FREEBIE MONTH IS FINI!

LAST DAY FOR THE LAST FREE EBOOK

If you didn't get your free copies of my ebooks while I was offering them, I'm sure you can locate pirated versions many places on the Internet. I get Google notices all the time about where they are available. I used to send out cease-and-desist letters, but it didn't stop anybody as far as I could tell. So, that's all folks!

The Compleat and True History of the Witches of Galdorheim


Tuesday, August 20, 2019

Now on Amazon

The only way to put a book on Amazon from Smashwords is when you have earned $2000 in sales (dollars, not Krone) through Smashwords via the distributor that just take the book and hope for the best.

So, you gotta me again Amazon. Fortunately, my files for Smashwords tucked nicely into KDP with only removing the reference to Smashwords (which SW requires). So, presenting ASIN B07WSH63N7 (drum roll please):



In a few days, I'll run either a five-day for free or countdown deal. It's on KDP, but as soon as I've used that pitiful marketing technique I'm unchecking that KDP renewal box. It just has not been worth the trouble. It's certainly not worth the trouble on this compilation of the four books and one short story which is all she (meaning me) wrote.

New Cover for Blood Ties Tested

Since Blood Ties Tested is really Book 4 of the Witches of Galdorheim series, I decided to add that to the cover. While it isn't a true sequel to the other three volumes in that it continues with the story of Katrina the teen witch, it is definitely part of the Galdorheim world, following what happens to Kat's favorite smart-aleck little brother, Rune.

Since all the books are now available through Smashwords as well as Amazon, it was a good time to release the revamped (that's a pun, by the way) cover. I also plan to dump the Box Set (with the first three books and a short story) and add BTT to the bunch to make the "Compleat and True History of the Witches of Galdorheim." What do you think? Do you like that title? Also, I'm working on a cover for it which will include all the covers, including little story, Spellslinger.

BLOOD TIES TESTED (Amazon Kindle and Smashwords All Formats)
Unfortunate events lead a half vampire boy into indulging his vampire side, leaving him with regret and sadness. Can dear old Dad help him forgive himself?

Following the events in the series Witches of Galdorheim, this additional tale relates what happens to Katrina the Witch's younger brother, Rune. 

Half vampire and half warlock, he faces life with a wisecrack and some powerful magic. Whatever happens, he does not want to be a vampire like his father. Unfortunate events lead him to fatally call on his vampire half. This failure leaves him in anguish. 

How can he assuage the guilt he feels? His mother thinks he needs to visit dead old dad, a vampire residing in the Tatras Mountains of Slovakia.

No More Wasting Time

No more sales like the one I'm running now for 99 cents each of Setara's Genie and Faizah's Destiny. No more giveaways, no more countdowns, no more sitting in the corner with a tin cup.

Nevertheless, this latest experiment in the exotic and hell-created world of marketing continues to disappoint. There really is no point to marketing if I can't find any pom-poms that work.

I will be setting my last, final, never look at them again prices on all my books on Amazon tomorrow since I promised. Take 'em or leave 'em. I'm really past caring since I know I have good books, but it's completely clear that the promoters sell books, not the authors. All of the books will be filtering off KU/KOLL and into the winds of Smashwords distribution.

It's been a year since I released my last book. I wrote it only because a few friends who enjoyed the Witches of Galdorheim series wanted to know what happened to Rune after Kat goes off to University in Edinburgh. If you'd read the books, you'd know what that means.

Many thanks to Dawn for the beautiful promo shots and for trying so hard to help independent authors. It's a tough job when so few do anything in return for Dawn's hard work.
