First off, I did the podcast interview with Matt James of Conundrum Publishing and Real-Life Fiction.
(The above photo was me testing out a web cam that I’d purchased for the interview. The picture was much better than my laptop would have given, and as an added bonus, it had a light and a mic on it to keep me loud and bright instead of sitting in dark shadows with sinister whispering.)
The interview lasted about an hour and was a lot of fun, at least 25% of the podcast was just us laughing. Part of that is because I write well but talk like an idiot…
Tentatively… it will be out at the end of September on both YouTube and Podcasty-type places.
Please watch it, and if it racks up enough views or ‘listens’ maybe they’ll let me come back for a follow up since this one was so fun.
Second off, I did the interview on Wednesday. It’s Sat night and I’m just now sitting down to work on Book IV. That’s because every day this week after work involved me sweating mightily while struggling to put together a swing set for the kids. Ugh. So much sweating and frustration. Especially when the very first piece you bolt in, you put in upside down.
Third off, Book IV story line is getting good. If anyone paid really, really close attention to the first book there was mention of a sister that was never mentioned again throughout the other books. That was for a good reason. And that’s all the hint you get.
Fourth, my goodness folks. The Reviews.
I wish I could snag an Amazon screenshot showing all three books. But essentially:
West of Prehistoric: 222 Reviews. 4.6/5 stars.
Enter Prehistoric: 162 Reviews. 4.6/5 stars.
Taming Prehistoric: 75 Reviews. 4.6/5 Stars.
It took WoP 1 year and 1 day to hit 100 reviews. EP it took (I think) 10 months. TP is at 75 and it hasn’t been out 6 months yet. And they all have the same rating, that’s pretty sweet!
I’m not sure how I’m doing over on Goodreads. I don’t bother looking anymore as it’s considered a leper by most established authors. Because if the writer has any notorious views, as in the same mainstream views of 20 years ago, then readers will bombard their books with 1 or 2 star reviews before the book is even released. That place is trash. Don’t go there. Let that Amazon branch wither and die.
Have a wonderful weekend folks.
