Audio Books

I’m excited to announce that I’ve signed a deal with Podium Publishing to have the Seven Isles made into audio books. They’ve already completed three of the seven and are hard at work on the rest. The quality of their production is impressive and the narrator they’ve chosen has a great voice.

You can get a pretty good discount on the audio book if you buy the Kindle version at the same time. Also, if you become a member of Audible, you get one free audio book.

Reishi Adept Update

I’ve finished writing Reishi Adept(Book Seven) and I’m in the process of editing now. I’m hoping to have it completed and up on Amazon by mid-September. While it took me longer to write than I would’ve liked, I’m happy with the result and I think you will be as well.

Thank You,
David A. Wells

Book Seven

I’m finding book seven to be more of a challenge than the previous six, maybe because it’s the last in the series. I’m nearly half finished and I expect the latter half of the book to come along more quickly than the first half did.

It should be available this summer, but I’m afraid I can’t be more specific than that because the creative process, at least for me, doesn’t adhere to a schedule.

Above all, I want to finish strong, and so, as before, it’s more important to me that I do this well than quickly.

Thank You,
David A. Wells

PS – Book seven will be titled “Reishi Adept”.

Book Six Release Date

I’ve had a number of requests for the release date of Book Six lately. The truth is, I’m not really sure. I’m writing it now and I’m happy with what I’ve got so far but it’s a long way from finished.

The title will be Linkershim, and I’m hoping to publish this summer, but I’m afraid I can’t be more specific than that.

Book Five and Other Things

First, let me say I’m sorry for neglecting my website for so long. Many of you have said very nice things about my books and I’m grateful that you’ve enjoyed them.

Book five (tentively titled Cursed Bones) should be available in December. Having said that, I’m still working on it and it’s far more important that I do it well than quickly, so if I hit a snag I may have to push that release date back.

I’m planning a total of seven books for this series and I hope to release subsequent books every six to nine months.

As for Nook readers, I’m sorry but I have no plans to release book four in Nook format at this time due to an exclusivity agreement with Amazon’s Kindle Select program.

Thank you again for your kind words and support. The Seven Isles has come to mean a great deal to me and I’m genuinely humbled that many of you have come to love this world as much as I do.

One a Day

So my book Thinblade has been on Amazon’s Kindle store for a little over a month now and I’m selling about one a day without any advertising and very little marketing. Not bad for the first month, although certainly not the kind of numbers I’m looking for.

I’m about a month or so away from releasing the second book in the series titled Sovereign Stone.

Finally Published

After working on Thinblade for over two years, editing, rewriting and then editing again, I’ve just published to Amazon’s Kindle store, Barnes & Noble’s eBook store and Amazon’s CreateSpace print on demand store.

It’s been quite a learning experience. When I started writing I thought that the writing would be the hard part. Turns out the writing is the fun part. The real work is in the editing. Then there’s the cover design and the layout and the formatting. A lot more goes into creating a book than just putting words on the page. But, it’s done, finally.

I’ve posted the first five chapters on this site for you to read. I hope you like them. If you do, I hope you’ll read the rest. I’ve worked hard on this world and Thinblade is only the first installment. I’ve already written the second and third books, although they both still need more editing before I’ll feel comfortable putting them out into the world. I’m working on the fourth and expect to complete the series in book five, or six … or maybe seven. All depends on where the story takes me.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my site. If you have any comments or questions, I’d love to hear from you.
