Its been almost a month or since my last update and I have a few things to share.
Thanks to everyone who has download Skid The First Skidian Chronicle, and thanks especially to all those people who taken the time to let me know how much you have enjoyed reading it. I have noticed a spike in sales for the next book in the series, The Second Coming and I have reduced the price on that book to USD$0.99 on Amazon for the next week for anyone who wants a copy. I hope you enjoy these books enough to read the next two in the series, The Lifeboat and The Colonists.
Several months ago I created a Shopify shop to sell books to people who don’t want to purchase from the big players which is also seeing more traffic. I am using this site to sell hard copies to people who want a physical book and want to buy from me directly. I have been surprised by how many people still prefer a physical book to read. My bookshop is also a cheaper option for people to purchase hardcopies locally, as purchases from Amazon and other international stores are relatively expensive to ship to this part of the world
On Friday I picked up my first consignment of locally printed books, and I now have a about 140 odd books sitting in my office I need to sell. The Command Authority and I are going to start visiting local Independent book sellers and start promoting the series in earnest.
Now I have the books I will focus on organising a book signing session, we are still looking for a suitable venue. If I can’t locate a suitable location in the next few weeks, I will have to delay it until after the silly season is over because I will be focusing on my day job in December.
Finally, I am well underway with the fifth book in the series. I have set myself a publication target of January 2020, but progress is good at the moment so I might be able to bring that date forward.
