Osric's Wand Series
« on: September 24, 2011, 01:12:54 am »
What an amazing two years this has been!

Archana has had over twenty one thousand visitors since we began this journey, and we have made some terrific friends from all over the world. Both The Wand-Makers Debate, and The High-Wizards Hunt have the honor of being semi-finalists in The Kindle Book Reviews Best Indie Books of 2012, and 2013 awards, and nearly cracked Amazons top 100! We have begun construction on a brand new website that promises to be a whole new way for our readers to interact with each other and the characters from the novels. Website visitors can look forward to an ever evolving glimpse into the world of Archana with exciting new content and perspectives!

 As always, we thank our fans for spreading the word about the series! If you havent read the books, we hope you will join Osric in his discovery of magics potential.

    Thanks John, I am usually very timid about this sort of thing. I guess if success is the goal, I need to step out of my comfort zone sometime... (sigh)

    At the top of The Writer's Cafe page, there's a sticky thread that says: "8 Essential Kindleboards tips".

    You may find something useful there.

    Forget your comfort zone! There IS no comfort zone.

    There's no crying in baseball, and there's no goshdarnn COMFORT ZONE at Kindleboards!  >:(

    Just snagged my copy, by the way.  ;D

    Thank you for the support! Woke up this morning to see our novel broke 10k in the UK. Good day so far, and now we just gotta keep it rolling. I have found more information in this forum that has aided us than I ever expected. I am sure you are not the only one to purchase from KB, but you are the first to admit it.  ;D Greatly appreciated.

    Jack-

    Welcome to KindleBoards and congratulations on your book and on the sales!  

    As you know, KindleBoards is a Kindle fan and reader forum.  As you browse KindleBoards, keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed in the Book Bazaar. (This is just our standard reminder. :))

    A brief recap of our rules follows:

    --Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information.  You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

    --We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

    --While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days.  Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then. You may modify the latest post to reflect new information.

    --We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link.  Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

    --Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows.  This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles!  Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post.  For information on more ways to promote here on KindleBoards, be sure to check out this thread:
    Authors: KindleBoards Tips & FAQ.

    All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum: https://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,36.0.html.  Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

    Thanks for being part of KindleBoards!  Feel free to send us a PM if you have any questions.

    Thank you to all who have purchased their copy, this has been by far our best week. There are only a couple days left in September, and then the price will change. Buy your copy before you loose the chance to save on our 80k debut novel!

    Now priced at $2.99!

    We are thankful for the support you all have shown us this last month. Ashley and I are still in the "experimentation" stage in regard to the price, and we are trying to find the sweet spot. With that in mind, we are placing Osric's Wand at $2.99 through the month of October! Thank you in advance for your support.
