Blog Moved & Book Giveaway

Hello to all who havefound this blog. Sorry I have not been active here, but I have found this blog format slightly less than adequate for what I wish to do - which is unfortunate since you arethe perfect audience for my work.

However, I now have a new blog started at authoradventures.blogspot.com where you will find a wealth of topics covered, ranging from the writing process to self-publication.

This week Ibegan posting segments of my novel The Saga of Beowulfas a podcast, read by myself, with the intention of posting new sections every day as I complete them. In addition, there are discussions on how to publish and market your own work, and very soon I will begin to make regular posts of each day's writing session for my next novel, The Jester's Quest.

In order to publicize the new blog - dubbed The Adventures of an Independent Author - I will be giving awayone autographed copy of The Saga of Beowulf on New Year's Eve, drawn from comments posted on the new blog. So head on over to authoradventures.blogspot.com and post a comment! Tell me how you like the new blog, and what you'd like to see. And please feel free to strike up a conversation on any topic on your mind.

Thanks for stopping by!
R. Scot Johns
