Just a little bit famous :D

I’m kidding. I’m still not famous, dammit, but it was rather nice to have my books feature on the DVLC Facebook page. [DVLC is a community house/learning centre where I’ve volunteered for close to four years].

This is a screenshot of the Facebook article:

The lovely people from the Writers Workshop allowed me to come over and give a talk about publishing today. I was hoping to debunk some of the myths surrounding publishing – both traditional and Indie – but as it turned out, the discussion ranged much further than I expected and the time just flew.

To say I had fun would be an understatement. I’m used to chatting with all of you about writing related issues, but it feels so much more immediate when you can see your audience smiling back at you. Being able to hand my books around for the first time was also an amazing experience. I’m still on a high.

Have a great weekend 🙂

The Innerscape Post Mortem

Apologies for the misleading title –  I haven’t killed off Innerscape. The post mortem is actually about the lessons I learned while publishing Innerscape last year. You thought it all went smoothly, didn’t you? -sound of maniacal laughter-

The Truth about publishing before Christmas – Guest Post by A.C. Flory


Open #submissions to Gollanz, January 2016

My thanks to the Offspring for alerting me to this, otherwise I would not have known that Gollanz is holding open submissions. -waves to the Offspring-

If you write sci-fi, fantasy or horror [I think] then you might consider sending your MS off. You can find the full details here:

As I don’t have a print version of Vokhtah, and don’t fancy paying the postage on an A4 printout to the UK, I won’t be applying. That said, I hope my all my sci-fi writing friends take advantage of this opportunity. Win or lose, it’s an important experience and I wish all of you the best of luck!

cheers

Publishing – is the Big Five cabal really so…inept?

My most recent article on the writing game just went up on Indies Unlimited:

I intended it to spark a discussion, and its happening. Come join the fun. 🙂

cheers

p.s. sorry for the flurry of posts. I’ve had a bit of a rest and my brain has woken up again. 😀
