The Library of Anukdun is now available for pre-order at Amazon. The book is at the proofreading stage and runs just shy of a hundred thousand words or 350 print pages (based on book size and font). It’s possible I’ll release it before June 27, but I give myself the full three-month window—in case something comes up. I’m pricing the eBook at 2.99 US for the pre-order period and the first week of sale. After that it will likely climb by a dollar. Print on demand paperbacks cost what they cost, plus a buck or two for me.
I’m going to update all the print covers with the newer cover art, so anybody who wants the original manga style covers must order them over the next few weeks. As so few print books have sold (understatement), it seems ridiculous to worry about consistency.
Distressingly, I’ve noticed that the one negative review on amazon.com for Ivy’s Tangle has now moved to the top of the list after months of collecting all the negative votes from visitors to the book’s page. Sadly, plenty of people will forgo trying a short, free book because of that. If you enjoyed the books and have the time, I’d appreciate any positive reviews (if you don’t like my books, why are you wasting your time reading my blog?). If writing a review is more than you have the energy or time for, then please take a second to click the ‘like/helpful’ button on a review you think is valuable and represents something approximating your own opinions, and if you see an absurd, unhelpful, or just plain spammy review, consider hitting the ‘not helpful’ button. It doesn’t make them go away, but at least they move down and become less visible.
Thanks for reading.
