ALL THE YESTERDAYS THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN

10/23/16

Well now.  The book reveal went down swimmingly, the Walpurgisnacht Jam successfully completed, and now...

Now, I'm already on the next thing. <3

First off, let's pay heed to what's come before:

TABOO 0 DOUBLE FEATURE SHOW RELEASE PARTY (10/22/16) - https://www.facebook.com/events/170001423450678/

And now?  Time to get reviews goin' and get the machine jump-started and juiced!

SO, wanna help out? Pick up the e-book for $2.99 then leave a review!   Good, bad, I'll accept 'em all, yo. :3

Amazon - https://www.amazon.com/Generalist-Taboo-Double-Feature-Show-ebook/dp/B01LXS7XU6/

With that stated, I've got more work to do.  There's still, what...two months?...before the end of a wretched, but prolific, year. 

I don't have time to rest.  Not yet.

There's still work to do.  Scripts to write, video games to work, game guides to write, music to produce and, above all...

The Work.

Angle of the Angels is done, Anger of the Angels is almost done, and Auger of the Angels should be done before next February.

Now all that's needed is to write the things and make sure the review/sales are comin' in.

I write the things.

You read the things.

That is our relationship, O Beloved Reader.

Let us enjoy each other for forever and a day.

10/7/16

Carb holiday - DEFEAT!
Author career - PUBLISHED!
Band - GIGGING!
Star - RISING!

Things are going to be busy as hell, but I do hope y'all keep up with me!  I'll be sharing an online booth at FantasyCon on Facebook!

Find the link here:



With THAT stated, let us go forth and ROCK!

9/21/16

This has been one helluva chaotic year.

My band is blowin' up, I'm in a SECOND band, I finished my first ever script (an action movie called The Mook), I'm involved with a clandestine group here in Bellingham creating a charity event to acquire winter provisions for the local homeless, things are poppin' everywhere.

To be honest, at this point in time I'll be glad just to end 2016 alive.  I've suffered love lost and a world that's just drowning in injustice and chaos.

Life sucks, but it's wonderful also.

If anything, this is exactly what it should be, though.  Bittersweet, but ever so much flavorful.

Now to get over this goddamn carb holiday. D:<

P.S. - Why is it so hard to find decent freakin' help?  Every marketer and virtual assistant I've gone through just don't do any work.  We'll see what's what, moving on.

3/13/16

DOWN!  DOWN WITH YE, NEWS EVENTS PAGE FEED!

You heard me.  Everything is changing, but from what I can tell it's all for the better.

Oh god, has the background always looked like this?  I got an HD TV for a monitor for the first time and I NEVER realized the background had a gradiated thing going on.

Ugh.

Anyway, on with the newest events:

The Indiegogo campaign that will help build funds so I can get professional-grade marketing for the books can be found here:

https://igg.me/at/thegeneralist

You can also join in on the festivities that help support the Indiegogo Campaign on Facebook!  Check it out here:

Don't forget to share these on your social media platforms!  Twitter, Facebook, whatever have you!


10/8/15

Writin' stuff again, and the demo (Five Moves of Doom) is pretty much done as of tonight!  Now we've got Chupaween comin' up, and hooooo boy - we've got some good shit planned for THAT, friend!

As is, the whole 103015103015103015 thing was exactly that - a date. :3  We're headlinin' at Chupaween, and we are SO going to kick ass!

SO, back to the writin'.  The Work awaits!


9/28/15

What the hell?

On top of a month and a half of pure and utter hell, apparently I'm missing five months of updates over here.

Fun times, fun times.

Let's listen to some music, get stuff updated, and go from there!

2/16/14

Four more days of Build Mode, then The Internugetathon 3.0: Third Strike goes live and full-blown Hype Mode!

https://www.facebook.com/events/1420958041530863

"What IS the Internuggetathon?" I hear you askin'.

Did you follow me at ALL last year?  Or read over all the information I've left in the "All The Yesterdays That Have Already Been" segment shortly below here?

It's an event that helps support the fundraisers that I do, in this case Project 6: The Next Frontier. :3

http://igg.me/at/theproject6

Do feel free to join!  We've got tons of giveaways, prizes, events, things to read and things to enjoy.

Gotta love the new frontier, yo.



1/1/15

FIRST!

