My Book Escape (an update)


#1

So, yesterday I received the first printed copy of my book as a proof subject to my approval. I have had it read and have read through it myself. I am very impressed with the work my publisher has done. The book meets and exceeds my expectations and I have sent the publisher an email explaining that.

The publisher gave me a 20 day deadline to review the book and I have sent them email today saying it is ready for the next step. I expect to hear from them explaining the marketing plans and release date. I hope to be able to update everyone with a link to the book for those of you that wish to see it.

I will have to say now though, I have a book that is registered and has an isdn number on it. It has a price of $18.99 on the cover and even my picture. So I guess it is official: I am now a Sci-Fy Author with my first book that will be released soon.

I’ll be sure to read it, just don’t go off and start your own religion now.


#3

cool stuff!


#4

Looking forward to reading it.


#5

This is amazing. Will it be available on Amazon? You know we’ve got you as far as Amazon reviews go!


#6

If Amazon does offer it, I guess we could all order a copy thru the site link and support Strats. Everyone wins!


#7

Absolutely! Support everyone at once. I also hear that if you have a vehicle to push Amazon reviews, it helps tremendously with sales because it pushes the book in front of more people’s Amazon homepage feeds.


#8

Yes, Amazon is one of the sources it will be available on first. They are supposed to have it on e-readers too.


#9

I prefer hard copies. I like being able to look at all my books.

You sound like my father in law when I tried to get him a Kindle.

Books are great but when you’re at a checkpoint in the middle of the desert not carrying all those books is even better.


#12

Yeah ebooks are handy and have their places.


#13

For me though it has to be a Kindle cause it looks like actual ink on paper. I can’t read books on my phone or tablet.


#14

I want the audiobook narrated by @JRWarlord.


#15

I just want a cool name like JR Warlord.

I will name myself Johnny Stuckenschneider.

Lately I have been naming my PvP characters Johnny Carebear.


#16

Now that I think about it “J. R. Warlord” does sound like an epic sci-if novelist’s pen name.


#17

Like L. Ron Hubbard?


#18

Yeah but with even more secret organizations.


#19

Thank You, the Name J.R. Warlord has been my non-deploom for all my creative pursuits since high school. My classmates gave me the title of warlord as a nickname and I have used it as my signature on everything I do with a creative aspect. I have artwork, wind chimes, tattoo art, mods I have done, and now a Sci-Fy book with it monogramed across the bottom.
