I haven’t had any crochet to post for a little while because I’ve been so busy working on the final formatting for Drowned History. It’s still going to be coming out next Tuesday as planned, but some of the formatting for the print version was a little wonky and I’m still waiting on my proof. I had hoped to do a preorder but that doesn’t seem likely at this point so I’ll just keep in mind the timeline for the next one.
Speaking of the next one, I’m planning on releasing my book Only a Rogue Knows this summer! It was originally part of the Every Rogue’s Heart box set but I’m now allowed to sell it on its own, and I’m very excited. I’m planning on expanding some parts of it that I would have liked to write before and there will be a fantastic new cover, so even if you bought the box set there will be plenty for you to enjoy in the expanded version. I’m working on the new bits right now, and will send it to editing right away so I can get it formatted sooner than this one.
I suppose these little hiccups are all part of learning the ropes of being an indie author. Self-publishing offers an amazing amount of creative control, but it also comes with a bit of a learning curve. Hopefully I’ve done Drowned History justice and everything will go more smoothly next time. Eventually I’d like to buy a bundle of ISBN numbers and really print them under Frozen Flame Press, but that’s way out of my skillset for the moment. For now, I’m happy to let Createspace take care of all that while I work on increasing my skills.
Getting back to next week’s release, here’s a bit of important information: Drowned History will be released Tuesday, March 13th and will be $0.99 for the first two weeks, then go up to $2.99 after that. The paperback price will be $10.99, and I’ll be selling signed copies for the same price plus shipping. If you’d like me to reserve one for you, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get one out to you!
