No scene-snippet today. I’m deep into plotting out Penton No. 5, ILLUMINATION, which might or might not be the final book in the series. My publisher elected to not continue the series after ALLEGIANCE, so I will gauge the desire of readers for it to continue by how well ILLUMINATION does. Fortunately, with indie publishing so widespread, authors can now complete discontinued series, and I get emails every week from readers asking about Penton, so no worries. I’m shooting for an April release for ILLUMINATION! Sign up to my newsletter in the tab above to keep up with progress.
LAST CHANCE! Even though the print version of PIRATESHIP DOWN has been available for a few days, the ebook drops tomorrow, Nov. 2, so you can still enter the preorder $50 giftcard giveaway–even if you order the print version. The giveaway ends tonight, so use the links in the “Pre-order Giveaway” tab at the top of the page to enter. Please don’t “game” the system by buying the book, getting your receipt, and then returning the book. It hurts my future promotions with Amazon to have returns, and it’s not fair to the others who are entering fairly. There have been only five to do this so far, but it’s wrong, folks.
To all those who have preordered, THANK YOU. Remember to leave a review on Amazon when you’ve read the book–again, Amazon uses the number of reviews to decide which books get promoted, so they’re really important.
The PIRATESHIP DOWN blog tour starts tomorrow, with a new $50 giftcard giveaway (yep, you can enter both), so look for links here each day for the next couple of weeks.
So, okay, winners! I didn’t have a winner announcement last week, so I’m doubling up today. Please email me at the contact tab above with your mailing info or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Copy and paste the notice below with your name so I’ll remember what you won. If it’s a TBR book, let me know if there are any genres you prefer NOT to receive. I can’t make any promises but will try.
