My Platform

I have a fairly big, somewhat important announcement.


According to my agent, I need a marketing platform to make me and my book(s) that much more appealing to publishers.  For that reason, I am working on creating a website for myself.

I’ve also been shamelessly trying to get followers on this blog from my Facebook friends.  I could get more people’s attention if I talked about really popular, topical things, but I’m not so good at that.  The posts I wrote about 50 Shades of Grey got quite a few hits for obvious reasons, but I don’t like the idea of writing about Justin Bieber’s latest growth spurt or Disney’s latest racism just to try and attract people to my site.  So I probably won’t do that.

On the list of things I’m planning on doing is creating a Facebook page for myself or my books.  Maybe I’ll get that up and running if I actually get published.

One thing that I absolutely want to do is offer some special deal or giveaway or something for my blog readers.  A lot of you have been with me from the very beginning, so I’d like to offer you my thanks in the form of a signed book or something.  The problem is I don’t know what will actually be possible once the book gets published.  But I promise to try my best to get something going for my blog readers.  That’s the best I can offer right now.

Anyway, that’s it.  I’ll let you know when the website goes live!  Have a hastily drawn comic.
