Greetings Newbies! You picked a great day to join.

Some things are simply unrelated. For example, I use Mailchimp to get you your weekly dose of coolness and Shirley Manson promotes Mailchimp. That does not mean Shirley Manson promotes me. She should, but she doesn’t.

Other things are related. 

Yesterday, Azoth Khem and Watchdog Entertainment signed an agreement with Alicia Freeman Publicity to handle the promotion of SPLICE: HIT BIT TECHNOLOGY. Alicia comes with a stellar reputation as a true professional who increases her clients’ status in the public eye while boosting their bottom line. She’s also responsible for creating nude cults of rabid, vodka loving, pansexuals for them. That last part may just have been my fever dream. We’ll find out as time goes on.

Anyway, also yesterday, SPLICE: HIT BIT TECHNOLOGY was picked up by Barnes and Noble. This means you can, finally, get your sweaty hands on a hard copy of the book. Also, it means better royalties for us, at no additional cost to you, if you buy from B&N.

Right now, thanks to COVID-19, you can only order it for delivery or arrange pick up at your nearest location; they’re not stocking new titles just yet. Which is fine. We’re in their catalog and being added to more as I type. That’s the important part. 

Today Barnes and Noble, tomorrow the world!


Okay, sorry, I’m calm now.

For the next slab of greatness, I turn my email blast over to the indefatigable Meredith Loughran.

Hello comic book fans and creators! 

iNDEEvent launches once again this weekend August 29-30th with our End of Summer Back & Back to School Book Sale.

We’ve got indie creators who are bringing their shows to the Saturday playlist and everyone is encouraged to tune in and interact. Sunday continues the fun with a new idea; a real selling component where we’ll have creators sitting with us during our “SELL BLOCKS”.

People will have an opportunity to hear pitches and support ongoing Kickstarters, IndieGoGo or other crowdfunding campaigns, or direct selling to customers and friends across multiple networks which include Geek Insider, Indie Volt, and the Comic Book Advocates Network. So mark your calendar for this coming weekend. And if you can’t make it to the live shows, no worries! They will be available for replay and our participants will be listed on our website. 

Bookmark for details and the schedule of events or check out #iNDEEvent on social media. See you there.

Since I have a dining room full of comics, and like selling them, I’m excited to be a part of this event. I will be hanging around all weekend, so feel free to drop by, say hi, and make someone buy you a copy of one of my comics. In fact, make them buy you two. You’re worth it.

Still more below. I’ve been busy.

The nice people over at Sweetycat Press have been McFans of McSciFi for a while. They included me in their WHO’S WHO OF EMERGING WRITERS, which featured over one hundred, up and coming, authors from all over the world, representing numerous genres.

Well, now, I’m beyond thrilled to announce they just released THE BOOK OF BOOKS, which details over one hundred new books you need to check out and there are two McSciFi listings; SPLICE: HIT BIT TECHNOLOGY and, the upcoming, Goptri of the Mists

As always, I’ll note that Sweetycat does not charge authors to be in their publications, and all editorial decisions are theirs, and theirs alone. 

Which makes all of this even cooler!

A little bit more below.

As you can tell, my multiverse is expanding. That makes it more important to me that you stay safe, sane, and inside. A lot of you have been here since day one so I’d hate to lose you now.

See you next week!
