…Authors …hello!… is it me you’re looking for?…

…2014 has been a magnificent twelve months for this ol’ Jurassic writer… and as the dawn of 2015 lurks, I’m acutely aware of how ‘comfortable’ I now ‘wear’ my dual hats of ‘Author’ and ‘Blogger’… ‘fess up time… I’ve been blessed with more good fortune than some, with the manner in which my wee Jack Calder crime thriller series has seen aggregate downloads/sales exceeding 80,000 over the past four years…all on the self-publishing channel that is the Great God Amazon Kindle… comes now the next natural step in the development of my ‘writing business strategy, with the contractual engagements with the wunnerful folks over at Crooked Cat Publishing, Stephanie and Laurence Patterson… I’m excited with the prospect of the re-launch of all my fiction titles through the good graces of their splendid Publishing House… mid-February 2015 is the penned-in date for the first blast… and here’s the beauty of it… the excellent hybrid offerings from Crooked Cat straddle the eBook market, with which I’m familiar, and adds the prospect of print outlets also…. great stuff… but the blogging element continues apace… and I’ll let yeez into a wee (non)-secret… as a contracted quill-scraper, I fully expect to be as much involved in the promotional aspects of the business as I have been up until now… and that’s fabulous!… coz, without the blog and the attendant SOSYAL NETWURK drumbeat, the chances of being ‘heard above the noise’ are minimal at best… if readers don’t know where to find yeez… if readers don’t know about yer masterpieces… if readers don’t learn about YERSELVES as persons, yeez are doing yerselves an injustice… I recently published a short thing-y that covers how this old turtle has managed to use just a handful of the virtual access channels (I’m too busy to do more than a few, so I selected those that I could (sort of) understand, and went with these)… let people know where to find yeez… as Lionel says above, …hello!… is it me you’re looking for?… the guide, SELF-PUBLISHING STEPS TO SUCCESSFUL SALES is clocked below…see yeez later… LUV YEEZ!
