Want to edit a large PDF for free? Here’s how…

Last year, I updated the cover of my first book to match subsequent volumes. It went from this….to this: Matchy, matchy… I happily uploaded my new cover to Amazon KDP print and ordered a handful of author copies. When they arrived, I realised that I also needed to update the cover designer attribution on my […]

#BookBubFeaturedDeal – sharing my figures

I always like reading about other people’s experiences with marketing, and as a result I’ve always been happy to share figures from my biggest sale of the year. Christmas seems to be bumper sale time for me, so I regularly organise a bunch of promos, even if I don’t get a BookBub Featured Deal. I […]

Best Laid Plans… #BookBub #Internet

For my first post of 2022 I want to start by thanking all those who helped to make the launch of THE PRINCE’S HEIR my most successful book launch to date. I planned well ahead for a 0.99c sale on book #1, THE PRINCE’S MAN, and booked a week’s worth of promotions – 10 paid […]

#GuestDayTuesday – The Prince’s Heir by Deborah Jay

Thanks to Marcia for hosting my release day!

Only one week until THE PRINCE’S HEIR releases #EpicFantasy

I’m genuinely, truly excited about this one. It’s the first time I’ve completed a series, and from being daunted by the challenge of having to wrap up all the threads in satisfying ways, I’m chuffed with how it’s turned out – huge thanks to my subconscious, which somehow came up with all the answers! It’s […]

And here they are: #coverreveal for THE PRINCE’S HEIR and the re-covered PRINCE’S MAN #epicfantasy

Without further ado, here’s the gorgeous new cover for THE FIVE KINGDOMS book #1, THE PRINCE’S MAN I still love the original cover, but once book #4 is released I will also be putting all four together as a boxset, so they need to match. Besides, isn’t this new one gorgeous? And so to the […]

August bonanza book sales #EpicFantasy

Just a quick post as I’m racing towards the end of the big bang climax of The Five Kingdoms book #4, and I’ve started wrapping up the epilogue at the same time. So nervous about what people will say about how I’ve handled it, but this month was a confidence booster in terms of sales. […]

Ever considered joining or organising a multi-author boxset? #Marketing #Freebooks

I will admit I probably wouldn’t consider arranging one of these myself just yet, but when a prolific and successful author I follow offered the opportunity to five other authors to apply to join her in a boxset venture, I put THE PRINCE’S MAN forward right away. The lady in question, Australian author Patty Jansen, […]

UK or US English – does it bother you either way?

I am a UK author, and I write my books in English – I don’t like to qualify that by calling it ‘UK English’ because in my books that’s a redundancy. I hope that doesn’t offend my many US friends. My reason for raising this, is that I often see discussions between UK authors about […]
