Rowanwick Witches series

5 Aug

Since I self-published Rowanwick Witches, Lesson 1: Spells and Enchantments in October 2017, I intend to self-publish the next two volumes this October. They are:

Rowanwick Witches, Lesson 2: Gingerbread

Rowanwick Witches, Lesson 3: Violet and Steampunk Boy

I decided to go ahead and publish both the same year, because I wrote Violet and Steampunk Boy first. It would have been the second book, except I thought there should be at least one more adventure before Aunt Amaryllis allows Violet to fly off on an adventure without her.

Skeleton from the Closet Ebook Available!

12 Oct

The ebook version of my magical realism novel, Skeleton from the Closet, is available beginning this Saturday! It’s only available on Kindle, for $3.99.

The print paperback should be available sometime next week…depending on when I receive the second proof and whether I make changes. I’m doing this a second time just to make absolutely sure the book looks good before it’s official. The first time I self-published a book, my dad went into hospice care and passed away when I was supposed to be proofreading, so I barely looked at the proof. This time, I want to get it right.

I’m currently waiting for the printed proof of Skeleton from the Closet, a magical realism novel that I wrote years ago and recently decided to self-publish. Meanwhile, I got to work on uploading my middle grade novel, Rowanwick Witches, Lesson 1: Spells and Enchantments onto the CreateSpace page, and I’m working on its cover.

For the back cover copy of Rowanwick Witches:

Susan E. Wigget is obsessed with the supernatural and with old houses, especially if they’re haunted. She lives with five cats, four of whom are black. She wrote the ebook novella Witch’s Familiar and the magical realism novel Skeleton from the Closet.

Now the proof for Skeleton from the Closet has been shipped, and I finished up and ordered the proof for Spells and Enchantments.

I’m antsy to receive the proofs and review them. CreateSpace has the option of doing it online rather than in printed form, but I like visual aids: having a version of the book in my hand and writing in it and using sticky notes. The cover is a particular concern, even though I can also see that online; I want to see just how the images turn out. The printed version is exactly what the book looks like unless you make changes (which I’m sure to do).
