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 hlgstrider@gmail.com. I am interested in both honest critiques and any social media shout outs  you might be able to give my work in advance.
