When I’m not pointing and laughing at pretend ghosts or sideeyeing haunted houses, I like to write books. You might have noticed me doing that from time to time. I am expecting another one in about April – I say about April because you never know how long you’re going to need to get over a first draft. I’m told they’re a lot like episiotomies in that respect.
It turns out – shocker, I know – that everyone on the internet is a writer these days. (I was stunned. Really.) Loads of people are doing this book-writing thing, many of them featured at Goonreads. And no, that’s not a typo.
Goonreads is the brain baby of Something Awful and yet somehow still manages to be less awful than Goodreads. Less frantic animated gifs and less people thinking SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEE is a word and is somehow appropriate to be used in a book review. (Yes I am old and no I do not give a fuck.) So go there and look at the books. Some of them are very good. Some of them are simply dreadful, like that My Little Pony parody of Fifty Shades of Grey. Did you ever see such a thing? What kind of sick mind would come up with a thing like that?
You should also follow the shiny new Twitter feed, for promotions, author blogs, writing advice and also because the admin is currently scratching herself and not doing much at all. Such laziness. You can’t get the staff, you know.
Oh, and one more thing – I’m giving away free Kindle books. Totally free. Shiny free copies of Summerland. The only thing I ask in return is a review – on Amazon, on your blog, on Goodreads (if you really must). You get a free book and I get an honest review. Don’t hold back. If you thought it was a reprehensible puddle of filth and the author ought to be locked up on bread and water with nothing but her diseased mind for company then you are perfectly within your rights to say so. That’s the price of putting your shit in the public domain. So go wild. Comment here and I’ll hook you up with a chunk of reading matter.
