Hey there everyone,
Wanted to give a quick update today for those who haven't heard. I've got a YouTube channel called Books by Bond. Over on my channel, I will be posting narrated short stories written and narrated by myself. There are future plans for outside contributions as well but I have details to share on that as of yet.
The first story is up on my channel and I'll have a second later this week. My goal will be about 2 stories a month. I can't promise that amount at the moment but it's what I'm aiming for. Hopefully you give this story a listen and hopefully you like it. Please consider dropping it a like or, more importantly, subscribe to my channel! Click here.
Thanks for reading (and hopefully listening) and I'll catch ya next time.
I will be extending my Patreon special offer of Dedicate or Die until 4/30. If you're not aware of this promo, let me explain. Dedicate or Die is a new special promo over on Patreon. From now until 4/31, if you sign up to become a patron of mine, you have the option of either being mentioned in the beginning dedication in my next book OR getting your very own death scene. All you have to do is head here and sign up for any tier. Then, I'll ask which you prefer and boom, you're in a book for life! How cool?
This promo was scheduled to end on March 31st but with everything going on in the world right now, I thought it would be best to push out the dates. Many people are having to stretch their wallets right now due to school closures or not being able to work. So there may be some of you who would love to jump on this offer but can't at the moment. And I want to make sure everyone has the chance because this kind of exclusive deal doesn't come often! I mean, how many people do you know who get their very own death scene in a book? Or how many people do you know are in the dedication of one? Head over to Patreon.com/EvanBond today and sign up!
A lot of places are shutting down and postponing events lately due to the COVID-19. The WHO has declared this outbreak a pandemic which means governments and event coordinators need to take precautions to help stop the spread of the COIV-19 virus. And I wanted to do my part to help!
From now until the end of March, my e-books will be on sale for .99 cents. Cheap, at home entertainment! All 5 of my books can be purchased for under $5. If you're going to be staying in over the next couple weeks and want some good books to read, please consider checking them out! You can check them out on Amazon here.
Avoiding large crowds and areas of high traffic, especially places prone to international travel, can help reduce the spread of the virus. Remember, COVID-19 is especially deadly for elderly and those with compromised immune systems. Being precautions and being smart can help save lives, even if you don't fall into one of these categories. Wash you hands. Carry a little hand sanitizer with you. Don't go out if you're feeling sick. All easy steps to ensure this virus doesn't spread more than it already has.
Hopefully my book sale helps a handful of people want to stay home over the next few weeks and read. Stay healthy and safe everyone!
March 1st through March 31st, prepare for a special offer you won't want to miss! Have you ever wanted to be mentioned in the dedication section of a book? Or maybe you would prefer to have a grisly death scene in one of the chapters? Well, here's your chance!
Introducing, Dedicate or Die! This is an exclusive Patreon special offer. For the month of March, if you sign up for any tier on my Patreon, you will have the option to either become a character in my upcoming book and killed off OR get mentioned in the dedication section in the beginning of the book. Either way, your name will be forever immortalized in a book!
Don't wait, March will go by quick and you won't want to miss out on this! Trust me! You can show all of your friends your death scene or dedication. How cool is that? Head over to Patreon by clicking here and sign up today!
In case you missed it, I got interviewed at Space Coast Comic Con. You can check out the video below! And yes, I will be signing autographs later! BYOB (Bring your own book)
First Draft Completed
I finished the first draft of my latest novel the other night! It always feels so good to finish a first draft. Next, comes the re-writes and the editing but we'll put that off for now. I read something by Stephen King once which said to revisit your book after a few weeks or a month. Take time and come back with a fresh mind. I've found taking a break after writing the first draft helps. Plus, it gives me time to start on my next novel. Which I'm really excited about.
Since I have you, let me tell you a little more about the book I just finished writing. It's called Deserted...
Want to read more? Click here. Author life is a weekly blog update over on Patreon. I will be posting updates every week on my journey as an author. Whether it be first drafts I've finished or events I sold my books at, I will be giving a fun weekly update. If this sounds like something you're interested in, click here to find out more.
