Brothers of the Curled Isles
« on: February 11, 2015, 09:50:15 PM »
So I wrote a book for Nanowrimo this year, and after some refinement and editing, it's now fit for public consumption.

It's a fun and relatively light fantasy, where three princes and their cousin have to save their kingdom after they're each tossed to some far corner of it, alone and injured. I know it probably sounds kind of cliche when I put it like that, but give it a shot, you might like it. Available right now in soft cover and pdf, working on getting it available in ebook formats.

Ebook is up on the Kindle store.

So I went ahead and wrote another one, "Spectres in the Dark," a sequel to last year's book. Like the first, it's available as an ebook and paperback.

Could you possibly open up development forum for public viewing?
Im not absolutely sure why you have that protected in the first place.

What happened was I put up the original link a little too hastily -- there were mistakes with the page numbers in the first draft. Unfortunately, while Amazon lets you just update the ebook and considers it the same product, with Blurb, updating it means essentially launching it from go, and the second edition therefore has a different ISBN. The old link that was up was for the edition with the errors, which is no longer for sale. The new link is for the corrected one.

As for the prices, I think blurb's charges are based at least partly on page number (which is why my first book had a slightly higher price than the second, before I discounted it), while Amazon's is more of a flat price.

So at the risk of zombie posting, I've just slashed my prices for the Kindle editions -- they're both now available for only $2.99.
