Inside Northside Magazine

The November/December issue of Inside Northside magazine was published yesterday, and it contains an article by Ann Gilbert on “Northshore Authors.” One of the four authors featured is me. Cover pictures of Swords of Talera and Wings over Talera, and of Cold in the Light are prominently featured, which I appreciated. The article itself is quite complimentary and even has a few humorous elements. I thought Ann did a great job and really appreciated her considering me. I also owe a debt of thanks to Lana Gramlich, who first contacted the magazine about me. Lana Gramlich. I think that’s the first time I’ve written my wife’s new moniker.

Inside Northside has website but I don’t know if they have information about the current issue up yet. I’m going to have to look into getting a few more copies so I can send one to my mom and have one to show friends.

For my next blog post I’ll get back to my regularly scheduled series on public speaking for authors, but I wanted to share this while it was fresh.

Congratulations! Your mom is going to love it. Does she know yet or is this a surprise? Salute to Lana for contacting the magazine. This is great news and a great way to get your name out there.

Bernita said...

Glee for you and good for Lana.
Also tells us how one should never neglect these regional means of promotion.
So nicely incremental.

Kate S said...

Cool. Happy for all concerned. :)

Shauna Roberts said...

Congratulations. Hope it leads to many sales and invitations to speak.

Steve Malley said...

In no time at all we'll be able to say we knew you when! :)

Erik Donald France said...

Excellent, Charles! Northside rock star!

Sphinx Ink said...

Congrats, Charles. I'll have to see if I can get a copy of the mag. I'm even willing to drive to the Northshore to find it! (Or, if you can pick up some extra copies, maybe you can deliver them to your fellow group members at our meeting on Monday...)

Stewart Sternberg said...

Next VH1 will be doing a feature on you.

Angie said...

Congrats, Charles, that's great! :D

Ello said...

Very cool Charles! Aren't wives the best?

cs harris said...

Neat. Looking forward to seeing it.

Josie said...

Lana Gramlich kinda has a nice ring to it, don't you think? It sounds like you married the right person.

Congratulations, on both counts!

SzélsőFa said...

Congratulations! I've checked the website, but I did not find you there. It's probably the delay as you said.

It's nice to see a minor bad review countered with the mention of your novels in a fine magazine. Perhaps the critic had it all wrong anyway.

Charles Gramlich said...

Christina, yes, my mom will enjoy it and probably make my brother put it in the Charleston, Arkansas Newspaper, which is very small but which he is the editor of.

Bernita, yes, regional is some of the best stuff you can do.

Kate, thanks.

Shauna, that would be nice.

Steve, I'm willing to bet that you'll become well known before I will.

Erik, she did mention my "long flowing salt and pepper hair" in the interview. Lol.

Spinx, I'll see if I can get some more copies. Lana brought one home from the library. I have contact the editor about getting a few extras.

Stewart, well, I haven't reached the top and crashed because of drug use yet so I'm skeptical.

Angie, thanks.

Ello, sometimes for sure.

Candice, I'll try to bring a copy to our meeting.

Josie, marriage has just enhanced what was already pretty darn good.

Szelsofa, yes, I think their website is lagging behind the publication schedule.

JR, the magazine has pretty wide distribution so that's a nice element.

Danette Haworth said...

Congratulations, Charles!

Church Lady said...

Very cool!
Congratulations :-)
