It Starts With One…

Back in November, I blogged about giving “The Other Slipper” some company in the wonderful world of ebooks in the form of another novel I’ve written called “The Altercation of Vira” (see Two Is Company). The more observant readers might have noticed that the My Books…So Far tab on my sidebar has been updated within the last few months but not with said novel (feel free to check out the novella listed there, if you’re interested in YA fiction). 

What I’ve decided to do is post the prologue and first 3 chapters of Vira on this blog so that readers can sample the book before it hits retail stores.

Two Is Company

First of all, I’d like to thank everyone who has supported and/or bought my e-book The Other Slipper. I couldn’t have done it without you guys. It took a while for me to get into the whole self-promotion mindset but I’m slowly getting there. One of the resounding pieces of advice I’ve come across during my research is that with e-books, more is better when it comes to how many books an author has available. As long as the work published is interesting and of high quality, there is no need to wait months or years to release books as is done in the traditional publishing world. This is because there is no debate about which book shop will stock your book or how much shelf space the product takes up etc. E-books will always be digitally available (well, as long as the internet and e-book readers exist) and so can always be stumbled upon by a multitude of readers.

Bearing this in mind I’ve decided to give The Other Slipper a companion on the shelf. It looks a little lonely sitting out there by itself so I’ve been editing another fantasy fiction novel I wrote called The Altercation of Vira. I wrote this years before The Other Slipper and I know some people will be happy to finally see it out there (you know yourselves) so I’m even more excited about publishing this than the last one.

Again, I’d love to get people’s opinions on the front cover. Continue reading
