Update on my self publishing adventure & blogs I've featured on

Hiya everyone I thought it was time for an update.

I've now received 7 positive reviews on amazon Yippee!!! My average is 4.5 which is amazing.

Unfortunately sales are slow and I'm not sure if I'm just not reaching people, the price or my book blurb. What do you guys think?

I've decided to drop the price of Origins in the hope that if people buy that they will be more inclined to buy The Awakening which is my main aim. Origins will be $0.99 but I'm just waiting for amazon to update it. I'm not sure what it will be in £'s yet but I'll let everyone know asap.

It does seem to be quite difficult spreading the word and also pretty time consuming.  I find trying to advertise myself and The Awakening harder than writing a book ha ha!!! but I always knew it would be a slow start so shall persevere.


I've now been featured on a few blogs and have just joined Twitter you can find me at https://twitter.com/booksemmajones
