Unfortunately, a long dose of seasonal bad health and equally lousy weather meant that we've not been up to much ourselves here at FWB lately. However, the New Year has brought renewed vigour and zeal for all things Wulfish!
We currently have a bunch of titles on offer for free on Amazon's Kindle - just search on our name (Fenriswulf Books) to catch the latest deals before they disappear, as they've been staggered over the past week.
We've just removed pretty much all of our back catalogue from Smashwords in order to focus totally on Kindle - apart from anything else, ebook availability elsewhere negates the ability to use the Amazon promo deals, which we've rather grown to like recently.
In more creative news, our epic Scottish satirical saga The Sword of Lochglen has come off the backburner and is now back in production, with work on Issue 4 well underway. It'll probably turn out to be FWB's final full-length graphic novel, so we're hoping to make it a good one...more info on that soon.
It's also interesting to note how the new regulations on VAT for ebooks has affected the pricing over the US and UK editions. A UK book may now cost £0.99, whereas before the basic price was £0.77. $0.99 was the standard tariff for US ebooks on the 35% royalty option, and now that has increased proportionately to $1.52 - meaning that a lot of those skinny little 'barely long enough to be called a short story' so-called ebooks out there are likely to be priced out of existence. The minimum pricing structure means, of course, that's there no difference between a 10-page ebook and a 500-page ebook, as both would fall under the same threshold for file size. I did always wonder about the viability of extremely short ebooks on the Kindle platform.
Anyway, hope 2015 turns out to be creative and exciting for all of you!