And now we're counting down to the end of the Street Team Recruitment Drive, I've given out all the free copies of the Omnibus I'm willin' to give, and now it's time to crack down, solidify the Street Team activities and get on the ball of gettin' the Omnibus on Smashwords freakin' sold!

2015's already here and I'm already doing too goddamn much.

Let's have a great year together, eh?

12/10/14

THE OMNIBUS IS PUBLISHED

THE OMNIBUS IS PUBLISHED

THE OMNIBUS IS PUBLISHED

THE OMNIBUS IS PUBLISHED

CAN I DIE NOW?!

10/26/14

I...have been so disgustingly busy.  Just...disgusting.

The Omnibus Generalis volume 1 is practically finished - just gotta get the cover art done, a few more segments finished up, then formatted for Amazon and Createspace.

Speaking of which, I was recently put into a strange little financial situation.  Y'see, I'm going to Orycon.

Ahem: I'M GOING TO ORCYON 2014, ONE OF THE BIGGEST (apparently) LITERATURE-BASED CONVENTIONS IN THE GREATER NORTHWEST!

Seriously, y'know all these cons I've been vending at this year?  Yeah, from the CUSTOMERS alone I keep hearing about it, how great it is for writers, how it's apparently launched a few careers...I know I shouldn't go into it expecting too much, but I can't help it.

I sold out at Oddmall and I sold out at RCCC of all places, and now.

Now I'm going in at full bore, even screwing up my pride to beg for funds for more books!

Thankfully my own financial management has allowed me to bear the brunt of it so soon, but once again I'm freakin' broke. :/

Well, I'm (of course) accepting all donations and such, and are in need of more books to sell.  Counting the 40 I ordered tonight, my total will be 80...and I simply must have more to sale, y'know?

Anyway, events-wise there's also the Street Team Recruitment Drive goin' on!  We've got 11 out of 20, and need only 9 more!

Join, join, JOIN, JOIN!

https://www.facebook.com/events/335120203334012/

Just interact and help out, and you'll get access to stuff that only a Knight-level of Duder's Army usually gets!  Including a wonderful welcoming gift - your very own digital gift bag filled with stuff from me. >:D

For once, no - that's not a double entendre.

Now, more or less for my own edification, here's the link to the Internuggetathon 2.0: Electric Boogaloo -  https://www.facebook.com/events/1444641639149005

Well, time to get on gettin' on.  I've got a comedy set to do tonight, and I've got more to do. So very, very much more to do.

Let's get work done together, eh?

10/20/14

YEAH, I'M A GOOD WEBMASTER AND HOST, REALLY I AM!

Project 5 got funded at the last second, and my god did that stress me out.  Rose City Comic Con was an amazing success and I sold every book I had to sell save for, like, one of the 8 dollar loan copies.

Altogether, it was a hella wonderful experience and I sincerely hope I get a chance to get to Orycon after all, even though both I and my table-mate are still waiting on confirmation.

Bah, we'll see.  Even if it doesn't go through, I'll set my sights on gettin' the books ordered and sold, Duder's Army revamped and running properly again....

We'll see, we'll see.


9/11/14

SO!  THE INTERNUGGETATHON BROUGHT IN A LOT OF FANS AND MORE ATTENTION, BUT PROJECT 5 CONTINUES ON!

WE'VE ONLY GOT FIVE MORE DAYS TO RAISE 220 BUCKS, THEN A FAN WILL ADD ON AN ADDITIONAL 200 AFTERWARDS ON THE 22ND...BUT ONLY IF I CAN GET THAT 220!

OH GOD, LET'S DO IT!

LET'S DO IT!

FIVE DAYS LEFT, LET'S DO IT!!!!!

Also, got spotlit in a blog~! :D

http://brookcottagebooks.blogspot.co.uk/2014/06/author-in-spotlight-thomas-duder.html
And just workin' hard towards the events of next month, workin' hard on Taboo 4, and workin' hard to get m'name out.

It's been a frustrating coupla weeks, but whatever - just gotta keep doin' work, and eventually I'll obtain success of the standard that I wish.

We'll see, we'll see.

5/30/14
Oh boy, THIS has been an interesting month, all leading up to this glorious weekend.

GLORIOUS!

