Guest Post on Master Thriller Writer J.A. Konrath's Site

Author J.A. Konrath is a pioneer in the eBook field. He was one of the first to herald it's potent arrival in publishing. And he was one of the first to make an ultra-successful leap into the eBook market. He is also one of the most generous writer's of his or any time.

The guy's website "A Newbie's Guide to Publishing," really is a one-stop-shop for writers and writers-to-be, offering insight into the craft and business of being an author, stuff you cannot find anywhere else.

Recently Joe (the J in J.A. Konrath) took up uber author Tess Gerritsen's charity fight against Alzheimer's Disease. And he generously offered a guest post spot on his blog for any writer who would donate $100 to the charity. I was all over that. Not only is it a fantastic charity to support, but any chance to tap into a new marketplace is worth taking.

So, here's my spot on Konrath's site. Hope it's something that you can use, or at least find some entertainment value.

Loved the post. :) And that is a GREAT marketing opportunity. It honestly makes me wish my book was already published (and that I had an extra $100) just so I could give it a try. ^_^

But honestly, fighting Alzheimers is a worthy cause... my great grandma had it, and as a CNA, I've worked with other people who have had it too. It's always so sad to think about how their minds used to be so bright and ready and on the ball, and how they have fallen so far...

But yes, great post. :) And thanks for sharing. ^_^

Interesting aspect. Beneficial for both authors I should think. I hope you enjoy writing Jack Daniels/Ghost if that is what you choose to do. I read Ghost and I liked it. Some friends of mine and I are all dying for Dark Sea 3 though. Since I'm the one that loaned them the first two books I was just wondering if you had any idea when Dark Sea 3 was coming out? It's okay if you don't anyway.

Great post at Mr. Konrath's site, Mr. Batson. I do my best to follow his posts when I get the chance, and he is an incredibly knowledgeable man on the subject of self-publishing. It's neat to see even the vague opportunity available for you and him to collaborate. Reminds me of when Writer's Digest did an interview with Stephen King and Jerry Jenkins together. Biblical-based fiction merging with worldly fiction makes a great synergy sometimes.
