I’ve been writing and submitting material a few years. So far, I have had zero sales but I’m not into self publishing anything. I know how Amazon operates, and could monetize pretty fast, but where is the love in that? I’m on a journey to do it the old fashioned way. If I get 100 likes on this page, I’ll post the first chapter of one of the works.
I have queried two novels.
“The Sci Fi Dark Romance”
One is a Science Fiction adventure that is a cross between Game of Thrones and Dune. Complete at 93,ooo words. The story has been edited down by 15,000 words to keep the pacing in the 2nd half.
“The Video Game Story”
The other is a video game adventure covering the culture regarding sports. It is a YA story at 118,000 words, and I have began the query process again in late Feb 2018. I’m currently writing the sequel to this novel.
I have submitted one TV pilot.
“International Thief Story”
Called “No Returns Allowed.” I submitted it for the ATX Festival in partnership with the Blacklist http://www.blcklst.com I blogged my experienced with that submission process and the reviews I received.
I have submitted a few short stories to writing contests.
“Sci-Fi Heist Story”
Completed a 12,000 word short story to send to the Writers of the Future contest. Sent it in for the 2nd Quarter 2016. It didn’t place.
“The Sci-Fi Space Station Story”
Completed a 12,000 word short story and submitted it to Writers of the Future contest in the 3rd Quarter 2016. It didn’t place
“An Intergallactic Tale of War and Innocence”
Completed a 9,000 word short story and submitted it to Writers of the Future contest in the 1st Quarter of 2017. It didn’t place.
“An ironic story of the Gods and their opposites”
Completed a 5,000 word short story and submitted it to the Writers of the Future contest in the 4th Quarter of 2017. It didn’t place.
This is a crowd sourced story I am leading as an experiment. I am have been forming many “twitter friendships” with other indie authors and together, we keep writing and adding parts to this group project with any possible future commercialization of it donated to charity.
