Kindle Giveaway Blog Tour: Scott Nicholson

I’m pleased to be apart of Scott Nicholson’s Kindle blog tour!

Check out his other stops for more chances to enter for the Kindle giveaways.

scottlandsailorTwelve novels published. Five short-story collections. Two screenplays and counting. My first translated self-published e-book. My first novel collaboration. A young-adult series underway.
A busy year. A lot of words.
And plenty more to put out.
The 90-day blog tour has been a lot of fun but a lot of work—the equivalent of a novel in extra writing. So one of the first orders of business is to collect all the posts into a non-fiction book called “90 Days of Nightmares: A Writer’s Journey.” I’ll probably sell it for 99 cents for Kindle and Nook and offer it free at my web site.
I have enough short stories for three more collections and I will be releasing them with a couple of bonus guest stories and other extra material in each, and these will likely be 99-cent specials.
My thriller Liquid Fear, a novel dealing with bioethics, is about 25 percent done, and it’s more in the mold of Disintegration and The Skull Ring. It’s been calling out to me and will probably be the next project, depending upon what else happens with my other books. And PS Publishing is soon releasing the signed, limited-edition hardcover of my paranormal mystery Transparent Lovers.
I’ve started both the next book in the October Girls paranormal-romance AsIDielYing2series and the sequel to As I Die Lying, so they should be good counterbalance to the heavier Liquid Fear. And J.R. Rain and I will likely continue the Cursed! series if readers want more. Of course, I’ll be putting out the rest of my screenplays, and Ted at Dellaster Design is working on formatting comics for Kindle and Nook. And the children’s book If I Were Your Monster is being proofed and should be out in a week or so, and artist Lee Davis and I are already kicking around another book.
The point of all this isn’t to brag, though I do take pride in my work. The point is that you’re determining what I am writing next. Disintegration is my biggest e-book hit, and though I do want to write the third book in the Littlefield series and bring back the sheriff from The Red Church and Drummer Boy, I will let that wait a little while. Mysteries and thrillers fare better than supernatural novels for the most part, and if I have just as much fun writing all of it, why not write the stuff you like best?
On the promotional front, I’ll keep sending out review copies to bloggers, but we all need a break from Scott Nicholson. Check my web site for special combo deals on signed paperbacks, and also, beginning Dec. 1, I am giving a free e-book version with any signed paper book order, so you can have one for the shelf and one for the e-reader of your choice. And I’ll be back in the spring with one big promo blitz and giveaway with whatever book is ready for release.
So consider this an informal poll of what you would like to see next from me. While it may come down to whatever calls to me the loudest, your opinion is important to me, too.
After all, as I’ve said repeatedly, in this new publishing era, you are the boss.

  1. Wow! Sounds like you’ve been busy. :P

    LIQUID FEAR sounds intriguing; I’m looking forward to that one. But I’m not a good one to poll for what to write next; if you write it, I’ll read it.

  7. I’m currently reading “Cursed!” and I can’t put it down. I just had to stop and pay some bills and read my email. I’ve enjoyed following the tour and keeping up with what new books you’re publishing, bio-ethics sounds like a great topic!

  14. Keep up the good work Scott!!

  15. I really need to get back to writing in my spare time. Marketing is not my forte`; it burns up my time and buries my creative ambitions under the obsession to count beans. I could have 12 or more books out now if I’d managed my time more wisely.

  17. Scott,I had to take a short nap after reading your opening paragraph – how do you find time to write all of that? And is there any form of writing you haven’t tried yet?

  18. Thanks for another chance at the Kindle.

  21. Liquid Fear sounds like something I’d read! I’m more of a scary paranormal reader, so more of that would be nice!

  23. busy little beaver there! do you ever rest? been loving the tour, whatever will I do next month? oh, I know, I’ll be reading those books of yours I haven’t read yet. Thanks for those.

  24. Yikes, you be one busy dude. Not sure my opinion matters much on what you do next since I seem to be in the minority that prefers supernatural stuff. I’m sure whatever you do will be a hit!
    teawench at gmail dot com

  25. Liquid Fear sounds interesting. I’d like to see more of Sheriff Littlefield, too. I plan to read Cursed! soon. I’m not really helping you pick one thing, am I?
    Thanks for all the great books and the fun blog tour. :)

    bluefrog62@yahoo.com

  26. Definitely write what you like to write!

  27. wow, Scott- I simply do not understand how you can write so much! I am in the middle of The Skull Ring, and enjoying it very much. Liquid Fear sounds like it would be right up my alley.

  28. Thanks!

  29. @Bev, we always remember our firsts. Most authors do one-week or one-month tours. I haven’t heard of anyone doing it for 90 days, but it’s probably happened.

    @Jessica just be ALL of who YOU are and you’ll be a success

    I fell into Liquid Fear last night so it’s going to be an interesting December. I should have it finished by Christmas if I don’t eat, breathe, or check e-mail…

    Scott

  30. I could definitely see how this would be the equivalent of a novel in extra writing-so when is your next tour? :)

  31. That’s quite a slate of work, Scott. Feels good to be busy, doesn’t it? And that’s the beauty of the new publishing era: you can have lots on the go and, by token, publish lots on the go as well. No more waiting. No more wondering. Just write, proof, publish and let readers enjoy your creations.

    Awesome.

  35. Heather, I will do something in the spring for a new book–but it will be different. Still brainstorming.

    AP yep it’s easy but still hard work.

    Guatami, welcome and good luck!

    Scott

  36. Count me in.

  37. From the last few posts, what has become most evident, is the ability of an author to be more responsive to the market if they self-publish. The author can get their work to market in a shorter time and is able to more quickly respond to market trends. If the profit margin is close to or better than what print is and sales are good, I can see no downside to e-publishing except for those of us who don’t have e-readers.
