I woke up this morning, and decided it was finally time to do it.
The first draft of Transformation, the final book of the Tamboli Sequence, is going well. I'm about a third of the way through, but I'll provide a separate update about that later this week once I've finished the first part.
As it's now a couple of months since I made my agent submissions, with no joy yet, I think it's about time I bit the bullet and self-published these first two novels. I'll make another push at trying to go the more traditional route once the Tamboli Sequence is complete, but I'm very happy with what I've written so far, so think it deserves a chance at an audience right now.
Just putting the finishing touches to the books for publishing, mainly a few graphical fixes and a little self-publicity, so I expect I'll actually push the button on Wednesday and it should be generally available by Thursday.
I'll let you all know when it's out in the wild at last.
[Update 20-Aug-2019 AM] The Kindle versions are now live! Paperback still in progress, hopefully will be there by the end of the day. Usually then takes a couple of days (and a manual intervention or two) for the Kindle and Paperback versions to appear on the same page, and then to be associated with my author page. Website now updated with links to the Kindle pages.
[Update 20-Aug-2019 PM] And now, the paperbacks are all live. I've manually added them to my Amazon author page, and updated by biography on their as it had at some point spontaneously reverted to an older version. The Kindle and paperback editions of the novels have separate pages still, rather than being options on the same page, but hopefully that will start working shortly. If not, then that's something else on my list for tomorrow!
[Update 22-Aug-2019 PM] Finally, after a manual request to Amazon support, the Kindle and paperback versions are all linked. So, that should be everything done. My books are fully live! Phew...
