Now, on to the title of this post: Smashwords. I finally got around to uploading Defenders of the Sacred Land to be distributed through Smashwords. (really I had to wait for my 3 month exclusivity contract with Amazon to expire) So, if your friends who have NOOKS want to read my book then it will be available at Barnes & Noble for download as of June 13th. (Yeah, that's Friday the 13th muhahaha) Also, ipad users will be able to get it from ibooks on the same date. In fact, I believe it will be available through Smashwords for pretty much all e-readers!
Exiles from the Sacred Land (book 2 in the series) is still on track for a June 2014 release as well. (probably mid month) I have been seriously considering putting up the prologue and Chapter 1 on this blog as a teaser, but I am still undecided. I have made the decision that I am not going to put Exiles exclusively on Amazon for 90 days, but rather, release it through Amazon and Smashwords so it will be available for both Kindle and NOOK (and other e-readers) at the same time. Both books will also be available as hard copies as well.
I am going to take a very short break from writing between the release of Exiles and the beginning of book 3 to recharge. I do have all the names of the books now and here they are:
Defenders of the Sacred Land (book 1) Available now
Exiles from the Sacred Land (book 2) Available June 2014
Protectors of the Sacred Land (book 3)
Redemption of the Sacred Land (book 4)
Legacy of the Sacred Land (book 5)
There is also a prequel series that follows the life of Lady Shey from about 14 seasons of age to adulthood. I wrote the first book years ago, but retracted it to expand it from a novella to a novel. I will be releasing that series after the Sacred Land Saga. You will probably see the covers on this web site but I am not going to work on finishing them until the Sacred Land books are done They are titled:
Wielder: Apprentice (book 1)
Wielder: Novice (book 2)
Wielder: Master (book 3)
