First, until March 25 my novel, Legend of the Mystic Knights, is free for the Kindle. My publisher, Safkhet Publishing has decided to have a “Spring Cleaning”, this means many of the Kindle books put out by them is now Free. Make sure to check out all the other books there by some great authors.
Giving a copy of your book for free is a way to generate interest in your work. Most novels must go through a process of building a readership. When this readership gets to a certain point, then word of mouth and reviews help promote the sales of that book. This process can take a very long time, but giving the book away for a period of time shortens the time it takes to build up that readership.
The other big news is I will be appearing at the Upstate Comic Con, in Ogdensburg, NY on Friday March 27. This will be the first time as an author that I will be meeting with my readers. For more information about the Upstate Comic Con, check out the sponsors of this event on their Facebook page or this article.
As many of you know already, I was a pro-wrestler. I have done numerous appearances and meet and greets, but those were always as an alter ego WAR. This will be the first time I appear as myself for such an occasion. I am excited about going to this event, but also apprehensive about this going well.
This event is unique for me, in that I will not at least be going cold turkey as a wrestler. In conjunction of me appearing as an author, I also will be selling tee-shirts to benefit the Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame. . I use to wrestle a lot in the area where the event is located, so this will allow me not to go totally without some influence from wrestling at this event. I look forward to seeing some of my fans from my wrestling days up there.
If you are live near Ogdensburg, NY, I hope to see you at the Upstate Comic Con.
Next time: We go back to the movie making.
