There are always exciting things happening in our world of indie authors! Here is a news flash from my friend Jessica Wren.
Cover Reveal for The Solomon Project
Good morning, and I would like to extend an invitation to join me as I launch my second novel, a paranormal dystopian/historical fiction combo called “The Solomon Project.” I started this novel for NaNoWriMo after carrying around the idea for years. I don’t think I’ve ever had more fun writing a book.
The novel revolves around Eddie Ruiz, one of the so-called “solomons” who, under a cruel social experiment called The Solomon Project, is one of the approximately 15% of males spared mandatory sterilization at birth.
10/23/15 was my book release party, and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. I met a lot of great new people, both readers and authors alike, and have more books I’m interested in reading…which makes no sense because I have about 15 books on my to-be-read list as it is. But, one can never have too many books, right? Right!
You know, a day like a release day is one of those days that authors live for, and not just because it’s a party starring us. It’s because, as soon as we make notes for a book and start typing, this day marks our achievement of having completed said book, of having going through rewrites and edits, waking up in the middle of the night when we’ve just realized how we will pull the entire plot together, chuckling to ourselves or even crying to ourselves as we write out a scene, and many times of having to tell our own families “Not now, I’m working, okay?
All right. Two personal blog entries in a row. Time to get
my head back in the game.
Writing updates: My sequel toSURREAL ECSTASYis still in
the publication process. I’m currently at almost 50,000 words for theDAYDREAMERsequel. That’s my top priority right now, but it’ll take a bit more
time because I have some major renovating to do on its manuscript. I also have
a new book of poetry I self-published not too long ago. It’s a kind of sampler
of 50 of my favorite poems over the last 20-some odd years.
