Free Mentoring Session

Reminder! Free! Tonight! I’ll be doing a LIVE video mentoring system from 6-8pm EST at

 https://www.twitch.tv/lisasheaauthor

 – it’s free to participate. Ask me anything about writing, editing, book cover design, publishing, marketing, and more. You don’t need a video camera or microphone or anything – you just type your questions. This will be a test run for me to see if it’s an efficient way to help many writers at once. I also have free in-person seminars but I know many of you aren’t in Central Massachusetts to attend those. I’d love to hear any feedback or suggestions on this! And I hope to see you tonight as part of my test

Flustered Flamingo



Hurrah! My life has been so busy that my to-do list got away from me. I’ve FINALLY hit publish on book 10 in my cozy zoo mystery series. It should be live soon! Then I’ll need to re-edit all ten books to link properly to each other and to the full compilation. And then this series will be set, at least for this arc! One step at a time! If you haven’t read book 1 yet, it is FREE and here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B014GRKH0K/

What are you up to?



Writing & Cover Design Books FREE

For the next five days, I have put the first two books in my Author’s Essentials books FREE on Amazon. You can download these both wholly for free now. I suggest doing that before Amazon ends that free period.

Please share the news with any family and friends.

Here’s the link for book 1 on writing and designing the book: https://www.amazon.com/Writing-Designing-Successful-Book-Experienced-ebook/dp/B01MRRVFLB/

Here’s the link for book 2 on designing the cover:
https://www.amazon.com/Designing-Perfect-Book-Cover-Essentials-ebook/dp/B01N3QAT99/

I am doing this as part of a push to begin offering more services online. Up until now I’ve only helped people via the in-person library seminars. That is nice, but some people end up driving an hour or more each way to get to one. Also, there are many people who can’t attend due to scheduling issues or they are just too far away.

Here are the two options I’m trying out.

PATREON
First is Patreon. I will be offering various options here for readers to support my writing and for writers to get personalized one-on-one support with me, via email or phone or Skype, to make progress on their writing, publishing, and marketing. I’m new to Patreon, so please let me know if you use that or if you’re able to help me test it. I am still in the ‘review’ stage so all the options are not yet live.

TWITCH
Second is Twitch, which is a live video streaming service. You will be able to log on and watch me, live, as I talk about writing, editing, publishing, and marketing a book. You can type in questions live for me to answer right there for you. I’m new to Twitch, so I’d like some guinea pigs (ahem, writers) to test this out with me. Please let me know if you’re willing to give this a try!

My next free in-person seminar is this Tuesday, June 4th, 2019 at the Sutton MA library from 6-8pm. The focus of Tuesday’s seminar is on all forms of publishing. Traditional publishing. Small press publishing. Self-publishing. I’ll go step by step through screens to show how it works. Come on out if you’re free!

Let me know if you have any questions!

Diner Days are Here Again

Diner Days are Here Again

I’m so so thrilled! My audio narrator for my Asperger’s mystery series set in Worcester lunchcar diners just finished book 2. That book is Diner Days are Here Again. I had tears in my eyes laughing while listening to her reading! She did an awesome job. It should be live soon.

Book 1, Diner Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, is free in Kindle format. Let me know if you’d like a coupon to hear book 1 for free in audio!

I’d love one more review to reach 30 ratings!

New novel upcoming

War Boat is the story of John Thornton, a self-made wealthy young entrepreneur who inherits his ancient family shipyard in River Sunday, Maryland. To carry out a childhood promise he intends to find the local traitor who betrayed his grandfather’s ship, War Boat, to a 1941 U-Boat mass murder and sinking in the Atlantic. When he arrives in River Sunday, Thornton meets a feisty young archeologist, Clarissa Pebbles PhD. They uncover a long deserted camp of the pre-war German American Bund on land owned by the Henry business clan, who follow an ancient and violent Viking pagan religion. Unfazed by an attempt on his life, he and other shipyard friends uncover a mysterious shipwreck nearby and salvage clues of past Nazi terror. Thornton’s personal goals undergo radical change as he finds himself caring more for others, far more than he did as a cutthroat business success.
