‘The End of an Era…’
I don’t know if that’s somewhat more dramatic than it should be. I don’t think so. But it feels as though something huge is coming to an end. Perhaps that’s because it really is.
‘Meeting Each Other’ marks my first foray into the world of independent publishing and I’ve learned so much on the way. I’ve gained confidence too; something I was sorely lacking in those early days when I let Ileandra talk about my work.
Now, however, I have all six books in the series out there in the big bad world and now the compilation, all six stories, gathered into one volume with a bonus story included within. And this will be my first print release too. ^_^ Ha, take that Ileandra, you thought you’d beat me to print. :p
Remember a few weeks back I mentioned that a new lady was looking after the cover for this release? That I figured someone named ravenink had to be a good sign? Well look at what she made for me:
It’s beautiful and I’m so happy with it.
Yes, I know further down the line I’ll need to rebrand the other six books, but this is much more like what I need for people to know what they’re getting.
This is the same cover that will feature on the print version, though the rear side will have the blurb, of course, and the Smut With Brains logo.
Now at this point, I’d usually put up an excerpt or some other related treat, but not this time. After all, you know these stories now, you’ve been with me as I released them, and the bonus story is exactly that; a treat for those who purchase the book. But… I can tell you that when the print book releases I will be running a little competition and giving away a free copy. I haven’t decided fully on the details yet, hence the lack, but they will be here shortly, so watch this space. 🙂
