A First! My First! Self-Published Novel - The Summoning

At the end of September, I navigated the Amazon process for indie-publishing.  I didn't encounter any troubles at all, thank goodness, in publishing The Summoning in Kindle format.  Soon, I plan to publish it in paperback. Here's the blurb and the dynamic cover created by the talented Debbie Taylor:

Heather Morique is a witch. The problem is she doesn’t know it. One month after losing her infant son, her husband Jahill and his mistress perish in an accident. He was a refugee from an obscure branch of the Arawak Indians, and soon after his death, mysterious whispers lure her to his homeland. She soon finds herself in a web of secrets, lies and illusions. Jahill’s obscure branch of the Arawaks worship two gods: Eyrael, a spirit from another dimension, is their God of Wind and Sea. His brother Sofiel is the God of Fire and Earth. The powerful new Shaman has pitted brother against brother, and these two powerful spirits—one light, one dark—battle to remain the tribe’s ruling deity. When Heather unwittingly summons Eyrael, these two unlikely soul mates face a dangerous fate.  More frightening than the buried secrets, Heather and Eyrael discover the chemistry between them almost irresistible.

For those in line to purchase (LOL), here's the Amazon  link.

  The book is only $2.99 but Prime members can read for free!

I'm happy you took the plunge. (Considering your lovely cover, that wasn't exactly a pun.) I've been self-pubbed since 2011 and very happy about it. Good luck with the print version. If you didn't give Kindle exclusivity, be sure to put your book on Kobo (for sales outside the US) and Nook Press. You can put your book on iTunes yourself, but I use Smashwords to do that. Let me know if you have any questions. I'm happy to help.

Your cover is fantastic. And your story sounds so interesting. Best wishes.

Congrats! I'm still mustering the courage to try out self-pub. Hopefully by next year with your inspiration about the ease of self-pub.
