I've written a book that takes place in the world of Sindome. I finished it in 2010, and have been editing it, sending query letters out, doing more editing, rewriting major parts based on feedback (from some of you! thanks everyone!) and sending out more query letters to agents. As a first time author it's not the easiest thing to get the attention of a literary agent and even harder to get published. When you do, it's up to the author to do their own marketing. It's not until you become a well known author (or catch a break) that a publishing house is going to offer much in the way of marketing.
So, after spending time trying to find an Agent and finding the process both time consuming and disheartening, I have taken matters into my own hands. I'm self publishing my book on Amazon. I will do my own marketing (I run a web design and marketing company anyway, so this isn't a huge stretch for me). That marketing starts here, with my dear fellow players.
I've always had plans for a long term marketing strategy for Sindome, and those plans always involved bringing more attention to our community in various ways. This is one of them.
The book is called Recombination, it is 29 chapters, roughly 90,000 words and is on sale for $4.99 on Amazon. It chronicles the early life of Seven Ecks, his first encounter with the Snakes, and the things that made him who he was when he arrived in Withmore. I would truly appreciate your support, both in buying the book and giving it a good rating (if you think it deserves it) and spreading the word (if you like the book). I will be donating a portion of the proceeds of each book sold, to The Sindome Group and for every non-Sindomer that buys and reads my book we get a chance to introduce someone new to our genre and to our city. Writing Recombination was a labor of love, the outpouring of support I've had over the years has been overwhelming at times. The book is dedicated to each and every one of you. Thank you for all the support.
