This one time at Writer's Camp…
I Love Mornings
I’m surprisingly awake this early in the morning. Been up since 5:00am EST, which is early for me. But it’s not so bad, really. Once you get used to waking up before dawn (and I think I see the sun starting to peek up a little bit) it’s fairly simple. But then again, I’m one of those evil “I like mornings” people who you want to beat with a wet tuna.
New design, you like? I’m not so sure about it, given how well some of the others have done. I’m still figuring out what header I want up there. For now, I’ll use the binary coding from the book cover of Corruptor. Not sure if I want to invest in a graphic artist to create a header. It’s not a lot of money, but it’s enough. Especially in this economy.
I’m wondering how I can convince people who have purchased the eArc to go over to Barnes & Noble and rate Corruptor, since they already own it. It wouldn’t hurt the sales any, and I feel kind of silly reviewing my own book. Actually, it’d be redundant, because I’d compare it to great literary works like… Twilight.
Gah, don’t let me do that, please. Really. Hit me with the tuna if I start to do that.
Got some good books to read and review for SBR this week. The first one is The Wolf Age, which is book 3 of the Morlock Ambrosius series. James Enge is a wonderful writer and I absolutely loved the first two books of the series. I have high hopes for it.
The other book I received was a bit of a surprise. I wasn’t expecting to get it, but I got a copy from Pyr Books of Vampire Empire — Book One: The Greyfriar. Reading the promo blurb and synopsis made my spine tingle. It’s almost like it’s a steampunk vampire novel, or close to it, judging from the description. If it is, I’m going to wet my pants. I am really looking forward to this book. The only vampires that are going to sparkle in this one are those that are doused with liquid nitrogen and then left out in the morning sun.
Have a great weekend, readers.
