Once again Jael, my favorite indie reviewer, has taken a spin with Dane Curse through Gold Coast City, and much to my delight she’s given The Coconut Swindle a five star rating! “How can one man earn so many stars for his writing?” you might ask yourself. Begging. Also, the bribes* don’t hurt.
*(jk, Jael is crazy honest and super ethical, but those traits don’t garner laughs.)
The Coconut Swindle is ‘Done’ and I’m now in the promo mode. The launch day is a hard March 4th. An official, hard, no fucking around March 4th. I’ll have the cover reveal shortly, but to my diehard fans, all fifteen of you, the day is coming. And your patience will be rewarded. Not handsomely though. JK, I’m actually pretty proud of this one.
Ok, so The Coconut Swindle is still in the process of editing. Which should let everyone know two things:
- It’s going to be really good. Or just good. Whatever, it’s all subjective anyway, but the MRU’s are polished, the proactive/reactive scenes change, the goal/obstacles/stakes are clear, and the three acts are damn near perfect length.
- The second thing though is that the release day may be pushed back. Unfortunately for us indie authors the first month of promos and sales is vital to get attention, and while I can definitely get this out in January it may coincide with Valentine’s Day chaos, and I can’t fight that. I’m just one man!
Also, I just lost my cat Durden and that’s slowing me down a bit. I miss you tons little guy, 14 years seems like a long time, but somehow it wasn’t nearly enough.
So long pal, you were a terrible cat but an amazing friend, and you’re already missed.
