Marketing Workshop for Writers by HM Ward

Are you frustrated trying to market your book? I know a lot of authors who are having issues getting eyes on their work. They feel so upset and defeated. Remember that everyone starts at the beginning. I sold 27 books my first month as an author.

Long story short, I’ve had hundred of writers ask me to make a course on MARKETING FOR WRITERS. That’s exactly what I did. Today is the official early launch day, so there are amazing discounts if you buy in the next 24 hours. How does 50% off sound? What about free digital downloads and worksheets?

NEW RELEASE! EASY by H.M. Ward (A Ferro Family Story)

EASY by H.M. Ward

THE SERIES WITH OVER 12 MILLION COPIES SOLD
Volume 1 in the new series by New York Times Bestselling Author H.M. Ward

My life is a lie. Terror courses through me at the thought of someone discovering my secret before I have a chance to figure things out, before I know for certain what happened that night. I can admit it, I ran like a coward and didn’t look back. No one expects me to be down here in the dust bowl of the forsaken, in the middle of Texas.

Three months have passed in startling silence since I left New York behind. There’s been no trace, no trail, nothing that points to this safe haven. Reporters haven’t figured out the girl they’ve been trailing in Manhattan isn’t me. Thank God.

Down here, I’ve kept my head down. No one knows what I’ve done. They can’t. But four simple words make my heart slam into my chest. The air is ripped from my lungs as I stare at the glowing computer screen.
I KNOW YOUR SECRET.

Happy reading! And yes! This is a FERRO STORY! 🙂

The Problem with Jon Ferro by HM Ward

H.M. Ward, Jonathan Ferro, Stripped 2, damaged, the arrangement, sean ferro, peter ferroIt’s become obvious that Jonathan Ferro is one of my favorite characters. It’s not because he’s hot, funny, proud, or cocky. It’s his heart.

The reader is introduced to a younger Jon in DAMAGED & THE ARRANGEMENT. We also get to meet him first hand as a recent high school graduate in STRIPPED. He’s an angry young man, but not for the reasons you’d think.

No one takes him seriously, so he no longer corrects the misconceptions of his behavior. He learned to laugh it off, to not take life seriously–on the outside. Beneath the surface there’s a storm brewing. He’s pissed at Sean for leaving, angry at Peter for running off, and he blames himself for the things that happened to him. All those facets lead to an arrogant young guy who thinks sex is game, something to be mastered. It’s not until he meets Cassie Hale that things start to shift.

Jon’s one of my favorite characters because he’s forced to radically change in a very short period of time. All of a sudden his brothers come back. Both of them. He’s already been warned by his mother and risks losing his inheritance. For a guy like Jon, a kid that’s been groomed to accept his fate in the Ferro clan from childhood, the threat of getting pushed out and cut off is severe. Add in the return of his brothers and it’s like pouring lemon juice on the situation.

Jon is a nuke waiting to explode and hides it by prancing around with a smile on his face and a pretty girl on his lap. His brothers don’t see the mask he’s wearing either. For all the good Sean tries to do, he missed this. Peter knows something’s up with his younger brother, but has no idea how deep it goes or what happened to him.

Jon is someone I would have treated the way Cassie did initially. Actually, that first meeting was based on a real event. You’re thinking, no teenager would say something like that. Yeah, I did. To a hot guy’s face. I was idealistic and didn’t like players. It never occurred to me at that age that there was more beneath the surface, that the player guise is a mask like any other. I saw and understood the pining emo or goth kid. The player was too loud and cocky, playing a game of chess to get into a girl’s pants while clanging bells. It was too much, so the guy’s words turned to noise. It made me wonder what would happen if a man went through life like that, and that’s what started my infatuation with Jonathan Ferro.

Jon was the carefree kid that had his innocence stolen. He’s the forgotten brother. He’s the man with the mask that won’t come off because it’s become part of him. And for Cassie, he’d do anything.

If you don’t know Jonathan Ferro, you’re missing out.

