North Coast Voice Magazine

I mentioned here about a certain local (alternative) newspaper that was going to do an article about me and Night School.

Now that it’s official I can tell you about it.

North Coast Voice Magazine will be doing a review of Night School and an article about me for their Feb. 4, 2009, issue.  The book will be featured in a column by Sage Satori, called, ‘Hot Off The Press.’  They will also be advertising my book signing at Visible Voice Books on Feb. 7, 2009 from 1:00 – 4:00 pm.

North Coast Voice Magazine is available all over Northeast Ohio.  You can normally find their ‘bins’ next to the daily newspaper.  Although, if you don’t live in the area and would like to read the article, you can do so by visiting their website on Feb. 4th.  If you would still like a ‘hardcopy’ of the newspaper, let me know and I’ll see what I can do about sending you one.

As a reminder, you can always find out my latest book signing events and appearances, by clicking here.

What’s going on, Part Deux

As the time approaches when I will be able to tell you where to ‘pre-order’ Night School, I thought I would give you another update to what is currently going on.

1)  Arranged a book signing for mid-2009.  There will of course be others before then, but I have to wait until all the book distributors have the book in stock, so that the bookstores can order them for events.  I will of course keep you posted on these, under Appearances/News, to your right.

2)  I was asked by another magazine, today, for an interview.  Once I have done the interview and know exactly which issue of the magazine it will appear in, I will let you know.

3)  A new excerpt of Night School is now posted under Freebies.  Go check it out!

Other than those things, I have been keeping busy today with continuing to write the short story about a Mummy, I mentioned in my previous post. 

Also, remember the second to last part of ‘Jacob’s Mind’ (Free Serialized Short Story) will be posted tomorrow.

What’s going on…

There are a few things I would like to update you all on.

1) I was contacted by a new magazine (can’t say which one, yet) that will debut early next year.  They inquired with me about the possibility of them doing a feature on me in their Oct 09 issue, with an interview, short story, etc.  Additionally, they asked if I would be interested in writing a ‘review’ for them.  I, of course, said, yes – to just give me the details and that I would come up with something.

Once these are set in stone, I will of course let you know.

2) I mentioned here about my short story, ‘The Ringmaster’ being published in the Nov. edition of Orion’s Child Magazine.  I said I would update you all on the link so you could read it, but it hasn’t went live as of yet.  Once I find out what’s going on, I will let you know.

3) Began another step in the promotion and marketing of Night School by contacting libraries here in Ohio and around the rest of the US, asking them to pre-order the book from the publisher and place it on their shelves.

4) I mentioned here about me working on a Chapbook.  Currently, a publisher in the UK is reviewing it.

5) There is a film producer that is currently reviewing the short stories that are making up the Chapbook.

With everything that is going on, I haven’t had much time to write anything new, especially not the new novel I was working on before Night School was accepted for publication.  Although, I am in the middle of a creepy short story about a Mummy, that I hope to have done by the end of the week.  I’ll then start shopping that around to different magazines, as well.

Hope everyone is doing well and don’t forget about the Contest!
