Progress on GV
To be honest, my progress is withering. I am still expending time and effort, but brain atrophy is winning. I have just come to a decision to pull out almost fifty pages of earlier work as overcome by new direction. I can mush some small part of it into the current flow (hah!), but most of it is next to worthless, unless I do another book (an unlikely event given current progress).
The story is still active in my head, but my ability to put it into written words seems to diminish with each passing day. Focus and discipline are wonderful when you have them in command. I do not.
Again, my apologies, and I thank with all my heart those that continue to buy and promote the series. I have not given up. It just seems like it.
Up on Smashwords
I have completed the process of putting my books up on SMASHWORDS. This will provide availability for just about any format. And just about any major distribution, including:
- Barnes and Noble
Up on Kindle
Sales on Amazon's Digital Text Platform (newly renamed to Kindle Direct Publishing) and better known as the Kindle Store have been encouraging. Thank you very much.
Hard copies of all books (in trade paperback format) as well as electronic copies are still available through Third Millennium Publishing.This was my first online publisher, so I would ask that if all else is equal, give them a try when buying the books.
With all the new digital marketing outlets I am seeing a respectable rise in book sales. This has to be due entirely to word of mouth from you. I cannot thank you enough. Keep telling your friends about Genellan. Pass the word. And thanks for sticking with me.
The cover art by Jeremy Ellis is awesome. GIV and now GII! Check it
