New Katzine – the Eagle Issue!

New Katzine – the Eagle Issue!

The new Katzine is here! This one is the Eagle Issue – I’ve decided to stop numbering the issues and just give them different names instead, because sometimes people think they’re ongoing stories or that they need to read them in a specific order.

This issue has a four-page story about travelling to an island to see puffins and finding something unexpected. There’s also some thoughts on the subject of introversion/shyness, and a couple of surprises for some friends of mine too. Plus more of the regular features Sergio Talk, Local Business and Fears/Loves. In this issue I also start writing about my process of creating a graphic novel… a big project which will take a while to complete, but I’m going to document my progress in Katzine! If you want to get updates on how far I’ve got and what I’m learning, I’ll be putting some of that into the upcoming issues. There might also be some sneak peeks.

My copies should be back from the printer by this coming Thursday…

If you order the eagle issue before Thursday the 24th I’ll sign and doodle in the front!

Marketing and promoting a book

Marketing and promoting a book

At its most basic level, book marketing consists of the following: 1) Identifying and reaching the target audience 2) Telling them that your book is available 3) Persuading them to read it As this article is following on from my earlier article about self-publishing, it’s aimed mainly at people marketing books they’ve published independently. However,…Continue Reading
