Occasionally, the little hobbies we embrace online here on BZPower can lead to something we actually do professionally. (Just take Binkmeister, whose work as BZP staff led to him becoming BIONICLE.com's webmaster) Now, while this isn't exactly a change in occupation, our very own GaliGee has successfully gotten her metafiction novel, <i>Drawn to Disaster</i> published.View the full article

Actually, she just posted it in her stories topic, and I found it and considered it newsworthy. She didn't email it to us or anything.

Wow, I'm news? That's so sweet. I was planning to start a COT topic, but LewaLew scooped me! :DYes, the premise of DRAWN TO DISASTER is a lot like the Makuta-GaliGee stories: dark, intimidating bad guy captures hapless blue writer and claims to fall for her. She suspects she's just a cog in his world-domination scheme, but then the plot thickens. The similarities to Bionicle are plentiful; there's even a website much like BZPower in the novel. I adapted a lot of my old jokes to my new world, too. For example, the minions of darkness are genetically engineered wolf-boys with lethal powers and the emotional maturity of kindergartners. (Sound kinda familiar?)Here's how the real world has changed. I was originally hoping to publish the traditional way, i.e., by convincing a literary agent my book would be the next big thing, and then sitting back while she swings a sweet deal with a publishing house. As one entered the Barnes & Noble, one would trip over stacks of my book. However, as I tried to convince various agents to take on my story, I started reading about authors who'd self-published. It's not like the old days, when the author had to pay a lot of money up front and then sell books out of his car trunk. Now you can set up the book for free, and make it available online through a print-on-demand service. So rather than hone my pitch and send it to yet another score of agents, I drew my own cover art, worked with an editor to revise my manuscript, and figured out the formatting. The advantage is that I had complete creative control. The disadvantage is that I'm on my own for the publicity.The paperback is now available online for $16 through my eStore. (You can also search for it on amazon.com for the same price, but I get a smaller royalty). I don't want to pressure anyone on BZPower to buy it, because I owe you guys so much already, for the years of encouragement and good times. But please DO tell your friends, like me on social media, request the book at your school library. Ask for it for Christmas. :PThis being the modern world, an author has to have a website. The first chapter is posted there, along with some art and a trivia quiz. If you have the book, you can access extra maps and stuff. I'll be babbling about all this in my COT topic, which I'm going to set up soon.So come by www.lilygee.com and take a look. Thanks for noticing, LewaLew!
