No more free ebook sorry

Tue Nov 1, 2011, 1:06 PM


Turns out I'm going on hiatus for a bit while I write the next serial fiction. The crazy thing is things are picking up for me. A publisher has contacted me about my latest ebook and they want to market it and sell it. Since it's my first time with a publisher I think testing the ground with my free ebook sounds like a win-win idea.

Update: No more "The Horror Suicide Show". The next time you see it it will be for sale on kindle and amazon.


The good news, is that I'm writing a novel as well as the rest of the new serial fiction that starts in December called "Mushrooms."

Yeah. Especially since, the publisher plans on changing a couple of things, including the cover art. Which i really liked.

thanks. I just hope it works out for me. :)

I really suggest using twitter to advertise your story. That's how i met my publisher.

I've been thinking about getting a Twitter for months. I just...I'm not the type of person to bother commenting on other people's things, so I didn't see the point. I'd be talking to myself

LVeraWrites Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2011
that's how I felt like at first. But i feel like it's less about commenting and more about advertising for others, with retweets. I doubted it myself, but the stuff that's on there is very interesting.

I wouldn't even go that far though, I know I wouldn't. The only reason I talk to people here, is because they talk to me first. But here, at least, people look for stuff, and will find me. Is that really all that likely on Twitter?

Twitter is the way for all writers. I'm serious. I wish i'd found out sooner. I'm a pretty vocal guy, but a lot of people approach you. Most of teh time all you have to do is just follow people. I really recommend it.

If, IF, I do. Are you opposed to me pestering you mercilessly until I get to grips with it?

probably. :) I really think it's the best way to go. I'm also getting a lot of traffic to my dA page from my twitter account.

Thanks. I just need to focus more on it. I have a tendency to not finish a novel and start writing more short stories. I've already sidetracked once to do so. :)

I wish. The publisher I'm dealing with works mostly online, through kindle and amazon. I'm really interested more in his marketing tools. But when I finally get a novel finish I'm going to shop it around and do my best to get it to stores.

Ahh. I see. So it'll be for e-books then?
He's good at marketing?
Yes, please do! I would love to see one of your novels in stores!

I figure I'll see what he can do with my short story collection. I was working on a second one as well, so if he does a good job on "The horror suicide show" then i'll give him another.

I'm also working on a novel and plan on looking for a literary agents once I'm done. The goal is to get that book into stores. If there are any stores left.

That's a good idea.

Of course there are going to be stores left! Although e-books are easy to access to, everyone loves holding a book in their hands. Nothing beats that.

Also, about the piece that you have to critique. I don't really mind which one you do. Preferably a poem. I don't know if you know anything about drawing / photography. xP
