First up is this:
Thus, my self-pubbed chapbook "Betrayed!" is available in both the Kindle and Nook (as well as others) formats. If you were always curious about what I write but didn't really want to get the paperback version of my chapbook (which is still available through my book blog), you can now purchase it for the medium range price of $3.99. Just click on the caption and it will take you directly to the Author House website.
"Betrayed!" is not only a excellent introduction to what I write, but it will also give you a basic idea of what my upcoming novel "Line 21" is like as well. So if you feel overly generous with your money today, take a shot at buying my book, either the paperback or the e-book. You won't be disappointed.
Next up is this:
I have some good news on the commercial debut novel front. I found out on Monday (6/25) that I'm a few steps closer in being assigned an editor, and I tell, it's the best news that I've gotten so far this week. In addition to that piece of good news, I now have to do what I've only done previously once before and I've given myself a very tight deadline to get it done. And that is this:
1} A dedication, if any.
2} Acknowledgements, if any.
3} About the author piece, roughly 300 words.
4} Book blurb for the back cover.
Now, I've done a dedication before, so that one is a no-brainer. The acknowledgements, will also be a no brainer, since everyone who has done me good, either in the real word or here in the blog world (and you know who you are) with my writing, will get some kind of acknowledgement of their contribution, however large or small, in shaping me as a writer.
The author bio will be a tad more difficult, in that I have to write about 300 words about myself. Not gonna be easy, especially since I've only been writing since 2006 and seriously since 2010. But I will persevere and will probably show everyone the first draft of what I've come up with.
The book blurb will be somewhere in between. I got a basic outline of it already, which is the query letter synopsis that is posted on the book blog. So on this, I will be very open for suggestions, like for example, what kind of word count should I be shooting for? How detailed/vague should I make it?
If you got suggestions/ideas, please feel free to either leave then in the comment section or drop me an e-mail.
And as always, I thank you from the bottom of my heart, which is not in my hand because I wasn't doing this, for you just being you.
