So I have been blogging at Asteroth’s Domain since what? 2005! I started it when Inner Journeys: Explorations of the Soul was published. Like all first time authors, I had half expected the book to sell, if not in the thousands then certainly in the many hundreds. ‘Build it and they will come’ was my mantra…. These days I know a lot more about publishing books (especially in rather strange and suspicious genres!) and much more about blogging. At one time, I think I had 8 blogs on the go. One even had hundreds of visitors a day! Then, well, I got busy, stopped posting and things declined. These days, I have more books out and far fewer blogs.
So why would I build another blog? (this one!).
Well, it struck me that nowhere do I have an online presence that brings together all the incoherent strands of stuff that make up the me. You know, there is the poetry (some of it isn’t too bad… even if I say so myself), there is the interest in the Czech Republic, there is the small ExPats group I co-built with a colleague in Brno, there are my business books on exciting and interesting topics like ETRM software yes, and Hedge Funds…. everyone loves a hedge fund! There are my weird occult books and now, yes, a novel! But how to pull it all together with some clever marketing statement and coherent brand? Problematic huh?
Well, it says “Dr. Gary (G.) Michael Vasey writes extensively across a number of disparate areas in which he has a passionate interest.” on my Amazon authors page and that’s probably not a bad description. Or maybe we could just say the Wacky World of Dr. Vasey?
Whatever. It doesn’t matter. From now on, this site will be used to pull everything together – whatever the everything turns out to be. Most certainly it will be a bunch of new books because I am addicted to writing and publishing books. We will see won’t we…….
