The End of the World Didn’t Come So . . .

Still Alive and Kicking

Considering the fact I dropped off the face of the blogosphere recently and the world didn’t end today, I figured I’d put together a quick post to let you all know that I’m still alive and kicking. The truth is I’ve been very busy with the whole self-employment thing and frantically working on Devil’s Nightmare so I can have it ready shortly after Santa Claus delivers all those new Kindle, Nook, and Kobo readers all over the world next week. And for those of you who already have an e-reader you most certainly will have shiny new gift cards to load up on some great books to read in the coming weeks.

(Insert shameless self-promotional plug here)

Devil’s Nightmare Available in Mid-January 

I just finished attacking my printed manuscript with pink red ink and have applied the edits for the first five chapters this week. I plan to take advantage of the downtime from the day job over the weekend and throughout next week (and the fact that the world didn’t blow up today) to finish applying all of my edits. I will then review feedback from my awesome beta readers (Thank you, Sara, Sheilagh, and Dannie!) and make additional edits during the first week of the New Year. Formatting for the e-book edition of Devil’s Nightmare should begin during the second week of January, and if all goes as planned, I will have this novel published on January 12, 2013! That’s my goal, anyway.

Devil’s Nightmare Virtual Book Tour

On that note, if you have a blog and would be interested in hosting me during a virtual book tour I would greatly appreciate it. You can contact me here by leaving a comment or sending me an email at SharkbaitWrites (at) gmail (dot) com. You may also contact me via Twitter @SharkbaitWrites. I will certainly return the favor for those wanting to promote their work on Sharkbait Writes!

I wish you and your families safe travels during the holiday week and a very merry Christmas! Thank you all for the support you have given me throughout this year as I have put hundreds of hours into Devil’s Nightmare. You are the best!

  1. You’ve got a great sense of humor, Robert. Thanks for the follow on Twitter @CinemaProfound. I will follow as soon as the Twitter warden lets me out of jail. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy a great New Year!


    • Thanks! I’m glad you enjoyed the post and took the time to comment on my site. Those Twitter wardens can be a real pain in the blessed assurance. I’ll try to slip you a pastry with a file in it when the guards aren’t looking. If all else fails I’ll break you out guns blazing! Be warned though, my shooting skills aren’t very good. Just ask any of my friends on Black Ops 2. Maybe we should stick to Plan A. Happy New Year!


  2. Congrats on your upcoming release! I’d be thrilled to host you on my blog. Just let me know when and what you want to post! Happy Holidays!
