Sycamore Heights, where everyone keeps a deadly secret.

On the surface Katrina Harvey is like any other 17-year-old about to start their senior year but not everything is quite as it seems. After being violently attacked she loses her memory and now has no idea who is friend, foe, or – most importantly – that she happens to be a 235-year-old vampire.

Now Katrina is being stalked by someone, or something, who doesn’t want her to remember her past and will do anything to keep it that way.

Sixteen-year-old Suzanne Harvey was left distraught when her older sister, Katrina, disappeared two centuries ago. Suzanne was turned into a werewolf soon…

Non-US Self-Publisher? Tax Issues Don’t Need to be Taxing

CATHERINE RYAN HOWARD

***Update May 2016***

Please be aware: I am closing comments on this post. It was published 4 years ago and last updated nearly 2 years ago and so I’m sure that there’s better, more up to date information elsewhere on the web. Thanks for stopping by. All my self-publishing ‘how to’ blogs are collected here in what I hope are useful categories.

****Update October 2014 – Read Me!****

From the Amazon KDP Tax Interview guide, October 2014:

“If you are claiming a reduced rate of withholding tax under an income tax treaty and do not have a U.S. TIN, provide your foreign (non-U.S.) income tax identification number to receive treaty benefits. This number is issued by your local tax authority or government for income tax purposes.”

Fill The Shelves – A Great New Initiative To Help Underfunded School Libraries

David Gaughran

Chronic under-funding of school libraries has led to the tragic spectacle of empty shelves, leaving children with nothing to read; but a new initiative called Fill The Shelves hopes to change all that.

This story starts in a Pennsylvania K-8 school called Pittsburgh Manchester, where the librarian – Sheila May-Stein – decided to do something about the empty shelves in her own school (pictured left – that was the entire Fiction section of Manchester’s school library).

Last month, Sheila posted that photo to the Facebook wall of University of Pittsburgh professor Jessie Ramey, who then wrote about the problem on her education blog Yinzercation, along with ways that people could help – including ordering books from an Amazon Wish List.

Then things went a little viral. That Facebook photo spread like wildfire. They got coverage from their local newspaper. CBS Pittsburgh came out and did a story. Neil…

Very quick update…

I hope to post a recommended read later today, it’s just leaving half past five in morning where I am.

Also, in book related news my book is out to the beta’s and so far apart from some little niggles with grammar, etc… everything is going smoothly and I have been told that “it’s great, refreshing.” “I love it.” “The characters are real”

This kind of feedback makes me so happy but I do have to say that I am also very nervous and I do hope to share more book news in the next week or two.
