Pre-order Voyage for the Sundered Crown

Big news! Book 4 in the Sundered Crown Saga is now available to pre-order and for the first time I’ll be launching a book on all major retailers.

Here’s the blurb (Likely to change closer to release) and you can read a sneak peek here.

The Kingdom of Delfinnia has fallen, but hope remains.

Sent on a daring voyage to seek out allies from across the sea the wizard, Luxon Edioz and his companions rediscover the continent of Tulin. A land that is full of dangers, magic, and adventure.

There they will find new allies, new wonders, and new enemies. As Danon’s conquest draws closer to completion, Luxon must use all of his wits and powers to unite the peoples of Tulin and convince them to help him save his homeland. 

It will be a voyage that will test him to his limits and one that will decide the fate of all.

Why I’ve gone back to KDP Select

So, a few months back I launched an experiment with my books by going wide with their distribution. Now that experiment is over and I will be going back to KDP Select exclusivity for all of my titles.

You may think that having my books available on every format under the sun would prove to be more profitable in the long run, in reality however it turned out that I was actually missing out on income I could have been making with KDP.

After going through my reports, it was clear that Amazon Kindle was where 90% of all my sales come from and hence 90% of my author income to boot.

To go wide I used Draft2Digital, a service that made distribution onto Kobo, Nook etc extremely easy and their support team was really great and I cannot fault them.

A no brainer

The real revelation for me came when I managed to land an international BookBub promotion for Terran Defenders: Genesis. The book was wide and I was expecting it to sell well on all channels and not just Amazon. Well, it did sell but when I compared the wide figures with Amazon’s there was a clear winner. Amazon Kindle sales were 10x higher than those on all the other sales channels put together.

As part of the experiment I put each of the Sundered Crown books into wider distribution but after multiple plugs via social channels and my newsletter not 1 of those books has sold on Nook, Kobo etc. Prior to this each book had been a part of KDP Select and even though sales were not great I was still able to make income from lends and page reads.

I apologise

So here I am apologising to my readers who do prefer Kobos and Nooks over Kindles. I hope you understand that aside from loving what I do this is also a side income too. Indy publishing is a business, albeit a one-man band most of the time and I am afraid finances do come into play when it comes to decisions.

Fortunately, there are plenty of apps out there that allow you to read kindle books on other platforms so I hope that this won’t deter your reading of my works too much.

So just to be clear-

Heir to the Sundered Crown

War for the Sundered Crown

Quest for the Sundered Crown

Are all back to being KDP Select exclusives along with The First Fear, Nightblade and Unconquered Blood of Kings

May Update – Sundered Crown Saga now wide

Hi, everyone, it’s a been a few weeks since my last post on the website so I thought I’d just post a bit of an update on what’s been occurring.

Mostly I’ve been revising and polishing The First Fear ahead of its release on June 22nd as well as working on Book 4 of the Sundered Crown Saga.

You asked I delivered…(finally)

Since the release of Heir to the Sundered Crown back in 2014, I’ve had a few of you contacting me asking when it and the other books in the series would become available on E-readers other than Amazon Kindle. Well, after much thought I decided to pull them out of Kindle Unlimited which forces them to be Amazon exclusives and have made them available to buy on Apple, Nook, Kobo and other outlets!
