We see it all. No one could make up some of what presses see. I have seen plagiarism, rude people, and unreal expectations. It becomes frustrating at times. I have enough pressure that I put on myself to deal with some things. My self imposed pressure is to sell books. No, I can't make people BUY, but it still is something we all, at JEA, take seriously. We truly want each author to sell as many books as possible. When we see sales, we get excited!
What sells a good book? I don't know, even after all this time. There is a lot of junk out there, and maybe that prevents sales. There is a lot of good writing out, and of course, that prevents sales. But what caused sales? Is it author branding? Maybe. Is it word-of-mouth? You bet. reviews? Sometimes. It's a lot of elements.
When you read a book and love it, tell others. That is all a press can ask. Let the author know. Fan letters are what fuel authors to write. If you haven't tried anything, here are a few books for fun. I can say this. Despite all of the above, we aim for good covers and some fantastic writing. IF a story isn't great to us, then we don't share it with you. Come on, make an author's day, get a book, and tell that author. It never gets old.

Writer don't get rich (automatically), but I have always wondered at those who chase the Big 5 endlessly, and who refuse to go with a small press. Jim Goforth and Mark Woods are two of our authors who are beginning to sell well. Neither have been able to buy a fancy mansion yet, but guess what? These writers know people are enjoying something that they have written, they do get paychecks, and they are "branding" their names. Maybe I am old fashioned, but I can't understand going for the "big win" without having first worked the trenches and learned the entire craft. I respect those who disagree. I am just pleased that people buy, read our authors, and enjoy some great stories. Isn't that what writing is really about? If our goal is to all land the Big 5 deals and be rich, then I think 99.99% are going to be waiting a very long time. Meanwhile, we think we have some books that are as good or better than what the biggest presses are releasing.
Hey Big 5! We think we can compete.
PLEBS (Jim Goforth)
Corey Somerset, Tim Hayworth and Lee Hunter have had one hell of a good night.
And it isn't over yet.
Celebrating their friend's birthday with drunken debauchery and intoxicated antics they've just stumbled through a mini-wave of mindless vandalism and though they've wandered far out of the realms of civilization they are keen to keep the party vibe going.
When they encounter a band of mysterious fugitive women who call a bizarre encampment deep in the woods their residence it appears a strong likelihood that continuing the party is on the cards.
But it won't come without a price.
The collective of unnerving lawless women are open to the suggestion but not without the threesome completing a request first, a seemingly straight forward barter proposition that will bring the boys face to face with something else that dwells in an unorthodox co-existence with the girls in the wilderness.
These are the Plebs and the shocking violent encounter the trio are unwittingly pitched into with these freakish feral fiends may be their first but it won't be the last.
As the shiftless young men become inextricably entwined and involved with the agenda driven dangerous women so too do their fates, with them unravelling killer secrets, duplicity, bloodshed and brutality along the way that encompasses not just them but more of their friends, new enemies and old enemies.
A simple night of bad decisions escalates and snowballs into an expedition of terror spanning all the way home and beyond with Corey and his friends engulfed in a nightmare where the lines between man and monster blur.
Depravity, death and destruction reign supreme and it isn't just the Plebs that want them all torn limb from limb.
