Ana over at Read Our Thoughts Book Blog posted a nice review of Dragon Blue. She also left the same review on Amazon, which puts us up to 47, which I’m very pleased about. I’m off to a very slow start, but I feel like I’m doing a lot of things right. Hopefully readership will build with each new release and I’ll begin to see some nice progress.
I’m passing the 30K mark on Dragon Red today. I’ve been aiming for 50K for my books. I see a good percentage of books in the top shifter category in that word count range, with about half going quite a bit longer. For page reads, longer is definitely better. But writing longer lengthens my publication schedule. At this point I’m not sure which is better. I’m going to stick with my current plan of each book in the Xandakar series clocking in around 50K, though I plan to experiment a little with book 4 and possibly release a double-novel (Dragon Black/Dragon White) together. I also plan to release the series as a bundle and see how that goes.
