Silent Sea Chronicles Publication week wrap up #newrelease #fantasy #boxset

It’s been a week since I released the box set of my Silent Sea Chronicles trilogy. A week of watching the public snap it up at the bargain price of 99p. I’ve sold 241 copies in just 7 days so I’m really pleased with that number and hopefully these sales will lead to some reviews.

I think I would need to sell that many a day to get anywhere in the Amazon rankings, but it’s still amazing and it has kept me going while I struggle through a bad cold that’s completely wiped me out.

The sale runs until tomorrow, so if you haven’t picked it up you’ll have to be quick. Amazon link.

Tei has magic in a world where people like her are persecuted and forced into exile. Whilst fleeing their home, her father is attacked and his deathbed confession reveals a dangerous secret that will change her life forever.

She must join the exiles in the search for the lost Sentinel, but they are not the only ones after the missing guardian. Sinister Masked Riders are on their trail and time is running out.

Tei must risk everything she loves to save Kalaya, but is she ready to make that sacrifice?

I wanted to thank all the wonderful bloggers who have been helping share the news over the last week and whose posts I know have led to sales.  I thought it would be great to share links to their posts and maybe you can find some new bloggers and reviewers to follow.

Also a quick thanks to those who have been sharing the tweets about the release. I appreciate each and every bit of help from you all.

Here’s the posts I’m excited to highlight, many of which have links to their reviews of my books.

The Strawberry Post

‘Today there is a special announcement on my blog, an author interview and a bit of a promo post (which I’m volunteering to do), about a book series I’m already excitedly reading and would love to share with everyone.  The Silent Sea Chronicles is a trilogy of fantasy books from author Suzanne Rogerson.  I’ve so far read the first two books in the series and they have been amazing (links to my reviews below) and I’m sure the third book will be equally brilliant wrapping up what is an amazing, emotional and epic fantasy tale…’

Bound to writing

‘Happy Release Day to the Silent Sea Chronicles Box set by Suzanne Rogerson! It’s with a great honor, that I’m able to share with everyone the completed fantasy box set…’

A line from a book

‘Good new everybody! Suzanne Rogerson’s Silent Sea Chronicles is now a 3 book boxed set. I have had the privilege so far of reading and reviewing the first 2 books. “The Lost Sentinel” and .“The Sentinel’s Reign” (click links for my reviews). I’m looking forward to reading the third book very soon.’

Maxine’s Obsessions

A wonderful fantasy, full of magic, set in a beautiful world. My review for book one, The Lost Sentinel, can be found HERE.

Quote taken from review of book 3 – ‘I love this series, and I’m sad to see it end. I took longer to read this one, because I wasn’t ready to leave this world or these characters. I love Suzanne Rogerson’s writing. I can’t wait to read more from her. I highly recommend this series! You won’t want to miss it!’

BooksfromDusktilDawn

Yes more Blogs

Quote from book 3 review – ‘WOW!! Unbelievable. Amazing. Brilliant. Wonderful. Beautiful. Just a few words to describe not just this book but the whole trilogy has been an undeniably amazing read. I read all three books one after the other. I usually have a break between trilogy books but I couldn’t put these books down…’

Odd Socks and Lollipops

‘…Three amazing books filled with magic for 99p! I loved reading this trilogy and I would definitely recommend for fantasy fans…’

Just Books

Review from book 1 – ‘I loved this character-based fantasy…Suzanne Rogerson has created a wonderful world, and thankfully I was able to dive straight into the second book of the series.’

Kim’s Process

Previously reviewed book 1 – ‘The detail in the writing was also strong and descriptive.  I found myself in tears over the death of a character that was never even introduced just because the funeral was so emotional… a book I would highly recommend to other writers who are struggling with their descriptions.’

Mai’s Musings

‘I have exciting news for those of you who haven’t picked up your copies of the Silent Seas Chronicles by Suzanne Rogerson! The box set containing all three books is released today, and for a limited time will be at the amazing price of 99p/99c. Honestly, this offer is just too good to miss.’ (reviewed the trilogy)

Silent Sea Chronicles Box Set – 1 week to go! #fantasy #sff http://mybook.to/sscboxset

The Silent Sea Chronicles box set will be published on 4th October.

A few years ago having a finished trilogy was just a fanciful dream and I doubted my ability to complete such a huge project. According to Amazon the three books total 1396 pages! And for a short time you can get all that for just 99p worldwide. Pre-order it here.

But that is not the purpose of this post today. Today I want to get a few opinions on the blurb as I don’t want years of work to be let down by an inferior blurb.

