Hello Family, Friends, and Fans!
First of all, thank you to all of you for supporting me so far on this journey. I really appreciate your support and interest in my writing and my life.
There are some changes afoot. Big changes. And in light of these changes, I will no longer be writing and making weekly blog posts here.
Why? Because I am publishing Poseidon’s Pearl, Book One in The Poseidon’s Object Serie on Kindle Vella.
Those of you who see me on social media may be familiar with this post already, but I have the cover image below for your pleasure, designed by May Dawney Designs.
HOW DOES KINDLE VELLA WORK?
1. I will publish weekly “episodes” (aka chapters) of my novel, Poseidon’s Pearl.
2. The first three chapters are FREE. Then, you buy tokens to get the following chapters. This way, if you don’t like my book for any reason, you don’t have to continue to read it.
3. Buying tokens is inexpensive. You can get 200 tokens for $2, which will get you approximately 4-8 episodes.
4. After the last chapter has been available on Kindle Vella for at least 30 days, I can publish the book in both paperback and ebook format.
HOW KINDLE VELLA HELPS YOU AS A READER:
1. It lets you get a taste of my writing, and you get to decide if you want to keep reading my book or decide to DNF(Do Not Finish) it.
2. Since you get my book in weekly updates, it gives you less wait time between my books.
3. If you like the book enough to want to reread it, or you want to wait until the whole book is out, I will publish the book on Kindle Unlimited as an e-book. Or you could get a paperback copy.
HOW KINDLE VELLA HELPS ME AS A WRITER:
1. It tells me if readers like my work, if there is interest, etc.
2. It gives me time to work on the next book, so I can complete them and make them the best quality they can be before publishing them, also in this same format.
3. I get your feedback on each chapter in the form of a thumbs up, a favorite token, or a comment.
4. Kindle Vella allows me to build my reader base.
5. I can do one last read-through of each chapter so you get the highest quality writing I can manage.
The Prologue will be available for your reading pleasure for FREE on February 28th, 2023! Mark your calendars!
Each episode after that will publish once weekly, every Tuesday. This is why I will be discontinuing these weekly blog posts in favor of weekly chapters or “episodes.”
If you missed it, here is the cover for the ebook! Kindle Vella will use the same image, but it had to be cropped.
If you made it here, thank you! I appreciate all of you.
Until next time, F3s!
