Welcome to my blog. For a long-winded explanation of what you’ll find here, check out the FAQ. If you’d rather not slog through several pages of increasingly-ridiculous dialogue, keep reading.
So six years ago, I wrote a book. It’s about alien abduction, romance, flashy laser gun battles, aliens with a shaky understanding of logic and morality, and a high school girl named Eris trying to find her way back home to Earth. After innumerable edits and revisions, Imminent Danger and How to Fly Straight into It is finally ready for publication. Since traditional publishing houses are wary of first-time authors, I’ve elected to go the self-publishing route via iUniverse. This means I have to pay them money, instead of them paying me, but that’s the price you pay for self-publication.
This blog is about that book. Well, currently. If people like the book, and buy the book, then I’ll hopefully make enough money to afford publishing a sequel. And then another sequel. And so on. Maybe start a different series entirely. But right now, the focus is on Imminent Danger.
It isn’t published yet, so you can’t buy it right now. But it should be ready to go by the end of Summer 2012. Check back here every few weeks to learn of any new developments. And if you’re an author looking to self-publish, I’ll be describing each step of the self-publication process as it happens to me, so stay tuned.
Talking to people is awesome. As such, you should definitely talk to me. Leave comments, email me, facebook me, anything you want. Honestly, it doesn’t even have to be related to the blog. Read a good book lately? Tell me about it! Heard a hilarious, slightly inappropriate joke? I’m all ears (not literally – that would be strange). I have a Facebook page for the book that you can also check out. If you really want to get in touch with me, I suppose that stalking me down and slipping creepy letters under my door is also an option, but I’d prefer that you take the electronic route if at all possible.
I’m new to all this, so if you think of ways to improve the blog – polls, book excerpts, contests, videos, whatever – please let me know. Oh, and for people new to WordPress.com, there’s some sort of Subscribe button you can press that will let the site email you whenever I write a new post. I promise I’ll keep them to two or less a week so that I don’t spam your inbox.
I look forward to meeting you!!!
Thank you for visiting my site. I am excited to see what you are writing and so is my son who is a fan of anything aliens. In fact, in my spare time and bouts of writer’s block, I am working on my own sci-fi book called Zombies vs Aliens, but its more geared toward the alien aspect. Again, please feel free to email me with any questions you have regarding the Iuniverse process and before add-ons they will offer throughout: some are good, some not so much. firstname.lastname@example.org I will follow this blog and your progress…and btw, there is a place where you can choose not to receive email updates from certain blogs so it doesn’t fill your mailbox. then you only see them when you go to “reads” on the homepage.