Have you ever been interested in the truth behind an author's life? Not just the social media posts or the highlights but the truth? The ups, the downs, the work, the procrastination. Do you want to hear about it all? Over on Patreon, I'm posting a weekly blog series which I'm calling Author Life where I will share my experience as an author. I'll post everything and anything related to my journey as an author there. Raw and real. If this sounds like something you would be interested in, please consider supporting me on Patreon. You'll have access to this exclusive blog series, custom short stories, and something new I'm working on that you won't want to miss! Thanks for reading and I hope to see you on Patreon with me.
Do you want a flash fiction story or a short story written specifically for you? Maybe you want a sci-fi thriller about aliens on Earth. Or perhaps you want a gritty thriller about a man's twin brother trying to kill him? Maybe you want to be surprised by what you get and ask me to be creative?
If this sounds like something you would be interested in, then please check me out on Patreon. I've developed new reward tiers which include custom stories. Here's how it works. Once you sign up to become a patron (which is an awesome way to support me and my writing career while also getting sweet rewards and perks), I'll send you a message. Depending on which reward tier you've chosen, I'll write you either a flash fiction story (under 1,000 words), a short story (under 7,500 words) or for the highest tier 2 short stories (that's about 15,000 words!). I'll ask you what genre/themes you would like in your story. If you have an idea of what you would like to read, let me know! If not, tell me to get creative with it. I will happily write you something I know you'll enjoy! And the best part is, these stories will never be published. No matter how proud of them I am. They are for you and you alone!
Hopefully this sounds like a cool perk and I hope you'll consider supporting me on Patreon. It really is a great way to support your favorite creators and their careers. And the rewards are definitely a plus. And if this doesn't sound like something you would want, do me a favor? Share it with someone who might? That would be incredible of you! Thanks so much for reading and supporting in any way that you do! You guys are the best.

There's many of you out there writing a book, planning to write a book, or already have one finished. And I know some of you don't know what you should do next. If you're torn between self-publishing or traditional publishing, I can't help you there. There's pros and cons to both. You'll have to figure out which works best for you. All I will say on the difference is, I've spoken to many authors who have gone down both avenues and they always say the same thing. "There's more money to be made in self-publishing but traditional can help with exposure."
But that's not the point of today's post. Today, I thought I would give you a little advice on how to self-publish. Remember, these are the things that I do. That doesn't mean these are the only options or even the best options. These are the things I've found helpful and my little tips and tricks. So, if you're one of my friends/followers looking to self-publish a book, hopefully this list will help you get started.
1. Make a website
Of all the things on my list, this is the one you should do first. You need a central hub for fans and followers to seek you out. If you're worried that you don't have anything to offer yet then do what I did when I first started. Use it to showcase short stories. You at least want a site with a bio for yourself and a blog attached to it. That's important. Have a blog! You can use this to share short stories with people or even info about the book you're writing. Personally, I prefer Weebly for my website hosting. I've used other sites and Weebly has been my favorite. Best part is, a blog comes attached to the site. You don't have to install plug-ins for third party. It's all managed under one roof. And that's useful. Oh, and one final thing. Make sure your website is clean. Messy sites with poor navigation are awful. I've seen big name authors with terrible sites. I don't want to boast too much but I've received many, many compliments on my website (which makes me incredibly happy because I'm always working on it to make it better) so use mine as a template if you want to.
2. Social media profiles
The idea of having a Twitter or an Instagram might make you cringe. Maybe you barely like using Facebook. Trust me, I get it. Managing a social media account almost feels like a part time job. But that's technically what it is. My advice is to stick with it and just have fun. Don't worry about selling books through any of these sites. Sales from social media are rare. Instead, it's a place to connect with readers and other writers. You can share articles related to your writing or just books in general. Or share funny memes about the writing process. Be creative and have fun. Don't stress over it too much. Personally, I like Instagram the best. It seems to have the best writing community and figuring out creative images to post is fun. But you may like Facebook or Twitter more. It's up to you.
