Author Interview

Another great thing happened Sunday marketing wise. SPEAK UP LIBRARIAN a blog by the only librarian who will never tell you to shhhh, ran an author interview after doing a review for "Dying Embers". It is available HERE. The interview was fun to prepare for and I only missed a few grammatical errors in my part of it. (so embarrassed) 
Click the link and enjoy! 
On another note I saw this today. Anyone have any clue what it is? It was found at about 7000ft on an old road in an area that has never been logged.

Time Travel - A Science Fiction Staple

Human beings (it is nearly universally agreed) can only travel in one direction through the fourth dimension. However imagination has been pulling us back and forward through said dimension for generations. From the famous "The Time Machine"  to an exasperated Doctor explaining that time is not a line but a "wibbily-wobbly timey-wiemy thing" the concept of being able to escape our slow and inevitable track along the fourth dimension has captivated both science and science fiction alike. Of course back in the  80's this gave rise to the "Back to the Future" series which postulated time travel to the past, then a few years later to the far distant future of 2015. So here we are. Hoverboards are limping along in their infancy but they are here. Flying car are also available but too impractical for common use. Meanwhile "Jaws" does indeed have a 3-D version available.

Getting the Word Out
So as part of the deal with the publisher they handle the printing and the shipping and I do the marketing. Part of that is this website and blog, part of that will be getting reviews from independent book reviewers, and a large part will be contacting radio shows and newspapers. So now I have a list of newspapers in every state in the US and I really should get a list of Canadian newspapers to now that I think of it. I will be trying to get the larger papers to do reviews of my work and the smaller papers to carry the human interest story I will make about it. 
Then there are the radio shows. Hmmm, I wonder if I could get an interview on NPR?

For better or worse I do appreciate feedback.  ALWAYS.
The reasons why really got driven home last night and today. I got an e-mail from one of the bloggers who agreed to review "Dying Embers" for me. She pointed out a problem with the formatting and sent a picture. After nearly two hours of frustrating formatting and searching the internet I discovered the answer was a 30 second fix that involved clicking a few buttons. At that point I had to get to bed so re-sending all the files had to wait until the next day. Now that is done and I can send out new requests with the better format.

Is this group based on anything?
I'm quite surprised I received an invitation to join without any knowledge. ^^;

It is the official DA page for the story I wrote "Dying Embers" bookstart.mquills.com/dying-em….  A lot of my watchers expressed interest in the story during the creation process and the book will be released in paperback and e-book form in a month or so. So I created this page so that the people who were encouraging me during the writing and submission processes would have a place to come and discuss and such. 
There is a synopsis here dying0embers.deviantart.com/ar… and the first of the preview chapters is up with more to follow.

Ahghgharghiadhgi;ds I'm so glad there's a group for this now! :)

I need to make more art now. Probably something with "Biologist Love", since I haven't drawn her yet.

Well here it is! 
The urge to create is a strange force. It can come at you out of nowhere.
