Okay, first off I have a correction to make on the numbers of the free promo: Ice was actually downloaded 246 times! I had forgotten to check the sales from the Amazon sites of other countries. It’s a mistake I’ll never make again, lol!
Now, my upcoming book signing: On September 14th, in Downtown Tulsa (that’s in Oklahoma, for those of you who don’t know), there’s going to be this cool festival going on called “Chalk Fest”. Not only will there be chalk artists, but there will be bands playing. During all this, I will be having a book signing in Decopolis. It’s a unique store on the corner of 6th and Boston. It’s so cool. It doesn’t just carry books; there’s paintings, and other miscellaneous items. It really is awesome, and the owners are really nice, too. (THEY SELL A DISAPPEARING TARDIS MUG! I swear, my inner Doctor Who fan/child died and went to heaven when I saw it.)
Okay, here I was going to talk about some stuff in my personal life, but I felt like it didn’t really fit with everything else, so I’m going to end this post here. If you want to read my random ramblings, just click on to the next post.
(Well, that’s a very rude way to start. Hello everybody, and welcome!)
(Now back to 149…)
I have exciting news to share: recently the Kindle version of Ice was on a free promotion for two days…and was downloaded 149 times! That’s so much more than the number of sales thus far, so that is a pretty big deal to me. Though Ice is no longer free, it is only $2.99.
Thank you to everyone who downloaded it! Please leave a review on Amazon.com so that people will know your thoughts on the book.
In other Ice-related news, I am planning a contest in the VERY near future! Here’s a preview for you: one of the prizes will be a gift card for Amazon.com! Yay for free money!
And after the contest, I will start work on the first trailer for “Ice”!
Which means I need to start looking for actors. O_o (Just a bit worrisome…just a little.)
Okay, I think I’m going to leave things here so I can work on the sequel. I will start two series of blog entries soon: one will be about each character in Ice and how I created them, and the other will be about commonly misused words and their confused spellings. (Can anyone say ‘BLOND’? Or should I say, spell.)
I must apologize for my severe technological incompetency which has put this blog in a constant state of vacancy. “Ghost blog” explains it quite well.
But no more!
Even if slowly, it will surely be different as I have now gotten at least a decent grip on this WordPress thing-a-ma-bobber. (Did I say decent? Maybe “basic” is more like it. And is WordPress one word, or two?) So, my theme may change once or twice, but most likely more minor changes, like fonts or my background color.
As I have promised before, I will be posting exclusive content: deleted sections from my book, character bio’s, and more. I will also be giving updates on the sequel to Ice. In the mean time, I recommend getting familiar with the first book and it’s characters.
Don’t forget, there are many ways you can purchase your copy of Ice: Amazon.com, in eBook form from the Kindle store, you can order from your local bookstore, and CreateSpace.com. I’ll post the link to the latter since it’s a great way to discover new authors, as well as some familiar names who have chosen to publish through CreateSpace. https://www.createspace.com/4104463
