I shall clasp my hands together and bow to the corners of the world.

The Chronicles of Master Li and Number Ten Ox (all three books, Bridge of Birds, The Story of The Stone, and Eight Skilled Gentlemen) is now available on Kindle for the low, low price of $10. Beat the drums, blow the horns, and make sacrifices to the Fortunes!

And buy this now if you don’t already have the books on your shelf. For my previous review of Hughart’s amazing books, go here.

About George

I am a reasonably successful self-published author ("successful" means I can pay the bills and am highly rated in my Amazon category), former financial advisor (writing is more fun), and have something in common with Mitt Romney and Donny Osmond. Guess.

  1. Self Published? Hummm is that a route anyone can navigate or are there rocks and shoals that should be avoided? I’ve been working on my Novel.. for awhile I’ve got 11 chapters down to the point they are ready for an editor and final rewrites. So I’m starting to see the faintest light at the end of the tunnel. I just don’t know how to share the book with the world.

      Self-publishing is a possible route to take, but keep in mind the steps. You need to find a critical editor or critiquing-editing group (either online or in your own circle of people). You need to get a good cover. You need to have a marketing strategy. Etc.

      I got lucky: I come from a family of readers, and have four sisters and one brother who can give me critical feedback and help me edit. My books fit a narrow genre with a wide and underserved demographic (superhero fiction lovers; there’s not much written for them outside of novel-adaptations of movies and comic books), so I didn’t have to do much marketing to raise reader awareness.

      If your novel fits a popular genre, I would seriously consider trying to find an agent or publisher first. I looked for nearly a year and made nearly 100 queries, but nobody knew quite what to make of my book; self-publishing was my second choice.

      And whatever you decide, good luck!

      • thanks it sort of fits the current popular Urban Fantasy genre So I guess I’ll give the traditional route a chance before I make the heavy lift myself. Yeah I need someone/s to back me up on the technical structure of my writing.. I’ve got “Beta” readers reading it as I go..(to make sure my dyslexia isn’t killing the story) They Like it and bug me to write faster. so the critical feedback I have. Thanks for you help again
