Area author’s sci-fi debut honored on ‘best of’ list

Before I address rockchalker52's comments, let me clarify two things which are my fault, not the reporters. 1) The signing is from 1-4 p.m. Saturday, per the store, but given that I had it wrong when I talked with the paper, I will try and hang around until 5 in case anyone comes to have a book signed. 2) The book has real religion but is not Christian per se. It's not pushing an ideology. I just chose to use real religion and a real biblical story inspired the tale. It's written and intended for general audiences.

Now, rockchalker, thanks for your comment and interest. These days almost every publisher release ebooks and print books simultaneously. The marketing is not that different. My book can be found for many formats: $4.99 Kindle http://amzn.to/pnxaNm or Nook http://bit.ly/ni9OFh $14.99 trade paperback http://bit.ly/qIJCkS.

Marketing is pretty much the same, as I said. Lots of social media and reviews as well as word of mouth and just doing interviews, signings, appearances, Conventions, etc. I post schedules of all that and links on my website at http://www.bryanthomasschmidt.net.
