It’s very hard for writers to get themselves noticed in the current climate. The self-publishing bubble means that there are more books in the market place now than ever before, but who even has time to wade through all the shit to find the diamonds?
Writer’s are becoming increasingly more proactive and astute, as they are forced to come up with ever-more inventive ways to get their work in front of people. It’s not enough to write a book. That’s a great start, but if you don’t do the extracurricular stuff your book will sink like a stone and all your hard work will be for nothing. We don’t all do it to be rich and famous. Most of us realize the odds of that happening are pretty remote. But a little recognition for what we do is appreciated far more than the casual observer (or reader) can ever imagine.
The challenge lies in giving people the option to take an interest in our work. Because, why should they? We are all busy people, living our lives. I know from experience that something has to be pretty remarkable these days to hold anyone’s interest.
This is why we’ve done some of the work for you.
Introducing… DeadPixel Publications.
The brainchild of a very talented and successful US-based independent writer called Robert Brumm Jr, who I first met a few years ago when I reviewed his first book, Desolate, for Morpheus Tales magazine:
It was Robert’s idea to form a collective of like-minded individuals, who would cross-promote each other’s work under the umbrella name DeadPixel Publications. This, at least, would take some of the legwork out of finding great books. We’ve done that part for you. There’s a load of them in the same place. As well as some special offers, information about the writers and their work, tips and advice for other writers, and even some free stuff. No strings.
