For book/ebook authors, publishers, & self-publishers
The other week, having exhausted all other avenues for publicising my work, I suggested to my husband we have a reality television show to publicise my novels. He said, 'It would be a pretty boring show.' He's right. But that does not stop anybody else from having one, does it? And unlike most people who have reality TV shows, I'm pretty certain I'm not an oxygen-thieving waste of space.
I've not long completed the first draft of my next novel, but I've put it in abeyance for a few months until I get some other projects out of the way, ie, a play I'm involved in and my school reunion. These things will be over in about one month's time, so it's a-editin' I will go! I'm getting antsy and am really looking forward to getting into it.
But it's nice to give the brain a rest, and I think very important. I didn't do any writing today, after I finished my paid work. What I did do was apply a colorant to my hair (I'm a natural redhead and intend to stay that way for as long as I can feasibly get away with!) and look at clips of the De Franco Family singing, 'Heartbeat, It's A Lovebeat' on You Tube. As you do. Oh come on, admit it's one of your guilty pleasures, too!
Now, who likes adult satire with a gentle nibble? Yes? Well, check out the blurb and first chapter of my novel 'Calumny while reading Irvine Welsh' at http://www.zeus-publications.com/calumny_while_reading_irvine_welsh.... I'm hoping the mention of the author who wrote 'Trainspotting' should grab your attention.
Who likes young adult (that will appeal to oldies, too) about lonely fourteen-year-old boys who befriend talking beagles? You do? Well, you can read the first chapter and blurb to 'Abernethy' at http://www.zeus-publications.com/abernethy.htm. 'Abernethy''s getting me some good feedback, so hopefully that will inspire people to check it out.
The books are available in paperback, and as e-books, too. Details re this can be seen when you (hopefully! Please, pretty please with sugar on it!) click on the links.