This is another you will really want to have. It's as important as a website. Think of the whole process like this: Social media is where you meet with potential readers. You send them to your website to hang out and get to know you better. Your newsletter is where you sell to your fan base. People who sign up for your newsletter are interested in your writing or your genre. Which means they are more likely to read your books. And shoot for monthly. It might seem exhausting to send out an email once a month but it's important to stay relevant. Your subscribers might not only be subscribed to you so you want to give them a reason to keep following. Try giving out free stories or chapters of the books you're working on. Anything to keep them interested. My recommendation for newsletter hosting site would be MailChimp. Once you hit 1500 subscribers, it gets a little pricey per month. But up until then, it's free. It'll take you some time to get there.
4. Publishing Platforms
Here's where we get into opinions. Sort of. First, you're going to want to use Kindle Direct Publishing to get your book on Amazon Kindle. That one's a must. And trust me, you'll want to go straight through KDP to publish. With KDP, you can do promotions and even make your ebook available on Kindle Unlimited so users can download your book for free. Why is free a good thing? Exposure. You won't make money but more people will take a chance on your book. However, there's one major caveat to Kindle Unlimited. In order to list your book in KU for free, you can't publish your book anywhere else. I, for on, like to have my books available on all e-readers so I don't partake in this feature. Although, you may want to experiment with using KU for the first month or so. Especially for your first book. It's up to you. As for publishing to other e-platforms I can't recommend Draft2Digital enough. Their service is excellent AND a time saver. They have services that will format your book for you and give you the formatting and download for the paperback version. Plus, you can add neat little features to the interior of your books like automated end matter and other things. It's an amazing service. However, using D2D and KDP means you're tracking sales in 2 different sites. But the reports make it simple to view.
5. Book Covers
It may be tempting to make your own covers but you really shouldn't. Even if you're proficient in Photoshop, it's a good idea to leave that to professionals. But a custom cover can set you back a lot of money you don't have. So, what's the alternative? There's something out there called pre-made covers. Artists make high quality book covers using stock art for one of a kind covers. And once you buy the cover, no one else can use it. However, this does mean that there may be book covers out there that could resemble yours or even have some of the same stock art. But more than likely yours will be completely unique. Personally, I use a site called GoOnWrite and I love it. The covers are excellent and I've yet to be disappointed. My cover for Echoes of the Past was obtained from this site and I'm always getting feedback on how nice it looks.
Those are some of the main points I wanted to make when it comes to self-publishing. There's so much that goes into writing and publishing. I could write a whole blog series about it. If you want to ask questions about the process or my process, feel free. I'm always open to questions. And maybe I'll do a part 2 in the future, if people care enough. Thanks for reading!
Ok, so there's this idea rattling around in my brain that I can't stop thinking about. It's a new character, a new book, and a whole new series. I'm not going to be dropping all of the details right now. However, next month's newsletter will be packed with a lot more information. So, if you want to learn more then please consider signing up! You can click here to sign up.
What I will tell you is the character is named Jeffrey Raines. I held a contest a couple months back to help me pick the last name and Raines was the winner. Jeffrey Raines is a southerner with an interesting job. What is that job? You'll have to subscribe to find that out early. But I will tell you, it does center around the paranormal. And no, he's not a paranormal investigator.
I am so excited to start writing this book. The story is already planned and there's so much excitement building up over the details. You're going to want to read this book. If you're into thrillers, the supernatural, and everything in-between then you're going to love it. I will end this on a cliffhanger as well. Jeffrey Raines is dead....

For those of you who have been around since I made my first Facebook page and started promising to publish a book, you already know this fact I'm about to share. The original name of my website was BooksByBond which matched the name of my Facebook page a while back. Since then, I've changed my author page and website to a more appropriate title of EvanBondAuthor. However, I still love the BooksbyBond name and tag. I've been wondering how to use it again ever since. And I think I have it.
