Fertile ground

Fertile ground. – From Amber’s blog, about an unexpected twist in her revision of “Initiation” thanks to some peer feedback from Sam.

You may recall I mentioned my plan to clean up “Initiation” and release it on Kindle as a 99 cent download. Well, there’s a kink in the plans, but it’s awesome.

Money meet mouth

Money meet mouth.

A post from Amber’s blog, Midnight Tales, but regarding the publishing and selling experience of The Trident of Merrow so far.

It’s a really real book!

The proof arrived yesterday and it’s gorgeous! Check out the pictures on the Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Trident-of-Merrow-by-Kristopher-Lewis-and-Amber-Marshall/168339719890789

Some people say that print on demand books they’ve seen through CreateSpace look unprofessional. I think this one looks pretty damn good. It was so exciting to finally hold it, turn it over in my hands, flip the pages. Years of effort and there’s finally a book to put on the shelf, and say, “I wrote this. We wrote this and it’s real and this is really happening.”

As it is a proof, of course there are some errors to correct before we can put it up for sale, mostly a few formatting issues. I’ll be uploading a corrected file within a few days. Once that’s approved (we probably have to order and wait for another proof to arrive to make sure the changes work) we can put it up for sale. 🙂

I’m impatient; I want to just hit “approve” now and get this thing out there! But Kris and I want to make sure that we have the best possible product available, so it will take some time. Thank you for being patient. You won’t regret it.

Proof is on the way!

I’m sorry I haven’t posted in awhile! I’ve been updating on Twitter but I should keep up with the blog also.

Kris and I have set up The Trident of Merrow on Amazon’s Createspace program so we can begin selling paperbacks. It’s not available for sale just yet; we’ve ordered the proof and it’s en route. Once we look it over and make sure it’s all right, we’ll give them the go-ahead to make it available. When it is, I’ll let you all know.

It’ll be exciting to have an actual book to hold in our hands!

Monday sales report

6 sales for the month of May! 🙂

You know, the next Pirates of the Caribbean movie comes out on the 20th…

From the library – City of Glass and Unwind

I thought I was going to be good and only get one book, but I got two because I happened upon Unwind and being that it’s on my Amazon wishlist (which I’m using as more of a “to read in whatever manner you can get it” list… which come to think of it I should just keep in my “to read” list on Goodreads instead) I nabbed that too.

As planned, I grabbed City of Glass. I just finished City of Ashes and put up a review on Goodreads.

I had my writing day early this week, on Tuesday, and I very happily managed to tackle the chapter that was thwarting me in Apertures and add 3700 words to the manuscript (to be fair, many of those words were part of my earlier attempts and I just rewrote or shifted them around). I’m rapidly approaching the part of the novel that is more nebulous to me. I may need the help of Kris in the hope that if we rub our brains together, something might spark.

My husband is done with classes for the semester so he’s going to be home more often. Until he gets a summer job I may have to come to an agreement on a writing day (or several) where he can remove himself and give me alone time.

Edit: I neglected to mention that we got one review on Amazon! I didn’t read it (I’m trying to be good) but I encourage everyone who reads the book to give their (honest, please) rating and review on Amazon. Some people will only be convinced to read a book if it has a certain number of comments so let’s give them some opinions. 🙂 Thanks!

Another edit: Ugh, it’s “unwind” not “unwound.” Sorry!

-Amber
