Smashwords Interview

What is your e-reading device of choice?
Kindle.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
No one technique. I have found my marketing success has as much to do with the venue as it does the method of marketing. Certain newsletters yield very good success while others don't. Some online book tours are fabulous and others not so fabulous. I think marketing success has as much to do with targeting the audience as it does the delivery.

Smashwords book reviews by Tarah Scott

  • Moons' Kiss on June 27, 2012
    (no rating)
    A rare find that reminds me why I love reading. There are loads of different kinds of sci-fi to choose from--from hard sci-fi to far away alien cultures that stretch the imagination. But Moon's Kiss is one of those rare, mainstream science fiction novels that takes us into a reality not quite our own--but one that so easily could be ours. Manerra, the young man who would choose almost any fate except that which is his: to rule. His brother Aya, another son of the gods, who knows his people stand on the brink of a change that even he can barely conceive of. And Kayarra, the "demon" who very well may decide the fate of an entire people, despite his efforts to the contrary. I won't give away any spoilers as that would ruin the joy of reading this story, but I can say that from the tender moments of unfulfilled love to riots that threatened to topple a city, this book grips the reader and just doesn't let go.
