Special Sunday Post: Time to Print? (POLL)

Hey everyone!

With the fact that it’s 2019 now, that means that this summer will mark five years since the release of my debut novel, A Moment’s Worth. While this first work of mine is not something that I would see myself writing nowadays, I still look back and admire the time and effort I put into making it what it is now.

Unlike An Absolute Mind, A Moment’s Worth is only available as an eBook. What I am wondering is that with this anniversary coming up, do you think I should at last make it available in a print form too? If I devote time to making this happen, is this something that people would want and will actually go out of their way to buy? I ask because I’m not going to do it if it’s not wanted – especially amidst everything else I’ve got going on, writing-wise.

That is why I’ve created a new poll. Please vote “yes” or “no” if you want me to make A Moment’s Worth available as a physical copy for its upcoming fifth anniversary. It only takes a few seconds and I would appreciate it if you can pass it along to others as well.

Remember: I will only do it if people really want it, so please let me know.

Special Friday Post: Black Friday Sale and the Poll

For those who celebrate Thanksgiving, I hope you all had a good Thanksgiving yesterday. For everyone else, I hope it was just as good of a day for you yesterday. I have a couple of announcements to put out prior to tomorrow’s regularly scheduled post, so let’s get it going:

First of all, in light of Black Friday, I have a little sale going on for my first novel, A Moment’s Worth. Since the sale I did for it on Amazon back on July did really well, I decided to do it again. From now through to next Friday December 4th, you’ll be able to purchase A Moment’s Worth for $1.99. I highly advise you take this opportunity to do so, especially if you haven’t read it yet. Besides, who knows when the next sale for it will be. You can go purchase A Moment’s Worth on Amazon here.

Special Sunday Post: The Poll Has a DEADLINE

In case you missed out on the previous blog posts about this (which you can check out here and here), I currently have a poll going on where people can vote on whether or not they want to see my second novel available in print as well as digital. 2016 is not that far away now and that is the year I plan to release this novel I’m currently working on.

While editing is still taking place, it’s wise to note for the past two months, I’ve begun conceptualizing what the front cover is going to look like, and I aim for this week to mark the beginning of really assembling that together into fruition. With the fact that I’m starting to dive in on that aspect of it now, naturally it’s wise to consider whether to create a back cover for the book too, and that normally applies with books that are released in print. But since I still don’t know if I should release it in print or not, that’s why I want to make the following announcement: Continue reading “Special Sunday Post: The Poll Has a DEADLINE”

Special Tuesday Post: Election Day (POLL)

If you reside here in the United States, then Happy Election Day! Contrary to what the media is making it seem like otherwise, this is not the year where we vote for president, but today is a reminder of the rights we have to actually provide voice to who we wanted to see representing our communities, our states, and our country. For those who reside outside the United States, I can imagine similar rights existing when it comes the governing bodies as your respective leaders as well.

It’s with that that I figured today would be a good day to remind everyone that the poll to vote whether or not you want my second novel to be available in print is still open. There’s still no date as to when it will close, but I still advise not to wait around too long if you consider voting, and here’s why: My second novel is to be released in 2016, and while the actual release date itself is yet to be determined, with the fact that we are in the month of November now, it’s evident to see how the new year really isn’t that far away now.

Edits are still taking place, but eventually I’m going to have to start working on the publishing aspect of the book, and I need to make sure I have all the necessary material on me ready to go (in terms of cover art, proper formatting of the manuscript, etc.). It’s not everyday an author gives its readers this kind of power, in terms of deciding what forms the novel will be published, so I encourage you to take a few seconds to vote.

Special Sunday Post: To Print or Not to Print, That is the Question (POLL)

I know that in the past it’s been slow with getting responses of any kind, but with the fact that I’m really going to be pushing this one with my social media, I hope for a better outcome.

If you’re an active reader of my blog, then you know by now that I’m currently in the editing stages for my second novel.  While it’s still not coming out for a little while, I’m already thinking ahead in terms of various aspects of it, including what format it shall be published in.  While it will for sure be available digitally like A Moment’s Worth and “The Shadows,” I’m toying with the idea of possibly making it available in print too.  I’ve done some research and generally speaking, it would be very inexpensive for me to make that happen.  The question is though, is that something people would want?  Would people want the option of getting it in a physical format?
