Buda’s Book Celebration

Buda’s Book Celebration

Wow, what a year it has been for this amazing author. Let me introduce RaeBeth McGee-Buda. She is joining us today as she celebrates her one-year mark as a self-published author. Let us learn a little more about her. 

Author Bio

Best Selling Author, RaeBeth McGee-Buda is resides in a tiny valley at the ridges of the
Application Mountains in Fairchance, Pennsylvania, with her husband and daughter, her dog, Cody, and her newest family addition, Romeow her pure white cat.

She has been writing in some form her entire life, but loving young sister, Audra McGee noticed her talent, and gave her the reassurance she needed to start her writing career. After many months of deliberation, RaeBeth decided to trust her sister’s word and expand her short story into what we all know and love as The Silenced Series.

RaeBeth is a mother to an angel in Heaven...Miss Dakota, whom she honored in Saying Goodbye without Saying Hello. Her goals for her books are to inspire and give hope. She is a Christian author, who firmly believes in God and incorporates her faith into some of her work.

                         Here is more on her three published works!

What are others saying about Silenced?

"There are too few books out there about this subject matter. This book makes it easy for the young teenager to read that they are not alone. They are not the only ones out there fighting this affliction. Highly recommended."

“I have never had a book draw me in and fill me with that connection.”

“I applaud the author's bravery in bringing to light a few things that are so easily swept under the rug. Depression and cutting. There really is not enough information out there and more teens and young adults have these issues than most people know. I hope that this series will help someone having these issues and show them that they can seek help.”

What are others saying about Silenced 2: The Overtaking?

“I recommend this to anyone reader who loves Christian suspicion or just wants to read for fun.”

“This is an amazing story that hooks you in from the beginning and sends you on an emotional roller coaster. You can relate to these characters on a personal level, which to me makes the book a masterpiece.”

“SILENCED 2: The Overtaking is a story of healing, forgiveness, and overcoming those things that seek to pull us down, and most of all it is story of HOPE!”

What are others saying about Saying Goodbye without Saying Hello?

"Saying Goodbye Without Saying Hello is a poignant read that shares the journey of the author her experience of a wonderful pregnancy ending abruptly with an unexpected turn; how her baby becomes an angel. This page-turning true story touched my heart as I learned how Mrs. Buda shares just how fragile life is.”

“Rae Beth’s story is heart wrenching and the fact that she shares it with us shows the strength and determination this woman has.” 

“I loved this book! She was so detailed in the raw emotions she felt in going through this very tragic event. I would recommend this book be given to parents who are going through losing their baby in this way. She is very detailed with her thoughts and emotions, I think anyone experiencing something like this, or knowing someone who is would benefit from reading this book.”

10 Tips for Writing a Great Author Bio
by RaeBeth McGee-Buda

Tell me about yourself. This is one thing, as an author, that is always asked. I cannot tell you how many times I have been asked this question. Most of the time, I refer to my author bio that is either on my blog or website.

The author bio is one of the most common aspects an author will have to share. It’s posted on Facebook pages, twitter profiles, blogs, websites, and can even be found on the back (or inside) of their books.

If you have ever tried to write an author bio, you may have realized that it can be a challenging thing to write. How does one write an author bio? What types of information should be included?

Well, here is my top ten list of things that make this task just a bit easier.

1.      Start by reading the bio of several authors.-When doing this, if something catches your eye that you would like to include within yours, jot it down.
2.      Write down a list of as many things as you can think of about yourself. -This can be things you enjoy, information about what types of pets you have, or general information on what you think makes you interesting.
3.      Short is Sweet.- Try to stick with facts and don’t include a lot of information. The fewer the words, especially when this is your first book, the better.
4.      Include your personality in your writing. - This way your readers can get a sense of who you are behind those words. The closer the reader feels to the author, the easier it is for them to realize there is a person behind the book.
5.      Take the lists you created and use them. Try to include bits of what you wrote down in your bio. Of course, if you liked something from another author’s bio, you will want to base it off yourself. Be sure you do not copy it word for word this is plagiarism.   
6.      Do you have any professional background? If you have a degree in creative writing, tell the readers. Have you written for magazines or newspapers? Include it. This helps the readers see other accomplishments you have outside of the book they read.
7.      Hit the highlights about you. When writing your bio, you do not need to list everything within your life. You can share this information in another way, like in an interview later on. You do not want to overload the reader with a massive “about me” facts.
8.      Be sure to include how readers can connect with you. This could be informing them which social media sites you are on. So, let them know if you use Twitter, Facebook, a website, or a blog.
9.      Invite critiques. Be open to constructive critics. They can help you polish up your bio and get rid of the unnecessary information, which may be lingering within your rough draft.
10.   Be sure to update it. When you have had it reviewed and have shared it, be sure to go back occasionally and up date it. There is bound to be more information about you as your writing career goes on.

What do you think? Share what types of information you like to see in an author bio.
