Happy Book Birthday to The Sentinel’s Reign – 1 today! #fantasy #99p #99c

What a wonderful day to celebrate the book birthday of book 2 in my Silent Sea Chronicles trilogy – The Sentinel’s Reign.

 

ebook pic

The year has flown by whilst I’ve been writing the third installment and preparing for publication of The Sentinel’s Alliance next week. It’s amazing to think that a little idea of a character lost in the woods and found by two strangers has become a 1000+ page trilogy = 380k+ words.

I have to admit I’m feeling a little lost myself now the trilogy is complete. I have lots of plans for future books within the Silent Sea Chronicles and other books to complete, but it’s always a struggle to let go and settle into something new.

I’ve been busy all week sharing reviews for books 1 and 2 in the series, so this is just a quick post to celebrate the birthday and remind you that all the books in the trilogy are only 99p at the moment.

Keep an eye out for more reviews coming in during the last two days of the blog tour. I’ll just share the one quick quote from a recent review on Goodreads by Jessica Belmont as it deals with something every writer of trilogies must fear…

‘What I love about The Sentinel’s Reign is that it doesn’t struggle from “middle book syndrome.” The plot is great, the characters are developing, and this doesn’t feel like just a bridge from book one to book three!’

The books have picked up so many wonderful quotes during the blog tour and I would love to share them all. Why not check them out on Goodreads and Amazon on the links below.

Finally, I’ll end with a plea. According to an increasing number of reviewers this trilogy is worth reading. If you are considering it and would like to help out a struggling author then please buy it now. I would love to make an impact when book 3 comes out on 6th July. And of course, if you have read it, those reviews you share on Amazon and Goodreads are like gold dust. I want to run a Bookbub ads soon and the more reviews I have the better my chances of being accepted.

Thanks for reading and enjoy your weekend.

The Lost Sentinel        The Sentinel’s Reign        The Sentinel’s Alliance.

 

The whole series can be yours for only £2.97, less than the cost of one book at its usual price!

Last chance to buy Visions of Zarua for 99p worldwide #fantasy #epicfantasy

Just a quick reminder that the special birthday price for the ebook of Visions of Zarua – a standalone epic fantasy, is increasing tomorrow.

I reduced the price in November during the book birthday blitz hosted by Rachel’s Random Resources. You can see my highlight posts here part 1 and part 2. I’ve had some wonderful reviews and am really pleased to see the avg Goodreads rating of 4.26 based on 46 ratings. You can see the reviews here, but for now here are a few quick quotes.

‘I loved everything about Visions of Zarua! From the flawed, relatable characters to the intricately planned out world of Paltria, and the ancient abandoned city of Zarua…this book had everything I want to see in a fantasy novel.’ – Jessica Rachow

‘I was captivated about this book as soon as I saw the cover, it had that vibe that said this would be an intriguing, epic, spooky, mysterious novel. And that’s what I got.’ – Jessica

‘What a great mix of fantasy, magic and mystery this proved to be! The talented author has built a unique version of a medieval style world where there are barons, Kings, wizards, magic and monsters.’ – Elaine

I’d love to sell a few more copies. If you fancy picking up Visions for just 99p, you need to act fast. Why not check out this preview to help you make up your mind.

 

FANTASY MEETS MYSTERY IN THIS STANDALONE EPIC FANTASY.

Book sale! The Lost Sentinel and The Sentinel’s Reign only 99p #fantasy

For a limited time in October the Silent Sea Chronicles will be just 99p / 99c. This is a worldwide sale, so please share the news with everyone you know!

The magical island of Kalaya is dying, along with its Sentinel.

 

The Sentinel’s reign is doomed to failure unless Tei can prevent the Kalayan people from plunging into war.

 

You can also check the book series page on Goodreads and add them to your bookshelf. I’ll leave you with a few quotes…

Brizzlelass – Epic fantasy at its best.

Pooled Ink Reviews – If you’re a fantasy loving fan seeking a tale filled with adventure and magic then you should really give this series a try.

Jennifer – A line from a book – Yummy is the word that comes to mind when I think about this book. As the second book in the series, my favorite characters are back, Callisa, Tei, Brogan and Mara … I loved revisiting Kalaya and as in previous books the descriptions of the world and of the magic it contains are beautiful.

Susan Hampson – Books from Dusk till Dawn – A super paced story, plenty going off and an ending that makes me hungry for the last installment. This is a cracking epic saga.

Sofii – A Book. A Thought. – I love the writing style, I love when the authors manage to tell a story that seems so complex in a very simple way, I think it’s something unique and it has that power to keep you wanting for more. It’s also very quick to read!  
I think that if you like books with multiple characters and you like to follow the story of each one as if you were there with them, you have to give this trilogy a chance.

