The Distomos

ABOUT

Mankind has taken to the stars; maintaining their empires through the belief in God. Peace and prosperity are kept through Church-appointed Templars: the police of the galaxy. But when the Distomos, a secret weapon from the Church falls into the hands of the enemy, two ex-Templars, Kieran Rhet and Normandie Jade, are hired to get it back.

With only a matter of time before interstellar war begins and the Distomos is used, friendships, courage, and faith will be tested when all seems lost.

Where is It?

I’m sure many of you are asking yourselves, “Damn it, Derek. When are you going to give us information about your book?”

The answer is: very, very soon.

I have a bit more finalizing to do with creating promotional material for the novel in order to present it.

I’ve knew with self-publishing that I would have to create a lot of hype. Most importantly, I want to do it right. There’s a lot of stylistic ideas for the promotion of the book which I have to still get all sorted out, such as copyrighting and what-not. It’s not really complicated as it is so much time-consuming. I definitely will have something up before the Christmas holiday.

Novel

Speaking of copyrighting, I’ve been learning quite a bit about that, as well as getting a proper ISBN for my book. They’re actually surprisingly easy to get done.

Being in Canada, the process is fairly straight-forward and relatively inexpensive to do. Fortunately, these are all costs I’ve expected to absorb while creating my book so they do not necessarily come as a surprise. It’s more the “cheapness” of their price that is the surprise.

In fact, they’re so straight-forward, I may as well show you the websites for them. (They are both Canadian-based sites as I’m Canadian and this is how I roll).

For ISBN’s, check out the Canadian ISBN Service System (CISS).

For copyrights for a novel, see the Canadian Intellectual Property Office.

Both sites require standard information to get started. Outside of that, it’s just a matter of actually publishing the book.

But like I said, there will be more on that later.

In the meantime, you can follow me on Twitter for my ridiculous ramblings.
