If you haven’t yet read my debut novel A Sword Into Darkness and all the awesome hard science fiction, military sci-fi, space opera kickassery inside, IT’S ONLY A BUCK ON KINDLE THIS WEEK.
And, SECRET, it’s totally, frickin’, no lie, gosh-darned FREE every day, all day if you have Kindle Unlimited!
If you have read it, now’s your best chance to gift it, or to move on to my next novel, The Mutineer’s Daughter, done with the great Chris Kennedy, and also full of awesome hard SF, military sci-fi, space opera, but ALSO including my growth as a writer, his deft wordplay and gritty ground-combat action, and a great coming-of-age story wrapped up in the classic tale of a father going to great lengths for his daughter, along with nuanced moral conundrums! Honestly, how can you NOT?
Go! Buy! Download! Read! Review! And Thank You!
Good wisdom from
Sarah Hoyt Amanda Green (CORRECTED – I originally misattributed this to Sarah since I found it on her Facebook) about the new Amazon / Kindle Unlimited royalty set-up. The old system over-rewarded short and episodic works. The new set-up awards pay-outs based on page views, so short works and novels each receive a fair pay-out based upon their length. Novels don’t get screwed over any more.
But some people see Amazon as evil and unfair, no matter what. I see a well run business whose business model currently aligns with my publishing goals, therefore they are my friend. Once that no longer applies, I’ll move on to something else. Until then, I take the word of anyone who says Amazon is screwing me over with a hefty grain of salt. Who should I believe? Random internet author paid by a third-party publisher whose profits are affected by Amazon’s model? Or the people that gave me tens of thousands of dollars for my pulpy fiction?
