It’s almost May #wheredoestimego

Wrapping up the publishing blogs today by wishing everyone best of luck with their adventures. I have made my decision and will be embarking on self publishing this year. That doesn’t mean I won’t ever approach a traditional publisher again. In fact I have one in mind for my super hero series and hope to submit them in the second half of the year. For now though I am working on two manuscripts that I really want to self publish. This is also because I have some other cool ideas in mind and self publishing will be best for those. I have lots of work to do and will keep everyone updated through this blog!

That’s where I am at the moment. I have a to do list longer than my arm and so many more ideas. Still it’s all fun and will be worth it in the long run. Any way let’s move on from publishing and look at the next part of being an author. This is still the biggest learning curve for me, but May is Marketing Month! So I will examine all forms of marketing and discuss what I have learnt!!! Lots to do here. For now I am going to leave with a link to a recent interview I did!!! Yay so love interviews, make me feel like an author!!!! Okay I am an author, but it’s still great to do an interview:

Have fun!!!!

Rejection #partofawriterslife

576392_10150860055273112_1166455246_n

Handling rejection will be a part of any author’s life if they choose the traditional path. In some ways I think it’s important to try this path simply to get the rejection. Does that sound strange? Let me explain. Rejection makes you re think your product. Why didn’t it get picked up? Was it too long, not well enough edited, confusing or have holes in the plot? I’m not saying your story has all these things, just that sometimes it takes an external influence to make you rethink and improve your work. The only problem with rejection rom publishing companies is they don’t tend to give a lot of feed back. Most of the time it’s just not what they are looking for. Still some are fantastic and give a few hints. One that I put my first novel in to simply wanted 600 word action picture books. Which are of course the hardest to write. Still if I ever get one done I will send it to them. Of course some rejection may be because the submission guidelines were not read carefully. Maybe your story wasn’t what they wanted, maybe they inly take solicited manuscripts. Read each guideline carefully before submitting. YOu may just be wasting your time.

I have had three books picked up by Strategic book group (semi traditional publishing) which was great but here are some tips to submitting to traditional publishers:
1. Read submission guidelines
2. Have your work assessed if not edited by an outside person first – make it the best product you can.
3. Spend time on a really fantastic cover letter – sell your product
4. Be patient – some take a very long time.
5. While waiting keep writing – start a new project.
6. NEVER GIVE UP!!!!

I hope that helps – have fun!

The Buzz

“I bought this book to read with my younger brother and we both loved it. I always try to encourage him to keep up with his reading but he’s usually not that big of a fan of books most of the time. To my surprise, he quickly became immersed into the story and I could tell that he was having just as much fun as I was reading it together. The story keeps up at a smooth and fast pace, which is of course very important in children’s books, and it’s adventurous and written really well. To say that I am satisfied with ‘Skycastle, the Demon, and Me’ would be an understatement, and I will definitely be keeping an eye out for more releases by the author” ~ 5 Star Review, Jane L., Amazon

“The characters are well created and the story is exceptionally good. My great granddaughter just started reading it this morning and she is already pretty engrossed in the story. Great book. I definitely recommend.” ~ 5 Star Review, Beverly C., Amazon

“Very well written story. Witty and charming for both myself and my son who is in 3rd grade. A great creative adventure about a demon and a boy. Looking forward to more in this series. I would highly recommend this book for kids around the 3rd grade. It’s action packed and holds my sons interest. Filled with the stuff he loves. Thanks!” ~ 5 Star Review, M. Harbin, Amazon

Where does the day go #neverenoughtime

1526704_774685129209747_5967374641774858471_n

No time for meditation now. I can’t believe how quickly time flies and no it’s not all fun stuff. Although we had a great surprise holiday, which did put me back in terms of writing. However it was a much-needed break. Back into action now. With so much to do. It’s almost the end of April so I need to wrap up my publishing blogs. I’m pretty sure I haven’t answered too many questions. I hope I have shared useful information. Like everything the best thing to do is ask someone. Actually it’s best to ask lots of people and then decide what works for you. No one person can give you the definitive answer simply because there isn’t one. Work out al the pros and cons of both traditional and self publishing. I am actually laughing as I write that because the more I research the more I believe self publishing will soon be the traditional way! Well close enough any way. The most important thing is to get a finished product you are proud to call yours!

DSC_0081

The journey to that finished product will be hard work no matter which way you go, but it will be worth it in the end. So don’t give up at the first rejection. Use that as inspiration to improve yourself and keep going. More on handling rejection soon. We’ve all been there, so should be fun to have a look at that. In the mean time I need to catch up on all my jobs so have fun!

