Next Steps II
Good evening, all!
Nothing new on the Discarded background tonight, unfortunately; still digging deep and trying to ignore Outside World distractions, but no (non-spoiler) bits have yet surfaced. Have also decided to suspend the Facebook promo events for a time, mainly due to low response, ad budget issues and the back-to-school distractions that're still to come. I'll still be sending out news and pitches wherever and whenever possible, so if you should happen to see or receive one, please help spread the word!
Speaking of promos, the recent free event for Dillinger in Charleston and For State & Country came to an end this past weekend; judging by the numbers, these two are still drawing a good deal of interest, with or without giveaways! The wait on the Obsidian & Steel promo is also soon to end; I expect to be putting it up on Amazon by 8/30 at the latest. One thing that is especially helpful with both promoting these works and refining my writing style is reader reviews, positive or negative, so if you've picked up any of the books in full or just read a little on Kindle Unlimited, please leave even a short blurb about any part you liked or disliked: characters, plot, setting, cover, anything. I learned long ago to be my own harshest critic, so don't be worried about offending with any reviews; it's how I improve!
That's all for this update. As always, read and share, and pass on any concerns or suggestions!
