Finally, readers have copies of Flames of Rebellion on their devices and in their hands.
First of all – I love the cover designed by Mars Dorian and I’m already excited to see what he will be able to do with the rest of the books in the trilogy. The colours really pop and it’s worth buying the paperback for the cover alone!
Secondly, I just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who has bought a copy of the book. It shot up into the top 200 on Amazon for Epic Fantasy novels and that just blows my mind! Hopefully the good sales will continue once the reviews start to come in through drips and drabs. Self-published authors survive on reviews and I’d appreciate it so much is readers take the time to leave a review on Amazon and Goodreads.
I’m still busy with the marketing side of things. Books don’t sell themselves no matter how good they may be. I’m finalising the printing stage of the hardback edition of Flames of Rebellion and the audiobook for the short stories collection A Long Way From Home should be ready by the end of the month! I’m also finding the time to write the sequel to FoR which I’m really getting into now as the characters drag me in directions and down chaotic paths I didn’t expect. The sequel is pencilled in for publication next August as long as I can finish it in time and have it edited. Hopefully I can avoid the lengthy delays that hamper George R R Martin and Patrick Rothfuss’ amazing work.
That’s pretty much it really. Exciting times! Thanks again for all the support and I hope you enjoy reading about the strange characters and story as much as I have when writing them.
Speak to you all soon.
Embrace the Chaos.
