Multi-Cultural Fiction, Jamaica & Delaney Diamond

Monday, August 27, 2012


New week. New opportunities. I hope you’re off to a productive start.

Today, the Friendship-is-Forever Tour continues and I’m spending time with Delaney Diamond (a talented writer of multi-cultural love stories) where I’m talking a little bit about myself, as well as giving a snapshot of the racial make up of Jamaica’s people. Our motto-‘Out of Many, One People’-gives a broad hint as to the island’s ethnicity.  Hop on over for a chat with us.

The prequel to Distraction is free on Smashwords. You’ll find the link at Delaney’s blog.

Meantime, I’ve been reading some stuff on marketing and such. The links are below. Note that I am not endorsing the listed books. Although some of the stuff I’ve read in them makes sense, I don’t agree with some of the tactics I’ve read about in the first. Since I haven’t tried anything I’ve read as yet, I’ll hold off giving an opinion. 

How to Sell 100 Books a Day (haven’t seen any links on Amazon yet. The free report is written by the author of the book above)

  2. Thanks for the links, Joy. Sometimes I wonder about all the "how to" books... are they perhaps another way to get your money? :)

    1. I find that many of them contain the same information and some advocate doing things I wouldn't even think about doing.

  5. I think that Jasmine is making the wrong choice by dumping Xavier (that's where I am in the book). It's a good thing though that Milton doesn't notice her sneaking in so late at night after her hookup. If she goes with Xavier, she'll be a happier person. I don't think she owes Milton anything.

    1. Mike,
      It's hard to understand women isn't it. Many stay in a relationship thinking they're doing the right thing.

  7. Jamaica's motto echoes one of my favourite quotes which comes from Nelson Mandela: "In Africa there is a concept known as ubuntu - the profound sense that we are human only through the humanity of others; that if we are to accomplish anything in this world, it will in equal measure be due to the work and achievements of others."

    1. Michelle,
      I definitely agree with that sentiment and know that whatever success I achieve as a writer, it will be due in no small part to the people who give me hell over my characters, their stories and who also cheer when everything ties up into a finished product. Thanks for sharing that.
