Everything is Coming Together

A couple days ago I received word from my publisher that my author’s copies were on their way. That was exciting enough, but yesterday the t-shirts and book cards I ordered arrived.

Those two events made everything feel more real than ever.

And to put a thick layer of icing on my cake, I got an email from my home town public library, inviting me to come back and do an author visit to promote the new book.

Just for the record, it took me almost eighteen months after Mik Murdoch: Boy Superhero was published to get my first visit. Being invited before the sequel is released is a definite improvement (and in the spirit of full disclosure, the library manager who invited me hadn’t even started the job when Mik 1 came out – he got me in after he was settled in the position).

So, now I need to arrange a couple interviews with other podcasts…get a couple (positive reviews out there…the book launch is set for When Words Collide…

I guess all that’s left is to hire that sky writer to start putting the message out over the city and I’ll be set. ;)

Still Largely Clueless

I have been writing and trying to market and promote my work for a long time.

Note, I said “Trying”.

Despite the amount of time and effort I’ve put in to getting my work in front of people and increase my profile, I still feel like I have no idea. Really. No idea at all.

I started by writing the best book I could. People have reacted favorably to it. People have asked for more. I have more coming out in August.

Maybe that will help. Honestly, I don’t know.

I have a new, collaborated series coming out later this year. That might help expand my audience too. Again, not sure. Only time will tell.

Then there is the blogging, podcasting, Tweeting and Wattpad submissions I’m doing. I know each one of those resonant with some people. Is it helping?

???

Perhaps the only thing I can do is everything I’m doing now, plus look for more opportunities in the future. That and keep writing new stories. Maybe then, someday, with a lot of patience I might find something that tips the scale to where I’m the next phenom.

Or, at least, talented mid-lister.

A Recent GalaxyBillies Review

As you probably know, my SciFi Comedy, GalaxyBillies is mostly available on Wattpad right now. I say mostly because there are still a few chapters to post which will be coming soon.

Recently Argyle Hartley did a book review of the story so far. I wanted to share the review with you.

You can find it at: http://argylebooks.blogspot.ca/2014/06/first-book-review-galaxy-billies-by.html?showComment=1404137955600
