Things are beginning to move fast on the History of Erâth, and I'm getting excited! The print proof of the book is on its way to me as I type this, and the eBook version is available for pre-order on Amazon, iBooks, Smashwords and more! I'm happy with the interior layout design, and I'm hoping against hope that I don't notice too many further errors when I read through the print proof.
Having said that, there are a few updates I wanted to make you aware of. I originally said that I'd be offering the History of Erâth as a free companion book to the Redemption of Erâth series. This is still the case, but I've had to slightly change the way I'm going about it. Because of the nature of Kindle Direct Publishing, I can only run a free offer if I opt for KDP Select. However, if I choose KDP Select, I'm prohibited from distributing the book through any other channels for 90 days, and I don't want this: I'd like it to be available on Apple's iBooks, for example.
As a result, I've had to choose the minimum price possible, which is $0.99. And while you can definitely pay $0.99 for it on Amazon or iBooks, I'm also going to be offering a 100% discount coupon to download the book directly through Smashwords. This will be available throughout October and November, up until The Redemption of Erâth: Exile is released in December.
In the meantime, The Redemption of Erâth: Consolation can still be yours for free by signing up for my monthly newsletter. I've only had a few sign-ups so far, and you're missing out on the start of an epic adventure. On top of that, the discount coupon for History of Erâth is going to go out in the newsletter, so if you do want to grab a copy of History of Erâth for less than $0.99, that'll be your chance to do so!
So go ahead: sign up, get a free book, or pre-order History of Erâth on Kindle or iBooks now! I'm looking forward to sharing the building of the world of Erâth with you all, and it'll give you some great insight into the background of the events set in motion in The Redemption of Erâth: Consolation.
