Read This Book: The Book of Strange New Things by Michel Faber

The Book of Strange New Things

I’m a pretty voracious reader – so far this year I’ve read 41 books, and the majority of them have been pretty good. Unfortunately though, up until yesterday, none of the books I’ve read in 2016 have been absolutely fantastic. Michel Faber’s 2014 book, The Book of Strange New Things, however, simply blew my mind. Supposedly his final book, he wrote it while his wife was dying, and it’s simply one of the most beautiful explorations of love I’ve ever come across. Set sometime in the future, the story follows Peter…

Why My Next Book May Very Likely Not Be Self-Published

I’m an indie author. Or self-published author … or whatever it is you call someone who wrote a book and decided to publish it through channels other than the traditional ones. At least, that is, as far as my debut novel, The Trouble With Being God, goes. As you probably know, I’m working on my next book – albeit a bit slowly (we just had our second son, so I am obliged to take a break). This second book is definitely superior to my first – and is a rather…

Why I Don’t Like Reading Books

As a person who loves reading and has bought and read literally thousands of books, I never thought I’d say it, but I don’t like reading books anymore. It’s not that I don’t enjoy reading stories, or novels, nonfiction, etc. – it’s that I don’t like reading books.  That’s right, the ink-on-paper all bound in one big lump of dead tree things.  I can’t stand them. Ever since getting my Kindle I’ve become more and more accustomed to reading on its e-ink display. For a while it was all I…

Debut Novel on Amazon.com / Switching from Freemium to Premium

As already stated on the official book site, my debut novel, The Trouble With Being God, is now available for purchase at amazon.com. Due to this wider availability of the book, the book is no longer available as a free download.  Previously I suggested that content creators offer their material as free to build up a fan base, and I still stand by this suggestion.  One thing I failed to mention, however, is that once you’ve achieved that base, if your goal is to sell a product, then you need…
