Smashwords coupon extension; Baker’s Wife, part three; part two’s sale

Just a quick note about three things.

First, the 100% off coupon for my works at Smashwords is going to remain in place until July 31st. So, if you want a copy of any of the books I’ve published at Smashwords, feel free to take a look and grab a, well, free copy. Freely.

Here’s the link to my profile page (you may have to scroll down to see the books): http://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/amykeeley

Second, part three of The Baker’s Wife is not what I expected it to be. I’m getting to the climactic part, the part where a bunch of action happens and everything is exciting and good gosh I’m already at 200 pages. I still have about 20 to write. Just a guess.

This is not what I envisioned when I first started writing it.

However, that’s okay. In fact, it’s more than okay because the writing, I think, is pretty tight, there’s three POV characters now (Krysilla, Hyaji, and a new character who has ties to Zhiv’s past), and I like several of the scenes.

I’m just not sure if it’s a part three of anything. Not in this form.

No, this is shaping up to be Volume 2 of the larger series. And that kind of sucks because I may have to change the title, and possibly the description. Not to mention, I may have to adjust the way I approach this book.

Either that, or I’ll just assume it’s going to be a monster-sized print book…if it ever sees print. (I’m hoping it will, but that may be a way off.)

So, yeah, nearly finished! But wow. Not what I expected to have on my hands. Happy, though. Really enjoying the story so far.

In line with this, I’ll be updating the Wattpad rough draft as soon as I figure out where this book is going to fit in the series (either part three of vol. 1 or vol. 2 all by itself). Shouldn’t take me long. Another week.

Finally, because I’m not sure if I’ll be able to post again right before the sale, part two is going to be free in the Kindle Store next week, July 16th through the 17th. That will end my time with KDP Select which means if you don’t have a Kindle or the Kindle app, very soon you’ll be able to purchase parts one and two from any major outlet.

If you want to take a look, here’s the non-associate link (meaning, afaik, I don’t get anything extra when you click on the link/purchase through the link/whatever): http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CF8GHU2

And that ends my time blogging for today. Hopefully, I’ll be able to get another post in before the sale begins, one that doesn’t involve me talking about sales. I definitely have some thoughts on the upcoming Ender’s Game movie that I’d like to publish. We’ll see.

Until then, have a great weekend!
