Sorry everyone for the long time in between posts but I’ve been working on a lot of interesting things recently.
Aside from non-book related activities and travel, I’ve been working on editing the manuscript that I developed during the 2012 National Novel Writing Month - Other than I. My current plan is to finish another edit on it over the next few months before I submit it to an editor. Aside from that, I don’t have a lot of promotional events going on during the summer months and this project will take up most of my free time. In the meantime, I will have a number of Amazon promotions offering discounts on my previous novel: Evermore: Call of the Nocturne. If all goes well with Other than I, I should be able to start production on the next book in the Evermore series in November. The name is under wraps for now but I hope to have more news on this project soon.
Until then, please enjoy your summer … and buy my book if you haven’t already.
Great news for those of you who have not yet bought my debut novel, Evermore: Call of the Nocturne. Lulu, the site where I self-publish, is having a special sale where you can 40% of all of their print editions. I repeat … 40%!
All you have to do is go to the Lulu Bookstore, find my book, add it to your basket and then use the coupon code FALLSALE40 when you check out. It’s that simple.
So if you’ve been meaning to read it for a while, now’s your chance. You’ll have a great time and you’ll save money.
Sad news today as the world found out that legendary crime writer Elmore Leonard had passed away at the age of 87. While he had lived a full life, wrote more novels than I could read in a lifetime and saw many of those ideas translated into movies, it is still sad to see him go.
I haven’t read him enough to render a full opinion of him or his body of work but he certainly has had a major impact on several generations of writers with his ten rules of writing. Thankfully, Gail Bowen of the Globe and Mail has reposted the ten rules. I fully recommend that you check it out. If you are a writer, then I hope these rules will have as much influence as they had (and continue to have) on me.