The Lost Sentinel 99p / 99c #KDP #kindle countdown deal and blog update http://mybook.to/LostSentinel

Hello everyone.

I can’t believe I’ve been away from blogging for the whole summer holidays. The time has flown by while I’ve been busy working on book 2 in the Silent Sea Chronicles and attempting to entice the kids away from their XBox’s with days out and holidays. Now they’re both back at school, it’s time for me to get serious about finishing The Sentinel’s Reign ready for publication in 2018. I also plan to take part in NaNoWriMo this year and beat the 50K word count.

I’m hoping to make a slow return to blogging over the next few weeks with book reviews, photo posts and a guest post from Colleen Story about research and how she approaches it for fiction and non-fiction. I will also be reviewing her new book ‘Overwhelmed Writer Rescue’. It’s a brilliant self-help book and I can’t wait to share my review with you.

In the meantime, I’m really pleased to announce the new kindle countdown deal for The Lost Sentinel has just gone live this morning. You can pick it up at the bargain price of 99p / 99c for the next week Amazon universal link.

I’m hoping to achieve the same success as the previous countdown deal for Visions of Zarua. See my results post from July. This time I’m trying out a few new ad companies. If it goes well (or maybe if it doesn’t) I’ll share the results with you next week. I’m keeping my fingers crossed as The Lost Sentinel is feeling a bit like a neglected child at the moment while I’ve been so busy working on the sequel.

Please pick up a copy in the countdown deal, or read it via kindle unlimited. And as ever, if you would consider leaving a review you’ll make this indie author…

…this happy!

Enjoy your day.

#KDP Countdown deal Visions of Zarua is 99p http://mybook.to/VOZ #fantasy #epicfantasy

Good morning everyone!

Today I wanted to let you know that Visions of Zarua is just 99p during its Kindle Countdown Deal 20th – 27th July. Here’s the link if you’re interested in learning more – Amazon UK / US.

Visions of Zarua is a dual timeline fantasy following the story of two wizards who live 350 years apart.

Paddren is the reluctant hero of present day Paltria, while Jago is a junior wizard who lived 350 years ago when the problems first beset the magical city of Zarua.

Steeped in mystery, with plenty of magic and murder along the way, this is a fast-paced action adventure on an epic scale.

Visions of Zarua is a standalone fantasy with 18 reviews and an average rating of 4.5 on Amazon UK. On Goodreads it has 26 ratings with an average of 4.27.

Visions of Zarua Book Cover.jpg

I’m excited about the countdown deal this time around as this will be the first time I’ve used any paid Ad services apart from AMS to promote it.

For those Indie authors out there interested in using Ad sites, I’ll blog about the results in the near future. I don’t have high expectations of  making my money back, I’m just hoping for a few downloads and some more exposure of both Visions and The Lost Sentinel.

LEARNT SO FAR: You can’t just set up this kind of advertising on a whim, which of course is exactly what I tried to do. Some sites need you to book a date weeks or even months in advance, and many require a certain number of reviews as well. That’s a great form of quality control, but doesn’t help when you want to promote a newly published book. My advice – get organised in advance!

I have my fingers crossed this next week of promos sees a few sales. I’ll leave you with a couple of quotes about Visions of Zarua from Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling and dark fantasy novel that really keeps you gripped from beginning to end!, 27 Jan. 2016       MPB

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommend for fantasy, magic and mystery fans!, 27 May 2016       Sarah

The Lost Sentinel #blogtour Wrap up #TuesdayBookBlog #fantasy http://mybook.to/LostSentinel

It has been a manic few months of planning, answering questions and dreaming up guest posts, but now the blog tour has come to an end. I’ll keep checking back over all the posts and replying to any comments, but right now I wanted to take the opportunity to thank everyone who took part, everyone who liked, commented and shared, and of course thanks to those who were kind enough to review my new book.

small blog tour header

I do have a big apology to make to two bloggers, who I included in the tour to post reviews, but due to email errors at my end they hadn’t been aware they were actually supposed to post reviews on these dates. Sorry Susan – Books from Dusk till Dawn and Mirjana – Oloriel Moonshadow/Cyanide and Cherries. Yahoo has been doing some funny things with my emails, and somehow I didn’t realise these two slipped through and were not sent / received. Running a blog tour with 17 bloggers over 16 days, it was inevitable something would go wrong, but still… I should have been on top of it.

Below, I’ve added links to each post over the 16 day blog tour, so please check out any you may have missed.

Finally, I will be taking a break from blogging. Everyone is probably fed up of these posts by now anyway, and I really want to get on with book 2 while the kids are still at school. Only 3 and half weeks to go! I need to put in some serious writing time.

Thanks again to everyone for your support.
