ideas take life in Words
A blog following the works (and shenanigans) of J.E. Klimov
Hi everyone. Some quick easy updates.
2. Need more reviews? I have opened up a page on my blog where you can submit your book for a review. This is not a "free copy for a review" thing. Check out the details.
3. As a member of the Just-Us-League, just a friendly reminder, yet another installment of fairy tale retellings is now available. This is the 5th JLA book, with a sixth one in the works.
As a friendly reminder, you can follow the Just-Us-League:
We're always interested in readers prior to each release. Contact me if interested.
4. Lastly, for your entertainment: I attended my first live event early May. Despite the rain, it was a lovely turnout. Although most people were looking for free SWAG, I met a handful of WONDERFUL people. Some writers, some editors, some who just like to read. In the last hour, I hear shouting. I turn my head, and a car is rolling down the hill, of which, my tent was situated at the bottom.
There's an EAR PIERCING SCREECH as the the first tent gets mowed over. I'm next. I stare at my table; my precious books are about to be destroyed ...OR I could get injured protecting it. Yes, that thought crossed my mind Thankfully, a half dozen people rush to hold the car off. I, too, dive in. More screeching. In the corner of my eye, I see my tent shudder backward, and the table presses against me.
The owner of the car rushes by in a panic... Looks like he forgot to put his car in park. At the top of a hill. Thankfully, no one was hurt.
I asses the damage: my tent has been completely "relocated" and my table twisted 180 degrees. Luckily, the worst was that some books were wet from rain. I take it as a sign to pack up.
As I do so, a woman walks up to my table. She grabs my generic pen (my ONLY pen) and pockets it. I'm blatantly staring at her, mouth agape, but she seems indifferent. She inspects my HALF USED hand sanitizer and asks...
"You giving this away?"
The joy of selling books.
And that, my friends, can make for a good story in itself. If you haven't attended OR participated in any festivals (particularly craft or author events), you should! Just... don't stand at the bottom of any incline for an extended period of time.
