e-books $5.99

4 September, 2020

How many of my larger e-books have you bought and read so far?

Most of my e-books are 30,000 words or less and are therefore priced around $1.99. However, I do have some longer volumes available and they are priced accordingly.

So, if you’re considering treating yourself this autumn to a new read, why don’t you try one of my longer novels?

Dragonscale Leggings is just $5.99 and if you enjoy fantastical humour, then this is the one to buy.

“We have a combination of great storytelling and great characters. Dracomagan is a kick ass 21st-century gal who winds up in a land of Arthurian legend with the job of being a dragon slayer. But she doesn’t let this get in her way, and goes about her business with a blatant disregard for the rules of the day and with a witty sarcasm that often had me laughing out loud.” E Baxter

If you prefer a bit of romance mixed in with your fantasy reading, why don’t you give the Isu Magan books a try? There are two volumes, Vintrig’s Kingdom and Vintrig’s Throne and they’re $5.99 each.

“I enjoyed this book from the very first read. With a good mix of realistic and fantastical elements, and a gripping, at first gritty storyline, the puzzles first presented in early chapters are resolved in the plot in a way that shows rather than merely tells! Four thumbs up!” Troy

And if you’ve already read these volumes and want to know more, sign up to my Newsletter to get a free story about Dracomagan every month, or, if you like a more in-depth view into an author’s life, become a supporter at Patreon!

And, if you like looking at pictures, both the Dracomagan and the Isu Magan tales have a board of their own on my Pinterest account at Otherworld!

Do you like to buy cheap books?

If you do, I have some excellent books that I’ve published myself. Each of the books featured in this post costs just $1.99 / £1.99 or less.

The Essence of Thyme

The Rusalka Ritual & Other Stories

Xmas @ Camelot II

Insides

My Mythology

Silver Fire

Ambassador

An Ancient Song

Olin Heon

If you enjoy reading my posts, I would love it if you could buy just one of my books today. These are the cheap ones. There are more expensive ones (up to $5.99 / £5.99) which you can read about at My Books.

Just because they’re cheap does not mean they’re rubbish. Each of my books is unique and different. I don’t write to a formula. I write from my imagination. If you like quirky and off-the-wall, you’ll enjoy my writing.

Go on! Give these books a go. They’re not going to break the bank! The Kaerling e-volumes are currently 99c – until 1st May 2020! (They’ll be going up to $1.99 in May!)

And, if you enjoy my writing, please leave a positive online review!

Much love

This is a short post about Reviews.

When I read reviews about a book/film/product, I only ever read the 4 and 5 star reviews. I never read anything lower. Why?

I work in the hospitality industry and have discovered that people who leave 1 star reviews or who complain a lot in reviews, have issues. Sometimes they have unrealistic expectations. Sometimes they bought the wrong product (eg a small B&B room instead of a luxury spa hotel spa) and don’t like it.

Having survived cancer, I believe life is too short to waste my time on reading complaints that often are irrelevant to the product I’m buying.

When I read a review about a book, I want to know why the reviewer enjoyed it. I’m really not interested in story and character arcs. I read a lot of books that don’t conform to accepted ways of telling stories (JRR Tolkien and Patrick O’Brien for instance) so I don’t need to know if someone else found these things important. I want to know if it’s a page-turner or has an unexpected plot twist!

And these are the kinds of reviews I’m looking for for my own novels. Can you help? Silver Fire is a FREE download. Why don’t you start with this and post your review on Amazon or Goodreads? You never know, I might find your novel and read and review it myself!
