Super awesome news, guys! My latest book, Aim is now in Eltham Bookstore! Pretty exciting!
Dad and I visited the other day to show the book to the manager, Meera, and she’s agreed to take some copies and see what happens with them. Since we haven’t published with a big brand (Penguin, Allen & Unwin, for example) nobody is really in the mood for stocking it in piles, but I didn’t expect that since it’s only my sixth book. Meera had some really excellent advice that for my next book I should go all the way – find a traditional publisher, try my hardest to polish it, and get the book distributed that way.
I’m willing to do this, of course, right after I get past this little writer’s block I’ve been dished out. I’m still writing, but the next book in the Aim series is already written up; it just needs to be rewritten, which is where I’m a bit blocked.
Being attached to it and enjoying some of the parts I’ve put into it, I am procrastinating and find it hard to start the book again (I’ve tried several times and all that’s come out is something thin and just terribly wrong).
In the meantime, I’ve started another book along with my other thirteen unfinished skits and have reached the threshold of 30,000 words – though this new idea is very long and detailed, and 30,000 words hasn’t even gotten the main characters to meet. So now, as I write this, even the ideas for that book seem to have stopped flowing. *sigh* I hate writer’s block. I still write, but it’s awful. ‘Nuff said.
So, here’s the link to Eltham Bookstore, because they’re awesome and you should check them out. Their bookstore has an awesomely wide range (including “The Fault in Our Stars”. Whoever stocks that book has to be amazing). Find them at https://www.facebook.com/elthambookshop
So, bye-di-bye. I think I’d better make another start on the sequel to Aim. *groans*
