Want something to read over the holidays?

From now until 12th January, 2019, two of my eBooks are on sale at Smashwords. If you know someone who is looking for something to read over the holiday period, let them know or gift them one of my eBooks.

Rider, Book One in the Tracker Series, a fantasy novel, normally US$4.99 is on sale for US$0.99 at Smashwords.  Use the code AM92R at checkout to get the sale price.

Never admit to seeing ichur, the silvery residue of magic spells. Not if you want to stay under the radar of the Councillors of Convane.

Swift, a purebred tracker horse who can smell the smallest trace of ichur, can also remove the magic energy from any human or talisman.

Dallas, rider of Swift, knows how to create a spell without leaving residue, even if he is not a trained mage.

Neither Dallas or Swift admit to seeing and using the magic energy. If they did, Dallas would have his ability to see ichur removed, and Swift would be given to an approved mage by order of the council.

A new fantasy series including mages, dragons, tracker horses and more. On sale for US$0.99 until 12th January, 2019.

 

The Case of the Crop Duster Dog, a cosy mystery adventure, normally US$2.99 is on sale for US$0.99 at Smashwords. Use the code QS79W at checkout to get the sale price.

Working dogs are more than pets!

Mercy Connor, ex-Air Force cadet pilot, lives a quiet life on her cattle property west of Cunnamulla in Queensland, Australia, and takes the odd crop dusting job.

Returning from Brisbane, she picks up journalist Kenyon Smith, a stranded motorist on his way to her property. When she drives through the front gate she sees her dog Blue dead beside the track. Next moment her windscreen shatters. With Ken’s help, she deals with the attackers before she learns of her brother’s death. Suspecting the attack on her is related to her brother’s death, Mercy is determined to solve the mystery of who killed her dog and brother.

Buy The Case of the Crop Duster Dog and follow Mercy’s hunt for clues to solve this cosy mystery. On sale for US$0.99 until 12th January, 2019.

Technology Hiccups

It is already August and winter is almost over here on the east coast of Australia.

I have not written anything for the past few months, but have been busy, never the less. Tax forms done. Latest story in print as well as ebook formats. Working on a Holly Lisle Short Story course, and plotting short stories.

I finally set up a second laptop using Ubuntu and all free software, and connected to the internet, so I do not have to use my Windows laptop to connect to the internet. Continue reading

March activities in Indie Publishing

March flew past, and it is now April. I have been busy finishing and editing a novella which I think is an Adventure story. I will try some beta readers and see if they think the genre is “adventure” or not. 🙂 And work on the cover.

And start my next series. Which will be fun, I hope. 🙂

Not much Indie Publishing news except for the following: Continue reading

2018 Publishing Processes

Indie publishing seems to have settled into the new normal in 2017.

There are two ways, all in on Amazon, or wide. Over 70% of all ebook, print and audio sales are on Amazon. This leaves 30% sales elsewhere.

There are two main strategies with publishing, either “churn and scream” or “drip”. Continue reading

From 2009 to now, and Onwards.

I started this blog in April, 2009.

Why? One of my writing teachers told me to create a writing blog because I needed it. I think it was to build interest in my stories, but I don’t talk about the actual writing of my stories. I mean, who wants to hear that I write one sentence, then the next. And the next. That is boring.

I talk about my writing journey, the things I learn, the software that helps me, or other tools that I use to monitor all aspects of indie publishing. Continue reading

Ebook Bundles Podcast

Last post, I discussed one of my stories selected for an eBook bundle on Bundlerabbit.

Today, Joanna Penn had a podcast talk with Chuck Heintzelman, the creator of BundleRabbit. I think it is a good detailed discussion on bundling. Check it out here.

 

Also note, near the end of the talk, Chuck said if you sign up to BundleRabbit you can still get a free copy of The Author Guide to Ebook Bundling by Chuck Heintzelman. But he does not know for how long the ebook will be free on signup.
