When it comes to choosing a literary genre or sub-genre for a book, it can get a bit confusing. Today, with there being so many genres and sub-genres, It can be enough to drive you bonkers. If you are brave enough to venture into the RIU, I thought it may be beneficial to lay out the details of exactly what you can expect.
Well, there’s good news and there’s bad news. The good news is that a new book from The Dark Corner has been released. The bad news is that it is no longer exclusive to RIU Citizens. But never fear because something has appeared on the horizon that we are exploring and will soon make available to RIU Citizens. Read the post to find out more.
I was sitting around thinking and it occurred to me that some people may be a little bit confused on what it is exactly that I write. Readers are a finicky sort and they like things in neat aisles normally so they can identify exactly what it is that they want to be immersed in as far as whatever they want to read. That’s understandable because you want to make sure that whatever you’re reading is something that you going to enjoy in your chosen genre of interest.
I talk a lot about superheroes butI haven’t actually put out anything close to being superheroic. As a matter fact, I’ve put something out that is classified in a totally different genre. Now, why am I doing that? Am I trying to confuse you guys and just send mixed signals? God forbid. There’s actually a method to my madness and today I thought it might be high time I explain it.
I have been diligently working to get the ball rolling on The Dark Corner Archives and the first updated and revised story is up and running. Because I did some many things differently and the tools have changed drastically for indie publishers, I spent more time getting acclimated to my new tools than I did revising the story.
The first book in the series, The Visitor, launched today. It has a new cover and new content. It is the shortest out of all the stories in the series but it gets the ball rolling. It is the story that brings up a lot of unanswered questions whose solution you can only find in the books that follow it. It’s free and will forever remain that way. I make it easy for you to grab a copy so click on the link and read this post now.
So I’m doing things a little bit different here at R.I.U. HQ. In all the posts that I’ve done on my blog, I’ve never done a book recommendation. I have plenty of reviews but because of the new direction that we’re taking, I haven’t had the time to actually do a whole lot of reviews even though I’ve read a handful of books in the last couple of weeks. But what I wanted to do with this new beginning is to really add a little bit more value to the people who come to the website. So I am going to give book reviews when I can and book recommendations when I see that a book is really enjoyable to me and that I think will be enjoyable to my readers as well.
So this week in my weekly blog post, we have my first book recommendation which comes from writer that I very familiar with, Mr. Roger Sterns about a small town in Kansas.
