Portal of Infinity, Book 1 sales.

Well book 1, Champion for Hire has been selling rather well and gaining good reviews! I have been in the top one hundred for the 'gods & goddesses' sub-category for more than a week now, which I guess isn't that big of a deal because it doesn't get displayed on the page.
However, I did make it into the top one hundred for 'Swords & Sorcery' the other day and stayed there for all of the evening, but sadly I fell out during the overnight. Guess not enough insomniacs bought my book.

But I remain hopeful, I've been seeing good sales spikes on the weekends, so I'm hoping I'll make it back into that category, and then who knows? Maybe I can try to make the top one hundred for Fantasy! THAT would be quite an achievement!

And to all of you that have bought my book, thank you! I do appreciate you taking the time to buy and read my work. For those who have taken the time to write a review, I appreciate that very much, as your words do let others know that my work is worth their time and money. The next book (The God Game) is almost ready to go, just need to format it. I got the cover last night and I'm happy with it, Dane at has been very helpful and I like his work.

It will be released on the 10th of September.

Again, thank you all for your time, and I will be setting up a mailing list here very soon.

Portals of Infinity, Book 1: Champion for Hire

Well the new book is out! I got it released Sunday morning and so far have been very happy with the results. I had been waiting for the final version of the book cover, which due to an email problem was delayed a few days. Will have to make sure that doesn't happen again.

I know I should have written this post a bit sooner, like probably on the day I released the story, but this week has been pretty hectic. Actually the whole month has been pretty busy. I need to get my ebook artist working on the cover for book 2, which will be released on the tenth of next month, the day before I go off to the air races. I also need to sit down and start writing book 3! I've got it plotted, book 4 has a basic outline as well. My goal is to try and release around every 4 to 5 weeks, but I don't know how easy that schedule will be to keep up with. I suspect that by the time I hit book 4 I may have to slow down a little.

But for now, please read the book, and let me know how much you enjoyed it!

And as always, if you liked it, please please please rate and review it! Without ratings Amazon and the other booksellers will push it to the back of the bus, regardless of sales. Four and Five star ratings are key, and the more of those the book gets, the more Amazon will show it to people who are searching for something to read. Like it or not that is the way Amazon plays the game, and so I am forced to ask for your help. So please, if you liked it, rate it highly and say why (no spoilers!) and again, I thank you for your efforts!
