Last night in Merrillville, Indiana was the Indiana Writers' Consortium 2014 Creating Writing Consortium. I want to thank the IWC for their continue support of the Ailes Brothers of Terror, Mark Cusco Ailes & Derek Ailes (me). I also want to thank Author Kate Collins (Flower Shop Mysteries) for her breakout sesson on character dialogue and the tips she gave me for advertising Mark and my novels. I learned a lot from the conference and loved interacting with all the fellow authors including fellow shortfictionbreak.com authors Bob Moulesong & Michelle McGill-Vargas. Mark and I talked to Barnes & Noble and we will now be able to do a book signing at the Valparaiso location sometime in the spring of 2015. We sold several of our books to fellow authors and aspiring authors. I looked forward to working with the IWC with their events next year.
I was interviewed by Author K.J. Bryen on her website this week. Here's the link to that website: http://plungingintothenovel.blogspot.com Check out the interview. I give a little behind the scenes details on Mark and my latest release: Second Journey Into the Unknown.
If you want to read any of Mark and my stories for free. You can now go to http://www.wattpad.com/stories/search/derek%20ailes?ref=1 Check them out and leave me a review.
Once I'm done writing this blog, I will continue to do the last edit of Journey Into the Unknown: Deluxe Horror Edition. The book will go to print this week. The novel is better than ever with all the new stories by me. The poetry section has been deleted and those poems now appear in Mark's new poetry anthology: A Handful of Raindrops.
The Walking Dead returns tonight. A perfect ending for a great weekend.
Until Next time
