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, wyrd west imagealso 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!

Creating and living

The owner has found himself without his bills-paying-job due to a simple mistake and a strict company policy. For the last week he has been floating in a state of limbo. But through the help of many friends and associates he has become even more motivated to make things happen with SRP.

One associate sent him to a website where he can make graphics. He’s become rather obsessed with making ad graphics for various projects. This morning he made a new on for SRP. The Bookats approve, but he wants to know what you think.Saturn Returns Publishing (1)

The owner didn’t have this ready before he did an author takeover last night on Facebook. He did have several other graphics ready to go, including a short video that still needs some work. The video and some of the graphics were well accepted.

He was of course talking about more than SRP in his one hour of the takeover. Check out the video and read what the owner and other authors, editors, etc said during their segments of this fun takeover.

The owner is happy to say that not only did he have a fun time with the takeover, he also has some nibbles for new authors coming to SRP.
