Now on Google Play!

In my transition to getting all my books with all the retailers, I have conquered Google Play. For a look at all of my books now available there, click here. I will be loading individual links into the website today.

A Changed World series is still exclusive to Amazon through mid-January. As soon as the term runs out on all the books, I will be loading them into other retailers. Which will be just in time for the release of book 4 - Lessons Learned - which is coming out on January 18th.

This year has been a peculiar one with a lot of writing and only 1 book published. That leaves me with a lot of work in the hopper. I hope to get at least 3 books published next year, but I won't make promises. Sometimes life just gets in the way.

Maps and Things

I finally put together a map for A Changed World. It's nothing fancy, but it does have all the important bits on it. It is on my website under A Changed World Extras. I also explain the new currency that they are using. There will be more coming in the Extras category.

For Transmutation, I put a list of Houses in the Extras. I'll start working on a map of the Four Rings soon.

I have a map in the works for Lands of Haroon. It needs a few finishing touches before I can post it.

The rough draft for book 4 in A Changed World is chugging along towards a release date of January 18th. The title will be Lessons Learned. Alex Storer is working on another wonderful cover for me.

And that's the latest. Now back to work.

The Dreaded Typo

It wasn't so much a typo as it was the entirely wrong word.

When I set up Charade to publish on Amazon, I put the wrong word in the series name. Sheesh. Instead of Transmutation, I put Transformation. And off it went, book 2 in a series that didn't exist. I didn't even notice until a friend alerted me. (Thanks, Alex!) I scurried out there to change it, but most of the promos for book 1 had already occurred. Argh.

Hmmm. I wonder if that hurt the sales at all? (Where's that satirical emoji?)

I was wondering why the "Books in the Series" didn't pop up on the product page. Sigh.

Live and learn, I suppose. This book has had its issues. I don't know why it's been so hard to get this one out the gate. I'm a little disappointed with how poorly this series is doing. Maybe I just need to wait until book 3 is out. Or I have to get a little more imaginative with my marketing.

Ah, the ever changing marketing game. I tried the same system that worked so well on the release of Gleanings. Crickets. I guess it's a different audience. Just because I read both genres doesn't mean readers of one series will cross over to the other.

There is always something new to learn.