Here is the finished blurb as of 30/09/19…

Tei has magic in a world where people like her are persecuted and forced into exile. Whilst fleeing their home, her father is attacked and his deathbed confession reveals a dangerous secret that will change her life forever.

Tei’s homeland, the magical island of Kalaya, is dying and without a Sentinel to restore the magic, it’s only a matter of time before all life is wiped out.

She must join the exiles in the search for the lost Sentinel, but they are not the only ones after the missing guardian. Sinister Masked Riders are on their trail and time is running out.

Tei must risk everything she loves to save Kalaya, but is she ready to make that sacrifice?

1396 pages of magic, adventure and intrigue.

This epic fantasy box set contains:
The Lost Sentinel – Book 1
The Sentinel’s Reign – Book 2
The Sentinel’s Alliance – Book 3

Praise for the Silent Sea Chronicles…

This is a story about war, magic, and destiny, which you cannot miss. Following the characters during their journeys has been incredible… (Goodreads) Sofia – A book. A thought.

Love this series!!…The Sentinel’s Alliance is an epic conclusion to a fantastic series. (Amazon) Jessica Belmont

I don’t want this series to end! (Amazon) Yvonne

I have really enjoyed this series and strongly recommend it to those that enjoy fantasy stories… I can’t wait to read more from Suzanne Rogerson. (Goodreads) Jessica Bronder

What an epic journey this trilogy has been…There are some terrific battle scenes, with massive shocks, and mouth dropping moments that I just hadn’t seen coming, all delivered with Rogerson perfection. (Amazon top 1000 reviewer. Vine Voice) Susan Hampson

(The Sentinel’s Alliance) This has been a fantastic finale to the trilogy, it’s had everything that made the first two books to good and then some. All of Suzanne’s brilliant world building skills are still shining through… (Goodreads) KT Robson

Rogerson has managed to craft together a fantasy trilogy that is simultaneously complex and quick. So many layers and twists are woven throughout the books and yet it never feels too heavy, the pace moves at a determined clip and action holds one’s attention captive. (Amazon) Angela – Pooled Ink Reviews

Fabulous Saga… it’s well written and utterly magical! (Amazon) Shelley Clarke

“The Sentinel’s Alliance” – The story is skillfully elaborated, comprises interesting turns, and has a great flow. Suzanne Rogerson introduces each character with finesse… Highly recommended. (Goodreads) Karen

At the moment I’m relying on my readers quotes (taken from Amazon and Goodreads) and I want to know if this is enough to entice you to buy it?

Your opinion will really help me out, thanks for your time.

Silent Sea Chronicles news and narrator needed for #fantasy #ya #audiobook

Now that my trilogy is complete and published I’ve been looking into the options I have available for Silent Sea Chronicles. My plans are to release a box set in October and to begin the production of the first audio book.

I ran a recent poll regarding the cover options available for the box set, thanks to those who voted and commented. I have now made my decision and look forward to revealing the cover to you very soon.

I have also begun the audition process for book 1 The Lost Sentinel through ACX, though I would like the chosen narrator to produce the whole Silent Sea Chronicles trilogy.

I have two issues to decide upon before work can start.

Issue number one – Gender of narrator. The lead character is a young woman, but there are also two male main characters as well as numerous important male and female characters ranging from the very young to the old. On balance I feel a female narrator would be more suited to this but I’m asking for auditions from both and will see how that goes.

Issue number two – Age of the narrator. As this is more a YA trilogy, should I be looking for a younger voice actor? It’s not something I’ve considered before when I’ve listened to audiobooks so should I be worrying about it now? I haven’t listened to YA fantasy in audio so I’ve been listening to samples and am still researching what other authors have opted for.

Maybe you would like to have your say on your ideal narrator. If so please vote in the poll or comment in the post. I’m especially looking for comments from those who have read the series to see who they imagine would put voice Tei, Brogan, Farrell, Callisa etc. Even if you haven’t read the books, please vote. I appreciate all feedback.

If you are a narrator and interested in auditioning, please follow this link to ACX for more information.

Here’s a quick reminder of The Lost Sentinel – The magical island of Kalaya is dying along with its Sentinel. With the Kalayan people turning their back on magic, can Tei help the exiles find their new Sentinel before it’s too late?

THE LOST SENTINEL COVER

 

Finally, I’m looking to run a short promo when the box set is available, so if any bloggers are interested in running a feature on release day please let me know. I will blog about that again when I have a release date but it’s never too early to start planning!

Thanks for reading.
