SupaNova Sydney - June 16-18. Here I come


When an author friend of mine suggested we share a table at SupaNova, I jumped at the chance. Eagerly we booked our spots like a million years ago, and this may or not have contributed to our location at the event. We are right in front of the Comic Book Super Stars and one of the rooms where the main guests will be appearing. Talk about awesome location for two little indie authors from the coastal regional area of NSW.
 
What is it?

SupaNova, Popculture convention.

Australia’s largest producer of pop culture live events for “Supa-Fans” of Movies, TV Shows, Celebrity Meet & Greets, Toys/Collectables, Gaming, Artists, Tech, Apps, YouTube Stars, Wrestling and more.

When is it?
 
Friday 16 to Sunday 18 June 2017
 
Where is it:
 
Olympic Park, Homebush, Sydney Australia
 
Who is going to be there?
 
They have some fabulous people coming to the show.
 
Chris Helmsworth
Ricky Whittle (Lincoln from The 100)
Dean Cain
Teri Hatcher
 
Plus heaps more great artists, actors and comic book creators

That's not all. 200,000 fans are projected for all of 2017 all venues. Sydney has got to be the busiest, right?

Why am I going?
 
To meet fans and sell books and merchandise. Welcome to the Apocalypse Book 1 and 2 are available and I want the world to know about it. This series is exactly what this pop culture event focuses on. I'll have merchandise, signed photos, and books.

 
It's difficult for indie authors to get books into the hands of readers. Postage is expensive to ship to book stores, and if you don't back that up with a tour a book can sit on a shelf, sell nothing, then get returned. We've got to take our goods to where they buyers are.

Who's sharing a table with me?
Mirren Hogan is an author from the same region as me. The south east coast of Australia. We each left city areas to relocate to the country. I wanted more time to write and I have to tell you, the plan has worked. Since I left the city, I've written over 7 books, 5 are published, more are waiting to be published.

Next weekend I'm making the trek back to the big smoke to join the overwhelming live circuit of SupaNova. And I can't wait.


Hope to see you there. I'll be in Table 30 opposite the Comic Book All Stars.

Latest news! I've signed up to write a post-apoc series

When I started writing, I had one set goal: to become a prolific author. At the time I was into reading Stephen King and Dean Koontz, and I wanted to write books, lots of them.  Now I have that chance. After writing, publishing, and promoting 10 books, I've signed up to to write a series of post-apocalyptic fiction books for  Mission Critical Publishing. The reason I signed up was simple. They're innovative. The publishing industry today is fast and fluid.  I've agreed to write 3 books in 6 months. Each book will be around 60,000 words when completed. I'll need to become a writing machine. To accomplish this I'll need to do  2 things: #1 Write fast The only way for me to write fast is to write an overview of the entire book (or series). This can be one page per book. Then I write dots points that become the chapters. Complications, conflicts, solutions, all fit into these chapters. Then I set a daily word count. I'm

Welcome Latest news!!! What a surprise it was for me to check in on my online retail sites and discover some good news about my debut novel The Bird With The Broken Wing . I regularly do this to make sure links are working and what not. Anyway, I checked in and discovered that my publisher has reduced the ebook price to $2.99 USD. This is great news, because many ebooks are set at this price point and I've often thought that maybe this deterred buyers rather than attract them, which is the essence of selling. you can read reviews for this YA fantasy novel on author website Author's description of the book: "The Bird With the Broken Wing is a tale about a guardian angel who ends up in Purgatory with the mortal she was assigned to watch over. While working on getting her mortal out of Purgatory she discovers some disturbing news about her presence there." Things about this book you did not know , as told by the author D L Richardson : "This was ori

Science fiction predicts...

It started out as a discussion group on Amazon. "Who likes Apocalyptic fiction and why?" I asked this question and received so many great recommendations for books to read. Why did I ask this question in the first place? Because I'm writing two different sci-fi apocalyptic novels at the moment, and I really wanted to know that I had an audience. A writer's worst nightmare is to write a book that nobody wants to read. Yet, often its a case of nobody being able to find your book in the highway jam that is the internet. THE VIRTUAL WATER COOLER Everyone will tell you that word of mouth is still the best way to sell a book. The industry is clogged with books. Just like the highway, the jam is full of good cars and bad cars, and the online book industry is the same. Asking a question like "Who likes Apocalyptic fiction and why?" on an Amazon discussion group was the best way for me to get a list of books to purchase. This is the word of mouth that advertis
