I have some really great perks up for this campaign, so I hope that everyone pitches in and/or shares the link! This doesn’t just support the sequel, it is going to support my entire studio that needs some serious upgrades. Please read my blurb and tell me what you think!
Look for information on how YOU can pitch in to bring “The Overcast of Autumn” to print next Fall, coming soon!
I’m had to take a hiatus from working on the sequel to further my academic mind this semester. However, never fear! It is coming, I promise.
I also have a newish blog I’ve been working on for my participation in the SCA. You can find it just a hop away at annasrome.blog.com.
Starting tomorrow through Sunday, it’s the last chance to get the book free on Kindle. After that, I will open the publishing rights to multiple formats including Nook, Sony, Smashwords, etc. So if you didn’t get it on Kindle before, now you can!
The sequel, “The Overcast of Autumn” is underway, coinciding with my history thesis, so it will be a busy next few months as I finish my second, and hopefully, final undergraduate degree, so I can move into my master’s program next year.
I am also in the process of building a new blog to focus on my SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) research, so those more into the recreational aspect of the Middle Ages can certain stop over there when it’s complete.
Copies of “Of Summer and Winter” will be available at Market Day at Birka in Manchester, NH, and Templecon in Warwick, RI.
Almost 2 months in, and I can’t complain. Comic Con went very well, sales have since dropped, but that’s to be expected. I’m planning on doing some more pushing after the New Year, but right now I’m focusing on finishing my semester and enjoying the holiday season in Florida with the family shortly thereafter.
“Of Summer and Winter” Kindle Edition will be FREE again come Christmas Day and the day after for all the new Kindle owners, then following the New Year, you will be able to find it on additional formats including Nook.
The Sequel now has an “official” title, which is “The Overcast of Autumn.” I will be working on that for some time over break and finish a draft fast enough to get it to print hopefully by the fall.
Happy Holidays, everyone!
I can’t complain, really. No, I’m not a millionaire, but it’s been a lot of fun getting the book launched. Next weekend brings Rhode Island Comic Con, the full-launch, which I am very excited about. I have a box of books, posters, bookmarks, etc. I’m also going to be bringing some artwork and costume work with me to help increase sales. After that, I’m going to see about doing events at my school and local bookstores to push into the holidays, and then in February is TempleCon!
Busy busy busy, but, I have to be.
The giveaway on Goodreads is drumming up a lot of interest, as well as a listing I now have on the social network Umenow, which can be found here: https://umenow.com/book/of-summer-and-winter
The free Kindle book event I had resulted in 390 copies being given away, and the book was on the FIRST PAGE of free books in the Historical Fiction section on Amazon during most of the run, topping off at the highest at #14 out of 100 top sellers. That was pretty exciting. So much so in fact I got very little work done as I was watching the stats.
So now, we wait and see how things go from here. The next free Kindle book event is this coming Saturday, November 3rd, in honor of Rhode Island Comic Con, so if you didn’t snag a free copy last weekend, you can do it then.
Until then, hunkering down for Hurricane Sandy!
