I was contacted by the ever lovely and talented Author Melissa Smith (and owner of Hypno Cat) to join her Next Big Thing Blog Tour, and without thinking I said yes. The Next Big Thing Blog Tour is an event that highlights some of the best Indie Authors you may not be reading, and Melissa’s works are very good indeed, check out the interview after the jump.

This weekend I was at the Baltimore Book Festival, a special event for all things wordy and it nice to see a festival dedicated to the written word. I had a table in the Authors Tent and for my entire assigned day I sadly struck out, I guess the mojo just wasn’t with me and the Teddy Bear Tales, Wonder Tales and Exposition all batted below average – we got totally destroyed by a series of Pop-up books. You can’t always have a successful show… Anyhow, enjoy the pictures and thank you to my wife Jean, and my girl Chris for coming along and keeping me company… On to the next show![nggallery id=4]
This feels good to see, it all started on Sunday with me finally deciding to work on my Goodreads profile, then I discovered I had an Author page. Very basic page, but it was there with The Tether books listed. I made a request for Author status and finally was able to fill in the blanks, which really was just my bio and link back here. Very good to see and I did a happy dance today. Check out my Goodreads.com profile here – http://www.goodreads.com/alt-world
Indie Authors like myself grab any chance they can to get the word out about there work. In the early hours this morning I discovered Facebook Pages, a function where you can make a page about any subject and get the users of Facebook to vote it up with the Like function.
Today I created two pages, the first for The Tether my dark urban paranormal adventure novel and the second an Author page. You can check them out at the links below, and if you are a member of Facebook I hope you hit the Like button and help an indie Author out.
