Here we are talking to the students at Marin Academy. Our talk was about self-publishing and genre fiction, and we did a writing exercise using the elements of mystery and fantasy. Great fun!
Next Tuesday we’re participating in the annual LitFest at Marin Academy, doing a presentation on writing, genre, and self-publishing.
We’ve had a look back over our first year as Luminous Creatures Press and were pleased by what we saw! During 2013 we:
*published four books: two collections of short stories, a novella, and a novel.
*got some lovely reviews of our books on Amazon, Goodreads, and book blogs
*made great connections with other writers and readers via social media
*did a couple of interviews about our work
*did a guest blog post with Indie Jane
We also learned a couple of important things:
*finding readers, though key, is a big challenge
*marketing is a mystery
Here’s what to expect in 2014:
*paperback versions of books
*a new novel set in the same world as The Velocipede Races
*the first two books in a new fantasy series
*the next Regency Magic Book: Margaret Dashwood and the Enchanted Atlas
*audiobooks (Beth is dusting off her voice-over acting skills as we type)
*a contest for writers
Amazon has The Velocipede Races on sale in print for $1 off the list price.
