The book 5 pre-order links for Nook, Kobo & iBooks are now live. See the BOOKS tab above and scroll down to Book 5 for all pre-order links, or just search for my name or Rohan’s Choice in the e-book stores. I’m excited to bring this story to you as a pre-order item. Hopefully now that we’ve gotten beyond the book 4 and its issues, future books will be available in a more timely manner. I’m looking at releasing 2 books per year. Hang on for more from Alexandria and the Nephilim!

I’ve been so busy with writing, I totally forgot and missed posting about this review when it first came out.
I hadn’t given much thought to Scribd and Oyster until recently. If you are not familiar with these services, they have been compared to Netflix in that paying a monthly fee offers the subscriber the opportunity to read as many books as they like. Having my books on Smashwords brought these distribution options over the last few months. As part of their deal with Smashwords, I received a free year subscription to Scribd. Will and I downloaded the app and immediately searched to find my books there.
I can’t help but think this is a good thing for indies as each avenue that opens up for us to get more readers should help us to build a fan base. I do wonder, though, what this type of thing means for books/ebooks in general. As I understand it, an author gets paid if/when someone reads over a certain percentage of a book, doesn’t seem like a bad deal. Not much different than offering a free sample, or similar. Would you be willing to pay a monthly fee to read books? If you haven’t read my books, I know they are on Scribd, they are also supposed to be on Oyster. I think both services have a free trial. I’d love to hear your thoughts about such services and I would certainly be honored to hear your thoughts if you choose to try my books this way.
I know summer doesn’t officially start for another 3 weeks, but as far as my ‘day job’, IT IS NOW SUMMER for me. This is good news for you and me. Summer is when I can be most productive in my writing. I’m currently in the middle of the 7th book in my Children Of Angels series. This also means I will have time to return and begin to edit the 4th book. I learned with book 3 not to set deadlines for myself, but I hope I will get the yet to be formally named 4th book completed and released for you by late summer or early fall. Hang in there, readers!
Now back to writing…
We have submitted the final edits for Book 3, IMMORTAL REBORN – CHOICES OF THE HEART. All that is left is to wait for the files to be approved and the third book in the CHILDREN OF ANGELS series will be available in print. Soon after that, we will start working on getting it into e-book format for those of you who prefer that. I expect to announce both within the next 24 hours or so.
One thing I’d like to mention is that the price for Book 3 ($23.95) is significantly higher than it was for the first two books simply because it is almost twice as long and I couldn’t have priced it lower if I had wanted to. I hope you will find it worth the cost when you read it. I do have a little more leeway with the e-book format and so since I’ve marked the first two down in most e-book channels to just $2.99, I will start book 3 out at $5.99. I hope that this pricing structure will make the price attractive to a larger audience than if I had kept with the original pricing on the first two. My goal is to get my books out to as many people as possible!
Thanks to everyone for the words of support and encouragement during the last few weeks as I tried to painstakingly proof and edit Book 3. It has been a massive undertaking. Also, know that while this book completes the original trilogy that I had envisioned, your support and feedback have helped to spur me on to write more books about these characters. The arc of the first 3 books can stand alone, but for those who want more, I will be working to bring you at least 4 more books in the series. Please do spread the word about the books as your word of mouth and reviews (both written and verbal) are all the advertisement I have at this time.
Thank you again for all the prayer and well-wishes that helped me get through the daunting editing process for this near 800 page novel. Happy reading my friends!
For a limited time I have marked the first two IMMORTAL REBORN books down to $2.99 in the Kindle store. I also marked them down at Smashwords which, with the half-off for Read An Ebook Week special, makes them only $1.50 each there.
Spread the word to any ereaders you may know so that everyone may take advantage of this short-term price reduction. Book 3 is coming soon!
