Chaz Interviewed by Marcie Turner

Recently, Chaz was featured over at Marcie Turner's To Read or Not to Read blog. The article covers writing, characters, illustration, comic books, and more. Marcie seems very open to showcasing new writers and doesn't just ask the same old set of questions to everyone - if you fancy, drop her a line. Sure she would love to hear from you.

You can read the whole Question & Answer feature here.

Freebies and Promotion: A Few Thoughts

So our recent experiments with Amazon Kindle's free promo service has come to an end - wherein we offered most of our Kindle novels and comic books for free for a limited time to see what kind of effect it would have on sales.

Boy, were we overwhelmed! - shifting over 700 copies in only a few days, and also securing our first ever 'sales' in foreign territories. In fact, we reached out to all of the Amazon European sister sites: .de, .es, .it and even .fr all accounted for a significant number, though it's fair to say that they were mostly our comic books, rather than the prose works - graphic works will always cross cultural boundaries better than the purely written word, although quite what they may make of the peculiarly British humour of Arf and Mo is anyone's guess...

It's been an interesting time, in which we saw our books briefly chart very high on the Amazon Free Kindle lists, with our comic books both reaching the top spots in all their categories. Seeing our books at the No. 1 ranking was quite a buzz. And as a 'loss leader', our free offer for Maranatha has already sparked some interest in the pay-for prequel, Venus in Saturn. It's also made Chaz think about the idea of producing something to be offered permanently for free on the Kindle store - perhaps a collection of shorter works, or a novella of some sort (he does, after all, have a good many ideas of all sorts floating around the place).

In short, it's been a fascinating experiment, and opens up a very interesting future for FWB and its products. You may recall a post on this very blog not all that long ago where Chaz basically discounted the whole idea of the Kindle book reader as having any real impact on the publishing world any time soon - well, he's more than happy to revise that view now, seeing how times have well and truly changed!

No doubt we'll continue to pick up the long-term effects of this promotional period for some time to come. Interesting times, as they say.

More Summer Freebies!

As part of the current Fenriswulf Books 'summer of Freebies' (i.e, testing the waters with Amazon's new promotional services), we're giving away - for nothing - the first issue of Arf and Mo in Kindle format. The promo lasts throughout 8th July and ends on the 10th at midnight Pacific Standard Time.

US readers can grab their copy right here.

You can also pick up, for a limited time only (throughout the 8th and 9th July), The Black Flag graphic novel for exactly £0.00! Don't delay - snatch one up today!

Over the last week or so we've given away hundreds of copies of 'Maranatha' and Episode 1 of 'Sundancer's Regret' - even managing to shift our very first foreign copies on Amazon.de! - so it's been a rather interesting exercise in getting our material out there.

Another Exclusive Amazon Kindle Freebie: 'Maranatha'

Well, because the free Amazon Kindle promo of 'Sundancer's Regret' went down such a storm, we've decided to do it all over again, this time with the first ever Fenriswulf book release - 'Maranatha', the second volume in the 'Trinity Chronicles' series. Catch the freebie online between Thursday Jul 05, 2012 and Friday Jul 06, 2012 (that's Pacific Standard Time).

UK readers can grab their copy right here.

No Regrets...

Last weekend, we offered the first episode in the 'Wish and the Will' fantasy series, Sundancer's Regret, for free on Amazon. Never having been totally convinced of the value of freebies and giveaways in a world where digital products are so cheap to begin with, we nevertheless thought we'd give it a go and see if it provoked any interest. During the brief promo period, we shifted dozens upon dozens of copies, which pushed Episode 1 briefly into the top 40 for the Epic Fantasy category!

In fact, it seemed to attract so much attention that we're planning to do it all over again with one of the books from the 'Trinity Chronicles' series - either Maranatha or Venus in Saturn. Currently Amazon seem to be having some serious problems with the KDP portal, or we would have launched the new promo already by now. Watch this space, as they say...
