Holy smokes, check it out! Three posts in a row! How’s that for a comeback? I haven’t gotten the new computer yet, but the boyfriend’s schedule has me waiting in the back room at work this past weekend, and I wanted to make sure I take advantage of it in whatever way I can. But today we’re going to be delving into everyone’s favorite pastime: shameless plugs.
The first one is a pretty important one, though. We’re in the middle of summer, which means it’s really time to put the petal to the metal and get the word out about World Unknown Review Volume III! The deadline for the 2016 edition of my fledgling little toddler literary journal is October 31st, so, technically, there’s plenty of time, but it never hurts to be on top of things, right? I’m looking for a little bit of everything, including novellas, but, for a good idea of what sorts of things I’ve been publishing, you can check out Volumes I and II here and here! Digital copies are only 99 cents, and the paperback versions are pretty reasonable, too, so why not check them out? You’ll discover a lot of really fantastic authors and stories…and then have the chance to be one of those fantastic authors yourself!
And that brings me into my next point, a humble plea for my readers here to consider checking out any of the above or following books. Once upon a time, a long, long time ago, I made a vow to myself that I would sell at least one copy of a book every month. I figured it would be a pretty low-ball, easy goal to maintain, but the lack of a computer has made it difficult. I’m not going to really get back into the marketing heavily until next month, since we’re almost done with July (what? HOW?), but, hey, if you want to help with that one sale for this month, that would be pretty sweet. We’ve got either of the WURs listed above, or you could check out my zombie apocalypse series, The Slayer Saga, which starts with Soulless, continues with Heartless, and will conclude next year with Soulless. Or check out more short stories with my collection, Bowlful of Bunnies. Don’t let the cutesy title and cover fool you! These are definitely grown-up size stories.
Has anyone had a chance to pick up the latest issue of Ghostlight, the Magazine of Terror from the Great Lakes Association of Horror Writiers yet? I’ve got a story about zombies (I like zombies okay?) in it, and fellow WUR writer S.L. Dixon has a great story about “skitters” in there, too. It’s definitely worth a look!
So that’s what I’ve got to shamelessly plug at the moment. And, since one good turn deserves another, what have you all got to plug these days?
