#1

Came home from work today to find that The Witch is currently at #1 in the Top 100 Free lists for all of its categories on Amazon!

And in Fantasy Anthologies & Short Stories, it’s even ahead of Charles Dickens and Bram Stoker. O.o

Thanks to anyone who has downloaded it, and if you haven’t yet, now’s a good time!

Free book!

The Witch is free today! It’s a risk-free way to give Land of Winds a try (and Book 1 is on sale also, if you’d like to read more).

Luule is born with a speck of blue in her gray eyes, the vivid blue of magic. But magic is feared, and those who wield it shunned. Luule grows up fighting for acceptance in her village, her only encouragement that given by her loving mother. When her mother dies, Luule is left truly alone. Struggling to endure harsh winters, she works harder than ever…until a foreign army invades. With magic-wielding enemies bearing down on them, Luule must make hard decisions quickly not only to survive, but for the chance of winning a better life for herself. Come find out which way the Winds will blow…

(A short story in the Land of Winds series.)

A good reminder that sometimes stepping back and approaching a problem with fresh eyes is the easiest way to get it solved: a minor formatting issue with The Wizard of Suomen ebook back in October that I could not figure out only took a few minutes to solve today!

Pro tip: if you want your epub file to clear with no epubcheck errors, make sure you have the ” https:// ” bit in front of any web links you might have in your html file. Simple, but easy to overlook, as it turns out. -_-

I’m just double-checking a few things prior to promos for both the book and the short story, coming next week!

First Book Event!

20181006_102041

I had a good time at the Local Author Fair I attended yesterday, my first ever book event! I sold two print copies of The Wizard of Suomen (exactly as many as I was expecting/hoping for), handed out many bookmarks for the ebook which is on sale this week, and had a poster up for The Witch release.

It was fun to talk to people about the book, and to see what some other local authors are writing. I bought a beautifully illustrated book of Vietnamese fairy tales from one of the other authors! I think I might try having a table at a small sci-fi/fantasy convention in my area in the spring, and see how that goes as well.
