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: firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
