I got my sales in from Kobo, BN, and Apple: Dude…I got the cash to commission full-page illustrations for The Femitokon Series Volume I. It’s currently selling as a novella without illustrations, but with the green to give it at least three illustration-pages, I can sell that bad boy as the OEL light novel it is!
Progress on illustrations for Suffocation:
There will be two full page illustrations in the Suffocation novella. These will update automatically for those who’ve purchased it already.
Suffocation: Femitokon Series Volume I is available over at Amazon, exclusively on Kindle Unlimited (that means its free to Prime subscribers) until Janaury 15, 2021. If you don’t have a Prime account, the novella costs $1.99. I didn’t make this decision lightly – but many years ago, back when Amazon’s 47 North sought new talent, they’d been willing to make a publishing offer on Femitokon.
My computer had crashed and my manuscripts became non-salvageable (collected episodes 1-8). Luckily my series bible was safe on the internet and this enabled me to rewrite those episode from scratch, but it took a LONG TIME. Since then, 47 North changed their submission policies, so I posted the series at Patreon, and then Gumroad. Now here we are – finally published!
None of this would be possible if it weren’t for my early subscribers and other patrons cool enough to digest those first-drafts. I hope you continue to support this series and my writing. Please know that I appreciate you all so much!
I set up a series page at Amazon for the Spring release of Tactical Pursuits. I wrote a more succinct synopsis for the series-page and hope that it works. After the Hanukkah holiday I’ll attempt some marketing and acquiring some genre reviews.
I’ll be silent running for the next few months as I work on Tactical Pursuits revisions. I’m lucky to have scored an editor like Thalia Sutton (her familiarity with light-novels made her the perfect person for the job) and her advice helped me grow as a writer. Pro editors are the best investment you can make as a self-publisher.
