So, I’m a Published Writer…

… Now the work begins. Apparently.

So hey, I’m Jack Graves. Not my real name. No one would buy a book with my real name on it unless it was on the history of trains in World War II.

After The Angels by [Graves, Jack]Sadly, Jack Graves is a name I now share with the noted YouTube ejaculation guru. That Jack Graves waited until my book was already published to start his Empire of Jizz… Fuck that guy. Or don’t. It might get messy.

Anyway, my book’s been out for a few months now and it’s still pretty strange. I have yet to be seized upon and hailed as the genius of the century, which is kind of disappointing but expected. I think it’s mostly friends and family who have actually bought the book so far, which I’m very grateful for.

Promoting a book is something I’m learning to do as I go, and it looks like it’s going to be a slow burn. Which isn’t too bad, at least it’s burning at all. And it’s pretty satisfying, having the fruit of my brain out there for people to read.

The feedback has been interesting too. Being who I am, I’ve scrupulously ignored all the positive responses and focused on what I could have done better. Which is a lot of things, depending on who you’re talking to. I could have done more editing, could have made it a little longer, could have made it a little shorter, but at some point, enough is enough, and I had an atavistic need to throw it to the wolves. It’s a pretty common approach to writing, from what I’ve heard.

I’ll post more about my approach to writing later, as well as some of my super great opinions on other things I like, some of my earlier short fiction, and other things.

See you then.
