Indie Author Jeramy Gates - Jamie Sedgwick
Hi Jamie, a fun award is making the rounds of the bloggers, the Liebster Award. Someone awarded it to me and I passed it on to five others, one of which was you!Here's a link to my blog post:http://blog.karenwoodward.org/2011/09/liebster-awards.htmlIt's a fun little award that encourages mingling among bloggers; if you're busy and you'd like to ignore it, that is perfectly okay! I realize you're busy.As always, I enjoy your blog posts!
Thanks Karen! It only took me a week but I finally got my list posted :-) This was tougher than it at first appeared.
Dear Jamie,I've been on a three day bender reading your books. Started with The Tinkerer's Daughter quickly followed by Darkling Wind and just finished Karma Crossed. Your writing is delightful and refreshing. Your characters vivid and wonderfully humanly flawed. I do quite a bit of reading and I feel compelled to let you know (just in case you haven't heard this yet) you are talented and I'm completely unsurprised that your work is getting out there and taking off. Please don't stop. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of your works, browsing over your blog, and would love to know how to best support you in your adventures. So far I've been purchasing the kindle additions (will likely continue to do so until I've finished what's available because the thought of having to wait til a hard copy arrives in the mail is a little more then I can handle when think of how I could be devouring your stories instead) however I have a younger sister who is as much a reader as I and will be purchasing hard copies to give to her.Please accept my compliments and congratulations at what I'm sure will soon be your resounding success. My best wishes and regards,Miss Grey.
Miss Grey,Thanks so much for your comment. I'm thrilled to hear you're enjoying my books! There is no greater validation for a writer than to hear the things you just said. At this point in my career I really don't have money for advertising, so the best thing my readers can do to help out is just to let other people know about my work, and to post reviews at places like Amazon and B&N. Most of my sales have come from word of mouth alone. That's not a quick way to build a platform, obviously, but I'm in this for the long haul.Thanks again,Jamie
Just read your email "Protecting & Restoring Your Files" which is now saved & sent to all my friends. Thank you for excellent advice. Going to EBay now for hard drive restore parts. Thanks for enlightenment.
Thanks for stopping by Jake. Good luck with your project, I hope everything works out for you!
