VIDEO: Unboxing my proof copies

These days I make the effort to personally caption every new video, because the auto-caption does its best but is way off the mark at times.

I may one day reach back to older videos and caption them, but they don’t necessarily get watched much, and that’s probably a good thing.

ARCs of The Crown Princess’ Voyage will become available

The first two books of the Gift-Knight trilogy, side by side.

What have I been doing all this time since Fresh Fiction Daily ended?

Well, I’ve been setting up the second book of the Gift-Knight trilogy, The Crown Princess’ Voyage, in CreateSpace. I am over 50% of the way through the final (intended) edit of this first edition. I am setting up the cover, ISBN, etc.

But I’m going to withhold approval, and incidentally release, until very early May of 2017. Why? Because I want to be able to offer 6-month Advance Reader Copies to bloggers and reviewers who require that amount of time in advance.

I will privately contact many bloggers/reviewers who already accepted The Gift-Knight’s Quest for review, because they will at least have the first book in the series ahead of this one in their queue. They may have already read TGKQ and this new book picks up pretty much where the first left off.

This also means that the Wattpad early edition of TCPV has gone hidden, along with the preview edition of TGKQ, and the Tumblr edition and its table of contents are completely wiped. It was up there for early readers to enjoy, for nearly a month. If you didn’t have time, it probably wasn’t an urgent read for you, and you’re going to get a necessarily improved version by May 2017.

Indie Author Day – Saturday, October 8, 2016

This Saturday I will be selling signed copies of The Gift-Knight’s Quest at Indie Author Day, North York Central Library edition. I will also be available to sign copies you’ve already purchased and/or answer some questions. You can find me at Table 1 next to Benjamin Gabbay. But there is a lot more happening here than just me and my table of books. Info below provided courtesy of Paula Costa-Kuswanto, Youth Services Librarian, North York Central Library.

The library address is 5120 Yonge Street. North York Central Library is located on Yonge Street, south of Finch Ave and north of Sheppard. It can be found in the mall next to Mel Lastman Square. There is a food court in the mall if you would like to pick up lunch or a coffee. On Saturday the cost for the underground parking is a flat rate of $5 for the day. The parking lot can be accessed through either Beecroft Road or Park Home Ave. If you are taking the TTC, you would exit at North York Centre Station. 

The book fair runs from 1 to 4. The panel discussion runs from 1 to 2. From 2 to 3 a digital panel will be streamed live on the big screen. From 3 to 4 there will be a self-publishing workshop.
