Hey everybody. Summer's racing away and I wanted to give a quick update on some of the exciting news about ANOM: Awakening and my writing career in general.
ANOM: Awakening Continues to Perform: For the last couple of weeks ANOM: Awakening has been entrenched as a Top Ten Book on Amazon's Books > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Fantasy > Superhero list. We are typically hovering between numbers 5 and 7 in the rankings. On the one hand, you could argue that my category is a fairly narrow niche. At the same time, not that long ago, I was thrilled just to crack the top 100.
Listen to ANOM in Your Car: ANOM: Awakening is currently in the process of being adapted as an audio book that will soon be available through Audible. We've partnered with the very talented Owen McCuen to do the voice recording for the novel, and I can't wait for you all to hear it. We first met Mr. Owen through the Little Gym of Washington Township. He sent in a brief sample of Jeremy talking as his audition - and maybe it's because he's a local guy so he knows that Philly/ South Jersey dialect - but he nailed it! Very exciting!!!
Questions and Answers: Next week I'm going to devote my blog post to answering any of your questions about ANOM: Awakening and my writing in general. If you have questions, please submit them through my contact page on my website. I've done a couple of these before the launch of the book, and I'm excited to see what questions people have now that they've actually read the story. One word of warning - this will probably be the last Q&A for ANOM: Awakening for a while!
A Change of Focus: While ANOM: Awakening is undoubtedly a major personal accomplishment, the focus of my webpage will be slowly shifting over the coming months. I have a brand new middle-grade novel that is nearing completion. If everything goes according to plan, it will be available through Amazon in late fall/early winter. So, starting in September, I'm going to begin focusing on the promotion of this new project. I can't wait to tell you about these new characters and the inspiration for this newest story.
BONUS: The sequel to ANOM: Awakening is well underway. I've written the first 9 chapters of ANOM: Legacy, and as soon as this gets posted, I'm diving back in to Chapter 10! There are new characters, familiar faces, drama, intrigue, and action... lots and lots of action.
