I’m trying something a bit different. Instead of running giveaways on Amazon etc. I’ve decided to serialise Blackfeather here on the blog. Other authors seem to do it to good effect and hopefully it will at least boost my readership and bring a new audience to the book. If all goes well, I might serialise Immortal afterwards and maybe even the next novel, Persephone Reborn.
I’ll post a new chapter every week. I’ve still got around eight weeks of my degree to do, but after that I’m hoping to start posting more regularly, updating you on the progress of Persephone and other things I think might interest you surrounding the world of my new characters and various other topics. And with luck (and determination) progress should be made – which brings me to my next experiment.
The eagle-eyed among you will have noticed the ‘Buy me a Coffee’ button over on the right. Like many other writers, artists, musicians etc. I find myself in a quandary. On the one hand we love what we do and want to share it freely with others, but in the real world, creating is still work, takes time, energy and effort, is often subject to piracy (I’ve had 148 notifications of my work being pirated this week alone), but on the other we still have bills etc. Not everyone is comfortable with it, but again, other authors have recommended it and as a soon to be starving writer (when the student loan runs out) I thought I’d give it a go.
All support is gratefully received, whether that’s following the blog, donating or buying my books or spreading the word to others. My goal, of course, is to become a full time writer and you can only do that with a steady income.
The first chapter will be posted tomorrow 🙂
