Author Update!

We are a few days away from the two month anniversary for my first self-published novel.

The Ordinary Knight and the Invisible Princess: A Tale in Two Parts

So I thought it would be good to step back and look at how things are going, if only to illustrate how much of a waiting game self-publishing is. 

This is a quick statistical report, just the facts ma'am, and all that good stuff. 

Reviews on Amazon not from Family-1 
Number of Ebooks Sold-10
Number of Paperbacks Sold-4
Number of Paperbacks Gifted-2
Number of Ebooks Gifted-3
Total Profit So Far-Roughly $5

So none of those numbers look all that impressive (especially the $5 part), but hey, I know for a fact that my book has been read by people who aren't me, who may not even be friends or relations, and I've walked with a special "published author" spring in my step. 

I'm well ahead of schedule in my quest to get Dragon's Curse to the presses. I had originally hoped to have it available by next summer, but unless I decide to do some major overhauling (which so far I have not seen the need for), I think I might be able to have it up on Amazon by Christmas. If anyone is interested in an advance copy (in PDF form), email me at I am interested in both honest critiques and any social media shout outs  you might be able to give my work in advance.


  1. Yay! Congratulations you! This is definitely something to be grateful for :)
