It has been a while since I've contributed to deviantART, and a while since I gave up my membership, so I apologize for the anaesthetic blog post. However, it feels dutiful to inform a community of artists as to a recent accomplishment of mine, if only to wave my arms a bit and say 'Hey, look over here! I've done it and so can you!'
This is all to say that I've finally self published.
The Bridge has been distributed slowly but surely over the past month to over fifty friends, and I've more orders on the horizon waiting to be met. Additionally, I have converted the book into a few ebook formats to make it clear that I am willing to let the book finally leave my bosom and enter the real world.
This post serves to accomplish three things.
1. It seeks to inform aspiring writers that things aren't that bad, and are rather quite easy. I would be more than willing to help out a few aspiring writers in the self-publication process.
2. It seeks to advertise, only slightly, the book itself, in the case that anyone is interested in taking a glance at it. The Bridge follows the tale of a young man who, through whatever fortune attaches itself to his life, finds himself homeless. In struggling to cope with these states of affair, he is forced to come to terms with the reality surrounding him and the lies which have created him. Let me know if you are interested in purchasing an ebook or paperback via the note system.
3. It seeks to request reviewers. Nothing helps growth in any business like word of mouth. If you have history in writing or reviewing, I'd be more than honoured to enlist your services with regard to my book. Reviewers receive free Ebooks from which to review (I sadly cannot afford to distribute pbk copies for free).
If any of these things entice you, please send me a note and I will get back to you as shortly as I can (even if I do not frequent dA too often, I do check for notes and comments reasonably often).
All the best and warmest regards,
