One of the reasons, I haven’t been posting as much in the last few weeks is because I was finishing up work on a new novel in what is projected to be a new series in a new world. I’ve just turned in the initial manuscript. The tentative title [because the title’s never final almost until the book is published] is Isolate, and I won’t know for weeks, if not months, exactly when it will be published, but it’s most likely to come out in late 2021 or early 2022. I’m also not going to say more until I’m through with any revisions or edits requested by my editor.

    Excited to delve into your new world! In the meantime, is there an ETA on Fairhaven Rising yet?

    1. Fairhaven Rising is currently scheduled for release in February 2021.

    I know there are probably several very valid reasons, but it does seem incredible to me that it takes SO long for a new book to be released. TWO years is WAY too long to wait. Like most of your readers, I suspect we want your latest work NOW!!

    1. The reason for the delay is simple — Amazon and B&N want to see a sales package for new releases at least a year before the release date, preferably including cover art and covers. They’ll bend that timetable for mega-best sellers, but not for others, or not often. Without that information they won’t commit to buying, and that makes it difficult for publishers, because hardcover printing has to be scheduled months in advance.

      1. Can you tell us how much of your income, in percentage terms, you make from Kindle sales?

        I understood that selling on Kindle if the book price in under $10.00 then you make 75% of that price. And of course you don’t need to hold stock on these editions.

        Just wondered if it would be worth your while to sell the Kindle edition earlier than your printed editions.

        1. I can’t give you that percentage without a tremendous amount of calculation. I can say that your 75% figure is three times the standard authors’ contract with publishers, in which authors get 25% of the net receipts. This means that I get more per book from hardcover sales than from even initial higher priced Kindle sales. So… no, releasing Kindle editions sooner would actually lower my income.
