Inching closer to the finish line!
My first book is complete. I have the interior designed for both eBook and print. I have finalized the cover and should have it and some promotional items in the next couple of days.
After confirming with my marketing staff, led by my wife and with Totoro the husky in an intern position, I've decided to use Amazon primarily for the first book.
After a bit of time, I may expand the eBook version to some of the other platforms but honestly, the entire process is exhausting and quite overwhelming. This hopefully will make it easier for me to learn as I push forward with this whole writing book phase.
The last few weeks have been filled with watching videos, reading articles, and generally falling down rabbit holes as I try to figure out the best way to approach the release of the first book. And of course, during all this, there is little time for writing.
But I see a light at the end of the tunnel...as long as I land on my feet and not my face. In the next week or two, I hope to share my plans for the book, The Shadow Within...including ways to get a copy for free or discounted in the near future.
I'm 12000 words into my next book about the Pope Lick Monster, a goat-man monster that terrorizes Kentucky and the first of a Kentucky based horror trilogy. I also am working up what I hope will be a series of novels that focus on a Red Riding Hood-like character but in a world much darker than anything the brothers Grimm imagined.
I plan on continuing to share more of my shorter stories on the site, and I am working on a continuous series that will be showcased here. Once I have it ready to start, I will post a new installment every 2-4 weeks.
