No Longer "Pay What You Want," But Still Lots of Free Books

Wow, I haven't made a blog post since the launch of Mothman's Return? So much for keeping up with this! That being said, it's been nearly two months since the release of the latest Enoc Tales adventure, and I'm making a few adjustments to how I'll be getting these books out to as many people as possible.

First of all, I want to thank everyone who has read "Tale of the Mothman's Return!"

The response for this book has been amazing! By now several people have finished it, and reviews are coming in—and boy are they positive! Here are a few things people have to say about it...

"What an exciting book! I couldn't put it down! Characters, scenes, details...all so clear! This author's knowledge of facts and events is so impressive! So colorful and magnetic...you will be glad you purchased this book! I love it! I can't wait for the next novel by Edison T. Crux!"

"I'm always a fan of Edison's work, and his latest book is no exception. This installment in the series did not disappoint; it was truly a gripping and thrilling story that left me wanting more. Just when you think you have everything figured out, Edison flips expectations on their heads and surprises the reader with his signature twists on monster lore. It's his best storytelling yet."

So to all those who have read and enjoyed this book, a big thank you! Nothing makes me feel better than knowing people actually enjoy what I write.

"Pay What You Want" Special Is Ending—but Something Else Big Is Coming

In my last blog post, I talked about how the ebook versions of all the Enoc Tales stories would be available as "Pay What You Want" PDFs—meaning you choose what they are worth to do. You could even pick one up for free, and come back to pay for it later.

Although I love the Pay What You Want way of doing business, I've decided to go a slightly different route for promoting these books.

The Enoc Tales Ebooks will exclusively be on Amazon Kindle, which you can read on your computer, phone, tablet, or e-reading device. The novels will normally be priced at $2.99, and the shorter stories will be $0.99. 

The reason being is, if they are exclusive to Amazon, I am able to do special free book promotions for Kindle. 

These "free days" are a huge way of boosting visibility on Amazon's site, and really gets the books out there to a lot of people.

Before, I had the Ebook available for free—but no one could find them.

I don't have a big mailing list, and although I have developed a solid start of a following it isn't massive yet. The way I was doing it, no one would know these books were free unless I personally directed them to the site. People couldn't stumble upon them.

Now I can still offer books for free—AND work with Amazon's system to help readers find good books!

Because that's one thing Amazon is very good at. They not only learn from your reading habits, but suggest books that other people with similar tastes as you enjoy. Ultimately, this means the books won't be free all the time, but potentially a lot more people will be able to find them.

Free Ebook Weekends Coming Soon!

Moving forward, you can expect a different Enoc Tales Kindle book to be free each weekend! I have enough books in the series now that I can rotate them. I should be able to have one of the books on a free special every weekend. So if you want to complete the collection, stay tuned to find out which book is free each week!

I'll give you a hint—this Friday Tale of the Twin-City Vampires should be the first to start this new trend! If you haven't read that one yet, this will be the time to pick it up!

As always, thank you all so much for your support! Looking forward to sharing more stories with you.

High-Intensity Interval Writing; How to Write More in Less Time

I check the clock to see it's a little past 4 in the afternoon. For the most part, it's been a lazy day; woke up with some coffee, played with my kids, had a leisurely lunch break. My goal for the day was to crank out some writing on my new book, but I only spent about three and a half hour actually writing.

How much progress did I make? over 4,600 words. Nearly three times the daily number people shoot for during National Novel Writing Month, or what will someday be about 18 pages in the novel. It was a record-breaking number, yet it felt like I hardly worked at all. I threw all those words on paper without stressing, or pressure, or working long grueling hours. What I did that day was sustainable and repeatable, not a one-time fluke success.

What did I do that worked so well? I used the same principle I do with exercise.

Exhausting Year At The Crux Home

I settled in to write this blog post, and suddenly banshee screams filled the house. I went to see what was wrong. Nothing. Nothing at all. Alex—my autistic 4 year-old son—was screaming his head off for no discernible reason. Sometimes he can talk, a little, but he much prefers constant screaming. So far I've tried everything I know of to help calm him down—made sure his tablet is working, gave him reassuring hugs, comforted him—but forty minutes later there's no sign of slowing down.

This is a pretty normal day for me now.
I know I've fallen off the face of the Earth again. My YouTube channel abruptly died, there's been no word from me on social media, and that book that's been "almost finished" for a year is in that same, stranded condition.

It hasn't exactly been a fun year, but it's time I explain what I've been up to (and—with any luck—what you can expect in the future)
What happened? About a year ago, things were going pretty good. My Y…
