Hello again, it has been awhile and I wanted to catch you up on what I’ve been up to these past several months.
I’ve submitted my upcoming novel “Cataclysm Epoch” for consideration in the 2017 William Faulkner – William Wisdom Creative Writing Competition in New Orleans. I’ll know if it made the semi-finals on September 25, and I’m pretty excited about this. The contest is held annually and has several categories including fiction novels, non-fiction novels, novellas, essays, short stories, even poetry. I’ll keep you posted on what happens!
In addition, I’m not just sitting here waiting for September 25 to roll around… I’ve started another novel! This is a sequel to “Cataclysm Epoch” and the second book of my sci-fi trilogy. I’m 46000 words into the first draft so far and it’s going well. I have a feeling I’ll be writing in some regard about this character for a long time to come.
And speaking of writing and books, here’s what I meant by the “needing help” part of this post title. I’m looking for a special group of people that can help me push my writing to the next level. I want to send you copies of my books, starting with “Cataclysm Epoch” if you’re willing to read and write a review for them. In return, I’m willing to send you copies of my books before they’re published, for FREE. Also, I’m putting together some great giveaways like e-readers and gift certificates that you’d be eligible for. And I’ll even mention your name in the acknowledgements at the front of the book. There’s no cost to you at all, just a little time and all the free books from me I can churn out, and I’ve got a lot coming up, a sci-fi trilogy for starters!
So, to recap: this group would get the following:
- Free advance copies of my upcoming novels
- Chances to win prizes like e-readers, gift cards, signed books
- Mentions at the start of my book
Sound good? Interested? Just head over to the Krewe of Paul sign-up page and sign up for the Krewe of Paul!
Don’t wait too long, though… I’m only taking a limited number of people into this group. Don’t miss out on all these free books and great giveaways!!!
