The second in our series of posts looking at the authors who use The Book Reality Experience. This time it’s the turn of Ray Glickman, a traditionally published author who decided to choose the independent path for the release of his second novel, the dark and foreboding, frenzship.
Ray is a business leader, presenter, social media commentator and author. A previous CEO of Fremantle Council he holds Master’s degree in philosophy, psychology, business and social work and has an extensive background in senior management.
His first novel, Reality, published by the Fremantle Press in 2014, is a darkly entertaining thriller about social manipulation in the twenty-first century and was shortlisted for the Western Australian Premier Book Awards.
Ray decided he wanted more control over his author’s journey and so, after sharing a platform with Ian Andrew at the Margaret River Readers and Writers Festival, he decided to use the Book Reality Experience to facilitate the publishing of his second novel, frenzship. A fascinating insight into the world of social media and what might happen if it progressed to the point of choosing your friends for you. The official launch of the novel is in Fremantle, WA on the 24th July 2017. Click here for more details.
Now running his own management consulting business, ‘From Left Field’, Ray co-hosted with the Book Reality Experience, the inaugural “Democratisation of Publishing’ workshop at the Perth International Writers Festival. He is also the Chair of writingWA, the peak body for writers and readers, and is a Fellow of both the Australian Institute of Management and the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
Alongside those many activities, Ray is also working on his next novel.
