Thank you, The King’s Galley Reviewers

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.

Mindfield Gets a Five Star Rating!

Mindfield got its first rating on Goodreads and it’s five stars! Thank you Gene Summers. It appears that Gene is an avid reader of space opera. I’m so happy that he liked my take on this genre in Mindfield. When I finish a book, I can’t tell how good it really is. It’s so nice to get some validation.

Incidentally, I hear many authors complain about how tough the Goodreads reviewers are. Fortunately, I haven’t found that to be the case. The star averages for my books on Amazon and Goodreads are about the same. My one wish is that potential readers could more easily see my Goodreads reviews, as Download has only one review on Amazon, while it has ten on Goodreads.
