Been having a few issues with my internet service and wanted to take a moment to touch base on all the things happening around here…
A Footnote for Tomorrow is now available for $0.99 an ebook and the paperback will drop.down to around $11 or 12 in the coming weeks on Amazon.
Ghost in the Reflection-Letters to Erin is almost complete. It had been discussed as a November release which is very realistic, but I am contemplating pushing it back to the first week of January and adding more bonus content to the manuscript. I would like to everyone’s opinion on that thought please.
Belladonna Literary Arts Magazine is set to open a call for submissions of poetry, art and/or photography in the coming weeks. Keep an eye open for that. Follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for more details and information.
Hopefully my connection issues will be resolved in the next couple of days or next week at most.
Where has this summer went? I feel like I have blinked and everytime it has changed to a new month. I didn’t realize how much I have neglicted posting on this site until just today. SO that said, let me begin by trying to get everyone caught up to the chaos that is my life.
A Footnote for Tomorrow is still readily available on both Amazon.com and TheBookPatch.com as well as from the store located on my poet facebook page. Amazon no longer has exclusive rights to the ebook, thus the price has dropped and is beginning to become available on more sites. It will be set up for distribution in the very near future. So great things still are on the horizon for it.
A few new facbook pages have finally began to surface, Planet Productions Poetry, my publishing company is the latest page. Belladonna Literary Arts Magazine has been on the site for a few, but I have failed to acknowledge it, shame on me. It is a literary arts journal that will debut this coming January. Although owned by the same publishing company, I do not run it. It is headed by the talented editor-in-chief Brandy Kellams, an excellant editor I’ve known since college. Its newsletter is due to be released soon. It’s first edition will be in January 2020, follow it and keep up with that information from there. I would love to read and see the poetry, art and photography of the talented poets, artists and photographers that follow me.
I have recently posted a few new poems from my soon to be released collection Ghost in the Reflection – Letters to Erin on channillo.com. I would love the feedback of any who subscribe and follow me there. This collection is slated to be released in November 2019. I’m very excited for it, unlike A Footnote, these are more recent and relevant works of mine that are definitely clawing at me to get out and be read.
Stay tuned, I promised some awesome promotional activities that I am finishing up the final touches on. Some great things to be awarded to all who participate.
Be sure to check out the new poems posted today on my channillo.com series called Ghost in the Reflection. This series serves as an idea building grounds for the upcoming book. Definitely worth reading.
If you haven’t signed up and subscribed to my series on channillo yet, you can do so to follow it and hundreds of other great works in progress of many genres.
In about a week my exclusitivity agreement with Kindle expires. To celebrate I will do a promotion or two reducing the price. I will also be finally getting distribution set up and explore a few different avenues in addition to Amazon of course.
At the start of the year I will be unveiling a new literary ezine called Belladonna and have enlisted the assistance of a few old university journalism classmates from my days as an advertising manager at the school paper. We will release a more detailed statement in the coming month.
I have been writing the last several pieces for my next collection Ghost in the Reflection: Letters to Erin which we are hoping to release early in Novemeber.
CURRENT PROMOTION. Have reduced the price of the ebook on amazon for the week. Each price has a limited time at that price. For 18 hours it will be $0.99, for 18 hours it will be $1.99, for 18 hours it will be $2.99 then return back to normal. June 21st to 28th.
Cool little thing that happened: While messing around bored this morning, I searched on google to see if I could find myself in the results. I did this the day before I released A Footnote for Tomorrow and it impressed me to see that I did not pop up in the first 15 pages of search results. Today that was no longer the case, instead I had became the entire first page of results. Damn. I’m not that big for being findable on the grid. However, I found some pretty cool things that I don’t remember doing, but I did. http://indiebookbutler.com/james-f-miller-ii/
