Thanks to All Who Bought Echo! And BIG THANKS to Melissa, Barbara, Ian, Lorna, [anonymous], Lisa, Meg, Matt, Bobby, F.T., Alice Smith, Leslie Coop, Richard, Shauna, Sydney, Pam, Jessica, Angela, Kiesa, Ross, Keith, Alice, Daina, Daniel, Yolanda, Trace, Books4me, Vince, Laurie, DAE, Jace, Matthew, and Siobhan for posting AMAZING reviews on Amazon!!! Ashley too for the 5 star on Nook! I’d like to reiterate that leaving a positive review for any author is the equivalent of leaving $100 tip at a restaurant (I know some authors who’d actually pay that much for a good review). Although I sincerely appreciate any love you leave me on Amazon, please consider leaving a review for ANY author you know, simply as a random act of kindness…because it’ll mean the world to ’em! (A good place to start are those I’ve listed—a few of them are authors. Let me know if you want me to put you in touch with ’em and I’ll be more than happy to do so! And no, you don’t need to have purchased their book to leave a review on Amazon; you simply needed to have used Amazon at one time or another to leave what’s called an “unverified purchase” review. If you purchased their book at the store or on another eReader, you can still leave a review for them.)
News: Kor’Thank sample chapters are coming; I’m about 75% done with the prologue. Once I polish it up, I’ll throw it on dirtyscifibuddha.com. Echo 3 has a new cover coming, basically a depiction of my favorite scene in Echo. Echo 4 is coming along; I chop at least 1000 words off every day, and when it’s not the weekend, I shoot for more. Just got word from my editor that Echo 1 and 2 look good, so I’m gonna pay him some duckets and then get busy with the paperback stuff through Ingraham books. Jeez, a lotta irons in the fire! Between marketing, drafting, editing, and admin stuff, this writing stuff has seriously become like a real job! Okay, I still gotta throw 250 words onto Kor’Thank, and I still gotta chop my 1000+ words for the day off Echo 4. If you’re a writer, then I wish you inspired drafting and insightful editing!
