Sorry that it’s taken me so long to post on here. It’s been a crazy couple of months.
I want to give you a quick update on what I’ve been up to:
No, I have not published Ranger’s Oath. I know… I know… I said that I was going to over the summer. Sorry about that. I’ve decided to change my strategy, and my overall approach when it comes to publishing books. In an effort to make sure that my books do as well as possible, I plan on writing the entire “Arc of Radiance” series before publishing a single book. Why? Because of the nature of the business.
Self-publishing is an extremely competitive world, one that is over-saturated (especially in my genres) and rife with strong competitors. A new author needs every advantage he can get to stand out from the pack. Amazon tends to reward authors who can churn out books quickly (there’s this thing called the ’30-day Cliff’) by placing them higher in their search results, much like using SEO to rank higher in Google. Since I am not a particularly fast writer, I want to make sure I have the whole series done so I can publish them in quick succession – I plan on releasing one a month (roughly). This will ensure that my books are being promoted by Amazon for 5-6 months straight!
Right now, I plan on releasing the series in Spring 2018. Sorry! I know it’s a long ways away, but if you’re really that upset about it, send me an email and I’ll make you one of my beta readers 😊
This weekend, I plan on finishing Book 2, which is titled Bringers of Doom. After that, I plan on diving right into Book 3, which is tentatively titled War Echoes. Remember, this is a five book series, so if I keep up my normal pace, I should be finishing Book 5 around March/April of next year. Also, the Ranger’s Oath cover has been completed, but I am only showing it to my beta readers. So, if you want to see it, you’re going to have to email me to be added to the group.
There are a lot of exciting things going on, and I am excited to finally start getting my work out there for the world to see. Please, if you have any thoughts/questions, comment below or send me a message. I LOVE hearing from people.
As always, I am hard at work trying to bring these stories to life. I have a long backlog of books that I want to write, and hopefully one day I can make that my full-time job. Until then, I will continue doing my best to pump out stories as fast as possible.
Thanks for reading and supporting me!
