It’s been two years (!) since I published Eolyn in its second edition, as Book One of The Silver Web Trilogy. Book Two, Sword of Shadows, came out later that same year, and Book Three, Daughter of Aithne, was released last summer.
All in all, we’ve had a good run. While sales have been modest, the books have received strong editorial reviews and enthusiastic reader response. Daughter of Aithne has been shortlisted for the 2017 OZMA Award for fantasy fiction; the winners will be announced next month. (Fingers crossed!)
This being my first venture into self-publishing, I chose for the sake of simplicity and the size of the market to tie my ebooks exclusively to Amazon, listing all three titles with KDP Select and including them in the Kindle Unlimited program. For the most part, KDP Select has worked to my benefit, but for a variety of reasons, I’ve decided in recent weeks that it’s time to expand the reach of The Silver Web and make the trilogy available to a wider market.
So this month, Amazon’s exclusive claim to the ebook edition of Eolyn, Book One of The Silver Web, will come to an end. Starting March 22, Eolyn will be available in multiple ebook formats worldwide, including Nook, iBooks, and Kobo. Preorder opportunities should be popping up soon – I’ll post those as they become available. As we head into summer, Books Two and Three of The Silver Web trilogy will follow Eolyn’s path; those release dates will be announced in forthcoming posts.
That’s the big news for now. I hope you are as excited as I am!
