Hi guys. So a few months back I placed fourth in the second annual sci-fi contest on this website, and using that bit of positive encouragement to channel a short story into a full novel, I just published my debut. If you're a fan of sci-fi I would recommend that you give it a read, especially if you're an Unlimited subscriber. I take sci-fi's traditional tropes and both use them and turn them on their heads, leading to something that I hope is ultimately pretty unique. As everyone here is no doubt aware, self-promotion is arguably even harder than the writing process itself, as it stands I'm just trying to see the forest for the trees. Social media feels more of an obligation than a fun venture at this point, but at the same time I've made a few sales already and the feeling from that is as exhilarating as it is frightening. There's also a kindle version of the novel available, but somehow the paperback and kindle version's aren't being shown on the same page even when they should. The kindle link is here: If anyone has any general tips and advice for me, I would be more than happy to hear it. So far I'm sending out copies to book review blogs, I'm slowly but surely exploring promotion via social media (reddit, tumblr, imgur, the like), and have been posting about my publication on several forums. Is there anyone here who achieved considerable success in the matter? Cheers.
