The Official Website of Kelly Varesio | Author of Insperatus

June3rd

It’s been heeeeeeeectic for me lately!
Thought I’d finally update my site to get my mind back to where it enjoys being most. Insperatus is really thriving. I have a good sir over at ofsciencefiction.blogspot.com doing a review for me, so cross your fingers that he gets a lot out of my work. It had been a major hit with local teens, too.
I’m graduating High School June 12th–in a WEEK. To me, that is the most bitter-sweet sensation I have yet to experience in my life. Since I go to a school with kids I grew up with since I was five, it’s hard to realize I won’t be returning to CCS in September. Instead, I have been accepted into one of the best nursing programs around, at CCC, where I’ll be wrapped up in a [condensed from four year] two year RN nursing program, hooked up directly with the hospital. Needless to say, starting in the fall I will be one bussssssy girl. Too bad writing is something my body, mind, and soul just will not give up, so don’t believe that schooling, no matter how rigorous, will stop me from my sequel. :}
This summer, as my only sort of relaxation/break time for like another year, I will be promoting my book to the best of my ability. I’ll have sooooo much more time to get hooked up with the local papers, fairs, and projects. I have started my search for a big publisher that will pick Insperatus up, so the sequel will have no problem in its publication. My biggest goal for summer is to get Insperatus into just about every SHORE bookstore, as well as Borders in my surrounding Jersey area.
Lastly, I want to explain what Wizard World Philly is, and my part in it. I will have a table at one of the largest comic-cons in the country, along side star artists and celebrities such as Lou Ferigno and various other movie cast. There I’ll not only be selling copies of Insperatus and handing out bookmarks and cards [and possibly selling T-shirts! O.O], I’ll be sketching as well. I am, as a hobbyist, an artist as well as an author. I have tons of drawings of my characters from Insperatus, and also from Disney characters, Marvel characters, and more. I will be sketching by request for a small fee there, so I’m super excited. This is my next signing, the weekend of the 19th, because until then I’m pretty much booked up with graduation, graduation parties, and work [I’m part-time at a doctor’s office].
Anyway, that’s about it for now. As I always like to say, YOUR promotion is the absolute BEST way of getting Insperatus higher and higher on the totem pole of those millions of books available for sale. With even minute reviews, or blog write-ups on any forums of any sites, sales for my book rise dramatically. I thank everyone to no end for their support in its promoting. I’ll write again soon. 😀 _______|
