Video Interview and other stuff

Hey, I got interviewed by Keystroke Medium this morning. Live. That’s amazingly scary. But I didn’t screw it up. 🙂

Here’s the URL: https://youtu.be/9Z-dSzeDpT8

On another subject, I realized I haven’t posted up all my new book covers. So, here they are:

Miscellaneous News Items

For those who haven’t found it yet, I have a Facebook page: @DennisETaylor2 .

And I’m on Twitter: @Dennis_E_Taylor .

I’ve been using this blog as an announcement platform, but it’s really supposed to be more of a, you know, blog. I’ll still use the mailing list for book announcements, but for updates and such, Facebook and Twitter will be my primary medium, with more detail here as necessary.

And with that in mind, we’ve contracted with Kathleen Howard to edit book 3 of the bobiverse: All These Worlds. Book 2, For We Are Many, is in production at Audible. I’m still hoping for March and June release dates, although I’m hearing some rumbling of slippage.

There will also be a preorder date on each book, and the e-book, paperback, and audio versions will be released simultaneously.

And more neat stuff

It seems Legion is on a Washington Post Best Audio Books list, as well as Omnivoracious, Amazon’s book blog, as a book to listen to this holiday season.

The editor and I have finished working on For We are Many, and I’ll be sending it in by the weekend. Of course, not much will get done over the holidays…

Paperback is Up

The paperback version of We Are Legion is up on Createspace. It usually takes a day or two for Createspace and Amazon to sync up, so you’ll be able to buy from Amazon by mid-week or so.

 

ETA: As of Wednesday afternoon, 11/2, the paperback is now on amazon.

Writers Conference Redux

I’m finally getting around to writing about the Surrey International Writers Conference, which was held last weekend. It was my very first writers conference, and I wasn’t disappointed. I had, at the back of my mind, expected the seminars to be simplistic and filled with platitudes, like too many “educational” venues.

Not even close.

This is a conference for experienced writers, and it showed. From seminars that examined the psychology of your characters, to ‘SIWC Idol’, in which the first page of your novel got the Simon Cowell treatment, it was an eye-opener. For the record, they didn’t get around to my first page in the 75 minutes available, and I was relieved more than anything else. I think perhaps three first pages got through the entire reading without getting buzzed out. Scary.

I also got my first pages critiqued by Robert J. Sawyer, which was a thrill for me as he’s one of my favorite authors. I think I managed to keep a straight face. 🙂 And he liked my opening pages, which was a huge bonus.

There are too many seminars to keep up with, of course. In each time slot, I had to make a choice between several attractive possibilities. Hopefully at least some of them will have a summary on someone’s web page.

I got the three-day package, but not the full-meal-deal. Next year, I think I’ll not only get the full package, I’ll rent a room for the two nights. All in all, it was well worth it.
