Welcome, Release Schedule

Hello, everyone!

Updated: 03/03/2017

This site is a collection of all fictional works that I will be finishing up. For more information please use the navigation menus above to get around. Links to the finalized published works are available as well as all currently in progress novels.

Expected pauses: Two children, full-time job – updates are irregular. I am still writing, I swear!

 

Current work in progress order:

  1. The Fiasco, In News – estimated release: June / July
  2. Prince in the Tower (Royal Scales #4) – estimated release: Oct/Nov
  3. Wayward Online: Tales – 1st release of 2018?
  4. Lawless Ink – 2nd release of 2018?
  5. Prince of Neverwas (Royal Scales #5) – 3rd release of 2018?
  6. Silk Bird Cage (Fragments of Aeon #1) – 4th release of 2018?

 

General series lengths:

  • The Fiasco is plotted at 3 books.
  • Royal Scales is plotted at 7-8 books
  • Wayward Online is plotted at 5 books
  • Fragments of Aeon is plotted at 5 books
  • Lawless Ink is plotted at 4 (huge) books

 

This doesn’t include other projects out there that may grab me. In short, provided sanity doesn’t run out – I plan on releasing three to four books a year, for a long time.

The latest release in the series Royal Scales is book 3 – Trials of the Chief is scheduled to publish on April 25th, 2017 and is available for pre-order at $.99 for a limited time only – through major book retailers, you can check the link here to visit your favorite store.

Synopsis:

Without his memories, Jay’s body holds power that is beyond his understanding. Slowly, as he revisits old haunts, his memory begins to return in vivid flashes, but he can’t make sense of the things he remembers. Each use of his abilities reveals something darker and more primal, building a need for release–a release that remains out of his reach as he can’t tap into this need and what form it should take.

The Hidden could help but they have plans of their own which require Jay to stay clueless.

Without full access to his memories Jay can’t…

The LitRPG Signed Book Giveaway

This will probably be shared once or twice more, but anyone interested in a signed copy of my main series – and a ton of others – can enter into this give away.

It closes at the end of the month. There’s 22 books in the giveaway  (that I counted).

 

 

In other news, anyone using Kindle Unlimited may want to check out Lion’s Quest, a series fresh to KU. The elves in this series make me laugh myself silly.

The Fiasco Draft, 22-26

Feels like forever since I’ve released new writing. Been torn between editing old stuff, working on an audio book for Continue Online, and recovering from physical pain.

Anyway, here.

I’ve got more typed out and am working on the April writing camp thingy – with the goal of finishing a shorter novel (60k or so) – we’ll see how that goes.

Going “wide”, permafree experiment, and ARC reader request (again)

3BK_promo

Hi all, Samantha here!

As you may (or may not) have noticed, the Royal Scales series went “wide” a few months back, what does “wide” mean? Well, it means the series is no longer available through the Kindle Unlimited program where it is required to be exclusively offered through Amazon. It is available at almost every book retailer except Google Play.

Why did we go wide? Because the series didn’t gain the same traction as Continue and I wanted to experiment with being more widely available plus having the option to make book 1 ‘permafree’ as a lead in to the other books in the series. While there are currently only two books out as of this posting, with book 3 releasing in April, I thought it would be a good time to go forward with the permafree book 1 and as such it is now available free! The link can be found here on the blog, or on the sidebar by clicking the cover for Once Lost Lords.

The following stats are from 2/20/2017-Today:

980 free books  – Amazon ~~ 12 free books – Smashwords ~~ 31 free books – Draft2Digital

So 3 weeks and 1,000+ books with minimal advertising/free advertising avenues.

New reviews? 0

I was hoping, more than anything, reviews would come from the free copies – maybe that’s naive or now an outdated strategy, perhaps it needs more time, but I promised Stephan if nothing came from being “wide” and permafree I would end the experiment. I’ll likely give it another month, maybe two… anyway, I thought sharing the current stats would be an interesting read.

We are still looking for some ARC readers for Trials of the Chief Royal Scales Book 3 with the intent of leaving an honest review, if you’re interested please email frustratedwriting AT gmail DOT com and I will happily provide an ePub or Mobi version. Also due to my mess up, Trials of the Chief is available in paperback format on Amazon, ARC readers can either wait until the eBook releases on April 25th or feel free to leave the review on the paperback version since they will eventually link.

PB

I also wanted to update about The Fiasco – I completed the ‘edits’ of book 1 (there’s 4 more chapters I think he’ll be posting to his WordPress soon?) the next step is for him to review/make changes to the comments I’ve left and then it’ll be shipped over to our editor in early April. We’re on track for a July release at this point, and if you missed it, Jeff Hays of Soundbooth Theater Live on Twitch.com read part of the first chapter of The Fiasco on 3/5/17 starts around 22:00 – Jeff then finishes the chapter on 3/12/17 – it reads very well and we are seriously considering getting the audio book done to release with the eBook/Print versions.

Oh, one last request, I promise! I need to know how readers feel about pre-ordering books, do you feel as though a discount is required if you’re pre-ordering in advance? A lot of books I see available for a special $0.99 pre-order and then they increase the price of the book to it’s normal price a few days after release. Does this work for you? Are you more likely to pre-order for  $.99 vs. $3.99?

As always, thank you for reading this far if you did! I hope to hear from you, please feel free to leave comments below 🙂
