My first press release.

Greetings friends,

I apologize for my lack of posts lately. I attended the SiliCon Science fiction and Horror convention last weekend and was very busy preparing for the event. I will be posting information on how I made my promotional materials as well as how the convention went in successive posts. One of the first things that I had to do was create a press release about Rise and Walk. One author in the forums was a little surprised that I had yet to make a press release given all the success that Rise and Walk has received. I just didn’t know what to say until very recently. I researched other press releases for books and set to making my own.

I will have more updates soon but for now, here is my release.

Take Care,
