Business as usual ... or not
I took a break, as often happens, from the current work-in-progress (WIP) because I wrote my protagonist into a corner and needed to ponder how I'd get him out of that predicament without erasing and rewriting a substantial portion of the manuscript. I think I've figured that out. Strangely enough, it was the character's father who provided me with that inspiration. So, once again, I've resumed plugging away at the keyboard to push the story along. I need to keep at it, because I've slated this book--Champion of the Twin Moons, Book 5 in the Twin Moons Saga—for release in June (or earlier if I can swing it). There's a whole lot to do yet!
In the hopper ...
Meanwhile, I've got more books simmering on the back burners of my mind and which I hope to produce yet this year:
Will there be more books? Of course! I just don't know what they are yet. Don't despair if you prefer those one-off stories. I'll produce more of them. Those stories keep my mind fresh.
On the freelance front ...
With regard to business as usual, there's the freelancing aspect of my livelihood that cannot be ignored. I have come up with a package deal for ghostwriting I call the Rapid Release Program. This package is based on the favorable algorithms Amazon uses for new releases. An author who releases a lot of books frequently benefits from those algorithms through enhanced placement, better promotion, and increased sales. Here's how it works:
The price of the package is $1,500 per month.
Make sure you get a copy ...
Finally, I'll be attending several events throughout the year in the capacities of author, artist, and freelance writer/editor. To each of these events I bring a limited selection of my books. (Bringing copies of every title just isn't feasible.) However, it's come to my attention that some folks want to make sure I have copies of certain titles available. Therefore, I have created a pre-order form.
Use this pre-order form to let me know which event you'll be attending and which title(s) you want me to reserve for you. I'll make sure to keep copies of those books on hand for you. All pre-orders must be submitted at least 30 days prior to the event. If you want a copy of a book that is not listed on the pre-order form, purchase it from Amazon and bring it to the event where I'll be happy to autograph it for you.
