Regency Romance Wanted by Publisher
———————————–
Aspen Mountain Press launched its new Aurora Regency imprint on
October 15, 2010. Aurora Regency at Aspen Mountain Press is a line
devoted to Regency romance. Traditional Regency romances, as
exemplified by Georgette Heyer’s work, are first and foremost
historical fiction about a very specific (and short) era.

The Aurora Regency line is published by Aspen Mountain Press, a
royalty-paying e-publishing company. We do not charge fees for
set-up or charge for editing your story once it has been accepted
for publication. Our contracts request rights to the contracted
work, including digital and print formats as we will provide some
of our titles in print later this year. Aurora is looking for
well-researched Regency romances between 35,000 and 70,000 words,
although we will bend on the upper word limit if the story merits
it. For complete guidelines visit:

Allbooks Reviews INTERVIEW:
Please state your name and location. (city and State or Province, Country)
Crystal Marcos
Silverdale, WA

Tell us the title and publisher of your book:
BELLYACHE: A Delicious Tale
Cat Marcs Publishing

Tell us about yourself:
I have been a storyteller my entire life. Being the oldest of five children, I had a lot of entertaining to do. I am a member of SCBWI. I live on the Kitsap Peninsula in Washington State with my husband and our daughter, Kaylee. BELLYACHE: A Delicious Tale is my first book. To learn more about me and for fun writing activities visit my site http://www.CrystalMarcos.com

When was the book released?
June 15, 2010

Give us an overview of your book.
A lip-smacking, mouthwatering, absolutely delectable debut, BELLYACHE: A Delicious Tale by Crystal Marcos is a literary feast. In the vein of Roald Dahl’s best-loved adventures, Marcos offers a mystical, character driven escapade that intertwines strands of reality with a larger-than-life fantasy world. When Peter Fischer sets out to help his grandfather at Papa’s Sweet Shop, he will quickly learn that sneaking sweets and covering up his sugar-dusted tracks will have major consequences. As Peter is transported to a mysteriously delicious, faraway land, a curious people known as the Candonites, some of whom have no time for a non-Candonite, will teach Peter a lesson on what it means to be different and what it means to forgive.

What inspired you to write this book?
My love for children’s books and children has inspired me to write BELLYACHE: A Delicious Tale. I also thought about what books I really enjoyed and which ones stuck in my mind from childhood. Oddly enough, all those books featured food and treats. Yes, I have a sweet tooth. I thought about what I would want my children to read about someday and I wanted it to be something I felt comfortable with them reading. I wanted them to be transported into a place that was so fantastic that they would always remember it.

How is your book different from other books in this genre?
My book teaches life lessons with a giant dose of magical fun!

Where can people buy your book?
My book is available on Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, and for other locations visit http://www.CrystalMarcos.com

Are you working on another book? If so when do you expect it to be published?
I am excited to announce I am working on the sequel to BELLYACHE: A Delicious Tale due out next year.

If you self published, what advice can you give to fellow writers?
One big lesson I learned in publishing whether you are self published or traditionally published you have to market yourself and your book. No one will do it better than you. Online marketing a necessity in making people aware of what you do.

Can you share one of your marketing successes with us?
Book giveaways are an inexpensive successful marketing promotion.

How did you find Allbooks Reviews and what are you hoping for in your relationship with us?
I found Allbooks Reviews from another reputable reviewing site that listed trusted reviewers.

Was the low cost a surprise? What other things would you like Allbooks Reviews to offer writers?
Yes. It was a reasonable price to pay for what I received.

Thank you for this interview and best of luck with your book.
