EARTH PLAN – my book

My novel EARTH PLAN has been out for a few months now, but I thought it was time to update the cover. That’s it pictured above, for the ebook. I just wanted to show it off!

Grey aliens invade the primordial Earth to genetically alter humans and enslave them. Ships from the Watchers land too, collecting DNA to preserve it from tampering. An energy shield appears around Earth from an unknown force, to quarantine the Grey infection. Eons later, the Earth is a hell. A secret society fights back with the aid of the Watchers, in a universe-spanning battle for life itself.

The original cover was by Tania Marie, and it’s still in place for the paperback for now. Read about that one here: https://davidsloma.com/earth-plan-on-pre-order/

What it was like to be a writer before the Internet: Markets

Before the Internet rose to mass use through the 1990’s, just finding a list of places to -maybe- send hard copies of your writing to involved a trip to the library (or the purchase of an expensive directory that listed writing markets), and a lot of time to go through a thick book (or several) and try to find out which publishers to contact. Then, hope they were still in business by the time your material reached them in the mail!

Today, we writers have got it comparatively easy as far as getting our work to readers is concerned. We can self-publish electronically, or submit our writing to publishers for consideration without even having to print out the manuscripts, pay for postage, envelopes, and return postage (and ink for the printer), and then wait a long time for an answer that may not come. Today, things are much faster and easier, and cheaper!

Here’s a video where I talk about it some more and show one of the writing market directories in book form that I used to use:

Leonard Cohen’s Change of Cosmic Address

cohen-bw

Thank you, Leonard Cohen, from the mourning lovers you consoled with sympathy, the iced hearts you warmed with tears; thank you for the hope you gave to those lost, for showing the way to something more, out of the darkness.

Thank you from your fans (I count myself as one) for your beautiful, truthful music and words, the inspiration you gave to other artists to follow their paths at their heart’s urgings, and to spiritual seekers to follow their soul’s longings. Thank you for the kindness you shared with those lucky enough to cross your path.

I crossed your path, in a way, when I received a personal letter from you many years ago, in response to a book of my poetry I had sent you. That gesture of yours told me a lot about your depth of character and respect for other artists. That you, such an esteemed writer, took the time and effort to respond to me meant a great deal to the young writer I was at the time. And it still does.

I hope you are able to read this now, Leonard, and that you are happy and in a better place. We can play your music and read your words when we miss you, but nothing will ever replace you.

Thank you again for all you gave, and see you around.

-Dave Sloma
