I can't tell you how excited I am that KDP has added the manage series feature for independent authors to be able to group their works together. I took advantage of it last night and grouped several miniseries together. Check these first five titles out! The rest are coming as I revise and publish!
Draoithe: Tantalu *Prequel
Draoithe: A Pack Forms Volume 1
Draoithe: The Council Volume 2
Draoithe: Magic Calls to Magic Volume 3
Draoithe: Dragons Come Volume 4
Draoithe: The Ruiri Complete and other miniseries will be grouped together soon!
As you all know, I made a mistake when I first began publishing the books and uploaded my manuscripts as 8.5x11 books as I was learning. I continued it because that size is much less expensive to produce, but have caved to the belief that the 6x9 size is the accepted standard book size. So if you collect the paperbacks and want the standard version, look for Draoithe: The Ruiri Complete Volume 5 edition 2 along with it being added to the Draoithe Series Saga on Amazon. This is exactly the same story only it is in a differently sized book. All of the parts were already 6x9. so it made sense to offer both especially when the 6x9 allows for expanded distribution and the 8.5x11 does not.
Draoithe Magic Calls to Magic Part 1 is FREE from Oct. 29-Nov 2. Be sure to grab your FREE copy before the hourglass drops all of its sand! Vampires arrive at Draoithe and the dream is no longer all about shifters! If you grab a copy, let me know what you think. Or better yet leave a review if you can. I love to hear what you think.
Behind the Scenes
The day job does suck the energy to write and focus on my books. I do so wish that I had the luxury of being able to dispense with it, but at least I do something I'm good at that I can take pride in even if it's no longer what I would choose to do. Sigh... Merch is still a sore point. And that's why I'm pushing back once again on any kind of audio/video book or podcast. I want to do all of that so much, but there is only so much time in a day, and I still want to write. So... If it matters to anyone, I have added nearly 10,000 words to the last title in the series. No, the other 'last' stories aren't finished, but that's okay because I write the scenes as they come to me, not necessarily in the right order. LOL. I do see the end, so I guess I'm working with the results in mind to be able to obtain the goal. I am taking a week off from publishing new titles so I can get the series organized correctly on KDP! Wish me Luck! No Negotiations will begin publishing next weekend! Gaspard Gautier is back!
Teaser Excerpt from the WIP
Saoghail Elias stepped into Enrith as the new Ri tuaithe. He was too young and dumb to be able to do the job. He knew it. His father hadn’t given him an option.
He'd pissed the man off. No real surprise there. How was it his fault that King Elias’s mistress preferred his cock to his father’s? Whatever. Only he was in nowhere and seriously missed the court.
The old king of Enrith died. His son was a bastard and only six years old. The snot-nosed brat wandered around the castle irritating the men at arms crying over his dead father. He would have to do something about the kid. He should’ve killed the boy and deleted the threat, but Vadi was just a kid.
None of Elias’s men at arms were happy to have been shipped off to the backwater castle on the edge of Connacht. The kid wasn’t faring well at the hands of surly men. Saoghail sure as hell was in no mood to babysit the boy. Murdering the little guy felt far too gruesome, though.
Saoghail sighed. Forget the kid, what was he doing there? He was a second son. He knew next to nothing about running a castle...
Okay I have to run away and get some work done. Happy Halloween and enjoy the weekend! Remember to be kind and leave a review when you read!
Welcome to Ophelia Kee Speaks. This is a blog chronicling my independent author walk. The journey into the dream has been a life-changing experience as I try to become a full-time writer and leave the professional world behind me. In my blog each day, you will find information on the ‘behind the scenes’ for writing contemporary adult fantasy fiction and paranormal romance stories set in the dream. I will speak on topics detailing with my writing, publishing, promotion, and marketing as well as social media dealing with my books, book trailers, book launches, book art, music, audio, and video, as well as shameless self-promotion. I am not an expert and am not claiming to be one. I am simply one writer offering a glimpse of my struggle to become a successful independent author. Thank you for considering my words.
