On Book Signings

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Publishing, Writing Advice

Not long after I released my first book, I started doing book signings. They are a great way to hawk your new releases, get exposure for yourself, and generate buzz for your work. However, I found there was little information about what to actually expect during them. I found plenty of resources about what to bring to them, how to sit or stand or pitch, but I could not find anything about the real interactions with people I could expect, and being the socially awkward person I am, that was the information I most needed.

The final proof copy of Bound By Blood arrived today. Everything looks good, so I’ve approved the proof and gotten the ball rolling for the Kindle edition. Everything is on schedule for the release on October 7th! I’ve done three book signings around my area in the past two weeks. Two of them went very well and I had a wonderful time. The third was a flop all around, as the venue put me in a very poor location (at the back door, in the basement no less) where it was very humid to the point of making my pages more »

Looking Forward: Bound by Blood

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Publishing

The second novel of The Seven Wars has officially entered my prep queue. I am planning to release the book, Bound by Blood, on the (currently tentative) date of October 7th, just a few months away!
