Voting closed

Recently my book, The Blackstar Gambit was nominated in the Summer Indie Book Awards. I was overwhelmed that I was even nominated as it was the first of my work ever to be considered for any award. My expectations were low, I never expected to even get this far so for people to vote for me was just amazing. I am the type of person who hides under the radar most of the time. I’m not one for loudly proclaiming how brilliant my work is, I let others decide that. I much prefer to just write and hope people like my work enough to comment. Perhaps this has worked against me somewhat. In today’s market a writer has to be accessible and I try to be just that. I make my pages visible so everyone can see them, if a comment is placed or a message sent I endeavour to respond with a like or comment of my own as soon as possible. I always reply to messages and I join in on conversations on other pages or groups that I am a part of whenever possible. I have made friends this way with a few readers and other writers too. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the organisers for allowing me to be a part of this years awards and I congratulate all the winners and hope they go on to further success. Who knows, maybe next year I could be one of them.


About jandomagala

Having worked in the ceramic printing industry since leaving school in the early 70's I've had a passion for the written word. I started writing in the 80's and since discovering the self publishing world have finally seen the first part of my ambition come to fruition, my name in print. Now with the help of wordpress and other promotion tools I hope to see the second part of my ambition come true, to earn a living from writing.
