I'm #1! (Kind of)

Don't know how many people who read the enovels actually come visit, but according to what I see at Smashwords, 'The Sisters of Jezebel' is the top downloaded enovel in the Fiction-Christian-Futuristic category.

I would like to sincerely thank everyone who has downloaded and read 'Sisters'. I hope you check out 'The Eyes of Christ', too.

Smashwords link to 'Eyes of Christ'

Both will be available at Amazon soon, and I hope to have 'Fleet's Crucible' available in February.

Getting With Amazon

Have just about finished getting 'Sisters' ready to submit to Amazon. Going to run it through the Mobi creator and see how it looks. Then I'll do the tinkering needed for 'The Eyes of Christ'.

And after that, finally, finish the final proofing for 'Crucible'.

Google eBooks, and Christian writers forums.

Will be looking into Google's ebook programs, and have located some Christian writer's forums with an eye toward improving the marketing of the Fleet enovels.

Also been tinkering with the notion of a YA series, a set of mysteries that would be a more Christian version of the Hardy Boys.


Amazon Kindle Publishing

I am going to set aside 'Fleet's Crucible', yet again, and tinker with the formats of 'Sisters' and 'Eyes' and submit them to Amazon.  Heaven knows when Smashwords is going to get back together with Amazon.


The Sisters of Jezebel Downloads

'Sisters' is now approaching 400 downloads. Free downloads, but that's 400 more than nothing.

'Sisters' Reviewed

Got an anonymous 3-star review for 'The Sisters of Jezebel' on Barnes and Noble. Called the story 'muddled', and complained of grammatical errors that I couldn't find when I did a re-check. Did discover that I tend to over use 'There was ...' and 'There were ...'. From now on a final proof will include a special 'FIND' of the phrases to see if I can make the sentences more active.

Interesting of how a critique of so little substance still led me to something that needed improvement.

Amazon Kindle Publishing

Since Smashwords still haven't worked out their deal with Amazon I am going to go direct and publish the e-novels through Amazon's Kindle publishing program. I've started tweaking the format to better fit Kindle.
