Subject:"The Afflicted" has launched!
Time:06:47 pm
It only took four and a half years or so from inception through final release, but the day has finally arrived. At long last, I am proud to present the official release of my first novel, The Afflicted.

You can read a long sample here:
http://www.furaffinity.net/view/12230112/

If you like it, please consider purchasing the full version from either the Amazon Kindle Store or Smashwords:
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00H3WR07E
https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/384771

In addition to my writing, the novel features chapter illustrations by Corvus Fae AKA Absinthe the Greedy, and a cover illustration by theOwlette, with lettering by RKTDWG.

Please give these artists your love; my book needed art ant graphics to bring it to life, and they all came through for me in a huge way.

Also, please enjoy my novel, and consider spreading the word. :)

Huzzah, you're officially a published author! Congrats!

...just out of curiosity, who was the publisher?

The publisher was that I posted it on Amazon KDP and Smashwords. ^>.>^;

Derp. That's what I get for not paying attention.

Not that I would complain if this got so popular and hot-selling that traditional publishers took notice, mind you!

(Hey, we all have stupid obviously unrealistic "someday I'm going to win the lottery, and then...." dreams. Mine just happen to start with the fact that I still created something, even in the worst case of it not going anywhere. :D)

Congratulations, man! Signed up for Smashwords, bought, paid for and downloaded!

One slight thought - the .pdf download doesn't appear to come with theOwlette's cover illustration! (I suppose in hindsight, this should've been obvious, since I'm imagining the .rtf format version doesn't have graphics of any kind.) Is there any way I could get a copy of it, since I don't have a Kindle or other e-reader?

It's been a long trip to get here - really, really well done for having the patience and determination to see it through! The end result has been so very worth it. :) *hugs you close*

D.F.

http://www.furaffinity.net/view/12247345/ for favoriting purposes ;) And if you go to the Smashwords sale page itself and then click on the cover, it takes you to a super high-res version of it (much bigger than the FA version.)

And thank you so much! For the purchase, for the commenting and proofreading support you gave me along the way, for the kind words now, and really just for everything. :) *happily returns that hug*

Only 4.5 years? Geez, slow down a little next time. :b

In all seriousness, though, congrats on the publication. *earscratch*

Yeah, I know, sorry, I guess I was just in too much of a rush to get it out since it was my first and all. I'll take my time with the next one. :P

And thank you for the congratulations and the earscratches; both are much appreciated. :D *rrrh <3*

There is some fluctuation, but that is about the rough average of the price of a fiction novel ebook on Amazon/Smashwords, yes.
