A World Forsaken – First Half to Betas

Posted by:

If I get a few thousand more words in today, the first half of A World Forsaken should be going to the beta readers. They’ve helped me through the entire series catching problems and proofreading, along with giving critiques of the storyline. I’m going to go ahead and send them about the first half of the book so we can get started on the process — there will be less work to do closer to publication, and we can hit ...

Work Continues on A World Forsaken

Posted by:

Work continues, slowly but surely, on A World Forsaken, the conclusion of The Survivor Chronicles series. The farther into the series I go, the longer I find it takes to write the books, but I’m trying to make this one the best one yet. We’ll likely surpass the August release I had planned due to another book needing to make it to my editor, but I’m continuing work on the book and hope to have to ready to go by ...

The Omnibus Cometh

Posted by:

I am in the process of releasing an omnibus edition of The Survivor Chronicles released so far. It is the compilation of the first three books of the series in one eBook. That way, people who haven’t read the books yet have a chance to catch up before the last one is released around the end of September. It also comes with a slightly reduced price tag, making The Dying Times free when all three are purchased at the same ...

Falling Off the Shelf

Posted by:

Due to some sort of Amazon glitch, The Dying Times has “fallen off” the virtual shelf at that retailer. I can only say that saying it has been a stressful time since this happened is an understatement.

I’ve been working with Amazon’s KDP service to get the title reinstated, but it’s not back yet. The paperback editions of both books are still available, and the Kindle version of the second book is still up. Hopefully, it will be resolved quickly and ...

Sales Approaching 300, over 200 sold in December

Posted by:

I just wanted to make a post regarding sales for December, and, of course, I wanted to thank everyone who has purchased.  I certainly hope you enjoy the book!

This little hobby of mine is becoming a great source of additional income, it would seem.  I’m far off from making this a full-time job, of course, but the little extra boost to my income should help ease the tension at home and pay a few bills.  That’s all I really expected ...

Kickstarter Project Success and Other News

Posted by:

The Kickstarter Project has succeeded.  Thanks to all the pledges and support over these long weeks!  There were a couple of times in the project that I didn’t think we were going to make it, but I’m so glad that we did!  It reached the goal, so it’s time for a little saving and scrimping on my end to save up the rest for the advertising!

All of the pledges should be receiving the electronic version of the ...

The Dying Times Runs for a Month

Posted by:

The Dying Times: Nadene’s Story has been out for a month (as of yesterday).  My, my, does time fly!  This article is to look at the sales of the book with little to no advertising whatsoever.  With the Kickstarter project 7 days out from fulfillment, we will see some real advertising effort in January and beyond, but this article focuses on the data we do have based solely on publicity and social networking efforts.  To make it even better, I’ve ...
