WHEN IS OUTER RED COMING?
Ok, ok....I know by now that nobody is even reading my book (Or this site for that matter....helloooo....responses anyone? *Sigh*), but this is a slow process of doing it when and where I can. It IS still in the process and it will be a full book of mini-stories in each that link up as one book in total. There we go. When is it coming? Dunno....I feel set back in writing and with very little responses and looky-loos I feel like this is going nowhere.
But - one cannot get noticed unless one produces something, yes?
THE MYSTERIOUS WORLD OF PROFESSOR DARKK AND MISS SHADOW
In the process of starting this one up as well. A short story is being put forth first and then a series of novels to follow it. The short story might go up on here as a free beginning to see if there are any interests....I might even put it up on inkit.com and Wattpad.com as a possible beginning. Maybe even putting on KOBO as a free one.
The story is set around two mysterious people known only as Prof. Darkk and Ms. Shadow - X-files meets Doctor Who with a dash of Batman. That's how I'm going to describe it. *Shrugs* They deal with the strange, unusual and the other worldly....but an FBI agent is assigned to find out all he can about the two and the sort of "world" they deal with on a day to day basis.
It will be cool, believe me.
So apparently my original cover is too boring and not eye catching enough to spark any interest.
I've taken the liberty to redesign the cover and need your input as too what you think of it. Maybe help me figure out what it needs more or less of....anything that could help me guys (and gals.)
So far the sales have been non-exsistant....a relative of mine suggested it was my cover, not eye catching enough and too ugly. So, I'll show you my revamp and tell me what you think.
New cover (Left) and the old cover (Right)
Hey there all! Just added a new area to post some of my future works and some samples of the up coming book (which is now being pushed back to summer of 2017) The first one up and I hope you will go and read it!
Well, I have things on hold for now. Mainly due to being back at my full time night job and that I've had like zero time for writing. It seems my days and weeks are becoming crammed with distractions, family matters and the old writers block too. That and the fact that my book sales are almost non-exsistant. I don't have the money to spend on adevertising and I should would love for some word of mouth to help. This book was a labour of love for me and it pains me to see it going nowhere.
Could that be a sign that it's no one is interested? Absolutely not! I believe that the stories are entertaining and many would be willing to read it. I just think that in this day and age...if you can get it for free or cheap, that's how people are. Yes I've offered it for free the odd time and for lower sales. In the long run that hurts me though. I'd really love someone to do a review of this book and let me post it online here. Good or Bad, I would accept either one or any review to get some exposure.
Is this an S.O.S., yeah....I think so. I would love to publish another book...but no feedback or sales tends to put a writer in to depression.
Congrats to Susan Asselin on winning a signed copy of my book Distant Saga Trilogy: A Short Story Collection!
The book contest posted on Goodreads had 87 hits to win one free signed copy and Susan was selected. I personally thank all of those who tried to win and hope your interest will be enough to go and purchase the book.
I know it's early for the cover to be shown....but I needed to get that out the way before I finish the story. I've decided to keep this story out of the next Distant Saga Triolgy and make it a seperate collective short story book. The first short story will go out by itself as an online only till the other two short stories for it are done. Then I'll rebublish it into one book and make it into a hard copy as well. Just so you know, this story isn't going to be ready until mid-2016.
Well, I have other things in my life that prevent me from keeping the writing from flowing. (i.e.- Family, appointments, work - yes I have a regular job to attend too.) But while I'm busy trying to get that done I also have the sequel book to Distant Saga trilogy to work on. So I'm a busy, busy, busy man right now.
Once it's done I hope you will go and purchase it. I may have a contest to get a free copy of it....we'll see...it's a long haul to it yet.
