As you can see from my website, the new versions of my novels, with new titles and covers, are now live. The ebooks already available worldwide on Amazon, Apple Books, Kobo and others, and are just starting to appear on Barnes and Noble. They're also available as paperbacks through Amazon, and I'll be looking at making paperbacks available through other sources shortly.
You can now get my short story collection Mutterings of Consequence and my original novel The Stream for free if you sign up for my mailing list. I'm not that happy with the signup UI on my website as yet, but it works, and once you've signed up, the same login lets you leave comments on any blog post.
So what's next? Currently, there's a temporary page that you're redirected to when you press the buy button with links to the currently available sources for each novel. Once everything is in place, there'll be a separate universal link page for each book, which will take you to the correct site for your location.
There's also a minor issue in that the Kindle ebooks (but not the other versions) currently have my name as "Mark White" rather than "Mark W White" which is precluding me adding them to my new Amazon author page, but the fix for that should go live within the next 24 hours.
Once that's all done, I'll start making more of a fuss about it on social media, probably tomorrow on my x0th birthday.
Then I'll be back to preparing to self-publish The Muffler's Ministry around mid-January, assuming I don't get any agent interest by then. One final read-through looms before Christmas, then I'll get it all prepared to push that button.
After that, I'll be working on the second book in The Mufflers series, The Muffler's Mission, although I may write another related short story first. Tentatively titled A Muffler's Recruitment, it tells the tale of how Colin Head first met Ashley Carter, something briefly mentioned in the first novel.
[Update 11 Dec 2020] Universal book links now live! Much better. Very impressed with Draft2Digital so far. Also now have my middle initial in the Kindle version. Still have two books missing on my Amazon author page, but that's now in Amazon's hands – why does it always need manual intervention on Amazon, where Draft2Digital have worked seamlessly elsewhere?
