A Process

Releasing my first self-published book is definitely a journey. Most times it’s a great experience, and then there’s the parts where I realize just how much I have to learn. There’s so much more to being an author than just writing. So far I’ve had to learn how to:

  • Design a book cover in Photoshop
  • Code HTML to fix a messed up e-pub
  • Promote my book, which involves a lot of social media activity
  • Etc.

In the end it will be worth it, and I’d be lying if I told you that I didn’t enjoy doing most of these things. I definitely have a masochistic streak.

Feel free to drop by on my social media pages and give them a like. Every little bit counts!

 

Social media

Just popping by to tell you that if you’re interested in more day to day updates, you’re welcome to follow me on Instagram and Facebook. There you’ll find a few photos as well as some excerpts from The Book of Songs.

If you have any questions about me or my books, feel free to ask them on Goodreads. That way I won’t have to answer the same questions a bunch of times.

I hope to see you around!

Party!

Today I’m going to have a Kickstarter party at Unga Magasinet (a meeting place for young people) in Sundsvall. I’m already pretty nervous, but I’m willing to suffer in order to make this Kickstarter project a success!

(It’s not really that bad)

The party will begin with me welcoming everyone and giving a small introductory speech. Then it will be time for people to mingle and look at some illustrations based on The Book of Songs. You can find all the images on our Facebook page, but its always more enjoyable to see things in real life.

I’ll also have a tablet with me so that those who want can make their pledges right away. People tend to forget about these things if they have to wait until they get home.

Now I’m going to keep preparing for the party. Wish me luck!

100 likes on Facebook 

As the title says, we’ve reached 100 likes on our Facebook page, which is great since we only launched it two weeks ago. I’m almost planning to celebrate it with cake, but I’m not sure if that’s an overreaction or not…

Please keep suggesting our page to your friends. The bigger audience we have, the greater the chance is that the English version of The Book of Songs and the rest of The Weaver Trilogy becomes a reality!