You may have noticed there is now a page on my site called Books by Bond. If you're curious what that is, give it a click and find out. Or I'll just tell you now. I've decided to do something new on my YouTube channel. I've been struggling for a while trying to figure out how to properly incorporate YouTube into my social media and writing career. I didn't want to do the typical book review thing or even give writing or publishing advice. There's a lot of channels out there that already do this and probably do it better than I could.
I will now be writing short stories for YouTube. Probably about 5-10 minutes long. Each story will be narrated by myself and matched with imagery, also taken by me, to match the tone. The idea behind this is to create an audio book type of experience that can be either watched or listened to. With YouTube Premium allowing you to lock your phone and listen to videos rather than having to watch them, I feel there's a market for more audio entertainment. I'm hoping I'm right.
So, if you like audio books and short stories, I hope you'll subscribe to my channel and look forward to those stories coming soon. I won't be releasing them on any set schedule. With having to write the story, record it, record video, and produce it all, it might be a while between stories. But hopefully they're fun, unique, and entertaining!
Let me know what you think of this idea in the comments below. And please consider subscribing to the channel now so you can be among the first to hear these stories!
There's been a bit of a delay with my podcast and it's not premiering this month as I initially thought. I'm upset about this but I'm also relieved. I wanted this project to be well crafted and perfect and I can't do that if I'm forced to rush to get it out there. So, instead of the podcast premiering this January, it will instead be coming out in October. It's a long time to wait but I think it's the appropriate time of year for the type of podcast that it is. And it gives me time to work out all of the kinks and make sure that everything is ready and polished. I'm very excited to share this project with you and I hope you all love it. More details will be coming later.
If you made a resolution to read more this 2020 then I've got some good news for you! My books are currently only .99 cents. Don't wait, though! The sale ends January 15th! Get all of my books for less than $5. Happy new year everyone!

Failure. It sucks. No one likes to fail. But that's the nature of competing, isn't it? Someone has to win which means someone has to fail. Both teams can't take home the Super Bowl ring and only one candidate gets to be President. Someone always has to fail.
I recently participated in a short story contest. It was a Halloween themed contest. The stories were supposed to be scary and take a classic story or trope and give it a twist. I had a lot of fun with this idea. Here's what I came up with. A ghostly woman in white hitchhikes on the side of the road, waiting for her next victim. A man pulls over to pick her up, only for her to try and kill him. However, he's not what he appears either and the woman in white ends up becoming the hunted.
It was a classic story, woman in white, with a neat twist. I spent a lot of time writing, re-writing, editing, re-editing, proof reading, and so on. Finally, I hit submit, crossed my fingers, and hoped to win. The winner would take home $75. Money I would have used towards expensive advertising costs. Of course, if you read the title of this post you already know if I won or not.
When they announced the winners, I was obviously let down. I really loved my idea. The character was awesome. The execution of the story was well received by the few people who proofed it for me. And reading the stories that did win, I felt even worse. None of them encapsulated the nature of the contest. None really followed the guidelines of the contest. I almost felt cheated. But something happened.
If you're hoping for some twist to this story where the judges changed their mind or announced they made some mistake and I was actually the winner, sorry to disappoint. And to be honest, I'm glad they didn't. Because I learned something more valuable than the minimal prize money. I learned self appreciation. The story and the character might not have been enough for the judges but it was certainly enough for me! I loved my idea so much that I decided to give the character his very own series. And when you break down writing, whether you write for fun, you're a traditionally published author, or self-published, you should write for yourself first and an audience second. If you loved the idea and the story, that's all that matters. Meaning, don't write what you think other people will like if it's not what you like. Don't write YA novels because you think they'll sell better. Don't write non-fiction because you think it'll be easier. Always write what you love, no matter what. You like writing horror? Do it! You love writing fantasy? Do it! Your first book isn't selling well? Write another!
