I have a couple of notes to share with you regarding my last book.
First, I believe I’ve mentioned before that Under Strange Suns is up for an INDIEFAB award. I recently received information that the award process is adding a Readers’ Choice category. I don’t really know what that means or entails, but there is some sort of voting process that runs through May 20.
This is where I’m supposed to encourage you to get out and vote. Okay, get out and vote. There. The email I received had a bit more information, if you’re inclined to follow through on this. Here.
Point your fans to your book’s page on the INDIEFAB finalists website
Encourage them to leave a comment that your book is their #INDIEFABFAVE (note: commenters must login through Facebook or with a Foreword Reviews account)
The book with the most reader endorsements will be named the INDIEFAB Reader’s Choice Winner
Sorry, I know I should be out in front of this, but I’m still not comfortable with marketing and the entire, “Hey, look at me!” aspect of it.
Second note: I recently passed my twentieth year laboring in the law pits for my esteemed employer. In recognition I received a generous gift card and — and this is the relevant point — my employer commissioned an original piece of artwork. Check out the picture. That is a framed, variant cover from the talented pen of Georges Jeanty (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Batman, Serenity, etc.) Sweet, no? Beats a gold pocket watch, if you ask me. (Though I’d take a gold pocket watch too, if it were offered.)
Artwork by Georges Jeanty.
So, people, what do you think? That picture is definitely going on the wall of my den/study/library once the new house is built.
