Findley Family Video Publications Sampler One: Historical Fiction

sampler 1 historical

Have you ever wanted to dip into our fourteen historical fiction books but couldn’t decide which is right for you? Now you can “taste and see” anything from Ice Age times to the New Mexico territory. Some have romance, some have political intrigue, all have life and death struggles for what’s right. Sample chapters from all our historical fiction works, free, here on our blog!

Sneak a peek at historical fiction chapters spanning time from the Ice Age to the American frontier. 1. Even after he rescues a damsel in distress, Prince Tristan hasn’t quite arrived at happily ever after.  2. Widowed by the Civil War, northerner Carrie Wilkes needs to save her southern farm, but has she invited a traitor in as a hired man? 3. New Mexico territorial judge Bart Durant can’t face both an assassin and a mail order mistake. 4. A marriage of convenience might painfully distract Ham Jessup, or give him just the information he needs to save Texas. 5-9. Meet the builder who met Abraham, the dragonslayer who sat while Sargon attacked, the warrior with a secret weapon and weakness, the rebellious wife who became an advocate for women, and the peacemaker who wonders how much it will cost him to save the Hittite Empire. 10. Seventeen-year-old Hope rebels against an arranged marriage in Medieval England but must trust a disgraced crusader when her family disappears and everyone thinks she’s mad. 11-14. Benny Richardson works his way west through loss, hardship, and mysteries that sometimes include murder as he fights for his family, his friends, and his future.

What Is BookBub and Why Would You Care that We’re There?

new releases

BookBub is a site where people can find books — deals, sales, freebies — ebooks, specifically. Authors can place ads there and sometimes get a whole lot of sales. The ads can be expensive, but most people say they are worth it.

Recently, however, BookBub has introduced some free options for authors to get noticed. One is that we can now have an author profile, and have all our books listed on the site. I did that, and now you can find me, hubby, and Sophronia starting here: https://www.bookbub.com/authors/mary-c-findley

Here’s a screenshot of what part of my author page looks like.

You can search for any author you want on BookBub, and if he/she has an author profile you can follow that author. The cool part is that you will receive notices when that author publishes a new book. This year Findley Family Video Publications has already put out more than one title per month including updates and revised/expanded editions — and we are hard at work getting more new releases ready!

So here’s the great news: If you follow me at my BookBub author profile, you’ll be notified of each new release. And since it’s BookBub, you can browse a ton of authors and find your favorite or new favorite books. Please follow me there so you can see all we have to offer and tap into the power of BookBub, too!

Please follow me at BookBub, and let me know if you find more authors to love there!

For my fellow authors, here’s a how-to link to BookBub author profiles if you’d like to get one too. There is an approval process to go through. http://insights.bookbub.com/introducing-bookbub-author-profiles/

Premade Cover Sale! — Guest post by Jen Gentry

2451015_orig

Some of the most talented cover designers I have the privilege to know have come together for a great cause. They have donated several glorious pre-made book covers to help create scholarship money to assist aspiring indie authors to attend the upcoming Christian Indie Authors Conference. This is an excellent opportunity for Indie Authors to score a professional book cover at a very good cost and help a fellow Indie Author at the same time.


The sale is going on right now and ends on July 4th. The organizer Samantha Fury says they will be adding new covers daily until the sale is over.


I personally have enjoyed just looking through the wonderful selection of interesting, breathtaking, and artistic works on display. Anyone who purchases will be working directly with the designer to personalize each piece.


If you are looking for a cover for your own next masterpiece be sure to check out this book cover extravaganza.  Here is the link for the facebook event. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1594999634107302/
