The Aftermath


Sooo… Indie Publishing week ended yesterday night with map-making, uploading trailer and working on cover. And no web page. I decided that this blog will be enough for now. I already post daily, a web-page would be a duplicate. So I readjusted the blog (in case you didn’t notice) with all the details to be found:  book covers, book trailer, and maps – a link for the e-book that don’t really support JPG.If I google my (pen) name, my Facebook page comes first, then GoodReads, then blog posts (random), but the link to this blog is on both Facebook and GoodReads anyway, so I shouldn’t be too hard to find.

Lulu has sent the print copy (with temporary cover and map, but it will be only for me) and I’m waiting to see it, but April 1st I’ll upload Air on Smashwords – and as it’s a Friday, another Love-story with… post will be postponed (for a good reason). I’ll probably upload it also on Kindle, I’ve done it with Jessamine and it’s here, although very expensive! I put the same list price as Smashwords, so I don’t know why they charge more. So if you have a Kindle, buy it on Smashwords anyway! 😉 I did the double upload, as since January from Smashwords it hadn’t made it into Amazon, so I thought I’d accelerate the process…

I also asked my friend the map-maker for help in having the title coming out a little better, so here’s the new cover:

And the brand new map – rivers in black mean they’re borders, the others are not… And I cut the sea monster because he used a sheet too big for my scanner! 😉

Aaaand… the book trailer!

Now I better go check the guidelines, as I’ve been welcome among the GoodReads authors… It’s not over yet… 😀

  1. Nice trailer:) The title too is visible now. I hope your book finds a lot of new readers.

    I checked and the Kindle price is the same as the Smashwords price. It’s all good!

    I’m planning to upload my languishing novel to Kindle but need to know how to do it. How did you learn?

    • I sa 3.45$ on Kindle Amazon and it’s 0.99$ on Smasword, but if you say so… (0.70£ is more like the 0.99$ of SW) 🙂
      I saved the Word doc as HTML as suggested by them… or you can upload the Word doc on Smashwords and download the Kindle format, it’s probably easier! 😉

        Thanks Barb! I’ve been doing some research and am getting enthused! I think most of my novel will have to be rewritten, but that’s OK. It’s a long term project. I think I can manage to do the uploads OK. I will try the Smashwords way as you suggested.

        It’s definitely 0.99c on Kindle as well as Smashwords!

        By the way, I LOVE the cover of Air. WOW!! 🙂

        Woops, I mean 0.99$!! Not 0.99c (that would be way too cheap!)

      • well, it IS 99cents… it’s a novella! 😉 The novel will be a little more expensive… wordcount, you see? 🙂
        Don’t forget, if you need a beta-reader for the long-term project… you know where I am! 😀
        Happy writing!

  3. So cool! Is it just me or does the woman on the front cover look like Aishwarya Rai?

    Love the book trailer too but it stopped in the middle and I didn’t get to see the ending of it. I’ll try again tomorrow.

    • Yes, The Dancer is “Ash”… she is even called Aishwarya in the novel… and I told my friend to make the lady on the cover look like her, so she obviously succeeded! 😉
