Share Indie Book Launches

We all know that a lot of book launches, book fairs, and plenty of non-book related events have been cancelled because of the current state of affairs we are in.

Because there aren’y many book events happening, I thought I’d give people a chance to share some book launches they know have happened recently, or will be happening soon.

A lot of authors had their book launches cancelled or postponed, so let’s share some book blogger love by sharing some book launches!

Share them in the comments, or find me on social media.

Chris Rock is Writing a Book

I’m sure a lot of people have heard of Chris Rock before. He’s an American comedian, actor, writer, producer, director and countless other things I am sure, and he got his big break as a cast member on Saturday Night Live in the early 1990s.

Some people like his humour, some don’t. Personally he’s not my type, but he has some good skits that I enjoy. I wouldn’t say he’s a bad comedian at all, just more so that his style and mine don’t overlap much.

Anyways, apparently he is writing another book.

The apparent title is “My First Black Boyfriend,” and is apparently a collection of different essays planned to come out next year and will focus on race and relationships

Wednesday News: I’m the main character…of course

I’ve wanted to write a book since I was a kid.

I remember in my Grade 2 Language Arts class, we got the chance to write a story. Most kids wrote a 2-3 page story about some dog, cat, or other simple story. I decided to go above and beyond that, cause my story was closer to 20 pages long.

I would write stories now and then in school, mostly for my own personal accomplishment than for actually showing others, but most of them were scribbled onto some pieces of looseleaf.

Fast forward to nowadays, and at first I didn’t know what I wanted to write about. At first I wanted to write a book about what it was like when my brother passed away several years ago.

I thought about it and thought about it, and I didn’t really know how to write a book like that. I’ve never read a book like that, and I didn’t really want to, so I took that as a sign of me not wanting to pursue that idea.

What does that mean for the fantasy book that I now want to write? Well I want it to be my story in a way. Obviously my real story would be pretty boring, but I want my book to be about what I imagine I would do in a fantasy world, while putting together all the different aspects of fantasy that I enjoy the most.

What can I tell you about the book without spoiling anything? Well ideally nothing haha but I will tell you that there will be the main character (based off of me) and he will go on a journey (duh!) and maybe save the day? Maybe die? maybe perish within minutes in a skyscraper sized fire tornado throwing sharks and giant whales at everything that moves.

Hopefully next week I’ll be able to share some very rough (and I emphasize the rough) sketches I’ve been doing of some of the main characters and the map of the world.
