The Next Stage; 100! (Bonus Entry)

It’s been a little under two months since The Next Stage released in Kindle and paperback form. Today it an amazing milestone.

It now has over 100 ratings on Goodreads, and every single damn one of them is ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

It has now overtaken Creatures with number of reviews and rating average.

This, to me, is a huge thing to happen and something that I never even thought would happen. When it 50 reviews and they were all ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ I thought that was amazing, but hitting 100 is phenomenal.

I mentioned in yesterday’s blog that I had started work on the second book in the series. I’ve done an outline, and I’ve already started writing -so far I’m up to just over 4000 words, so it’s slowly getting up steam. I think I’ve for a pretty solid story so I’m hoping it’ll follow in the footsteps of the first one and be something that readers enjoy.

Below are all the places you can pick up a copy for yourself along with the Goodreads page.

Amazon

Google Books

Apple Books

Lulu

Kobo

Thank you to all who have bought it so far, especially those that have reviewed it. I hope many more people will enjoy it.

Dopey Words

First off I would just like to apologise if this doesn’t make sense or I start to ramble. I’ve just been put on some stronger painkillers for my hip, and well I’m kinda spaced out.

I’ve spent the majority of the day looking into more ways that I can deliver my books to you, the readers. I’ve posted previously that they’re now available not only on Amazon but Lulu and Payhip too. I’m also working on both Google and Apple books, I’m just waiting for approval.

I’ve been trying to price up different options for the best way to distribute. So far, due to my available funds, my options are somewhat limited. But one option I’m looking at is getting a bulk order of the paperbacks and then selling them on through this site; I don’t know if people will want that, but it’s worth a shot.

Basically, a lot of this has come about because The Next Stage as been receiving amazing reviews and so far hasn’t got anything below 5 stars, and I want to get it to as many people as I can.

I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve reread some of the reviews because it still staggers me that something I created and spent so much time on, people are actually enjoying, and enough to write about why. It’s an odd feeling, but it’s a nice feeling as @HorrorPaperBack said earlier on Twitter, it’s bewilderfying.

I’ve not really done much writing this week due to being in pain, but I’m hoping I can remedy that over the next couple of days as long as this new medication helps…it’s undoubtedly doing something right now.

As more selling options come up, I’ll continue to update and let you know where they will be available. But for now, check the “Books” page of this site to get your copy from where they’re available now.

Oh yeah, and I’ve also updated the links on the home page below my photo.
