I just love a wonderful review!! Thank you Ink & Quill Proofreading and M. Baldauf, editor

Little Sparrow, A Kiowa in Love
I’ve finished your book and really enjoyed it. I just loved the sense of family that transpired through it and the cultural side of it was fascinating too. I didn’t know much about the Native Americans and I thought it was really interesting to learn about their culture and traditions. You have a wonderful writing style that is easy and enjoyable to read. I just loved Grandfather who had me laughing out loud quite a few times. He really was wonderful. And the relationship between the cat and the dog was just magical. I just loved it. The cat was really a laugh. Your characters too are touching and real. Well done! I can’t wait to read the next one.

Ra Winter Writer

Free promotions are a way to connect with readers, and more importantly, to get reviews and feedback from the community. Reviews are hard to come by and are greatly appreciated. You can review my book on Amazon, (just click on my book link after you’ve read it), Goodreads or my Facebook page.

The Kiowa in Love Contemporary Series takes the reader on a trip through self-exploration, marrying the spirit of Native American culture with love and humor. Each book revolves around Grandfather, a long lost soul who wishes only the best for his granddaughters. He demands that his granddaughters honor themselves before finding love and fulfilling their destiny. Nevertheless, if you cannot find your Indian on your own, he will find it for you, whether you want him to, or not.

Here are the download links:

Little Sparrow, A Kiowa in Love
Painted Girl, A Kiowa in Love

Each book is rated 18+, very light sex scenes, nothing graphic, but a lot of adult humor.

I’m looking for some input from readers. I’ve had the first book, Little Sparrow, professionally proofread, so if you downloaded a previous copy, give this one a try. Amazon ‘fixed’ the color errors on my manuscript so now it should be scribble free. If you rated it before and would like to give it another go over, that would be great.

I’m thinking about changing my book cover on my second book, Painted Girl. Any thoughts on the cover would be appreciated.

Also, I might take both books down and put them up on Smashwords so this may be your last chance to get a free copy. It will depend on how things go. I’m lucky that I have constant Kindle Unlimited (KDP) sales. Thanks to everyone for that.

I hope you enjoy the books, if you do, again, please rate them on Amazon. I have no idea if you like my books, or not, unless they are rated. If you have any comments that you’d like to share, you can private message me here on my blog, at goodreads or at my author account, rsch881@gmail.com
Thanks for reading!

Ink and Quill Proofreading Services

I just received my proofread copy from The Ink and Quill Proofreading Services. If you are thinking about using a professional proofreader I would suggest contacting them.
I was very surprised at the turn around time. She offered in-line or comments, whichever was convenient for me. They were very fast and even though I have gone over my text three million times, she caught quit a few errors.
It was very easy too. I just uploaded my copy to google docs and they did the rest!
I am very pleased with their service and I recommend them to everyone.

Proof Reader, Editor, Copy Editor- What’s the Difference?

To all of us who are writing a book and thinking about hiring someone, here’s a cheat sheet for you.
Editor- An editor will change your text, looking for flow and readability. They cut your work down to the bare bones looking for inconsistencies and redundancies.
Proofreader- After the editor is finished- you send your book to a proofreader. Their job is to check for spelling and grammar.
Copy Editor- their job is specialized and they normally cost more. They will proofread your work checking for technical errors in your field of expertise. These editors are usually not for fiction works, unless as an example- your writing about the 13th century and want all of your facts correct.

On my first work I had a wonderful editor, M.F.Baldaulf. Lots of red squiggly lines but alas, I lost that copy. I just used a proofreader- Ink and Quill Proofreading Services. They were very fast and I’m happy with their work.
