Update on post beta-reading stage for GUNS AND DOGS

1Twitter Cover-Coming Soon-ver2 1500x500

Earlier today I completed the editing for the initial round of beta-reader edits for the upcoming YA novel Guns And Dogs. After the Easter Holiday it will be reformatted and sent out for another round of beta-reading.

I think this is important, because the more quality control this book receives,the better the product will be.

Stay tuned for more information.

LeopardKingSaga.com End of year review, Part I: Doctor Mars Audiobook

Doctor Mars Audiobook

Cannot believe yet another year is almost in the books. Seems like the older I get, the faster time flies. Ok, enough with the depressing aspect of aging. This post is to celebrate 2015 and the books I’ve released to the world. If you’re a regular to LeopardKingSaga.com you’ll know by now that I do this during the last two weeks of December.

2015 was a relatively quiet year for me publishing-wise. I was busy writing three books (Guns And Dogs, Forever Mars, and The Leopard Apocalypse) but I did manage to enter the audiobook market.

Doctor Mars, was released in audiobook format on June 10th. I worked with the talented voice actress Elizabeth Phillips, and she’s cemented her place as the voice of Liberty Rise, our brave Heroine of the Mindcop Dossiers series. It was a lot of hard work but I enjoyed the process. To all you authors out there who’ve yet to take the plunge into the audiobook arena, I would recommend trying it, at least for one book, and see how it goes.

Can writers tackle multiple genres?

Universal Pen

Most writers have accustomed themselves to writing in one genre and sticking to it. While this is a proven system, it’s not the only way for emerging novelists to make a name for themselves.

Writing can be an ungrateful occupation: you can write for weeks, months, and years with little or no reward for your efforts. Like most writing books say, it is a “labor of love”. But taking the plunge into different genres isn’t as risky as you may think.

Let me give you an example. Say you like writing historical fiction and after a novel or two you feel that you’re not making any headway with building an audience, you could start a new book. Perhaps a standalone work from a similar genre fiction category (historical romance) and see where that takes you.

I’ve diversified myself as an author and feel that it’s a great way to stay fresh and not put pressure on myself or my writing output. I would think that for someone like me, who loves the written word, this is a great way to stay in touch with your muse, while taking on different-themed projects.

So don’t be afraid to test the waters. If that book of yours isn’t gaining any momentum do your research on similar genres and see if you can branch out. I’m not implying you become a hack, but if you can apply your creativity to something different, you can take your writing to a whole new level.
