This is a sample try of this service for me. Depending on how it works I will probably do more. Sorry: It is for US customers only.

Until then, if you haven’t picked up Duilleog, Volume One then head over to Smashwords to pick it up for free.

I won’t be keeping my books up for long over at Smashwords or Kobo. I’m just not generating hits there. Plus if I solo with Amazon I can enter my books in Kindle Unlimited.

New Look to the Website

donaldalliumHey, everyone. Beautiful weather outside as Spring is finally coming to Canada’s Nation Capital. If you don’t know where that is: look it up. That’s your growth and learning assignment for the day!

In celebration of rebirth and the emergence of life in all forms, I have revamped the website. Bask in its simplicity! Revel in the austere lines and beautiful colour coordination!

Also, I have opened the website up for members and reallowed comments without the need for my manual approval. Please note: I reserve the right to remove anything I find offensive. PG rating is what I want to maintain! I am praying my spam filter works this time!

Lastly, if you have read all the way down to here you will be pleased to know that Duilleog will go on sale in advance of Craobh being released on May 31, 2016. It will be a special low, low price. And, look for advanced sales opportunities for Craobh! When you pre-order, you’ll be sure to get your hands on it the moment it’s released. Craobh will be with my editor very shortly. It’s so exciting!

Can-Con in Ottawa, October 30-November 1, 2015

Who do I ask for permission?

So Can-Con is coming to Ottawa. I heard about this through the Ottawa Writer’s Circle. Some of the organiser’s belong to OWC.  So I registered already. Here’s what has me excited: I get to pitch my novel to select Canadian publishing companies. I have signed up for three and will wait to see the others. You can only sign up for three online for some reason.

One company only publishes Science Fiction and prefers Canadian content novels. So I am happily going to pitch Symbiotic Patriotic, my Sci-Fi novel. It has gathered dust, but I can breathe new life into it. This novel takes place in present day and starts in Algonquin Park before heading to Ottawa. Hopefully, this meets their desires. I LOVE this story but stopped writing it because I didn’t think I could write it properly. I’ve changed my mind. I totally can. It is a novel about someone discovering ancient nanotechnology. ‘Nuff said.

But it is Craobh I want to pitch and with it Duilleog. I would love to get picked up by a publishing house. That would make my day. Editing would come with it and hopefully a much better polish on my writing. Here’s what people don’t realise: almost everyone can write. It just comes down to just how much work someone who is professional at editing has to do to get your novel into mainstream quality for publishing. Oh, and you need to tell a good tale. But that just takes imagination.

Enough babbling. I’ve work to do.
