KDP Finally Worked

I am finally FINALLY (and I mean finally this time) happy to say that Book 2 of The Wanderer Trilogy is available for purchase in size 12 font that matches the format of Book 1. The Chapter font is the same Courier New that Purpose is, and the same single-spacing as the new version of Purpose that was just recently released. Breathing a sigh of relief is an understatement at this point, but everyone can now enjoy the fruits of my labor! πŸ™‚

So where do I go from here? I have been getting a lot of requests to do an audiobook version of Purpose and Preservation for people who dislike reading or do not have the time to sit down and read an entire novel. While I may wait until the release of Book 3, it is an option that I am exploring. My fiancΓ© and I are in the early process of purchasing our first home and would like to find some space to have an office to write and record audiobooks. That would be ideal, anyway. πŸ™‚

But for the time being, I’m taking a little bit of time off before starting Book 3: Prowess to come into it with a fresh mind. It won’t be but for a few weeks, but work will begin shortly! Thank you again to everyone who supports my work! The best thing you can do to help me build on my dream and keep me writing is by writing reviews on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other outlets where you purchase my books. This boosts my place among other writers and gives me a good handle on what you all are enjoying about my writing! Thank you again πŸ™‚

Writing Elation

Hi everyone!

I hope you are all doing well! I am happy to finally announce that Amazon has finally accepted the hard copy of Preservation! After numerous edits by the kind woman who formats my book covers, the sizing finally fits the print. I cannot describe how much elation I feel seeing the word “Live” next to my next novel.

Click here for a direct link to purchase Preservation. Amazon has both Hard Copies and eBooks available. The more condensed copies of Purpose are also available here at a lower price! And please, if you do me the kindness of purchasing and reading any of my books, reviews are greatly appreciated! Any feedback that I can take in future books makes me a both better writer and helps get my name out into the industry. One review from each book purchase can skyrocket my career as an author to help me realize my dream of being able to do this full time. And if that happens, it means more books for you, my amazing readers! πŸ™‚

Each and every person who supports my dream has a special place in my heart! Thank you so much for everything!

A Surprise for Your Patience

Happy evening to everyone! I am happy to finally announce that Preservation is in Hard Copy via Amazon within the next 72 hours (currently pending review). I will be posting the link on the Bookstore page as soon as it goes LIVE.

As with any craft, I am learning to format my books properly. While the cover formatting software has changed on Amazon since Purpose was released, I have spent a number of extra hours to try and make the 2nd book as close to the 1st as possible. Self-publishing and a tight budget really restrict options, so it isn’t the ‘perfect’ final draft that I always envision. My hopes and dreams of becoming financially stable as a full-time author will only be realized by continuing to write and release books. Everyone who supports me truly takes a place in my heart as each sale gets me one step closer to achieving my goal. I deeply thank you! πŸ™‚

As such, I have decided to reformat Purpose and re-release it in both eBook format and Paper Copy at a discounted price. I changed everything to ‘single-space’ with a space between each paragraph, so that has drastically reduced the amount of pages for each book. As long as the woman who formatted the cover isn’t terribly busy, you can expect it very soon! If you don’t already own a copy, get ready to purchase a cheaper version than the original edition.

Now that Book 2 is complete, you know what the next steps will be… writing Book 3! I am very excited to wrap everything up, bring everything together, and fill it will suspense and plot twists that will keep you on the edge of your seat! Once this is complete, I will be working on my next projects (a small book of short stories *possibly* or the beginning to the outline of a fantasy series).

Again, I appreciate your support from the bottom of my heart! Please check back for an update on Preservation‘s official release date along with a link on the Bookstore page.

Quick Update on Preservation

Good Morning All!

I wanted to give you a quick update on Preservation and its release. I started to transfer everything into Scrivener yesterday, hoping that it would only take a short time to get everything translated properly. However… before Scrivener, I have to copy stuff into Microsoft Word and then move it from there into Scrivener. As I try doing this, my computer (which had a paid version of Office on there) uninstalled Office and is now forcing me to pay yearly for something that was paid for a few years ago as an older version.

Needless to say, I am slightly frustrated at the whole idea of paying yearly for software that I simply use at the very end of my writing process. So I boycotted paying $100/year for Microsoft Office and decided to type everything out verbatim onto Scrivener. So, it means that I will be delayed a few days on releasing Book Two of The Wanderer Trilogy. Copyright is already in progress, so at least that’s some good news! πŸ™‚

I’m hoping to get the eBook copies uploaded later this week as those do not require additional formatting. The hard copy on Amazon should be available within the next week or two. Thank you all so much for bearing with me if you are eagerly waiting my newest book!
