I don’t usually pop into your inbox on a Friday, but I wanted to update you on a few things. First off, thank you for taking our poll last week.
The minute we got one vote, I swung into action. And on Monday, I might have the cover to show you for our Christmas adventure (in poems)!
(When I say ‘I’, I mean Ran, son of Sarn, the quiet Curse Breaker.)
I also stopped by tell you about a FREE & 99 cent Weekend Sale of some of the books that participated in the Self Published Fantasy Blog Off this year.
300 books entered. 10 rose to the semi-finals and one will win.
This year, we entered Curse Breaker Enchanted, the first book in the Curse Breaker series. We were one of the 290 books cut in round one, but we lasted almost until very end of the round, so we’re proud of that and grateful to the judges.
The contest is driven by the judges’ taste in books. What doesn’t resonate with one judge may become your new favorite book. Some great books were cut in round one along with us, so we’re in good company.
And you can grab some of the books that participated in SPFBO #9 on sale this weekend:
We might not have conquered the SPFBO 9 contest, but we are crushing our other goal, and we have you to thank for that!
At the end of July, we set off an ambitious quest and invited you to come with us. What was that adventure?
Help us give away 3650 copies of Curse Breaker Enchanted
(This book →)
We asked you to help us give away 3650 copies of Curse Breaker Enchanted by Feb. 22, 2024. That’s 1 copy for every day since we lost our first fan, the deceased sister of our Scribe) 10 years ago.
And you said yes, I’ll come on this adventure! I’ll help you achieve this.
To date, we’ve given away 3452 copies! That’s 94% of our goal!
Thank you so so much!
You are truly amazing and I’m grateful you’re a fan and subscriber. Thank you so much!
We just need to giveaway 198 more copies by Feb. 22, 2024. And I know we can reach that together since Curse Breaker Enchanted is part of the SPFBO 9 sale .
Please keep sharing our books and talking about them on social media! It’s working.
Just a quick reminder, if Curse Breaker Enchanted isn’t free on your Amazon store. Just head over to BookFunnel and download it there.
We’ve argued with that store for months but they will not make it free for all countries. They keep saying things like ‘they reserve the right to price match at their discretion…’ and then they deny our request.
It’s the same situation for His Angelic Keeper #1. We have links to download both books from Bookfunnel on our website for that reason.
It’s annoying, but Amazon holds all the cards when it comes to their store.
I’ll see you on Monday, hopefully with a cover reveal and some details about how you can get your hands on our first Christmas adventure.
Until then, have a great weekend!
