Another month has come and gone, and I continue to be pleasantly surprised by a steady level of sales and rewarded by reviews and recommendations. To anyone who has purchased H.M.S. Valor, I thank you. To all of those who have been so gracious as to recommend it to a friend, an extra ration of rum for the both of you!
At the outset of this endeavor, I knew nothing about the Kindle Unlimited program. After months of growing page reads, I decided to investigate what Kindle Unlimited has to offer. What I can tell you for a certainty, every volume in the Treachery and Triumph series will be made available on Kindle Unlimited.
I am making steady progress on Revenge of the Drowned Maiden. Nothing has been sent out to advance readers yet, but, I am very excited about this title and I think it will be a great addition to the adventure! Release day is November 5th!
On the subject of works in progress, Amazon has announced a serial fiction program they are calling Kindle Vella. Short stories available as episodes. After some careful consideration, I’ve decided to make this venue the first home for my side project “The High Times and Adventures of Captain Grimes” connected to the Treachery and Triumph series, this will be the origin story of H.M.S. Valor’s Captain Grimes. Because who doesn’t love a good origin story? There will be more. I think Chibs’ origin story would be too good to not dive into, maybe Trina as well. Whatever serial fiction comes from these origin stories will eventually be compiled and available on Kindle Unlimited, as an e-book and in paperback.
Stay the course friends, Cal
