The Fenris Wolf Pack: Revisited and Now Released!

A few of you may remember this post from almost exactly 3 years ago when Chaz started work on his 'something completely different' title for FWB.

Well, finally the White Prince of the Hunting Ground is now out there on Kindle. Aimed at younger readers and taking advantage of the new Amazon age and reading categories, it's one of those projects that kept getting sidelined for other things. There is definitely potential for a sequel with Ciquk and his pack, but we wouldn't like to say anything more at this stage. We'll see how this one performs in the sales rankings first of all, and take it from there.

UK Kindle readers can get it here.

New Look for 'The Wish and the Will'

After attracting some unexpected interest in the Amazon Kindle marketplace, Sundancer's Regret: Part 1 has just had a makeover in the cover art department, featuring a montage of supporting characters and improved lettering and logo work. Following a few minor text revisions, it also transpired that Amazon's new cover art requirements had rendered the old cover obsolete, so Chaz came up with this higher-spec improvement. 

One day, some day, Part 2 may actually make an appearance but the conclusion to such an epic tale cannot be rushed...

New Tax to Hit E-Book Sales?

It seems as though the fact that ebooks are susceptible to tax, unlike their print equivalents, isn't enough for HMRC - they want to squeeze even more money out of readers (and gamers and listeners), according to recent tech news.

The full story was reported on the BBC Technology website, here.

Keep an eye on this story as it may suggest that Amazon, and other vendors, will be forced to increase prices.
