I’ve spent the early part of my 2018 in a conference call with Austin Graves, and we both agreed that we have slacked too long. It’s been a year and a half since I released my last book and I’m looking forward to releasing under the Wicked Good Time Publishing label with my next book. Austin was beyond disappointed in the lack of sales with his book as well. But we’re going to focus harder to make sure our next books are successes! So buckle up.
I hope everyone had a great New Year’s eve last night. The best is yet to come!
Today marks an important day in the history of me as an author. A little company called Two Dudes, Brews & Books was founded. And even though both of the Two Dudes have moved onto other companies, I thought it was important to at least remember the occasion anyway.
And speaking of Two Dudes, the new paperback covers for Paranormal Contact Volumes 1, 2 and 3 will be available sometime in the next 24 hours. I thought about changing them over to reflect my new company, but the series was printed under the Two Dudes company, and that’s where they should stay.
I am considering releasing the entire Paranormal Contact series in one book. Is that something people would be interested in? I would throw in a new short story in there as well. Let me know!
And there will be some serious writing done a little later today for the first book of mine that will be released under Wicked Good Time Publishing. I’m trying to convince Austin that he should release The Heart Wants What The Heart Wants in paperback as well. He’s wavering, I think!
Have a good Sunday everybody!
There was a part of me that was going to break from my normal blog posts. I almost wrote a Hot Button Topic Blog similar to what would have been said on that old podcast I used to do to describe how I feel about America these days. But I won’t go into that. There’s a time and a place for it, and I don’t think my blog mostly about books is the place for it. But make no mistake about it, it is the time to discuss things. You want to know how I feel? Hit me up. I’ll tell you exactly how I feel.
What I will say is this…. Last year I started writing a book that was going to be ultra violent. It would have been unlike any of my other books previous. But I stopped and looked at the world as it was. You don’t need to read a book about violence. Because all you have to do is turn on the news. I refused to contribute to it. Maybe there will be a time that I will revisit that book, because I was enjoying it. But I am glad that I stopped it when I did.
Today would have been the day that I would have released the new covers for the paperback books for Paranormal Contact, but I’m having a hard time connecting to the website that would have released them. So it looks like that venture is on hold for a little bit. I will let you know when the new covers will be available when I know.
I’m at a loss for words about the death of Tom Petty last week. I’ve always been a fan of him. I had just gotten off of work on Monday and I wanted to see what was happening in the world. So I logged onto social media. One of the first posts I saw made my jaw drop. “Oh no. Not Tom Petty.”
So later today or tomorrow I will be doing a special top 5 of best Tom Petty songs.
Happy Friday everyone. Hope you have plans to have a Wicked Good Time this weekend. Just wanted to stop by and give you a little bit of an update. If you were looking to get the Paranormal Contact series on Kindle today, I’m sorry to tell you that you can’t. The Paranormal Contact Series is being withheld for a few days while the Kindle versions update to the brand new and bad ass covers that were designed by Wicked Good Time Publishing. I will certainly let you know when all three are available.
You want to see one of the new covers? Here you go!
It is very similar to the original cover as far as the design goes, but I think it adds a little bit more to the spooky nature of it.
Speaking of Wicked Good Time Publishing, we are in talks to bring on a few new authors to publish with us. We are very excited about this. The more people we have, the more people will be talking about us. So that’s always a good thing.
We are back in the Club Kayfabe Creative Community (CKCC) Spotlight. We recently talked about a wrestling podcast in the group, but now we are talking about another. Take a listen to Wrestling With Fanboy Mark Jabroni’s Ring Rust. Mark has been a lifelong fan and is very knowledgeable. Check him out!
Happy Monday morning everybody. Yeah I know. I feel the same way.
I just wanted to give you a quick update. All three of the Paranormal Contact covers will be changing next week. I got together with the team at Wicked Good Time Publishing and came up with three new covers. So I think it will be easier to change the Kindle version first, so expect that this weekend. And then I will roll out the paperback covers after that.
I’m very happy with the new covers. It adds a little bit more of my personality in the covers, I think. I’m also looking to possibly update the Everything Comes Full Circle cover as well. I will keep you posted on that as well.
Have a good work week everybody! Hang in there!
So as many of you know my book Paranormal Contact Vol. 3 was up for the best Paranormal Book in the Summer Indie Book Awards from Metamorph Publishing. Well, the winners were announced this week!
I didn’t win. That’s okay. As the old saying goes it’ was just an honor to be nominated, and it was. Would I like to have won? Of course I would have. It wasn’t written in the stars for me to win though.
I’d like to congratulate Nicky Charles for the book “Deceit Can Be Deadly” which won in my category. I might have to go check out the book!
There will be an update later in next week about the progress of my next book. In the mean time have a good one everybody!
Happy Labor Day everyone. If you were one of the lucky people to get a three day weekend I hope you are able to enjoy it. I know I am!
It’s been almost a year since my last book release. I’m not proud of it. But I have no one to blame but myself. But I’m hard at work with my next book. I’m hoping that I can have it released by the end of the year. If it’s not released in December, then it will be an early 2018 release. This book will not be in the paranormal realm at it. It’s more Everything Comes Full Circle, then anything else. A bit comedy, a bit drama and all about relationships. It also does focus on a reunion. I seem to have a soft spots for those. But this is quite different though.
This will be my first release under a new book label. It will be released under Wicked Good Time Publishing.
While I’m temporarily stepping away from the world of the paranormal, it’s just that. Temporarily. I’m kicking around some ideas for future releases that take me back into either The Time Traveler’s World or back to Paranormal Contact. I haven’t yet decided what will be my follow up to this right now. But you know I will let you know as well.
If you haven’t had a chance to vote yet for Paranormal Contact Vol. 3, please do me a favor and vote. You can vote for the next week every single day! Sure they spelled my name wrong. With a name like Trelewicz, are we really surprised? Maybe the next book should be under Treleqicz as an inside joke?
If there are any authors who need a little free publicity, feel free to message me. I’m looking to do some more Authors Helping Authors. Whatever I can do to help other Independent Authors, I’m glad to do. Let me know if I can help you!
In the mean time, have a good one everybody!
