If you want some bone-crunching action and good old-fashioned adventure then read my latest novel. Bounty for the Taking: Book One, is a fantasy adventure that follows three brothers as they travel the lands of Khara Thel, seeking wealth and fortune via bounty hunting in its various forms until they uncover a life-changing revelation.

Keeping it less-than-epic,
A Tale of Rum Town is a book I’ve written and published on Kindle. I’m running an experiment with Amazon’s algorithms but I need some help. If you’ve got a spare 2 minutes go to my Kindle book page for A Tale of Rum Town and add some tags. Put in whatever you think appropriate and any, or all, of these tags:
less than epic
Tell your friends to jump on and add tags. I’d like to see how many tags can be added in a week.
So you’ve written a book and it’s published on Kindle, Smashwords and all the other providers of eBooks & online ordering thereof. And it doesn’t sell. That leaves promotion. Did you leave that bit out of your dream ride to eBook glory and lots of sales? If you’re anything like me you probably did: because you don’t have a clue how to do it.
Self-promotion comes naturally to some people. Particularly the more extroverted (those who validate themselves externally) personality types. For myself this doesn’t come naturally. Internal validation has its many pitfalls and this is another.
Promotion and how to do it. That’s the cause du jour. When I’ve got a working clue I’ll put it up here as a long-winded article:
Self-Promotion for Introverts
Coming soon to the Khara Thel epublishing corner.
A Tale of Rum Town on Smashwords has an Easter coupon special. Get it for under a buck at US$0.99 if you enter the coupon code: LX53J
It is only valid until late April so get in quick to get a tale of the gritty underworld of a fantasy big city for a good Easter read.
It’s gone through the Amazon equivalent of Smashwords’ meatgrinder and now A Tale of Rum Town is available on Kindle for only US$1.99 – you can get it here or click on the cover art below.
Today I completed the second round of editing “A Tale of Rum Town”. There were loads of typos, spelling errors, and poor grammar. Added to that a few continuity problems and inconsistent, as well as confusing, use of names. It’s really tight now and one more editing pass should seal it up.
A few readers are still to provide me with feedback so I’m looking for any more readers who’re willing to give it a proof-read and offer feedback with the usual non-disclosure agreements in place.
Still to be done:
*Map of Rum Town (solid draft is done, but need to get the finished work)
*Secure cover artist and finalise cover concept
*Edit lead pages
*Decide if an ISBN should be purchased
*Decide if a glossary and, or, other appendices are required
It will be released on Amazon Kindle and probably a few other eBook vendors shortly after that.
