Almost six months have passed since my launch into the world of indie publishing with Desiccation. Have I enjoyed the experience? Yes and No. It has been a huge learning curve and there are things I wish I’d known before.
One tip, to those thinking of going down the same route as me, trial and error learning is all very well, but it’s best not to obsess over your Amazon stats on a daily basis if you’re not to give yourself a nervous breakdown. It’s better to focus on something less volatile and more positive, such as the amazing amount of publishing knowledge you’ve accrued along the way that you can apply to your next project and retrospectively to your first novel when you have your second one out there. But more about that over the next few months.
So here’s my latest book description for Desiccation. This is the one I’ll keep (“Phew, at long last,” I hear you all say!).
Janet Beckett is a science scholarship girl who believes there’s a rational explanation for all paranormal phenomena.
There is, if you happen to meet a know-it-all hippie pixie who lives in a dimensional transcendental toadstool.
Samantha Hamilton-Brown thinks she’s Queen of the Universe and can do as she pleases in her role as new head girl of Toffdene boarding school.
She can, until aliens cut her reign short and screw with the minds of almost every student and teacher in the establishment.
Joe Buckell is leader of a delinquent mod gang and fancies getting his end away with some hoity-toity daughters of the élite.
He does, but not in the way he hopes.
When desiccation threatens, you’ll do anything to survive.
This week there’s a Kindle Countdown Deal that runs from today until 27th May, with Desiccation for sale on Amazon (UK) and Amazon (US) at the discounted price of £0.99 and $1.43 respectively.
I’m always a bit shy in coming forward, but I’ve got to learn the art of more proactive marketing. What’s the saying, “If you don’t ask you don’t get”? Or “What is there to lose? The worst that can happen is for people to say no”.
So here goes…
- If you haven’t already read my book, please buy the Kindle version of my book while it’s going cheap.
