Newsletter Sign Up

I'm taking care of something I should have done a long time ago. Every author should have a newsletter, and I have (until now) neglected to set one up. My newsletter will be a (very) infrequent email I send to readers. Infrequent as in less than once a month. I promise not to spam you!

The newsletter will tell you about upcoming releases, special offers on my books, and any events (book signings, readings, conventions, etc) I have planned. Please take a moment to sign up. 

Here's the link: Matt Heppe's Newsletter

By the way, I'm making great progress on Book Three!

Back to work

Making progress. I spent much of July doing book research, outlining, struggling with chapter one, and goofing off doing summer things.

I got a little fed up at my lack of progress, so declared (quietly, to myself) that I would get my ass in gear starting on Monday, August 4th. Not for any particular reason other than I would be just returning from a four day trip to Minnesota for my sister-in-law's wedding.

Two days in and things are going great. I changed the starting point for Chapter One and it has really improved the flow of the chapter. 2,000 words over two days isn't bad for late evening writing. And now that I'm into it, I'll start moving faster.

Child of the Knight is getting very good reviews, but sales are slow. I'm not going to make the same mistake I made after Eternal Knight. After EK I had hoped that awesome sales would motivate me to write more books.

I had it wrong. Writing more books motivates readers to buy more books.

Oops. Back to work.
