Hello World! I’m back.
I know it’s been a while since you’ve heard from me but I’ve been very busy. I broke my neck two years ago and you’d be surprised how long it takes for a neck to heal. The thumb, pointer and middle finger on my left hand were affected by my spinal cord being pinched by two of the disc in my neck. This slowed down my typing skills and it still does. For the first year of my injury I was too depressed to sit down anything other than an email or Facebook status update.
I got a kick in the butt from a fellow writer friend who sat down with me and said, “You need to self publish.” I can honestly say I never thought about self publishing before because I was guessing it was going to be expensive. So much so, I didn’t even research or ask anyone about doing it. Come to find out, you can do it for under $1000 if you want. That’s still a lot of money but if you really believe in your product, why not invest in it. So I dusted myself off and got back to finishing my book. I did one more major rewrite, which took around 6 months to do, and then I got started on the cover. I changed the original cartoon cover with a more realistic one. Going out and taking the photo graphs myself I got the help of one of my cousins daughters, who’s in college for graphic designs, to put it all together. Months of going back and forth we finally got a covered we both liked. Because of legal reasons, I had to ditch that cover and come up with a new one. Back out to the street I went with my camera to start over. It was finally finished.
Here we are, nine and a half years later after I first sat down and started to write, “Hollywood Clown”, and it comes out on October 1st 2013. You can get it at Amazon, Amazon Kindle, Barnes and Nobel and Kobo Books. You can also go to this websites home page, click on the photo of the book cover and it’ll take you to my book on Amazon.
I have a lot more to say on many things so I’ll be back.
In the meantime, check out some of the book teasers I put up on YouTube – http://www.youtube.com/user/TheHollywoodClown?feature=watch