If you would like to read the story that I'm so proud of, there's a couple of options for you. You can head over to Patreon.com/EvanBond and become a patron. It's available exclusively for Patreon supporters for now. Or, you can wait an indeterminate amount of time for my short story collection book to come out. That's right, I will be piecing together some of my favorite short stories that I've written over the years as well as some new ones. I'll slap them together in a book and make it available. However, I don't have a release date for that yet as it's just in the planning stages. I need far more short stories in order to make it. So, you could be waiting a really long time. Why not just head over to Patreon now to read it? But, whatever you end up doing, I hope you enjoyed this blog post and learned something from it. Until next time, keep wandering. Just not alone.
November 9th, 2019. Saturday. There will be an event at the USF St. Petersburg campus. It's called the Festival of Reading. There will be several authors there headlining such as Tim Dorsey and R.L. Stine. In addition to author talks and book signings, there will be a market surrounding the event as well. It's a huge festival for my fellow book nerds! It's going to be awesome.
Of course, I will be attending and also selling my books. So, if you're in the Tampa Bay area and want to meet me (and some other authors) come say hi. I'm really excited for this event and hope to see many of you there!
Over the weekend, I got a bit of sad news. Due to Hurricane Dorian, the Space Coast Comic Con was cancelled. As you can imagine, I was pretty bummed about this. I've been looking forward to this con all year. I was excited to use what I learned a couple of weeks ago.
The good news is, the convention will be giving vendors a table at their next convention in 2020 so I at least have time to make any changes to my strategy and set up. Plus, if you think about it, it might be for the best. Even if Dorian doesn't hit the state, a lot of people may have cancelled their plans to travel to the convention because of the storm. Which means, there may have been a lot less people. So, it might work out for the best.
I'm not going to waste this trip, however. Since I already booked a hotel, which can't be cancelled now, I'm going to take my family on a vacation. My son will be excited to check out the Kennedy Space Center. Now, we just have to hope the hurricane doesn't decide to ruin more of our plans!
The 5th annual on point book fair is still happening on September 21st at 10AM. That one is in Tampa so if you're local, come check it out. It will be a Westshore Plaza in Tampa. Hope to see you there!
This past weekend, I worked my first comic convention. I met a lot of awesome people and had a lot of fun. Above all, I learned a lot. So, today I thought I would share with you what I learned in case there are other authors out there reading this and wanting to attempt to work a convention as well. Or, maybe you're just interested in what I learned. Either way, here are the 5 things I learned working my first convention.
5. Get to know your neighbors
A lot of authors are introverts and that's okay. I'm one of them. I'm not really a fan of public speaking or talking to strangers. However, conventions are long. This particular convention was only 2 days, Saturday and Sunday, but some can go from Thursday through Sunday. That's a long time to work around other people and not get talking to them. You never know what you might learn from those around you. Maybe you'll end up next to a seasoned veteran and they can give you tips to better your chances at making a sale. Plus, it's a lot more fun to chit chat with your neighbors when the con gets slow, and it will. When they did a costume contest, almost everyone cleared out and left the vendors alone. It was the perfect time to sit back and have a fun conversation with your fellow con workers.
4. Spend extra care on your booth/sales pitch
Like I mentioned above, a lot of authors are introverted. In order to sell books, you need to talk to people. You can't expect your book to sell itself, regardless of how good it might be. And I don't mean attack everyone who walks by and throw your speech at them. Not everyone is going to stop at your booth. But greet everyone who walks by. Say "Hi" or ask how they're doing. And when you do reel someone in, know what you're going to say to them. If you're selling multiple books in different genres, start by telling them what genres you write in and which one is their favorite. For example, I write mostly thriller, suspense, and horror. When someone responded that they loved thriller books, I would pick up Death Can Wait and hand it to them, explaining what the story is about. At the same time, it isn't just your sales pitch that's going to draw the crowd. You want them to notice you. Have a display that catches the eye, something different from the norm. I have the ammo crate I built and used it as the display case for my books. I received a few compliments on it saying the set up was original. If you can, go all out. Get a nice table cloth and a runner with your name on it. Get a large banner with original artwork behind you and plaster your name and website on it. You want people to see you from across the room.