NEW RELEASE: THE ARRANGEMENT 23 (Series Finale) by HM Ward

THE ARRANGEMENT (Volume 23) – THE FINAL VOLUME in the New York Times Bestselling Arrangement Series

Hatred and insanity mingle together in this disgusting specimen of a human being that stands before me. I don’t know how I’ve wronged him or why I deserve this fate. My parents were slaughtered, my friends killed, and Sean Ferro was ripped from my side by this monster. The promise of picket fences and a little voice with tiny hands keeps me eerily sane. The ghosts of a future that will never happen whisper in my ear. They latch me to the present in a way that chills me to the core.

Every attempt to save me has failed. I’m left staring my demons in the face, alone. The man glaring back at me is made of nightmares and malice. For all I’ve lost and all I’ve suffered, for every person who came into my life only get ripped away, and most of all for me–I won’t walk away. Not this time. I’ve passed the point of no return. There is no tomorrow. Come sunrise, only one of us will survive.

I wanted to take a second and fill you guys in on some info.

Been wishing you could see Sean Ferro in the flesh? Here’s your chance!

pic

We came close to having The Arrangement come to life on multiple occasions. Then, the same thing happened: they read up to book 5 and decided there’s no way to do it. It’s too dark. There are several scenes like that in this series, scenes that were almost edited out, scenes that the fans voted on keeping in the book.

So we had two options: Keep Sean dark and keep those scenes the way they are — and never see Sean on the screen — or lighten him up and pander to executives that have never been a part of the story?

Then, a lot of people suggested a third option by asking: Why don’t we make this movie ourselves?

It’s a good question. The series was published independently, so why not make the movie independently as well? The truth is we took a run at this a few years ago. Everything was going great until my son was abruptly hospitalized for months. It wasn’t possible to continue then, but it is now. With a team of experienced film professionals by my side, I could get hit by a car during production and it wouldn’t stop things this time.

So there are just two questions:

  1. Do you want to see Sean Ferro in the flesh?
  2. Should we keep Sean Ferro as dark as he is the books?

What do you want? Because this project is all about you. You’re the reader, the fan who made this series what it is today. This series sold nearly 13 million copies worldwide because you love it, because you shared it, and because you couldn’t stop talking about it.

Offering a way for you to participate is huge, and crowdfunding allows for tons of involvement. The nature of it is communal, and it’s an easy way for you to be involved. No sane person would ever do a Kickstarter for fun, because it’s a massive amount of work–but for something like this? It’s worth it. The Arrangement books have been fan-driven from the start, so it makes sense that the film has lots of fan involvement, too. You are part of the DNA of this series.

Before you go totally nuts and squee all over the place, I want you to calm yourself down and then head over and read the crowdfunding page. Maybe you saw and read it the other day when I sent out the preview invite. Either way, I made a few last second changes based on your replies. Hopefully, I made it better.

I’d love to hear what you think. The campaign went live a few moments ago.

Your comments and feedback are more than welcome! I might be sitting here obsessively watching the screen. Maybe. Probably. Okay, I am! This is nerve wracking. Come over and talk to me. Tell me this isn’t for nothing.

I look forward to hearing from you!

The world as we know it is gone. The ice caps have melted and shifted south, devastating the northern territories. Cities such as New York and London now lie in frozen ruins on the ocean floor.

Humans have become scarce as many died off during an epidemic, and many more perished during the floods at the start of this new ice age.

These events have forced vampires out of the shadows to ensure their food source won’t become extinct. Humans have been captured and forced to live like cattle on farms while the oldest of the vampire race–the Regent–have taken control of the remnants of civilization.

Despite the Regent’s best efforts, their plans for the captives backfire when human blood becomes anemic. With their blood weakened it can no longer sustain the master race. The Regent are desperate to save their race and will do anything to return to the old ways and so every known human is captured and forced into the Regent’s way of life.

But not all of the humans surrendered. Some evaded the hunters, hiding in safe houses across the frozen tundra. As decades passed, the free humans disappeared, died, or were captured, until there is only one left.

Kahli is the last wild human. BANE is her story.

Reader Reviews of BANE:

“A great twist to the end of days type of human and vampire story.”

“Creative twist on a post-apocalyptic world and the impact it has on the vampires!”

“I have read everything else by H.M. Ward and I surprised that she had written a book about vampires. Seems so out of the realm of her steamy romances. I was glad I picked this one up. I love paranormal type books and this one definitely delivered.”

Update about this series: There are 3 books in this series. The series finale is scheduled for a late Spring release.
