Coming up on the end to the first month of the 2018 season and I can’t even remember the last time I wrote in here. As a writer, this makes me look piss-poor… But, hey, I put the pro in procrastination!
One thing that made me want to get a post out was a message I received from a young man the other day. In it, he let me know how he has loved the trilogy I wrote and how powerful it was for him. He even goes on to tell me that I’m one of his favorite authors. Now, I have to admit these are the things that keep me going, call it writer’s adrenaline. And as an Indie writer, who does as little marketing as I have, I don’t get to experience the reader’s reactions or interpretations of my works. Generally, that only happens when its either bad or I beg. This young man went out of his way to make my day if not week by just telling me he read my books. Expounding on the way he enjoyed them almost made me feel unworthy to a point, but filled my heart with such joy that I hope the next book will keep me in his favorite author category. Thanks, dude. You rock.
Okay so, brief run down on what’s going on thus far:
- Finishing up a stand alone horror book under the working title of American Red. Rough chapters are available on WattPad if you are daring enough to give it a try. CLICK HERE
- Audiobook for A Time to Reap is underway. It is surreal to hear my thoughts and words come out of a narrator’s mouth, but it’s so exciting, I can’t wait to share it with everyone this Spring.
- Digital Box Set of The Legend of Carter Gabel is being proposed. That way, Kindle lovers can get all three for one low price and never have to skip a beat. This may be coming out as early as March for those interested. Might also branch this out to Nook, iTunes and wherever is prevalent.
- Podcast… yes, that’s right. I will have a podcast coming out soon with my wonderful co-host Kate M. Colby. We’ll be discussing a sci-fi or fantasy book over a drink, we’ll have a book group on Goodreads and all the social media things. Stay tuned for more!!
Anywho, that should about cover the fun things. If you think of something you want to ask, let me know. I hope everyone has a great weekend. Keep reading, writing and reviewing!!
