Hey jj cheers for the tip, went and had a look and Iiked what I saw. Btw great blog. Please forgive the delay in replying, I am idea rich and time poor at the moment, so I'm trying to spend as nuch time as possible on WIP. However, I can't resist the temptation to check in once in a while : ) Happy scribing to you.
Congrats on the upcoming release, JJ. And the media will love your military background, which is great for getting your name out there! Do you know when in 2009 yet? It takes ages, doesn't it.
Hi again JJ,
You'll find the article about publishing at http://www.ian-irvine.com/
It gives some background plus tips on promotion and marketing and how best to cope with what is to come. I'm right in the middle of the editing process on my fourth book and the buzz doesn't go away especially if you've had dreams about being a writer for a long time.
Congratulations on the book. When in 2009 is it coming out? You can look forward to that great buzz of walking into a bookshop and seeing it on the shelf. That doesn't get old. A while back I posted about Aussie Ian Irvine's The Truth About Publishing which is a great background read for the first time author. I'll be keeping an eye out for Interrogated.
