I’m suddenly very at peace with the world.
Which is weird.
I just got this wave of faith in humanity.
People change. Things change, sometimes even for the better. People can believe stupid stuff right now, but it doesn’t mean they’ll believe it forever. People really do learn.
And yes, I get that the opposite is also true. Some people won’t learn or change. Some things will just pretty much always be a problem.
But the fact there is that possibility for good . . . That’s amazing.
The House of Cabal volumes one through three are now available. It’s a dark fantasy series I’ve been working on for the past twenty years. Each volume is 45-52 thousand words (long novelas?). The series is fairly pulpy with plenty of sex, violence, and plot twists.
I know that the amount of people that have read the first two volumes is rather small, but I hope eventually, House of Cabal will catch on. In the next few months, I’ll do my best to promote the trilogy.
The first promotion will be volume one Eden free Thursday and Friday.
You can buy volume three HERE.
Tonight, I’m back to writing after a two-week vacation. It’s time to finish House of Cabal Volume Three: Orchard. This mostly means reading through the whole thing a few times looking for errors, as I’m not hiring an editor for this one. Gulp.
I’m not sure how long this will take, but I’m not rushing it. Still, you can expect a release this year.
I would have never released a book without hiring an editor when I was starting out, but this book is my sixth release, and I think I can manage to edit it myself if I’m diligent. Also, I did have a beta reader look it over, so it won’t just be my eyes on it.
Books are never error-free even with an editor’s help, but I would definitely recommend hiring one. And yes, I would hire one this time if I had the budget, but not quite enough people are reading my House of Cabal series to justify the expense.
Gentle nudge: If you’ve read either of the House of Cabal books, please review them. Volume two only has one review on Amazon. Thanks! Your help means a lot to me.
I’m not expecting to make a big splash with the release of volume three, but I’m playing the long game. I’m still working on ways for more people to discover the series and they will always be a part of my back library.
In other House of Cabal news . . .
I’m not a huge fan of the first paragraph of the first book. It’s definitely overwritten. I might simplify it a bit in the near future. I’ll probably also do a light readthrough polish of all three books before I release a collected edition sometime next year.
Well, I think that’s about it on the House of Cabal front. I’ll try to keep this blog a little more up to date going forward. Happy reading and happy writing.
Over the next eighteen days, I’ll be releasing the revised edition of The Forgiving, chapter by chapter, on a special website.
The revised edition of the eBook is now available in full HERE. The paperback will be available soon.
The first two chapters are already posted on The Forgiving website under The Book So Far… .
