I hate talking about money. Hate it, hate it, hate it. I firmly believe that if you see value in something (like stories), you should support them.
There are many ways to do this. One cheap and easy way is to talk about a writer’s work. If you like it tell people. Encourage them to sample that writer’s wares.
Another is to use the donate button whenever available and throw a buck or two in the pot. I have a couple stories out there right now that depend on this model. One is GalaxyBillies (found on podiobooks.com) and the other is Stolen Immortality found at Sorcerous Signals (http://www.sorceroussignals.com/StolenImmortality.html).
So what is my point?
Well, I suppose if I have a point it is, please support what I and many writers like me do (if you like our work, that is). I received my first royalty from podiobooks.com earlier this week and it felt great. It meant that someone enjoyed my story enough to put value on it. That alone was worth more than the amount.
I’ve got a couple books coming out in the next few months. I would love it if you spread the word. I would love it just as much if you purchased a copy (or five). Should you be interested in a signed copy, let me know in advance and I will ensure I have enough copies to fit the demand.
Don’t worry, I will be posting more information about the books as I get closer to the release dates.
In the meantime, have a look at what I already have available. GalaxyBillies is in desperate need of iTune and Podiobook reviews. If you are unable to do any more than provide that, you will have done me a great favor.
As you should know by now, asking for support isn’t something I (or many other writers) normally do. Still, I want you to know that your support (both financial and promotional) is very important to me. Please take a few moments and decide if my work is something you want to help out. If you do, thank you. If not, I can appreciate that too.
Thank you for listening.
