Other Works That are receiving a Face Lift?
The Thread was the first story to get a brand new look and a rerelease. The Free PDF still has the old cover on it, but the new and improved version has been updated on Amazon. I also took a few moments to update the manuscript and send it through Grammarly for a better reading experience. Meet Luke and Eli before they meet one another.
Weaver's Tale is going live as we speak with its brand new cover. I have also released a complete volume ebook which includes all four of the original short reads titles in one volume for only $2.99. It has also been sent through Grammarly for a more polished reading experience. Araack Kniid is a spider shifter from the Netherworld. He holds Eidolon magic and rules a small outpost kingdom in the Dorcha known as the Longest Purple, but for nearly a thousand years he has believed a lie. Can he overcome the betrayals of his past to finally live?
Why Short Reads? Because People are Listening.
There are nine reasons that short reads are better than trying to publish full-length novels that I touched on in the last blog. But there is another reason why I personally want to publish the stories as short reads. It might be a more important reason not just to me, but also to many who need to hear books read rather than just read them.
See, I want to attempt recording the stories as audio reads. As an Independent Author, I would like to upload my recorded books as for sale audiobooks, but a novel is so long that it would be hundreds possibly thousands of hours of read time to get just the currently published works recorded. If they were shorter, it would be easier to manage with the programs I already own. No out of pocket expense and easier workload could make audiobooks a possible task.
So while I am pushing Project Publish as Much as I Can, there are multiple reasons why.

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.
