I just wanted to give everyone a quick heads up about book 9 being split into two books,
The first half will be the book 9 that you’re currently reading, and book 10 will be the second half that I hope to have completed and out within a month or possibly two. That’s because book 9 was nearly complete when I discovered an issue with releasing longer books on Amazon as a self-publishing author.
When releasing book 5 of The World in German, I found out the hard way that Amazon only allows a self-published author’s paperback book to be 828 pages long. The only way I can counteract the restriction is to start producing shorter stories in the 400 to 500 range, which I would say is still a very large book for the litrpg/gamelit genre.
In the future, I will be able to plan a better-balanced story but this won’t work for splitting Book 9. The story is nearly completed so I’ve just decided to split the book down the middle as closely as I can. This was the best compromise that I could think to come up with. It also gives everyone a solid story to read right now which I thought worked out pretty well.
The good news is that this change will allow me to start releasing new books every three-to-four months. The bad news is that these stories won’t always be a full day. It will depend on the detailed action going on within the story arc at the time. The bigger battle scenes when Star is away from BrokenFang Hold will be more stretched out between multiple books, while at other times, Star will be exploring new locations in The World that will allow the story to encompass multiple days.
Thank you for the support. I hope everyone will understand and work with me on these slight publishing changes.
