One Month In

Child of the Knight is one month old!

So far so good. The reception to Child of the Knight has been very positive. No, not a bestseller... yet. But very positive feedback and some very nice reviews. As of today CotK has seven five star reviews on Amazon and nine out of ten of its Goodreads ratings are fives. The one four on Goodreads included a very nice write-up, so no complaints there!

I know the average will fall over time. The earliest reviewers all appear to have come from readers who were expectantly awaiting the sequel to Eternal Knight. The positive sign is that most readers appear to like Child of the Knight even more than Eternal Knight.

If you are a reader, please consider writing a review on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Apple, Smashwords, Goodreads, or wherever you made your purchase. And tell a friend! Novels succeed on reviews and word of mouth. Especially independent novels like CotK.

One very supportive reader, Chris Verwijmeren, took the time to send me this awesome photo:

Chris is a very knowledgeable archer and he's given me a lot of archery writing advice. In fact, he's become one of the experts I rely upon to keep my books realistic and believable.

Speaking of writing, I'm already at work on Book Three (as of yet untitled). I won't say that I'm HARD at work, as the beginning of summer is a very turbulent time. Lot's of swim meets and family travel make it hard to get consistent writing done. However, Book Three is entirely outlined and ready to go. It will not take three years to get this one done!

It has been a great month. I'm happy Child of the Knight has had such a good reception. A big THANK YOU to all my readers!

All my best,
