What's Up? Armageddon Con

Yes I have not blogged in an age but I have really good reasons: like I painted the outside of my large wooden house over the summer and winter is for writing - right? 
Here in New Zealand we had an awesome summer - otherwise known as a drought. So I was able to take as much time as I needed to get the house weather proof for another ten years. This is great as our last summer was so damp as to be a slightly warm winter but with more rain! 
I have fallen in love with Joel Friedlander's MS Word templates and used one to format The Secret Empire as a print book on Create Space - You can find it here https://www.createspace.com/3987047

I ordered my first consignments of The Secret Empire to take to Armageddon in Hamilton a city about an hour drive away. The finished book is a delight to turn the pages and enjoy the professional layout of the words on the page, the running headings look great and my hand drawn maps printed really well in black and white.

@bullburton A J Burton @jaycuejay and I will be at a little stall at Armageddon con selling and signing our books! 

As well as printed books we will be selling and giving away ebook cards with links to Smashwords.com coupons for ebook downloads. 
I'll report back to you about the success of these cards. We are really excited about the con and hope to meet dozens of eager readers keen to discover new New Zealand authors.
A J says he's in trepidation about the whole concept but he will be shoe-horned into a marvelous costume and I predict he will enjoy himself more than he thought he could.
