Hello everyone! No we are not dead, we’ve just been extremely busy, so let’s get right into it!
Normally, we would take the time to review a book or game, but in this Mouth Off we are going to take the time to promote the whole of the indie-writing/publishing community. The reason? MFG has always prided itself on its desire not just to be a publishing company, but also a promoter of the up-and-coming authors, and other indie-publishing companies as well. To that end, our staff, after extensive research through marketing and demographic research, we’ve gone and created several distinct groups on Facebook for each type of writer to reach their target demographics. Currently, there are only three distinct groups, however each day we are in fact in the process of growing the indie-community by creating more of these groups for each type of genre. These are the following groups that are currently available:
Oh the Horror! Book Promotions: This horror themed genre of book promotions looks to not only promote the macabre and twisted and terrifying, but also for authors to engage one another in conversation about writing, and about the overall horror genre. This group is largely for horror authors and horror enthusiasts who are looking for that next terrifying thrill. The link to this group can be found here-- https://www.facebook.com/groups/1203565766337516/
Tales of Fantasy; Fantasy Book Promotions: This fantasy themed group is targeted for those who wish to throw rings into volcanos and banish evil threats back to the darkness from which they came! No, we’re kidding of course. This book promotional group is targeted for fantasy writers and enthusiasts alike, whether you’re writing urban fantasy, medieval fantasy, or even modern fantasy, this is the place for you to promote your work or simply appreciate others by buying their work! This group, like the others, promotes discussions, writing tips, promo tips, and a place to share your fantastic ideas! This group can be found on Facebook here at the following link-- https://www.facebook.com/groups/189466914750325/
The Laws of Robotics Sci-Fi Book Promotions: This Facebook group is also, like the others, centered towards those who dare to dream beyond the stars, who want to fight galactic empires, or simply want to write about the verse as a whole! This group focuses on the promotional work of anything Sci-Fi within the Indie-Writing/Publishing industry. Like the other groups, this targets those writers and enthusiasts who are all about the fantasy genre. Discussions are encouraged, and tales widely spread! The link for this group can be found here-- https://www.facebook.com/groups/1742877675943234/
Authors, Assemble! Action & Adventure Book Promotions: For those that like to write comic-books, or even write stories about superheroes that are just learning to control their powers, it matters little, for with great writing talent, comes great writing responsibility! In this group, we focus on not just superheroes, but all action/adventure book promotions and promotional work of that nature. You are encouraged to discuss, share helpful tips, just like the other groups. This group is targeted for the action/adventure lovers and writers alike. The link for this group can be found here-- https://www.facebook.com/groups/525710954256292/
Now why did MFG create these groups without directly putting the MFG logo on the title of them? As stated previously, we want to grow the indie-community as well as collaborate with other authors and help them grow their fan base, even if they aren’t being published by MFG. Furthermore, there are some key facts in our research that we came across that we’re going to share. Please note that we’ve basically broken down the majority of it into a few major points:
Why you ask? The goal here is for Indie-Publishers to be able to network and connect with each other. This is not to poach clients in anyway, but rather to ensure indieu-publishers have the resources and collaborative efforts to succeed. If this sounds like something you’re interested in, check out the Indie Publishers group, “The Indie-Publishing Network”. IN this group, we discuss non-confidential matters, as well as new resources that are available and offer help from company to company in one fashion or another. This is not a group for aspiring authors, and MFG will not be the sole admins of this group. Please see the rules on this group once they are posted, and if you cannot see them because the group is closed (and Facebook is always changing their features; just look at the ridiculous emoticons they’ve added), than feel free to message MFG’s owner, Matt Feldman, on Facebook to get a clear list of the rules.
All this said, MFG has gone back to its roots in publishing, and as such, here are two of our featured authors, Mariah Lynde, and Raz T. Slasher.
Darkness Falls: https://www.createspace.com/4931780
"Darkness Falls" by Mariah Lynde
The Isle of Magic has long been a secret that was shrouded in mystery and rumor.
Many stopped believing in such a place but a few remain that seek out its power. Many have wondered if the Isle and its mystical city of Avalon could have ever existed. Even now a war is being fought for the very survival of our worlds, yet few people know that it is even taking place.
Those that do are left with only whispered words of Avalon and the Isle of Magic that once existed.
Three thousand years ago, the city of Avalon fell in one day, yet no one truly knows how it happened or just why it was such a loss to the whole of the realms.
This is the story of what created that mystical place of dreams and magic. It is the tale of those days where all forms of mystical creatures thrived and what eventually led to their downfall.
This is the story of Avalon's creation and the beginning of the War of Darkness that now threatens us all...
“The Mime” by Raz. T. Slasher
In 1985 a tragedy occurred during a small town's founders day festival and performer's parade somewhere in Ohio. This event left one woman dead, and a local man missing. Shortly after a series of murders began taking place over a span of more than 30 years. Samantha was a little girl when it all happened. Things have never been the same since she watched her mother die. She's struggled her entire life just to feel normal. All grown up now, Samantha's finally moved on with her life. She's in a stable relationship for the first time with an amazing woman, and even has a few close friends. It's just another night out on the town, until they find the body of one of her friends in a parking lot.
That’s all for now guys! We look forward to seeing you all on the next update!
