Greetings from Rusty

Post by Rusty Knight on Fri May 29, 2015 3:46 pm

Good day:

I am Rusty, I hope to be a regular with Kellan Publishing.

I have a series called Bloodgrue I am presenting. I look forward to others reading it, as it is based in the working world of Quantos. I have had since 1979. Bloodgrue is a serial series, based on a set of characters set around a Dragoman named Bloodgrue The setting is in the Royal city of Mount Oryn. I hope you find it entertaining.

I am a Canadian writer. No longer simply a half-centurian, my five grand-children keep me agile and busy when I'm not writing or sleeping.

I started writing almost half a century ago with a pencil and scribbler. Rarely have I been away from words. I write two weekly fiction blogs published by, myself. One I coauthor, one I solo write. Also I have slowly been plugging away at a novel that seems to crawl at its own pace in creation. Its life span so far is more than twice that of my youngest grand-son. The novel is only half created. My motivation to compete finally struck this December when I suffered two strokes. Being a wage work-a-holic didn't pay off after thirty plus years. I doubled the word count on the novel in two months, after it had incubated since 2009.  I was told to learn to relax, but it has been more work learning to relax then working was. So I pour myself into writing now. With over 20,000 words of edited work each week. The novel gets 2,000 of that.

So hello all, nice to be here.

Work in progress

The serial series 'Bloodgrue' is committed to release August 2 2015. I have finally committed to a launch of March 2016 for the novel, 'Laret' as well. I may be committed myself before then.

I joined my wife again after a separation of eight months. We are working on my learning to relax.

The writing continues at 20,000 plus words a week.

I also see Kelli's issue with author's not participating in promoting their own work. I haven't been launched yet and already have pre-orders lined up. It's not hard folks and Kelli has set prices very reasonable. Our work promoting our writing isn't that hard if you put a little effort into it. It is needing not near as much effort as writing 20,000 words.

I publish and promote two blogs, it takes effort and time, but well worth it. Promote your work if you want the rewards and recognition.

If we want Kelli to publish us, she needs to succeed. For Kelli to succeed we need to succeed, let's do this.

My first pre-launch party was July 18. I learned a lot. My web-site was poorly set up for easy access to the chat. The chat was poorly arranged and I choose a poor chat service. I learned. But I had people get in and show interest. Bloodgrue has followers. It originated as a blog with 1,400 followers. I hope to bring them to the serial series. This was their first opportunity to make contact other than through blog comments.

We need to connect with our audience. They want to know our characters, writing and us. They will buy in more if they can.

If you want to offer me ideas and feedback regarding my web-site is www.bloodgrue.com or my serial series is Bloodgrue

The series is launching August 2nd

Anybody who grants me relevant feedback directly in comments here or on www.bloodgrue.com or emails me at rustyknight2015@yahoo.ca may receive an episode of Bloodgrue free. But the feedback should be relevant to the web-site or Bloodgrue.

Hello, Rusty! "Bloodgrue" is a very cool name, and that's what made me read more about it... but even after visiting your website and its store page, I'm a little unsure what the plot of Bloodgrue is. Could you go into some plot details? Smile

Sure Samantha,

Bloodgrue has multiple plots. It is like a medieval soap opera. There are conflicts that happen, a love triangle that builds, rogue interests, and Bloodgrue's, Dragoman work. Then there are a couple antagonists who build in the storylines. Master Onar just continually gets more in the readers face as nastier. The Fellow will build as a nasty Bounty Hunter, that becomes good friends with Bloodgrue. Blue Hair is a merchant who is a retired Bounty Hunter, who mentors Bloodgrue, but she has a checkered past and is a hero to many, but has dastardly enemies of her own.

Most people like Bloodgrue, but then not everyone does. Some want to be more than friends, for example, check out Lilla. And Bloodgrue, even though he finds places and people, is having trouble finding the one person he wants to find. All the while he has to earn a living, guiding people or running courier duties, but it doesn't always work out so well, yet other times there is a bonus in it.

Does this help? So far there are 48 short episodes planned, I have most of them wrote and handed in, with possible continuation if people buy into Bloodgrue.

The subscription is $8.00 for a package of the first four episodes. Then each following package of four episodes is $1.25.

Thanks, that definitely helps. In fact, just the soap opera comparison clears up a lot of my confusion about why I couldn't pin down solid plot details.
