Hi, folks! Dane here, and today I wanted to give a little shout out to an indie author friend of mine by the name of Oli Jacobs. He lives in High Wycombe, which is where I’m from, and we’ve crossed paths several times before. I’ve read a few of his novels and he’s picked up a few of mine, and he even penned a piece for Subject Verb Object, the anthology that I worked on last year bringing together eighteen indie authors.
At the moment, Oli is promoting the crowdfunding campaign for his upcoming novel, Deep Down There. It’s set to be published through Unbound, who also publish fellow Wycombe author Stevyn Colgan, and it works a bit like Kickstarter but for books. He’s made a good dent towards his goal but he still has further to go, so click here to check that out.
Anyway, the reason I wanted to give a shoutout to Oli today is that he very graciously invited me along to a little shindig at his house. Beers were drank, dogs were petted and books were exchanged. In fact, he gave me three of his Kirk Sandblaster books in exchange for three of mine that were on his wishlist. I’ll be reading and reviewing them soon.
Oli is also a fellow anxiety sufferer, and in fact he went out of his way to make me feel welcome at his house considering I was around a bunch of people that I didn’t know. But he needn’t have worried because they were good people. It was a super happy fun time.
So thank you, Oli, for inviting me over to your house and for swapping books with me! And thank you, reader, in advance for checking out Oli on Facebook and Twitter and supporting his Unbound campaign. And if you’d really like to, you can follow me on Facebook and Twitter too and grab some of my books right here. I’ll see you soon!
