I am pleased to announce that my debut novel, Apollo’s Raven, is the winner of the BRONZE medal in the  Dan Poynter’s Global eBook Awards (GeBA) 2017 in the category of Fantasy/Historical. This is the first book in the Apollo’s Raven series.

 

If you haven’t read my novel yet, I invite you to do so. In celebration of my award, e-books have been reduced at all online sites to 99 cents through this weekend: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Kobo. For information on where to order the book, check my author website Books – Linnea.Tanner. And remember to leave a review on Amazon and Goodreads!

A heartfelt thanks to the judges over at Dan Poynter’s and the honor they have bestowed on me.

The Labyrinthine Journey Infographic

Eternal Atlantis

To introduce my new blog series, I’ve created an infographic. Thought it was time to do something different to present information. The infographic outlines Book 2 in the Servant of the Gods series and of the various places the reluctant hero Evan and his companions journey.

I quite like infographics, and the easy way information is presented. Though I must admit there’s nothing easy about designing and creating an infographic, unless you use a template.

What is ThunderClap?

Social media is a powerful tool that helps you to engage with other people. It becomes even more powerful when several people post at the same time. That is where Thunderclap comes in.

Thunderclap will publish the same post on your social media at the very same time as other supporters. This is an effective way to get the message out to as many people as possible. Aggregating the posts helps break through the “noise” of general news.

Kristin James, Narrator

I’m flying high with the quality of the narration by Kristin “KJ” James. She adeptly captures the voices of both the Celtic and Roman characters in Apollo’s Raven. It has been a real pleasure to collaborate with this talented narrator from the Nashville, TN area.

Kristin James, Narrator, Apollo’s Raven

Acting has always been KJ’s passion. Starting on the stage as early as preschool, she pursued her passion into college where she received a BA in Communication with a double emphasis in Theatre and Public Relations from Mississippi State University. After college she found herself more and more drawn to voice overs. Several classes, coaching sessions, seminars, research, and a closet-turned-studio later, she now records and produces Audio Books on a regular basis. She has also done several radio commercials for clients such as Advance Financial, TriStar Health, and GAC.

When she’s not recording in her booth, you’ll find her crocheting, playing video games, or running agility with her dogs. Learn more about KJ at her websiteFacebook and Twitter.

Q & A with Linnea Tanner

Introduction

It is with great pleasure to share my interview with Luciana Cavallero, an Australian Author and Historian, that was recently posted on her website. If you click below, you will find out more about what inspired me to write Apollo’s Raven.

Q & A with Linnea Tanner

Come and meet Linnea Tanner in an interview about her debut book Apollo’s Raven. In her novel, Linnea Tanner weaves Celtic tales of love, magic, adventure, betrayal and intrigue into historical fiction set in Ancient Rome and Britannia. (Click here to go to the interview)

Apollo’s Raven Newly Released

Apollo’s Raven New Release and Kirkus Review

I am excited to announce that Book 1: Apollo’s Raven was released on April 10 and a review  by Kirkus Reviews was recently published.

“A complex and promising start to a new fantasy series.” — Kirkus Reviews 

Click on the following to read the full review which provides an in-depth overview of the epic tale: APOLLO’S RAVEN

As a debut author, I’d love to hear your feedback on Apollo’s Raven and encourage you to write your honest review on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and/or Goodreads. This is one of the best ways to give your opinion about a book and at the same time give authors your feedback. It also serves as an important guide that readers can use to select their next book.

More information on giveaways and special deals on Apollo’s Raven in May are forthcoming on my author website http://linneatanner.com/.

Bublish Platform

Another platform that I have begun to use is Bublish which provides a dashboard for authors to create and publicize their books. What is most powerful about this platform is that authors can create what is called a “bubble” where they can publicly provide their insight on excerpts from their books. The following link is an example of a bubble that provides my insight on Chapter 1 of Apollo’s Raven bit.ly/2nVPL36 . In the future, I’ll create other bubbles that provide background as to why I wrote a scene in a certain way. The good news is the site is open to readers as well as authors.

Another powerful tool from Bublish is that authors can draft their next book directly into their system. The author can create a bubble that publicly displays an excerpt from a draft  to get comments from other authors and readers. The final plus is the final manuscript can be converted to epub to create an e-book, or downloaded in word or PDF format. The manuscript of Book 2: Empire’s Anvil has been transferred to this site, and I will be seeking comments on certain scenes in the future.

A new book trailer that my granddaughter, Maylin, created is now on Utube. She is the Celtic Warrior Princess in the video. Check it out by clicking here:  https://youtu.be/zJzqMvsNQ8E
