New year, new ventures: e-book formatting and pre-made covers

I’ve been neglecting my blog recently. First I was busy getting The Croaking Raven out, and then I didn’t have anything worthwhile to write about, it seemed. Here’s to mending my ways.

An erratic blogging schedule seems to have been the theme of the entire 2014 with me. I wrote twelve posts less than the year before, although to compensate that, I wrote a second blog too – which I ended up neglecting even worse than this one. Maybe I’ll pick up with that later.

I published two books last year, Her Warrior for Eternity and It Happened on a Lie, and wrote a third, The Croaking Raven, that I published the first thing this year. So all in all, a fairly good year. Income-wise, however, the year was worse than the previous. I try not to blame the Kindle Unlimited, but it’s difficult.

To counter the declining sales on Amazon, I finally put those of my books not on KU on sale through Smashwords – the first new venture of this new year. It took a few trials and errors, but now that I know how it’s done, I’m ready to share my skills with others.

Which brings me to the second new venture:

Starting from this day, I’m offering e-book formatting services. I’m sure not everyone wants to tackle with all the annoying details and differences that go into formatting files so that they convert to e-books the best possible way. I’m here to help. You can check my services here.

I’m also selling pre-made book covers. I love to create book covers and I have more ideas than I have use for myself – often in genres I don’t write myself. You might have a need for exactly the kinds of covers I have ready. Take a look at my selection here. And here’s a little taste of what you can find there:

So that’s how I’ve started my year. On top of this all, I’ve begun to write the next Two-Natured London novel to be published this spring. I’ll keep you posted. Until next time – a little belatedly – happy new year!