3. Bring someone with you
Now, I know I told you to talk to your neighbors but you can't always rely on them. Maybe they're getting a lot of traffic and you're not. Maybe they've stepped away for a few minutes to use the bathroom and get a bite to eat. Either way, you'll want someone to talk to. If the con gets slow, it's easy to get bored. And on top of that, it's nice to have someone there to help you. Maybe you want to run around the convention hall and check out the vendors. If you leave your booth, how will you make money? What if a potential customer stops by? Will they move on and not come back? Having someone there, who has read your books and can pitch it, is essential. Make sure it's someone you can trust to help you. If your partner lets you down, it's going to be hard to recover. Especially if sales aren't going the way you planned. Which brings me to my next point.
2. Be prepared to fail
You might sell nothing the entire convention. You might sell out. There's no way to know for sure until after it's all over. But be prepared to fail and sell nothing. I won't lie, Sunday was brutal. The convention was quiet and there were hardly any patrons there. I didn't make a single sale on Sunday. The vendors around me didn't fare much better. The day was dead. And it was tough. It's too easy to give up and go home, upset that you wasted a whole day. Especially when you paid to be there. Trust me, I know because that's how I felt most of Sunday. It's heart wrenching. But you can't focus on that. You have to focus on what you learned from the experience. There's always something new to learn and things you could do better. And remember, selling might be important but so is networking. If you're not selling, hand out business cards or bookmarks or push your newsletter signup (which you should definitely have out on your table). You might not make a sale that day but someone may go home and buy your book on Nook or Kindle. And that's still a win.
1. Wear comfortable shoes
This might be obvious but wear something comfortable. Especially the shoes. You should be spending most of the day on your feet. Trust me, it helps. People find you more approachable if you're on your feet and engaging. If you're sitting there, looking bored, people won't approach you. Most conventions centers have concrete floors. So there's not a lot of support there. Your feet and your back will hurt by the end of the day. So, think carefully about what you're going to wear. I do recommend wearing cosplay which either matches the convention theme or your writing theme. It will bring people in to your booth. For example, I decked myself out with Agents of Shield items since this was a Marvel themed convention. But make sure you'll be comfortable. It's going to be a long day.
There were so many more things I learned than just these five but these are the ones most worth noting. Maybe if this blog post is well received, I'll write another one. And if you're an author who wants to sell at a convention and haven't, you should try. You won't know what will happen until you do. And if you have any questions or want any advice, feel free to reach out. I'm always happy to share whatever knowledge I have and help someone out!

There's been a major update to my Patreon page and the rewards are better than ever. Not only have I changed the name of the tiers, to clever titles I might add, but I've added some rewards you're really not going to want to miss out on.
Why support me on Patreon, you might ask? Well, besides the cool rewards and exclusive content you get access to, you'll also be helping me pay for marketing, cover designs, formatting, editing, and other services. That way, I have more time to focus on writing! But what are these rewards I keep speaking of?
There's a lot going on over on Patreon and you can be a part of it! Don't miss out on these cool perks and support me in the process. Your support means the world to me and I can't do it without you. Thanks for reading and, if you do decide to become a patron, a special thank you to you!
See the gallery below for the reward tier names. I'm proud of them and the design!
As you may be aware of by now, I have a new blog series coming out this year titled Chiller Chronicles. If not, here's a quick recap. Unsolved murders, unexplained mysteries, and true encounters. Told in a fiction style, these stories are anything but. Basically, fictionalized short stories based on true life events and encounters. It's going to be a lot of fun.
But let's get to the update bit. I don't have an exact release date for you just yet. However, I do know about when it will be coming out. And it couldn't be more appropriate. Any guesses? If you guessed October, you're correct.
That's right, the month dedicated to all things spooky will be the time my horror series is released. Seems fitting, if I do say so myself. As I get more details, I will let you know a more specific time. Until then, I hope you're looking forward to the new series!
