…Rockie Writin’ High… I’m on the Author’s Pink Cloud, and I ain’t comin’ off any time soon…


Crooked Cat Publishing…when yeez have been kicking around as long as this ol’ Jurassic, there’s not much left, really, to get the blood pumping with excitement… but yesterday, was an exceptional day… my friends at Crooked Cat Publishing contracted with me to run with the other books in my Jack Calder crime thriller series, making it a slam-dunk for all three of the current titles… ‘but wait a wee minute’, I hear yeez say, ‘isn’t Master Gallacher a supposed self-publishing advocate?’… so, is this a ‘sell-out’?, a ‘crossing of the floor of the Sacred Scribblers House?’‘what about all this punching into the SOSYAL NETWURKS as a self-publishing personage to keep yer <platform-building> alive?’… relax, relax, relax… step back, take a deep breath, Mabel… let me tell yeez a bit about how the good folks at Crooked Cat operate… the marital team of Stephanie and Laurence Patterson run the operation as a cutting-edge, hybrid publishing entity… crackling presence on the eBook channels… and accessibility to the print markets as well… precisely where this quill-scraper has been targeting all this time… I have incessantly and  forcefully stressed that regardless of whether an author is represented by an Agent and /or a Publisher, the lion’s share of the promotional and marketing activity still rests squarely on his or her literary shoulders… NUTHIN changes in that regard… the involvement in the internet merry-go-round remains an essential, nay, an imperative part of yer armoury… what Crooked Cat brings to me, and the rest of the immensely talented bunch of writers in the Cattery, is the broader sharing of the weight of ‘being present’… professional publishing people packing precisely pertinent practices… and the first present I get is an editor, in the guise of the splendid Maureen Vincent-Northam… ergo, what I’ve got this morning is that marvellous feeling… Rockie Writin’ High… I’m on the Author’s Pink Cloud, and I ain’t comin’ off any time soon…  see yeez later… LUV YEEZ!
