On paperback Hidden Fire
Timothy Bateson is a sci-fi and fantasy author originally from the UK but now transplanted to the US. He’s hosting an ‘Author Spotlight’ post about me today. To coincide with this event I’ve put Hidden Fire on sale for 99p for the Kindle book. If you haven’t read it already take a peek today while it’s half price.
Today’s the day! Hidden Fire is now available as a Kindle ebook and a paperback book from Amazon. From mid-September the ebook should be available in other formats and from other distributors too, with the help of Smashwords.
The launch at the library was good. I arrived early and the library assistant helped me get set up. My cousin Dominic is a photographer and he’s taken some photos of today’s event. His photography has won competitions, and he sometimes helps make films too. Check out his Facebook page DJC Photography.
I took ten books with me to the library, some had already been spoken for, like the three the library ordered, and the ones for my mum and grandmother. Of the five left, I actually sold three of them to people who weren’t friends and family. A cousin and a friend from my allotment days bought the other two.
I’m very happy that it went so well and that the books are now available in the library for borrowers. I checked my sales, there were the 5 pre-orders that have been there since I announced the cook was on pre-order, and an unexpected sale from the US. Thanks to whoever that was, I hope you enjoy it.
Today is also my 34th birthday, I am having a wonderful day. It is the first time in weeks that I haven’t felt awful. I’m tired and peopled out, so the next few days will involve nothing much more than napping and reading.
I’ve been fiddling around with CreateSpace and worked out that I have an eStore. Yes, I know, shocking that it’s taken me a month to work this stuff out. That it because I’m not great with technology, and the having to move stuff has been messing with my critical faculties.
So, if you want to buy the book direct, without having to go through Amazon and give the author a little bit of extra cash, order here
I will be adding the link to the book page too, so it’s easy to find later.
A box of books turned up this afternoon. My books, ten of them. A lot sooner than I expected. I’ve sold four already, so the rest are for the book launch. I’m considering ordering more, but I haven’t got enough money yet.
It’s rather exciting and i like the feel of the books. I’ll probably be making some changes for the next book, smaller text probably.
In other news, I’m working on the short story that goes with this novel. It might become a novella at the rate I’m going 😀
