Coffee, a Treat, and a Good Book

Coffee, a treat and a good book? http://bit.ly/2QgqOLJ

I am exploring advertising ideas for the Van Helsing Paradox! Off to a good start?

The Van Helsing Paradox is Popular?

My latest work, the Van Helsing Paradox is making its way through various sites for release. I pushed it out a week or so ago through Draft2Digital, Smashwords, Google Play and of course Amazon. After all, it takes time to get the book visible, confirm links, and make sure there is a consistent pricing.

So imagine my surprise, when I learned that Scribd, a subscription based library connected with Draft2Digital, was showing my latest work as a popular download.

The Van Helsing Paradox showing as popular...

That’s great news and I am hoping this trend will continue!

The Van Helsing Paradox’s Pseudo Math

What does: 1 manuscript; 15 revision cycles; 17 chapters; 1350 annotations made during copy editing; and 63631 words add up to? Good question. The beginning of the end!

Accomplished Writer

Yesterday’s fortune said that ‘I would become an accomplished writer.‘ I am not really sure how to take that!

Frankenstein 200 Years Later

Tomorrow, 11 Mar 1818 the novel Frankenstein will be 200 years old! An interesting milestone to say the least.

This National Post article goes into detail on how the story has been interpreted over the years. Some argue on its genre, others claim it to be a feminist work and some claim its autobiographical.

What I learned from this article? Once you release a work into the wild, readers will form their own impression. That means the end effect your work has on the hearts and minds of readers is entirely out of your control.

What will people think of your work in two centuries? Who knows, but it’s important to note that even the author’s views changed over time!
