Wow, I can’t believe it’s been nearly a month since my last post. When I first started this blog four years ago I made it a point to post writing related articles every other day. And I did for years. Just goes to show how quickly time passes when you’re involved in a project.
What project you may ask?
As I wrote in my last post I have been working feverishly re-writing my three book middle grade sci/fi series. I wrote the original books nearly fifteen years ago. This series is what landed me my NY agent and a slew of close call sales and heavy interest by major publishers. But I must say that fifteen years of writing experience since then has sharpened my skills and storytelling abilities.
Now, the series is tight, exciting, addictive, and exotic. Though each book in the series is a stand-alone story all three books are interrelated and have some surprising, jaw-dropping cross-references. I am very proud of what the series has become and very excited to re-release it upon the world. I have an intense marketing strategy planned.
Each book will be available separately and I am also producing a three-book series bundle. The books will be $0.99 and the bundle will be $1.79. Here’s the kicker. I am going to offer SILENT INVASION, the first book in the series for free when the series first comes out. This free promotion is going to be heavily marketed. I believe readers will love the book so much that they will purchase the others in the series perhaps sparking the need for a fourth book or even a fifth to be written. All this should happen by the beginning of April.
My latest release, AS IT IS IN HEAVEN has enjoyed modest sales and will hopefully gain new life when my promotional blitz for that one starts in May. My other release this year, THE END TIME is slowly gaining momentum despite almost no promotion or marketing on my part whatsoever. Readers really seem to enjoy the story and are asking when book #2 of the series will be released. Soon, I tell them… soon.
So you can understand now the reason why I have somewhat neglected this blog for the last few weeks. It’s not that I don’t love posting the writing life to my readership it’s that I’ve just been so darn busy.
