Posts Tagged ‘relaunch’

I have actually started writing again on DRAGON AGAINST DRAGON. (I have to think of a better title, but the working title is fine for now.) Unfortunately, I also managed to tweak my back. Not badly, but just enough that I can’t sit for very long without it stiffening up on me. Which is probably good for my weight loss goal. And for cleaning up the back “bedroom”, finally. (It’s probably been about 30 years since anyone actually slept in there, and about 20 since there was even a bed in that room. More of a storage room, now, but in desperate need of organization.) Not quite so good for getting a lot of writing done.

Also a little progress on FIRE AND EARTH–but not complete progress.

I’ve done my part and updated everything I plan to change, but somehow it didn’t all make it through Amazon’s process. The e-book has the new blurb, but not the new cover. On the other hand, the print version has the new cover, but not the new blurb. I guess I’ll have to contact Amazon tomorrow and see if I can get that straightened out. I want to run a promotion before it comes out of Kindle Unlimited later this month, but not with the old cover.

Good news is that THE BARD’S GIFT may not need anything but a little adjustment to the back matter for its “relaunch”.

I want to add a sample chapter or two from BECOME: TO CATCH THE LIGHTNING, rather than the current chapters of DAUGHTER OF THE DISGRACED KING. THE BARD’S GIFT has more than a touch of Norse mythology and the BECOME series is inspired by Greek mythology, so that might be a good match for readers.

Not sure yet what, if anything, I’m going to do about a relaunch of DAUGHTER OF THE DISGRACED KING. It’s kind of an odd book out in my back list. I’ll probably go on to do some relaunch on the DUAL MAGICS series before worrying about that one.

Wow! It’s been a couple of weeks since I posted. Didn’t mean to do that.

Well, I have an excuse for last weekend. Something happened during what should have been an ordinary update and all of a sudden my computer forgot who I was and all the things I have set up to make getting to what I use most easy. Worse, much worse, it wouldn’t let me access any of my files. I spent most of the weekend correcting the problem.

Also, I’m finding Wednesdays just aren’t a convenient day to post right now. For the moment, I think I’ll scale back to Sundays.

Adding to the technology frustration, Amazon still hasn’t updated the new cover of FIRE AND EARTH.

I updated the new cover about two weeks ago, but it still doesn’t show up on the product page. Well, I still have to finish the new blurb and a couple of other things. Hopefully it will all update after that. So, I’ll try to take care of that next and then get back to writing the new project, working title DRAGON AGAINST DRAGON (though I hope to come up with something better soon).

So, the compressed work schedule is over, thankfully, but I haven’t actually gotten any new writing done–yet. At least not on the new project.

I have done a bit of rework on the blurb for FIRE AND EARTH, but not finished that yet, either.

However, it does now have a new cover.

Isn’t it pretty? Much better than the old one. Part of a soft relaunch for that book.

Still to do:

  • Rewrite blurb.
  • Add credit for new cover art
  • Add sample of THE SHAMAN’S CURSE to back matter.
  • Adjust keywords.
  • Arrange some promotion for March, while it’s still in Kindle Unlimited.
  • Remove from Kindle Unlimited and distribute wide.
