I had the true privilege to be a part of Shore Leave 37 last week. It was a nice break from working on revisions to Caught and working on the discovery draft of Images of Truth. Shore Leave is a a fan-run science fiction convention that had an absolutely awesome guest list.
I met a ton of wonderful fans of science fiction, and I had a chance to talk to a lot of those fans about The Journals of Bob Drifter. Conventions have thus far proven to be the best way to market my book and reach new readers. I’m constantly amazed at how many people are willing to give new, independent authors a chance.
This event was one of the most successful I’ve had, and I’m so grateful to the people who purchased copies of my book.
I took some time to recover. As great as it is to meet people, sign autographs, and talk about my book, it takes a lot out of me. I’m 73 percent through the second draft of Caught and four percent through the discovery draft of Images of Truth, the first book in a science fiction/fantasy serial series I plan to play with through the years. As of today, I’m back at it, happily producing about 1,000 words a day. I’m happy with the way those two projects are going. I’m even taking a quick look at a few other projects I plan on releasing in 2017, the biggest of those being The 1,200.
My next big convention is the Baltimore Comic Convention in September. I’m looking forward to it.
