Conventional wisdom would indicate that the absolute worst time for an author to drop off the face of the earth would be in the month following his book’s release. But hey, everything else about how I do things defies wisdom (conventional or otherwise), so why would I buck the trend here?
Anyway, a couple of things before I bury myself under my Author Rock™* again and get back to creating stuff.
2. Speaking of showing me love, reviews on Amazon and Goodreads are welcomed and encouraged! Reviews help sell books, assuming they aren’t just trashing the book or my new haircut.
3. Fellow Royal James author Steen Jones has a novel coming out next month, and the pre-order for it is up today! I’m personally super-excited about this book. Modern-day fantasy with gateways to different worlds? That is my jam, folks. She’s also running a giveaway thing on her blog if you pre-order the book and snap a pic of your receipt, so you should do that.
Anyway, the underside of that Author Rock™ isn’t going to describe itself via haiku, so I’m off to go do something very much like that.
* – All authors live under rocks. It’s where we’re most comfortable. The official Author Rock™ is only available to any author who wants one and is willing to lug the thing around. It is quite large and heavy, as befits a rock.
