Not that I'm going to avoid Marvel movies...
Marvel and DC superhero movies get all the headlines, but did you know there are other comic publishers out there? And they are also making great comics — like Scott Snyder’s Wytches, above — that may make their way to the silver screen? It’s true! Here’s 40 future films from all the other guys you need to know about.

The opening chapter from my 4th novel, Parallel Visions: City of Angels, City of Demons. It's still in the barf phase, so it's going to be a while before it's available.

#teaser

I fumbled to awareness shivering, a ringing filling my ears. I managed to open my eyes, but shut them immediately as a red glare seemed to singe its way back along my optic nerves to flood my brain with acidic fire.

Through the skittering flame in what was left of my mind, I sorted through the sensations clamoring for attention.

Because I'm a superhero fiction fan, too. (Which may or may not be obvious...)

And the followup post...

Or, if I may sum up to a lesser degree: be considerate and interesting.

#author #socialmedia  
So there have been quite a few comments on yesterday's post regarding why self-promotion for authors doesn't work. From the extremely rude tirades-- which are summarily deleted, unread-- to the respectfully opposed to the graciously concurring to the downright relieved, it's clear we have a lot of charged feelings on this topic. I therefore wish to present the sunny side of author self-promotion, or at least what works for me as a rea...

I prefer teaser trailers over ones that show you all the good bits. What's the point of seeing the movie then?

I'll add to these:
 * More generally, we produce our food in the dirt at the whim of weather.
 * We cut people open to fix them.
 * We just let genetics happen at random.
 * We go places for trivial and nonsensical reasons.

Long ago, people were dirty and mean and ignorant. They would crap in a bucket and throw it in the river. They would burn people alive if they wanted them to die, and tell them swallow mercury if they wanted them to live. They were barbarians, in other words. Here are eight reasons why future generations will see us the same way.

Yeah, I saw Red... and had zero interest. I think Peter Hamilton stole his thunder!

While I think searching for an infrared signature of alien civilizations is necessary, I don't think the lack thereof indicates anything except that we're not looking for the right thing. The hardest part about searching for intelligent life elsewhere is we're using our current state of scientific knowledge as the basis for our search. Not that we can do much else at this point.

Not yet. Frankly, given the vastness of space, and our small blip in cosmic time: I'm strongly footed in the camp of: we'll never meet intelligent life.

But that's just me.

I do not believe that we're special; I think physics demands complexity, evolution; and predicts intelligence.

This is just a HUGE universe. Infinite.

" .....  After searching 100,000 galaxies for signs of highly advanced extraterrestrial life, a team of scientists using observations from NASA's WISE orbiting observatory has found no evidence of advanced civilizations in them. "The idea behind our research is that, if an entire galaxy had been colonized by an advanced spacefaring civilization, the energy produced by that civilization's technologies would be detectable in mid-infrared wavelengths—exactly the radiation that the WISE satellite was designed to detect for other astronomical purposes"

Wasn't it Douglas Adams who said if a finite number of planets have life forms and there is an infinite number of planets in the universe, then the math tells us there is no life in the universe, much less intelligent life.

It's not often that you see luck added to the equation for success. Too many of us don't want to admit to how important luck is to success.

Another unfortunate aspect to self-promotion is that it doesn't correlate with the quality of the work. Which could be one of the reasons that people become easily irritated with it.
 
Another problem is, that for some people, even one message of "I'm an author" or "check out my book" crosses the line. And this isn't restricted to potential customers, it can be true for the author, too.

The smart and savvy +Delilah S. Dawson hits it on the head once again!
Let's talk about marketing, shall we? It's 2012. I'm sitting at a table in the front of the room, a microphone poised to capture my every word. At this local writing conference, I am considered a rock star. Everyone in the audience wants what I have--a three-book contract with a traditional publishing company. Their eyes are hungry, their pens poised over notebooks. We take a question from the crowd. "How do I build a platform and...
