Discussion

Hello friends,
Been a bit too long since my last update, and there’s lots going on.
In August I was asked to speak at a local museum/gallery on the writing and publishing experience.  It was a 2 hour discussion and it was invigorating.  I’m getting set to do it again on December 15 as a new workshop!  2 hours on writing process, paths to publication, and the marketing madness that comes with the territory.  I’m looking forward to this.
I have Mechcraft news as well- we now have 57 Amazon reviews, holding at 4.8 rating, 29 Audible reviews, with a 4.3 rating, and 19 Goodreads reviews, 4.3 rating.  If you’ve read Mechcraft, please give it a quick review.  It means everything.
More good news.  Mechcraft: Harbinger is now 12 chapters deep.  This is a much darker and much longer tale.  Prepare yourselves; our heroes are in trouble.
I had planned on having the first draft finished by end of the year, but I’ve been invited to participate in 2 upcoming anthologies for charity.  I’ll be contributing a horror story with an abandonment theme, and the other a ghost/haunting theme.  I’ll finish these short stories and then jump back into the sequel.
I hope you all had a fun Halloween, and a great Thanksgiving coming up.
Best regards,
Brian

Hi everyone,
Just a quick check in.  Here’s how Mechcraft is doing...

And here’s one of the latest reviews...

Have a great Labor Day, everyone

Hello readers,

Mechcraft has its first celebrity endorsement!  Jennifer Marshall, from Stranger Things and NBC’s Timeless, made a little video for the book.  Check it out here: https://youtu.be/tXe1WmFYVhg

In other news, I’ll be appearing at the upcoming San Diego Festival of Books on Saturday August 25.  If you’re in the area, swing on by.  Here’s the details: https://www.facebook.com/events/173139736714144/

Have a great rest of the week.
Brian

  I want to take a moment and thank you all once again for all the support during the July book cover of the month contest. Although we finished in 5th place, there were times when MECHCRAFT was in 2nd place. And this says a lot for a newcomer. All the books that beat us were from well established authors with a large fan base. We were the "little engine that could" and we did really well- thanks to all of you who voted multiple times. Sorry for the barrage of posts begging for votes, and I really appreciate you putting up with it. Thanks again!

I’m 5 chapters deep in writing the sequel, plugging away as fast as I can.  Mechcraft: Harbinger got really dark, really fast, and our heroes are in trouble.  :)

Thanks again,
Brian  

It’s the last week of the contest... and it’s so close! 36 votes from reclaiming 3rd place in the book cover contest. Voting has been reset for the final week.
This is it! Last week of voting for the finale. One final push.
I feel like shouting "THIS IS SPARTA!"
Please, one final time, vote for Tyler’s amazing MECHCRAFT book cover. I would love for him to get some kudos for a job well done. 
Thank you all so much:

UPDATE: LINK FIXED.
Let’s try this again...
