Saturn Returns Publishing author Philipp J. Kessler is taking part in another author
takeover on Facebook. The Wyrd West Chronicles are by friend of the publisher Diane Morrison, also known as Sable Aradia. Showdown is Diane’s first book in her series. Diane has ventured into the genre of the weird west, where steampunk meets western. You could view the old tv show Wild Wild West or the Will Smith movie of the same name as part of the weird west genre. Even Brisco County Jr that was on Fox in the 1990’s might qualify.
Philipp doesn’t write in this genre, but that’s not the point. An author takeover is meant to help indie authors get their names out there. Some takeovers are genre specific, like the LGBTQ erotica takeover that Josef Kastle did last weekend. Many are wide open, like the Pagan Fiction Authors takeover Philipp took part in at the last-minute Sunday night.
Friend of the publisher Sarah Buhrman, author of Too Wyrd and other books, has put together a fun little vlog that talks about author takeovers. She will also be presenting a workshop on that topic at this spring’s Nebraska Writers Guild conference.
Philipp will be doing Diane’s takeover at 3pm Pacific time (5pm Central) on Saturday the 18th. He looks forward to seeing you there!
