August roundup

My apologies, but the blog site has been neglected while I concentrate on my monthly newsletters and Facebook pages.

The August newsletter has just gone out, and The Long Way Home now stands at 12 episodes, or 147k words. I was aiming to release bundles of episodes as ebooks this summer, but I’m holding those back for an IASFA promotion in December. I need to think of names for the books, because The Long Way Home is the series name. The individual episodes have names, but I’m struggling with names for several episodes together.

What’s IASFA? The IASFA is the grandly named International Association of Science Fiction & Fantasy Authors. The authors in the group are independents, and the important thing for you as a reader is that they do promotions. Participating authors have to get a temporary release from Amazon to give their book away for free, and these are compiled into a list and available to any reader who has joined the IASFA.

September’s promo is ‘All SF’, October is ‘All Fantasy’, November is ‘Urban Fantasy’ (yes, I’ll be putting some books up for that), December is ‘Space Opera’ and yes, I’m planning to launch The Long Way Home ebooks in that promotion.

Writing

The conclusion of the Bite Back series is all very tightly bound together. So tightly, I will have to get the books out one after the other. There are 2 or 3 left. Still working out how I can achieve this.

(Yes, it should be ‘insurmountable’ not ‘unsurmountable’ in the episode blurb)
