Smashwords book reviews by Naima Haviland

  • Smashwords Style Guide on Oct. 30, 2011
    (no rating)
    The Smashwords Style Guide is easy to read and understand. I use it often as a reference when I publish to Smashwords and have yet to find a question that the guide could not answer. Thanks for making publishing such a sweat-free experience!
  • Smashwords Book Marketing Guide on Oct. 30, 2011

    The Smashwords Marketing Guide contains great advice not only for marketing within Smashwords, but beyond the site and even in person-to-person real time. I have it downloaded to my Kindle so I can refer to it again and again. Thanks for writing this guide and the Style Guide and, in this way, helping writers like me get started on the right foot!
  • Let's Get Digital: How To Self-Publish, And Why You Should on Oct. 30, 2011

    Let's Get Digital is a handy, helpful reference. The info is of-the-moment, so you're getting news you can use NOW. The first section is a wide lens view of the current state of the book industry and while I had read this info elsewhere, it was spread across several blogs. The appeal of Let's Get Digital is that it gathers all this far flung info into one place. The next section deals with marketing your e-book through social networking channels; of particular use to me were the points on SN etiquette. I think of myself as quite polite in person, but the author alerted me to several internet faux pas I had either recently made or was about to make. The last portion consists of 30+ authors first-person accounts of their experiences with self-publishing and sales, which I found grounding and inspiring. This is a good book to read if you're starting to write your first book or if you've been trying to get your book published. It's also a good gift for someone who is at that point
  • The Song of the Sea on May 21, 2013

    I liked The Song of the Sea very much. The short story tells of a man who is the village eccentric. He gave up fishing as his livelihood because something terrible happened at sea that he won't talk about. The story is told by his caregiver and confidante. The Song of the Sea is a supernatural tale that has an old-fashioned feel to it but is simply told, without antiquated prose. I was hooked in from the very first page (no pun intended!) and found reading it an easy and entertaining little trip through fantasy. Mira Biella's imagery worked on my imagination. I could see what she described as if I was there, experiencing the action myself. I'm looking forward to reading more of her work.
