People Asked me Things. I Answered

I’ve been trying to get out more and get some author interviews and such. Why? Because any part of business is promotion and brand building, so the more places my name comes up, the better. You know, it theory :) Not only am I going go talk up each interview, but the source, because both are great! Round About Creative Chaos This is actually my second interview, I know the hosts through my conference business, and my first interview was all about that. It’s a fun listen too. This interview was taped on location at 360|iDev, and was a blast, especially because Jean and Joe are awesome (co-interviewees with literary backstories) but also because it took place after another event so we had a room of people to engage with…

Space Rogues 2: Hot off the …. Presses?

Here it is! To say I’m excited is an understatement! The excitement is compounded by the upcoming wide release of not just Space Rogues 2, but of Space Rogues 1. Space Rogues 1 will be available on all the digital platforms on June 3. Space Rogues 2 will be available June 29! Both books are available for pre-order on all platforms right now! Go get ’em!   I’m really happy with everything about Space Rogues 2: Big Ship, Lots of Guns. The cover is amazing, I think the writing is pretty solid (My editor agrees!) and I think the universe I’m building is taking even more shape.

Space Rogues 2 Cover and Title Now Final

Space Rogues 2: Big Ship, Lots of Guns That’s it! That’s the title, and this (Over to the right) is the cover! I’ve been typing (It’s a working title) for so long it’s almost second nature. Gonna take some getting used to not using it now, well for book 2 that is. Book 3 is officially underway so, you know, plenty of fun potential titles to come there. This cover though. An old friend who I used to see all the time via 360|Flex did the artwork. We traded a lot of emails going over my initial “here’s what I’m thinking”. I sent two really crappy doodles (you’ll have to get the book to see them, they’ll be included in the back). One, the one he chose had a scribble, ‘big…

The Strength of Social Proof

The original title of this post was, “Would you like a free copy of Space Rogues 2: I’ll have a Subtitle Soon, Promise (it’s a working title).” Catchier right? It’s also really long! LOL. So back to the title of this post, Social Proof. When you go to Amazon to buy a book, or a humidifier or a file cabinet, you look at reviews right? You look at the overall rating and scan the reviews. If you’re like me you weigh the good reviews with the more critical; you also look for the highest number of reviews. The more reviews you have available to look at the more likely you are to look at, let alone, buy that thing, right? I know that’s how I shop. So here’s the thing, launching…
