Welcome to the end of 2019! We’re so glad you could make it. We managed to publish one book in 2019, our paranormal thriller, The Oculars. Other than that, little progress was made on our other two works-in-progress. Today, we just finished up an impromptu Litzophreniacs meeting to discuss our plans for 2020. We know that changes need to be made if we are to see any progress. Here’s the plan…
Anne will take over the writing on our crime thriller, Enoch. She was the main writer from the beginning and it has not been a good fit for Nancy. Anne has also been floundering on the third New Mother Earth book, Servants of Gaia. While she did manage to add a tiny bit of new material, it was difficult to work on and it seems like a better choice to set it aside for the time being. She hopes to pick it back up after her brother Eric finishes his course of study in March.
Nancy will be focusing her efforts to a brand new project, working title, Jack. Jack will be a paranormal horror novel based in our fictional town of Riverside. It will be a standalone novel but will include cameos from some of our favorite characters. She’ll jump into the new project at the start of the new year.
We have also decided to disenroll all of our books and short stories from Kindle Unlimited. We have seen no uptick in sales nor books read, despite running numerous discounts and promotional giveaways on Amazon. The algorithm is not in our favor. We will keep our books available on Amazon but we will also be adding them to Smashwords, and maybe a few other sites that look promising. Sales have stagnated and we need to shake things up in an increasingly saturated indie book market. We’ll let you know when we go live on the other sites.
We’ll continue to update the blog, hopefully back to weekly posts. As always, we’ll focus on our literary doings. We appreciate you all sticking with us. We wish you all the best in the coming new year!
Anne, Nancy, and Eric
