Book Signing – C.A.Milson

I don’t often do book signings. Mainly because I get as nervous s a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs 🙂 So you can imagine how nervous I felt leading up to my book signing yesterday.

Nerves – public appearances. For a moment I had the image of my first public appearance as an author. It was 2009, in Samara, Russia. When I gave a talk to a room full of students. Needless to say, that first time bombed in an epic way, and that one though came back to haunt me yesterday. 😦

Thankfully, those nerves hit the highway after a good friend gave me a pep talk, and away I went 🙂

The signing in itself was pretty cool. Joining me was the antagonist of The Chosen Series, Jamiesonn (played by Scott Reid), the ASJ Publishing street team (Zara and Rochelle), and fellow author Danielle M. Maistry.

The Worlds First Full Virtual Reality Book (VR Book) Experience



The First Virtual Reality Book

Melbourne, Australia – September 22 2015: ASJ Publishing have just released the first virtual reality book for Oculus Rift. The book will offer readers a visually immersive reading experience.

mAccording to the CEO of Sega, Mike Hayes, the virtual reality industry will be worth a staggering $6 billion within the next two years. The majority of this will be attributed to the Oculus Rift device, which has had drastic improvements to its functionality since it was initially announced in 2012. Different uses are constantly being created for the device, which is bound to change the way people experience art and entertainment.


With several virtual reality games and movies already available for people to enjoy, it is easy to see that many industries have already accepted the Oculus Rift as the device of the future. Just last week the virtual reality television show Sleepy Hollow won an Emmy award, which will certainly encourage the television industry to produce more shows of the like.

Whether it is stepping into their favorite game, watching an immersive movie, experiencing destinations around the world or spending time with friends, the Oculus Rift offers users a unique experience. The Melbourne-based publishing house ASJ Publishing believes that not only will virtual reality change the way people experience art and entertainment, but it can also change the way people read.

We are stepping outside the limitations of a traditional book.” explains Chris Jackson, the founder of ASJ Publishing. “Imagine being able to visually immerse yourself into a book. For instance, you could be reading a book of a woman walking through a forest and be entirely surrounded by detailed foliage and staggeringly tall trees. As you continue reading, the breeze will come through the trees and blow the leaves around you. The content of the scene will set the mood of the story. This is unlike anything you have ever experienced while reading a book.

ASJ Publishing have just released the first virtual reality book for Oculus. Written by Ken Maxon and developed by Kevin Gulling, the book is a poetry piece titled“A Chapter Finished, A Page Turned, the Sunset will Come Back.” It was initially published by ASJ in 2012 and the company has decided to use it as their first virtual reality book due to its relaxing tone and atmosphere. While reading the book on a virtual reality device, readers will experience a “book reading simulation” whilst on an island. They will be sitting in the sand, under a palm tree and be able to watch the waves roll in and the birds flying above.

As the popularity of virtual reality continues during the near future, ASJ Publishing hopes to release many more virtual reality books. To find out more information visit
