Greetings, chums, and welcome to the first entry in the dachshund-spankingly new writing blog.
I’ve decided to document the writing process and give you a behind-the-scenes look into the juicy, all-natural, 100% beef process behind Bob and the Cyber-Llama. Here, you’ll find details about upcoming events I’ll be attending, marketing efforts, and even snippets of upcoming work.
My main focus since publishing Bob and the Cyber-Llama has been on two things: marketing and sequels. Books don’t sell themselves and, as I don’t have any salesmanship experience, marketing has been a challenge. It doesn’t matter how good your book is if you can’t get it into peoples’ hands.
You’re going to be seeing more activity on the writing blog, as well as on Classysturgeon and in other areas, all of which will hopefully increase word-of-mouth. And if you know someone who might be interested in my little llama-tastic world, please send them my way.
I’m also excited about the upcoming Bob and the Cyber-Llama sequel, Bob and the Pop-Up Book of Destiny. I’ve already finished the first draft of the second book, and it’s being edited. I’m hoping to release Pop-Up Book of Destiny by the end of May and will preview the cover in the coming weeks.
And there’s good reason for me to be excited about next book. A few hours ago, I opened my email to find one of Bob and the Cyber-Llama‘s first reviews sitting in my inbox. It was written by my young friend Andrew:
Your Bob and the cyber-llama book was amazing!!!!! Your book was the best book I have ever read!!!!! Every part is so good, that I don’t even know what my favorite part was!!!!! I stayed up all night reading it because it was so good. Please make another book and send it to me. I’m even making some books that I am going to send to you.
If that’s not a review I can be proud of, I don’t know what is.
