Whoa, Krista, just whoa. You’re trying ANOTHER new thing?
I am. Gotta keep experimenting with this whole marketing concept until I find a method that works for me. A method that complements my dry wit and borderline loathing of computers (I realised that when I take a break from my computer, my arm needs to be twisted to come back to it. Me! Who used to be such an internet addict and now can barely drag myself to check my Facebook account).
Apologies for the rambling. I’ve started doing this 15 minute free-write first thing in the morning to get the brain juices moving. They usually end up being this long stream-of-consciousness bit, and it’s hard to wrangle myself back into coherent thought afterwards.
Anyway – yes! A new method!
I’m sure many people reading this will have already read Evensong. It was my first published novel and has been on the market since January 2014, and free since… I think sometime early 2015? In many ways, it’s still the story of my heart, and while I am saving up to overhaul the covers and maybe do a quick edit, I love every character and every word of it.
If you have read it, there might be other people who have not, so feel free to share this news in every forum, social media platform, or in a note that you slip under your neighbour’s front door while they’re watching some thriller film like Taken, so that when they receive the note, they’ll think it’s their trigger to take on a new mission, and assume that downloading my free novel is part of that mission (perhaps containing a clue to the next step in the puzzle).
Author Jeff Powell wakes up to find the impossible has happened. He is within his own novel—summoned into the fictional world of Feldall’s Keep by a spell he didn’t write. One the House enchantress hasn’t figured out how to reverse.
When the villain he’s been struggling to write reveals himself, unleashing waves of terror and chaos, Jeff must use more than his imagination to save the characters he created—and the woman he loves.
Trapped within a world of his own creation, he must step outside the bounds of his narrative to help his characters defeat an evil no one anticipated, even if he must sacrifice his greatest gift. In the end, he has to ask: are novels really fiction, or windows into other worlds?
Even if you already have Evensong, Instafreebie is a neat place to get all sorts of free offers from all sorts of authors. My hope is that it will be one more resource to introduce new people to Andvell, which would keep me motivated to add more to this world. There’s at least one more trilogy running through my mind right now, but who knows how this place of magic and distorted reality can branch out into new stories? I, for one, am interested to find out.
