Book Launch: Northern Survival on Sale for 99 cents

Northern Survival

To celebrate the release of Northern Survival, it’s on sale for 99 cents for seven days, starting today. I’m making September the month of intense promotions for this fast-paced read that I identify as fiction – survival – adventure – romance.

For this 7-day sale, my book will be mentioned in the following promotional newsletters, blogs and websites.

I’m waiting on a few other sites to respond. When they do, I’ll make note of them.

I’ll also make posts about the book and the sale on this website, my McGyver website, Quarter Castle Publishing website, the publisher’s Twitter account and my Instagram.

At the end of the Book Launch campaign, I’ll give a summary of the results. That will be October 6th. The only marketing site I’ve used before was eBook Betty, so it will be interesting to see the results the others produce.

From Friday September 4th to Thursday September 10th, Northern Survival will be half price: 99 cents. It’s available at:

Happy Reading.

For instance, I wrote two short novels last year, both under 70,000 words. They were not fantasy and because of advice from other writers and Amazon’s algorithms, I had decided to publish these and others of similar fashion under a new pen name. Of course, a new pen name would create a few challenges of its own, but I was prepared to tackle them.
