Writing News from Archer’s Aim

Greetings to everyone! Just sharing a few tidbits of news for the upcoming weekend and the days ahead.

bow of destinyI recently came to a conclusion about The Bow of Destiny. I began to receive requests for print editions so it became clear that it was time to start planning to release that piece of the book. Looking back, I suppose I needed to have planned to do it sooner but I’ve been rather busy on some larger projects at home and on the day job. But now is the time to get to it!

I hope to have a print edition available by mid-August. When I have more details I’ll announce them but I’m seriously considering using Ingram so I might be able to finagle availability to book stores like Barnes & Noble, 2nd & Charles as well as locally owned stores.

I’m working with my cover artist to create a full cover. But looking at the ebook from a reader experience over my e-reader I was not satisfied with the book. As such, I’ve completed a second edition in which a number of issues have been cleaned up. This second edition of The Bow of Destiny is now available on Amazon and should roll into catalogs for other vendors from Smashwords within a few days.

If you’ve been holding out on buying a copy of the book, now’s a great time since it’s on sale for Father’s Day for only 99 cents. If you’ve been holding out for a print edition then it will be available in the near future.

I’m also working hard on An Arrow Against the Wind so it will be ready this fall. I’ve started receiving more requests for this book so it has a lot of priority. The White Arrow is also in progress at this time but it’s still in rough draft.

Also, I hope to write a few more short stories as companions to The Bow of Hart Saga so look for news about those too! Additionally, I’m also working on a blog series from my upcoming parallel series to The Bow of Hart Saga that I hope to get into ebook after The White Arrow. Last, I’m still working on a short story anthology to release as soon as I can. More details on these items in the coming weeks and months.

Have a great Father’s Day everyone!

  1. Good luck with B&N! I have a publisher and since she uses Amazon and createspace to print, in order to buy my book which is in their computer system, the customer has to pay for print on demand, then pay upfront for the book and then come back to the store to get the book. Needless to say no one is buying my book that way. When she used Ingrams my books were actually on B&N shelves. They also will not let Indie writers bring in their own books for book signings. Unless things have changed, they only take books you’ve ordered from your publisher and if they don’t all sell in a few months, they go back to the publisher who is now stuck with inventory. Go figure. If things have changed let me know. I did a few book signings for them. One way to get around this would be to check what book clubs are meeting there and you might be able to take your books to them or they can order themselves and then discuss your book with you.

    1. Here’s the link to IngramSpark for self-publishing. From there you have to get into the catalog and then into store catalogs. And they do have POD so that’s good too.

  2. As a self-publisher do you use Create space and or Ingrams? I don’t see the link unless it’s just ‘ingramSpark. With B&N POD was paid for by the customer as well as the book. I need to check the contact there and ask her if anythings changed. in NY B&N is the only major bookstore. Amazon has knocked the rest out of the ballpark. I used to sell a lot of books at borders. Our B&N is so huge and runs such sales on he best sellers that it’s tough to sell there at a higher cost than the best sellers.

    1. IngramSpark.com. They will distribute to everyone – Amazon, BN, etc. Createspace is exclusive so you only get to use Amazon which means no opportunity to get on shelves if you do well.

    1. Yes, there’s a learning curve with that but you can do it. Contact some of us in the club with questions…
