It still hasn’t quite sunk in yet, but as of today I am a published author.
Almost a year after I first started pestering people with buymybookbuymybookifyou’rereallymyfriendyou’llbymybook harassment, it’s finally out. If you’re reading this, you’ve already gotten your copy (I hope!), but now they’re available online at Amazon, B&N and others, and at dozens of independent bookstores all around the country.
Thank you so much.
The amount of effort that goes into publishing a book is truly awe inspiring. My editors Kiele Raymond and Michael Trudeau transformed some mediocre writing into the polished manuscript you received this past month. I’m beyond over-the-moon about the cover Elyse Lyons produced for me, and Emily Zach and the rest of the production team at Girl Friday was professional 100%.
Meanwhile, at Inkshares, my marketing manager Avalon has been working overtime getting me interviews, reviews, and my books in stores, while newly appointed CEO Adam Gomolin has been in overdrive on the derivative properties side.
And then there are the Nerdist folks, who not only sponsored the contest in the first place, making this whole thing possible, but who also treated me like a real Author when I visited them at Comic Con in San Diego.
Thank you all for your tireless work to make this project as successful as possible.
Now, some news:
Monday night I was featured on The 207, a Portland and Bangor local features show on NBC. The boys from Bull Moose were extremely kind in their promotion of my novel.
Today I woke up to a Bangor Daily News review, which was similarly positive.
I’m also looking at scheduling book signing events around the Bangor area over the next several weeks. Check out my Facebook page to stay current!
Lastly, in case you missed it, I’ve got a Comic Con recap on my blog, which you can find here.
So that’s pretty much it.
I can say thank you enough
