Two Book Release

23 Aug

Hello Bloggers! Update … Bookstore

three_king_promo

I’m escatic! Finally my two books have been released in print & digital. The digital price is 7.99 and the print price varies. Order now as by October the price will be 9.99 for digital and 17.99 for print, unless you are a library or store where you can order for a volume discount. The covers are beautiful and were done by Daniela Owergoor from Brasil. The page count and word count for both are similar at around 290 pages and 60K words. I suppose this feels comfortable for me in telling a story!

I’ll be working a stylist job and plan to begin more novels this October 1st. I kind of miss the writing. The creation of it is the bomb, seriously. I hope you like the material I’ve put out there. The verdict of my writing is not in as yet. But for me it’s a masterpiece and see that’s a wonderful spot to be in. Liking your own stuff, well, that’s it, that’s life!

I created a new zine … that’s a small online paper for whatever you want it to be. Mine is thepearl.store and will be out 4-6X a year. I’m promoting others work and in the future more of my own. Win-win.

You’ll find my novels “Chocolate For Lilly” and “Three King Mackerel and a Mahi Mahi” here on Amazon

Please visit thepearl.store  as my blogging is done for now. My stories will be there on the zine along with others.

Into the Vines

26 Jan

by Kim Troike

 

This is the cover reveal for my novel “Into the Vines.”

 

I think it turned out perfect. It is up on Amazon for print and later will be available per e-book or kindle.

 

Have a look … Into the Vines on Amazon here.

 

 

The book synopsis is on the back cover and here is what it says:

Into the Vines is a novel of discovery, personal triumph and heroism. French Bleu, a vintage-jazz nightclub in Paris offers a reprieve to its inhabitants from death, illness and captivity. Olivier is a pilot who rescues stranded and desperate souls from famine and war torn areas of Africa, while Daniela, a young nurse, seeks that which is amiss in her own life. Brie, a strong woman, must find a destiny which awaits her own ambition. She celebrates a milestone birthday after encountering an illness, bringing grace and experience in her search for something more.

Daniela dreamed. “I want to be as confident as Brie on a sunny day in Savannah in the summertime” From the vineyard cooking school in the garden-like Loire Valley, where these three lives meet, to the streets of Paris, where fate brings blessings from angst and longing. This story revels in realism.

This sanctuary seemingly held an inspirational deity as they witnessed a spiritual unity on the Ceremonial Cliffs. Hawa dreams of flying a plane someday, while Francis possesses natural talents of the musical kind. Together they keep a secret for fear of retribution. “I heard LOVE lasts forever and my mom says there are all kinds of love. So maybe you should find another kind of love, since your first love lasted forever” said Francis.

Thank you for stopping by today. Of course, I’m very proud of myself and actually, it’s quite unbelievable! I think I’ve got this writing thing somewhat developed, and therefore may try to write another self-published novel for summer. You see, I’m quite goal oriented and probably have my mother or father or grandmother’s to thank for that. Maybe, it’s just being one of five and recording everything in my brain that later tries to retell it making new outcomes. I think it’s plain old creativity you are born with. Who knows?

Self-promotion is difficult but a must do for us Indie Authors. Period. I will post on Tuesdays something relevant to my novel on one of my blogs, which will make it to Twitter and Tumblr. Then, I’ll be hanging around on Fridays for fun! Please comment as I’d love to hear from readers, authors and others. 😉
