Innerscape – the last word :)

Pippi and her pillow..ahem I mean her dog

Pippi and her pillow..ahem I mean her dog

Just a quickie to say I’m going to raise the price for Innerscape, Episodes 2 – 5 this evening [Australian time].

Once the change hits – usually within 24 hours – the new pricing will be as follows:

Episode 1 – remains at 99 cents

Episode 2 – $1.99

Episode 3 – $1.99

Episode 4 – $1.99

Episode 5 – $1.99

If you started reading Innerscape but missed out on an episode or two during the Christmas madness, please nip in and grab whatever you’re missing while it’s still at 99 cents:


I will be compiling an Omnibus edition at some point during 2017, but I’m ready for a change so it won’t be any time soon.

Oh, and, if you were wondering about the relevance of the pic…there ain’t none; it just makes me happy. 🙂 Thank you for sharing this journey with me. I hope your New Year is full of joy and hope.



‘Free’ doesn’t sell books – and here’s what does — Matthew Wright

canstockphoto8443816This is one of the best articles I have ever read about marketing.




Survey : Only 1.52% of readers like science fiction

Q4 What is your favorite genre of fiction?
Mystery: 4.81%
Thriller: 1.97%
Romance: 81.02%
Science Fiction: 1.52%
Other: 10.67%

Those results come from a survey of 2,951 readers taken by Marie Force
[New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author]. As Marie Force is a Contemporary Romance writer, and would attract a lot of romance readers to her blog – and hence the survey – the results are not exactly unbiased. But they are still disturbing if you don’t write romance.

Not surprisingly, the most popular genre was Romance, and the most popular retailer was Amazon, however some of the other results were real eye-openers, at least for me. Apparently Twitter is not a very useful way to promote our books. The crown for marketing goes to Facebook. -sigh-

If you’re an indie author like me, you might want to read the whole article, especially the specific questions and answers, as that is where you will find the most relevant information for your own genre.  Taken with a small grain of salt, this is a great resource, and I highly recommend it.

Now I’m going to go cry in my coffee. 1.52%? Talk about feeling unloved. 😦
