Pagan Fiction Authors Coming Together!

showdownfbevent

Did you know that many of your favourite Pagan authors write fiction too? And did you know that there’s a lot of great fiction out there written by Pagan authors? Pagans have unique perspectives to offer to the world of fiction, from a deep understanding of ancient mythologies to unique character relationships that break the standard mould.

I’m pleased to announce that on Sunday, March 12, I’m hosting a Facebook event to bring Pagan fiction writers and readers together.

By Any Means Necessary: An Indie Authors’ Event!

With the upcoming release of my Wyrd West Chronicles, I’ll be participating in an indie fiction authors’ event to share our work and promote community-building!  By Any Means Necessary is a Facebook takeover event where writers post about their work and what drives them to write for a scheduled period of time.  I’m scheduled for 11:30 pm this coming Monday night (Feb. 13) to 12:30 am Tuesday morning (Valentine’s Day: share the love!) PST but I encourage you to tune in any time over the three days to meet and greet a variety of independent authors!

Join us for three days in celebrating what community truly means. A place where we share ideas, laugh with each other and strive to bring joy to our lives by any means necessary. No matter anyone’s marketing style or connection to others, we want to remind everyone why we coexist in the indie world together.

Yes, there are grueling days where sometimes we lose sight of what being an indie truly means. Sometimes we have to take giant leaps to discover what it is that makes our fan base tick. There are some days where maybe we need the extra income just to get by. For the next three days, we want to remind everyone the joy this community brings.

This event is open to anyone who wants to share their work by either giveaways or simply posting teasers. Either way, we all must remember to love the art of writing and remain humble to the ones who give us the time out of their busy days to enjoy our work.

Do Writers Write What Readers Want to Read?

Have you ever wondered if the genres authors most enjoy writing in, match the genres readers most enjoy reading? Before self-publishing, all new books for sale were filtered by agents and publishers, who acquired and worked on books they thought would sell well. If there was an oversupply of manuscripts by authors in a particular genre, the competition to be chosen and published within the genre, would be higher too. Enter self-publishing: now any writer can publish, without filter, into any genre they desire. Given the influx of new books across genres, does the proportion of books in each genre meet with readers’ demand?

The Weird West

I didn’t realize when I started writing my Wyrd West Chronicles that there was actually a genre for this!  No new ideas under the sun, I guess; but then again, it seems that my take is just a little bit unique.  Less dark overall than the usual depiction; more high fantasy.

Speaking of which, I’ll be releasing the first story, “Showdown,” on the Spring Equinox!  That’s March 20 this year.  It’s in the final editing stages and I’m just waiting for the cover image.  When I have all that, you’ll be able to get it by pre-order.

There’s Space Western for The West In Space!, and there’s Cattle Punk for The West meets Steam Punk. The Weird West is for when The West meets the supernatural.

A Note on Upcoming Projects!

So I figured it was time I talked a bit about my own writing, because I’m excited about it and I want other people to get excited about it!  I’ve got a few irons in the fire right now: I’m working on two novels at the moment.  The one I’m giving my most immediate attention […]
