Not sure if this is the right place but YAY!
« on: April 20, 2017, 12:30:35 AM »
Really glad to see that my third novel now has an official release date (October 10th), and also cover art released into public :)

I'm an angel. I kill firstborns while their mamas watch. I turn cities into salt. I even, when I feel like it, rip the souls from little girls, and from now till kingdom come, the only thing you can count on, in your existence, is never understanding why.

That's awesome but indeed not the good place. We have a thread called "Small press and self published" for advertising your work.

This being said I don't know why we call it small press? What if one of us strikes out and hits the big press?!

Mike's work is published by Saga and Del Rey, so not exactly small press, Nora. They're also really good books if anyone's looking from some fun space opera with capers involved. I've just read the second book and knew there'd be a 3rd, just not when, so this good useful news for  me.

I agree, if there was a better section it would be under "Upcoming Book Releases" :)

Yeah, I'm "Big 5" on both sides of the Atlantic so didn't think the Self-Published and Small Press board was the right place either! Happy to be guided on where I can go "hooray!" about any future releases though :)

Yeah, definitely not small press then... Why don't we get a sticky post for big releases from big publishers?!

There are few enough in the community who are published thus, but no point not having an area for you few lucky ones!
