Publishing and Unpublishing

It’s been a while since my last update. Writing has been slow and difficult, but with some recent submissions made, hopefully I’ll have some publication news for you soon.

My first bit of news is that I’ve temporarily withdrawn Scar On The Sky from publication. This novella is particularly close to my heart, but it’s clear the book needs reworking. Gerwyn will undergo a name change, and the story will be developed further and lengthened. There are two more novellas planned in the series, so I intend to re-release when the next book is close to being ready. At this stage the Rockington series will be ready to grace your shelves sometime in 2019.

As some of you may have heard, Amazon is merging CreateSpace into KDP. Until now, I have been producing my paperbacks through CreateSpace, but this decision will mean any future titles I publish will have paperbacks printed by another company. The problem is that KDP will not provide Australian authors with proof copies, nor with author copies. Amazon (the parent company) is refusing to sell anything to Australians unless it’s through their Australian retail site. This means to obtain a copy of my own book, I would have to make it readily available for sale and then buy it through a retail channel. Not only is this significantly more expensive, but it also means the book would be available for purchase before I got to check the appearance and quality. On screen proofing is not perfect. At the very least, cover images can appear quite different when printed compared to how they look on a screen. The existing paperbacks will remain printed through an Amazon company for now, but other factors might see me move them elsewhere in the future.

I had hoped to bring you a 2018 new release by now. Rest assured I do have a number of projects in development, including plans for a short story collection. If you’ve read and enjoyed any of my titles, please leave a review somewhere. It will help motivate me to keep writing. Even a single sentence is enough!
