The Witches of Armour Hill: Switch is here! July 16, 2015 12:54 2 Comments

Switch is now available for pre-order on Amazon.com!

The ebook is available for pre-order, and will be released on July 20th - if you pre-order a copy now, it will be automatically delivered to your favourite device on the release day. The paperback edition is still in the works, but with the first print proof having arrived last night, I'm hoping to see it released before the end of the month!

You can also find Switch here, on Goodreads.

It's been quite the journey, and seeing these pages finally published is still a little surreal. Thanks again to everyone who supported my Kickstarter campaign, everyone who has supported me since it's end, and everyone who has loved these silly little witches just as much as I do.

Thank you.


Exclusivity - the grand question July 12, 2015 14:55

Hugh Howey, the lord and saviour of all us independent publishers, recently posed a very valid question regarding Amazon exclusivity:

"I could reach twenty million readers in the state of New York or one million around the globe. Which is the right call?"

And so, I have a question for my readers - where do you purchase the majority of your ebooks? For those of you using readers other than the Kindle - have you experimented with the Kindle reading app to read Amazon exclusives on your device? Or do you steer clear of Kindle titles altogether?

And of course, a question for my fellow authors - how many of your titles, if any, do you have enrolled in the KDP Select program? Do you see comparable sales from any other platforms on those titles that are non-exclusive? What are your feelings on exclusivity in general?

I'll be spending the next few weeks watching my sales very carefully, to see how things have changed since I completely removed myself from Amazon exclusivity. If I don't find a fanbase on the new platforms I'm experimenting with, I may very well return to the Kindle Select Program. In the meantime, I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Coming this summer! July 11, 2015 11:17

I am proud to announce that after weeks of careful editing, Switch is currently undergoing a final round of proofreading - once we're sure the text is absolutely perfect, the ebook will be available! I expect to see it hit store shelves before the end of the month, with the paperback edition soon to follow.
In the meantime, I've set up the Goodreads page for Switch - if you've been reading on Wattpad, I'd love to see some pre-release reviews. If you've been waiting for the published edition, you can now add Switch to your to-read shelf on Goodreads in anticipation!

Dream Come True December 2, 2014 11:55

Last night, I dreamed that I was living in the house from my most recent work-in-progress, The Witches of Armour Hill. An old Victorian mansion, this place has housed a witch coven for so many generations that their magic has leaked into the walls. I was wandering around the second floor (which is my mind, is the second floor of my grandmother's creepy old house, slightly expanded), in the dark, and the house was completely empty. I didn't even realize where I was until after I woke up.

I think I may be getting a little too involved in my story.

Thanks to everyone who has checked out my store so far! I know the shelves are a little sparse for now, but I plan to add my ebooks to the catalogue this week. Soon, you'll be able to purchase PDF, .mobi, and possibly .epub versions (I'll get back to you on that one) of all my titles, direct from my website =)

If you're a traditional reader, remember that paperbacks and chap books purchased from me directly are always signed, and are always shipped out with little goodies to go with them, like bookmarks or postcards.

Thanks so much for the support and encouragement I've been seeing from all my fans - I love you to bits, and you all deserve the world.
