TaleFlick and Blackberry Book Tours Updates

Things have been quiet here on the blog front, but it would be a mistake to think that means I haven’t been pounding away at the anvil of creation, promotion, and planning. In addition to putting the finishing touches on my next collection of short horror stories, I’ve been doing my best to apply myself to the marketing of my assassination novel, The Portable Nine, and my children’s fantasy novel, The Maker-Man of Merryville.

Henry Roi’s Blackberry Book Tours has taken on the task of connecting The Maker-Man with enthusiastic reviewers, so it’s been gratifying to see those reviews start to roll in. It’s my first virtual book tour, and I’ve been very impressed with the whole operation. But it isn’t going to stop with reviews. Stay tuned for interviews in the near future as well.

The Portable Nine, on the other hand, has now been assessed by TaleFlick, who considers the potential of novels for adaptation to film and television, as well as putting the work in front of actual movie producer types. The result so far is an active pitch page for my novel of morally ambiguous mercenaries. Please have a look here.

I expect there to be more information before long about a book tour in support of The Portable Nine as well, so be on the lookout for that. There’s always a lot going on, especially when it seems a little too quiet around here.

I’ll close with links to a few particularly insightful recent reviews of my work and then let you get back to your gardening or cooking or banjo playing … or reading!

The Maker-Man of Merryville (children’s portal fantasy novel)

Imperfect Lodgings (poetry collection)

(The review is short but sweet!)

Till next time, readers. Keep it on the dark side.
