The Wake-Up Call – a self-publishing experiment

My first novel is called The Wake-Up Call, it is currently available on Amazon Kindle and in print at The Book Depository (Europe) and Amazon US. It has currently had more than 35 000 downloads as an e-book, which I’m very happy with. I wrote the book as an experiment to see whether or not a reader would sympathise with what many would call an “asshole” if he told his story from the first-person perspective. I’m not surprised that the feedback has been mixed, some people love the book and to get inside the head of the main character Jack Reynolds, while some people think he’s too morally corrupt to bother with. My next novel,Hollywood PA, will not be as controversial and will hopefully get more even (positive) feedback.

Writing can be lonely, but can’t be done alone

csg_writing-the-revision-process-tone

Whilst working on my second book, Hollywood Ass., I’ve realized how lonely writing can be and how important it is to have someone to brainstorm ideas and discuss characters with, get feedback from and to help you with the thankless task of reading every word you write, two-three-four times or more. I think all writers need this, it’s essential to the process of creativity, where anything really good rarely comes out of one single mind. It has to be a give and take-process and it’s seldom (I would like to say never) linear, but up and down, ebb and flow, like a roller coaster where you’re sometimes on an amazing high and occasionally also in a deep, deep valley of doubt.
