The Midnight Eye books sold to Brazil

Still in its early stages, but I've sold the Portuguese language rights to the three Midnight Eye books to a specialist genre publisher in Brazil, for publication in both print and ebook editions.

I'm pretty excited about this as it's my first major foreign language rights deal for any of my books.

New Sales to Report

I sold a novella, Broken Sigil to DARKFUSE. It'll be out as a featured novella in Jan 2014 in limited edition hardcover and ebook

There's a bunch of new short story sales to report

  • Staying Alive Among the Beasts in the Seven Stones anthology from Rockfall Books
  • No Sleep For the Just in the Swords and Mythos anthology from Innsmouth Free Press
  • The Parting of the Veil in Nightland magazine #6 in Japan
  • The Last Magician in the Neverlands Library anthology
  • Green Grow the Rashes in the UFManifesto anthology from Angelic Knight
  • The Penge Terror in The Alchemy Press Book of Pulp Heroes 2
  • In the Gyre in Nightfall magazine
  • And then We Sever on the Horror D'ouvres site at Darkfuse

As ever, there's other stuff brewing I can't talk about yet, but if it all comes off I'll be pretty happy.

My main ebook publisher folded and I had to find new homes for 70% of my work. Almost all done now, but the new versions have had their ratings reset to 10,000,000. If anybody is wondering whether to read anything of mine, now would be a good time to help me out...

It's 6 years now since I left the day job. Can't say that I miss it much.

I'd never have made it this far if it wasn't for the ebook revolution bolstering the print and short story sales. I'll always be grateful for that.

When I went full time I had 5 novels and over 150 short stories in print, mostly in genre presses. In 2007 I started selling stories to pro-rate markets, and that's when I decided that I wanted to see if I could hack it full time.

It was tough going those first couple of years, but when the kindle came along and my books started selling there the finances improved and since about 2010 I've been going strong.

I've got 18 novels in print and ebook, several story collections and numerous standalone shorts. I also now have over 300 short stories sold to magazines or anthologies, many to pro-rate markets. That, plus a number of print editions in luxury hardcovers at specialty presses means I've been able to keep my head above water.

I've got a lot of things in the pipeline for the rest of the year and 2014 so let's hope things keep rolling along...

Hi Willie. Nice to meet you on here. Do you get the impression folk are shy?? They seem reluctant to chat or is that just me?

Hi David... it's always been quiet in here apart from me. It's turned mainly into a noticeboard for my news.

It would be nice to get some more interaction though...

Well, you do post the same stuff on your mailing list & all over Facebook, so most of the interaction tends to gravitate to Facebook. I need to keep a closer eye on this though, as I managed to miss the previous freebie during one of those periods I was too busy to more than glance at Facebook.

I already had this one. Not sure if it was a review copy from you, or bought from Smashwords, but it wasn't in my Amazon cloud, so I grabbed it again, if only to help bump the rating for you.
