The Good and The Bad

Today I received a call from one of the organizers for "Word On The Street" here in Toronto. I was so thrilled! I was told in February that the list for the Authors in the Writers Block was full up so I didn't plan on going. But today I got the call that someone canceled and the organizers still had my name on the list. Of course i jumped at the chance. Who wouldn't. Word On The Street - Toronto has about 600,000 people coming to it.

My Marketing Goddess is also arranging a 'Picnic in the Park' for me to have a picnic lunch with my fans at Word On The Street, where I'll do some readings from my book 'Angel of Death: Book One of the Chosen'. More info will be forthcoming.

I'm also getting more and more excited about my Book Launch Party on July 5th. I'm a week and a half away and there is so much to do! It's so exciting!

Book sales are going well and more local independent booksellers are taking my book. This is just great.

Also online sales are going well and the signed numbered copies are going fast. If you want one best to order it soon because they will be gone after the Book Launch. To order.

My publisher has done some great things for me, least of all is getting my book up and running on Createspace so folks can purchase the book in USD through them as well and they will be getting Amazon to sell it too in the next couple of weeks. I'll make sure the post goes up about that when it happens. The only thing is that they aren't signed.

On to the topic of internet sales of my book -

Do NOT purchase my book through Amazon (.com/.ca/.uk/etc) or Barnes and Noble if it says that the publisher is iUniverse. Do NOT purchase the book through iUniverse either. The quality of the book is absolutely HORRIBLE, ILLEGIBLE and is not worth the paper it is printed on. The ISBNs for the iUniverse fiascos are under the ISBNs 978-144-013-5521 (6x9 trade paperback) and 978-144-013-4454 (hard cover). Amazon is in the process of taking it down by my request and Barnes and Noble have been notified to take it down too.

ONLY books with the following ISBN 9780981196503 by Dark Dragon Publications on either Amazon or Createspace should be purchased or purchasing it through the publisher at will ensure that you have a legitimate copy.

If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to respond to this.
