“The English love an insult.” – Ben Franklin

At this point in time, it’s the only explanation in time for just how helpful people like Jordan Thornton (LLB Honours Grad; U of Portsmouth) and now the good (person/people?) at BooksChatter.  I’ve never thought of myself as a nice person, so they must be enjoying the insults….

Two years ago, with no prompting from us, a law student from southern England, Mister Thornton, sent 3-AR Studios a link to a huge TVTropes page about our flagship visual novel, OTChi Kocchi.  All his initiative, all his time.  We’re still getting sales as a result of folks stumbling across his page.

Two years later, not only is BooksChatter, of the UK, hosting my first traditional novel for a day, they’ve hotlinks throughout it, images pulled from half a dozen sources, and even put together a YouTube playlist, for heaven’s sake!  That’s a lot of work!

My family’s been in the US since before it was the US; it’s entirely likely that, 240 years ago, my ancestors were shooting at theirs.  Why are these good people being so nice to me now?

Book Tour – Day Three

BooksChatter!  And wow, but have they done their homework!  Not only are there links to some of the things that inspired this series in the Author Q&A link, they even went to far as to show some images from my older visual novel!  Heck, even my daughters make an appearance!

I wonder if anyone will be able to help fill in “If your book was made into a movie, who would be your dream team?”  That one is still a puzzle to me.

EDIT:  BChatter has now added a short video based upon my mentioned playlist of some of the music I listened to while writing.  Talk about above-and-beyond!  They even fixed the PJTV link that – being a member – I’d been unaware was behind a paywall.  Superior work!

Book Tour – Day 1

I’d like to give a huge THANK YOU to Rogue Angels for having the daring to be the first up to host “The Fourth Law” on its virtual book tour!

If you’ve questions or comments as a result of what you read there, please let’s chat in their comments section.  Also, please look around the rest of their site; so many interesting things!

“Where’s the world going?”

October Book Tour… Clear for Takeoff….

October Book Tour… Clear for Takeoff….

Alright, so that’s a bit clichéd.  Nonetheless, well sponsored by GoddessFish Promotions, almost a year on, I’m finally getting ’round to promoting “The Fourth Law.”

This virtual book tour includes interviews with me, with some of the characters, blog entries… all sorts of neat things!  I’ve much to say not only about this story, but also about creative writing, editing, and self-publishing.  Almost each and every day I’ll be hosted by a new website,  with their own series of questions and/or comments.  I promise to do my best to attentively address whatever anyone may want to discuss about “The Fourth Law” and Machine Civilization.

I think this is going to be a tremendous amount of fun, and look forwards to it very much!
