Well, that took a long time.
I don’t remember where, but I heard a while ago that ‘no one wants to hear what you’re going to do.’ That struck a chord with me, or rang a bell, or something. I remember it was a cliche, anyway. At any rate, I agreed with the point: Don’t post about things you intend to do, no matter how sincere your intentions. Do something interesting, and then post about it. That makes good sense to me.
I used to do that a lot. I haven’t now in a long time.
But, here I am tonight, so something is afoot, right?
Right. In fact, many things are afoot. Like it says on the tin: It’s all happening.
All what? You might ask. That is a good question.
As you may recall, the Great Silence started when I decided to reassess the operation of my writing business. I was going to change my marketing approach, my cover strategy, my print edition plans, and so on. Ultimately, doing that analysis and making those decisions took a lot longer than I expected, and frankly, I wonder if I might have been better off not doing it at all.
I don’t have that option now, though. All I can do is go with what I’ve got. What that means, simply, is that everything is changing. Some things are changing a little, others are changing a lot. But in total, it’s everything.
And it starts now.
Well, not right now. The changes will go book by book, and it will take a little while to roll out everything. Not terribly long, though. A week or so.
But wait, you might say, aren’t I just posting now about what I’m going to do?
The changes are kicking off with a new book: Vampires Versus Comicon: A Comicon Novel. My opinion is surely more than a little biased, but I think it’s a great book. When I can’t get through a proofreading session without laughing myself to tears, I feel like I’m on to something. I hope so (though it’s probably not good for the proofreading), but at any rate, I’m mostly just thrilled that it’s finally done. And just in time for Comicon.
Unfortunately, you can’t click through and get it right now. It will be sent to production within a few hours, however, together with the new edition of Zombies Versus Comicon, and they will both be available a few hours after that. And Zombies will be available for free for a while, and there will be a big advertising push, and so on.
So anyway, things are about to take off, and hopefully catch fire. We’ll know soon.
The next thing I post will be the announcement that Vampires Versus Comicon is finally available.
Better wear something that covers your neck.
Man, it’s good to be back.
