I’ve made another promotional video for the new book. I’ve enjoyed learning to make videos so much that I made one for my first book, Blood & Alcohol, and reopened my Youtube channel.

2016 #indiebooksbeseen Catalog

0

Indie authors hustle harder.

The market can be challenging for self-published authors. Self-promotion can be a full-time and awkward job. We don’t get the publicity and backing that a publishing house can provide.

Mark Shaw, author of “Keeper of the Wind”, started the #indiebooksbeseen movement on twitter a couple of years ago with the intention of getting indie writers and their overlooked talent the exposure they deserved across social media and beyond. It is a community for indie authors to support one another and promote our work collectively. This year I contributed “Blood & Alcohol” to the 2016 catalog of books. This catalogs ship worldwide, as the #indiebooksbeseen movement and it’s contributors are an international collective of writers. The catalog offers book selections from all genres across the board, with something for all ages.

How can you get a copy of this awesome catalog? They will be available for FREE at all of my upcoming book signings for the rest of the year. Check the Events page for details. They are also included for FREE in ANY purchase you make from my webstore. Or you may contact me directly to request one. You might even spot one at a library or in waiting room if you’re local!

I discovered #indiebooksbeseen from Detroit based indie game developer, Gerald Moore, who is creating the fighting game “Hastings Paradise”.  It’s a fighting-style game featuring jazz legends Billie Holiday and Duke Ellington. Yes, I was sold from the beginning! You can follow Moore’s project on twitter @HastingsHR 

I’m looking forward to doing more with #indiebooksbeseen, including their “Indie Pride Day” this summer!

And The Winner Is…

The stress ball contest has ended and I have my winner. Because there wouldn’t have been a contest without the help of my two participants, they both will have a reserved signed copy of Skin of the Night shipped to them upon publication.

The giveaway was in celebration of my first published book turning one year old. The sequel will be coming out around Halloween. You may purchase book one, Blood & Alcohol, at amazon and look forward to more giveaways after book two, Skin of the Night, is published.

Progress on Skin of the Night is happening. I’m about halfway through the number of drawings I was shooting for with this book.  The writing was completed earlier this year and will be ready to go to beta readers with drawings around mid-October. I am truly grateful that one of my fabulous editors from my last book has signed on to do this one too. Of course I picked my most favorite time of year, Halloween/fall, for the final push to get my book out. There is so much going on right now, it’s been challenging making time for everything and staying balanced and not burning out.

In other news, there seems to be some movement on the Mini PI tank top that I ordered back on July 1st and got lost in the mail. The design was ultimately intended to be included in my product line of geeky fan art in The Sick Shoppe, the online store I created to sell The Sick Rose merchandise and am expanding to include other items featuring my original artwork and signed copies of my books. Fingers crossed that I finally get the tank one day, you know, before winter, but I’ve already decided it’s probably best to go through another company. I will be devoting more time to reopening the store after Skin of the Night comes out.

This weekend I will be hanging out at Monroe Comic Con as Zatanna and meeting the Red Ranger and whatnot. Geeky shenanigans to ensue.
