The Guardian of Threshold Released

Today my debut novel The Guardian of Threshold was released on Amazon.com ahead of schedule.

It’s on sale now on Amazon.com US kindle book store for $4.99, check it out here http://amzn.to/U66mZ9.

I had to decide things like DRM (Digital Rights Management) or no DRM, price in different countries, categories, keywords, etc… I opted for DRM free book because, I believe DRM hinders the user experience more than it helps the author.

Interesting enough, fantasy fiction is overpriced in places like Brazil. But, I believe I know why that is. Brazil like many other places are emerging markets for Amazon and they lack of content quantity and widespread adoption kind of forces content creators to charge more. Everyone’s got a theory, why I should be any different?

Perhaps, what surprised me the most was that clicking the final button on Amazon.com site in order to finalize the release took more time and courage than I’d imagined.

The release of The Guardian of Threshold couldn’t have come in a better time, with Christmas fast approaching, it makes a great holiday gift. Time to fill all those Christmas Kindle devices, so here over to amazon and get reading.

Book Cover Contest

I’m currently thinking about using crowdsource for my book cover.

I came across a site called 99designs, apparently for a fee, dozens of design artists design a book cover and I can pick my favorite.

I haven’t yet made up my mind but it’s tempting, assuming it works the way I think it works.

Here is the link in case anyone is interested in checking them out.

UPDATE:

I ended up using the services of 99Designs, the whole experience was fantastic and the end result was better than I had hoped for.
