Update- May 9 My writers group met Monday night, and we had a guest speaker who drove down from Charleston, SC. He had marketing tips and tricks to share with our group.
I was excited to have him, and we had our best attendance in months. Turns out, his tips and tricks were the same I use.
Update- May 3- Just a note to let you know that Blood on the Orchid will be free on Amazon all day, May 5. Download and enjoy it. If you do enjoy, I'd appreciate a like, and maybe even a short review on Amazon. Thanks.
Update- May 1- If you've happened by my blog, rayharrison.wordpress, you probably know that the next Wolfgang adventure is just around the corner. I have completed the first draft, and I'm about halfway through the initial edit.
Although I'm now taking chapters to my writing group for critiquing and editing, I have no plans to wait to publish the book.
I had thought of trying to go the conventional route-find an agent, hope for a publisher, and wait another year to see if it actually hit the shelves.
I've read several articles from established writers who are leaving that side and changing to indie publishing everything. I guess it gives them more control, which sounds pretty good.
Blood on the Orchid is doing pretty well, especially on Free download days!;-) I'm hoping it will pick up on regular days. The more I learn, the better it seems to do.
I'm still trying to settle on the title of the new book. I've been using National Poison, and latelly, I've thought about Probable Cause. Rosemary, my coach/editor and leader of the Zona Rosa classes she teaches around the country likes National Poison, so that's probably what I'll go with.
I just turned my ideas for the cover over to my super-creative godson to get to work on. I can't wait to see what he does with it. Hopefully, he'll have time for me. He also has two shows coming up in the Big Apple. We're very excited for him.
Tracking down a geriatric Hitler Youth assassin is going to be difficult. Tack on keeping one step ahead of the Secret Service and Wolfgang and Trammell have their work cut out—especially if they want to save the president, and not become another statistic in his ever growing wake of dead friends and acquaintances.
