Facebook changes…

It’s no secret that Facebook is using the people who use it to make money – it’s the whole basis of those ad filled newsfeeds that we all hate and the “boost your post for £” message that pops up when you run a page on FB (for whatever reason).

They also do all sorts of updates and suchlike in order to adjust things – sometimes this is for the better, sometimes it’s for the worse.

The latest one (apparently) is meant to stop clickbait advertising, false news, scams etc. Fair enough, but then again…

This post sums up the technical details as pertains to authors quite nicely:

So I’m going to have to change the way I interact on FB – be more careful with my wording and only post things like questions about my covers etc in my Fan Group, where they will only be seen by those of you who actively seek me out on FB… Or I can return to using my Blog more actively for such things – but again, I’d only be able to post links to the blog posts in my Fan Group.

If you’re interested in joining, my Fan Group (typing that feels so odd – I don’t think of myself as having fans of my work!) can be found at:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1111497778997568

I am the only admin, so I check the join requests myself – I haven’t yet turned anyone away!! I would set up a newsletter, but because I am not sure from day to day what I am doing and which book is going to be published next, they wouldn’t be particularly regular and I have no idea if anyone would be interested in having one turn up in their Inbox.

Maybe I’ll set one up when the fan group gets to a certain level…

WWWWWWOOOOHHHHHOOOOOOO!!!!!!

It’s here, it’s finally here!

*dances around the room*

TTATE Collection (1)

 

That’s right, THE TOWER AND THE EYE has been let loose upon the world of ebooks!!!

AND….

On Facebook right now, there’s a party going on! Yup, I’m having a launch party!!
*Can you tell I’m excited?*
So if you’re on Facebook why don’t you pop in to the party and see what’s going on…

PARTYYY!!!!

There’s a whole lot more in this edition of the book than there was in the separate ones; Blue Hour Publishing worked hard with me to enhance each book’s potential. There is also some brand new content  only seen by my editor and beta readers, so even if you’ve already bought / read the first four books, this one is worth getting!!!

So let’s take a peek at the new content shall we?

*grins wickedly*

A quick meal and several changes of clothing later, they were ready to go. Aranok kept glancing at Kalytia whose beauty shone even more in the tight fitting fighting harness of the Dark Mistress. Her blue dragonscale armour hugged her figure and the smooth faceless helm hid her own face completely, only her eyes were visible through a slot, making her allure all the more dangerous.

On one hip she carried a long coiled whip and on the other a wicked looking sword, its blade writhing like a snake moving through the grass. Her blue dragonscale tunic hugged her figure and fell over matching leggings which ended in spike heeled boots.

Kaltyia took a moment to check her sword and Aranook shuddered. Those spines on the back edge would make for a very messy wound and you could probably open someone’s throat with just the teeth on the hilt. He thought, trying hard not to cut himself on his own blade as he sharpened it. At least the sharkskin and wire will make for a good grip; you’d need one with the amount of blood using it is going to create.

“Where did you get all that?” the half elf asked.

Kalytia slid the blade into its sheath, the dragon headed hilt sparkling where the light hit the gems in the eye and teeth.

“I described the fighting harness of the women we… Loric encountered in the dungeon in Galivor to Eliethor. She had the leatherworkers make it and then she and a mage of Tyr modified it with some of the details from your report of the dungeon in Valdier and Kraaz’s information from Jinra.” Kalytia ran a self conscious hand over her body. “I’ve only worn it once, but it’s really quite liberating. There’s nothing to get in the way of quick movements and the Dragonscale stretches in a way that normal leather armour doesn’t.”

Joran grinned at her.

“If I weren’t in love with Julissa, you’d just have become a target for my affections.”

Want to read more? Well I’ll be posting excerpts in the launch party today or you can go pick up a copy – it’s on sale for the introductory price of £1.99!!

“The Tower and the Eye” should be available on all of Amazon’s sites…. please enjoy!!!!!!

What if…

… the internet imploded under all the weight of our information (books, profiles, bank accounts and so forth) and we were left completely in the dark about what was going on in the world?

How would you manage?

What would you do?

*grins wickedly and leaves the room*
