So I've been busy. Using everything I've learned from The Bestseller Experiment, and Mark Dawson's Self-Publishing podcasts (plus a few others), I'm preparing to launch CRY HAVOC into the world. I have a cover. I've formatted the book in Vellum so it even looks professional and has a chapter list that links up to the actual chapters in the book. I'm now writing a short story, CRY WITCH, set while Jack is a novice training to be a warrior priest as a freebie giveaway - I'll use this to help start building a mailing list and get people interested in the bigger world. I've also got my cover for that.
Now Susan Kaye Quinn, a guest on The Bestseller Experiment suggested you should actually get the whole series written before you launch but I'm not sure I can wait for that. I do know what Book 2 is called - CRY FEAR - and what it's about but it's a long way from being written. Part of me wants to see what the response is to CRY WITCH and CRY HAVOC before I write another book in the series...
Here are the covers...
Once the books are ready, I need to work out how to set up a mailing list and arrange some promotions through Instafreebie or Bookbub...
