This is my first book. I made nearly every mistake possible with this book, such that I refer to is as my Training Novel. It took me almost two years to fix the mistakes I made the first time around with it. The lovely image you see here is not the original cover, and the stuff you can find inside that cover is not the original stuff. It was once a house with a good frame but a lousy paint job and cheap materials. It has since been reduced to the frame and rebuilt by a reputable contractor.
Things This Book Taught Me:
1. Editors are good.
2. Self-editing is bad.
3. I’m not as awesome with Photoshop as I think I am.
4. Book sales do not happen by accident.
5. It’s okay to make mistakes so long as you’re willing to learn from them.
6. No one will buy anything you want to sell until you believe it’s worth the price you’re selling it for.
7. Every genre has expectations attached to it, and you should know what those are if you want to sell books in it.
Dragons In Pieces is a conspiracy/thriller superhero story, the first of a trilogy. It follows Bobby, a nineteen-year-old nobody, as he gains a bizarre superpower and flees those who wish to control him because of it. He’s a noble dumbass who would rather sit on the porch and drink beer than become Head Cowboy.
Tiny robot dragons have other plans. Lots of other plans.
