Art Walk Success

Art Walk Success!

When you read those words, I imagine you’re thinking, “Wow, they sold a lot of books.” That’s how most people measure success, I think. They measure it by money.

And although it was our best Art Walk event in those terms, that’s not what I mean when I say it was a success. To me, what was important was meeting all those people who stopped by our booth to talk. Whether it was dogs and cats, zombies, old men, or Sci-Fi history, we shared a great deal in discussions with so many people.

That, to me, made it a success. So much so, that I couldn’t wait to post my impression of the night. It started out hot, but Bria had a cheap tablecloth we hung up behind us that blocked the sun. And even though it was hot, there was a nice breeze coming off the bay that helped keep us somewhat cool.

Once the sun dropped out of sight, the cool night air refreshed us. It was a beautiful night – more of an October or November night to me – made even better by the friends who stopped by, and others who took the time to say hi and chat about anything.

New Zombie Signups

We also had several people sign up to be in an upcoming Cord Wheaton episode. J Gerard Michaels will be in touch with them to decide how he will craft them into the story. We are expecting a release date of early next year, or maybe even late this year!

Prometheus a Hit

The anthology – historical science fiction – was a big hit, and Bria was occupied quite a bit talking about the book, and selling them quickly. It also gave her an opportunity to try out some new technology, with great success.

The night flew by so fast, we forgot to eat. What a difference from some of the other nights, where we would easily go pick up food at a local restaurant, unconcerned that we would miss someone stopping by.

So, thank you to all those who came out to say hello and support us. We had a great time!

Spring FREE!

Spring FREE download weekend!

Spring FREE is our celebration of Spring. Kind of hot in Florida, but the nights are cool. We are offering 2 free ebook downloads this weekend, March 21-22, 2015, to celebrate the new season. What are they?

Grandpa Tic makes you another offer!

Tic Rawghers is giving away I Didn’t Run Today and My Body Thanked Me, FREE all weekend, because he’s so happy he finally has a paperback out, and he’ll be signing it at The 5K Color Run, in Tampa, on 3/21. This should be a fun event, and it has reached capacity.

And Why not Zombies?

j gerard michaels joins Grandpa for the Spring FREE weekend, offering the first episode of Book 2 (Zombie Menace), Spring Brain. And why not? It’s Spring, and this episode takes place during Spring Break. He will also be signing his books at the same event, though he’s taking a back seat to Grandpa.

Coming Attractions

What’s coming up in the future from Soul Attitude Press? We’re working on a how-to book that will guide you step-by-step to publishing your own book! What? Where’d our profits go? Well, we realize there are people of all stripes; those that want to do it themselves, those that need a little hand-holding, and those that want a lot of support. We fit in the middle of those 3 levels, helping get you published quickly and easily, yet not overwhelming you with choices and add-ons.

We’ll be working with some other publishers to guide you to good ones that offer more than we do, but we’d also like to help out those who just want to do it on their own.

We’ll also have several authors at the Gulfport Art Walk on the third Saturday in June, 2015. We’ll have more on that later. We’ve seen success at the first Friday Art Walks, and hope to experience the same thing on this other day of the month. As the date gets closer, we’ll spring some more details on you, and hope you can come out and say hello, and maybe pick up a good read.

Most of the locations are real. The roads are real (except for a few in north Florida), and some of the people are real, as they’ve given permission to be included in the book.
