Take My Hand and Run Fast

Some of you may know there have been some media developments in my life.  I've had this blog for several years now and it's been a great way to share what I have been working on and spill my thoughts and generally interact with other writers around the globe.  It's perfect for someone with long-winded thoughts like myself.  But recently I realized that I need a media that caters to the staccato-beat, so, with significant trepidation, I got a Facebook account and a Twitter account.  If you happen to be on either of those, you will now be privy to all the little, significant things that happen in my life -

Like the fact that The Shadow Things and The Soldier's Cross Kindle editions are on a June-long sale on Amazon for $0.99!

And that Apple has a free Kindle app for your iPad so, if you don't have an actual Kindle, you can still download ebooks.  (You're welcome, Apple.)

Book Signing!

This news is a bit bigger.  Our publisher, Ambassador-Emerald Intl., is hosting an on-site book-signing and we would love to see you there!  If any of you regulars can make it that would be fantastic: it would be great to meet you in person and chat about books.  And even if you can't, it would be great if you could spread the word.

What:  Book signing for The Soldier's Cross and The Shadow Things
Where: Ambassador-Emerald Intl.
427 Wade Hampton Blvd.
Greenville, SC 29609
When: June 15, 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm / June 16, 10:00 am to noon

(Not to put them on the spot, but Ambassador-Emerald is a branch-out from the original house in Belfast, Northern Ireland.  And the proprietors are Irish.  Which is pretty cool.  Come and see!) 

7 ripostes:

  2. Oh, I wish I could come to the book-signing and see you and Abigail! However, I will be out of town both days, which is kind of disappointing. :/

    Oops, don't believe I have introduced myself yet. I'm Emily over at A Thousand Words. I've met Abigail and chatted with her before (at the Resource Center to be exact), and I've been following both of your blogs for a few months now. You both are splendid authors! :)

  3. Hallo, Emily! I am acquainted with you as a name and individual, though we haven't properly met. It is too bad that you will be out of town, but I hope you enjoy yourself all the same. Thanks for following The Penslayer!

  4. Sounds like great fun...too bad I don't live in SC. And how neat to be working with an Irish publisher. :)

  5. Is it possible to submit a story manuscript to Ambassador International Publishers (and potentially get published) if you live oversees like in Australia?

    congrats on joining fb! I've been enjoying the little posts you've put up and the photos too :).

  6. I would not swear either way on that point, Joy. Unfortunately the Ambassador-Emerald website appears to be offline to be redone so I don't know if you could obtain that information at this juncture; however, they still have their email address up for manuscript submissions. Whether or not they take submissions from far-flung members of the Commonwealth I don't know. I would think so, but I honestly don't know. If it is urgent, you might try dropping them a line via email and asking.

    I'm glad you've enjoyed my primaeval sojourns into Facebook. I feel not unlike a creature from another planet stepping onto another planet, bizarre and uncertain and feeling that the two of us (Facebook and myself) do not quite see eye to eye and do not quite speak the same tongue. We may not see eye to eye because I am so short; as for one's mother tongue, I just don't feel Facebook is really in the habit of saying "Of your courtesy." That vastly colours my opinion of a fellow.

  7. Thanks, Jenny. It isn't urgent by any means... I mean I have at least one whole year before actually seriously trying to submit a manuscript to any publishers. I was just curious about it for the future; the House sounding like one I'd like to try out one day (being Christian and concentrating on historical fiction) for The Crown of Life, my Ancient Roman Christian/historical novel.

    Far-flung members of the Commonwealth indeed! I suppose we are :). The "Commonwealth" seems to be a frequently used word lately thanks to the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. Have you watched the celebrations?

    Facebook takes a bit of time getting used to. It definitely is not like blogging, where the writer's pen can be released with relish or use elephantine words of wisdom, but it helps friends keep in contact and any followers updated on any important (short) news, pictures and articles. But you've done well!

    God bless.
