Yesterday, I crossed something off my bucket list… I published a poem! Better than that, I even won a contest with it. I was pretty shocked and elated. 🙂
The poem will be published in Sibyl’s Scriptorium, Volume 5.
I’m also thrilled that my story, Pre-Screening Test, as part of the GameLit Expansion Pack box set has spent some time as number 1 on Amazon’s chart for Virtual Reality! If you haven’t read it yet, get it now!
It’s out! The kickstarter funded, so you can get Glimpses now. This album is full of songs with lyrics written by fourteen different authors, set to music and performed by the amazing Craig Nybo. I wrote the lyrics for track twelve: The Strong Must Wait.
They are all dramatic, and related to various literary works. You can get the lyrics for my song from this older blog. Or just download it and listen. You can get it almost anywhere, but here are three great outlets:
I’m thrilled and honored to have been part of this great project. If you like alternative music, you have to check it out!
Cover Reveal! I just finished the cover for my story in the GameLit Expansion Pack Box Set! I’m especially excited about it because I made the whole cover myself. I’ve always loved book covers. I hoped to make one sometime, but I never had the right opportunity before. I think it turned out pretty well, if I do say so myself. 🙂
The box set has a cover already, of course. That’s what people will see on Amazon when they go to buy it. My book cover will be inside with my story. It’s the most amazing and artistic collection of interior art I’ve ever seen. One for each of the nine stories included, in addition to the one for the set.
Also, there is a book trailer on YouTube, just for my story! Just 80 seconds long. It’s really a great little video, put together by Richard M. Mulder. You absolutely HAVE to see it! And you can hear the first part of my story on #FFF podcast.
In just two weeks, my story Pre-screening Test will be out as part of the GameLit Expansion Pack. You can pre-order it now. As a teaser, an excerpt of that story, called VR & PR has been turned into an audio book like production for Flash Fiction Friday by Immortal Works Press. Read by Jon Grundvig. It’s available on the IW #FFF website, or on YouTube. Give it a listen!
Amazon likes to play a game with me. The premise is simple. They slowly drop the price of my paperback books a little at a time to see how long I’ll wait before I buy them cheap. they probably don’t realize the game’s a no-brainer. Eventually, the price goes lower than what I can get them from my distributor for (to sell at signings and conventions). Then I buy a bunch and they put the price right back up.
We’ve reached the tipping point of the game for a couple of my best-selling books. They are down to a third of the cover price. Normally, I’d just snap them up, but this time, I thought I’d let you in on it. I can’t guarantee I’ll hold off very long. But for a little while, you can get these books, brand new, for dirt cheap.
Get them fast, because after a few are sold, they’ll be $18.99 and $16.99 again. 🙂
