My first novel, Parallel, is now available from Smashwords in it’s complete form. AND IT’S FREE. This is to coincide with the reprice to free on Amazon.
The Smashwords release means that it will soon be available from Apple, Kobo, Barnes and Noble, and pretty much anywhere.
Now since it became free on Amazon, the novel has been moving along quite nicely, though I am still looking for more reviews.
As an unknown author I have chosen the path of releasing the first book for free to get some exposure, something that is harder than I realized when I first embarked on this self publication exercise. Whether this will translate into future sales remains to be seen but I remain optimistic.
The second book, The Immortal Darkness is coming along, being written in the gaps between life and responsibility. I’m hoping to have it ready by August-September, and I seem to be on track for that deadline.
In the mean time, I am utilizing social media, having now set up an author page on Facebook.
This page contains a few extras relating to the series: A Map, Glossary and the like. This will be updated at irregular intervals as more things are produced.
So all in all it’s a happening thing. What the final outcome will be is anybodies guess, but hopefully this blog at least will give an insight into the shady world of self publication.
