Launching That New Book

A few of us here at Indies Unlimited have recently launched their latest books. My next one is due soon as well. So, selfish woman that I am, I asked for a little help with my research. My wonderful friends were generous with their responses. Thank you. In the spirit of the thing, I thought I would share their wisdom with you all. The results can by no means be termed scientifically valid but I hope you can glean something of value from it.

Promotion is one of those parts of Indie writing and publishing that few of us enjoy and most of us find a pain in the … well, you know what. I definitely fall into that category. Bottom line, I want to know what is worth my time and effort and what either isn’t, or simply doesn’t suit my personality. Being an introvert can have its drawbacks.

If someone you care about just wrote a book….

I have never been comfortable sounding my own horn, so my first two books slipped into the world with minimal fanfare. But for my third book, I have a list of a hundred rooftops from which I plan to shout, because it took many years and tears to write (and rewrite), and I want my characters to find the people who will love their story like I do.

For that and other reasons, I considered launching the book with an actual, in-person event. The problem was that when I mentioned the idea of throwing a party to a couple of people close to me, they said, “What for?” Of course, I thought it would be a fun way to thank everyone who has encouraged me and to introduce them to my new story at the same time.

Jeff Rasley Announces New Title

Author Jeff Rasley is pleased to announce the release of his new memoir, Pilgrimage: Sturgis to Wounded Knee and Back Home Again.

This pilgrimage begins on a motorcycle. The author planned to whoop it up with biker friends at the Bacchanalia of Sturgis Bike Week. Instead, an unplanned detour to Wounded Knee on the Pine Ridge Reservation leads to confrontation with a troubling family history. One ancestor fought in the Indian Wars and died from a wound sustained at the Battle of Wounded Knee. Another helped the last of the Potawatomi avoid starvation during a harsh winter in Indiana.

The journey in Pilgrimage even takes the reader across the Pacific to the Himalayas. Yet, it is back home in Indiana where reconciliation is found.

Pilgrimage: Sturgis to Wounded Knee and Back Home Again was released in January 2013 by Midsummer Books and is currently available in print and as an eBook from and Amazon UK.
