You mean I have to read…out loud? In front of people, actual humans? This of course was my first thought when Leah suggested the idea. Its not that I’m shy and for some odd reason I don’t really get stage fright (perhaps that comes from playing music for crowds for nearly 18 years). Something about just felt a little strange.
But whatever it was, I got over it quickly and decided to just jump in and see what happened. I have to admit, it was actually quite a bit of fun. It certainly helped when people laughed at the funny parts and clapped at the end.
Honestly though, the best part for me was getting to hang out with a couple other local authors, Leah Rhyne and Rob Favre. These are some very awesome people as well as very talented writers. It felt like we had known each other for years. Rob was even asked by his daughter if we knew each other beforehand, because we seemed like “bros”. I’m taking that as a good thing. Overall, it felt like it was a good start to building a little more culture around the local author scene here in Charleston. We’ve got so many talented people in our midst. I will certainly be looking to do more events with these two in the future.
In the meantime, don’t be scared to get off the NY Times Best Seller list and see what you’ve got right around the corner. Especially if you are looking for things that aren’t just a carbon copy of other best sellers.
Come and join me as I officially release my latest novel, The Expansion Project. It’s been a fun time writing it and I’m excited to share the story with everyone. I will be available at the brewery from 5 to 8pm with copies of the book on hand as well as some of my first novel for those that haven’t had the chance to grab one yet. I look forward to meeting everyone!
To pick up a copy, head over to Amazon for either the Paperback and/or Kindle edition!!
Ladies and Gentlemen, the title of the new novel has been revealed. The Expansion Project will be a sci-fi thriller that takes the reader on a crazy ride across the galaxies. But don’t let the sci-fi part fool you, Brian will continue to bring you a fun group of characters that will still live near and dear to your heart. Stay tuned for more details!!!
Its been a slow start moving into the interwebs of things but today felt much more familiar as I picked up my guitar and headphones and dove back into the world of music. Next up I’ll be tackling the world of animation to see what kind of magic I can make for the great and powerful YouTube. In the meantime, I hope you’ll keep checking back in to see things progress towards getting the new book out to the world.