First off, my birthday went down yesterday (5/29, of course), and I ended up bustin' out an impromptu giveaway event.

Suffice it to say, a whole buncha my friends, fans, and family all showed up and just made the entire day worth it.

Check it out for yourself:
The theme of the day was pretty much "I'm givin' away stuff, you're takin' it," and y'know what?  It worked out just great that way.

Now, I've got a book signing event (in character as Frank Todd, nonetheless!) alongside Vorel Kethend and anyone else from the book series who's gonna show up. XD

Now it's time to stat seriously slingin' books - between the book signing event at Michael's Books and Oddmall - Seattle on Sunday, I'm gonna hafta seriously do some work.

And do work is what I DO, yo!

That and I'm also now in a collaboration with Ella Dominguez (Check her out heeeere~!), and it's already turning into a serious riot!

Let's get busy.

4/8/14
Well now, things HAVE been busy since two weeks ago!  I got internet back on and things have been...well, read for yourself:

>Story Time readings at 7 p.m. on Mondays at The Alternative Library
>Still gotta poster up the other half of Downtown Bellingham, go from there
>Register myself with the Art Walks (once a month every month)
>Get in with the Downtown Bellingham public people so I can post handbills and posters at protected public locations
>Hellhounds and Haymakers: The Workshop
>Get Taboo 3 edited and paid for
>Get the last three short stories edited and paid for
>Pay for Crypticon, a half table at Oddmall Seattle, eventually have to pay for SRGE 2014 and Metrocon.
>Decide if I can even afford Metrocon
>Find and connect with literary groups and book clubs (WHY THE HELL CAN'T I FIND THEM HERE IN BELLINGHAM?)
>Possibly Bubonicon
>Eventually penetrate and gain power in the Western Washington University lands, not to mention Fairhaven and Ferndale
>Four, count 'em FOUR party events: a new Internuggetathon for Project 5 (The Quest For More Funding), the Hugs and Knuckles promo party, Taboo 3's launch, and quite possibly one for the Omnibus Generalis Volume 1.
>I STILL need to hit up the two libraries in Bellingham and poster 'em up, submit my books for their shelves
>I STILL need to hit up two, if not four, book stores here in Bellingham and get 'em to stock my books.
>Book signing event at a particular store
>Update the website
>Close down half of my blogs, consider consolidation onto one catch-all blog
>All the marketing stuff with ATP, and I DOOOOO mean ALL the marketing stuff.

So yeah, yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.

It's like the song says, y'know?

On the plus side of everything, we've moved over 1000 units (1004 to be exact...yeah, I know,  conspicuous number. :3 ) of combined digital and physical copy, Taboos 0-2!

SO, ridin' high on THAT milestone, let's double it up, yeah?

Oh, and don't forget to drop by the Buy All The Things page and drop a buck or three on an e-book, yeah? :D  Spread it around, let yer friiiiends know!



3/19-24/14
Well, GameStorm 2014 came and went like a...er, storm!  Not only was it an incredibly positive experience, but I was able to get more books into the hands of new fans and expand the fanbase in Washington.

Only problem?  The merch didn't sell. :3

WELL, looks like we're just gonna hafta get Project Courier started with the materials I have then!  Opportunity from misfortune and all that rot.

With that stated, we'll start by papering Bellingham and get the books in actual bookstores!  From there it's two (possibly three) book signing events and Craigslist declarations.

Gotta increase them views, gotta get that gorilla guerrilla marketing goin' on~!

Last but not least, I'm shipping out the physical rewards to those backers who earned them from the Internuggetathon!  I do appreciate your backing, and your trust, but above all your patience!

It's been a rocky month, and next month is gonna be more focused on consolidating my local strength rather than reaching out worldwide like I usually do.  ON THE OTHER HAND, do look forward to the official opening of the Fansite (Duder's Army) made by Alerting the Press, my marketing people. :D

ALSO, a cross-promotional between Massive Entertainment Publishing and Sweetgyrl Designs~!

Just...I'm just busy. D:  Be a dear and either buy an e-book (GOOD GOD HOW CHEAP THEY ARE JUST FREAKIN' BUY TEN OF THEM AND GIVE THEM AWAY HNNNNGRASM!) or just spread the word around about this website or the links or whatever, hmmm?

2/9/14
