Last week I announced a format change to The Sacred Land Saga. Instead of the lengthy 100,000 word novels I decided to write them as 50,000 word novels to accommodate Kindle Unlimited. Since Kindle Unlimited, the number of "borrows" has increased so dramatically that it warranted the change in format. Basically, the change ensures that I make about the same amount of money for my work that I did before Kindle Unlimited. I am not trying to glean more money from readers, I just don't want to lose money because of Kindle Unlimited. That being said, I do plan to release a "Book 3" in the same 100000K format as before so my current fans do not have to deal with the format change if they don't want to. I will release part 5 and part 6 as they are completed but if you want to wait a little longer, you can buy the book (cover at the side) as book 3, just as you could do with book 1 and book 2.
In the next few weeks, I will be releasing Book One of the Lady Shey trilogy, Wielder: Apprentice. It has always been in the 50,000 word format and each book in the trilogy will be a complete short novel with an ending to the main conflict of the book. I have thought about adding content to each of the short Sacred Land novels so that each 50000K novel has a clear resolution to the main conflict but I hesitate to do this because of the thousands of readers who like it the way it is. It would force readers who have already read the first books to buy new books for the new content and I don't want to do that unnecessarily.
I invite your thoughts, send me a message through the contact form above if you think I should add more content to the short Sacred Land novels "Defenders, Vindicators, Saviors, and Exiles" to give them clear endings and give away a few more answers to the questions in the plot, or should I just leave them alone. I am good either way.
