Today we’re talking to Alexander M Zoltai, author of “Notes from An Alien.” Here’s what he has to say:

Tell us about your self-published book and where it is available.

  • Start with a 500-year InterWorld War.
  • Continue through ecological disaster and the decimation of populations. 
  • Follow the institution of a Worlds’ government, bringing a glimmer of hope.
  • Discover the challenges and failures of unifying three very different Worlds.
  • Explore what it takes to give birth to a lasting peace.

This is what reading Notes from An Alien promises.

Why did you decide to self-publish?

First, because Notes from An Alien is a radical “niche” novel.

Second, because I don't “trust” the mainstream publishing process.

What was your biggest challenge to overcome in self-publishing your book and why?

Taking on the never-ending job of self-promotion.

Why? Because, even on the Internet, I'm quite the Introvert :-)

What has been the best part about self-publishing your book and why?

The best part of self-publishing is that the book is out there, available, and I'm controlling the promotion.

What advice do you have for other writers who are self-publishing their book?

Make absolutely sure you get as many eyeballs on the manuscript as possible.

Is there anything you would like to add?

I have a forum for discussing the issues raised in the story here:

Plus, I spend at least 20 hours a week in the virtual world, Second Life, attending to various levels of self-promotion...

Thanks for the information about your book Alexander, and good luck with book sales!
