Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like
Guess what showed up in the afternoon post yesterday. Books, babies! A lovely stack of books!
This is my first batch of author copies of Occasional Soulmates, which I’m planning to use as huge business cards. Well, the truth is I’m giving some of them to friends and family — Mom’s birthday is coming up — and I might try to peddle a handful at the local bookstore. I might even come up with a contest here at What The Hell. Better stay tuned!
The really interesting thing about the arrival of these copies is that, believe it or not, it felt the same as when I got my first copies of Parts Unknown, which was published traditionally. Getting a box of your own books in the mail is a blast, whether you’ve been lucky enough to snag a contract with a big publisher or have made the magic all on your own. There’s just something about seeing the thing you created out of thin air fully realized.
Now I just have to figure out a way to sell the son of a gun!
