bukovina to prevent, what I bravely thought we could accomplish was lost. I had not even seen a Russian, but I knew there was no hope of saving anyone. The Kingdom of Bukovina was doomed, and surely none of Austria-Hungary would be safe. With the Hungarian Army defeated and the stronghold city of Czernovitz overrun, no one remained to save us. Even Colonel Fischer might be dead, leaving no leader to stand boldly and hold the remnant together.
In the barren darkness, my youthful excitement as a proud Hungarian soldier on a mission to save the Kingdom of Bukovina, and ultimately the empire, suddenly struck me as a foolish notion. Wearing my uniform once made me very proud, but now I was only frightened and angry. My comrades and I were assured that victory would quickly prevail, but war and death tragically became very real, fearful, foreboding, and final. I questioned myself: Was I a coward to run? Do I really know what bravery is? Do I really know what all these good people are dying for? Do I know what this war is all about? Do I even care about Jews? After all, these people in Bukovina are Jews, many of them. Are they worth the death of so many fresh, hopeful young Hungarian and Austrian men? Are they worth my life?
My head swirled with doubts. My heart ached for answers I didn’t have. Life became too real, too fast. My tortured mind flashed back to the wretched face of the too-young boy, dead in the trench, and the unknown soldier whose bloated corpse had lifted my escape. I sat in my wretched corner and questioned why I had come to such a place—why anyone would engage in such brutality.
Was this worth it… for them… for us… for anyone?
After being drenched for nearly all of three days, the rain finally stopped. The choking smell of charred remains of buildings, gunpowder, and the rotting dead hung heavily in the air. I wished for the rain again, to dilute the ghastly stench. Time slipped slowly by. The dying must have passed through death’s mercy in the eerie silence and the wounded attended to, for as I listened—no sound. Strange, I thought, that in the midst of all this evil, there should be silence. I knew it could not last. Fear grabbed my throat again. My impulse was to get up and go, take action, do something, anything, but my mind held me back—there was nowhere to go, no escape, no hope. The Russian Cossacks would be here by morning—nothing to do but hide and wait, then fight to my death, to salvage whatever honor there might be in resisting.
Below the woeful mute of night, I crouched and cowered. Shivering in fear, my mind drifted back to happier days in Budapest when, as a young boy, I…
Just then!  
Something fell on the far side of the rubble, sounding as if it came from behind the largest pile of debris—perhaps another dislodged stone. I leaned forward to hear and peered vainly into the darkness as my heart leaped in my chest and immense fear gripped me. The worst of my thoughts seized me—the Russians were coming in the night and rooting out survivors! Desperate, I slowly reached to my side, and silently drew out my pistol. Another sound. Someone was moving, and not more than ten meters from me.
I raised my pistol and aimed in the direction of the sounds, I was prepared to shoot anything on sight, at any slight movement—my hands trembled against the trigger. A faint light appeared, flickering behind the rubble, like the light of a small candle casting a very large, daunting shadow around me, barely visible as it slowly danced in the eerie candlelight, nearly scaring the life out of me as my finger tightened on the cold trigger.
Crying—quiet, sorrowful weeping—as if the person hidden by the pile of debris knew she had to be very quiet but could not help herself… clearly a woman, perhaps a very young woman, maybe just a girl. I was still… very still… and listened for perhaps fifteen or even twenty minutes, until the light wavered and died. The soft whimpering continued for a long, long time in the fearful dark that kept me huddled closely against the walls of my corner as though I wished to disappear in its grasp. I would wait. By the dim light of morning, I would see who my companion in that hellacious hole might be. Though I resisted, sometime later I dozed, exhausted, dreamily wishing for the safety of my home in Budapest.
I woke to the constant patter of a dreary rain as the breaking dawn cast a ghastly glow over the destruction strewn around and about me. My eyes fixed toward the sound and the light of a few hours earlier; I listened but… only quiet and stillness… no sound but the steady falling rain.

Controversial New Bio/Thriller Sheds Light on Covert Operations in US and Europe

Code Name Papa Book CoverAfter a lifetime of working for a secret international group, John Murray finally reveals his journey with the help of his wife, Sharon, and co-writer Abby. His memoir, Code Name: Papa – My Extraordinary Life While Hiding in Plain Sight, details his time within an organization that, while not connected to the US government, operated with the full blessing of top people in our government. This book is the first in a planned trilogy that spans over forty years of missions by John Murray, the men and women on his team, along with similar agencies supported by various governments across the globe.  To this day, the name of his agency has not been disclosed.
Abby Jones is the author who worked with the Murrays on the book and official spokesperson of the trio.  Jones states, “John Murray never expected to be telling his amazing story. He knows his life story will be controversial, but he also believes Americans and others have the right to know how our government and others operated for decades.  While the focus was on stabilizing the world and helping to hide embarrassing situations, the results were often mixed.  With most of those involved now gone, John believes readers should decide for themselves if they approve of these secretive missions or not.”
The book will be especially appealing to readers who need to be the know about our government and others.  In forty-three fast-paced chapters, readers will find out about a mission that until now “stayed in Vegas” involving a mass assassination at a popular Strip hotel, the reason why Ollie North is still alive and kicking (thanks to Papa), and the everyday stresses for Papa, his crew and their families that led to divorces, suicide, mysterious deaths and much more.
