Not every passenger reaches the destination they expect.

Life may not be fair, but not every sacrifice goes unrewarded. Even at your lowest point, in depths of despair, sometimes an unlikely saviour can be found. 

About the (marketing) Journey

This one will be released under the Urban Fantasy and Magical Realism categories, though I toyed with the idea of going a more thriller/supernatural way. I’ve gone a little crazy this time and will also be dipping my toes into the marketing side as well. I have a landing page set at up using ConvertKit to attempt to grow email lists, and I am looking into Amazon, Twitter, and Facebook ads. As part of this, I’ll be offering a sweetener (who doesn’t like free stuff?) by having the story free for the rest of July.

As part of this FREE period, the story will be available as a direct download from my website for those who don’t use a kindle. I’ll let you know how all that pays off.

From the creative side

The Passenger is different from my other recently released short story, both thematically, and in intent. It relates more directly to the WIP books, and it stands on its own as a story I’m quite proud of. It may be a little purple, a little heavy on the metaphor, but I am happy with it. I’m also releasing it to share with the world, not as a tool to investigate the Kindle publishing process. There is also a kind of trigger warning at the front of this one, so we’ll see if that has any impact on the conversation.

Urban Ritual was a cute little story, but the reason for publishing it was the publishing process itself. I needed to work out the kinks for myself in order to be prepared for the bigger works to come.

 

Urban Ritual

Urban Ritual should be available on Amazon this week.

This is a stand-alone short story that could be considered ‘plot adjacent’. It is set in the same world/city there is no crossover in the terms of meta-plot or characters.

This one was a bit of a Frankenstein publishing attempt. Initially, this was to be part of a collection having previously been published elsewhere, but I’ve had a change of heart. Think of this as an experiment in so many things, setting up my Amazon Author account, pricing, audience targeting, and most importantly of all making sure I’ve got all my formatting/publishing t’s dotted and my i’s crossed. If this is successful and doesn’t devolve into tears, I should be prepared for the much bigger conversion soon to come.

Wish me luck.
