Web Stuff

Hi again, not much to say this morning, but I did find myself in a few places on the internet. Thought someone might be interested.

Let's see. 

Alex announced the release of my Novelette today, thank you, sir. Always a good idea to stop by and see his site, the guy is everywhere, it can be... unnerving. I'm glad he has chosen to use his omnipresence for the cause of good.

Ellie Garratt also made mention of the new release on her post today, I'm a bit new to Ellie's blog, but she is hosting the Star Trek blogfest, which of course forced me to to drop my ban on participating in them. I mean, I can't not participate in that, Star Trek was my gateway into Science Fiction.

Let's see, Michael Offutt did a review of my novelette and posted it today as well. He's recently joined the ranks of the "I'm kind of a big deal" people when he signed a publishing contract with Double Dragon. I'm glad he still takes time to hang out with the little folk. 

Still, his review is very kind, I thank him for it, it's a curious thing to know someone is reading what you've written. The experience can sometimes be, well, I already said unnerving earlier, so it can be... disconcerting.

I hate that the weekend is over. It goes by so fast.

Ellie and Alex are awesome, aren't they? Gotta check out your tale now.

I'd buy this book on title and cover alone. Sounds great!
Ellie and Alex are from a different planet, didn't you know? Able to divide themselves into separate entities. That is why they are everywhere.
Reminds of the Chicken Man program. "He's everywhere. He's everywhere!"
But I digress.

LOL I'm most definitely not a big deal Rusty. The forums for Double Dragon say that modest sales of 200 books a year is what is to be expected from "most" writers. It's just nice to not be writing in the dark anymore.

I'm glad I had the opportunity to find your blog, Rusty. I'm always happy to give a shout-out to both new and more established authors. Can't wait to read your Star Trek post!

Of course I'm going to tout your book - it rocks! This Ninja only fights for good.
Need to go read Ellie's post now!

Word of mouth is the best promotion of all.

Isn't it wonderful when people talk about you behind your back and it's actually good? You're still on my list to by. I just need to pick up an Amazon card. :)
