I fought with WordPress’ formatting in the current theme (Twenty Eleven), so that I could post the Table of Contents and the beginning of Pride’s Children: NETHERWORLD.
It is possible to read this scene (though it might make a bit more sense otherwise) without having read PURGATORY; there are no major spoilers.
I would still recommend reading the first book first, especially since it’s 0.99* (and worldwide equivalents) in ebook until January 20, 2022, but I’m not the reading police, and each book stands alone reasonably well.
Plus you can see my writing style.
And have a bit more of Andrew’s snark.
And I don’t have Book #2 finished yet, and y’all know I’m slow if well-intentioned.
It will remind previous readers of the beginning of Book #1 – as we’re back on Night Talk with Dana the shark.
Watch the NETHERWORLD tab – under construction.
*An easy way to keep a writer motivated, and now an inexpensive stocking stuffer.
Also necessary for writers who are temporarily still bogged down in the minutiae of moving, is encouragement.
Until further notice – until I’m enough settled to finish NETHERWORLD, the second book in the Pride’s Children trilogy – if you have someone to whom you would recommend it, now is the time to send them a gift email for Pride’s Children:PURGATORY – for a buck.
It couldn’t possibly hurt.
Nor could it possibly hurt to remind them that reviews are also a very good thing readers do for writers.
Summer reading sale until June 30 – Kindle Countdown Deal US & UK. 0.99!
For new followers and readers – and I’m still looking for reviewers (contact me for electronic Review Copies). Please recommend me to your reading friends.
Pride’s Children is up to 20 reviews now on Amazon.com
Do yourself a favor – if at all doubtful, check out the negative as well as the positive reviews; no book is for everyone, and I’d rather you not be disappointed.
I’m up to my ears in writing Book 2 at the same time as I’m trying to do some promotion for Book 1; if anything, I’m even busier than when I was writing and then publishing.
THE COUNTDOWNS ARE HERE! GRAB PRIDE’S CHILDREN AT DISCOUNT PRICE!
I am delighted to announce that Pride’s Children: PURGATORY is available in the US* and UK* right NOW – on a Kindle Countdown Deal.
Amazon US and Amazon UK are live (I checked). Please tell anyone you think might like Pride’s Children – and I hope they will also SIGN UP on the right hand side – scroll down -TO Follow this blog** so you get news of further sales and advance warning for Book 2, Pride’s Children: NETHERWORLD.
My official motto is now: “I’m working on it.”
I am; I am so close to the Book 2 revision I can taste it. Just let me get this sale started… Why? Because you can only run one KCD in each 90-day period you are signed up for KDP Select (Kindle Digital Publishing Select), and the price has to remain fixed for 30 days before and 14 days after the sale (the 30-day + sale (up to 7 days) + 14-day periods all have to be within that 90-day period), and on some days my brain refuses to do math. Fortunately, Amazon Kindle’s little pop-ups guide you through setting up the sales, and I think they are a wonderful tool to get more readers.
*I know the Kindle Countdowns don’t reach other countries – I believe Amazon is working on it; some country’s protectionist laws make it not possible there. BUT I will be having a general sale – 5 days at 0.99 everywhere at the end of April (will let everyone know when that happens), so if you can’t get to this deal, there will be one VERY soon.
**Wordpress changed a bunch of things to make things ‘better’; I will master them as soon as I can (I do change slowly, especially when my time goes to writing). I’m sure the improvements will make things easier once I understand them – they usually do – but right now I’m suspended between two worlds and the brain refuses the jumps.
Please tell one and all we are on sale!
The details for the Kindle Countdown Deal are here. Also, UK.
Suitable for gifts.
The sale (if I did this right) goes up to midnight on Dec. 21, Pacific Time. If you want to leave it to the very last minute…
Or you can go directly to the Amazon page for the ebook version of PURGATORY, and the above box, updated, will be to your upper right.
Remember – the sale applies only to Kindle.
Thanks for telling your friends
The very best thing you can do for a writer you want to encourage to produce more work, is to recommend their existing work – word of mouth is THE most powerful form of advertising ever discovered.
AFTER that come sales and reviews (don’t be shy – post on review writing).
The three make or break a book.
Word to the wise.
