~ The Rosegiver revision has been completed and I'm happy to announce that the book is now available on Amazon.com and Createspace. This has been a long process, I've learned quite a bit while working on this book and I know I have so much more to learn but it's a great feeling to reach the finish line...finally!
I hope to do a giveaway on Goodreads in the near future. One thing I've learned, writing a book is challenging enough but trying to market it and purchase copies is another hurdle to overcome. It is expensive and you must make plans and adjustments along the way or else you'll end up spending far more than you ever predicted you would. Now that the book is 288 pages, I didn't take into account that the publishing cost would increase too. It is costing almost $4.50 for me to purchase one copy. I wanted to set the book's retail price at $6.99 but I can't even do that in Createspace. The minimum price they are specifying for a book of this size is $10.75, so, I am setting the retail price to that exact amount.
Another challenge for me, are the low ratings I've already received for the book. There is no way for me to undo what has been done. These were ratings given when I first initially published my book, which back then, was a novella of 192 pages. These low ratings, I believe, will affect how potential readers will view this book and in some cases, will persuade them to move along. I don't blame them, who would want to read a book with mostly 3 stars when they could read a book with mostly 4 or 5 stars. I hope I can undo some of this damage.
