The first reviews and ratings of The King’s Galley are out on Amazon and Goodreads. It’s gotten two five star and two four star ratings plus two very thoughtful and well written reviews. Thank you readers.
I always think that I’ve written a great book, but there’s no way that I can be objective about my creation after having spent a year or more conceiving, writing, and editing it. The ratings and reviews are the final validation of my effort.
More good news is that October was the best sales month ever for Magellan’s Navigator despite its first being published in December 2016. This was due in part to a significant rise in sales in the United Kingdom and Germany.
I’ve begun work on the sequel to The King’s Galley. It’s about Albo’s adventures as a galley captain in 1524 fighting against the Ottomans. Unlike after Magellan’s Navigator, I have no other writing projects or other distractions, like moving to a new city. I reasonably expect to finish the book within a year.
Again, thank you readers.
