Hereafter finally has an official release date of August 24th, 2017. It will be published through KCEditions, and available for purchase worldwide, in hardcover, softcover and e-book formats. We will be doing the official cover reveal very soon. The new banner of this site is a small preview of what’s to come with that. Deranged Doctor Design did a beautiful job on the cover, and I wanted to give them some well-deserved credit for their work.
I still have lots of bookmarks available, and will be posting a mailing address soon, where you can request an autographed one free of charge, by sending me a self-addressed stamped envelope. Who would have thought there would be a waiting list for a PO Box? I am still in the middle of proofreading and last minute tweaks, trying to make sure the finished novel is the best I can possibly make it. Seeing it in print does help when spotting those tiny flaws that are easily overlooked when reading it on a computer screen. I am crossing my fingers that all the hard work will be more than worth it.
I’ve been doing a lot of work on the site today, trying to get it ready for the release of Hereafter. Unlike most big-name authors, I maintain my own site, and add my own content. I’m a little too frugal to pay others to do simple things I can do well enough on my own.
I just got done participating in Camp NaNoWriMo, as part of Silver Beaver Cabin yet again. I met my goal for writing, but got far more done in the way of revision during this last month. Writing isn’t easy, it takes patience and persistence even more than it does talent. The novels that you read are the result of untold hours of rewrites and revisions. No one would dream of publishing that first very rough draft. Writing, like any skill, only gets better with practice.
I’d also been asked recently if Hereafter was written with any particular ‘soundtrack’ in mind. The answer would be yes. There are definitely songs that inspired certain parts of it. I have made a youtube playlist, and you can listen to it HERE.
I’m hoping to have the exact release date for Hereafter soon, and I will keep you posted as soon as I know when it will be up for preorder. I am presently looking for bloggers interested in receiving advance copies for review purposes. Please email me at: email@example.com if you are interested.
