Year 2019 In Summary!
It was a busy year in 2019. I'm looking forward to more success in 2020.
I spent a great deal of time editing and proofreading my books. I decided it was time to release Paperback versions of my books, which required another round of edits for each book.
I released PB copies for The Guardians Series and Nanomachine War Series. Each series is a three book Trilogy, which are Space Opera Military Science Fiction stories. I believe they are very entertaining and have received 5 Star Ratings on Amazon.
In addition, I did the same for my very first novel, Alien Storm. This is a 400+ page novel about First Alien Contact that leads to a surprising conclusion. I hope you enjoy it. I giveaway free ebook copies on BookFunnel promos if you are interested.
I plan to release all my books in PB formats by the end of 2020. I do all the editing and proofreading myself to save money. I believe I find 99% of any errors by the time I release a book in PB. I use Amazon KDP for all my PB books. They look great.
I am currently working to complete my third book in the UTOPIAS Series. I decided to write a prequel I am calling Book 0, The Dark Years. It will cover the period from 2098 to 2099 when humans finally entered Cryostasis Sleep Chambers in underground bunkers due to the Climate Crisis. I am having a good time writing the novel since in pulls characters and events from Books 1 and 2. Of course, I am adding a lot of new information how everything began and the reasons behind it. I hope to release before summer 2020.
I tried a lot of new promotions, both free and paid, to promote my books in 2019. I am a bit disappointed it did not result in that many more sales in units or dollars. I believe this is due to the tremendous amount of Free and 99 Cent Only book sales in the marketplace today. I am also disappointed in the low response rate for Book Reviews for my books. Apparently, more work needs to be done to increase sales and reviews in 2020.
One new thing I will try in 2020 is to attend Book Fairs now that I have PB books available for sale. I already purchased what I need to attend my first fair. I just need to find some local library book events near me this year. If you hear of any, let me know.
Thanks to all readers of my Newsletters and participants in my BookFunnel Sales Promos in 2019. I hope to hear from you in 202o! Keep reading Sci-Fi if you are a fan.
I write science fiction stories. I hope you like them.
