Read the series for free from Scribd free trial link!

GET A TWO MONTH FREE TRIAL! I recently had a free trial to the Scribd ebook subscription service, and I love it so much as a reader that I absolutely had to make the Fae Unbound series available there.

Get it here: SCRIBD TWO MONTH FREE TRIAL

NOTE: You can still get a two month Scribd free trial, but my series is not currently available on Scribd. Enjoy your free Scribd months anyway! I love my subscription, especially the audiobooks, and I anticipate my series will be available there again soon.

Read the books free with a Scribd free trial!

You can read books from the major publishers from authors like Terry Pratchett and Christopher Moore (plus g-zillions more), listen to audiobooks, and read some of my favorite Indie writers including SM Reine and Michael Seimsen. The selection is really astounding, including lots of non-fiction from the major publishing houses. If, like me, you like that kind of thing.

Scribd has apps for your PC, Android, and Apple devices. You won’t be able to use it on a device that is only an ereader, but they’ve definitely got you covered for your tablet or even your phone.

To get the Scribd free trial, just click here and give them your information. You will have to give them either a Paypal address or your credit card at the time you sign up, so remember to make a note about when you need to cancel if you decide not to continue a subscription. I am a heavy reader, so the $8.99 monthly subscription price is a good deal for me. It may not be for you, but it is easy to cancel by accessing your account and choosing “Order History” in the Account section. There will be a link to unsubscribe at the bottom of the page.

After you sign up, you can find the books by searching for my name, Jill Nojack. Then click on the book cover and choose “Add to Library”.

If that helps you with your budget this month while still getting the books into your hand, my job here is done :-)

Thanks!

Jill

Wizards Wrath: I’ll be writing sooner than I thought!

Good news for those of you who are looking forward to the next Fae Unbound book: I’ll be starting the writing much sooner than I thought I would!

I’m not going to set a firm date, but I planned to start working on Wizard’s Wrath in April OR as soon as I’d sold 100 copies of Dragon Tender, whichever came first. To my surprise, after only 6 weeks of sales, Dragon Tender is at 70 copies sold, and I’m going to have to get to work soon. It takes about four months for me to complete a book, so if I start in January, the book may be available in the spring instead of in the summer.

So, why don’t I just write it, right? Well–I’ve been busy! In November, I finished writing the second book of the Bad Tom series, and I’m going to get back to working on the final copy of the first one (I’d stopped while readying Dragon Tender for publication and writing the second book.) The first and second book will be published very close together, and the third book will come along a little later, depending on how ambitious I get over the holidays. That way, if you like the series, you can get the whole trilogy within the span of a month or so. I like it when authors do that. I am completely an  immediate gratification person. If you’re a George RR Martin fan like me, you’ve also known the pain of waiting far too many times.

Some of you who are reading this may be going “Seventy copies? Really, that’s all the books she’d sold?” and thinking that’s a low number. However, as an unknown author who self-publishes, I am absolutely thrilled when anyone buys the book. It tells me they liked the one before it. Every single sale gives me a little thrill, and I don’t think that feeling will ever go away, no matter how many copies I sell.

Thank you for giving me that good feeling about what I do! If you celebrate anything at this time of year, I hope you have a great time doing it.

P. S — James looks nothing like that guy with the fireball above. But it was the only picture I could find of a guy with a fireball. And guys with fireballs are cool. Very, very cool.
