Money Talks – or Does It?

October 20, 2017

0

A long time ago I tried my hand at paid promotions on Facebook and got nowhere. Throwing $5 at it produced virtually zero results. The system was very different then, however, and after all the jazz about Russian meddling in the election for very small amounts of money on a per-meddle basis, I figured I’d […]

Follow-Up to Last Post: Promoted Advertisements

August 9, 2017

0

A little over a year ago I said I was going to try paying small amounts of money for promoted posts and positioning on Facebook and Amazon, and see what happened. The theory behind them is that your content or your books will show up in front of people who otherwise wouldn’t see it but […]

WIP: A Fall in Autumn

March 7, 2015

0

Someone suggested I start posting excerpts from what I’m writing at the moment, so I’m throwing this out there. Does it sound to you like a good idea that I post what I just wrote – literally the last few paragraphs of the draft I’m currently drafting – every month or every two weeks or so? Please […]

Quandaries & Opportunities

January 23, 2015

I have an interesting opportunity and a quandary, and I’d like to describe them to you. One of the goals I set for myself when I published PERISHABLES was to experiment with different means of promotion via The Perishables Project. As part of the project, with each novel I’ve set a goal of selling ten […]

Deal with the Devil – Out Now!

January 4, 2014

Check it out: Deal with the Devil is out now for Kindle! That last bit is important, though: it’s out for Kindle only. That’s a temporary measure, but it’s one I felt I had to take to really test the Kindle Direct Publishing platform. On the advice of a friend who runs a micropress, I’m trying out […]

I am extremely pleased to say that I will soon be breaking into the realm of actual, physical bookstores! Atomic Empire will be carrying a few copies of Perishables and Tooth & Nail in their local authors section as soon as I get over there to supply them with copies. Atomic Empire (and before, when […]

ConCarolinas Wrap-Up

(I edited the buyer out of this photograph – which is of me signing my first ever autograph! – because I forgot to ask her permission to use the picture on this blog. If you happen to be this person and you don’t mind, let me know!) I survived my first experience as a convention guest […]

This weekend I’m a writer guest at ConCarolinas in Charlotte, NC. I’ll be appearing on a bunch of panels and staffing a table in Writers Alley between the panels. I’ll also probably be at the dance party on Saturday night because, hello, dance party. Below is my schedule of panels for the weekend. They’re listed […]

On Being Remembered After Networking

May 19, 2013

In two weeks I’ll be attending ConCarolinas 2013 as a writer guest and panelist. It’s my first convention and I’ve been pondering how to make myself memorable to attendees and other guests. There are dozens of writers there for the weekend and I want – no, I need – to figure out some way to make my […]

Just Like That

With the push of a button, Tooth & Nail is officially published. There’s a lot of “you should have a launch event” out there online but I don’t even get how one has a launch event for an ebook. I’m sure one of the local businesses where I’m a regular would be willing to host […]