The Buzz About the Noah Zarc Books

Book 1: “Pease’s strength as a storyteller lies in his ability to connect multiple time periods imaginatively, as well as Noah’s excited, fast-paced narration.” ~ Publishers Weekly

Book 1: “If I had read this book at age 10, I think it would have made me love SF just as much as reading Asimov did. If you like the non-stop action and humor of Rick Riordan’s Olympians books, I think you’ll also like Noah Zarc.” ~ Sher A. Hart, book blogger and author

Book 2: “This is another great mind-bender. The wild time jump details are fabulously thought out and cause some unexpected results.” ~ Michelle Isenhoff, Children’s Author

Book 2: “A well-written, adventurous read for young readers and even adults, Noah Zarc blasts through space and into your imagination.” ~ TKristufek, Amazon Reviewer

Book 3: “I was completely captured by the characters, the action and the issues and questions: set in fantasy but integrating concepts and engaging readers with a fun tale that teaches as it entertains.” ~ Gaele, Amazon Reviewer

 

About the Author: D. Robert Pease

D. Robert PeaseD. Robert Pease has been interested in creating worlds since childhood. From building in the sandbox behind his house, to drawing fantastical worlds with paper and pencil, there has hardly been a time he hasn’t been off on some adventure in his mind, to the dismay of parents and teachers alike. Also, since the moment he could read, books have consumed vast swaths of his life. From The Mouse and the Motorcycle, to The Lord of the Rings, worlds just beyond reality have called to him like Homer’s Sirens. It’s not surprising then he chose to write stories of his own. Each filled with worlds just beyond reach, but close enough we can all catch a glimpse of ourselves in the characters he brings to life.

Stumbling into Phea’s garden, an eccentric woman skilled in the arts of gardening and imagination, Emily finds she is not alone in her troubles.

Happy Easter #timeforaholiday

It’s been a hectic term of work, writing and blogging. Which is mainly good. My brain is ready to switch off though. So I will be taking a break over Easter.
Easter 2014

That doesn’t mean no work though. I will be taking my editing with me. Got on a roll the other night and need to strike while the iron is hot. I have also been reading some great books that will appear on my Stitch Says blog very soon. Lots to come. I will wrap up the traditional v self publishing blogs when I get back. However until then have a great and safe Easter!

Obi waves goodbye, Little Man Stitch watching his big pal!

The Buzz

“Experience is the best teacher as Billy and his “purple shadow” learn a sweet lesson in Billy and the Monster Who Ate All the Easter Eggs. Beautifully illustrated, nicely formatted, this quick, easy story will be read over and over again.” ~ 5 Star Review, Julia B., Amazon

“My daughter has really been enjoying David Chuka’s Billy and Monster books. This is another fun addition to the “family.” As always, the story has a lovely moral (this time teaching the value of moderation – definitely the biggest word in the book)! It’s based on the very realistic theme of overindulging in chocolate/sweets, which virtually anyone can relate to and which kids find a lot of fun. And, awesome pictures as always. Definitely recommend it.” ~ 5 Star Review, Renee B., Amazon

“I really like the little monster in this book and how they get into trouble together. What child hasn’t snuck into the cache of candies that their parents have hidden? Cute story with a lesson for the little ones in your family!” ~ 5 Star Review, Patricia T., Amazon

“This is a cute story about a little boy Billy and his funny friend Monster. They love chocolate so much that they forget about obeying to older. At night, they sneaked to the chocolate egg pyramid, started eating the chocolate eggs and made a big mess. On the morning, they not only got in a big trouble, but they also got a bad stomach pain. They both had to learn a lessons about MODERATION. Nice illustrations, book well written.” ~ 5 Star Review, OPV, Amazon

“Billy and his monster friend enjoy lots of fun in this book, filled with great pictures and a cute story. It shares a lot about celebrating holidays, and intertwines humor and family love throughout the story. Hidden in the story is a nice message about eating in moderation, a well needed lesson in our culture of over-eating. Billy ends up being proud of himself and makes good decisions by the end of the book, while all the while sharing some adventures with his cute monster friend. Great read to share with your children or grandchildren year round, not just for the Easter holiday.” ~ 5 Star Review, Katie W., Amazon

Writer’s Reveal: Quirky Habits #amwritingIthink

This month’s writers reveal topic is actually my own:
‘Quirky Writer’s Habits: We’ve all got them so it’s time to share. There must be something you do that you know is strange or your friends think is strange? Let’s have a laugh and see where this takes us….’

writers-reveal-logo

Okay so I chose this because I laugh at myself as I get organised to write. I guess my quirkiest habit is actual one of procrastination. I know that defeats the purpose, but it’s true. I will surf the net for information and get sidetracked all the time. I will browse social media and tell everyone I am researching, really I’m wasting time. When I get on a roll with my writing I don’t even turn on social media. So it goes to show it really isn’t a requirement.

1016606_10152929411300207_1439812797_n

Yes I do research while I am getting ideas and of course during the editing phase I really don’t need to do it while I am actually writing.
Recently I have discovered another way to procrastinate that is turning into a habit. I have been building character profiles for all my new characters. Yeah it can be a research tool, is a great way to develop a character and when I update my website they will be a part of that. Still pretty sure it’s another habit that doesn’t always help. Especially because I have begun to illustrate them, which is an issue because I have had to teach myself to draw!
Editing habits… mmm not sure about this one, again mainly wasting time or putting it off. Although last year I began reading my manuscripts out loud as part of my editing, not so quirky I guess, just don’t ask the dogs. Yep Stitch and Chewie hear all my stories first. Once it passes their approval then I read it to my girls. Quirky… maybe!

10153083_10152745605884676_1829834316_n

I guess in terms of my friends the biggest and quirkiest habit I have is actually writing! They just don’t get it. Although so many people have told me they would love to write a book not too many of them have come close. I love hearing the excuses. To me it’s part of my makeup. I need to write and I love writing. The fact that I have now taken that further and had three books published (and a handful of stories) well I am proud to say that’s my quirkiest habit ever. Now back to the researching… ooops I mean editing! To check out more writer’s reveal blogs go to:
