Now, as we buckle down into the final stretch, I'm enjoying the partnership that's coming into play. Me - an experienced and savvy indie author with tips and tricks up my sleeve. Them - a bold young boutique press who knows what they want and who brings fresh energy into the planning. The preorder for Amazon will come later but Kobo gets an advance for a strategic reason (which is all 'blah blah' to the average reader.) Trust me when I say it's rather clever. I take my 'blah blah's very seriously.
On my end, I'm working out details for the book launch, which will involve a reading, music, apps and absinthe at a local steampunk gastropub. For Tyche, they're working on getting the books ready for the colossal Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo April 28 - May 1. Soon, this huge adventure novel will be where it belongs - on the bookshelves and in the hands of readers.
So, if you're a lucky Kobo user, here's your link to the front line - the preorder of COLD STONE & IVY! (Tea is grand, but a good port or scotch is the recommended 'spirit' for such bracing fare...)
