Although I love Ryan and Essie in a special way—and I think it is a special story, with very unique characters, regardless of how I feel about it—I’m going to retire it from the website. It will still be available for sale, but after examining my website, it doesn’t fit with the look that’s developing. I don’t have any other children’s books and children’s is a pretty specific market. It’s hard to overlap it with YA or adult books. I love to read children’s books, but I don’t write them enough to move the marketing slant in that direction, and Ryan and Essie appears obtrusive.
However, it would still be a great story for people to read. I’ll even keep the ebook around on Amazon for a while (I usually get rid of ebooks and go paperback-only for retired books.) It will also be on the Specialty page, replacing The Test of Devotion, which will give people a chance to pick it up for longer than the couple of days of a KDP free promotion.
Regarding free promotions and what I think about them (and how I use them) I’ll post on that later. The Test of Devotion also has some plans in the future, which I’ll get to as well.
And there will be more updates.
7 books published and 3 more on the way. Farmer's daughter, LOTR fan, loves to read rather than talk about reading. Always has time to finish her WIP.
