Am Published. Would like to Write.
I’ve been a published author for nearly two weeks now. And, despite the fact that it’s still weird to write that, I’ve spent pretty much every day doing marketing. Now don’t get me wrong, I appreciate every single person who has allowed me to steal, borrow or befoul their blogs, but before I published, I’d spent every available second working on the book for at least two weeks before hand.
So that means I haven’t written anything new on book 2 for nearly a month and my brain is beginning to dislike that fact.
However much I’d prepared for the marketing side of being published, the reality and the plan go about as well together as oil and water. Learning how to mash the marketing and the creative together so you can do both, is a trick I’m still learning. There’s no how to guide, there’s only trial and error. Hopefully, with more success than error.
At some point soon, I plan on getting back to writing, that’s what got me to the stage of being published in the first place after all, and maybe, just maybe, my brain will be happy about the fact that I’ve written something.
Speaking of the past week, I have several more links for people to go check out:
Chrissey Harrison did an excellent review of Crimes Against Magic, which you can go to here.
There’s also a wonderful interview you can check out here, with the chance to win a copy of Crimes Against Magic.
Big Bear has also done an excellent review.
As did Darcie Mair, here.
Belinda Frisch did an awesome interview too.
At the moment, Crimes Against Magic has five, 5 star reviews and three, 4 star reviews. All in all, a superb total and one that I couldn’t have expected if I’d tried. A serious thank you to everyone who purchased a copy. Which, you can still do by going to Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com.
For those who have been asking for a paperback copy, your wish is granted:
It will be out, hopefully, by the end of May. I’ll confirm a date and price closer to the time though. It’ll also be out on smashwords soon, once again price and date to be annouced.
So that’s it for another week. I hope you all have a good weekend.
