The Glass Bard is now available on Amazon. It’s free if you’ve got Kindle Unlimited.
The rules for self publishing are pretty simple.
1) Pay for a professional cover.
2) Pay for a good blurb.
3) Pay for professional editing.
I did none of this. I created the cover myself, from the artwork to the design. I am not unhappy with it and I make no apologies.
I wrote the blurb myself:
“The last thing Jack Daw remembers is falling asleep at his desk. When he awakens, he is trapped in the procedurally generated open world of a computer role playing game. Befriended by the beautiful runaway slave girl, Sai, Jack must use his ability scores, the luck of the dice and his knowledge of every video gaming trope and exploit he’s ever encountered to beat the game. If only he hadn’t rolled a bard.”
I didn’t pay for editing but I had my wife and my daughter look over it and I edited it again after they were done. Both of them are talented writers My daughter is a brutal, snarky editor.
I feel pretty good about it.
Please feel free to tell me what you think about the book or the cover.
