Sunday 4th March is the start of:
The Smashwords Ninth Annual Read an Ebook Week.
For the whole week, thousands of self-published books will be available in the sale.
All of my books are included in the sale and will be available at half price.
I had intended to publish The Bakarian Rebellion on or near the 2nd February, however, it will now be published on Sunday the 18th February, and will be available for Pre-order from Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, Kobo and Apple iBooks.
After a long, cold, wet December troubled by flu, I now have a cover for The Bakarian Rebellion. I have kept it simple, and will, after one more read through, be publishing the book on or near the 2nd February through Smashwords and Amazon.
I am making good progress in the editing and reviewing of the first book in my Fantasy series, The Chronicles of Ferantiana Volume 1, The Sorcerers of Argorilium, despite having focused most of my time on The Bakarian Rebellion, and writing the first draft of Running With the Tiger. How much time I spend on each project depends on the time of day or week (when not in work), whether I have had a mentally demanding day on the computer in work, and how tired or inspired I am.
Having completed the final book in the Science Fiction series ‘The Guardians’ in 2016, and after more than a year’s break from writing, I have turned my attention to the novel I drafted in 2015, ‘The Bakarian Rebellion’. The story is now complete, but requires the designing of a cover.
I am planning to publish this novel as an ebook in December 2017, pending a satisfactory design for the cover.
The final book in the Series ‘The Guardians’, book 5, Grand Master, has finally been published on Smashwords. It should be available through many other on-line retailers following approval and acceptance into Smashwords Premium catalogue.
The Guardians Book 1: Path to Vengeance underwent another thorough proofing recently, a process undertaken after discovering Edition 3 that had been uploaded previously was not the final proofed version prepared for publishing. Edition 4 also has a revised cover.
Until further notice, all of my currently published books will be available Free on Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, Apple and many other retail sites, but will not be available from Amazon.
The Guardians Book 5, which I have decided, after much deliberation, to entitle ‘Grand Master’ draws together events occurring around the galaxy wherein ‘The Guardians’ series is set, and sets the scene for the story’s conclusion.
Some of the characters and scenes that were introduced in book 4, ‘Storm Conjurer’, may appear to be a digression from the main story-line, however, they are integral to the unwinding and final conclusion of the prophecy, which will be made clear in this book.
I have completed re-writing ‘Grand Master’, and am in the process of undertaking the final proofing and polishing. As with book 4, this has taken far longer than expected, with added pressure from uncertainty in my full time employment. I am hoping to publish this, the final book in the series, on or around the 31st March, pending the production of the cover.
