The Sentinel’s Reign book birthday #fantasy #epicfantasy #trilogy

This post is to celebrate the 2nd birthday of book 2 in my Silence Sea Chronicles – The Sentinel’s Reign.

With lockdown and epidemics still going on, I think it’s good to look back and celebrate successes. By now I should be preparing to publish my next book but everything has been set back, so at least today I can feel proud of a past achievement rather than focus on the delays to my plans.

On 29th June 2018 I released this beauty into the world…

I remember feeling nervous that it wouldn’t match the quality of book, but reviewers soon put my mind at ease. It’s great to look back and share a few of their comments…

The Sentinel’s Reign breathes life into an island of magic as well as enemies thirsting for its power. Adventurous and unique this fantasy only gets more captivating with every turn.’

‘After reading The Lost Sentinel, I was invested in these character’s lives and as before beware of heartbreak. There were times that I was in mourning and then as I was continuing the story, I wanted to fist pump the air. This story will flip your emotions and as the story intensifies with the pending danger, I could not put this book down.’

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!

‘What a fantastic continuation from book one… Overall, this book was action packed and had me glued to it’s pages just as its predecessor did, even as I was just processing what happened in one chapter, I was desperate to speed through the next to see what happened! I cannot wait to get my hands on book three and see where the adventure takes Tei and her friends next.

‘As soon as I read Book One, I bought the next two in the series and all three books were fabulous! Suzanne has created a wonderful new world full of characters you will mostly love and a few to hate but they are all superb.’

Check out The Sentinel’s Reign on Goodreads

Reading all the lovely reviews of this book has made me feel very emotional. I’m so happy that I’ve been able to share this story with the world and that readers have loved Silent Sea Chronicles as much as me. Sometimes with all that’s happening it’s good to be reminded of what we have achieved.

My only regret about self publishing is not being able to reach readers on a wider scale. I believe in these books and I wish I could wave a magic wand to help people find them.

Unfortunately, I don’t own a magic wand but the next best thing is happening – soon all three books will be brought to life in audio format! Until then, I’ll try to keep positive; who knows what’s around the corner.

If you are tempted to try out the series here are the universal links for Book 1 The Lost Sentinel or Silent Sea Chronicles trilogy box set for only £6.99 / $6.99.

Have a great day everyone.

Guest Post #Indieauthor Neveah Hor #YA #fantasyromance

I wrote my first novel when I was 12, but I wasn’t brave enough to self publish until I was 38. So I was very impressed when a young author contacted me about writing a guest post for my blog. It’s great to encourage the younger generations to follow their dreams, so today I’m very pleased to welcome 13 year old author, Neveah Hor. Her debut, Love Machine, was published in February 2020.

Why I chose self publishing

Hello! I’m Neveah and I’m so honoured to be able to guest post on this blog. I’m a self-published thirteen-year-old author of my debut novel titled Love Machine. This novel is a young adult romantic fantasy. I would like to share with you on why I chose self-publishing over traditional publishing. Of course, there are many pros and cons of self-publishing so be sure to read on and explore the reasons behind my choice of publishing.
Firstly, self-publishing allows me to have the freedom to title my book and choose a cover
design. Traditional publishing does not allow you to have the freedom to choose your cover
design and your book title.
Secondly, it’s fast and convenient. Just after a few clicks, you can easily publish a book through self-publishing. Traditional publishing can take months and years. You either get a rejection letter or good news.
Thirdly, I get to market the book by myself and I enjoy connecting with my readers personally. If you traditional publish, then most of the marketing work will be done for you. It might be great news to some people but to me, I like to reach out and communicate with my readers personally. I don’t need to be a bestselling author and I don’t wish to be more superior than others. I want to be an author with a real passion for writing.
Last but not least, royalties. Self-published authors need money to feed themselves with food. I would say that royalties is not really the main point for my self-publishing choice but it’s just another benefit. Self-publishing allows you to get more royalties than if you traditionally publish.
That’s really all I have for you today.
Thanks for reading!
Neveah
