Turning Over a New Leaf

I hate certain idioms.

Anyways, things are going to be changing around here, but many things will remain unchanged.

  • The serials–Gregory Samuels and Sword of the Saints–will continue as normal.
  • Both books–Sagas of the Iron Hearts and Goliath Thunder–will become unpublished within a few months.
  • Sagas of the Iron Hearts will be thoroughly revised and provided additional content and thereafter republished under a different title.
  • Goliath Thunder will suffer similar treatment.
  • The Sword of the Saints book, which was nearly ready for republication, is going to go back under speculation.  Publication will probably occur more than a year from now.
  • There’s more, but this is the most notable.

I will be undergoing a very invasive rebranding effort, and all the content I’ve made so far will be a part of that very same.  Marketing strategies are changing thanks to the changing nature of online marketing platforms.

This is all very new to me, you see.  I certainly didn’t know what I was doing when I started, and with the changing nature of the various platforms available, the strategies I had been using had proven less and less useful.  This is exacerbated by the fact that I simply wasn’t selling books after the initial week of publication, and I couldn’t secure reviews to ensure readers that my material wasn’t a waste of money.  Traditional publishers have enough cash to simply pay reviewers to provide reviews of their product.  I simply don’t have that much liquid to throw around.

Anyways, this being the case, I basically wanted to start all over.  There’s no sense in trying to sell more books if no-one’s buying your already existing books.  So, I’m going to act as if I’m starting from the beginning aside from some very serious advantages I’ve accrued.
