Going to try selling some books…

There’s a Tori happening next week…a Finnish market.

As my books are set in Finland AD 1019, I have rented a table to try to sell some books next Sunday.

I had some good sales last time I went in 2014 and now there is Book the Second: DAGGER available so…with a super quiet weekend at the hotel, I, at my lovely Bride’s urging, will attend and put on my salesman’s hat.

We had a fun time at the last Tori and this one has 2 things that make it fun:

  1. It is coupled with an antique Car Show and
  2. It is being held at Saima Park which is where we held our wedding reception almost 26 years ago!

Anyone in the mid-Massachusetts area come on by to say hello! (If you do stop by, you will be subjected to my sales pitch…fair warning!)

Also, I am looking for other gatherings along these lines to sell & sign books and get sales moving. I don’t do enough of these events so if anyone hears of things through the winter in the Mass/New Hampshire area please let me know!

Perilously close now! DAGGER is on the horizon!

I have designed the paperback cover for Book Two of the Hunted Mage Trilogy! There is a proof in the mail so that I can make sure every little bit is just right.

There was one miserable point in HUNTSMAN history where I failed to inspect such things properly and got 20 books in the mail  that were too pixelated to sell. Tisn’t a mistake ya make twice…

Dagger Createspace CoverSo…I am in exciting times. All of the self-fu skills I earned during the making of Book One are still there…a tad rusty, but coming back slowly but surely.

I now write my novels in the format style I need to use to convert quickly to e-book or paperback version so that saves a bit of time.

Little known cover design fun-fact when working with a program called Photoscape…sit down and build your cover ALL AT ONCE! If you save and return…all your elements are locked and uneditable.

I KNEW this…I really did…but did I think it through?  No. But it was okay. I only lost 45 minutes to the process.

Because of all the stress of HUNTSMAN’s release in 2012, it has been much more fun doing BOOK 2.

Christmas presents, Ladies & Gents! They’ll be ready!
