It’s like I’m everywhere

This has been a pretty busy week for me as far as interviews and other press are concerned. Lots of places you can find me if you’re into that sort of thing. And if you ARE don’t forget to check out my press page. I try to keep my list up to date with all the blogs that have been generous enough to give me an interview, review, or guest post slot.

I was really pleased (read stupid excited) to be selected to be a contender for the title of Indie Author Rockstar. If you haven’t checked this site out, I really think you should. It’s such an innovative way for indies to help each other out.

From the site:

“On the first of each month, five books are chosen at random. Those five books join the runner-up from the previous month, and those six books ‘audition’ to become the next month’s rockstar. Everyone in the community will have one month to read or sample those six books. At the end of the month, only the authors who have submitted a book to the site will vote privately (one vote per author) to select the featured author–the rockstar–for the following month.”

I’ll be doing a special week long Interview and an Excerpt feature on the other 5 authors who were selected for this month. I’m hoping to get it put together by next week so keep and eye out for that!

In a total departure from my usual comfort zone (see The Boner Assassin), I wrote a couple of erotic horrors for my friend Christian Jensen’s blog (@hororwritindad). You can read that here.

I have an interview up at Ben’s Comfy Chair.

And I’m a featured author for July on Publish or Bust.

Phew, I *think* that’s all of them.

I added a new page to the blog called Free Reads. Right now there’s not much on there, but it will grow. Fans of I Wish… might enjoy the story about Zane. It’s a little spoilery for those who haven’t read it, but nothing that will ruin your reading experience. I promise. Winking smile

In personal news, I’m moving this month. We’re packing up the minions and moving across the country to somewhere in the Augusta, Georgia area around the 25th. This, of course, means that I will be busy packing, driving, and unpacking in the weeks to come. I was pretty confident about a mid July release for the sequel to I Wish… (Your Word is My Bond), but it’s going to be at least August. I’m so sorry.

I’m also packing my art supplies so I won’t be working in my journal or on the ICAD project anymore this month. That’s an incredible bummer, but I’ve got to start packing somewhere and my art stuff isn’t something I *need*. /sigh

If you know anything about Augusta or the surrounding areas, you really HAVE to comment. I’ve never even visited so I’m flying blind here. Tell me every little thing.

Day 4- more numbers! Yay!

Right now I’m at 33 US sales, 2 UK sales = #9,300. I gave out 12 free copies today. I’m just jotting this quick like so I won’t look up the total, but if I had to guess I’d think that I’m getting close to 100 people who have bought or been given a copy. That’s a lot of potential readers. I can’t help, but feel like I’m doing good in my quest to get my book into as many hands as I can early on.

I had an exciting moment earlier today when I was telling someone what my numbers looked like. I looked up my numbers like I always do and was shocked to see that I’d hit my lowest rank yet. So you know I had to take a screen cap of this incredibly beautiful moment. It ranks up there with holding one of my own children in my arms for the first time.

Yeah, I made it into the #7,000s today. The very HIGH 7,000s, but still… I chose to think of it as my first visit to what will someday become familiar territory for me. What I’m exceedingly grateful for is that my highest numbers still are less than #12k. These are the little things that give me comfort in the idea that someday I might just be able to make a living at this writing thing.

Which is nice because when I do the math I realize that while I’ve finally gotten enough today to warrant a deposit when Amazon does their payout, it’s still only like $12. I still haven’t earned back that first breakfast, but I feel like I’m definitely heading in the right direction. I just need to keep doing what I’ve been doing except like hundreds of thousands of times. Winking smile

For those of you who are just coming to my blog for the first time and may have missed it. I’m giving away free copies of I Wish… until Sunday. Check out this post to find out the details. I feel the need to state that for the people who keep ending up on my blog because of my boner assassin post. I’m not judging you, I’m just laughing because you’ve got to be feeling ripped off if you were looking for something sexy and got THAT.

I was going to end the post on that note, but then decided that a pretty flower would be less callous and insensitive of me. I’m sorry, purveyors of smut. If I ever write a single erotic thing, you’ll be the first to know. Just leave me an email so I know how to contact you.
